    The day after the Florida school shooting, Mika Brzezinski  has warned guests who have been booked to appear on Morning Joe to "go back home" if they believe this is not the time to talk about gun control. Said Brzezinski: "And these real conversations, and the real story of what happened yesterday has to be told. I'm looking at our esteemed list of guests today. And I don't mean to unbook the show. But I'm just going to warn anybody, and everybody, that if anybody comes on this show and says now is not the time to not talk about...

    On Thursday, the panel on MSNBCÂ’s Morning Joe dog piled author Michael Wolff for propagating an unfounded rumor that President Trump had been having an affair with his ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley. The confrontation became so heated that the showÂ’s co-anchor Mika Brzezinski eventually cut the interview short and asked Wolff to leave. Michael Wolff became a media fixation in January upon publishing his anti-Trump book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Following the controversial bookÂ’s release, he appeared on HBOÂ’s Real Time with Bill Maher, where he claimed that President Trump was having an affair....
  • Morning Joe’s Mika Melts Down Over Trump’s Speech And Defaults To Calling Him A ‘Dictator'[VIDEO]

    “Morning Joe’s” Mika Brzezinski was rocked by pollster Frank Luntz after she called President Donald Trump “the great dictator” on MSNBC Wednesday. “Why can’t people give him credit for what has happened?” Luntz asked. “Why can’t they give him credit for his speech that went — that people had a chance to see? If you were a Democrat, there was something there for you. If you’re a Republican, there’s something there for you, that it has specifics.” “I think because he’s literally screwed everybody in that room over a few times too many,” Brzezinski replied. “He’s been vulgar. He’s been...
  • Buchanan & Deutsch: Imprison Pastor To Prevent Koran-Burning

    Talk about your strange bedfellows . . . Both Pat Buchanan and Donny Deutsch have advocated the arrest of Pastor Terry Jones to prevent his possible burning of Korans and the danger to US troops such act would threaten. The paleo-conservative and the New York liberal made common cause on today's Morning Joe. They were outnumbered by Mika Brzezinski, Dan Senor and John Heilemann, all of whom opposed the arrest-the-pastor proposal on First Amendment grounds. Buchanan and Deutsch expressed disregard for the First Amendment implications. Buchanan asserted that if Pres. Obama were to follow his advice, conservatives would support him...

    On Friday, an agitated Donny Deutsch reached the end of his rope on the set of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Deutsch, who appeared deeply affected by a clip of President Trump calling The New York Times “fake news,” eschewed the traditional combination of liberal snark and false superiority characteristic of the show’s other panelists, opting instead to go with unmitigated rage. Deutsch’s rant kicked off with the assertion that Republicans questioning the objectivity of the Mueller investigation were “undermining the FBI and undermining the news.” “Forget the obstruction,” he continued, “forget the actual charge. This continual assault on the things that...

    The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham was a guest on the Wednesday edition of FBN’s Risk and Reward and he didn’t hold back in hammering the liberal media’s persistence that President Trump as mentally ill, telling host Liz MacDonald that they’re no more than “crazy” “Democratic Party hacks.” Graham replied that the NewsBusters newsroom thought the White House press corps’s behavior “was crazy,” adding that “Jeff Flake picked the wrong day to give this speech” comparing Trump to Joseph Stalin “after the press just embarrassed themselves by all asking...a battery of questions refusing to accept the idea that Donald Trump...
  • Mayor de Blasio questions President Trump's sanity after physical exam results

    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ^ | January 17, 2018 | JILLIAN JORGENSEN
    Mayor de Blasio hopes President Trump is “sane,” even if he doesn’t think he’s acting that way. “I hope he is sane,” Hizzoner said when asked about Trump’s physical exam on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “His actions don’t suggest it.” The question from Mika Brzezinski — who Trump has called “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” — came a day after the White House released the results of Trump’s first official physical exam, in which he was found to be in sound physical and mental condition. Despite his concerns, de Blasio noted he was no Freud. “I don’t know, I’m not a psychiatrist...

    Damned if you’re demented, damned if you’re not. No good mental test result goes unpunished. On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski wasn’t taking yes for an answer when it came to the news that President Trump had a perfect score on a cognitive assessment test and that his personal physician found him mentally “very sharp.” To the contrary, said Mika, if Trump doesn’t have the excuse of mental impairment: “You can then deduce other things that are far more nefarious and frightening . . . the word evil comes to mind.” Get the rest of the story and view the...

