  • Morning Panic: Joe Scarborough Blames Democrat 'Overreach' for Trump's Rising Poll Numbers

    “It’s a heck of a turnaround,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said at the start of “Morning Joe” on Thursday, as he cited President Donald Trump’s rising poll numbers — despite the government shutdown. A Gallup poll conducted Feb. 1-10 shows Trump with 44 percent approval — up from 37 percent in mid-January. “The latest increase in approval is mainly the result of political independents’ improved opinions of Trump,” Gallup noted. Scarborough blamed Democrat “overreach” for boosting Trump, and he urged Democrats to be guided by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who “knows how to beat Donald Trump.” “Democrats can’t afford any more...
  • Scarborough Falsely Accuses Kevin McCarthy of Tweeting 'Don't Let Jews Buy the Election'

    Seeking to deflect criticism of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar for her history of anti-Semitic remarks, Morning Joe swung into whataboutism mode today. Joe Scarborough flagrantly mischaracterized a tweet by GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy prior to the midterms. Scarborough twice claimed that McCarthy had said: "don't let Jews buy the election."McCarthy had said no such thing. McCarthy had tweeted: "We cannot allow Soros, Steyer and Bloomberg to BUY this election. Get out and vote Republican." He never identified the three as Jewish, and it is unlikely that more than a small fraction of Americans would know that they are. In contrast,...
  • Scarborough Warns 2020 Dems: Listen to Trump El Paso Speech and Realize You Have 'Uphill Battle'

    Don't get Joe Scarborough wrong: he detests Donald Trump as much as ever, and will surely do whatever he can to help defeat him in 2020. But in a triumph of realism over desire, on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough warned Democrats that beating Trump won't be easy. As evidence of the daunting task facing Dems hoping to take Trump down, Scarborough urged Dems to listen to the "strong" closing segment of President Trump's speech in El Paso last night. JOE SCARBOROUGH: There was a closing argument, and whoever wrote it, wrote a strong closing argument. And any Democrat that thinks...
  • Scarborough Predicts Warren Native American Problem Gone By Spring

    You got 37 days for it to go away, Joe . . . On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said of Elizabeth Warren's candidacy: "Am I the only person in America who thinks the Native American controversy is something that probably will not last into the spring?" That is wishful thinking turned political prognostication. For Joe to be right, no other shoe can drop. Does Scarborough sincerely think that Warren's Texas bar registration was the only place she put herself down as "American Indian?" Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Memo to Scarborough: GOP has every moral right to ‘lecture’ Democrats on racism because of history

    The National Sentinel ^ | 2/4/19 | Jon Dougherty
    Joe Scarborough, former Republican and host of the little-watched “Morning Joe” program on MSNBC, has to say outrageous things about the GOP because a) he’s pressed upon by his network overlords to dish #NeverTrump manna daily if he wants to keep his penny-ante job; and b) it’s the only way he can generate any press. So on Monday, there he was attempting to provide political cover for his Democratic masters when discussing the latest Donkey Party debacle: A racist photo posted in the medical school yearbook of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam depicting one person in blackface and another in a...

    “Whom did Donald Trump Jr. speak to on his phone in between calls setting up the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians?”ť That is the question the New York Times asked about “one of the more tantalizing mysteries of the whole Russia affair”ť in a glossy report on the campaign. Hundreds of stories referenced the “blocked numbers”ť and speculated that those belonged to President Trump, who wanted an update on collusion efforts from his son. Last year, when asked by Wolf Blitzer of CNN if he was confirming that Trump Jr. phoned his father, House Intelligence Committee member Andre...

    When it comes to having a spokesman for Trump-Hater Nation, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the rest of the loony left must be thrilled. In Joe Scarborough, they have someone who gets three hours of TV time every weekday morning to beam Trump hatred to the masses. Doing his bit on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough sided with Pelosi in proclaiming the wall "immoral."After Scarborough claimed that "no one is saying that any wall is insane," John Podhoretz pointed out: "Pelosi did say that walls are immoral." Replied Scarborough: "Donald Trump's view of a huge, beautiful wall from sea to shining...
  • Burn: Dana Loesch Just Wrecked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Idiotic Tweet About Former Starbucks CEO

    Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz might be running for president. If he does, it’ll be as an independent centrist. Needless to say, this will split the anti-Trump vote and very well could give Trump a second term. That’s why the political Left is hurling hate and vitriol at Schultz, who has also trashed Medicare for All, and other policies pushed by Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Kamala Harris (D-CA), for being un-American. Harris recently said on a CNN town hall that she would gut private health insurance. Schultz thinks Tomahawk Liz’s agenda is nothing but full-blown socialism. The former coffee...

    In yet another example of moral narcissism and the liberal inability to understand conservative positions on faith, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi declared that her party, the Democratic Party, does the will of God while Republicans dishonor their Creator. Of Republicans, the Democrat congresswoman from California declared, ,b>"They pray in church on Sunday and they prey on people the rest of the week. And while we're doing the Lord's work, ministering to the needs of God's creation, they are ignoring those needs which is to dishonor the God who made them." Perhaps emboldened by Pope Francis' encyclical on climate change,...

