MSNBC is one of the main planks of the anti-Trump #Resistance.
The left-wing network has a roster of hosts that do nothing but sling mud at the right.
But one MSNBC host actually got calls for termination for a shocking reason.
The Democrats believe they have an opening to take down Donald Trump.
They’ve tried numerous times with Russiagate, Ukrainegate, and other hoaxes that quickly turned into nothing-burgers.
But the Democrats’ efforts to undo the results of the 2016 election got a shot in the arm with the Wuhan coronavirus.
The unprecedented forced shutdown of the U.S. economy has made Trump’s path to victory rockier, and the Democrats are doing everything in their power to protect Joe Biden.
However, Biden’s free pass from the corporate press is over.
Biden has been forced out of his self-imposed exile to answer questions about sexual assault allegations levied against him by former staffer Tara Reade.
The so-called mainstream media ignored the story for five weeks, but the simmering controversy finally bubbled over as Reade persisted.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes, one of the network’s personalities most afflicted by Trump Derangement Syndrome, issued a soft rebuke of the media’s coverage—or lack thereof—and said questions need to be answered.
For that, #FireChrisHayes began trending on Twitter.
That’s how deranged the left has become.
They want to fire a reporter for doing his job and reporting on one of the biggest stories in the news.
The reaction to Hayes is proof that left-wing audiences have been conditioned to receive Democrat agitprop, not the actual news.
In fact, the backlash was so severe, Hayes had to address the matter on air:
“A lot of people were unhappy with the fact we covered the story, which is why you may have seen the hashtag ‘FireChrisHayes’ trending on Twitter yesterday. Needless to say, I received a lot of feedback about the segment…”
“To me, the lesson of the ‘Me Too’ movement is not that you believe every allegation. Of course not, no.”
That’s funny, because that most certainly was not the standard when Kavanaugh was being accused of being a gang rapist.
The Democrats only discovered due process when Biden was in the crosshairs.
Hayes concluded, “The lesson is to take allegations seriously, to swiftly investigate the facts surrounding them as best as one can while leaving aside the worst, age-old instincts to drag the women who make those claims through the mud.”
It’s yet to be seen if the claims against Biden will amount to anything, but one thing is crystal clear – the Democrats and their media allies have two separate sets of standards when covering sexual assault allegations.
