    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow urged television networks not to air White House updates on the coronavirus outbreak, claiming “misinformation” from President Trump will “cost lives.” “I know we ought to be getting used to this kind of thing by now, but I’m not,” Maddow began Friday night. “President Trump today, again, just flat-out wrong in public about this malaria drug that has gotten stuck in his mind, quite some distance from the facts.” The liberal primetime host was referring to Trump’s claim Friday that the drug they’re hoping to use against the coronavirus is “effective,” but Dr. Anthony Fauci of...
  • Jon Meacham: I'm Not Partisan, But Your Lives Aren't Safe With Trump!

    Surely Jon Meacham knows that when people resort to "some of my best friends are" whatever, they are losing the argument. Yet on today's Morning Joe employed just such a claim to defend himself against accusations of anti-conservative bias. Meacham accused President Trump of causing the "literal" death of constitutional order. He then suggested that if people listened to a Trump press conference, they would conclude that "the lives of your family" would not be safe "in this man’s hands." Meacham totally gave away the game when he said: "Look, I live in Tennessee . . . When I say...

    MSNBC Analyst Glenn Kirschner suggested Tuesday that he would attempt to prosecute President Donald Trump for negligent homicide over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Kirschner laid out his explanation in a series of tweets, first claiming that the president “may have criminal exposure for some level of negligent homicide or voluntary/involuntary manslaughter for the way he’s mishandled the Coronavirus crisis.” He went on to tout his own career as a prosecutor, saying that he had always been “on the lookout for novel ways to apply homicide … liability in an attempt to appropriately and ethically hold accountable those who...

    The 'Hardball' host made the shock announcement on Monday night, after more than 20 years at the network. MSNBC host Chris Matthews announced his retirement from the network on Monday night after more than 20 years at the left-leaning cable channel. He will be replaced at 7 p.m. by a rotating group of hosts. While Matthews was expected to retire in the near future, the sudden announcement comes amid of a series of recent flaps and controversies. Last Monday, Matthews apologized to Bernie Sanders for comparing his rise in the 2020 campaign to the German invasion of France. "Let me...

    "When I ask people if they’re voting for Donald Trump, I hear about their 401(k)s a lot," the host said Tuesday. "But there are those out that who don't have a 401(k). And there are those out there, this economy is not really working for them. They might have a job, but it's not a job that pays their bills. They can get a car, but it's a loan that will last them 30 years."

    "But the kind of the 'stop Bernie' cynicism that I heard from a number of people, I watch MSNBC constantly, so I heard that from a number of commentators. And so, it made me angry enough, I said, 'OK, Bernie's got my vote.'" Melber thanked the woman for her answer before joking that he knew she was "complex."

  • MSNBC's Maddow presses DNC chair Tom Perez over low Dem turnout in Iowa: 'They didn't turn out in droves!'

    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow grilled Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez over the low turnout at Monday's Iowa caucuses, pointing out how Democrats "didn't turn out in droves" like in previous election cycles. Whiles technical errors with the voting system have plagued the Democrat Party over the past several days, some on the left are sounding the alarms after early results from the Iowa caucuses draw a parallel to the 2016 turnout, which was roughly 170,000 voters. In 2008, there were nearly 240,000 voters.
  • Trump Had America’s Top TV News Anchors Over for Lunch—and Ate Them Alive

    Donald Trump served various television news personalities a lunch described by one White House guest as soup and filet of sole Tuesday—but soon the assembled anchorpeople were eating out of his hand. Much to the disappointment of folks at CNN, nobody at the long table—who included NBC’s Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s David Muir and George Stephanopoulos, and CBS’s Norah O’Donnell and Margaret Brennan—bothered to ask why the president had gone out of his way to exclude the cable network run by Trump’s former friend Jeff Zucker. “MSDNC isn’t here as well,” Trump quipped—to polite chuckles but zero protests...

    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace went on a rant on Monday night as the Iowa caucuses were underway, decrying that President Trump is “the enemy.” Responding to a panelist who had a fiery on-air debate with a Sanders surrogate over former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s rise in the primaries, Wallace stressed that Democrats should dwell on “the system” that allowed the billionaire businessman to run a formidable campaign. “The enemy is the guy in the Oval Office who thinks there were good people on both sides in Charlottesville,” Wallace said. “The enemy is the guy in the Oval Office...

