    Trump=Stalin. Well, it does make for a nice change of pace from Trump=Hitler . . . On Joy Reid’s show today, MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance accused President Trump of using KGB tactics in the firing of Andrew McCabe and related moves. Said Nance: “[Trump’s move] comes out of an older playbook, the KGB’s playbook. . . . Donald Trump is literally playing by the Russian playbook on this.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Kasich Brags about Getting Elected at 30, Says “Big Guy” Will Say if He Should Run for Prez

    I try to like people, but John Kasich represents a real challenge. The guy really rubs me the wrong way. Somehow, in the midst of all the Tillerson-Pompeo talk, Kasich turned up on MSNBC this morning. Speaking of the special election in Pennsylvania today, Kasich bragged about having been elected to Congress at age 30. That, according to Kasich, makes 33-year old Dem candidate Conor Lamb “a little old.” Kasich made his 2020 strategy pretty clear, saying that the emergence of third parties “is more realistic than it’s ever been.” When host Stephanie Ruhle asked him flat out if he...

    Last week, it was announced that President Trump had accepted an invitation from North Korea's Kim Jong-un to meet in the near future. Reasonable people are hoping for a positive outcome, while unreasonable people, blinded by their hatred for the president, have gone off the deep end. That brings us to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. This is not the first time in history that a president has chosen to break with tradition by meeting with a cruel and vile despot of an isolated country. Indeed, that action was taken in the prior administration, when President Obama visited Kim Jong Fidel...
  • Abolishing ICE To Become 2020 Campaign Issue For Democrats

    03/10/2018 5:59:01 AM PST · by Helicondelta · 118 replies ^ | 03/09/2018
    Once a fringe idea on the far-left, abolishing the nation’s immigration enforcement agency now looks likely to become a campaign issue in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary. Former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon came out for abolishing the agency in January. “ICE operates as an unaccountable deportation force,” Fallon argued. “Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form.” “Any serious defender of undocumented people in this country would look at ICE and know that it is a cancer that needs to be excised from the U.S. Pretending that the most diseased levers of...
  • Bob Woodward: Some Reporters Are Becoming ‘Emotionally Unhinged’ Covering Trump

    Veteran journalist Bob Woodward criticized reporters on the right and left alike who were becoming too emotionally invested in their coverage of Donald Trump, calling them "unhinged." "You’ve described the Trump presidency as being a "test" for the news media. Do you think the media is failing the test?" asked Newsweek. The former Washington Post reporter—now an associate editor—responded journalists could always do better, including himself, but that he thought the media had not "failed" to date. "But we have a lot of work to do," he continued. "A number of reporters have at times become emotionally unhinged about it...

    Liberal Senator and potential 2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris issued a stark warning to Attorney General Jeff Sessions Thursday; telling the Senior Trump aide that “California represents the future” of the United States, not the past. Harris was speaking with MSNBC News’ Chris Hayes when she scolded Sessions for his remarks in Sacramento Wednesday night; telling a roomful of law enforcement officers that California must obey “federal statutes” regarding immigration guidelines. “This Administration and Jeff Sessions in particular have clearly put a target on the back of California and California’s going to fight,” Harris told Hayes. “And, I think that...

    ...It is a weird thing to watch the media uncritically receive and regurgitate dozens of leaks — all of them out of context, some of them downright false — from Rep. Adam Schiff and his team and then write up that the other side is leaking. This is particularly bizarre given the general lack of leaks coming from House Permanent Select Committee Republicans. At the very least it’s worth noting that there were no leaks from Intelligence Committee Republicans about their 4-page memo alleging FISA abuses, even as the agencies and Democrats on the committee put out anticipatory leaks to...

    Evan Siegfried has probably assured himself of a few more appearances on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show. Siegfried is the sort of Republican that Reid reveres: the kind willing to take nasty shots at President Trump. On today’s show, Siegfried said that Trump wouldn’t have imposed the tariffs on steel and aluminum: “if the President had been doing things with Forbes magazine other than getting spanked, and he had actually read it, he would have known it’s bad for the economy.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Former CIA chief John Brennan on Friday predicted "rough waters ahead," particularly on international issues, because President Trump is "unstable, inept, inexperienced, and also unethical." In an interview with MSNBC's "Deadline: White House," Brennan told host Nicole Wallace that the president was "ill prepared" to take on the duties of commander-in-chief, particularly growing military aggression from Russia and North Korea. "It is no secret to anybody that Donald Trump was very ill prepared and unexperienced in terms of dealing with matters that a head of state needs to deal with, head of government, and I think this is now coming...

    Another guest said Trump should be removed from office "in handcuffs" MSNBC guest and marketing expert Donny Deutsch said Monday that President Donald Trump will win reelection "in a landslide" if he is not removed from office before 2020. Deutsch joined the panel on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" to discuss the investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Host Nicolle Wallace and the panel discussed the Russia investigation and how the Trump administration is attempting an "ongoing attack" on the FBI. Deutsch then lambasted the "absurdity" and "obscenity" of the way the Trump administration has functioned, but Sirius...

    Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace has proven time and again to be one of MSNBC’s most outspoken Trump critics. But she outdid herself on Monday when she spent nearly the full hour mocking the President and trash talking Republicans, taking only the occasional break to report the news. The bloodbath began when Wallace mentioned the President’s proclivity for aggressive weekend Tweets. She characterized Trump’s behavior as “this releasing of pressure,” wherein he “rages away at Twitter in his jammies.” Continuing with her imaginative illustration, she inquired:

    MSNBC guest and Sirius XM radio host Mark Thompson said on Monday that he believes criticizing the FBI and law enforcement is a “high crime and misdemeanor.” During a discussion about the Nunes memo and the subsequent Democratic response on MSNBC, Thompson said he had “never seen anything” like the criticisms of the FBI and law enforcement from Republicans. “And the other thing, just to draw together, this whole thing with the NRA. The NRA and Trump are attacking local law enforcement. The White House is attacking the FBI,” Thompson said. “We’ve never seen anything like this coming from Republicans.”...
  • MSNBC Host: Handgun Bullets Are Ineffective In Stopping School Shooters Because They're Too Slow

    Talk about a facepalm moment. Is it the media’s stupidity or stacking sandbags because they know this National Rifle Association initiative could gain traction? You decide. The NRA wants more armed guards in schools. Teachers should be allowed to carry as well. After the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, the school board voted to approve this proposal. This is not an alien concept. A lot of schools have resource officers; Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the site of the most recent school shooting on February 14, had such officers. They failed to engage the shooter, Nikolas Cruz. Scores of teachers in...

    <p>David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, told Morning Joe on Monday that he thinks Gov. Rick Scott should be “held accountable” for the failure of three sheriff’s deputies to confront the gunman. Law enforcement sources confirmed to news outlets that three deputies from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office remained outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High as the shooter opened fire, eventually killing 17 people. Hogg, appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, said the news is “raising concern” in his community, before accusing elected officials of attempting the blame the shooting on “bureaucracy.” “They’re in charge of them,” Hogg said of those elected officials. “This is their fault.” “They should have been regulating them,” he continued. “I’m not going to allow them to pressure these people because at the end of the day it’s their fault. These elected officials are the boss of these sheriff personnel and just like the president is the boss of the FBI, Governor Rick Scott is essentially the boss of Scott Israel, the sheriff, and as such he should be held accountable. “He can’t just blame this on the bureaucracy and expect to get re-elected.” Hogg went on to praise high school football coach Aaron Feis, who died shielding students from the gunman, “unlike those cowardly Broward County Sheriff officials.” “Sadly, these are a few individuals that did not conduct their job correctly, but I don’t think it’s right that Governor Rick Scott is trying to blame this on the bureaucracy in an effort to get reelected.”</p>

    Is fame giving delusions of grandeur to David Hogg, the Parkland student who’s become a media celebrity as an advocate of more gun control? During a long interview with Joy Reid on her MSNBC show today, Hogg at one point looked directly into the camera and said that in contrast with several other companies that had offered discounts to NRA members: “FedEx still has not dropped their deal with the NRA. The CEO is one of the biggest donors to the NRA. And we have to take care of them. And as a result, if they aren’t going to, we’re...

    On Friday, President Trump addressed the largest crowd of conservative activists in the history of CPAC. It was another memorable Trump speech, listing his many accomplishments and encouraging the crowd to support Republican candidates in the mid-term elections. For 80 minutes, the President discussed an array of issues such as tax cuts, judicial appointments, immigration and the strong economy. To the delight of the crowd, Trump claimed that “we have got seven years to go folks.” Of course, this did not thrill the President’s many enemies in the national news media. MSNBC’s Ali Veshi said the President’s speech was similar...

    MSNBC host Ali Velshi took grave offense at President Donald Trump taking questions from reporters from the Washington Examiner and One America News Network on Friday. Velshi considered it vital that Trump face questions about the report that former campaign aide Rick Gates would plead guilty in Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election. The news on Gates broke minutes before Trump’s joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, and Trump ended up taking questions about Syria and Jared Kushner’s security clearance. Velshi expressed outrage that the people who asked those questions were Gabby Morrongiello...

    MSNBC anchors are claiming that teachers armed with handguns would be unable to stop a school shooter because rifles shoot “three times faster.” Anchor Lawrence O’Donnell said on his show Thursday night that “a bullet fired from an AR-15 travels 3x faster than one from a handgun…and yet the president and the NRA think giving teachers guns will stop a school shooter.” MSNBC ✔ @MSNBC Lawrence: A bullet fired from an AR-15 travels 3x faster than one from a handgun.

    Any harebrained liberal who still believes President Donald Trump might one day wind up in prison for colluding with Russians to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election should promptly seek an appointment with a therapist. And not just because the evidence has disproved this narrative, but because someone at MSNBC — the same MSNBC where a contributor recently called for a “revolution” against Trump — now admits that the likelihood of Trump being indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller is “next to zero.” “He is not going to indict anybody if he can’t bring that indictment home and...
