Latest from Kristine Marsh

CNN spent another segment on Monday’s New Day, mocking Trump’s pick of State Department spokesman Heather Nauert, to replace the departing U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley. Nauert used to be an anchor for Fox and Friends before joining the Trump administration in 2017 and was an ABC News correspondent before that.



CBS This Morning ran a strange segment Monday morning about office party etiquette this holiday season with New York Times contributing writer Jennifer Weiner -- who awkwardly dragged Justice Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford into it. As the left tends to do, Weiner made the concept of a Christmas party political, worrying that it just another way women would be sexually harassed for what they wear.

 


Friday at the Hot Topics table, the hosts of The View argued with Utah Republican, Rep. Mia Love, pressuring her to call President Trump a racist, after he blamed her critical stance towards him as the reason why she lost to her Democrat challenger in the midterm elections. Love didn’t fold under the pressure from the liberal hosts, instead calling out Democrats for targeting her because she is a black, female Republican.



Thursday, the media continued bringing President Trump into their live coverage of former President George H.W. Bush’s funeral proceedings. Instead of comparing their presidencies, ABC took it a step further late Thursday, with two of its journalists crudely mocking how President Trump’s own funeral would be different.



Dan Rather, the longtime CBS anchor keeps showing he has no self-awareness, whatsoever. The veteran, disgraced journalist took to Twitter during George H.W. Bush’s funeral Wednesday to offer his thoughts, dripping with condescension for our current president, and completely obtuse in light of his own behavior towards both Bushes when they were in office.



As is routine for modern presidents to do, even when traveling short distances, President Trump used a motorcade to leave the White House, to greet President George W. Bush and Laura Bush Tuesday evening as the funeral proceedings for George H.W. Bush began. The Washington Post decided this was newsworthy enough to write a snarky headline and article about.



Tuesday, a new report revealed that most people who reside in the U.S. illegally or on green cards are receiving government benefits. The study, utilizing the latest Census Bureau data from 2014, found that 63% of non-citizen households in America reported being on welfare. While the media has loudly called the notion that illegal immigrants receive government benefits a “myth,” the facts aren’t on their side.



On Monday’s The View, the co-hosts talked opened the show by remembering our 41st president, George H.W. Bush who passed away Friday night. While each host used their voice to praise the former president, Joy Behar took it as an opportunity to slam President Trump, which ended the segment abruptly as Meghan McCain took her to task for doing so.



Friday the Hot Topics table got heated on The View, as Republican co-host Meghan McCain found a partner in Abby Huntsman in combating their liberal co-hosts’ arguments on Trump's dealings with Russia.



Apparently “journalism” to The Washington Post now amounts to diagnosing mental illnesses of voting populations they don’t like by looking at their google searches. The paper published an article November 29 that is so mockable it’s surprising it's not satire, with the headline reading, “How Donald Trump appeals to men secretly insecure about their manhood.”



Former Obama administration official and host Jim Sciutto fretted we could all face a slow torturous death because the Trump administration’s dismissal of a recent apocalyptic climate change report. Sciutto shared his worries with his guest, a geology professor on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom.



The View hosts oddly used a conservative talking point as the starting point for a conversation at the hot topics table, on Wednesday’s show. The co-hosts were split at the table over the notion that President Obama also used tear gas at the border, with the liberal hosts throwing a fit over being called out for their hypocrisy.



On Good Morning America Wednesday, ABC’s Deborah Roberts grilled First Daughter Ivanka Trump, in an exclusive interview, on everything from her recent email scandal to President Trump’s “tone.” While GMA just did a series of interviews with former First Lady Michelle Obama that were warm, friendly and non-confrontational, the tone and questions asked in this interview with Ivanka couldn’t have been more different.



All three networks have failed to report on an alleged attempted hate crime against two men leaving a Jewish synagogue last Friday in Los Angeles. While another anti-semitic hate crime in Pittsburgh October 27 received mass coverage, the alleged suspect’s identity in this recent attack may be one reason why it hasn’t received any coverage on the major networks thus far.



Cable news and the networks have been hard at work trying to demonize Mississippi’s GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith as a callous racist who wants to bring back the KKK’s reign of terror in the South from decades past. After liberal activists added to the drama by putting nooses on the state legislature lawn, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and her liberal guests tried to blame Hyde-Smith for the stunt, bashing her as “sick” “scary” and “disgraceful” while even urging Mississippi voters in the runoff election, to vote for her Democrat opponent, Mike Espy who is embattled in his own controversy.



Monday at the Hot Topics table, Senator Bernie Sanders joined the hosts of The View for an interview that was supposed to be about his book, but turned out instead to be about criticizing President Trump.



Joe Scarborough’s past came back to bite him this week, as he was called out for hypocrisy in having Al Sharpton on his show to talk about racism. As a former GOP Congressman, the MSNBC host had quite the different take on Sharpton than he did while serving in Congress.



Tuesday on The View, the liberal hosts were thrilled by the news that Ivanka Trump used her own personal email address to correspond about White House business. Tying it to Hillary Clinton’s private email server debacle, Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar attacked their conservative co-hosts for pointing out it wasn’t the same as Clinton’s email problem.



The panel on CNN’s New Day Tuesday morning used the Ivanka Trump email story to fawn over Hillary Clinton, admitting regret over giving it “too much” attention during the 2016 election cycle. The journalists revealed their bias in calling it a “bogus” story to begin with, complaining that they probably helped seal her defeat by giving it attention.



All three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) ignored California Democrat Congressman and possible 2020 presidential contender Eric Swalwell’s incendiary tweets this past weekend calling for the federal government to “nuke” American citizens who objected to the federal government confiscating their firearms.
