Dispensing more of her supposed invaluable expertise, MSNBC’s Deadline: White House host and Republican-turned-lefty Nicolle Wallace boasted Tuesday about the barrage of anti-Trump breaking news developments (like those about John Bolton) being akin to “volcanic eruptions” and voting against witnesses would be “political suicide.”
On Friday afternoon before the Senate impeachment trial resumed, MSNBC continued to search their mental thesauruses for new ways to describe their dearly beloved lead House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA). What they came up with was to call his Thursday night speech “impassioned and unforgettable” and will be read “about in history books years from now.” To make matters even worse, Schiff was compared to Atticus Finich, Billy Joel, the late Prince, and Bruce Springsteen. Really.
Even though MSNBC isn’t in severe ratings trouble like CNN, executives at that liberal channel are nevertheless considering making big changes to their weekday and weekend schedules. Among the shifts being considered are hiring former Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith and sending Chuck Todd’s “lackluster” MTP Daily program to the 9 a.m. slot on weekdays.
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.
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.”
