Awww, hopefully everyone at MSNBC leaves tonight with a comfort animal of their choice. In the first few minutes after the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday, panelists were livid that there wasn’t enough Trump bashing to the point that they wondered whether the candidates consciously decided that the President became a real-life Voldemort who’s name “will not be mentioned.”
In recent appearances on MSNBC, far-left commentator and former CNN contributor Sally Kohn has again been spreading misinformation on the government's handling of illegal immigrants as she has repeated incorrect claims that legal asylum seekers were separated from their children. She also accused Republicans of having "systemically intimidated, threatened, and cracked down on" both "documented and undocumented immigrants."
On Sunday's Kasie DC show, during a segment on the new abortion laws passed by a number of conservative states, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt only made room for reactions from liberals as Planned Parenthood president Leana Weng and National Urban League president Marc Morial were allowed to participate in the segment.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, during a discussion of the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump, NPR's Maria Hinojosa suggested that he be impeached for separating illegal immigrant families and putting children in "cages," characterizing it as an "abuse of power," even though she has herself admitted that the Obama administration did similar things. In fact, she did so more than once.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura show on MSNBC, during a panel discussion lambasting White House officials like Kellyanne Conway for pushing "lies" and "propaganda" in their press appearances, the show made an on-screen misspelling that seems unlikely to have been an innocent typo as the chyron misquoted Conway as saying President Donald Trump "commended" neo-Nazis.
MSNBC's Ali Velshi seems to love the word "bifurcated" since he couldn't stop yelling it at possible presidential contender Howard Schultz on Friday. Velshi kept repeating "bifurcated" over and over and over again as if it was a weapon to be used to attack the former Starbucks CEO for the high crime of possibly splitting the anti-Trump vote in 2020.
The media spent Tuesday morning rushing to Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s aid, after she was criticized from both parties for making an anti-Semitic comment on Twitter, (not her first.) Politico first ran a story praising Omar as a “superstar villain” for the right, while MSNBC took that headline and ran a segment on MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, trying to spin the Democrat scandal as a problem for Republicans.
During special coverage of President Trump’s immigration speech on MSNBC Saturday, anchor Joy Reid interviewed former Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo. The discussion focused on President Trump’s immigration speech, with the two arguing about whether both sides or just Republicans deserve blame for the stalemate that led to a government shutdown. As she tried to make the case that Republicans alone deserve the blame, Reid falsely claimed that Republicans blocked President Obama from passing immigration reform during his first year in office.
It was a round-up of freak-outs on Sunday’s edition of Up With David Gura, where they discussed comments made by outgoing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times. Guests on the panel used the platform to make a veiled comparison of President Trump to Hitler as well as to push the false assertion that “there’s no such thing as an illegal immigrant.”
On Saturday's Up with David Gura, during a panel discussion of the Florida gubernatorial race, frequent MSNBC guest Elie Mystal -- editor of AboveTheLaw.com -- charged that Republicans are "beneficiaries of racism" as he praised Florida Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum trying to link GOP nominee Ron DeSantis to racists.
After Christine Ford's testimony, Lindsey Graham described her to reporters as a "nice lady who has come forward to tell a hard story." How dare Graham insult a woman that way! Reacting to it during the subsequent panel discussion, Brian Williams archly asked MSNBC legal analyst Daniel Goldman: "when he calls her a nice lady?"
On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show on MSNBC, host Ali Velshi joined in the liberal news network's recent spate of Bible-thumping to justify left-wing policy as he actually took out a large Christian Bible and read from it on camera. He also voiced agreement with his guest, Father James Martin, as the Jesuit priest declared that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "weaponizing the Gospels and the Bible" against illegal immigrants.
