With the Vatican reportedly set to release a document soon which, among other things, holds that climate change is a manmade phenomenon, MSNBC host Chris Matthews devoted an entire segment which all but suggested that not only are conservative Republicans "science deniers," they're anti-Catholic.

But in the midst of all that, Matthews also found room to slam Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) as "Ayatollah-ish" for stating that it's arrogant to think man can change the Earth's climate and that God has somehow relinquished His control of the planet.

The revolving door between Democratic administrations, campaigns, and the news media swung once again on Tuesday. A producer on MSNBC’s The Ed Show is leaving the program at the end of the week to join the 2016 Democratic presidential campaign of self-described socialist Bernie Sanders. According to TVNewser, Arianna Jones will “be deputy communications manager for the campaign.”

On Monday’s The Ed Show, Michael Eric Dyson, MSNBC political analyst and frequent guest host on the "Lean Forward" network, used the ongoing controversy surrounding Rachel Dolezal claiming to be African American to deride Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Dyson asserted: “I bet a lot more black people would support Rachel Dolezal than would support say Clarence Thomas.”

Think of Hillary Clinton.  I know, I know, but work with me. Now think of the first 100 things that come to mind.  Is "change" one of them?  It is for Howard Dean, and Bill Kristol found that hilarious. On today's Morning Joe, explaining his early endorsement of Hillary, Dean claimed that "Hillary Clinton is change." That was enough to provoke hearty laughter in the normally-composed Kristol.  

Manifestly in a jocular mood, Kristol later turned the PC tables on Mika Brzezinski. When she claimed that young people are very enthusiastic about Hillary, Kristol told Mika that she needed to hang out with a more "diverse" group of them.

In what amounted as the only significant whiff of criticism of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday's Hardball program, NBC News senior political reporter Perry Bacon noted that the failure of bama/Clinton foreign policy was the reason that Clinton is not emphasizing her four years at Foggy Bottom on the campaign trail.

Rachel Dolezal pretended to be black for years as president of the Spokane NAACP. She's now become the "Caitlyn" Jenner of a "trans-black" discussion. People may want to identify as black when they are not. 

Always one for a controversial discussion about race in America, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry decided to jump in on the “trans-black” bandwagon, wondering out loud on her Saturday show:

Jeb Bush’s entry into the 2016 GOP primary race hands the liberal media an establishment candidate that they enjoy using as a tool to whack conservatives. Bush’s stances on immigration, Common Core and other issues have drawn praise from the likes of Chris Matthews who cooed: “He wants to run on his own terms. He’s not going to become a wacko bird. He’s not going to join the clown car...he believes in Common Core education. He believes in immigration.”

First, polls show Americans don't think Hillary is trustworthy.  Then her campaign manager denies that such polls exist. Then her pollster denies that the campaign manager didn't tell the truth about it. Not exactly a formula to build trust. 

On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough mocked Robby Mook for having, as our Jeff Meyer reported, denied the undeniable, claiming on yesterday's Face the Nation that "no poll" shows Americans don't trust Hillary.   Said Scarborough sarcastically: "well, actually, yeah, they do. You have to respect him for saying they don't." When Scarborough confronted Hillary pollster Joel Benenson with the fact that Mook "didn't tell the truth," Benenson replied: "He did tell the truth.  He got interrupted by John [Dickerson], who is a great guy.  That's the way these shows go."  Have a look at the clip: Dickerson didn't interrupt Mook, who had all the time to tell the truth and chose not to.

This week, the New York Times sinks its investigative teeth into Marco Rubio, and makes the bombshell discovery that the GOP presidential candidate had four traffic tickets in a 17-year span.

Meanwhile, MSNBC host Chris Matthews pops up on NBC's Meet the Press to absurdly declare Hillary Clinton a "centrist," and that "most Democrats are not lefties," while Newsweek  smears that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh's "ideals" have become the "mainstream" of the Republican Party.

Andrea Mitchell scored an interview with Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Friday, but spent the entire interview peppering the senator with questions about Hillary Clinton. This included pushing Sanders on whether Bill Clinton's claim of innocence would be enough to drop any investigation into the family's foundation.

Friday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC took a strange turn during a discussion of Bill Clinton’s latest comments about the Clinton Foundation scandal when co-host Mika Brzezinski demanded to know from panelist and New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters “why your paper is so interested in Marco Rubio's driveway” as opposed to continuing to dig into allegations surrounding the Clinton Foundation.

On Thursday night’s edition of MSNBC’s All In, host Chris Hayes turned to none other than former Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate and abortion activist Wendy Davis to trash Jeb Bush over his views concerning the need for two-parent households and Senator Lindsey Graham’s introduction of a bill in the Senate that would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks.
