    CNN White House correspondent John Harwood said President Trump's reelection strategy is to use his fixation on race to rile up white voters about "black and brown people" in the United States. LEMON: The president is downplaying the pandemic as some kids with sniffles and rambling about race and black people thanking him and on and on. I would like to know who those black people are. But, why? Why is he doing this? JOHN HARWOOD, CNN WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: Don, the president is fixated on two distinct ideas. One is that he had this strong economy that was going...

    CNN White House correspondent John Harwood called President Donald Trump psychologically damaged Thursday after the president railed against his detractors. “This was a very disturbing tableau for the country,” Harwood said after the president’s remarks addressing the Senate’s vote to acquit Trump. . . . He added: “It was dark because he’s made clear that his mind is dark. This is somebody in deep psychological distress right now.

    John Harwood, formerly of CNBC, kicked off his new start at CNN on a very humiliating downslope so severe that he had to delete his own embarrassing tweet due to the mocking blowback he received. How bad was it? So bad that Harwood reached back almost 160 years in history to compare the senators voting against more witnesses during the Trump impeachment trial to the old Confederacy. Although Harwood might think his February 1 tweet might have disappeared down the memory hole, nothing on the web is ever permanently gone and his absurd words will live on for all eternity:

    CNBC's John Harwood, best known for his extreme bias against Republican and conservatives and in favor of Democrats, has let his Trump Derangement Syndrome get the better of him in the form of tweeting displeasure over the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Like many Democrats, Harwood was outraged that Trump went around members of Congress, even though that's what a commander-in-chief can do. How many of Obama's scandalous actions went right around the Republican Congress?
  • Trump is Wall Street’s favorite to win in 2020, but his reelection prospects look bad in state polls

    Presidents who seek reelection usually win. So Las Vegas oddsmakers, despite President Donald Trump’s low-40s approval ratings, still rate him even money for another term. Wall Street expects him to win next year. But a look at state-by-state data clarifies the scale of Trump’s challenge. As the president tries to rally supporters at a 2020 kickoff rally in Orlando on Tuesday, he is fighting from behind. A new Quinnipiac University poll of Florida showed the president trailing former Vice President Joe Biden by nine percentage points, 50%-41%, in their potential matchup for that state’s 29 electoral votes. Trump also trailed...

    Throughout the 2016 campaign and since, the president and his party have vowed to kick-start tepid Obama-era economic growth. New government data show that Trump, too, has failed to reach the 3 percent promised land, according to one major metric. The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis measured 2018 growth at 2.9 percent, matching the peak Obama enjoyed in 2015. For the rest of the president’s term, economic forecasters agree, that number will decline.

    Put this into the category of delusional thinking... CNBC chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood with a well-known antipathy towards Republicans and President Donald Trump stated on Sunday on the MSNBC Weekends with Alex Witt that via what he claims he was told by a No Labels founder that it is possible that the Senate could convict Trump on impeachment charges. That would mean that even if every Democrat voted to convict, they would still need 20 Republicans to vote that way for the requisite two-thirds of the Senate.Mark that up to a personal fantasy of Harwood especially considering and it is hard...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fended off Democrat challenger Robert Francis O’Rourke to win re-election in a high-profile Senate race Tuesday, but establishment media pundits, Hollywood celebrities, and liberal activists did not lose hope — they had now moved on to dreams of “Beto 2020.” Cruz finished a surprising second in the 2016 Republican presidential primary and began the Senate race as a prohibitive favorite. However, O’Rourke visited fiercely conservative parts of the state that his party had long since given up on, while shattering fundraising records despite shunning donations from outside political groups and pollster advice. Cruz argued that his...
  • Democrats hold 7 point advantage ahead of midterms as Trump's base comes back home: NBC-WSJ poll

    CNBC ^ | 11/03/2018 | John Harwood
    President Donald Trump's late campaign blitz targeting immigrants has rallied the Republican base of white working-class voters, helping to curb the Democratic advantage heading into Tuesday's midterm elections for Congress. The election-eve NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Democrats leading by seven percentage points, 50 percent to 43 percent, among likely voters. That's down from a nine-percentage point lead last month. That slightly narrowing reflects rising interest in the election from the foundation of Trump's support: White men, especially older, less educated, less affluent ones in small towns and rural areas. Most noteworthy for a mid-term election, the 2018 campaign...

