    For months Morning Joe has offered up a steady stream of apocalyptic condemnation of President Trump: his mental health has been explicitly questioned and comments on Charlottesville were blistered, with one panelist calling on his aides to resign en masse or be “forever tainted with the stench.” Just last week, Mika Brzezinski was calling Trump “unhinged,” claiming she couldn’t distinguish between Trump and Kim Jong Un. All of which makes the praise for President Trump on today’s show all the more remarkable. Joe Scarborough led off by observing that “everywhere I’ve gone, people have been talking about Donald Trump’s sort...

    Joe Scarborough took an I-told-you-so victory lap on today’s Morning Joe. In the wake of President Trump cutting a deal with Pelosi and Schumer, the show aired a prepared montage of Joe, going back almost a year, predicting that Trump would wind up working with Dems, with whom, according to Scarborough, he feels more comfortable. When the montage ended, an admiring Mika Brzezinski said, “your gut had it from the get-go. And it’s really fun to watch.” View the video here.

    There was an extended conversation on today’s Morning Joe as to whether Kim Jong Un could be deterred. The discussion centered around the question of whether Kim is a rational actor. There was absolutely no ambiguity. The panel was discussing Kim’s rationality or lack thereof. Sample statement: John Heilemann asked what Mattis, Tillerson, and McMaster “think about the rationality of this North Korean leader?” But that did not, ahem, deter Mika Brzezinski from saying, in her most serious and somber tone: “When you talk about the rationality of the leaders . . . I honestly did not know which leader...

    In a pair of tweets Wednesday, Brzezinski said the president’s “both sides” reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, “created a permissive climate for violence.” She suggested that “blood and carnage” will be on the president’s hands and the president’s cabinet and staff will have that same blood on their hands unless they “speak out, step down or act decisively.”
  • Morning Joe: Trump Transcript Leak Could Be “A Set Up” by White House to Damage Press

    Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are suggesting that the Trump White House might be behind the leak of the transcripts of President Trump’s conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia. On today’s Morning Joe, Joe and Mika floated the notion that while the leaks might have been mildly embarrassing to the president, they were “really damaging to the press.” In support of their theory on who was behind the leaking, the pair pointed to the fact that when the Washington Post informed the White House that they had the transcripts, Trump administration officials did not ask the paper not...

    Is Mika Brzezinski predicting that President Trump won't serve out his term? Sounds like it, judging by her observation on today's Morning Joe. "If you are losing Republicans every step of the way because you've proved to be not trustworthy, and you've failed them miserably on health care . . . [and] undermining someone who's been incredibly loyal to you . . . isn't he playing the person who ends up getting fired on The Apprentice, instead of being the person who says "you're fired?"

    Knowingly or not, Mika Brzezinski has exposed the progressive strategy for ever-increasing government control of our lives. On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough actually made a principled conservative case against Obamacare, saying that many conservatives “do not believe that the federal government should compel people to buy insurance. Should not compel young people to buy health insurance if they do not want to buy health insurance.” Mika responded saying that she understood Joe’s point about “sticking to conservative principles,” acknowledging that “many Republicans were deeply offended by the concept of Obamacare.” But Brzezinski then proceeded to give away the liberal...

    Mika Brzezinski was doing her best on today’s Morning Joe to undermine the just-released statement by Jared Kushner on his dealings with the Russians. But when Mika tried to tee up former FBI agent Clint Watts to take a shot at the statement, she got what must have come as an unpleasant surprise. Mika put it to Watts that the Kushner statement, rather than explaining away dealings with the Russians, “raise[s] questions.” But instead of taking Mika’s hint, Watts replied: “I think Kushner’s statement is good. That we get this sort of transparency. And I believe his account of things.”View...

