Leave to a former National Review editor and former RNC chair to lament their former cohorts aren’t doing the supposed right thing. On Thursday’s Hardball, MSNBC political analysts Robert Costa and Michael Steele pinned blame on a devout affinity to President Trump, a “conservative media complex,” and a love of partisanship on the right for why the Republican Party have refused to join Democrats in their push to impeach and remove Trump.
It's been fascinating to watch the media-bias deniers of the "mainstream" media dismiss socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders crying Centrist Bias with all the same contempt they show conservatives. On Monday, Sanders fan Keith Spencer at Salon.com obsessed over a Twitter account under the name "HoarseWhisperer," an anonymous account which for some mysterious reason was singled out by disgraced MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on his show The 11th Hour, as he nudged two reporters to denounce Sanders for having "no evidence" of bias.
On Thursday night, it appeared as though MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was tired from the long hours covering the 2020 Democratic presidential debates as he observed #TBT with riffs about how Barack Obama and his rise are “still thrilling to me” even though “[t]he only thing I've ever had against Obama is when he recedes from us” because “I want him back.”
Over the weekend, President Trump attended the G-20 summit in Japan. “Controversy” broke out when a video went viral of the President’s daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump having an awkward-appearing conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and International Monetary Fund Chairwoman Christine Lagarde.
No matter the occasion, whether it be a funeral for a former President, hurricane, sitting Senator, or mass shooting, the liberal media will never stop trying to make news events about President Trump. On Thursday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace went ballistic (along with her panel) over the President “attacking” “American hero” and “Vietnam War veteran, Robert S. Mueller” on the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
Ah, so trying to keep up the fight to try and turn the tide in Georgia is okay, but to MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews on Tuesday, doing so in Florida makes you a “clown” and “Third World” “tin pot dictator” of a country where the losers are killed by hanging.
A few segments before his unhinged rant suggesting prayer should be outlawed concerning tragedies like the California bar shooting and that gun rights don’t come from God, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for the President and acting Attorney Matt Whitaker by screeching out of the blue at friendly panelists. This bizarre tangents came to a boil when he didn’t so much ask a question of The Washington Post’s Robert Costa as he did blurt out that Trump has “got steel [balls] to pulls this off” by firing Sessions and replacing him with Whitaker.
Thursday’s lead Hardball segment offered blistering hot takes concerning the likely death of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi with former Obama administration official Ben Rhodes suggesting that President Trump’s disdain for the press allowed for Khashoggi’s death and host Chris Matthews equating Jared Kushner to the Saudi Crown Prince.
During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel tried to make sense of why President Trump has decided to pick a fight with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; apparently not believing the stated reason of trying to negotiate better trade agreements. When host Joe Scarborough brought up the President’s characterization of Trudeau as meek and weak, panelist Eugene Robinson suggested “He does that when he’s feeling insecure, when Trump is feeling insecure. And so it is youth? Is it the fact that he's a pretty good looking guy?”
For the second time in as many days, frequent CNN and MSNBC guest/former Republican Congressman David Jolly proved his usefulness to the liberal media by not criticizing the relationship between President Trump and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity on conflicts of interest or policy, but by cheaply condemning Hannity for not having graduated college.
To put it simply, cable news thrives off of speculation and little discussion of the actual news. The Tuesday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball opened with a segment perfectly encapsulating this reality with the panel gaming out how a Trump impeachment could go down, what charges he’d face, and whether he’ll be found to have violated the Logan Act in the Russia probe.
Towards the end of Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC moderator Chuck Todd set aside some time for the largely liberal panel to fawn over the so-called March for Our Lives gun control rally which was held in Washington, D.C. the day before. Not only did he allow the panel to heap praise on the gun control pushing kids, but he compared the march to the civil rights movement and the tea party rallies. He also bizarrely pitted their effectiveness against that of porn star Stormy Daniels.