    "Wishin', and hopin', and thinkin', and prayin'. Plannin', and dreamin', each night." -- Dusty Springfield, Wishin' and Hopin' Looks like Morning Joe has been spinning its old 45 of Dusty Springfield's 1964 hit. But instead of "looking to find love," the MSNBC crew is wishin' and hopin' to find a nasty split between President Trump and congressional Republicans. The media love to create and promote divisions and internecine warfare in the GOP, and then hide it and discourage it among the Democrats. That was the theme of a segment on today's show, with New York Times Washington bureau chief Elisabeth...
  • Without Any Confirmation, MSNBC Promotes Claim Chicago Attackers Wore MAGA Hats

    Empire star Jesse Smollett was brutally attacked early Tuesday morning in Chicago in what police have suggested could be deemed a hate crime due to Smollett being gay and the assailants allegedly hurling homophobic and racist slurs.  However, one such claim that has not yet been substantiated was the notion that the alleged perpetrators either wore Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats or shouted “this is MAGA country” to Smollett as he was beaten, doused in bleach, and had a noose tied around his neck. Despite that, the 1:00 p.m. Eastern edition of MSNBC Live mentioned it anyway. Co-hosts Stephanie Ruhle appropriately called it a“horrible” story and “terrible...

    There has been much wailing and rending of garments over the weekend about the layoffs of some writers, editors, and other staff at BuzzFeed, HuffPost, Yahoo, AOL, and Gannett. Naturally, the affected employees are upset and inclined to blame malign forces beyond their control. Predictably, the primary villain to emerge is President Trump, who had the temerity to tweet that the real problem is the market: “Fake News and bad journalism have caused a big downturn. Sadly, many others will follow. The people want the Truth!” This is not what these unhappy folks want to hear, but Trump is right....

    Monday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she has no proof, but she believes Paul Manafort, who was campaign chairman for Donald Trump from June to August 2016, was planted by Russians. Waters said, “At the center of this question about whether or not the president colluded with Russia or Putin or the oligarchs et cetera is the question of sanctions. We know that Putin wants these sanctions lifted. I’ve said from the beginning that I believe, and I don’t have the proof, but I believe that Manafort was sent to the campaign to be there to...

    Given how Joe Scarborough has vilified Donald Trump for years, the Morning Joe host could be the world's least likely character witness for the President. But ironically, Scarborough's overt animus toward Trump makes him that much more credible when he says something positive about the President—as he did on today's Morning Joe. Scarborough swore that—having known Trump for 12 years—he had never in private heard him utter a racially-insensitive word. "We [gestures toward Mika] saw him for 12 years behind closed doors. Never, ever, once—I'll say under oath, I'll put into an affidavit—never once heard him say anything close to...

    After reports that married MSNBC anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have been mysteriously broadcasting their show from Florida — sources speculated that the location is to benefit Scarborough’s tax situation. The “Morning Joe” anchors have been reportedly on a home set in Jupiter, Fla., but using Washington, DC, backdrops. Sources said the reason for the locale was a “tax dodge” — albeit a completely legal one — since Scarborough has a home in Florida and would need to spend a certain amount of the time there for any tax benefit. “Mika just goes along for the ride,” a source...

    Put Rick Tyler's picture next to "schadenfreude" in the dictionary . . . As news broke during today's Morning Joe that Roger Stone had been arrested and charged with seven counts of obstruction and false statements and witness tampering, Tyler—a former Ted Cruz campaign aide turned MSNBC political analyst—took obvious delight in Stone's predicament: RICK TYLER: Roger Stone, like Donald Trump, is a political con man whose showman shtick has finally caught up with him . . . He's known for dirty tricks, and I think a lifetime of this shtick has finally caught up with him. Get the rest...

    A new excerpt from former White House communications staffer Cliff Sims' new memoir emerged in Vanity Fair, and this one focused on a very special member of President Trump's Team of Vipers: Kellyanne Conway. Sims doesn't appear to be a fan: As I watched Kellyanne in operation over our time in the White House, my view of her sharpened. It became hard to look long at her without getting the sense that she was a cartoon villain brought to life. Her agenda — which was her survival over all others, including the president — became more and more transparent. [Cliff...

    After news came out about mass layoffs at HuffPost, Buzzfeed and Gannett -- in the midst of the media's relentless smear-job against the Covington Catholic students -- right-wing Twitter had a field day. Tons of leftist journalists announced they were laid off on Twitter and the top meme was telling them to "learn to code" -- which is the same advice the media gave middle Americans whose jobs are being taken in traditional industries. Talia Levin, who was hired by Media Matters last year after being fired by the New Yorker for smearing an ICE agent as a Nazi because...

    Former White House political strategist Karl Rove warned Senate Republicans in a meeting this week not to become overly reliant on their conservative base as they head into what could be a tough 2020 presidential election. Rove, who served as former President George W. Bush’s top political strategist, was brought in by Senate GOP leaders to speak to the 22 Republican incumbents up for reelection at an all-day planning session Thursday hosted at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, D.C. GOP lawmakers are getting nervous about next year’s election as polls show President Trump’s approval rating dropping during the 28-day government...
