  • Scarborough: People Who Believe Comey Biased Against Trump Too Stupid for Kitchen Utensils

    Joe Scarborough has made an art form out of sliming President Trump. But, not content to insult the president, Joe’s now turning his Don Ricklesian skills on the people who support Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough mocked as idiots people who believe that James Comey and others in the FBI like Andrew McCabe were biased against Trump during the presidential race. Joe warned Trump supporters to “step away” from kitchen utensils because they are too “incompetent” to use them and will “hurt themselves.” The screencap shows Scarborough imitating a hapless Trump supporter using an egg beater to “trim their...

    In February, Raw Story noted Joe Scarborough transparently trying to bait President Trump into agreeing to an interview with Robert Mueller by saying that the President’s lawyers think he’s “too stupid” to handle such a sit-down. Scarborough, with help from Mika Brzezinski and Donny Deutsch, was back at the Trump-baiting game today. In the opening segment, the trio repeatedly asserted that Trump’s lawyers think the president is “too stupid” to handle Mueller. Adding fuel to the provocation fire, they also suggested that Trump’s education isn’t as good as Mueller’s, and that Trump would be a “coward” and “very submissive” if...
  • Scarborough, Deutsch Beg Cohen to Turn on Trump: Don’t Sacrifice Your Children for Trump’s Children

    This actually came close to the classic line: “nice kids. Wouldn’t wanna see nuthin’ happen to them.” On today’s Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch and Joe Scarborough implored Michael Cohen to turn on President Trump. Deutsch, mentioning that he knows Cohen very well, said that he often tells him: “you’ve got to protect yourself, you’ve got to protect your family.” Scarborough said, “I just can’t imagine that he’s willing to sacrifice the well-being of his children for the well being of Trump’s children.” Replied Deutsch, speaking of his conversations with Cohen: “those words I used exactly.” Get the rest of the...

    Thursday on MSNBC, co-host Joe Scarborough dismissed the idea of actor and former wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a president, arguing he, like President Donald Trump, is as qualified as a “lawn boy.” “That’s like saying you let the lawn boy do brain surgery on your mother. And he was kind of a nasty lawn boy, didn’t know how to do brain surgery and he killed your mother." "But there’s another lawn boy across the street who is nice and has a better way about him when he’s mowing your lawn and collecting payment for mowing your lawn,” Scarborough...
  • Scarborough: SEC Should be “Coming After” Trump for Talking Down Amazon Stock

    Now that the liberal media has apparently hit a dry hole in its effort to make a collusion case against President Trump, the MSM is going to have to get more creative in accusing him of other misdeeds. Joe Scarborough has come up with an innovative idea: charge President Trump with market manipulation for talking down Amazon’s stock price. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough said that President Trump: “lies about [Amazon], causes its stock to go down. I’ve watched enough episodes of Billions to know that if you’ve spread lies about a company or product to cause its stock prices...
  • Charles Krauthammer: U.S. Heading Down Conspiracy Rabbit Hole (2017)

    The other storyline is simply fantastical. Congressional Republicans have uniformly run away from Trump's Obama-wiretap accusation. Clapper denies it. FBI Director James Comey denies it. Not a single member of Trump's own administration is willing to say it's true. Loopier still is to demand that Congress find the truth when the president could just pick up the phone and instruct the FBI, CIA and DNI to declare on the record whether this ever occurred. And if there really was an October 2016 FISA court order to wiretap Trump, the president could unilaterally declassify the information yesterday. The bugging story is...

    Progressive insurance, a major publicly traded company, has decided to pull ads off Laura Ingraham’s radio programs, Breitbart News can confirm. In addition to the news of the decision to pull the ads, Progressive–through an ad placement firm–at least partially defined what qualifies as a reason to pull Progressive ads off the air of a certain program: “Controversial programming.” Even so, despite coining that term for this, Progressive refused to further define what it means by “controversial programming.” A media ad-buying-and-placement firm for Progressive insurance notified radio affiliates on Friday morning to stop airing ads on or near Ingraham’s programming....

    As we reported earlier Thursday, teen demagogue David Hogg has called on his supporters to boycott and pressure companies that advertise on Laura Ingraham’s program in retaliation for her statement regarding news that he has been rejected by four colleges. Here is my response to young Mr. Hogg David, I understand how you must feel after losing 17 of your classmates. As a 10-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps, I know what it’s like to lose comrades and friends in a senseless act of bloody violence. David, I understand how you must feel after losing 17 of your...

