It’s been an awful, infamous, and nightmare-inducing week for MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews. Wednesday was infinity worse as swing Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement. All day, Matthews has been off his rocker, screaming about the need for a vicious fight by Democrats to stop a new ninth justice from being seated. He even angrily shouted at Steve Kornacki for doing, well, absolutely nothing. That being said, it set the table for Hardball.
It was all about social justice during the 2018 BET Awards on June 24, hosted by Jamie Foxx.
Rarely does a CNN panelist come out swinging in defense of a Trump administration nominee while going after a Democratic Party senator. But on Wednesday, CNN's Philip Mudd, who like most on-air personalities at the network has been harshly critical of the Trump administration and its officials, reacted strongly to harsh questions California Democrat Kamala Harris directed at Trump CIA nominee Gina Haspel.
For this installment of if the parties were reversed, the Thursday evening and Friday morning broadcast network newscasts refused to cover possible 2020 presidential candidate and Democratic Senator Kamala Harris (Calif.) joking on The Ellen Show about killing President Trump, Vice President Pence, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Fox News Channel’s Hannity naturally covered it, but the other mention of this sick joke was MSNBC’s First Look, which airs in the 5:00 a.m. Eastern hour prior to Morning Joe.
The fashion magazine Vogue's newest political feminist heroine is California’s ambitious new liberal Democratic senator, and Vogue made the most of their access to push her as the next president (and first female president). Abby Aguirre tries hard to convince us of Harris’s commanding (yet also stylish) presence in black pearls and stillettos, in classic Vogue style: "Harris's political career -- seven years as district attorney in San Francisco and then another six as attorney general of California -- amounts to an extraordinary run of firsts."
Demonstrating a staggering lack of self-awareness, on Thursday, MSNBC Congressional Correspondent Garrett Haake promoted pro-abortion Democratic California Senator Kamala Harris declaring: “...we have to have smart gun safety laws. And we cannot tolerate a society and live in a country with any level of pride when our babies are being slaughtered.”
The New York Times featured another jab at that reliable target of liberal media loathing, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Reporters have been tittering at the thought of the fiscal conservative being obliged to change his tune to secure help for his home state of Texas, battered by Hurricane Harvey. NYT reporter Matt Flegenheimer took his turn in Saturday's “Trump and Harvey Push Cruz to Adjust His Style.” The online headline was slightly smarmy: “Ted Cruz 2.0? Senator Adjusts With Trump in Office and Houston Under Water.”
On Tuesday and Thursday nights, liberal MSNBC hosts Ari Melber and Lawrence O’Donnell lobbed softballs at Senator and possible 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (Calif.) on issues ranging from DACA to the Russia investigation to single-payer health care.
Appearing as a panel member on Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson -- known for his many race-obsessed comments and his column at The Root -- fretted that, allegedly unlike white men, California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris would face questions about her "competency" if she runs for President in 2020.
New York Times reporter Matt Flegenheimer celebrated the Democratic Party’s latest 2020 hope with some newly minted feminist mythology included: “As Democrats Drift, The Expectations Rise for a Rookie Senator.” The online headline: “Senator, (Un)Interrupted: Kamala Harris’s Rise Among Democrats.” The Times is prolonging the opportunist feminist myth that Harris was a victim of sexist interruptions by Republicans (never mind that Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is interrupted by Democratic congressmen at hearings without any handwringing from the feminist left)
BREAKING NEWS: GOP members of the Senate Intelligence Committee are sexist. That according to CNN New Day at least. On Wednesday morning, CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffery Toobin confidently proclaimed that Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was interrupted during Tuesday’s hearing not because she was out of control, but because Republicans are sexist.
Americans For Prosperity won a huge court victory in California Thursday against that state's hard-left vindictive attorney general, Kamala Harris. Naturally, the national press is doing what it does when it doesn't want to cover a story: letting the Politico cover it and then pretending that this suffices.
Harris demanded that AFP provides the section of its not-for-profit Federal Form 990 identifying its donors. Anyone with an ounce of sense knows, despite Harris's lip service to confidentiality, that her motivation is to have the names leak out so that donors are subject to the kind of public intimidation to which those who supported the pro-traditional marriage Proposition 8 in California were subjected in 2008. Judge Manuel L. Real in the California District Federal Court forcefully denied that demand (HT Powerline). Deceptive headlines at two of the state's largest newspapers betrayed clear displeasure with the result.
