  • Scarborough: “We all Know” Trump Being “Blackmailed” by Putin

    07/17/2018 3:59:57 AM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 82 replies
    Speak for yourself, Joe . . . On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough claimed “we all know” that President Trump is being “blackmailed” by Vladimir Putin. Here’s Scarborough: “Donald Trump sat there, and was obsequious to Vladimir Putin . . . We all know that Vladimir Putin is holding something over Donald Trump. We do not know what it is. But we know it must be something extraordinary, because no rational politician, no rational president would act this way if he weren’t being blackmailed on some level . . . I know that even Donald Trump supporters know by this...

    Sounding like Elizabeth Warren and other Dems with their eyes on 2020, Joe Scarborough is claiming that President Trump chose Brett Kavanaugh as his SCOTUS nominee for the basest of reasons: “to protect himself” from prosecution. On today’s Morning Joe, referring to a 2009 law review article Kavanaugh wrote in which he suggested that presidents be shielded from civil and criminal litigation while in office, Scarborough said: “There is no doubt . . . make no mistake of it, this is the reason . . . that’s why he has selected Judge Kavanaugh, because of this, single, 2009 article ....

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused President Donald Trump of forcing the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for the headlines. “Proving once again that only fools rush in, Trump forced a summit for cheap headlines,” Scarborough wrote. He added: “In the process, he gave legitimacy to the most oppressive communist regime on the planet, further damaged the United States and made himself look like a fool.” He also included a link to a Washington Post article that read, in part: “In a sharp signal that denuclearization negotiations with North Korea will be drawn out and difficult,...

    MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski comment on President Trump mocking John McCain and George H.W. Bush to the delight of crowds at his rallies: JOE: Mika, we can talk about Donald Trump. We have. But, again, at what point is there decency in the crowd where people stop cheering when he mocks a man who has brain cancer and who is -- again, fighting for his life? A losing struggle for his life. Or George H.W. Bush. A man who fought in World War II. Was shot down by the Japanese, served America overseas as ambassador...
  • Morning Joe: By Turning on Trump, Michael Cohen Would Become "Hero," Trump's "John Dean"

    In its everlasting quest to bring down President Trump, the MSM’s latest best hope is Michael Cohen. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Cohen said that he puts “my wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will. I put family and country first.” Trump foes are taking that to imply that, rather than being willing to take the proverbial bullet for Trump, Cohen is considering turning against the President. On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, speaking with Emily Jane Fox, biographer of the Trump children, suggested that Cohen could become Trump’s “John Dean,” the Nixon...

    Get the hook! Joe Scarborough needs to find a new shtick. His routine of endlessly repeating a given word to make his point is wearing–very–thin. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough’s word ‘o the day was “unhinged.” Have a look at my YouTube mash-up. By my count, Scarborough used “unhinged” 21 times during the opening segment to denounce House Republicans and President Trump.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Sumter Item ^ | June 27, 2018 | Bernard Goldberg
    If progressives hate Donald Trump so much, why are they trying so hard to get him re-elected? They may believe, with justification, that Donald Trump is vulgar and mean-spirited. They may think he acts more like a bully in middle school than a president. They may be convinced, based on the evidence before them, that he's impulsive and dishonest. But he's not a Nazi, no matter how many times they say he is. And he's not Adolf Hitler, despite what their fevered imagination keeps telling them. Now we have not some anonymous leftist at a street rally but a former...

    Offended by Maxine Waters’ call for Trump haters to “harass” members of his administration? Joe Scarborough says you’re a “snowflake.” Scarborough used that s-word four times in little more than a minute during Morning Joe‘s opening segment today: “Yesterday we saw supporters of Donald Trump melt like precious snowflakes in the Arizona sun because Maxine Waters said some things . . . I do wonder how relatives of mine, and friends of mine, will melt like the biggest, most precious snowflake . . . My friends and relatives, who are such delicate, precious snowflakes . . .

    Over the weekend, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter and suggested the Trump administration was “banning” the American Red Cross from tending to the kids separated from their families at the border. After the Red Cross clarified what was going on, Scarborough’s Trump Derangement Syndrome flared up and he accused the international relief charity of shilling for the President.Scarborough’s deranged accusations started after the American Red Cross tweeted out a link on Friday (June 22) highlighting organizations mobilizing to help the immigrants detained. “We share everyone's concern about the border situation and stand ready to help.

