Seth Meyers Rips FOX News For ‘Slobbering Over Trump’

“Most of the country agrees with Meyer’s assessment of the debate as largely useless and of President Trump as anything but the clear winner according to polls.”

President Trump is getting a lot of rave reviews for his performance in Tuesday night’s Presidential debate. The one place that seems to think the President was the clear winner is FOX News.

Seth Meyers not only pushed back on the idea that Trump was the clear winner. On his NBC show Late Night with Seth Meyers, the host questioned if the entire event was not one gigantic loss.

“Debate is not the right word. It was more like a collective brain hemorrhage. It was like watching democracy get a lobotomy,” he said.

FOX News pundit Dan Bongino said that Trump looked like an “apex predator”. In a separate segment, host Sean Hannity said that Trump was a “gladiator warrior.” Meyers bashed both of those takes.

“You watched that debate and saw an ‘apex predator’ and a ‘gladiator warrior fighter’? Because he didn’t look like a predator to me. Most of the time, he stood there with his head cocked like an old dog who just heard a twig snap. He held onto that podium the way my grandma holds onto her walker when they’re reading the Powerball numbers.

“When they weren’t slobbering all over him, Fox pundits and GOP allies were pretending they watched a different debate altogether,” he added.

Most of the country agrees with Meyer’s assessment of the debate as largely useless and of President Trump as anything but the clear winner according to polls.

Meyer’s vitriol was not reserved solely for FOX. He also called out former Senator and current CNN pundit Rick Santorum for his reaction to the President to whiffing when asked to condemn white supremacist organizations.

Meyer introduced a clip of Santorum’s defense of the President by saying the former Senator “for some reason, is still a CNN commentator—doing his level worst.”

He was asking the president to do something that he knows the president doesn’t like to do,” Santorum said of moderator Chris Wallace. “Which is, say something bad about people who support him.”

“I guess by that same token, Trump would accept an endorsement from ISIS if they praised him,” Meyer said, gobsmacked that Santorum would consider that an acceptable defense. “If they were smart, they would start waving Trump flags from the back of their trucks.”

NBC News has hired former CNN staffer Ryan Nobles as its Capitol Hill correspondent. Nobles spent the last eight years at CNN covering Washington D.C. politics. 

According to Deadline, Ken Strickland, NBC News Washington D.C. bureau chief announced the hiring in an internal memo. 

“It’s an exciting time to welcome Ryan, as we enter the final midterms sprint and prepare to cover a new Congress in just a few months,” the memo stated. 

In a tweet Monday, Nobles thanked his CNN colleagues and acknowledged the opportunity to report on so many important stories. 

“It was truly an honor to work with some of the best in the business at such a crucial time,” the tweet read. 

Meanwhile, Noble will begin his tenure a little more than two months away from the critical midterm election. 

“Many of our Washington colleagues know Ryan well — he’s been a staple at CNN, where he worked for eight years both on and off the Hill covering some of the biggest political stories of the decade,” Strickland said.

“We already have one of the best reporting teams in the business on the Hill, led by Garrett, our Senior Capitol Hill Correspondent, along with Ali, Allie, and a terrific lineup of digital reporters and producers,” he added. “I’m confident Ryan will strengthen that operation even further and hope you’ll join me in welcoming him to the team.”

Former President Donald Trump has reportedly filed a massive defamation lawsuit against CNN. According to The New York Post, the suit seeks $475 million in punitive damages. 

Trump alleges that the network used its influence to defeat him politically. He also alleges that CNN has ramped up its attacks on him in recent months out of fear that he will run again in 2024. 

Trump is facing a multitude of legal challenges including a criminal investigation from the U.S. Justice Department for his allegedly concealing classified documents. 

In August, federal agents raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence looking for any evidence related to the case. Last month, New York State Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit against Trump and some of his children accusing them of lying to banks and insurers over the value of his assets.

“As a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the left, CNN has tried to taint the Plaintiff with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of ‘racist,’ ‘Russian lackey,’ ‘insurrectionist,’ and ultimately ‘Hitler,’” the lawsuit claims.

A Congressional committee is currently investigating Trump’s alleged role in the Jan 6 Capitol riots.

Mehdi Hasan: ‘Liberal Media’ Downplayed New Italian Prime Minister’s ‘Ties to Fascism’

“How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things?”

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan took aim at the “quote unquote liberal media” for its lack of criticism of new Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and her ties to fascism.

The Mehdi Hasan Show host began Sunday’s show by defending a recent tweet discussing Meloni’s victory in Italy’s election, and the problematic nature of some of her comments.

He mentioned he expected Republicans to embrace the new Italian Prime Minister, saying they are “at best, to quote the President, semi-fascist themselves”.

Hasan continued by saying “what has been so depressing, is just how much of the quote unquote liberal media — the mainstream media — are giving her a pass or playing down her and her party’s fascist roots, focusing more on the fact that she is female, and less on the fact that she is a fascist. That has been deeply, deeply depressing to see.”

He concluded by equating headlines from The Washington Post and The New York Times, among others, to those surrounding the 2020 election that said Donald Trump wouldn’t participate in a coup attempt.

“Look, I have a humble suggestion for many of my colleagues in the quote unquote liberal media,” Hasan said while he ended his monologue. “How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things? People who want to overturn elections and ban Muslims. People who, as in the case of Italy’s next Prime Minister, spout great replacement theory, while running a political party that has a direct connection back to Benito Mussolini himself? Can we try doing that? Please?”