    The president has a huge impact on the country’s political culture. Trump’s misuse of the bully pulpit ensures that that impact is negative in his case. So, he did it again. As we’ve learned countless times since his inauguration, President Trump is the exact same person as celebrity Trump and candidate Trump. He’s crass, vicious, and petty. This morning, he tweeted this: Read more at:

    President Trump ignited a firestorm on Thursday morning when he tweeted a scathing attack on “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski — and it’s not going unnoticed by Hollywood. In a series of vicious tweets Thursday morning, Trump wrote, “I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!” For her part, Brzezinski did respond on Thursday morning… in her own...

    Alleged facelift, I should say. It’d be a fun postscript to this own-goal if the president of the United States got sued by a cable-news host for defamation.As nasty and stupid as it is for him to sink to this, increasingly I think it’s the least he can do for his base. We may not get a decent health-care bill or tax reform or stronger borders but we’ll have plenty of sick media burns to look back on when we reflect on the Trump years. This panem et circenses is the best panem et circenses, believe me: I heard...

    How to become an MSM hero? Publicly confront the Trump administration. At yesterday’s White House briefing, Playboy White House correspondent Brian Karem got into a testy exchange with Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over CNN’s fake Russia story and the broader issues involved. Appearing on Morning Joe today, Karem received a hero’s welcome. As he was introduced, someone exclaimed “well done!” and there was even a smattering of applause. At the end of the segment, after Karem pleaded for the media to “stand up” to the Trump admin, Mika Brzezinski concluded, “and stand with you. Brian Karem: amen—to everything...

    For months, we’ve been chronicling Joe Scarborough’s increasingly anti-Trump statements. As Morning Joe host Scarborough called the president a “schmuck” and a “jackass,” and repeatedly questioned the president’s mental health, as here and here. Scarborough now appears to have hit rock-bottom [excuse the pun], with his release of a music video portraying Joe with co-host and fiancée Mika Brzezinski observing a nightmarish anti-Trump mash-up.

    Is there anything more embarrassing than a 50+ year old’s mid-life crisis?  And who wouldn’t want to listen to a 50-something with hair from the 50’s autotune his way through a Trump bashing original song?  Answer: No. Take Joe Scarborough for example - the ex-congressman current MSNBC talking head. He tackles the really important things in life: playing in a rock band, cutting an EP, “Mystified” and making a really cool video singing an edgy song bashing…that’s right,TRUMP! How clever is that? In one scene from the video, a disillusioned and disinterested Brzezinski and Scarborough stare emotionless as a nuclear...

    One of our categories here at Legal Insurrection is “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” Over at Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski provides a prime example of the malady. We noted yesterday how Mika was pushing poor Jon Meacham into drawing parallels between President Trump, the Nazis, and North Korea. Brzezinski ratcheted things up a notch this morning, suddenly blurting out that it “feels like a dictatorship developing.” Joe Scarborough tried to talk his partner off the ledge, saying “that’s an inside voice saying what you just said. You want to be like Greta. Greta pulls back before she says things like that.” View...

    On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski strongly suggested that President Trump is in cahoots with the Russians, saying “it’s kind of hard not to think that [Trump] might be in on some sort of scheme.” Earlier, Mika recycled the Trump/Nazi card. She invited Jon Meacham to draw a historical parallel to President Trump. When she asked him “what this is reminiscent of if you had to make a parallel,” Meacham drew the comparison to President Nixon at the end of his tenure. That wasn’t what Mika was looking for, so she tried again: “what is this reminiscent to, even outside...

    Yes, let’s all come together, hold hands, unite . . . and blame President Trump for the shooting of Steve Scalise and others yesterday. Morning Joe opened today with predictable pieties, Joe Scarborough saying, for example, that “the heated rhetoric in this country has to calm down.” But before the show’s first hour had ended, Mika Brzezinski turned the heat up to 11 by pointing the finger for the Scalise shooting in part at the president. An emotional Mika, after accusing President Trump of “promoting violence on the campaign trail,” continued: “I’m not putting anything squarely on the president, but...
