  • Rachel Maddow Uses Non-Existent ‘House Popular Vote’ To Try To Prove There Really Was A Blue Wave

    The Daily Caller ^ | November 16, 2018 | Virginia Kruta
    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow referenced the “House popular vote” in an effort to explain how the Nov. 6th midterm elections really did represent the “blue wave” many Democrats had been hoping to create. “As of this morning, the Democratic lead in the US House popular vote is up to 7.3%, from 7.2% yesterday. For comparison purposes, note that in 2010 – which was widely seen as a GOP ‘wave’ cycle – Republicans won the US House popular vote by 6.6%,” Maddow tweeted. (TWEET-AT-LINK)What Maddow was saying was that overall, more nationwide votes were cast for Democrats in House seats than for...
  • 'Pathetic...Caged Animal': Morning Joe Reduced to Sorry Mess of Trump Trolling

    "It's getting to the point, where I'm no fun anymore." -- Suite: Judy Blue Eyes Morning Joe might consider adopting the Crosby, Stills & Nash hit as its theme song. Because a show that in the not-that-distant past was at times entertaining and even insightful has been reduced to nothing but an utterly predictable, and hence boring, Trump-trolling mess. On Morning Joe, every day is Groundhog Day. But instead of Cher belting out "I Got You Babe," it's the panel singing the same—old—song, which might be entitled "We Hate Trump." Take this morning—which could have been any morning—in which the...

    Appearing on MSNBC Thursday morning to defend Democrat Stacey Abrams’ refusal to concede the race for governor in Georgia and hurl accusations of voter suppression against Republican Brian Kemp, Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo touted support from disgraced former CBS News anchor Dan Rather and MSNBC’s own Joe Scarborough. . . "GROH-WARGO: And that is a very clear effort really exposing these issues. Because here’s the deal, whatever happens with our campaign, we’ve got to fix the system here in Georgia."

    Joe Scarborough: Nancy Pelosi fanboy. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough scolded Democrats seeking to prevent Pelosi from becoming Speaker. Joe repeatedly praised Pelosi as highly "competent," and analogized her to Alex Cora, manager of the World Series-winning Red Sox. Scarborough said that dumping Pelosi: "would really be like the Red Sox asking if they were going to keep Alex Cora or not . . . Why get rid of your Alex Cora after a championship season?"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    As you'll see in the mashup, Morning Joe taunted President Trump today with a barrage of insults, casting the election results as a huge loss for the President, and depicting him as "freaked-out, weak, battered, confused." In the unkindest cut, Joe Scarborough sneeringly claimed: "He thinks he's going to stop his children, if they've done something wrong, from going to jail? They'll just be in state jail [instead of federal jail.]"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Seems like there is a lesson to be learned in here somewhere. – So, lessee here…the pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona, Doug Ducey, easily won his race by more than 150,000 votes. Meanwhile, the Trump-avoiding GOP senatorial candidate, Martha McSally, who basically campaigned as the second coming of despicable RINO Jeff Flake, lost her race by about 48,000 votes at the latest count. Hmmmm. How do we explain that? Think maybe there’s a cause and effect kind of thing going on there? Nah, must be something else, because your fake news...

    "We should also point out that Brenda Snipes in Broward County is a Republican appointed by former governor, then-Governor Jeb Bush," Mitchell said in a clip flagged by Mediaite. "So, she was put in by a Republican governor after the mess that we all remember from 2000. And she’s hardly a Democratic official, or someone doing the bidding of the Democratic candidates there."

    A majority of Democrats — 61 percent — describe Republicans as “racist, “bigoted,” and “sexist,” according to a Monday-published poll commissioned by Axios. Thirty-one percent of Republicans describe Democrats the same way. The online poll surveyed 3,215 U.S. adults, and has a margin of error of three percentage points. Fifty-four percent of Democrats view Republicans as “ignorant,” with 49 percent of Republicans similarly viewing Democrats. Fifty percent of Republicans cast Democrats as “evil,” with 44 percent of Democrats doing the same with Republicans.

