NPR has invited on a rotating group of liberal and conservative panelists in recent months for their Week In Review panel on All Things Considered. On Friday night, they rigged that system by matching a topic with a "conservative." The topic was whether Sarah Huckabee Sanders was right to complain that the media "attacked me personally." The "conservative was Jennifer Rubin -- described by NPR host Ailsa Chang as the "Right Turn" columnist for The Washington Post -- who is precisely one of those who have attacked Sanders, harshly and personally.
Seemingly running out of things to talk about or ways to spin how much trouble President Trump finds himself in, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews compared the President to a ship captain stuck “in a typhoon” making America a “Third World” country who’s struggling with his mental faculties.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of the Tea Party movement's origin and evolution, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin charged that the movement is "angry about race" because President Donald Trump gave them permission to be, and ended up calling the GOP a "wackadoodle party." Host Joy Reid oddly continued to identify Rubin as "conservative" in spite of all the liberal positions she has taken on a number of issues since she began appearing regularly as a commentator on MSNBC.
A group of House Republicans dropped a bombshell on Washington, D.C. Wednesday night when they introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. They allege Rosenstein had been stonewalling the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees in not turning over documents they requested for months. But those facts be damned on MSNBC’s All In where Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin declared they were the ones “obstructing justice”.
During Friday’s edition of HBO's Real Time, panelist and leftist documentary maker Michael Moore reiterated a point frequently made by host Bill Maher that “fascism is at the doorstep” and issued a call-to-action: “The vast majority believe in women’s rights, environmental stuff, don’t put people in jail for using drugs. All of that stuff, the majority are with us. We are the majority. Why don’t we start acting like we’re the majority?” Maher seemed pessimistic about America’s future, pointing out that “now, you can’t get back the Court.
On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC contributor and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin declared that Sarah Huckabee Sanders deserves a "life sentence" of being harassed publicly as she asserted that the White House press secretary "has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss" because of her negative interactions with the press. The phony conservative columnist also freaked out over the possibility of abortion being banned, and suggested Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins are "phony pro-choice women" if they vote for President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
We don't even know who President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee will be, but Jennifer Rubin thinks she can prevent his pick from being confirmed by the Senate. Half of her strategy involves telling Maine-headquartered L.L. Bean that it should threaten to "leave Maine" unless Pine Tree State Senator Susan Collins votes against Trump's nominee, and then follow through on that threat if she supports him or her. We'll stop there for a moment to let readers catch their breath.
In the aftermath of a horrific shooting at a local newspaper office in Annapolis, Maryland Thursday afternoon, whom did the media immediately blame? Not the shooter, of course, but President Trump. From cable news to social media, journalists and media outlets irresponsibly sent out provocative tweets directly or indirectly blaming the president for supposedly inspiring the deadly shooting, even as reports revealed the shooter had a personal dispute with the paper, in 2012.
Quick, grab the smelling salts and clear the fainting couches. President Trump's pardon of conservative author Dinesh D'Souza last week violently triggered Beltway media elites. It's peanut butter, weed pollen, gluten, manspreading, Chick-fil-A, the national anthem, and Kryptonite all rolled into one giant political allergen. Allow me to administer the rhetorical, metaphorical antihistamine.
On Wednesday night, Decision Desk HQ’s Varad Mehta astutely flagged down this stealth edit by The Washington Post as, while faux Republican writer Jennifer Rubin’s blog is still referred to as the “Right Turn blog,” her biography now claims that she supposedly publishes articles “from a center perspective.”
In the latest example of a zany rant from a fake conservative, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC political analyst Jennifer Rubin reacted to the Michael Cohen raid on Tuesday’s All In by declaring that the Trump-Russia probe is worse than Watergate and that Democrats must win in November to defeat Republicans who have violated their oaths of office.
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.
