MSNBC panel ridicules Fox News for their sad attempts to spin Trump’s disastrous July 4th celebration

Published

A panel on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” found the glowing reviews by Fox News’ hosts of Donald Trump’s disastrous speech on July Fourth to be a source of amusement on Sunday morning — with one guest noting even the Russians panned the president.

Host Joy Reid kicked off the proceedings by running clips of Fox personalities calling Trump’s rain-soaked patriotic extravaganza “beautiful” and “incredible” while also complaining that “many of his critics said he’s going to make it all about him.”

Following a clip of Fox’s Jeanine Pirro ranting about reactions to Trump’s speech — which contained some widely-mocked historical inaccuracies about airports during the Revolutionary War — host Reid smirked and addressed her guests.

“That was the reaction Donald Trump wanted for the event he dreamed of in the last two years,” she explained. “The only major network to cover the network wall-to-wall dedicating a two-hour block for his campaign event and expose the anti-American core of the modern left.”

“He even got mocked by the Russians,” Reid continued while laughing. “Even the Russians — they mocked him. They said it was low energy, using his own insults. How does his staff keep that away from him so he doesn’t find out?”

Washington Post conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin chimed in to snark, “It’s hard when the home office gets upset with you,” at which point the entire panel started laughing once again.

DOJ employees urged to revolt against Bill Barr for throwing IG report ‘in the trash’ to defend Trump

Published

On MSNBC's "AM Joy," former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne excoriated Attorney General William Barr for his partisan suppression of the inspector general's conclusions about the FBI's Russia investigation.

"Here's the problem. The inspector general has already found that the — the investigation was not motivated in the way that Bill Barr is saying it is, and he's directly taking all the work of all the people and he's throwing it in the trash," said Alksne. "And he's added this other layer of an investigation and now he's broken all the rules, because one of the rules in an investigation is you don't talk about it in the middle, and he's done that. And it's a very threatening thing to the person who did the initial investigation, and it's also a way of putting his thumb on the scale with the guy who's doing the followup investigation, [U.S. Attorney John] Durham. He was talked into issuing a press release that was completely improper."

GOP ridiculed for hyping Ohio anti-impeachment protest — and only a handful of Trump supporters showed

Published

on

The official Twitter of account of the Republican National Committee was buried in mockery after hyping up a video of anti-impeachment protesters in Youngstown, Ohio, where it appears only a handful of people showed up.

According to the tweet, "Ohioans are sick and tired of the Democrats’ impeachment charade. It’s time to STOP THE MADNESS!"

However, in the video from WKBN, which can be seen below, few people chose to show up for the cameras.

As one commenter noted with tongue-in-cheek, "Thought Ohio had a few more people than that."

That was the general consensus in the comments.

GOP lawmaker scrambles for excuses after being cornered with McConnell’s promise to rig Trump impeachment

Published

On CNN Saturday, anchor Martin Savidge confronted Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), one of Trump's biggest defenders on cable television, about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's claim that he was "coordinating" the impeachment strategy with the White House.

"Where is the impartiality there?" asked Savidge. "And it has to be a concern because, as you point out, you are an attorney and you would be worried if a member of the jury had already stated how they were going to consider."

"Yeah, we heard those comments yesterday, as everyone did," said Johnson. "You know, I've actually talked about this with some of my Democrat [sic] colleagues, those who are very much in favor of impeachment. I said isn't it a fair description of what he said? The way I heard that, Mitch McConnell is talking about the scheduling of the trial, what length of trial or what would be involved with that, with the White House, which is not unprecedented. That's what happened in the Clinton proceedings as well, they coordinated with the White House on scheduling. I don't think he's talking about the merits of the case. I think he's talking about how long will be allowed for this to go forward so I don't think there's anything inappropriate about that."
