Michelle Goldberg is a far left columnist for the New York Times. During a recent appearance on MSNBC, she made some outrageous comments about President Trump.
Here’s a partial transcript via Red State:
Firstly, Caitlin Huey-Burns — reporter for RealClearPolitics — incidentally referred to Trump as “the leader of the free world,” mid-insult.
Goldberg took issue with that characterization:
“He’s not the leader of the free world. But, sorry…”
“Angela Merkel is the leader of the free world. … He’s a sort of junior player in a bloc of authoritarian countries. … He’s part of a bloc that includes [Russian President] Vladimir Putin, [Philippines President Rodrigo] Duterte. … He’s part of kind of an axis of power of thugs.”*
And that’s the news, folks.
But not quite all.
[*I believe the word she used is “thugs.” See for yourself in the video below.]
Host Katy Tur provided a hair of pushback:
“[Trump] is not rounding people up and murdering them without any due process.”
Ready for Goldberg’s reply? Sit back:
“He would certainly like to.”

It’s amazing that she can say this on the air at MSNBC with virtually no push back from host Katy Tur.
This is why so many people can’t stand the media.
