Friday, CNN media correspondent and self-appointed defender of the free press Brian Stelter joined the network's pre-game panel discussion to talk the latest impeachment developments and to applaud Sen. Chuck Schumer for going after Fox News.
The impeachment trial of President Trump has only been underway for a couple of days, and already one of the liberals reporting for the ratings-challenged CNN channel is criticizing members of the Senate for not paying sufficient attention to the speeches made by the Democratic managers from the House of Representatives. One of the people angered most by the “lazy” officials was John Berman, co-host for the New Day morning program on that network, who claimed on Thursday: “[I]I’s not like the future of the Republic is at stake. Oh, wait. It is.”
During breaks in the trial action happening on the floor of the Senate Wednesday, Democratic senators would make their way to their friends in the liberal media to get some softball questions served their way. A common narrative CNN and MSNBC were trying to get the senators to agree to was a conspiracy theory that suggested Republicans were not taking the trial seriously, with many of them not even present in the chamber. Unfortunately for the media, things didn’t go the way they were expecting.
With fruitless attempts by Senate Democrats to prematurely vote on witnesses and documents for the impeachment trial stretching deep into Tuesday night, something they and the liberal media decried when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wanted to do it for opening arguments, CNN’s heavily liberal panel praised the Democratic impeachment managers for doing what they were doing.
In appearances on both MSNBC's Morning Joe and CNN's New Day today, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer repeatedly accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of going along with an alleged "coverup" by President Trump of the impeachment trial, "hook, line, and sinker."
For two days in a row, The View has given Democrats in Congress a platform to bash President Trump over Iran and impeachment. Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff was the satellite guest and today it was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s turn to take softball questions from the liberal hosts.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sat down with Univision’s Enrique Acevedo as part of the run-up to the trial of President Donald Trump before the United States Senate. In addition to negotiating the rules of the trial in Public, Schumer was all too happy to pander to Hispanics’ respect for the Rule of Law.
Who died and made CNN senior political analyst John Avlon the bearer of what’s right, wrong, partisan, and non-partisan? Well, apparently his smug attitude and lectures Americans out in Trump country is on-brand for CNN and boss Jeffrey Zucker. On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, Avlon proclaimed that the President’s “embarrassing” letter responding to his impending impeachment would cause Republican Senators to raise questions about his “mental state.”
Congressional reporter Carl Hulse enjoyed piling on Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell just a bit too much in Wednesday’s lead New York Times slot: “Pressure Mounts On Senate Leader To Secure Ballot – Some in G.O.P. Softening – McConnell Impedes Bills, and Seethes Over Tag of ‘Moscow Mitch.’” It’s Hulse’s favorite kind of story: Democrats gleefully putting Republicans under pressure, with Hulse cheering them on. Hulse tends to condone whatever political tactics the Democrats use against Republicans, however disreputable they might be: "Democrats pressed their advantage. And why not? The hashtag #MoscowMitchMcTraitor was trending on Twitter, and Senate Republicans of all stripes were being asked about the blockade."
Wednesday evening was not a good time for MSNBC analyst Howard Fineman, who posted a tweet containing a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attending a party hosted by longtime New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. However, the newsman soon had to remove his tweet since it embarrassingly showed both liberal leaders being forced to stand outside the building because the event drew a very large crowd, a development described as “genuinely hilarious” by the managing editor of a news website.
Remember, folks, CNN wants you to think that CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon is merely a “CNN anchor” and an objective journalist instead of a left-wing pundit. Keep that in mind as, while opening Wednesday’s show, he gloated about how the President’s suffering a “losing streak” to the point that he put on an “embarrassing” performance in the Rose Garden.
Reacting to yesterday's short-lived meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Morning Joe panel hurls a string of insults at President Trump: "stinks, complete idiot, pathetic."
