Since the November 3 election, many TV journalists have begun issuing ugly calls for vengeance and “accountability” against not just President Trump himself, but also his administration, and even his supporters.
Evidently some journalists found the last four years so intolerable that a looming Biden Presidency has made them bitter, sore winners. Just a day after the election was held, MSNBC political analyst Jason Johnson had this advice for Biden: “You cannot come into this White House with the idea that these people [Republicans] aren’t the enemy. They are.”
That same week, media commentator and former Navy Officer Malcolm Nance had this to say on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher about the Americans who voted for Trump: “These people have revealed themselves for the racists for the racists that they are, for the tribalists that they are.”
Over the course of several evenings in mid-November, CNN’s Chris Cuomo issued a series of threats and warnings against so-called “enablers” of President Trump. On November 11, he declared: “Shame on them. A wax museum is less cold-blooded than these people are. And let them know, they are going to lose way more than this election.”
Just five days later, Cuomo offered this rebuttal to those who had accused him of “targeting” political opponents: “Yeah. You are being targeted. But not because you’re victims — because you’re victimizing the rest of us.”
On November 27, former ESPN and MSNBC host Keith Olbermann wished for enough Trump administration people in prison “that they can hold reunions, and birthday parties.” He continued:
“We want the prisons so filled with Trumps, and Trump flunkies, and Trump apologists, and Trump enablers, that we have to convert Trump buildings into new God-damned Trump prisons.”
