Gag me with a gavel! On her MSNBC show on Christmas Eve, Nicolle Wallace's Christmas gift to Nancy Pelosi was an opening segment that was nothing short of a love letter to the Speaker.
During the “Powerhouse Roundtable” portion of Sunday’s This Week on ABC, some on the panel of left-wing journalists shared concerns about Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) tactic of refusing to hand over the Articles of Impeachment against President Trump to the Senate. On top of that, there were worries about the public’s minimal interest in the proceedings.
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.
The New York Times was unhappy with Trump’s “6-Page Diatribe” Trump to Speaker Nancy Pelosi attacking her for the looming vote on his impeachment. A jump page to Wednesday’s lead story featured this text box: “A missive full of unproven charges that ignores the evidence.” Fact-checker Linda Qiu also tackled what she called Trump’s “rambling and angry letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi.” But in her rush to correct him point by point, several of her corrections fizzled.
Appearing on MSNBC’s 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Thursday, liberal historian Jon Meacham hailed the supposed “formidable legacy” of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and proclaimed that the impeachment of President Trump was “an extraordinary political achievement” for the left-wing lawmaker.
The View hosts followed the media’s lead in attacking President Trump on Wednesday’s show, over his lengthy letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defending his actions before the House votes on impeachment, later today. Even though The View hosts have a reputation for their own angry meltdowns and fact-free rants, they fretted the letter revealed the hysterical rantings of an unstable president, who should be removed from office.
Andrea Mitchell isn’t even trying anymore. The veteran liberal journalist on Wednesday co-anchored live impeachment coverage and gushed over the “remarkable,” “dignified” Nancy Pelosi, lamenting that she must face off against the “profane” Donald Trump. Regarding the six page letter the President sent Pelosi, Mitchell derided it as “partly profane, angry, vituperative letter filled with exclamation points.”
The Morning Joe crew revels in imagining President Trump's supposed pain over his impending impeachment.
Liberals in the media will often say that bias is in the eye of the beholder. But simply looking at each week’s Time magazine shows a stark difference between how the sunny, happy Democrats are portrayed and apocalyptic, often terrifying Donald Trump. It’s no surprise that the legacy media outlet chose teenage environmental extremist Greta Thunberg as the 2019 Person of the Year. But this issue of Time is no aberration. Media Research Center analysts looked at every Time cover since Trump took office in January of 2017. The magazine has portrayed the President as a dictatorial monarch, someone screaming with his hair on fire and a man literally in over his head as he anticipated drowning in the Oval Office.
While the U.S. House of Representatives’ impeachment hearings were playing out in the background, MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews turned to Jon Meacham, the channel’s liberal presidential historian, and asked him to discuss House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of this “opportunity” to attack Donald Trump and try to throw him out of office. Of course, Meacham replied that the impeachment was indeed “a solemn moment” for the Democrats because the Republicans have become a “monarchal party,” and the President has been “acting in a kingly fashion."
Unlike CNN, MSNBC’s Hardball didn’t surrender its entire hour Wednesday to the House Judiciary Committee debate on the Articles of Impeachment, but considering all the nonsense uttered by host Chris Matthews and an assortment of guests, perhaps it would have been better to follow CNN’s lead.
In the lead-up to the 2016 election, Democrats fretted openly about the possibility that Donald Trump, being a rather poor sport, might refuse to acknowledge an election loss. To be fair, Trump refused to state that he would accept election results, depending on the circumstances: “I'll keep you in suspense,” he stated in his Oct. 19, 2016, debate with Hillary Clinton. Clinton, for her part, called his statement “horrifying,” adding that he was harming American democracy.