    Will Mika Brzezinski be in touch with Nancy Pelosi today to recommend the addition of a new article of impeachment—the high crime of blackmail? The question arises because on today's Morning Joe, Mika strongly suggested that President Trump is blackmailing Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio. She first wondered out loud what Trump "has on" Graham. She later suggested that the President has dug up "dirt" on Graham and Rubio, and has them "under his thumb," coercing them into saying positive things about him.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said his colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) would end up regretting investigating 2020 presidential hopeful former Vice President Joe Biden. Blumenthal said, “I really regret that he has launched on this course. I think he’ll regret it too, because not only is it completely spurious, he knows it’s been debunked, it’s also, in fact, relying on this, insane as you have correctly called it, conspiracy theory involving Ukraine. It endangers our national security. This Ukrainian theory is one of the central tenets and tropes of Russian propaganda and disinformation

    Newly-entered 2020 candidate Deval Patrick boasted that the Democrats are the "party of the woke." Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday after officially launching his presidential campaign, the former Massachusetts governor was asked about the "vulnerability" of his involvement in Bain Capital, the investment firm that previously dogged Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign. "You’re not running in a Republican primary, you are running in a Democratic primary," MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace told Patrick. "Your party has moved to the left." "First of all, I love that the party has moved to the left. I love that we are the party of the...

    An MSNBC analyst suggested Tuesday that President Trump is a Russian agent who had been compromised “as early as 1977” as a result of his first marriage to Ivana Trump. While promoting his new book on “Morning Joe,” retired U.S. naval intelligence operator Malcolm Nance started by pointing out he’s “not a journalist,” but said that as a former member of intelligence community, he could “predict” things that his MSNBC colleagues could not, such as Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. But, when asked what happened in the “prologue” of Trump’s political rise, Nance responded by claiming that the then-businessman...

    Joe Scarborough turns his lonely eyes... to Fox News?? Looks that way. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough dreamed of a scenario in which Fox News would turn against President Trump, thus bringing down his presidency. Scarborough analogized it to a "Cronkite moment." That was the time in 1968 when CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite essentially declared the Vietnam War unwinnable. LBJ was reported to have said at the time, “if I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost Middle America.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    FULL TITLE: MSNBC's Chuck Todd dismisses Durham's criminal probe into DOJ as 'largely' based on Trump's 'conspiracy theories' Trump predicts expanded Durham probe will uncover 'a lot of bad things' MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd opened his show Friday by dismissing the latest developments in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal probe into the origins of the Russia investigation as something that is "largely" based on President Trump's "personal grievances and conspiracy theories."

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” closed out Wednesday’s show with a segment on author Joel Stein’s new book, “In Defense Of Elitism,” culminating in him calling hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough “the worst” for being so-called “boat elite.” Stein kicked off the segment describing how he visited the “town in America with the highest percentage of Trump voters, and I thought I would teach them a lot and they would teach me a little.” He also sought to answer a question from Mike Barnicle on why those people “feel such resentment toward people like us and where we like and how...

    It is a common refrain on MSNBC in the age of Trump that nobody is above law and to raise questions about investigations into high ranking officials is damaging to our institutions, unless of course that investigations is looking into alleged misconduct during the Obama years, then it is the investigation that is the threat to institutions. Such, was the argument that Andrea Mitchell made on her Monday show alongside former Obama officials Wendy Sherman and Ned Price in a segment that also torched plenty of strawmen in an attempt to described John Durham's investigation into the origins of the...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was fed up Friday morning over the Democratic presidential candidates spending too much time at Thursday night’s debate “quibbling” over minor health care policy differences. The “Morning Joe” host said he was “astounded” to see the candidates, for a large portion of the first hour, “pounding each other on technocratic niceties” related to their health care plans, while ignoring the big picture. […] Scarborough concluded by saying that pitching “Medicare-for-All’ to the American people is a “waste of time” because it will never pass in Congress after the election. “Barack Obama basically had to use every...
