On Friday's PBS NewsHour, liberal commentator Mark Shields made a very odd historical comparison -- the 2020 Democrat presidential contenders were like American revolutionaries of 1776, fighting a president who is somehow like King George III, the tyrannical English monarch.
During MSNBC's coverage of the Nevada caucus, Joy Reid says that by tweeting that he will not let the Democratic establishment stop him, Bernie Sanders is "kicking to the curb" 65 million Hillary Clinton voters, among others. Reid also describes as "Trumpy" Sanders's criticism of the Washington Post for waiting until one day before the Nevada caucus to release the month-old news that the Sanders campaign had been briefed on the fact that Russia is seeking to intervene to aid his campaign.
On her Friday afternoon show, MSNBC host Katy Tur was again beating the climate alarmism drum as she devoted a segment to fretting over the fact that Bernie Sanders is the only presidential candidate advocating all 10 action items called for by the left-wing environmental group, Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund.
Tim Allen's Mike Baxter is on a mission to teach exchange student Jen (Krista Marie Yu) about capitalism in Last Man Standing's February 20 episode "Baked Sale," as she figures out the best way to earn money on behalf of the Geology's club bake sale. Mike also has some choice words for capitalism's staunchest detractors in the Democrat race for president.
On Wednesday afternoon, MSNBC host Ali Velshi talked up the liberal push for a single-payer health insurance system as he discussed the plans proposed by Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, touting the "generous" benefits promised, but not dealing with the down sides like the rationing of health care.
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle on Thursday, RealClearPolitics associate editor A.B. Stoddard labeled the Democratic Debate in Las Vegas an “unmitigated disaster” and warned that if socialist Senator Bernie were to win the nomination, “it would be the end of the Democratic Party.”
While discussing Wednesday night’s contentious Democratic debate, on Thursday morning, NBC’s Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie worried that the “non-Sanders” candidates were in a “circular firing squad” and wondered if the “moderate lane” would start to consolidate in the coming weeks.
Pity the poor liberal media. The Democrats staged a nasty debate last night, and the man who emerged the "big winner" was none other than... President Trump! So said Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch on today's Morning Joe. Making matters much worse, Donny divined that Bernie Sanders is "rolling" toward the nomination, yet has "no shot" at beating Trump. That left poor Donny "panicked. Absolutely panicked."
After a 11:00 p.m. Eastern hour Wednesday in which MSNBC couldn’t decide whether to feel pleased or upset with the feisty Democratic presidential debate, Thursday’s midnight Eastern hour took a turn toward concern that millionaire socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) emerged unscathed on what “was a great night for Donald Trump.”
Many of Hollywood’s effete actors might be all for socialist, billionaire-busting 2020 candidates like Bernie Sanders or Liz Warren, but the guys who call the shots and foot the bill in the entertainment industry might be into a racist billionaire for president this year.
Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show predicts pure doom and despair for Democrats. A.B. Stoddard predicted that at tonight's Democrat debate in Nevada, the candidates are sure to focus their fire on Mike Bloomberg, letting Bernie Sanders off the hook. That in turn would lead to his nomination. Stoddard foresaw Sanders getting "slaughtered" in the general election, with President Trump winning a "huge mandate." Steve Schmidt then said that a Sanders candidacy, given his plan to take private health insurance policies away from 150 million Americans, would be a "death sentence" for the Democrats. And John Heilemann envisioned Bernie and Bloomberg "slugging it out" for months to come, leaving the Democrat party unable to put itself back together.
Remember the CNN motto "Facts First"? On Tuesday's The Lead with Jake Tapper, during a panel discussion of Bernie Sanders vs. Michael Bloomberg, no one corrected far-left guest Mehdi Hasan of al-Jazeera America when he bolstered Sanders by wrongly claiming Bloomberg was a Republican "for many, many years until 2018."
