Hardball - Andrew Sullivan bashes Malcolm Nance

Malcolm wasn't there, of course, but his name came up and Sullivan started in on him.

Basically, because I can't give a verbatim account, Sullivan tried his best to discredit Nance.

And he did it by talking over the lady who brought his name up.

1. Wonder what the Russians have on Andrew Sullivan?

That would be the only answer.

29. Sullivan is a dick and has been for years.

He's the one supporting Trump immigration policies seeming to forget that under Trump's rules, he himself would not be allowed in because of his HIV status.

He's the worst kind of GOP asshole. One bitching about government while he's got his arm upto the shoulder in the cookie jar.

26. Tweety doesn't know who Nance is,

 

Ever see the results of the reporters who went on Jeopardy? Tweety can thank Wolf Blitzer because Wolf scored negative points for last place, Tweety was on a different day but he only scored like 100 points.

That makes Wolf the dumbest cable news anchor and Tweety 2nd place.

Exactly what makes his opinion worth anything again? Why was he on in th first place? That is, aside from being in the club that we ain't in.

7. Sullivan called Nance a "fantacist"...

...and a purveyor of conspiracy theories.

Both Zerlina Maxwell and Michael Steele glared at him like they were thinking, "you f@$#ing punk!"

On top of that, Sullivan opined with his British accent and zero awareness of irony that the number 1 issue in 2020 will be the need to stem the tide of all these immigrants.

8. That's really bad form

You don't go on TV and trash somebody for no reason. Especially a guy like Malcolm Nance who is a regular commentator on the network, and his reputation is impeccable. Wait until a night when Nance is there to defend himself. Chris Matthews should have cut Sullivan off immediately.

Had been reading a LBN post that had a link back to Raw Story and found the video for this segment there.

I've pretty much stopped watching Tweety. He is just useless.

11. You are welcome and I am surprised it was up so soon on Youtube

Usually MSNBC has it direct on their site first before it hits Youtube (although maybe Raw Story was the one that put it there). That was pretty mind-boggling but you could tell at the end that Sullivan's HUGE gulp of whatever was left in his HUGE mug was an attempt to cover for the frenzy that he apparently worked himself into in order to give viewers a taste of his masterful performance art.

partly because of that particular aspect.



But he's a weathervane when it comes to his positions, which constantly shift depending on which way the wind is blowing.

bought a new car a few years ago and it came with Sirius satellite radio. It started as a free trial, but it's addictive at only $6/month for 140 or so channels. (not sure how old you are, but most of the original MTV VJs are on there now - Alan Hunter, Mark Goodman, Nina Blackwood and a few others)

27. Maxwell was making the point that,

 

the rise of white nationalism is happening world wide. Sullivan interrupted and put the blame on immigration so as to take the blame away from white nationalists.

Sullivan is/was a staunch Republican defender who wants to be accepted by them even though they bash gay people like him.

32. I don't know anything about Andrew Sullivan other than I see his name a lot on here.

I doubt I could pick his face out if someone showed it to me. He's one of those people on the MSNBC shows that I don't pay much attention to but some other people apparently do.

On the other hand, I have become extremely familiar and continuously impressed by Malcolm Nance.

Bottom line, I trust Malcolm Nance more than I do what's-his-name.

39. Malcolm Nance has "predictive validity".

His books have always contained information that was shocking to read (and, frankly, at the time, hard to believe) but then, later on, it's been reported by the media to be completely true.

A recent example was from his last book, "The Plot to Destroy Democracy". I read that book as soon as it came out. He talks about Maria Butina, a person I'd never even heard of, and he describes her relationships with prominent Republicans and the NRA. He nearly comes right out and calls her a Russian spy. I thought that was crazy. There was NO WAY that someone like that could be so obvious with her shady dealings and not be busted. Not eight weeks later, she WAS arrested for being a Russian agent.

I am a huge fan of Malcolm Nance. He knows what he is talking about.

And apparently has added insight into Rykov going back to 2016 when he made his Facebook confession.
