In the moments after Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) announced late Thursday that he would not support witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC rhetorically curled up in the fetal position over the “Jim Crow” and “submissive” GOP engaging in a “cover up” and “an extraordinary act of self-abasement” that’s left America in “a very scary moment.”
It is always a sad day for the media when they realize that the Republican Party that exists in the real world is nothing like the one that exists on their large impeachment panels. MSNBC congressional correspondent Kasie Hunt had that revelation on Wednesday where she lamented that there was no John McCain-esque figure to defy President Trump and Mitch McConnell on whether to call additional witnesses.
Former RNC chairman Michael Steele is the kind of Republican whom MSNBC loves as he is more than willing to repeat the latest liberal talking points about President Trump. He continued that tradition on Thursday's MSNBC Live when he endorsed Harvard professor Laurence Tribe's latest hairbrained scheme that House Democrats should refrain from delivering the articles of impeachment to the Senate until Senator Mitch McConnell gives into their demands that Republicans hear from witnesses that they themselves refused to hear from.
On Thursday’s Hardball, MSNBC political analyst Michael Steele reminded viewers why there’s no reason to consider him a conservative or Republican. Not only did Steele bash the investigations into the deadly Benghazi terror attack and Operation: Fast and Furious, but he seemed to express disappointment with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) for not leaning toward impeachment.
Michael Steele's got a good gig going as an MSNBC political analyst. And if that means that the former RNC Chairman must throw fellow Republicans under the bus, well, a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do. And thus there was Steele on Joy Reid's MSNBC show on Saturday morning. Steele said American Conservative Union leader Matt Schlapp and other supporters of President Trump are "embarrassing, pathetic, desperate, sycophants."
Once again, pompous leftist, MSNBC host, NBC News political director, and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd cloaked himself as someone who’s above the fray on Wednesday’s MTP Daily, insisting that he’s like “a lot of us who — who don’t live in partisan places.” Todd’s delusional take simultaneously occurred while decrying Republicans as the ones playing political games by criticizing President Trump on Syria but opposing his impeachment.
Leave to a former National Review editor and former RNC chair to lament their former cohorts aren’t doing the supposed right thing. On Thursday’s Hardball, MSNBC political analysts Robert Costa and Michael Steele pinned blame on a devout affinity to President Trump, a “conservative media complex,” and a love of partisanship on the right for why the Republican Party have refused to join Democrats in their push to impeach and remove Trump.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe stooped to a new low on Monday morning when the assembled panel refused to condemn 2020 Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld’s insistence that President Donald Trump should be put to death because, in his mind, he’s committed treason for his conversations with the Ukrainian president. Not only that, but Weld twice made this case while panelists Mike Barnicle, Mika Brzezinski, Elise Jordan Joe Scarborugh, and Michael Steele refused to push back along with fellow Trump challengers Mark Sanford and Joe Walsh.
Responding to the President’s latest self-inflicted error Tuesday by questioning the loyalty of Jewish voters to their faith, MSNBC’s Hardball all but memory holed the whole reason the kerfuffle arose to begin with, which was the blatant anti-Semitism from Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
There comes a time when everyone needs to take a holiday, so it would behoove Chris Matthews to heed this advice soon. Seeing as this past week of Hardball has proven to be a stumbling block for new, creative ways to insult President Trump, Wednesday night’s episode followed the same, banal pattern.
I have to admit it is breathtaking. There is one media figure after another simply making up American history from scratch. In particular the history of presidents speaking to the nation on the Fourth of July, not to mention the presence of tanks and other military hardware at national celebrations in Washington.
On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor/Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan openly speculated whether President Trump has told the CIA to not carry out covert operations or compile intelligence against North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and that he would willfully accept help from the Russians to get him reelected.
