MSNBC pulls plug on Trump after Presidential Meltdown

“We can’t have it, it wasn’t rooted in reality”

Daily Beast: While CNN and Fox News both carried President Donald Trump’s 16-minute speech in its entirety Thursday evening—his first since prematurely and falsely declaring victory on Election Night—MSNBC pulled the plug after just 30 seconds.

Trump was ranting about “illegal votes” when anchor Brian Williams broke in to say, “Here we are again in the unusual position of not only interrupting the president of the United States but correcting the president of the United States.” He added, “There are no illegal votes that we know of. There has no been no Trump victory that we know of.”

Later, Williams explained to viewers that MSNBC’s decision not to carry the president’s remarks “was not done as a stunt or out of theatrics, we just can’t have it,“ adding, “It was not rooted in reality. And at this point where our country is, it’s dangerous.”

Nicolle Wallace, who watched the speech in order to report on it, said, “I’m proud to work at a network that didn’t contribute to what Trump just did,” calling it “one of the more dangerous acts” he has undertaken as president.

Trump is in an ‘uncontrollable rage’: Mary Trump says ‘somebody has to step in and stop’ her uncle

Raw Story: The president’s niece dissected her uncle’s highly controversial press conference during a Thursday evening appearance on MSNBC.

Anchor Lawrence O’Donnell asked Mary Trump what she saw watching Donald Trump’s address to the nation.

“Well, we’re seeing a man who is in a unique position,” she replied. “Donald has never been in this place before where there’s nobody to bail him out, there’s nobody to buy him out. He’s desperate, he’s flailing, and there’s literally nothing he can do legitimately except to watch this play out helplessly.”

“This wasn’t just Donald obfuscating or lying. This was Donald talking about an attempted coup,” she explained. “The leader of a country trying desperately to de-legitimize an election. it is obscene and somebody has to step in and stop him.”

O’Donnell noted reports her uncle is in a downwards spiral mentally.

“What would be your imagined view of what your uncle is going through in the White House now?” O’Donnell asked.

“Oh, he’s in an uncontrollable rage, I would imagine,” she replied.

  1. My intention was not to say Trudeau and Trump were similar, I only meant to say things aren’t perfect here either. Trudeau did a good job on Covid, and he’s not corrupt as you pointed out like Trump probably is.
    I am concerned about where deficits are headed, both sides of the border. Enjoyed the video.

    • You’re concerned about the deficit;

      At this point the deficit concern is a worldwide issue and justifiably so. I have that too. Concern you should have, but cutting back in times like this is a US republican forté and only possible in the US because of its general attitude towards the acceptance of cutting safety nets to save a dollar during chaos. That my friend is the definition of banana republic. I think it was Gordon Duff who just wrote that making it in the US is a gamble.
      But in Canada even the most right winger politician would not attempt such a thing. The most they would allow themselves to do is to cut immigration. And as you should know they just announced that they will boost it by 401,000 new people.

  2. Trump reminds me of Sartor in the masterpiece Christopher Nolan film TENET.

    “If I can’t have it, nobody will.”

    In possession of the algorithm which controls the world, he tried to end the world because he was going to die.

    Trump can’t have the world, so is he going to start a nuclear world war to end it?

    It is a very real concern given Trump’s insane mind. US Military needs to be prepared TO STAND DOWN.

  3. This is the stuff of tin pot dictators, not the leader of the free world. As a Canadian, it’s very sad to see things politically sink this low. We have issues this side of the border too with national politics, a minority government acting like it has a majority. Trudeau prorogued the government, Trump probably wishes he could do the same down there.

    Trump is currently in a narcissistic rage which is described as following;
    as intense anger, aggression, or passive-aggression when a narcissist experiences a setback or disappointment, which shatters his (or her) illusions of grandiosity, entitlement, and superiority, and triggers inner inadequacy, shame, and vulnerability.

    It’s gonna be a bumpy ride till he finally hits reality. Hopefully the dog and pony show ends soon!

    • What a Trump like attempt at spreading nonsense on Trudeau. Can you imagine if Trudeau was eliminating the entirety of Health Canada to satisfy a few lousy corporations while enriching himself. Lol. That’s what Trump has been trying to do for four years and with the clowns placed as judges he will probably succeed. Can you imagine if Trudeau would cut funding for covid hot spots in Québec because he wasn’t getting along with François Legault.

      Arrête ton char. For fifty years I’ve lived on both sides and one of them happens to be a banana republic.

      At least your second and third paragraphs make sense.