    No. 7 on that internet list of Signs Your Engagement is in Trouble: “she refuses to hold your hand in public.” Okay, I made that one up, but there was an awkward and perhaps telling moment on today’s Morning Joe.

What are you doing?”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Cable news: 22 Comparisons of Immigration Policy to the Holocaust, Slavery

    Newsbusters ^ | June 18, 2018 | Bill D'Agostino
    The pundit class have officially snapped over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy. Since Friday, the collective breakdown has yielded a total of 22 instances in which cable news commentators compared the separation of parents and children illegally entering the country to World War II-era war crimes and human rights violations. The Holocaust was invoked 12 times across CNN and MSNBC between June 15 and the 18th, generally in the form of comparisons between DHS detention centers and Nazi concentration camps. There were also six mentions of Japanese-American internment camps, as well as four comparisons to slavery. On Friday,...

    Want to accuse the Trump admin of being a bunch of Nazis? All you need is a tweet by a Boston Globe reporter passing along what “a public defender in McAllen [TX] says.” On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said: “I know that children are being marched away to showers . . . being told they are, just like the Nazis said they were taking people to showers and then they never came back.” Scarborough was referring to the handling of children brought into the country by people accused of illegal immigration. So, how does Scarborough “know” that children are...

    The faces on Morning Joe today were almost as glum as the morning after Hillary Clinton lost. It’s tough for liberals to admit that President Trump pulled off something historic. So give Joe Scarborough a modicum of credit. As painful as it surely was for him to praise President Trump, Scarborough said: “I’ve got to admit, when I see these two people shaking hands, I feel a sense of relief, as do a lot of people in Washington, knowing how bleak the situation was six months ago.” Scarborough also acknowledged that American voters are “going to look at the front...
  • MSNBC’s Heilemann: Samantha Bee’s C-word “Not on Same Scale” as Roseanne’s Racism

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    There has been an outpouring of conservative condemnation of Roseanne for her racist comment about Valerie Jarrett. But the left-wing media is largely rallying around Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump the c-word. Take the Daily Beast, where Amy Zimmerman dismissed Bee’s attack as merely “cussing” and “naughty words,” claiming that to compare it with Roseanne’s tweet is “the false equivalency to end all false equivalencies.” Along similar lines, on today’s Morning Joe MSNBC analyst John Heilemann argued that the punishment for Bee shouldn’t be as harsh as the show cancellation that Roseanne promptly suffered. Heilemann: “In the scale of...

    The Republican Party’s dance with President Trump has long been marked by fits and starts. And for much of that troubled relationship, it has been hard to grasp why so many conservatives would sell their political souls to a man who wallows in racist stereotypes, questions federal judges’ legitimacy, flogs the free press, undermines Madison’s constitutional norms, declares war on America’s intelligence community, and attacks Justice Department and FBI leaders he appointed for refusing to kill special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation. SNIP Even after his calling for a Muslim ban in 2015, professing ignorance of former Ku Klux...
  • Sanctimonious 'Morning Joe' Crew Goes Full Religion to Blast Trump

    Newsbusters ^ | May 27, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Liberals love to lecture us about not mixing politics with religion. Apparently this holds true for them except when they can use religion to blast conservatives and President Donald Trump. Especially Trump. Such was the case on Thursday's Morning Joe, which sounded more like Holy Joe, when they used heavy dollops of religious imagery to slam Trump to the extent that it was suggested that you are committing idolatry if you even dare to support him. Holy Joe Scarborough set the tone by reading from an E.J. Dionne column which also shamelessly used religion as a basis to criticize Trump. He...

    Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “Jesus says love, because hate destroys the hater as well as the hated.” On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough gave us a glimpse of just how corrosive hate can be. As the show was going to a break, a visibly angry Scarborough, reacting to recent criticism of the show’s one-note Trump-hating samba, railed at his own audience: “If you’re thinking: it’s just one note. Morning Joe is just one note. Yeah! Yeah, guess what? A fire department has one focus when there’s a four-alarm fire. All right? So if you don’t want to hear...

    Psst! Hey Jon Meacham! Haven't you gotten the liberal message that you are not supposed to mention impeachment (for now) in case the Democrats win back the House this November? Perhaps historian and failed Newsweek editor Meacham is so eager for that impeachment that he just couldn't hold back on Monday's Morning Joe. They were discussing the horror of  President Donald Trump wanting the DOJ to investigate intelligence agencies spying on his 2016 presidential campaign which led to Meacham eagerly invoking the I-word that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer prefer to not be mentioned (for now).  If you earn a...
