As seen in the mashup, Morning Joe taunts PresidentTrump with a barrage of insults, casting the election results as a huge loss for the President, and depicting him as "freaked-out, weak, battered, confused."
Most people don’t burn their bridges until after they’ve crossed them, but Jim Acosta seems to have no trouble doing that while he’s still going across. At least, that’s the way it seemed when CNN’s chief White House correspondent got into a heated exchange with President Trump during the press conference on Wednesday regarding the approaching immigrant caravan. Soon after the clash ended, Chris Wallace, anchor of the Fox News Sunday program, hammered the correspondent’s behavior as “shameful” and asserted that Acosta “embarrassed himself today” by hammering the President with question after question after question.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews opened Wednesday’s show following the midterm elections and the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on a tour de force, deeming Sessions’s axing “a lightning strike” by the President as he “struck out at his enemies,” including Special Counsel Robert Mueller because it “threatens Trump’s family, his presidency, and perhaps even his liberty.”
Just over an hour after CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his White House credentials suspended in light of his latest act of showboating, AC360 gave him a hero’s welcome while CNN argued in a statement that “this unprecedented is a threat to our democracy” while Acosta asserted that “they’re trying to — to shut us down.”
During MSNBC’s hysteria-heavy afternoon show Deadline: White House on Wednesday, two guests of host and failed former Republican Nicolle Wallace diagnosed America as now in the midst of a “national emergency” and on the verge of a “constitutional crisis” that translates into people needing to “take to the streets” to protest the Trump administration’s firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Vanity Fair’s Joe Pompeo wrote on a web-based internet phenomenon that political “junkies” (to coin a phrase) are obsessed with: “Certain Readers May Have a Nervous Reaction’: The New York Times Election Needle Is Back, with a Few New Safety Feature -- After the trauma of November 8, 2016, the Times is taking steps not to trigger its readers -- even as it rolls out not one, but two midterm-election needles.” The needle injected Democratic political addicts with a false sense of well-being. And managing editor Joe Khan revealed a bit too much about the special snowflakes that populate his paper’s newsroom.
After Wednesday’s free-wheeling and tense White House press conference, CNN went on the offensive against President Trump, illustrating a level of self-centeredness that’s unrivaled in the media and showing petty levels of emotion on-set reacting to the President’s condemnations and tense exchanges with chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, political analyst April Ryan, and PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor.
Only hours after the midterm elections, on Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show was already looking to the 2020 presidential campaign, eager to discuss which Democrats were “getting serious about taking on President Trump.” In addition to some of the usual names, the report also touted Democrats who went down to defeat on Tuesday as “future stars” of the party.
Donald Trump and CNN battled in an incredible post-Election Day press conference on Wednesday. The President slammed Jim Acosta as a “rude” and “terrible person.” At one point, Trump told Acosta to sit down as a White House aide tried to take the microphone away from him. More, including a transcript will be posted shortly. For now, see the video below.
On Morning Joe, Willie Geist says that President Trump would like nothing more than for House Dems to launch an impeachment investigation. Geist says it would be "the Kavanaugh situation multiplied times a thousand."
With Democrats winning control of the House of Representatives during Tuesday’s midterm elections, on Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show was giddy over the prospect of liberal lawmakers using their “newfound political power” to “flex their muscles” and launch a series of investigations into the Trump administration.
On the last weekend of the 2018 midterms, the media decided an ad by President Trump was “racist” and therefore they refused to air it. CNN, NBC, Facebook, and even Fox News took that position. Why can't it be news when an illegal immigrant shoots two cops dead and laughs about it in court?
