MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews took on an apocalyptic tone in the first half of Thursday’s show hours after the release of the redacted Mueller report and at least one panelist embraced it. In the second half, Matthews and his guests lobbied for Democrats to impeach President Trump with Matthews comparing America to being in a commercial break of a Law & Order episode awaiting a possible trial.
Thursday’s Hardball didn’t disappoint as host Chris Matthews and his motley crew provided screaming Notable Quotables that will take multiple posts, but the first half provided plenty to start with, including an apocalyptic opening from Matthews, a first of many pleas for impeachment, and similarly doomsday-level talk from two guests.
As those on Twitter have probably seen by now, CNN eventually started allowing conservatives on their airwaves by the late Thursday afternoon hours after the release of the Mueller report and Mary Katharine Ham didn’t waste the chance to own more than a few libs and their “operation in gaslighting” maintaining Trump’s guilt. And in contrast to Ham’s masterful takedown, liberal CNN political commentator Symone Sanders lashed out by suggesting that, if America had a real “justice system,” the President would be arrested.
Dearest readers, spare a thought for the folks at CNN because, as Thursday wore on, they’re having a difficult time accepting reality of no collusion and no charges on obstruction of justice following the release of the Mueller report. Between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN Newsroom was filed with media statements divorced from reality.
After a Thursday morning of losing touch with reality both before and after the release of the Mueller report, the CNN ostriches insisted that the President obstructed justice, the report is “pretty bad,” “very damaging,” Republicans are charting a legacy where lying about Russian contacts is acceptable, and the Mueller team want Congress to determine Trump’s guilt through impeachment.
In the first hour since the liberal media had time Thursday morning to sift through the Mueller report, the CNN analysts and hosts masquerading as Loony Tunes characters were distressed the Mueller team didn’t make a ruling on whether President Trump obstructed justice. But on the other hand, they cheered the report’s ten instances of possible obstruction constituted a “road map” for the House to impeach the President.
Was Hardball host Chris Matthews speaking to viewers Wednesday night from the past? Because it sure felt like Matthews had rewound back to March 22 because, just as things were on the day the Mueller report officially concluded, the mood of the MSNBC pundit was DEFCON-1 screeching all hour about how the Mueller report rollout “looks like an inside job.”
Has Chris Matthews developed amnesia and forgotten about his borderline erotic love for Barack Obama? And did Omarosa forget about her line about Trump critics that sounded like she was channeling the Superman line “kneel before Zod?” On Tuesday’s Hardball, that must have been the case for both as they repeatedly mocked “Stepford Vice President” Mike Pence’s “unflinching support and adoring gaze” for President Trump as if he were “the Lord.”
MSNBC’s Hardball took quite a bizarre turn on Tuesday when far-left MSNBC contributor Zerlina Maxwell attempted to sing the praises of colleague Malcolm Nance when fellow panelist Andrew Sullivan blurted out “Jesus Lord” in disgust that Maxwell (or presumably anyone) would cite such a “complete fantasist” who “spreads so many conspiracy theories and nonsense.”
A recent episode of Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos’ “Real America”, now shown on Facebook Watch, builds upon a series of historical inaccuracies and sophistries in order to aid and abet the ongoing effort to soft-sell democratic socialism.
Univision’s foray into digital media comes to an expected and, with the announced sale of its digital media portfolio. As the Spanish-language media giant limps back to its core business, it’s worth looking at what led to this point, and what follows from here.
As the issue of Puerto Rico funding was in the national news again, the liberal media turned to their favorite anti-Trump personality on the island, Bernie Sanders presidential campaign co-chair and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, as opposed to Governor Ricardo Rosselló (D) or the territory’s sole non-voting representative in Congress, Jenniffer González (R).
