If Democrats and their allies in the media are trying to convince the country that the current impeachment proceedings are not a farce, MSNBC's Friday impeachment pre-game show did not help in advancing that goal. According to the assembled cast of journalists and commentators, Republicans were "jerks" who were destroying the legacies of their family members who worked for past Democrat administrations.
The panel on The D.L. Hughley Show Monday weighed in on the impeachment push and the whistle-blower scandal that triggered it, making sure to trash President Trump and his supporters throughout their discussion. Throughout the rancor-filled opening segment, host D.L. Hughley referred to President Trump as “the most unexceptional man in history” and trashed Congressman Devin Nunes as an “ignorant a**-kisser.”
Like most other late-night hosts on TV, the star of Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC has been relentless in his hostile “jokes” about President Trump. However, the weeknight comedian may have finally begun running out of comments against the GOP official since on Tuesday night, he went even further than usual by attacking two of his sons. Regarding the crisis at the border, Kimmel sneered, “If Trump really wants to put kids in cages, he should start with Eric and Donald Jr.”
New York Times reporter Nicholas Fandos has for two years spun in favor of the Democrats’ Russian collusion theory, supporting Robert Mueller and Democrats on the committee, especially ranking member (now chairman) Rep. Adam Schiff. He did so again after Republicans demanded Schiff resign from the House Intelligence Committee in Friday’s “Demands for Ouster at Explosive House Hearing.” Fandos’ revealed his apparent disdain for the Republican move: "It went downhill from there."
“We’ve looked at the top social media companies. Twitter always ends up being the worst of the bunch,” MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor said on Trish Regan Primetime on Fox Business on March 19.
Wednesday on MSNBC, NBC senior media reporter Dylan Byers scoffed at the notion that some conservatives were being targeted on social media platforms, calling it a “comical” conspiracy theory that in reality, “does not exist.” These comments came in response to President Trump attacking Twitter and Facebook for anti-conservative “discrimination” Tuesday and after Republican Rep. Devin Nunes put out a lawsuit against Twitter for “shadowbanning” his account in 2018, among other concerns.
Social media companies cannot simply censor content without expecting consequences. So it should come as no surprise that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is suing Twitter for $250 million in damages. In a complaint filed on March 18, Nunes stated that Twitter “shadowbanned conservatives,” ignored lawful claims of abuse, and censored content based on political ideology. Nunes told Fox News host Sean Hannity that same night that, “This was the first of many lawsuits.” He believed that the abuse he received on Twitter was “an orchestrated effort.”
It’s that time of the year as seemingly every news organization offers reflections on the top stories of 2018. But no year-in-review compilation would be sufficient for a site like this one without a post dedicated to the buffoonery offered to the masses by MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews. Following previous wrap-ups at the end of 2016 and 2017, 2018 offered dozens of possible nominees.
During Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, the eponymous host interviewed former CIA Director and NBC News senior national security analyst John Brennan, who obviously criticized the President’s order to release “highly classified documents” related to the Trump-Russia probe. Brennan has made his contempt for President Trump perfectly clear, previously accusing the President of “treason” following his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this summer.
During his decades-long career, Jim Carrey has gone from being a popular comedian and movie star to a rabid liberal who thinks "half the country" is "cheering the locomotive that will kill them. He has diverted his creative energy into the political arena to bash his favorite target: President Donald Trump, as well as other people in the Republican Party.
Wednesday saw the latest edition of CNN’s New Day co-host Chris Cuomo throwing down with Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan as the topics du jour featured calls for a second special counsel, Russian collusion, and a Thursday meeting of congressional Republicans having access to some of the most sensitive documents related to the Trump-Russia probe.
During Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough had a surprising recommendation for viewers: “If you don't want to hear the truth, you can change the channel!” Scarborough made the remark after fiancé and fellow co-host Mika Brzezinski finished an interview with anti-Trump Republican Max Boot, who noted in an opinion column from the Washington Post “the five political norms that President Trump violated in just the past week.”
