MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch sure managed to pack an awful lot of anti-Trump venom into a thirty-second soliloquy. Appearing on Deadline: White House Wednesday, Deutsch asserted that “history will really frown on the Republicans” before describing President Trump as a “slimeball.” Deutsch’s rant came as part of a larger conversation about the House Democrats’ new obsession with money laundering when it comes to the Russia probe.
How extreme is MSNBC? According to analyst Nicolle Wallace, if someone disrupts Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night, the President is to blame. Live coverage anchor Brian William wondered if there would be a “you lie,” moment, referencing Congressman Joe Wilson’s outburst during the 2009 State of the Union.
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host and former Republican Nicolle Wallace was in denial about the existence of racism within her new home on the left as she ridiculously claimed that "there isn't a strain of racism on the left." Her comments came during a discussion of Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King's flirtations with white nationalists that have drawn condemnation from fellow Republicans.
For a year that featured Joy Behar’s anti-Christian tirade on The View, faux conservatives making fools of themselves on cable news, Jim Acosta’s nuttiness, and Samantha Bee’s ugly use of the c-word against First Daughter Ivanka Trump, 2018 provided an inordinate amount of content for the NewsBusters staff. Following the precedent set in 2016 and 2017, the following post gives you, the readers, a look at the top ten posts of 2018 based on traffic.
On MSNBC, ripping President Trump over the shutdown, an overwrought Elise Jordan declared that Trump "won't skip paychecks" as a result of the shutdown. Technically that's true, since by law the President is deemed an essential employee. But Jordan is apparently unaware that Trump has never cashed a presidential paycheck, donating each one instead to different government departments to fund good works.
This week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2018. Today, we finish the series with some of the most obnoxious celebrity quotes of 2018. TBS’s Full Frontal host Samantha Bee was so enraged at Ivanka Trump she hurled one of the worst epithets you could at a woman, as she called Donald Trump’s daughter a “feckless” c-word.
Over the past 10 days, journalists on CNN and MSNBC have dutifully repeated the Democrats’ claim that “the walls are closing in” around President Trump. Cable hosts and their guests have used this precise verbiage a total of 50 times since December 10 – and that’s not including the instances in which Democratic politicians repeated the assertion on TV.
Of course, the journalists at MSNBC had to psychoanalyze the body language of the Presidents attending the funeral of George H.W. Bush. Chris Matthews weirdly declared, “I think Prince Charles felt more comfortable in New Guinea than this President felt here today.”
During Tuesday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace used reports of Ivanka Trump using a personal e-mail account to promote a story by The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake highlighting a long list of scandals and conflicts of interest involving one or more members of the Trump family. Wallace and her panel discussed some of these scandals, including Kellyanne Conway selling Ivanka Trump’s dresses on TV and Donald Trump Jr. allegedly lying to the FBI.
On Monday afternoon, MSNBC host Katy Tur gave a commentary in which she fretted that her life may be "pointless" because news anchors like her do not cover "climate change" every day as she also predicted wildfires and storms will keep getting worse because of human activity. She then brought aboard global warming alarmist Michael Mann and gave him an unchallenged forum to complain about inaction as the two alleged that there is no longer any scientific debate over the matter.
On Wednesday's Deadline: White House, liberal MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude managed to include two myths in his commentary as he repeated a discredited claim that President Barack Obama received "exponentially" more death threats than any other President, and also suggested President Ronald Reagan was "hypocritical" on race as he wrongly claimed Reagan "declared his candidacy" in Neshoba County, Mississippi.
During Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel devoted almost an entire segment to praising the “powerful” and “persuasive” Oprah Winfrey. Wallace went on to talk about “the Oprah effect happening right in front of us as the TV superstar knocked on doors stumping for Stacey Abrams, the Democrat running for Governor there.” Wallace urged her audience to “listen to what Oprah told the crowd at a campaign event this afternoon and judge for yourself the potential impact this rare, coveted endorsement will have.”
