Skip to comments.Morning Joe: “Cynical Politics” Behind Dem Ousting of Al Franken
Posted on 12/07/2017 5:07:51 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
The likes of Kirsten Gillibrand parade themselves as paragons of avenging feminist virtue in calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign. But the Morning Joe crew sees another motive behind the Democrats move to force Franken out: cynical politics.
Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, and Willie Geist all made similar points: the move to defenestrate Franken is really about Democrats trying to give themselves the high ground on the issue of sexual misconduct. The Dems real target is Roy Moore.

Watching the likes of Kirsten Gillibrand preen and parade as avenging angels of feminist virtue makes me ill.
We all know what this is really about for the Dems — getting Roy Moore, and ultimately, President Trump.
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
Says the man with the dead intern...
It’s ALL a lead up to trying to take down Trump this way next year.
Weinstein, Franken, etc. are all worth throwing to the wolves to get the country into an uproar and then have a zillion women accuse Trump of blah blah next year.
Only problem is the country doesn’t give a ####.
More concerned with silly things like mortgage and food.
One of the few salient points they have ever made...
They are eating their own and whiffing on Republicans.
...simply the “enablers” trying to
seem truly concerned. The media never
had a conscious when it came to RATS
and their own. It’s just more fake news
STOP THE PRESS!
Joe & Mika Didn’t Blame The Latest Political Outrage On President Trump!!!!!
Are they going soft?
Are they losing their touch?
Has Soros stopped sending the monthly checks?
This is correct. This is an easy one for the democrats. Remove Franken and replace him with another Democrat that can win the special election next year. Democrats can claim they remove their deviants, while the Republicans do not. Every GOP candidate in 2018 will be defined as being part of the Roy Moore party. It is going to be a long year for Republicans.
“Well, at least no dead girls have been found in Franken’s office...”
At least none that we have heard about.
Sorry. Joe has no credibility anymore.
This is a symptom of the Progressives loss of control over the narrative.
For decades, they controlled the narrative with the establishment media. The alternate media now has enough power to break the dominance of the establishment, Progressive, media.
Without the ability to control the narrative, Progressives are resorting to desparation tactics like getting rid of Franken and Conyers without due process.
Of course, they have never believed in due process, so to them it seems completely normal.
But to most people, throwing Franken under the bus, while it may be satisfying, has nothing to do with voting for Roy Moore.
Essentially the Progressives are saying, see, we threw Franken off the cliff, so you should throw Moore off the cliff as well! See! see!
But Conservative voters have other sources of information. They do not find the establishment media persuasive any longer.
Well said. And the same applies to Conyers, of course. Odds of a Republican winning his seat are precisely zero. So Dems sacrifice nothing in pushing out the senile Conyers.
Why is it that people see this “joe morning” person as some sort of “guru” on what is right and wrong, what is “American”.
He’s just another Lauer, living in sin with Mika and espousing liberal talking points.
His only quest in life seems to be to bash Trump.
Stop posting about this idiot...he is dirt.
...Well,at least no dead girls have been found in Frankens office....
MoJoe must be a Lurker here. Freepers have been observing and commenting on this obvious leftist tactic for weeks.
I hear you. I do think Joe has lost his grip in his hatred of Trump.
I used to enjoy the show, but find it almost unwatchable nowadays. But I dipped in this morning, and was pleasantly surprised by this segment.
I’m sure they’ll get back to apocalyptic Trump-bashing in due course today.
Its ALL a lead up to trying to take down Trump this way next year.
