MSNBC: Forget ‘Idiot’ Trump, Just Hand Biden the Election!

0 8

The hackery of the Democratic Party shills in the media seems to reach new depths every day, with MSNBC serving as a constant example of this unashamed lying on behalf of a left-wing narrative. The latest instance being a Friday morning segment of Morning Joe, when the show’s leftist panel exploited the coronavirus pandemic to declare that it was time to “just hand Joe Biden the presidency.” Why even bother to have an election?   

They welcomed on fellow partisan hack Dave Aronberg, State Attorney for Palm Beach County, who promptly ripped into Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp for opposing government mandates on mask wearing:

Willie, remember, it was the most devious kind of voter suppression that got Governor Kemp elected in the first place. So we shouldn’t be surprised that he is trying to politicize this pandemic now even when his neighboring governor,  Kay Ivey of Alabama has issued a mandatory mask order. When your policies are so regressive that they make Alabama look progressive, then you got a problem. Also in April he tried to make a statement with the president by opening up Georgia before any other state had opened. And in return he got thrown under the bus by the president who disagreed with him. So here he is again doing the same thing, not learning his lesson and leading with his chin. But unfortunately the good people of Georgia are gonna have to suffer as a result.

The media have loved the voter suppression narrative ever since their darling Stacey Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018, despite the fact that it isn’t true. Abrams lost by over 50,000 votes, not exactly a tight race stolen by that evil Republican, like the media like to claim.

But as viewers of the show already know, far-left co-host Mika Brzezinski could not keep herself from going a step further, falsely suggesting Kemp was against masks altogether and that we should hand Joe Biden and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms the presidency and vice presidency:

I just — the stupidity is boundless here. It is truly boundless. I mean, masks have been determined to keep people safe. It is a legitimate and credible mitigation technique. Since Trump himself has botched this so much, this governor now is, I don’t know, desperately trying to get some attention from Donald Trump, suing Keisha Bottoms. I mean, why don’t we just hand Joe Biden the presidency and Keisha Bottoms the vice presidency because what they’re doing is highlighting that she is trying to save lives while these — what’s the word? These idiots.

This ignores the fact that Governor Kemp has been steadfastly urging all citizens to wear masks, he just views legal mandates as an overreach of government power. Also, suggesting that we hand the presidency and the vice presidency over to Democrats solely on that basis demonstrates how desperate MSNBC is to steal the 2020 election. 

If you let businesses decide if they want to require masks or not, it’s playing politics. If you throw people in nursing homes to die, like Andrew Cuomo, it’s smart policy. Got it, media. 

Realtors decided to sponsor this hackery by the media.

WILLIE GEIST:  More than half of the states in this country now have issued mandatory mask requirements to help stop the spread of covid-19, with Arkansas and Colorado the latest to join that growing list. But Georgia’s Republican governor Brian Kemp and his administration filed a lawsuit seeking to block Atlanta from requiring residents to wear masks. The lawsuit challenges Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms decision to revert to Phase One guidelines, mandating masks in public places. On Twitter Governor Kemp wrote this, “this lawsuit is on behalf of the Atlanta business owners and their hardworking employees who are struggling to survive during these difficult times”. Joining us now, State Attorney for Palm Beach County Dave Aronberg. Dave, good to see you this morning. Let’s go one state north of you into Georgia. The governor going to court over this. You have the mayors of cities like Savannah and Rome and Augusta and of course Atlanta saying you gotta wear a mask in our city and the governor going to court to say, no you don’t have to wear a mask. What’s he up to here?

DAVE ARONBERG: Willie, remember, it was the most devious kind of voter suppression that got Governor Kemp elected in the first place. So we shouldn’t be surprised that he is trying to politicize this pandemic now even when his neighboring governor,  Kay Ivey of Alabama has issued a mandatory mask order. When your policies are so regressive that they make Alabama look progressive, then you got a problem. I still think that the governor has a leg up in the lawsuit though because generally state orders can pre-empt local orders that conflict with them. But here we’re talking about a pandemic so we are in uncharted territory so I think that the mayors have a claim under their police powers to act in the residents’ health interests to impose these mask orders. But it is still an uphill battle for local governments in this area.I think though, the governor is going to embarrass himself because he’s certain to lose in the court of public opinion where most people support these orders. But it wouldn’t be his first time to humiliate himself, because remember back in April when he came out and said that he didn’t know that asymptomatic people could spread the virus, we all knew that back then. Also in April he tried to make a statement with the president by opening up Georgia before any other state had opened. And in return he got thrown under the bus by the president who disagreed with him. So here he is again doing the same thing, not learning his lesson and leading with his chin. But unfortunately the good people of Georgia are gonna have to suffer as a result.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Well that’s the thing, Michael Steele, I just — the stupidity is boundless here. It is truly boundless. I mean, masks have been determined to keep people safe. It is a legitimate and credible mitigation technique. It even could be possible to help businesses open up and revive the economy if we actually have uniformed social distancing guidelines, mask use, and a number of other measures. But since the government have botched this so much. Since Trump himself has botched this so much, this governor now is, I don’t know, desperately trying to get some attention from Donald Trump, suing Keisha Bottoms. I mean, why don’t we just hand Joe Biden the presidency and Keisha Bottoms the vice presidency because what they’re doing is highlighting that she is trying to save lives while these — what’s the word? These idiots. These idiots just want to push against mitigation measures that scientists and doctors that we’re having on these shows, all shows, shows that go on Fox, they all  say mask use works, hand sanitizer works, social distancing works. Other countries have mitigated this virus and brought the numbers down. And these people want the numbers to go up? Why? To make Keisha Bottoms look better? 

MICHAEL STEELE: Well, I think there are two words that you used Mika that are operative here, stupid and desperate. That is a dangerous combination particularly in the hands of a governor who doesn’t have the competency to figure out that masks save lives and that masks, particularly when you’re in the middle of a surge within your own state are there to make sure you don’t lose control of that situation. What the mayor is doing, and all she is saying is, I’m not shutting down your business, I’m not telling you you can’t gather, you can’t socialize, I’m saying you have to wear masks in or
der to protect yourselves and your community. So there’s a political side of this, too, and you put your finger on it at the end there. And that’s what I — I want to ask Dave about that piece. The politics of this, how do elected officials reconcile, because you have two very, you know, important elected officials in this space at two very opposite conclusions as to how to safeguard the people in their community. How should they be striking this balance? I mean, yes, you can say well we have to follow the science or no we have to follow the business community, and there are legitimate issues raised in both of those quarters. How did you do it in your state? And how should elected officials across states be looking at this issue when you have such diametrically opposed views on how to protect people? 

ARONBERG: This is about politics. This is not about public safety. The governor wants to run for president, he wants to inherit the Trump base, this is about owning the libs, this is shirts versus skins, us versus them. In Florida, unfortunately, the governor is also playing politics with this pandemic and he’s refused to issue a mandatory mask order although he’s not gone as far as repealing the local ordinances but still there’s a model for doing it right. You don’t have to do it that way, you can be like Governor Mike Dewine in Ohio who has a 75% popularity rating because he wants everyone to wear a mask and he refused to politicize this pandemic. But meanwhile, in Florida you’ve got no mandatory mask order. You’ve got an order to open up all of our schools next month and you’ve got a million doses of the drug hydroxychloroquine because the president recommended the drug so the governor ordered it. That’s a Trump trifecta. I think it’s sad because we should all be looking at public safety instead of politics when it comes to this unprecedented in our lifetime pandemic. But sadly, the people in many red states are not feeling the kind of protection from their government as people in many blue states and that shouldn’t happen.