    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.

    CNBC "News" ^ | July 16, 2018 | John Harwood
    Trump faces political and legal jeopardy from the Justice Department investigation of his 2016 campaign and Russia. Against that backdrop, comments that Republican Sen. Ben Sasse called “bizarre” make sense: Trump spoke most emphatically in discrediting the Mueller investigation. Former CIA Director John Brennan condemned Trump’s words as “nothing short of treasonous.” Others, in less provocative terms, joined in harsh denunciations. President Trump’s stunning news conference with Vladimir Putin becomes understandable once you recognize that he was advancing his personal interests, not those of the United States.

    GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander told CNBC that he will vote again for an amnesty, even though his vote for the Democratic-led 2013 amnesty bill helped demolish his establishment GOP peers during the 2016 primaries and election. “We need a legal immigration system, and we need to put that behind us,” he told CNBC’s John Harwood. “We tried to do it in 2013; I voted for it. It would’ve solved many of the problems … I would vote for it again.”

    So what sort of fringe crazies are still clutching to Russia Russia Russia? Well, apparently, Keith Olbermann is grasping at completely laughable straws in the desperate hope that it will soon lead to Trump's departure. He so badly needs it that his promotion of that conspiracy theory, that even Jake Tapper seems to have backed away from it, could best be described as Resignation Porn. Here is Olbermann's August 22 'Resistance' video in which he feigns certainty that Trump's resignation is just around the corner:So what sort of fringe crazies are still clutching to Russia Russia Russia?

    John Harwood is the CNBC journalist who advised Hillary’s campaign on how to handle Ben Carson and later bragged to Hillary campaign chairman John Podesta about the rude questions he posed to Donald Trump during a debate. Harwood's attacks on Republican candidates as a moderator of a Republican primary debate were met with near-universal mockery. . . . Harwood claimed that Republicans are “radically opposed to government itself” and asserted that “governing is about taking action to solve people’s problems.” View the video here.

    More than at any time in memory, the United States faces a choice this fall between unpopular presidential candidates. Most voters view Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump with disdain. Yet one popular politician looms over the contest. That’s President Obama, who this spring has seen his approval rating again creep past 50 percent. For Democrats hoping to hold the White House, that has come at just the right time.

    Last Friday Nicholas Fondacaro presented us with Hillary Clinton's unintentionally hilarious response to a John Harwood email question by claiming, "“I've been the most transparent public official in modern times, as far as I know.” However, when one checks the CNBC page "16 questions for Hillary Clinton," both the question and the laughable answer are gone despite the fact that it was the most notable thing to come out of the interview. Weird but things get even weirder when we check the transcript for another email question that Harwood seems to reluctantly ask. The transcript edited out portions of Harwood's...

    It was like a mother trying to lead her naughty son through an apology . . . Last week, Joe Scarborough predicted he would "get in trouble" for calling John Harwood's biased performance as debate moderator "embarrassing." On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski tried, in what seemed perhaps to be a pre-arranged mea culpa, to force Joe to say "I really respect everyone I work with." Joe didn't play along with the script but did ultimately mutter "of course I do" before quickly moving on. So was this something the MSNBC suits cooked up? Had Joe agreed to mouth the...

    So CNBC's John Harwood is not only unashamed of his disgracefully biased moderating of the GOP debate, he's doubling down -- entrenched as a five-year-old boy guarding his Halloween candy. After the debate he tweeted, "GOP debate in 2015 enriched my understanding of challenges @SpeakerBoehner has faced and @RepPaulRyan will face." I assume he was not speaking complimentarily of these "challenges." In an interview, Harwood insisted he was justified in asking Donald Trump if his campaign was a comic-book version of a presidential campaign. "There is no one on that stage," said Harwood, "who actually believes you can send those...

    People will argue about which Republican presidential candidate came out on top in Wednesday night’s CNBC debate in Boulder, Colorado, but it was pretty clear who lost. The mainstream media—as represented by the business cable network’s principal moderators, Carl Quintanilla, Becky Quick, and especially John Harwood—took it on the chin as candidate after candidate, to hearty applause from the partisan audience at the University of Colorado, pointed out that their questions were inaccurate, unfair, or otherwise plain silly.
