On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace gushed over allegedly right-leaning New York Times columnist Bret Stephens excoriating Senator Ted Cruz in his latest column, in which he cracked that the Texas Republican would "sell his family into slavery" to win an election.
Likely still bitter after having wasted millions trying to make Jeb Bush president, Republican strategist and frequent MSNBC guest Mike Murphy quipped on Thursday’s Deadline: White House that he wouldn’t have used to a time machine to go back in time to stop Hitler but instead change Donald Trump.
Reacting Wednesday to the anonymous New York Times op-ed written by a Trump administration official on MSNBC's Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace seized on the op-ed's mention of the 25th Amendment to call on Congressional Republicans to begin hearings on removing Trump to do their part in carrying out the 25th Amendment
During Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace suggested that a Republican with a “spine” needs to “call on all Republicans to boycott Laura Ingraham’s program until she apologizes for articulating and embracing a racist ideology like disparaging legal immigration.” Wallace and her panel repeatedly brought up the fact that David Duke had tweeted out support for Ingraham’s Wednesday monologue on The Ingraham Angle, which pointed out that America has changed dramatically because of legal and illegal immigration.
Ever want to see the TV news equivalent of a bitter crazy person shouting into the wind? Well, you’re in luck because that’s what MSNBC’s Deadline: White House is like on a daily basis and Tuesday’s installment didn’t disappoint. The assembled guests and faux Republicans bemoaned the lack of passion among elected Democrats and Republicans to impeach President Trump, asserted that the 2020 election will be the most important one since 1864, and engaged in character assassination against House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Since President Trump’s press conference in Helsinki on Monday, many in the liberal media have hyperventilated about how his lack of aggression toward Russian President Putin makes him somehow guilty of treason.
Within mere hours of President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin concluding, cable news had worked themselves into a frenzy that suggested the sky itself must be falling. While criticism of Trump’s foreign policy decisions – especially those pertaining to Russia – has been bipatisan, the sheer meoldrama of the liberal media’s comments suggested they had lost sight of what they were even covering.
During Wednesday’s edition of Deadline: White House, the show's Democratic and faux Republican panelists were not having a good day, complaining about Justice Kennedy’s decision to retire from the Supreme Court, which means that President Trump will get to pick his successor.
Former Republican and MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt has been suffering near daily meltdowns over the Trump administration for some time, but the last week saw a level of desperation. On Tuesday’s Deadline: White House, Schmidt vilely suggested that the Supreme Court’s travel ban ruling for the Trump administration “was a fantastic fulfillment of Osama bin Laden's vision” for America in causing “a war of civilization...between the West and 1 billion Muslims.”
On Monday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt railed against President Donald Trump and his supporters as the former Republican-turned-Democrat complained that the Trump "faction" is "trying to impose systematic cruelty upon all the rest of us," and even threw in a Hitler reference as he invoked "Munich circa 1928." Even though the former John McCain campaign strategist last week announced via Twitter that "I renounce my membership in the Republican Party" and pledged to vote for Democrats in the future, he was still credited on screen as a "Republican strategist."
Over the past week, as the dominant media have been fixated on President Donald Trump's push to more aggressively prosecute those who cross the border illegally, there have again been questionable claims that illegal immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than the native-born population. But the studies cited either do not make a distinction between legal and illegal immigrants, or do not look at whether those who sneak across the border illegally have a higher crime rate than those who simply overstay visas. The media also continued to ignore other studies which suggest illegal immigrants do, in fact, exhibit a higher crime rate.
On Thursday's Deadline: White House on MSNBC, during a discussion of the White House's efforts to enforce immigration laws, the panel descended into hyperbole as host Nicolle Wallace actually likened the government to the MS-13 gang as she charged that the Trump administration is "terrorizing children" by separating them from their parents, as required by law.
