Throughout the entire impeachment drama our self-appointed moral betters in the media have dutifully repeated the Democrats' talking points that this about much more than a mere policy difference. But as the theory that President's Trump's actions could best and solely be explained as a desire for him to get the Ukrainians to investigate Joe Biden succumbed to a lack of provable facts that idea became less and less believable. On Friday's special coverage of the Judiciary Committee vote on the articles of impeachment, Nicolle Wallace and Andrea Mitchell let the cat out of the bag that this really is about a policy difference.
High crimes and misdemeanors what? If you thought MSNBC hosts were severely lacking in their constitutional knowledge before, you have not heard Ari Melber’s latest commentary. During Wednesday’s MSNBC impeachment special coverage, Melber tried to change the standards for impeachment by claiming that no crime is needed for the President to be removed from office.
Appearing on Monday’s Deadline: White House, frequent MSNBC guest Donny Deutsch used a conversation about possible wrongdoing by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as an excuse to perform a monologue addressing “the cancer of Donald Trump,” specifically how “everybody he will touch history will frown upon.” Throughout the segment, host Nicolle Wallace insinuated that Pompeo would soon end up in jail because of his involvement in the Ukraine scandal.
MSNBC hosts Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace, on Wednesday, proclaimed Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s testimony was a “blow torch” to Donald Trump’s defense. After the first part of the hearing was over, Williams came on the air to call it a “blow torch” and “stunning testimony.” His co-host Wallace added that Sondland was “taking a blow torch to every defense Donald Trump has offered....today changed everything.”
If Democrats and their allies in the media are trying to convince the country that the current impeachment proceedings are not a farce, MSNBC's Friday impeachment pre-game show did not help in advancing that goal. According to the assembled cast of journalists and commentators, Republicans were "jerks" who were destroying the legacies of their family members who worked for past Democrat administrations.
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace has been trying her hardest to prove her allegiance to Democrats by trashing the party she used to work for, at every opportunity she gets. Case in point, after cursing at FNC host Laura Ingraham on her program last week, she went on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, Wednesday, to double down on her offensive comments while giggling and yukking it up with the anti-Trump host about how much they both hate Republicans.
While congressional Democrats did their best to make it sound like they were sad about the formalization of the impeachment inquiry, MSNBC’s Jason Johnson had a different take. Appearing on Thursday’s Deadline: White House, Johnson declared “I may be in the minority here. I’m not somber today. I’m thrilled.”
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, who earlier this year said falsely said that Donald Trump is “talking about exterminating Latinos,” on Tuesday struck again. She lashed out at Fox News host Laura Ingraham, calling her “chickenshit.” Wallace played a clip of Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, who is testifying in front of the impeachment probe, and attacked Ingraham and her Fox News guests for criticizing him: “Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman.”
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was dragged into a discussion of President Trump tweeting the word "lynching" to describe the Democratic impeachment drive. MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson tied conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Republicans to the white supremacists who murdered blacks during the Jim Crow era in the South. This in spite of the fact that the perpetrators were typically Democrats while white Republicans were sometimes targeted for trying to register blacks to vote.
Former GOP operative turned MSNBC Republican Nicolle Wallace fawned over far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren after the latest Democratic debate. She wondered if the very smart and “deep” Warren would be harmed by Donald Trump’s “poo-poo head” attacks in a general election. Fawning over Warren, Wallace gushed as liberal MSNBC host Chris Hayes wrapped up his chat with the Democrat: “Senator, the smart part of this interview is over.”
While not in any way a conservative Republican, it’s amazing to consider how insufferably liberal former Bush administration official and failed McCain campaign hand Nicolle Wallace has become and such a reliable lefty for MSNBC. Tuesday’s post-debate coverage provided numerous examples of her progressivism, including her gripe that the debate insufficiently covered impeachment and voicing support for Senator Kamala Harris’s pleas for Twitter to ban President Trump.
Late Tuesday night, MSNBC’s post-debate panel reacted to the 2020 Democratic primary hubbub and, while later spinning that no one had a bad debate, they initially knocked Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as both “annoyed” and “petulant” for being unable to handle incoming attacks as the frontrunner, but swooned over Pete Buttigieg being the second coming of Barack Obama.
