If as Michael Kinsley once said, "a gaffe is when a politician tells the truth," Joe Scarborough committed a gigantic gaffe on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on a bill proposed by Dem Sen. Mark Warner that would have made it illegal for campaigns not to report offers of foreign assistance to the FBI, Scarborough said, "all we're doing is trying to stop Russians." "We're" doing? Yup, Scarborough, and his fellow Democrats.
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, the show was fixated on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell commenting last night that he would work to fill a hypothetical U.S. Supreme Court vacancy if one occurred in 2020, as hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota brought up the issue repeatedly across all three hours of the show. Additionally, no conservative commentators were included in the panel discussions even while several liberal contributors including Joe Lockhart, John Avlon, and Catherine Rampell were allowed to give their negative commentary against McConnell.
In a clip that had gone viral on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell humorously declared that he would indeed fill a Supreme Court vacancy if one were to become available during the 2020 election. Pouncing on the “hypocrisy,” CNN host Chris Cuomo angrily proclaimed the elder statesman to be the “poster child” for deceitfulness and “all things wrong with politics.”
A go-to pundit revered in liberal media janitor Brian Stelter’s daily newsletter from Mars, MSNBC’s host Chris Hayes opened Tuesday’s All In by beating the now-mummified dead horse that the Trump-Russia probe is like Watergate except worse because congressional Republicans haven’t decided to push for the impeachment of President Trump but instead become “co-conspirators” in “destroying their own branch of government.”
There's no question that animosity exists on both sides of the political spectrum, but have you noticed how personal it has become for many on the left? It is disturbing how intolerant and filled with rage leftist extremists have become, and how many more people are falling into the category of leftist extremism. But what concerns me as much as this pattern of ill will and abuse from leftists is that it is unchecked by their peers and often applauded.
On Tuesday's The Beat show on MSNBC, host Ari Melber gave an eight-minute commentary complaining about Republican opposition to new gun control laws as the MSNBC host also repeated the discredited myth that Charleston mass murderer Dylann Roof was already a convicted felon who could have been barred from purchasing his gun if not for a "loophole" that allowed him to purchase it after the background check took too long to complete.
One of the most radical schemes that the left has come up with in the aftermath of the confirmations of Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh and declination to confirm Merrick Garland was to advocate court packing. On MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday, co-host Joe Scarborough took it one step further and suggested Democrats add it to a list of national emergencies that they can declare whenever they take back the White House.
There’s a very good reason 81 percent of Republicans have said they won’t watch Sunday night’s Academy Awards, according to a new poll. Hollywood is the Left Coast base of the anti-Trump resistance and over the years they have made their disdain for conservatives very clear. After all, last year’s Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “We don't make films for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.”
In a wild Hardball on Wednesday, MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews spent the latter portion of the program defending the Green New Deal, expressing dismay at Republicans for “mak[ing] fun of” the proposal seeking to address the dangers “we're facing as a species” because of climate change, and defending murderous Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro because National Security Adviser John Bolton isn’t a fan.
After the cast of MSNBC's Morning Joe recently spent time praising Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for helping to end the partial government shutdown, on Thursday, the Republican leader suddenly became a racist for daring to question Democrats' proposed election reforms.
Appearing on Thursday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, aired early Friday morning, former Democratic Senator and newly-named NBC News Political Analyst Claire McCaskill was eager to trash Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as “really depressing” and “very political.” Meyers chimed in to claim that the Republican lawmaker had “no moral compass.”
When you think of Mitch McConnell, you think of Nazi appeasers, right? If you’re a New York Times journalist, maybe so. In an enormous, 26 page piece for the January 27th Sunday magazine, journalist Charles Homans psychoanalyzed the Senate Majority Leader’s relationship with Donald Trump.
