    MSNBC host Joy Reid and guest Elie Mystal on Saturday openly connived about the best way to "get to" Trump. They concluded that it would be to "go after" Ivanka. Gloated Mystal: "this is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . . The only way we're really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids . . . And this [going after Ivanka] could be the way to do it." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    When you apologize for using a term that you yourself call "vulgar, crass and offensive," wouldn't you include in your apology the person against whom you used it? Apparently not, if you're Mika Brzezinski, and the person you insulted is a prominent conservative. Returning to Morning Joe today after a day off for "a family matter," Mika Brzezinski apologized for having on Wednesday's show called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a "butt boy." NewsBusters editor Scott Whitlock reported the slur here. But whereas Brzezinski apologized "especially to the LGBT community" and to her colleagues, she didn't apologize . . ....

    President Trump lashed out at Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ for using a homophobic slur to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Brzezinski, in a discussion about Pompeo’s recent interview with ‘Fox & Friends,’said on Wednesday: “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care…But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now? Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox and Friends, is that a patriot speaking, or a wannabe dictator’s buttboy?” Trump reacted via Twitter on Thursday: “If it was a Conservative that said what ‘crazed’ Mika Brzezinski stated on her show yesterday, using...

    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski apologized Wednesday for a remark she made on air that drew criticism for its homophobic implications. During a segment on "Morning Joe," Brzezinski blasted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his response to the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Pompeo had appeared on the Fox News morning show "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday to talk about a range of topics, including the terror attack in France and U.S. border security. In the sit-down interview, he evaded the hosts' questions about Khashoggi's murder and cast doubt on evidence that said Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed...

    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski had to apologize for what some perceived to be a homophobic joke on Morning Joe Wednesday. Brzezinski called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was “wannabe dictator’s butt-boy.” “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care, Heilemann makes a good point, he doesn’t care. But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” Mika Brzezinski said of Pompeo’s response to a question about the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi.

    MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski is apologizing after she used a homophobic remark to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Wednesday morning on "Morning Joe." Brzezinski was speaking about Pompeo's interview on cable news rival "Fox & Friends," where the secretary of State reiterated that while the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was a "tragic incident" that America doesn't approve of, the Saudis are still "an important ally" of the United States. "I understand that Donald Trump doesn't care … But why doesn't Mike Pompeo care right now?" Brzezinski asked during an interview with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). "Are the...

    Turning on the tube this morning, you had to wonder whether you were actually watching Morning Joe, or a rerun of Saturday Night Live's satire of Mika Brzezinski's histrionics on the show. The doubt arose because Mika gave an exceptionally emotional performance that seemed like a virtual parody of the parody. As others spoke, Mika interrupted with excited yells.

    What they call "cable news" these days often is a repetitive exercise in speculating that the worst for Donald Trump is always right around the corner. On Monday, the doomsaying ghouls of Morning Joe reveled in Trump's troubles, prematurely dancing on the President's political grave. But not even the prospect of Trump being hounded from office satisfied them. No, they gleefully predicted that even as an ex-President, Donald Trump would be beset with problems "for the rest of his life." [snip] Donny Deutsch then delivered the coup de un-grace, proclaiming that the President's current predicament is: "Just the beginning. This...

    In November 2016, when then-President-elect Trump was assembling his cabinet, we noted Mika Brzezinski trying to derail President Trump's possible pick of Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State by hinting that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump. Mika was back at her not-so-subtle intimations about Rudy's imbibing on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on what could be seen as criticisms of the President that Giuliani had made in an interview with The Atlantic, Mika twice wondered out loud about "what time" Giuliani had made his comments. As an explanation of Rudy's candid tone, Mika twice suggested...

    You wish the liberal media would have shown 1/10th the respect for George H.W. Bush in life as it is doing now that he has died. Morning Joe exemplified that this morning, as Joe, Mika and Jon Meacham each offered emotional tributes to the 41st President—while making invidious comparisons with the current occupant of the Oval Office. But emotion aside, there was one interesting fact that emerged. Joe Scarborough revealed, and Mika Brzezinski confirmed, that Mika's father, the late Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security adviser to Jimmy Carter, voted for George H.W. Bush. And that was the one and only time...

    Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California announced on Saturday that she will make a decision about whether she will launch a presidential bid in 2020 by the end of this year. “It’s a very serious decision,” Harris told “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski during an onstage conversation at the Know Your Value conference in San Francisco. “Over the holiday, I will make that decision with my family.” Harris, whose husband joined her in the audience, said she is keenly aware of the challenges a barrier-breaking campaign will entail. “Let’s be honest. It’s going to be ugly,” Harris said. “When you...

    FULL TITLE: Newsweek Publishes Propaganda From Actual SPY Attempting to Gain Support for Prosecution of Julian Assange Newsweek isn’t even being discreet about their embrace of outright Deep State propaganda anymore. On Saturday, the increasingly-irrelevant outlet published an article from actual intelligence agency spy Naveed Jamali, in which he attempts to gain support for the prosecution of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. “Like many current and former members of the intelligence community, I’ve been frustrated by the unwillingness of our government to act against Assange and Wikileaks,” Jamali admits in his ranting article. Caitlin Johnstone reports: “Jamali is currently a reserve...

    "It's getting to the point, where I'm no fun anymore." -- Suite: Judy Blue Eyes Morning Joe might consider adopting the Crosby, Stills & Nash hit as its theme song. Because a show that in the not-that-distant past was at times entertaining and even insightful has been reduced to nothing but an utterly predictable, and hence boring, Trump-trolling mess. On Morning Joe, every day is Groundhog Day. But instead of Cher belting out "I Got You Babe," it's the panel singing the same—old—song, which might be entitled "We Hate Trump." Take this morning—which could have been any morning—in which the...

    Joe Scarborough: Nancy Pelosi fanboy. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough scolded Democrats seeking to prevent Pelosi from becoming Speaker. Joe repeatedly praised Pelosi as highly "competent," and analogized her to Alex Cora, manager of the World Series-winning Red Sox. Scarborough said that dumping Pelosi: "would really be like the Red Sox asking if they were going to keep Alex Cora or not . . . Why get rid of your Alex Cora after a championship season?"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Upset over President Trump firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is organizing mass marches. The protests are slated for today at 5 PM. “It’s happening,” she wrote online. “This is a ‘break the glass in case of emergency’ plan to protect the Mueller investigation.” “We knew this would happen at some point,” she added. “The day has arrived.” Maddow posted the messages to her Twitter account, which has 9.54 million followers. The marches are being sponsored by Indivisible.org, a liberal activist group made up of former congressional staffers. The group is demanding Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker disclaim...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Seems like there is a lesson to be learned in here somewhere. – So, lessee here…the pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona, Doug Ducey, easily won his race by more than 150,000 votes. Meanwhile, the Trump-avoiding GOP senatorial candidate, Martha McSally, who basically campaigned as the second coming of despicable RINO Jeff Flake, lost her race by about 48,000 votes at the latest count. Hmmmm. How do we explain that? Think maybe there’s a cause and effect kind of thing going on there? Nah, must be something else, because your fake news...

Fifty-four percent of Democrats view Republicans as “ignorant,” with 49 percent of Republicans similarly viewing Democrats. Fifty percent of Republicans cast Democrats as “evil,” with 44 percent of Democrats doing the same with Republicans.

    Some in the news media are dismissing President Trump's claim of fraud in Florida's election, even after two judges have found impropriety with the process in specific parts of the state. CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza on Monday called claims of corruption and “fraud” by Trump and Republicans “baseless” and said that they “tell us about how [Trump] will approach his own re-election race in 2020.” His colleague John Avlon on Monday morning called on Florida to “count the votes. Don’t demonize the process.” Trump returned Sunday from a weekend trip to Europe, but his mind was at least in...
