Sunday afternoon’s MSNBC Live displayed the most recent instance of how the job of a Republican commentator on MSNBC is to keep away from disagreeing an excessive amount of with the liberal information community’s extra far-left analysts as weekend host Alex Witt praised frequent visitor Susan Del Percio after the Republican strategist declined to voice disagreement with fellow visitor Howard Dean’s assault on President Donald Trump’s health for workplace.
Shortly earlier than 1:00 p.m. ET, after Del Percio had already voiced settlement with Dean over Republicans making an attempt to undermine the FBI’s investigation of the Trump marketing campaign, host Witt introduced up a tweet by MSNBC contributor Howard Dean wherein the previous DNC chairman known as the President a “clear and present danger” to the U.S. who “needs to be removed from office.”
Dean reiterated that he believes Trump is “a danger to the United States of America,” including that the President “is in bed with our enemy, the Russians.” He then accused President Trump of “enabling” Russia’s makes an attempt to intervene in Eastern European elections, and accused him of “aiding and abetting the enemies of the United States.”
Witt then turned to her different visitor and requested: “Susan, do you think your friend Howard is going a little far?”
At first, it seemed like Dean’s evaluation was so excessive that even an MSNBC-fashion Republican would dissent as Del Percio laughed and commenced her response: “I think — I mean, I think that’s his opinion, and he’s entitled to it.” She then added: “I don’t think there’s anything that’s legal that will lead to that happening that we’ve seen happen as of yet.”
As Dean injected, “I agree,” Del Percio continued: “Okay, so we’re sort of on the same page.”
Dean and Del Percio — who seem collectively frequently on MSNBC on weekends — smiled and appeared amused at their settlement as Witt concluded the phase: “Which is why I like having you guys on. It’s always very civilized.”
It additionally supplies yet one more instance of the MSNBC liberal echo chamber phenomenon.
