    MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson accused President Trump of racism Wednesday night in his analysis of Trump's reaction to the alleged murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of agents of the Saudi government. For good measure, Johnson has suggested that Trump is an admirer of murderers. Appearing on Ari Melber's MSNBC show The Beat, Johnson imagined President Trump stating that, concerning Khashoggi: "I don't care, it was a brown journalist."
  • Joe Scarborough Explains Why He Doesn't Think Trump Will Run for Re-Election (Unbelievable)

    "He'll get money from the Saudis. He'll make money from Putin when he gets out — that's why he's been Putin's lapdog. Donald Trump is all about money," the 'Morning Joe' co-host said on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.' MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough has a bold political prediction: he doesn't think President Donald Trump will run for re-election in 2020. "I don't think Donald Trump's going to run for re-election. He didn't want to be elected president, he didn't think he would be elected president. He didn't even think he was going to get the Republican nomination....
  • MSNBC Analyst Defends Warren, Suggests Cherokee Nation is Racist

    10/18/2018 9:48:33 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 60 replies
    Desperate to defend Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s disastrous political stunt of taking a DNA test to try to prove Native American heritage, late Thursday morning, MSNBC Political Analyst and SiriusXM Director of Progressive Programming Zerlina Maxwell actually insinuated that the Cherokee Nation was racist, following their statement condemning Warren. Noting that Warren “long claimed that she’s part Cherokee,” anchor Craig Melvin cited: “Cherokee Nation, Secretary of State Cherokee Nation, said in a statement, ‘DNA testing cannot prove that Warren is Cherokee or any other tribe.’” The host asked: “Do we think that the decision itself was a mistake? Do we...

    Too little, too late. Still . . . On today’s Morning Joe, in the context of discussing the Lewinsky affair and related matters, Mika Brzezinski said: “I think the days of sort of tiptoeing around the Clintons are over. And I’m fine with it.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Todd prefaced his comments this way: “I want to play a quick montage. Beto O'Rourke, the Bobby Kennedy of millenials, decided to go negative.” . . CBS in early October hyped O’Rourke as a “rising star.” Sadly for journalists, the “rising star” is now losing by an average of seven points. Over on MSNBC, Wednesday, Eddie Glaude Jr predicted an O’Rourke victory, adding, “If not, then I'll just reach for my Jamieson bottle.”

    Commenting on how Democrats can strengthen their party by effectively targeting Trump administration policies they oppose, Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said liberals must "fight in the courts, fight in the streets" and "fight at the ballot box." On Tuesday morning's Morning Joe (MSNBC), co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, "So, broad question about the future of the Democratic Party, especially given your firsthand experience with what we've all been through. There's so much going on here that we clearly see, you know, places where you -- we can criticize what the administration is doing, but how does the party rebuild? How do...

    Donald Trump is responsible for all manner of things, particularly if you ask anyone at MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times or the Washington Post. He’s caused unrest around the world using nothing more than tweets, sparked riots in the streets and I’m pretty sure at least a couple of people have blamed him for global warming. But perhaps his greatest trick of all has been to increase the rates of alcohol consumption in America. Or at least that’s the opinion of WaPo columnist Kathleen Parker. Amid hurricanes, a vanished journalist, the recent Supreme Court hearings, midterms and “mobs,” it...

    Hey there, Democrat Senators Feinstein, Booker, Harris, Blumenthal, et al. Hope you enjoyed your time in the limelight during the Kavanaugh hearings. But sadly, dear Spartacus & Friends, the time has come to pay the bills—at the polls. On Morning Joe—notoriously no fan of things Republican—there was consensus today that the Kavanaugh hearings have provided a "huge bump" for the GOP, while amounting to a "disaster" for the Dems. The comments came after polling maven Steve Kornacki reported that Republicans have moved ahead in four key Senate races: Tennessee, Texas, Nevada, and Arizona. Get the rest of the story and...

    Fox News maintained its position as “King of Cable” last week during the dramatic confirmation hearings and subsequent vote for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Fox crushed rivals CNN and MSNBC in all demographics. Nielsen Media Research reports that, from October 1 through October 7, Fox News more than doubled the viewership of CNN and MSNBC in total viewers for both primetime and total daily viewers. Hannity was the most watched cable show in the country averaging 4.4 million total viewers. Tucker Carlson Tonight and Ingraham Angle both clocked in with 3.7 million viewers. Ultimately, a total of five Fox...

