Trump-defending GOPers are now nothing more than ‘Russian assets’ pushing Kremlin propaganda: Morning Joe

Published

on

Kicking off “Morning Joe” after the holiday weekend, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough cut right to the chase and called Republicans who are still defending Donald Trump after two weeks of impeachment hearings “Russian assets” who have no problem pushing “active propaganda” from the Kremlin.

Using a combative interview between NBC’s Chuck Todd and Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) on Sunday as a springboard — where the NBC pointed out the senator he is being duped — Scarborough trashed the Trump dead-enders.

“It’s going to be a very important week not only the history of the Trump administration, but of this country,” Scarborough began. “Think about how telling it is that after two weeks of damning testimony day after day and after Republicans are given a week to prepare, an additional week after those two weeks to prepare for the president’s defense, they were left yesterday parroting Russian propaganda points about Ukraine interfering in the 2016 election.”

“This is what’s so damning,” he continued. “Those Russian propaganda talking points have already been knocked down and discredited by the United States1 17 intel agencies. and the United States Senate got a briefing from the intel community to tell them specifically that what John Kennedy, what Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana said yesterday on ‘Meet the Press’ was not only a lie, but that it was active Russian propaganda and had warned the senators that the Russians had been pushing this propaganda line for years.”

“If you haven’t been paying much attention over the past week because of the holidays, it’s important to understand you saw two — two really moving, important weeks of testimony and now the Republicans are coming back, they still have no defense, and they’re actually reduced now — they’re doing nothing but repeating Russia propaganda points,” Scarborough maintained. “As somebody said yesterday, if they do that, knowing the 17 intel agencies told them it was a lie and being warned in the United States Senate, then actually they’re not ignorant, that they’ve actually turned themselves into being Russian assets — that’s where we are as a nation.”

Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying threat from coronavirus: report

Published

on

Major Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity spent weeks assuring viewers that the novel coronavirus wasn't a serious threat. In recent weeks, however, they have shifted to a different narrative, acknowledging that the virus is dangerous but giving President Donald Trump credit for taking action and criticizing Democrats' lack of action — even though many Democrats, in fact, warned the pubic first.

But according to The Daily Beast, even as there is no clear end to the crisis in sight, and even as the U.S. crosses 13,000 deaths, many Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying the virus, either telling viewers it wasn't as bad as advertised and urging the president to end public safety measures against it.

The dangers of Trump TV: MSNBC host hammers Fox News as ‘genuine public health threat’ amid pandemic

Published

on

Tuesday night, Fox News decided that all anyone needed to do is to pump Americans with a Malaria drug and send them back to work to save President Donald Trump's economy.

Speaking Wednesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes bashed the conservative network for downplaying the seriousness of coronavirus, saying that they are "a genuine public health threat."

While Trump has advisers like Dr. Anthony Fauci, he also has the unofficial advisers he sees on Fox News.

They "are coalescing around the idea the whole thing is just overblown and we need to pump everyone full of the malaria drug and get them back to work. This is what you heard if you watch trump tv just last night," Hayes said. He then played clips illustrating exactly that, with hosts ranting and raving about the virus not being as serious as the flu.

‘Don’t let him rewrite history’: GOP ex-congressman slams Trump for painting fewer than 100,000 COVID-19 deaths as a victory

Published

on

At Wednesday's coronavirus task force press conference, President Donald Trump reiterated his claim that if fewer than 100,000 Americans die from COVID-19, it will be a victory for him.

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) had none of it.

He ignored the warnings. He ignored the scientists & doctors. He refused to prepare. He lied about the virus. This country wasn’t ready. People got sick. People died. People lost their jobs. Because he cared more about himself than the country.

Don’t let him rewrite history. https://t.co/9snqoJ1VQI
