Is Willie Geist a rethug?

Did anyone see his nasty comment about Biden? Something along the lines of, "What is Biden going to do on September 26th when he doesn't have a teleprompter in front of him and he has to debate trump?" John Heilemann quickly corrected Willie's wooden ass by pointing out that a convention speech is always done by teleprompter and trump will be using a teleprompter for his convention speech too.

1. Yes he is

 

He was brought in to MSNBC by Tucker Carlson and named his son after George Bush.

can barely READ a teleprompter. As for Harris, virtually no one
viewed her attack on Joe at the debates as "good". It was widely criticized and almost cost her the VP nomination.

Last edited Fri Aug 21, 2020, 08:30 AM - Edit history (1)

Just now he said something about the donations to the border wall fraud believed they were doing something to 'protect the country'.

Right. He's just a closet right winger in my mind.

On edit: What I'm criticizing here is Willie's acceptance of the idea that the border wall "protects" the country. He needs to remove that idea one notch from reality: contributors "believe" the border wall would protect the country. Because it is a giant point of debate, and there is no measureable evidence or argument for the idea that the border wall has made us safer, will make us safer. Blind acceptance of that idea is delusion.

21. You're free to your own interpretation of what was said.

For me, his meaning was clear. I watch just about every day, despite the regular attacks on Joe and Mika. But with Willie today, he tried, and failed, to hide his own disdain for Biden.

If it was as you described, then John Heilemann would not have had to put Willie in his place.

will return to the unwatchable category. I'm looking forward that day.
