On Tuesday night, MSNBC’s Hardball stated in the A-block that the illegal immigration detention centers (yes, the ones the far-left thinks are concentration camps) are solely a Trump administration phenomenon and prove that America is “no longer....a haven for people around the world.” NBC correspondent Cal Perry reported from one such center in Homestead, Florida and proclaimed that “these facilities are designed very purposefully” with sinister motives.
The New York Times must have regretted missing out on the misleading and slanted coverage of the rest of the press earlier this month, when multiple outlets blared the claim that housing child migrants at Fort Sill in Oklahoma would be locking them up in a former Japanese “internment camp.” But the paper made up for it with Ben Fenwick’s coverage of a subsequent protest on Sunday: “Protesters Denounce Camp Plan for Child Migrants.”
Defending Joe Biden over his remarks about having worked with segregationist senators, Joe Scarborough says that Franklin Roosevelt did the same, and as a result, "FDR passed Social Security, passed the New Deal and he saved this country and saved poor people like my parents in the Deep South." In fact, the New Deal did nothing to "save the country." The Depression lingered after its adoption and it was only sometime after the beginning of WWII that the emerged from the Depression.
Was Chris Matthews about to get another “thrill" up his leg? During an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Tuesday, the MSNBC host got sentimental, dreamily reminiscing about Joe Biden’s time in the White House and his bromance with President Obama.
Like other primetime hosts at MSNBC, Lawrence O’Donnell spends most of the time during his Last Word weeknight program slamming President Trump as guilty of committing treason and therefore deserving immediate impeachment. Of course, it came as no surprise that he used an interview with The Hollywood Reporter website and magazine to assail the GOP occupant of the White House as “illiterate” and having no ability to handle complexity.
On Monday's New Day show, CNN devoted a segment to the story of a Romanian baby, Constanin Mutu, who was taken from his father by Border Patrol last year as they arrived to seek asylum, and hinted that it was somehow nefarious for the Trump administration to do so before the zero tolerance policy had been announced publicly.
The press rose as one in outrage Wednesday upon learning that Fort Sill, an Army base in Oklahoma, which is being used as a temporary shelter for migrant children, had been used as a Japanese internment camp during World War II. One fact buried and downplayed: Fort Sill was also used to hold migrant children as recently in 2014, under the administration of one Barack Obama. But at the time, it seems that zero media outlets who covered the controversy made the connection between World War II internment and the Obama administration’s housing of migrant children.
The current economic expansion could “make history” if it lasts through July, but Bloomberg BusinessWeek pooh-poohed its 10th anniversary saying “no one’s partying” in the June 10 issue.
Only the most partisan person would begrudge prayers for the president of the United States, but a recent visit by President Trump to the mega McLean Bible Church in Virginia has rubbed some congregants the wrong way. The White House informed the church with only a few minutes notice that the president would be coming to the service after finishing a round of golf at a nearby course. It was a Sunday on which some Christian leaders had called for special prayers for the president and others wished to pray for the victims and relatives in the recent shooting in Virginia Beach.
PolitiFact has gone many months in between making judgments on Barack Obama comments. It must have made their liberal bones ache to give him a "Mostly False" for shamelssly un-factual comments he made about America in Brazil, like this: "Anybody can buy any weapon, any time without much, if any, regulation. They buy it over the internet. They can buy machine guns."
While the media have been eager to use the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion as an occasion to smear President Trump, 10 years ago, coverage of the day went very differently. In 2009, as Barack Obama prepared to attend the first D-Day anniversary of his of presidency, MSNBC's adulation of him reached new heights when then-Newsweek editor Evan Thomas told Hardball host Chris Matthews that Obama was “sort of God.”
Along with many comrades in the liberal media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was incensed that all of President Trump’s adult children joined him on his State Visit this week to the United Kingdom, belly-aching on Tuesday’s show about the “ridiculous” modern-day “Romanovs” going overseas projecting a sense of royalty.
