MSNBC host Alex Wagner appeared to tie Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to ObamaCare opposition and libertarianism on Wednesday’s Now, with liberal guests Jared Bernstein and Mark Potok taking part in the anti-conservative argument. Wagner suggested that ObamaCare “extremism would seem to be of a piece with this radicalized rhetoric” that influenced the terrorist Tsarnaev.
MSNBC host Thomas Roberts took a hostile tone with RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer in a Thursday interview on MSNBC Live, suggesting the GOP just wants “to scream into an echo chamber” during the 2016 presidential cycle. Roberts appeared to take issue with the RNC’s campaign against planned Hillary Clinton biopics from CNN and NBC, asking if the RNC was “making a huge mistake with this ultimatum.”
MSNBC host and former DNC communications director Karen Finney mocked Reince Priebus' "rage" over the NBC/CNN Hillary Clinton biopics on Saturday's Disrupt, suggesting that the Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman is "full of you know what."
MSNBC host Karen Finney denounced Republican “scare tactics” over ObamaCare on Saturday’s Disrupt – and then employed liberal scare tactics to stress the benefits of ObamaCare. Finney further warned that the GOP wants to “[take] something away from people” in their repeal efforts, rattling off a long list of benefits that Americans would lose if ObamaCare was repealed.
MSNBC host Ed Schultz and guests railed against Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus on Saturday’s The Ed Show. Salon’s Joan Walsh concluded that Priebus is a “big cry baby” who’s trying to hide his “crack pot set of candidates in 2016.” Comedian Lizz Winstead agreed, describing the potential set of Republican presidential candidates as a “flotilla of fail.”
Joe Scarborough offered one of the most interesting ObamaCare metaphors to date on Friday’s Morning Joe, claiming that President Obama’s signature health care reform is “like a zombie” that is “neither alive or completely dead.” The MSNBC host added that the law “just sort of slowly marches on,” amidst a barrage of criticism from both the right and the left.
Now host Alex Wagner and MSNBC weekend host Karen Finney used an interview with Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) to blast Republicans for their opposition to ObamaCare, with Finney – a former DNC communications director – suggesting the law is about “life and death” for some people. Cole could barely get a word in edgewise as he was badgered by the dynamic duo.
Joe Scarborough blasted NBC and MSNBC for liberal bias on Wednesday’s Morning Joe, criticizing his network’s parent company for producing what could be a “splashy biopic” about Hillary Clinton set to be released in 2015. Scarborough accused MSNBC of promoting liberal candidates, claiming the network is “exactly the same” as Fox News when it comes to pushing a partisan agenda.
MSNBC host Alex Wagner rehashed an old and much-overblown feud between President Obama and Gov. Jan Brewer (R-Ariz.) on Thursday’s Now, hyping Obama and Brewer’s first tarmac meeting since the Arizona governor allegedly wagged her finger at the president in early 2012. Wagner blasted Brewer for not giving President Obama “the respect that should be given the commander in chief,” asking her panel why the governor never apologized.
Ed Schultz has spent weeks blaming Detroit’s recent bankruptcy filing on Republican policies, even though the city has been firmly in Democratic hands for decades. The bombastic MSNBC host has called the city a “conservative utopia,” arguing that Republican anti-union policies have “gutted Detroit.”
Schultz’s latest tirade came on Saturday’s The Ed Show, when the left-wing host bizarrely claimed that Republicans have “taken democracy away from Detroit.”