    Some in the news media are dismissing President Trump's claim of fraud in Florida's election, even after two judges have found impropriety with the process in specific parts of the state. CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza on Monday called claims of corruption and “fraud” by Trump and Republicans “baseless” and said that they “tell us about how [Trump] will approach his own re-election race in 2020.” His colleague John Avlon on Monday morning called on Florida to “count the votes. Don’t demonize the process.” Trump returned Sunday from a weekend trip to Europe, but his mind was at least in...

    President Obama is sidestepping the Senate to directly fill the No. 2 position at the Justice Department and appoint four U.S. ambassadors whose nominations had been stalled or blocked by lawmakers for months.

Senators had blocked or refused to consider the confirmations of the nominees for various reasons, including questions about their qualifications. ...

    Upset over President Trump firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is organizing mass marches. The protests are slated for today at 5 PM. “It’s happening,” she wrote online. “This is a ‘break the glass in case of emergency’ plan to protect the Mueller investigation.” “We knew this would happen at some point,” she added. “The day has arrived.” Maddow posted the messages to her Twitter account, which has 9.54 million followers. The marches are being sponsored by Indivisible.org, a liberal activist group made up of former congressional staffers. The group is demanding Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker disclaim...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/07/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    The most hilarious coverage of the midterms was MSNBC’s handling of  Andrew Gillum’s losing campaign for Florida’s governorship. The 90% of the media that hates Trump and his supporters really, really wanted Andrew Gillum to win: he’s a radical leftist who is charismatic, articulate, and very left wing. Oh, and he is black, which means he has the potential to drive black turnout to Obama-like levels. MSNBC reported a Gillum victory before voting even started.  Erik Pederson and David Robb of Deadline.com noticed a bit of wishful thinking at the Peacock Network’s cable propaganda outlet, MSNBC Monday night: MSNBC...

    MSNBC anchor Brian Williams apologized on behalf of his network after it broadcast a vulgarity from Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke. "I'm so f—-ing proud of you guys," O'Rourke said during his concession speech on Tuesday night after losing his election to Ted Cruz. The curse word was not censored on MSNBC. Sorry for the F-bomb," Williams said after the remark. "We have no control of what's in the concession speeches." Fox News and CNN were not broadcasting O'Rourke's concession speech.

    Such a magnanimous guy, that Joe Scarborough. He doesn't usually judge his friends, no matter how they vote. But not this year. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said that not judging friends is "a little harder to do in 2018." A Scarborough tweet that was displayed made clear what Joe had in mind: anyone voting for "Trump" [i.e., for Republicans] is voting for "lies," and "racism."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Under normal circumstances, Republicans would be poised to lose Tuesday’s midterm elections by a landslide. History says dozens of seats in the House of Representatives flip in the first midterm of a new presidential administration. But history is a guide, not a rule. And current the circumstances of the country are anything but normal. I’m not talking about President Donald Trump and his Twitter account, though that certainly is outside the usual. I’m talking about what it is the opposition party is offering and the idea that some people, perhaps enough to flip the House, might take it considering...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele called President Donald Trump’s proposal to end birthright citizenship via executive order engaging “in stupid at a level that we have never seen before.” Steele said, “It is better from Trump’s perspective to have a base that is angry and mad at someone other than him. It is sort of the 1950s racism that has been reintroduced into the body politic, and he is thriving on that. So, you know, a great jobs number, and wages going up, and tax cuts, and Supreme Court appointment s appointments,...

    Who knew that Hispanics could be Republicans? Well, everyone, except for a few reporters at MSNBC. With less than a week before the 2018 elections, the news organization sent a crew down to the Texas 7th congressional district, which Democrats think they can flip this year. The district has a high Latino population, but as Mariana Atencio found out, that doesn’t mean a guaranteed Democratic win. In fact, MSNBC found Hispanic voters who support Republicans and legal immigration. It’s quite simple: if you want to come here, you have to go through the proper channels. It’s not racist. It’s not...
