MSNBC/NBC spent Sunday showing footage from a western themed party Saturday at Mar-a-Lago hosted by the Trumpettes. Some viewers couldn’t help notice that it was reminiscent of propaganda films done in North Korea.
One comedian and radio host noted that the MSNBC anchor was parroting President Donald Trump’s language about the resort he calls the “winter White House.”
No, no, NO, MSNBC anchor! "Mar-a-Lago, which is sometimes called the Winter White House…" Absolutely not. TRUMP calls it that. Nobody else should. It's in no way the people's house; it's a privately owned, for-profit resort that puts $ in Trump's pocket. STOP.

Others noticed the same thing, asking other MSNBC hosts to refrain from the lack of objectivity.
@TheRevAl @PoliticsNation Two previous msnbc hosts used trump’s branding phrase and called Mar-A-Lago the winter white house. I hope you won’t. The media should not be marketing trump’s for profit business by using trump’s branding. TY

@annaschecter, you referred to Mar-a-Lago as the “Winter Whitehouse” on MSNBC. Do NOT call it that. It is not now nor will it ever be the Winter Whitehouse. That was incredibly irresponsible of you.

In MSNBC's Weekend Programming is Problematic news: NBC News Senior Producer Anna Schecter just did a puff piece on Mar-a-lago and seriously called it "the winter White House" as if that's a completely acceptable moniker. Then she followed it with clips of Mar-a-lago 1/2

Just what your viewers needed @msnbc– a puff piece normalizing Mar-A-Lago, its disgusting members & its vile owner. Just shoot me.

MSNBC has lost it's mind! My god! They are showing a Mar-A-Lago as a Winter White House with wealthy women putting this show of overindulgence with Trump Supporters paying to gush bull shit and prove their love for the Orange One!
A private club is not a winter White House!

What is wrong with you @MSNBC? The"Winter White House" is the actual White House, located in Washington, DC. Only trump likes to speciously call his private golf club that. There is only one White House and it belongs to We The People. Mar A Lago is an obsene emolument!

1. I don’t care how many people you find —with or without accented English — to extol the virtues of the wall; and
2. The “Winter White House” is just the White House — NOT Mar-A-Lago.

God that video of the weird white people at Mar-a-Lago on @msnbc looks like hell. It would be awful to be there. So weird.

One person called it outright propaganda.
MSNBC just did a tour of Mar-A-Lago, do you think MSNBC viewers care where Trump makes American tax payers pay $1 million to visit each time? If I wanted to see Trump propaganda, I would just cut to the chase & watch Fox news! pic.twitter.com/PMfC07diLc

Another person noticed that NBC News Senior Producer Anna Schecter bragged about the “diversity” of the predominantly white crowd. It’s unclear if she meant diversity in age, region or economic status.
Um the tart on NBC reporting on the Mar a Lago party last night was just on with Ayman on MSNBC…and I quote her "you can see the diversity of the people who gathered to support President trump." Um seriously are you kidding me??? Really @NBCNews @MSNBC @AymanM #Sundaymoron

I just happened to pass my TV when @msnbc was airing a report on Mar-A-Lago using a party as part of the story. All old white people who’ve lost their minds—in cowboy costumes. Why don’t they just put on a hood already?

Richard, check out gushing @MSNBC segment on Mar-a-Lago today. The place is "stunning"! Reporter had the glorious privilege of talking to…Eric Trump! Guests saw a private Presidential broadcast on N.Korea!
Waited for them to turn to a panel discussion on corruption, but nope.

Watch the NBC News “exclusive” below:
Trump has been ‘insulated’ by his wealth to never have to learn from his mistakes: biographer
President Donald Trump's inherited wealth has meant he's never had to learn from his mistakes, Trump biographer Tim O'Brien told MSNBC's Brian Williams on Thursday.
"Bloomberg Opinion writer and our next guest Tim O’Brien writes today, 'Yes, of course, you need a certain kind of appalling narcissism to be comfy promoting yourself as heaven-sent in a televised press briefing and as a deity on Twitter. It’s doubly unhinged when you’re doing this as president,'" Williams said. "He goes on 'The Trump of the past few weeks is the same disordered figure of the past several decades with, I suspect, a big dollop of something new blended in: unbridled and unmanageable panic.'"
‘Both Putin and Xi will be voting Trump in 2020’: NYT columnist says Russia and China want ‘turmoil and chaos’
The Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China are both rooting for President Donald Trump to win re-election in 2020, a New York Times columnist argued on MSNBC on Thursday.
Thomas Friedman was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on "The Last Word."
"What do we know about how the leaders of other countries see Donald Trump at this stage in their dealings with him?" O'Donnell asked. "Especially this weekend, when it comes at the end of a week in which they’ve heard him call himself the King of Israel, they have heard him say he is The Chosen One. They have heard all the crazy things that everyone here has heard the president say."
Trump is ‘not a stable genius’: GOP strategist says the president ‘doesn’t remember who and where he is’
President Donald Trump's mental fitness is lacking, a top Republican strategist explained on "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.
Rick Wilson, the author of the 2018 bestselling book Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever, blasted the commander-in-chief.
"Rick Wilson, your assessment of where the president stands as he heads off to the G7 summit?" O'Donnell asked.
"I think Donald Trump has had a week in which he is proving that this isn’t 87-dimensional chess game, this isn't some masterful strategy of communications or persuasion," Wilson replied. "This is an old man who is sick and who has problems and who has mental disconnects and who has aphasias and who has moments where he doesn’t remember who and where he is."