    Republican congressman Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has to be one of the best-informed, well-spoken, reasonable, fairly non-partisan Members of Congress. So when Royce appeared on today’s Morning Joe to discuss the latest atrocity in Syria, in which the Assad regime barrel-bombed an aid convoy, he was initially given respectful “Mr. Chairman” treatment, until . . . Royce had the audacity, responding to Andrea Mitchell question about Donald Trump’s “embrace of Vladimir Putin,” to refer to Hillary Clinton’s failed “Russian reset.” That set Mika Brzezinski off. After an “oh, wow” of incredulity, Mika demanded “can we...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday challenged media to investigate how the Democrats handled Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Scarborough argued Ford’s “unsubstantiated allegations” that leaked would “most likely not have made print” five or 10 years ago. “What New York Times reporter, what Washington Post reporter was assigned a story by their editors to go see what really happened with Dianne Feinstein, and asked Dianne Feinstein and her staff the sort of questions that would have happened if the Republican Party had done the same thing. Not one,” stated Scarborough. He...

    Back in August, we caught Joe Scarborough predicting that President Trump won't seek re-election in 2020. Scarborough stuck to that problematic prognostication this morning in offering an explanation for Nikki Haley's resignation as UN Ambassador. Joe conjectured that Haley is positioning herself to run in 2020—and to get out in front of Mike Pence—after Trump decides not to run. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    After Brett Kavanaugh was smeared as a gang rapist, after Feinstein's last-minute machinations, after having to endure lectures from Richard Blumenthal--Richard Blumenthal!--about "integrity," can you begrudge Republicans some celebration over the Kavanaugh confirmation? Yes--if you're the cast of Morning Joe. Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.

    Imagine a conservative saying on MSNBC that female Dem senators were being "so emotional, almost hysterical....behaving as if it's their time of the month." Does anyone doubt that said conservative would be forcibly escorted off the set? Yet on Ari Melber's MSNBC show The Beat Thursday night, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, speaking of Republican senators who had spoken out on the Kavanaugh confirmation, said: "First of all, I just want to comment on that appearance by those senators today. They are so emotional, almost hysterical. I mean, I would make a joke about it, that they're behaving as if...

    Mediaite ^ | October 3,2018 | Colby Hall
    Joe Scarborough may have publicly left the Republican party, but he still very often takes the same conservative approach to the news of the day. This was on full display this morning has he slammed what he sees as biased media coverage of embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, whose confirmation is in question after numerous sexual misconduct allegations from over three decades ago have come to light. “The media coverage of this has been so one-sided, it has been so biased,” Scarborough claimed, adding the media’s “presumption from the beginning has been that every single allegation made against the...

    Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski envision possibly four more years of Trump in 2020 — just not Donald Trump. “Ivanka Trump Is going to run for president,” Brzezinski declared during an on-stage conversation with editor David Remnick on opening night of the New Yorker Festival. Remnick did a double-take, asking them to explain the theory. “He’s got this obsession with positioning her,” Brzezinski said. “You can pull up her Instagram and she’s got these carefully composed sizzle reels, ,,, She’s going to all of the companies–” Scarborough interjected, “Giving speeches in front of the presidential seal.” He...

Because that is the number of times that we have noted the Joe Scarborough/Mika Brzezinski duo being fair to Brett Kavanaugh.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 9/24/18 | Becket Adams
    Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, has covered herself in shame these last couple of weeks. Her desire to see Brett Kavanaugh's chances of replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy destroyed by any means necessary has been a sickening display of petty, short-sighted partisan zealotry. But there is one unintentionally humorous moment in the parade of awful that has vomited forth from the senator’s office: The moment this week when she attacked the GOP for supposedly behaving like ... Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.? Republicans “cannot face the idea that women do not sit around making these things up,” Hirono said Monday on...

    Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware predicted Monday that Republicans will “almost certainly” have to resort to the “nuclear” option to approve the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. Mr. Coons, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which held four days of hearings on the Gorsuch nomination, doesn’t envision Democrats crossing party lines to vote in favor of President Trump’s nominee. “He will get an up or down vote. Sen. Schumer, our minority leader, has said it is going to be a 60-vote margin, and I doubt he is going to get 60 votes. The question...

    What's gotten into Joe Scarborough? A modicum of fairness, we're tempted to say. Last week, Joe expressed surprising support for Republicans moving ahead on a Kavanaugh vote. This week, he said liberal media members accusing Kavanaugh of rape should have a (D) before their names. And now today, Joe expressed real skepticism about the claims of Julie Swetnick, the Michael Avenatti client: [snip] "Who would continually go to high school parties where women were being gang-raped--and first of all keep going to those parties--and secondly, not report that to some authorities, and third, not have somebody at all of those...
