It was another par for the course night of nonsense on Hardball Tuesday, featuring MSNBC host Chris Matthews waxing-poetic about past presidents providing leadership in challenging times compared to Donald Trump. His panelists then suggested his rhetoric led to the death of Latinos in El Paso that he truly doesn’t care about.
The folks over at MSNBC have created a "heads I win, tails you lose" approach to President Trump and Republican policy towards Russia. The same network that has come up with "Moscow Mitch" for Republicans being allegedly too soft on Russia now claims Trump is giving Vladimir Putin "a gift" by withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, because Russia refuses to come back into compliance.
Always out to make the Republicans look bad, on Thursday night’s All In, MSNBC host Chris Hayes decided to smear the entirety of the Republican Party since the Reagan era as racists. Hayes began by introducing a recently uncovered 1971 phone call recorded between then-President Richard Nixon and then-California Governor Ronald Reagan, in which Reagan, in a moment of human imperfection made some less-than-decent statements about African people.
During Wednesday’s edition of The Beat With Ari Melber, the eponymous host shared some “new information and context for President Trump’s race-baiting rhetoric and discriminatory policies.” This “new information” came in the form of indefensible comments from then-California Governor and Future President Ronald Reagan and the then-President Richard Nixon, which Melber gleefully used as a lynchpin to attack Republicans and conservatives as racist.
After the first night of the Democrat debates, NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers clearly took sides with the socialists over the "moderates." He compared Elizabeth Warren to Ronald Reagan as global visionaries, and then compared Warren and Bernie Sanders to the basketball superstars Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. The "moderates" were compared to the Washington Generals, the team that always loses to the Harlem Globetrotters.
On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, speaking as someone who unequivocally proclaimed "I want Donald Trump to lose," said that last night's debate was a "disaster" for Democrats. Scarborough made a four-pronged argument: first, Dems went after each other rather than attacking President Trump. Second and third: the unanimous Dem support for health-care-for-life for illegal immigrants, and for making illegal entry into the US no longer illegal, will lose the Dem candidate several states. Scarborough also said Biden's performance might have been the "most disturbing" he's seen since Reagan's first 1984 debate.
When Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough runs out of things to use in slamming President Trump, the MSNBC anchor is more than happy to instead roast someone who is a member of the GOP official’s administration. That was the case on Monday, when Scarborough used an interview of Mike Pompeo by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to hammer the secretary of state as “a joke” and “a disgrace” who “made a fool of himself” while lying for the President.
How extreme is Bill Maher? The Real Time host gets really angry when anyone says something nice about Ronald Reagan. And it was six years ago yesterday that Maher melted down, trashing the “race-baiting” two term president as “the man most responsible for our decline.” What set Maher off? Other liberals saying that the current GOP is so extreme, it’s too conservative for even Reagan. On June 7, 2013, he sputtered, “: Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race-baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual."
Reacting to yesterday's short-lived meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Morning Joe panel hurls a string of insults at President Trump: "stinks, complete idiot, pathetic."
Looking for leverage to get the Democrats to fund a flame-shooting border wall, President Trump promises to refuse to resupply the International Space Station until Democrats agree to the funding in the May 19 episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President. Pitting suffering astronauts against the president, media reports cause Trump to begin to lose support. He even loses support from loyal Trump supporters like Sean Hannity, along with Ann Coulter who appears on Hannity’s show.
During Sunday evening’s edition of Life, Liberty & Levin, Mark Levin blasted the report released by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as demonstrating that “our very republic is at stake” because several vital aspects of our nation have “broken down.” The Fox News Channel host pointed to the separation of powers, the rule of law and the media -- which he also described as an “unfree press” -- as being responsible for the nation having “a mob mentality” because half of the people want to “continue the coup” against President Trump.
One of the rotten fruits produced by what passes for today's American education system is the ignorance some young people have about socialism. According to a new Harris Poll given exclusively to Axios, the news and information website, Generation Z (comprised of those born in 1995 or later), “has a more positive view of the word ‘socialism’ than previous generations, and — along with millennials — is more likely to embrace socialistic policies and principles than past generations.”
