The faux Republicans hired by MSNBC are known for their wild use of hyperbole during their anti-Trump screeds. But political analyst Steve Schmidt set a high bar for himself during Monday’s 11th Hour when he went on a loud tirade slamming the President for how he responded to the news his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen was raided by the FBI. And he was so happy about the raid, he claimed: “you can hear the faint applause from heaven of this country's founding fathers.”
On a news day otherwise dominated by talk of the alleged chemical attack in Syria, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace flipped the script on Monday and spent an uninterrupted, commercial-free hour salivating over reports that FBI had raided the office of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
In the midst of covering the unfolding active shooter situation on the YouTube campus in San Bruno, California on Tuesday, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace interrupted her commentary on Deadline: White House because she thought the sound of someone popping open a soda can somewhere near set was gunshots.
HLN conservative S.E. Cupp has been on a roll this week with her show (S.E. Cupp Unfiltered) drawing attention to the media’s massive liberal bias. First, a CNN host admitted he let an anti-gun teen get away with falsehoods, then she and her panel tore into the media for unfairly smearing Trump’s recent hires as unqualified talking heads. On Thursday, she ratcheted up the criticism by calling them out for being hostile to conservative views and hiring ones whose principles were squishy.
One could say that it was late on a Friday afternoon, but then again, this is MSNBC’s Deadline: White House and liberal Republicans offering fear-mongering prognostications are nothing new. On the March 16 edition, host Nicolle Wallace led a band of MSNBC Republicans as each offered assessments ranging from bragging about smearing Sarah Palin to arguing the President’s tariffs will cause a depression to ironically complaining about having to discuss porn.
During his political-centric monologue on Thursday night, “America’s Conscience” and ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel quipped that he’s “never wanted to see and not see anything more than I either do or do not want to see” a Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels sex tape and lobbied for donations to her legal defense fund so any sex tape(s) and/or explicit photo(s) can be made public.
NewsBusters analyzed MSNBC’s coverage of the first eight hours that followed after both the Flynn and McCabe stories broke. Within these designated periods, the network spent a total of 379 minutes (78.9 percent of the full eight hours) discussing Flynn’s alleged transgression, but only 21 minutes (4.4 percent) on McCabe’s, amounting to roughly 18 times more coverage of Flynn.
Offering the latest installment of her deep-seated disdain for President Trump, MSNBC’s Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace blasted the President during Wednesday’s show as “a bleep-hole” for considering whether to terminate Andrew McCabe before his official retirement from the FBI.
On her 4:00 p.m. ET MSNBC show Monday, Deadline: White House anchor Nicolle Wallace was eager to dismantle the “mythology at the White House” that President Trump possessed any “humanity” whatsoever. That nasty rhetoric then prompted panelist Donny Deutsch to play armchair psychiatrist and trot out his favorite attack line that Trump was a “sociopath.”
MSNBC journalists suffered another meltdown on Tuesday. This time, Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace demanded that a “truth teller” be placed at every Donald Trump event to combat his lies. Reacting to the President’s briefing with the Prime Minister of Sweden, Wallace excoriated: “Nothing he says is true.”
On Thursday, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace delivered another hour of breathless panic about Trump’s America, including a segment in which she repeatedly tried and failed to bait former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice into disparaging the President.
On Sunday's AM Joy, the show's panel of former Republicans joined far-left host Joy Reid in freaking out over the idea of encouraging some school teachers to carry concealed weapons to combat attacks on schools with Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin calling it President Donald Trump's "dumbest idea," Michelle Bernard fretting that teachers will shoot black students, and Kurt Bardella excoriating NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch as a "paid mercenary" who "has no soul," and is displaying "idiocy."
