Go ahead and criticize President Trump’s Mika tweet, but there’s no denying this was disturbing. On Thursday’s Hardball, MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews compared the President to not only communist Ethiopian dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam and a modern-day Romanov but also channel Benito Mussolini having son-in-law Jared Kushner murdered.
On Wednesday, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were all over the latest developments in the Russia investigation saga. They mainly focused on how former FBI Director James Comey received permission from Special Counsel Robert Mueller to speak to Congress. Among the developments that didn’t make the cut for ABC's and CBS's evening programming, were a series of subpoenas issued by the House to former high-ranking members of the Obama administration for improper unmasking. Instead, they mentioned those issued to Trump associates.
Opening Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie assured their liberal viewers that with President Trump back from his overseas trip they were going to guarantee that the Russia investigation was the top headline. Guthrie welcomed the audience by announcing: “The President’s back from his overseas trip, but some of these same headlines persisting.”
The liberal network shows were all busy Sunday morning pushing accusations and speculation about President Trump and his adviser Jared Kushner. Their discussion was driven by more anonymous sources telling The Washington Post that Kushner tried to set up a backchannel discussion between Trump and the Russians to talk about Syria. The hysteria was also present on NBC’s Meet the Press, but theirs was shattered by The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel after she introduced facts to the discussion.
The liberal media have been circling and acting as though they smell blood in the water since The Washington Post reported that close Trump adviser, Jared Kushner wanted to set up a back channel with the Russians so Trump could discuss Syria. This, on top of reports that investigators would like to simply talk with Kushner and ask him some questions. The prowling continued on CNN’s Inside Politics on Sunday, where they painted Kushner as “treacherous” before offhandedly noting that he was not a target roughly 50 minutes later.
On Friday, all three network morning shows began with anchors breathlessly declaring that President Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner was “under scrutiny” in the FBI’s Russia investigation. However, after offering the screaming salacious headlines, each broadcast quietly admitted that Kushner was not the target of the investigation nor was he accused of any wrongdoing.
Showing that he’s somewhat incapable of shame, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews re-upped and defended on Tuesday night his comparisons of the Trump family to the ultimately-slaughtered Romanovs and Saddam Hussein’s murderous sons Uday and Qusay.
A ring-leader of the loony bin that is MSNBC just can’t let it go. On Wednesday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews pedaled for the second time in nine days (and third time in as many days for the network) the devilish insinuation that Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner are akin to the murderous dictator Saddam Hussein’s equally-horrific sons Uday and Qusay.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was at it again on Monday with his wacky comments, this time comparing President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner to Uday and Qusay Hussein —the murderous adult children working for their ruthless father and Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
Avengers director Joss Whedon, who has has been praised for empowering women on film, used his bully pulpit to demean the President’s daughter this week, proving once again that feminism only cares about liberal women.Whedon, best known for television shows like Buffy and movies like The Avengers, seems to have gone off the deep end since the election. A little over a week ago he tweeted that he wanted Paul Ryan “f***ed by a rhino;” this week, he went after Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner in a crass tweet.
Continuing on the theme of comparing President Trump to the infamous world dictators, Hardball host Chris Matthews likened Trump on Tuesday to North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and resurrected a tasteless joke from Inauguration Day about Trump channeling Mussolini if he executed son-in-law Jared Kushner.
