Recently, former MSNBC host Chris Matthews published “This Country,” his memoir of major historical moments in America. You may have known Matthews as the host of MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ or from his political analysis. Just over a year ago, he left the network following accusations of inappropriate flirting.
Many of the country’s governors have been unhappy with the White House’s response and direction when is comes to the COVID-19 pandemic. And this isn’t just a Democratic lawmaker issue, Republicans have been upset as as well.
It’s apparent to most that President Donald Trump doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing, especially with regard to the coronavirus pandemic.
Here are some of his “greatest hits” —
President Donald Trump was bragging about his TV ratings again on Friday. He defended his daily press briefings and bashed the media as well as other perceived opponents.
“Because the T.V. Ratings for the White House News Conference’s are the highest, the Opposition Party (Lamestream Media), the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats &, of course, the few remaining RINO’S, are doing everything in their power to disparage & end them,” Trump tweeted.
Trump is throwing a tantrum because of the immediate pushback that he has gotten for his idea to "reopen the economy" by Easter.
Ahead of his address on the coronavirus, Trump attacked the media for reporting the truth on the spread of the pandemic in the United States.
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow is beating Fox News with the exact kind of viewers that Democrats need to get to the polls to be able to take back Congress in November.
The American people are smart enough to recognize that Trump is unfit, incompetent, and corrupt – and that's nobody's fault but his own.
Trump has cleverly enlisted the help of closeted bigots who gleefully embrace his Jim Crow idealism and ushered them into the light. Racism is now front and center in our country, and the maestro of this mayhem is the President of the United States of America. However, if our fate as a country is left in the hands of Mr. Trump, these states will no longer be united and divided we will all fall.
Look, the facts are the president is not keeping his word. He signed 50 executive orders since the day he took office, which, if you do the math, is about one every five days.
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tried to attack the media by saying that someone should call her when the media's numbers are higher than Trump's. The problem is that they already are.
Whether the subject is a nitwitted stare down with North Korea, a despicable health care proposal, an allegiance to White Supremacy or a political rally that espouses incomprehensible hate and anger, Donald Trump voters are bereft of common sense and free will in discussing his faults and failures. Their sickness is a stain on America, and it must be eradicated.
Not only is Trump clearly unwilling and unable to do his own job, but he lashes out journalists for doing theirs.
The GOP candidate decided that assaulting a reporter was a smarter strategy than defending his support of the Republican health care plan.
Hillary Clinton called out FBI Director James Comey, Putin, and even suggested that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia, but the one group that she should not have left out while discussing her 2016 defeat was the media.
That this this school shooting went by without any substantive cries to address our nation’s gun culture and safety laws, especially regarding domestic abusers, is another indictment against this impervious predicament.
Trump spends no small amount of time casting aspersion on the judiciary, the press, and the intelligence community; because they do their jobs.
The days of pretending that what is happening under Trump isn’t “serious” are over; it is time for a concerted media push-back.
Trump turned a news conference into an anti-media circus event like he is still entertaining his sycophants at campaign rallies.
What lesson is the supposed party of family values teaching our country’s children when its leaders put money and power over the good of the country?
