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:
‘This is a lie’: Lisa Page pummels Trump for telling blatant falsehoods about her at crazed rally
Former FBI attorney Lisa Page on Wednesday called out President Donald Trump for once again lying about her at one of his political rallies.
On Tuesday night, Trump told supporters in Pennsylvania that Page supposedly had to file a restraining order against former FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she'd had a relationship during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump hedged his claim by telling his supporters, "That's what I heard, I don't know if it's true."
Page, however, took to Twitter to shred the president for repeating a blatant falsehood.
"This is a lie," she wrote. "Nothing like this ever happened. I wish we had a president who knew how to act like one."
Trump busted for lying about NATO in days-late response to world leaders mocking him
President Donald Trump responded to a week-old tweet from a Fox Business personality about Canada's prime minister and other world leaders mocking him, and spouted misleading claims about NATO allies.
The president falsely claimed in his response to Charles Payne that Justin Trudeau, along with French president Emmanuel Macron and British prime minister Boris Johnson, were actually angry and not laughing about his bizarre news conference at the NATO summit.
"They were just upset that I demanded they pay their fair share for NATO," Trump claimed, four days after Payne's tweet. "Their countries are delinquent. I raised $530 Billion more from NATO countries! Thank you Charles."
Trump forced to pay up after his charity is exposed as a sham
Donald Trump on Tuesday paid $2 million in damages as part of a settlement over use of his former charity to further his political and business interests -- the latest item on the US president's list of legal woes.
Trump had been accused of using foundation funds to settle lawsuits, promote his Trump-branded hotels, and for personal spending, including the purchase of a portrait of himself to display at one of his golf clubs.
The $2 million was paid equally to eight different charities, including the Children's Aid Society, the United Negro College Fund and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, according to a statement from New York Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat.
