Following the revelation on Monday that the FBI had raided the office of Donald Trump’s lawyer, the recent developments in Syria took a back seat on MSNBC’s evening shows. However, Hardball host Chris Matthews found a creative way to tie the stories together: by predicting the President would bomb Syria to distract from the raid.
In another sign of extreme cowardice and censorship of conservatives, The Atlantic and editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg decided to fire conservative and former National Review writer Kevin Williamson on Thursday after just over two weeks since the announcement following vicious backlash to the hiring. The excuse was holding a pro-life position about women aborting children facing the death penalty, but the reality is that it only served as an excuse to pull the trigger.
On Monday, political commentator Charlie Sykes made a guest appearance on MSNBC's Hardball With Chris Matthews, wherein he disparaged both President Trump and his base. Among his bolder assertions was the claim that the President's base didn't care "whether he actually accomplishes anything," so long as they saw him "fighting."
Offering the latest installment of her deep-seated disdain for President Trump, MSNBC’s Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace blasted the President during Wednesday’s show as “a bleep-hole” for considering whether to terminate Andrew McCabe before his official retirement from the FBI.
On Tuesday’s Deadline: White House, MSNBC’s pundits continued their pattern of shameless anti-journalism coverage. While in the midst of a discussion about the latest Trump-Russia collusion story, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters and MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes went on the warpath against Trump for his recent tweet calling for an investigation of longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and former FBI Director James Comey for mishandling of classified information.
After Kellyanne Conway and President Trump blasted the very liberal Democrat candidate running for the Alabama Senate seat against Republican Roy Moore, the liberal media reacted with an uproar at the audacity of Republicans encouraging voters not to vote for Democrats.
On Friday, Jake Tapper promoted his Sunday State of the Union panel on Twitter like this: “we have two Dems and two GOPers.” One of the alleged Republicans was Charles Sykes, author of the book How The Right Lost Its Mind. So I tweeted back: “Rhetorically, that's one Republican and three Democrats.” Sykes proved it on Sunday, attacking Rick Santorum for having no integrity insisting Clinton scandals are "completely irrelevant."
You can tell when a fight between conservatives delights liberal journalists. Charles Sykes, who had conservative credentials as an author and talk-show host, wrote an angry book for the never-Trumper called How The Right Lost Its Mind. Washington Post book reviewer Carlos Lozada enjoyed Sykes writing that in victory, Republicans won't need an "autopsy" like 2012, but an "exorcism of the forces that have possessed and, ultimately, distorted conservatism.”
Former conservative radio host Charlie Sykes appeared on MSNBC’s MTP Daily on Thursday to promote his new book How the Right Lost Its Mind. And in an embarrassing show of self-flagellation, Sykes whipped himself for his past life of being a conservative radio host before making his way into the arms of the liberal MSNBC as a news analysis. All of his self-loathing was for the amusement of host Chuck Todd, who prodded his guess along, and to get into the liberal network’s good graces.
The media’s new favorite conservative, recently retired Milwaukee political talk show host Charlie Sykes, was predictably lauded bin the August 27 edition of the New York Times' Magazine. Sykes spoke to the magazine’s Ana Marie Cox, a liberal journalist who has a regular slot on the Talk page at the back of the paper’s Sunday magazine where she talks to personalities from various fields, but often she focuses on fawning over liberal guests and challenging conservatives.
On Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes joined substitute host Nicolle Wallace -- formerly of the Bush administration -- for a "recovering Republicans" therapy session as the two discussed the Republican health care plan, and, true to form, Sykes made jabs from the left in spite of being a supposedly right-leaning analyst.
Appearing as a panel member on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, MSNBC contributor and former talk radio host Charlie Sykes displayed the latest example of why he is the type of right-leaning figure that liberal outfits like MSNBC include who will join liberal analysts in bashing Republicans. Sykes took aim at Fox News supposedly not informing its Republican-leaning viewers on the nefarious activities of President Donald Trump, and likened conservatives to a "cult" that always supports "Dear Leader" and "Orange Deuce."