    The David Hogg experiment would be captivating if we were all just spectators, but the latest twist in the spectacle reveals a destructive element sure to metastasize quickly. Last Wednesday, Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted, “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA ... totally predictable given acceptance rates.)”

    David Hogg bid a sarcastic farewell to Fox Host Laura Ingraham after she announced she will go on vacation and off air next week. On Friday Ingraham shared on her program she will take a pre-planned break for the Easter holiday with her children, according to Variety. Hogg tweeted 'Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week' echoing Ingraham's own words of apology that she offered after Hogg's boycott saw her lose 11 of her show's advertisers.
  • Donations To The NRA Spiked After The Parkland School Shooting

    The NRA saw a major spike in donations following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The shooting took place in February and left 17 people dead. That same month, NRA donations tripled from the month before. Federal Election Commission filings say the NRA received just under $248,000 in January. It received more than $779,000 in February. The NRA has faced intense scrutiny since the shooting. It's not entirely clear if the donations are part of its supporters' response to that or part of a larger trend. History shows consumers display increased interest in guns and gun sales increase after mass...

    America knows Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students through mainly a handful of pro-gun control activist students, but according to a faculty member of the school where the deadly shooting took place, many other students say the most visible activists do not represent them. “I’ve had some students approach me privately to talk to me about it, but I should note that those student activists none of them were ever in any danger during this whole thing…none of them except for the one girl Samantha Fuentes,” the faculty member said during an interview with NRATV on the condition of anonymity....

    Laura Ingraham is taking a vacation next week. Now the question is whether a controversy swirling around the host will go on hiatus as well. The popular Fox News Channel host – her “Ingraham Angle” was the fourth most-watched cable-news program in February – told viewers Friday night she would not appear on air next week as she took what she described as a pre-planned break around the Easter holiday with her children. Substitute hosts are expected to fill in for her on the program. She leaves in the midst of heightened scrutiny. Ingraham set off an imbroglio Wednesday with...

    Washington Post ^ | March 30, 2018 | Callum Borchers
    Two reasons could explain Laura Ingraham's decision to mock Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg for his college rejections. One is schadenfreude, but it is seems overly cynical to think that the Fox News host takes pleasure in watching more bad things happen to a teenager who lost 14 schoolmates and three educators last month. The other, more plausible reason is that Ingraham wants to remove Hogg from a national conversation about gun control. Rather than debate him, she would prefer to disqualify him.

    On Thursday, Laura Ingraham suddenly apologized for insulting and ridiculing school-shooting survivor David Hogg — but only after she began losing advertisers for her Fox News show and under the threat of losing more. The previous day, Ingraham felt not a twinge of decency when she tweeted an insult about Hogg getting rejections from a number of colleges, sneering that he was whining about it. In response, Hogg called for an advertiser boycott of The Ingraham Angle. By late afternoon, Nestle, Hulu, Wayfair, Johnson & Johnson, Expedia, and TripAdvisor, and others had yanked ads from her show. Laura Ingraham could...

    A 13-year-old running for governor in Vermont is highlighting gun control in his platform. Ethan Sonneborn, who declared his candidacy last year, is calling for stricter gun control in his home state, and told CNN in an interview published Friday that the refreshed national conversation on guns in the aftermath of the Florida school shooting presents a “good opportunity to make change.” “There's always been a sense of, 'We don't talk about that in politics.' That's what I wanted to change," Ethan told CNN. "I wish it didn't take a tragedy for us to become involved in a national dialogue...

Who thinks that attacking children, who thinks that spreading false information about children which has not only been spread on conspiracy sites but also on mainstream media sights, who thinks that is going to help them get ahead politically when it's so obvious it's only going to blow up in their faces?' asked Scarborough. 'Let's add on attacking children who are two weeks out from hiding under their desk or watching their friends be shot by an automatic weapon,' pointed out Deutsch. So if you can't have empathy or sympathetic behavior...

    Why has Morning Joe become such a marathon, anti-Trump mess? A strong hint emerged on today’s show. It seems clear that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are still smarting from insults that Trump aimed at each of them. Mika mentioned that Trump “tweets about me bleeding badly from a facelift, makes a lie that I showed up at Mar-a-Lago bleeding all over the place.” And a bit later, Scarborough mentioned that Trump “suggested that I was a murderer.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
