MSNBC's Martin Bashir 'on vacation' after Sarah Palin remarks

Martin Bashir, the MSNBC host who has come under fire for the controversial remarks he made about Sarah Palin, is "on vacation" and will not host his namesake afternoon program on Monday, POLITICO has learned.

Sources at the network said Bashir had been temporarily suspended from the network following graphic remarks he made last month about the former governor from Alaska. In that segment, Bashir suggested that Palin should be forced to endure slavery like conditions, including the consumption of feces.

MSNBC spokesperson Lauren Skowronski told a different story: "He’s still out on vacation," she wrote in an email. Asked multiple times when Bashir would return from vacation, Skowronski did not respond.

Way to go Sarah.

His remarks were completely unprofessional and should be unacceptable to any network and he should have been fired.  But since he works for MSNBC, he's probably on a fully company paid for vacation in the Carribean until this right-wing haters tirade blows over.

With or without pay?

anyone that watches msnbc in the first place needs a lobotomy. They are the most hateful and misinforming news cast in the world and no one with even 1/2 a brain would believe them. OH" I forgot about the Obama lovers. 

Don't you mean anyone who watches MSNBC already has a lobotomy?

We need to call him and Ed Schultz to be fired. Both are disgusting with their foul language and Gallo.g for be to die. They have shouted out hate, foul language, slander and said awful things about people that they dont like. We need to get them off air once and for all.

Make it a nice long one, unpaid!  Oh, and Martin, Go back where you came from you are an unprincipled pig and your English accent embarrasses me, I am a real Englishman, we just do not behave that way, as, of course you would know had you been raised with any class whatsoever. Get back on the street media whore! 

This "vacation" should be permanent, and it should be in moslemland with a 100 foot high wall around it to keep the likes of him inside. And, oh, let the moslems pay him.

He is disgusting. The fact that a lady had to demand his apology is beyond comprehension. Our press is out of control and we of the Tea Party need to be behind Sarah and demand that there is no more bias in news reporting. If we do not - then she is on the battlefront by herself.....and she is probably wondering why.

DO NOT - DO NOT - DO NOT WATCH NBC, CBS, ABC OR PBS news!!! Watch ONLY Fox News. That is the ONLY WAY we can fight this propaganda machine!!! It is the advertisement bucks that will allow coverage of events like Bengazhi BEFORE the elections. We were ruined as a nation by our American press and Sarah is leading the battle. Lets get behind her and quit making her subject to the ridicule of the American press because she had to do this for us!!!!!

I have not watched those stupid creeps in years, precisely because of the problems they cause and the lies they continue to tell. I was sick to death of them insulting my country and my intelligence. Even Fox News doesn't cut it anymore, in my view. They give too much credence to the enemy, even using their words and language to describe things and events. My home page is now CNS News.

GO AWAY , MARTIN AND DONT EVER COME BACK , YOU HEAR ?

Given the principle of psychotherapy that a man's speech is the direct route to his subconscious and a good indicator of the topography of his inner emotional and mental health, I presume the only obvious inference, that Bashir is receiving treatment in a mental institution.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
