Deep breaths, Chris. On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host/pundit Chris Matthews asserted that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s entire job (aka “mandate”) is to, instead of letting the chips fall where they may, “unearth any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia” because that’s “what he was set to find.”



Does John Berman see himself as a news host, or is he auditioning for a late-night, Trump-trolling, "comedy" gig? The question arises after CNN's Berman, on this morning's New Day, suggested that President Trump is "full of schiff."



A few segments before his unhinged rant suggesting prayer should be outlawed concerning tragedies like the California bar shooting and that gun rights don’t come from God, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for the President and acting Attorney Matt Whitaker by screeching out of the blue at friendly panelists. This bizarre tangents came to a boil when he didn’t so much ask a question of The Washington Post’s Robert Costa as he did blurt out that Trump has “got steel [balls] to pulls this off” by firing Sessions and replacing him with Whitaker.



For all of the characters that make up the Jeffrey Zucker-led circus at CNN, perhaps no one speaks in hyperbole more than longtime liberal journalist and CNN analyst Carl Bernstein. In separate appearances Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Bernstein reacted to the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions by calling it a “coup” by “a rageaholic President...who has no understanding of the importance and primacy and rule of law in our system.”



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.”



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.