    Was that actually Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe today, or had someone hacked into the MSNBC feed and inserted a parody bit about elitist, Trump-hating snobs? We’ll look into it. In the meantime, here’s what “Mika” ostensibly said this morning: “I had some friends that went to Paris over the holiday, and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be Americans. They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling. That they didn’t even want to share where they were from.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    During the relatively dead news cycle between Christmas and New Years, most media outlets choose to burn up some space with retrospectives on the year that’s ending. Politico is no exception, and one of their features this week was dedicated to people who had found themselves engaged in Twitter feuds with the President, with an eye toward how well they had “survived” the encounter. They chose to highlight Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, Kathy Griffin, Alan Dershowitz, John Podesta and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Rather than a series of survivor stories, most of these (with one notable exception) seem...

    Well, that didn't take long for her to get her mind right. It only took a few hours from the time Mika Brzezinksi on Friday's Morning Joe criticized the sexual harassment accusers of Mark Halperin for not meeting with him personally to apologizing for it later that afternoon. Seeing your own career starting to slip away can be a powerful incentive for producing an apology. Mika's dramatic U-turn concerning former colleague Halperin was a result of this statement: "Mark Halperin is more than willing to meet with his accusers and apologize with them face-to-face. I've actually tried to offer him...

    Even her fiance figured she must be on something . . . On today’s Morning Joe, during a discussion of how the Obama administration buried any discussion of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign by raising it when the Access Hollywood tape was first made public, Mika Brzezinski suddenly blurted out that Billy Bush: “just laughed while the president grabbed him in the crotch. That happened. Listen to the tape.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Mika Brzezinski’s broadside against President Trump seemed scripted. Even so, on today’s Morning Joe, Mika got emotional as she lashed out at the President for tweeting that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand “would do anything” for a campaign contribution. As she and her Morning Joe cohorts are inclined to do, Mika engaged in some armchair psychoanalysis. Calling him a “sexist pig,” and asserting that he “is obsessed with women” who criticize him, Mika said that Trump “has some special problem with women.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On Friday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show’s hosts and guests spent most of their broadcast mourning the announced resignation of Minnesota Senator Al Franken from Congress in the wake of over half a dozen allegations of sexual assault against him. In a stunning display of hypocrisy, MSNBC’s liberal morning pundits went to extraordinary lengths to cast doubt on the women who have accused Franken of sexual misconduct, violating the network’s own oft-repeated standards for Republican and conservative politicians.New York Times writer Bari Weiss was even brought on to complain about how “some innocent people are going to go down” as...

    Among all the women who have accused all the various men, Leeann Tweeden has pictorial evidence: the infamous photo of Al Franken with his hands over her breasts. So why would Mika Brzezinski single out Tweeden to cast doubt on her veracity? On today’s Morning Joe, Brzezinski said: “We’ve never really talked about the woman who first came out against Al Franken . . . Playboy model who goes on Hannity, who voted for Trump . . . I’m just wondering if all women need to be believed.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Morning Joe: Any Viewer Not Realizing Post-Thanksgiving Show Taped a “Moron”

    Pro marketing tip for Morning Joe: don’t deceive your viewers, and then call them “morons” when they complain about being duped. When news stories were published revealing that the episode of Morning Joe aired this past Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, had been pre-taped, an MSNBC exec made a non-apology apology: “Would it have helped if there was a disclaimer? Maybe. But that’s not typically done.” But on today’s show, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were not in any sort of apologetic mood. To the contrary, Scarborough said “you’d have to be extraordinarily thick” not to realize the show wasn’t...

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” tried to fool viewers into thinking Friday’s pre-taped show was live and host Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski even discussed their Thanksgiving meals – even though the holiday hadn’t occurred yet when they taped the show. Brzezinski opened the show by saying, “Day after Thanksgiving… I’m stuffed,” while Scarborough nervously laughed as if he knew the engaged-to-be-married co-hosts were being dishonest. The opening to the show is still available on MSNBC’s website.

    On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, while discussing President Trump’s remarks to reporters yesterday on the White House lawn, NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt decided to do an impromptu campaign ad for Democratic senatorial candidate Doug Jones, who is Roy Moore’s opponent in the Alabama special election. Part of Hunt’s pitch involved the fact that Jones is best known for prosecuting the perpetrators of the infamous 1963 Birmingham church bombing that killed four black girls. Co-host Mika Brzezinski instantly saw a connection between this piece of information and Trump’s earlier claim to journalists that Jones is “soft on crime.” From...

    Has this been previously reported? If not, it’s something of a bombshell . . . On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski said that, after the election, Ivanka Trump hired someone Brzezinski had “brought to her” as an advisor on “women’s issues.” Mika Brzezinski: the liberal who at the beginning of the 2016 primary season was urging Elizabeth Warren to run. Mika, who when Warren made it clear she wasn’t running, jumped on the Bernie bandwagon. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
