Since Tuesday, liberal journalists on CNN and MSNBC have been teaming up with elected Democrats to shoot down the notion that their collective obsession with impeaching President Trump slowed the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The biased coverage argued the “talking point” was “dangerous” and predicted that it would not “pick up much traction.”
Is it "hate speech" when liberals call for people to commit suicide? Occupy Democrats, a very popular liberal Facebook page with more than 8.6 million followers, posted a screencap of a tweet on March 26 that wished for the suicide of two Republican senators.
Earlier this week, Democrats sabotaged Senate efforts to pass COVID-19 relief measures by demanding that their unrelated legislative pet projects be included in any bill. On Monday, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell has discovered the true villain of this story: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for daring to point it out.
It’s as if the left knew what they were doing Sunday and Monday -- switching tunes to now opposing the Senate’s massive, $2 trillion stimulus package to help American workers and the economy. Why? Because as Monday’s broadcast network newscasts showed, the liberal media will provide any and all cover, refusing to assign blame to liberals and progressives pulling the carpet out at the last minute. ABC, CBS, and NBC framed the stimulus package’s failure as merely a “bitter fight” and “political battle” having caused “angry debate” and “frustration.”
On Monday, NBC’s Today show was surprisingly direct in blaming Democrats for the failure of a massive coronavirus relief package in Congress. The network morning show repeatedly made it clear that the “aid package was blocked by Senate Democrats” and even wondered if “this the time to have these kinds of arguments,” while Americans are “desperate” for help.
On Tuesday, far-left weekend MSNBC anchor Joy Reid took to Twitter to conduct an informal poll on whether Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had “credibility.” This is the same Joy Reid who falsely claimed in 2018 that offensive past posts on her now-defunct blog were caused by hacking.
In the wake of the failed impeachment of Donald Trump, the New York Times’ Elaina Plott took a 2,000-word front-page look Saturday at how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has elevated his reputation in the eyes of average Republicans in “A New Image Of McConnell In G.O.P. Eyes.” Plott’s tone was mild, but her word choice harsh: "....Perhaps less obvious, though, is the extent to which Mr. McConnell owes much of his new viability to Mr. Trump -- how his brand of staid ruthlessness has thrived as a counterweight to the brash, whim-driven style of the president."
Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough lashed out on today's Morning Joe at the moderate Republican senators who voted to acquit President Trump. The particular object of their ire was Sen. Susan Collins. Not content to suggest that Collins was "unpatriotic," Brzezinski taunted Collins, telling her to "have fun" with her "legacy" of Ukrainian deaths.
Before Friday’s session of the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC’s hatred was in full display for those who wouldn’t be voting and thinking the way they’ve demanded, lobbing one firebomb after another while simultaneously decrying the lack of bipartisanship and civility.
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.”
Dispensing more of her supposed invaluable expertise, MSNBC’s Deadline: White House host and Republican-turned-lefty Nicolle Wallace boasted Tuesday about the barrage of anti-Trump breaking news developments (like those about John Bolton) being akin to “volcanic eruptions” and voting against witnesses would be “political suicide.”
During MSNBC’s special impeachment trial coverage on Wednesday, Hardball host Chris Matthews couldn’t help himself from comparing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to a cartoon character and whined that the Republican lawmaker supposedly “always gets away with” whatever he does.
