While the liberal media on-site spent portions of Thursday chastising President Trump for his Ingraham Angle interview in the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial prior to his moving speech marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews told viewers that he was uneasy with his colleagues in the press “talk[ing] nasty boy politics in front of the graves.” How refreshing!
Both ABC and CBS managed to keep the sacredness of the 75th anniversary of D-Day intact Thursday by keeping divisive domestic politics largely out of their flagship evening newscasts that night. But NBC once again proved that they kept little above exploiting every opportunity to go after President Trump and pushing for his removal from office. NBC Nightly News was particularly excited this time because Politico had reported that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was looking to put the President in prison once he left office.
During an exclusive interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at D-Day commemorations in France on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell worried that the Trump administration’s push to reduce illegal immigration may “threaten” the “values” that World War II troops “fought and died for.”
Weighing in on the controversy over whether Facebook should have taken down a doctored video clip portraying Nancy Pelosi as a drunk, New York Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo says we should instead fight the real enemy: “The Problem Is Fox News, Not Facebook.” The text box: “Misinformation online has nothing on Murdoch TV’s lies.” Manjoo called Fox "the million-pound forked-tongue colossus that dominates our misinformation menagerie."
At a gathering of Democrats in California on Saturday, 2020 candidates and party leaders stoked the hate of their base. But there was something of a backdraft when Speaker Nancy Pelosi took the stage and was drowned out by the crowd as they demanded she begin impeaching President Trump, much to the seeming excitement of ABC’s Good Morning America on Sunday. The network had the added bonus of Democrats pushing for gun control.
If there ever was a quintessential Hollywood celebrity that thinks they possess more intelligence and common sense than the majority of Americans, that lowly individual would be Jimmy Kimmel. On Thursday night, the notorious Trump-hating late night host pandered to the liberal California audience and his peers in the media by asking a series of softball, ludicrous questions to the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.
Along with constantly hammering President Trump, talk show hosts occasionally divert their attention to support a liberal when they perceive that Democrat official is in trouble. That was the case on Thursday evening, when Daily Show host Trevor Noah rushed to the defense of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi because the California Democrat was the target of a viral video that made her seem impaired. Instead of criticizing Pelosi, Noah went all the way to the other extreme by sarcastically claiming that “all Internet videos are fake!”
The hosts of The View spent last Friday defending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and made a repeat performance on this Friday’s show, after Democrats and the media pressured her to start impeachment proceedings. The hosts took turns between fawning over Pelosi and then ranting that the “criminal in the White House” needed to be impeached.
Two videos mocking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were hot topics heading into Memorial Day weekend. One distorted and slowed down a Pelosi speech at the Center for American Progress to create the impression she was drunk. The other one was an edited package of Pelosi’s very real verbal blunders and stammers that aired on Fox Business.
Sometimes, you sincerely have to wonder if MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough hears himself. After giving candidate Donald Trump the friendliest media platform during the 2016 GOP primary, Scarborough switched to Trump hatred. On Tuesday’s Morning Joe, Scarborough compared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi impeaching Trump to President Abraham Lincoln freeing the slaves. No, really.
On Tuesday’s show, the hosts of ABC’s The View conflated two unflattering videos starring Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that circulated social media late last week. While only one video was altered, the co-hosts claimed both were “fake,” angrily came to Pelosi’s defense, and demanded that both “doctored” videos needed to be taken down.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's AM Joy, liberal MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson spewed vitriol at several Donald Trump administration members as he called for the President's impeachment, declared that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had essentially been pushed to say "I hate black people," and that HUD Secetary Ben Carson was exposed to be a "sexist fool." He also claimed that he would burn his copies of Dr. Carson's bestselling book, Gifted Hands.
