Larry Elder goes over the media’s portrayal of Trump saying he is fucked: “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.” AS IF Trump was meaning connections between he and Russia were about to be found out were the reason driving his exclamation.
Larry reads through some headlines and then dives into the full quote.
Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked. Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency. It takes years and years and I won’t be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me. (WASHINGTON EXAMINER)
He then plays some Lawrence “socialist” O’Donnell to continue the point. The Sage finishes with an analogy to Trump being accused of saying “there are good Nazis and bad Nazis,” so-to-speak.
On MSNBC’s The Last Word on September 16, after former chess champion and Russian political activist Garry Kasparov charged that President Obama had “blown up [the] reputation of his office” by allowing Russian President Vladimir Putin to talk him down from his “red line” warning against Syria, host Lawrence O’Donnell tried to argue that Obama had not really lost face since he never specifically promised military action, even though the President warned of “enormous consequences” if chemical weapons were used.
Kasparov called out O’Donnell’s spin: “Now, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, I think, I agree that that was the goal, and that’s why President said, “red line.” I understand that red line means that if somebody crosses red line, then you act and don’t talk anymore.”
Larry Elder takes Lawrence O’Donnell and Obama to the tool shed on taxes and capital gains. I include video of Obama at the 2008 Democratic primaries responding to a challenge on the tax realities of Reagan and Bush’s/vs. Clinton’s tax policies. (Posted by Religio-Political Talk)
Far left multimillionaire and Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — the standard-bearer for a combative new progressivism — told MSNBC this week that she is not rich. Warren considers herself the intellectual leader of the #occupy criminal movement.
Hard to see how Warren wouldn’t be, by most standards, wealthy, according to the Personal Financial Disclosure form she filed to run for Senate shows that she’s worth as much as $14.5 million. She earned more than $429,000 from Harvard last year alone for a total of about $700,000, and lives in a house worth $5 million.
MSNBC contributor Lawrence O’Donnell will take over at the 10 pm slot, the cable network announced Tuesday. O’Donnell, who guest-hosted “Countdown” while Keith Olbermann was on leave, is a self-described socialist, and will fit in nicely with the rest of MSNBC’s prime-time lineup.
The 10 pm slot has up to this time been “Countdown” reruns, so MSNBC viewers will now be treated to a tad different far-left rant than Olbermann’s 8 pm far-left rant.
That said, O’Donnell’s segment will hardly be a breath of fresh air if his previous antics are any indication. He has a short, if colorful history of liberal outbursts. Let us review some of his greatest hits:
O’Donnell then launched into a vicious tirade against author and former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen that forced Scarborough to cut to commercial early. When the program returned, Scarborough carefully mediated the discussion.
The new MSNBC anchor has challenged the basic mental fortitude of Sarah Palin. Though that is hardly groundbreaking for a liberal, I suppose, O’Donnell even hosted a comedian to bizarrely mock Palin in drag.
O’Donnell retains the dubious honor of conducting “possibly the worst interview in history.” A member of Congress told him during an interview, “you’re illustrating why MSNBC’s viewership is in the tank.”
To his credit, O’Donnell was one of the few liberal media figures to accurately report that ObamaCare would mean a de facto tax increase–the largest one ever, by his account. But that didn’t stop him from offering his support.
