MSNBC panel flabbergasted by Trump’s ‘perverse’ attack on Christine Ford

Published

on

In the past week, President Donald Trump has largely abstained from attacking Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

But in a pair of tweets this morning, Trump defended Kavanaugh and insinuated that if the accusations were true, Ford and her family would have reported the assault to police when she was 15 years old:

As an MSNBC panel tried to process the president’s reaction in real time, host Stephanie Ruhle couldn’t wrap her head around how a US president could be that insensitive to teenager’s sexual assault. She observed that characterizing the president’s tweets as offensive, but “not going over the line” shows just how much our standards have shifted.

After the first tweet, Ruhle pointed out that “binders full of women”—Mitt Romney’s ill-advised plan to increase gender diversity—was once seen as a sexist gaffe.

“Right up to the line was binders full of women a few years ago,” Ruhle said. “Just get your head around that.”

After the second tweet, an even more flabbergasted Ruhle recalled that once upon a time, President Obama’s tan suit was deemed unpresidential.

“Just for one second. Again. I cannot believe that we’re categorizing the as ‘he’s going up to the line.’ Have things become so perverse that that hasn’t gone over the line? Remember the tan suit that got attacked?”

President Donald Trump Sunday morning admitted he brought up Joe Biden and the former Vice President’s son Hunter Biden while speaking with the President of Ukraine.

“The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, with largely corruption, all of the corruption taking place and largely the fact that we don’t want our people like Vice President Biden and his son creating to the corruption,” Trump said, speaking to reporters from the White House lawn.

‘Left wing hack’: Fox News fans lose it after anchor calls Ukraine allegations ‘a problem’ for Trump

Published

on

Fox News viewers lashed out at the network on Sunday after host Arthel Neville grilled New York Congressman Peter King (R) about President Donald Trump's alleged effort to get Ukraine to help him defeat Joe Biden.

Neville twice asked King about Trump's Ukraine scandal, and both times he evaded the question by saying that Congress does not have a right to know the details of Trump's conversations with foreign leaders.

On her third attempt, Neville got to the point by noting Trump's alleged actions are "a problem."

"We don’t know that it’s true, we hope it’s not true," the Fox News host said of the allegations against Trump. "But if there is a possibility that our president used his office to put pressure on a foreign government -- president-elect -- to dig into his possible, potential political opponent, then that’s a problem."

New York Times battered on MSNBC for pushing smear of Hunter Biden in order to maintain access to Trump

Published

on

An "AM Joy" panel jumped all over the New York Times for pushing a widely debunked smear of Hunter Biden promoted by Donald Trump, saying the newspaper is more interested in maintaining their access to the Oval Office than debunking the lie.

Speaking with host Joy Reid -- who noted that her producers asked for comment from the Times but were rebuffed -- MSNBC regular Maria Teresa Kumar scorched the Times, as well as reporter Ken Vogel, for the uncritical parroting of the president's smear.
