On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski claims Elizabeth Warren won the Democrat debate by rejecting stereotypes about what women should avoid, and instead being "aggressive" and "pissed off" and living her message. If Democrats were smart, they would have one, cardinal criterion when it comes to picking their presidential candidate: who has the best shot at defeating President Trump. But Mika Brzezinski seems more interested in choosing a champion for her brand of in-your-face feminism. And thus it was on today's Morning Joe that Mika declared Elizabeth Warren the big winner of last night's debate because "she was aggressive, she was pissed off."
When Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough runs out of things to use in slamming President Trump, the MSNBC anchor is more than happy to instead roast someone who is a member of the GOP official’s administration. That was the case on Monday, when Scarborough used an interview of Mike Pompeo by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to hammer the secretary of state as “a joke” and “a disgrace” who “made a fool of himself” while lying for the President.
The first Democratic presidential debates are scheduled for NBC and MSNBC on June 26 and 27. The Comcast-owned networks have just announced a team of five moderators for the 20 candidates who are allowed to participate, or one moderator for each four contenders. Let’s review this tilted team of liberal journalists/activists.
Friday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes made some unusually ridiculous statements surrounding the ongoing push by the liberal media to indict President Trump. Hayes began by showing a clip of Fox News host Sean Hannity criticizing recent comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claiming she wanted to see Trump “in prison.”
If there’s one thing to admire about Hillary Clinton, it’s her persistence. She persistently fails. She and Bill bombed their recent speaking tour. She failed both times she ran for president (when both times the DNC poised her to win) and she failed as Secretary of State. Now she wants to fail as a Hollywood producer. According to Bloomberg, Hillary Clinton and her media groomed daughter Chelsea plan to start a film and TV production company. Apparently, CNN (Clinton News Network) isn’t enough.
Another liberal politician who worked for the Obama administration is going to work for a network, this time ABC. Just hours after Democrat Rahm Emanuel stepped down on Monday, the 55th mayor of Chicago was quickly snapped up as a contributing editor and columnist for the liberal Atlantic magazine and by ABC News as an on-air contributor.
The New York Times Magazine has posted its Sunday cover story on ABC's The View, touted as "The Most Important Political TV Show in America." Behar lamented that Hillary Clinton made a big mistake not coming on the show more than once in 2016 so she could show she was a "gregarious grandma." ABC wanted to help her win, and she didn't cooperate!
Shock-jock radio host Howard Stern sat down with ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos for a Nightline interview that aired in parts on Monday’s Good Morning America. Stephanopoulos was very interested in letting the radio host rant about not “helping” Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election by having her on his show, beforehand.
When it comes to Trump, the media elites relish capturing and promoting every spoonful of Republican internal warfare, savoring every dollop of any Republican who trashes Trump behind his back. If it was the McCains and Flakes who publicly denounced him publicly on Capitol Hill, that was covered. If they're nameless and faceless? That's news, too. But when Democrats start ripping each other, they see it as Ma and Pa having a fight and hide it shamelessly.
On the front page of Monday’s New York Times, political reporters Astead Herndon and Lisa Lerer were given room to celebrate Democratic female candidates under the pseudo-clever headline: “Women Who Won Are Asked if They Can Win.” (Why are they trailing so badly in the polls then?) The text box on the jump page: “The misogyny Clinton faced in 2016 resurfaces for 2020.” (So that’s why they’re trailing so badly: Misogyny.) Rather than question her, Herndon and Lerer set the table for Gillibrand to make her case: "Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York had a request: Before anyone mocked her claim that she was the Democratic presidential candidate best positioned to take on President Trump, at least listen to the evidence."
Failed Comedy Central host Jordan Klepper bragged to an audience that the Clintons had the "guts" to put a comedian on stage with them in the nation's capital, unlike the White House Correspondents Dinner. He was the paid jester to the Bill and Hillary stage show. No "guts" were necessary.
Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a reprieve from wandering the woods of upstate New York to make an appearance during Wednesday’s The Rachel Maddow Show. The MSNBC host was ecstatic to have the former Secretary of State on her show once again; this time to talk about the findings of the Mueller Report and bash Attorney General William Barr for executing the duties of his office.
