    Appearing on MSNBC Thursday morning to defend Democrat Stacey Abrams’ refusal to concede the race for governor in Georgia and hurl accusations of voter suppression against Republican Brian Kemp, Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo touted support from disgraced former CBS News anchor Dan Rather and MSNBC’s own Joe Scarborough. . . "GROH-WARGO: And that is a very clear effort really exposing these issues. Because here’s the deal, whatever happens with our campaign, we’ve got to fix the system here in Georgia."
  • 'Pathetic...Caged Animal': Morning Joe Reduced to Sorry Mess of Trump Trolling

    "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...

    As you'll see in the mashup, Morning Joe taunted President Trump today with a barrage of insults, casting the election results as a huge loss for the President, and depicting him as "freaked-out, weak, battered, confused." In the unkindest cut, Joe Scarborough sneeringly claimed: "He thinks he's going to stop his children, if they've done something wrong, from going to jail? They'll just be in state jail [instead of federal jail.]"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

  • MSNBC and CNN Love Good Republican Loser McSally, Hate Rick Scott

    Are you a Republican candidate? Want to win lavish praise from the liberal media? Easy! Get into a cliff-hanging election result, and instead of fighting it out, concede gracefully to your Dem opponent. As you'll see in the video clip, MSNBC's Morning Joe and CNN's New Day offered a perfect illustration of the phenomenon today. Both shows heaped praise on Republican Martha McSally for quickly and "gracefully" conceding to Dem Kyrsten Sinema in their Senate race in Arizona. In contrast, the two shows castigated Republican Rick Scott for fighting it out in Florida. But wait a second: MSNBC/CNN's point was...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    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...

    A majority of Democrats — 61 percent — describe Republicans as “racist, “bigoted,” and “sexist,” according to a Monday-published poll commissioned by Axios. Thirty-one percent of Republicans describe Democrats the same way. The online poll surveyed 3,215 U.S. adults, and has a margin of error of three percentage points. 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.

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 12, 2018 03:00 PM | Eddie Scarry
    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...

    Here is a math question that even most Common Core students could easiliy answer: Which is a greater number, 40 or 63? The answer is all too obvious...unless you have a political agenda. And one such person is Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski. Her Mika math was on full display on November 12 when she angrily asserted that it is "laughable" that the 2018 Democrat House seat gain of up to 40 seats is not as bad as the 63 seat GOP gain in 2010 during the Barack Obama administration. Watch Mika pretending four fingers is the same as five, or rather that...
  • [Remember When] Obama uses power of appointment, sidestepping Senate

    11/09/2018 12:15:07 AM PST · by Yosemitest · 18 replies
    President Obama is sidestepping the Senate to directly fill the No. 2 position at the Justice Department and appoint four U.S. ambassadors whose nominations had been stalled or blocked by lawmakers for months. The White House on Wednesday said Mr. Obama is using a recess appointment to install James Cole as the deputy attorney general and ... Senators had blocked or refused to consider the confirmations of the nominees for various reasons, including questions about their qualifications. ... Recess appointments are made when the Senate is not in session and last only until the end of the next session...

    Such a magnanimous guy, that Joe Scarborough. He doesn't usually judge his friends, no matter how they vote. But not this year. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said that not judging friends is "a little harder to do in 2018." A Scarborough tweet that was displayed made clear what Joe had in mind: anyone voting for "Trump" [i.e., for Republicans] is voting for "lies," and "racism."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

On today's Morning Joe, reacting to some recent polls showing positive movement for the Missouri Dem, Brzezinski openly rooted: "come on, Claire!" A bit later, Mika gave free rein to her amour-McCaskill, saying "I'm obsessed with her. I love her."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Under normal circumstances, Republicans would be poised to lose Tuesday’s midterm elections by a landslide. History says dozens of seats in the House of Representatives flip in the first midterm of a new presidential administration. But history is a guide, not a rule. And current the circumstances of the country are anything but normal. I’m not talking about President Donald Trump and his Twitter account, though that certainly is outside the usual. I’m talking about what it is the opposition party is offering and the idea that some people, perhaps enough to flip the House, might take it considering...

    Don't worry, be happy, about a caravan of 14,000 people marching toward our southern border. Nothing to fret about. That was Joe Scarborough's line on today's Morning Joe. Trying to shrug off the threat, Scarborough sniffed that the caravan "doesn't really affect" the people concerned about it, and then claimed: "That April caravan, where Trump and Fox News said thousands and thousands of people were invading. It ended up like 11 people and a hound dog."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Joe Scarborough thought he was being so cute. No fewer than six times during his little spiel on today's Morning Joe, while reading from the US government's WWII psychological profile of Adolf Hitler, Scarborough stressed that he was not intending to refer to anyone else. Joe never uttered the President's name, but coming from this world-class Trump hater, there was no doubt what parallel he wanted viewers to draw. "This is referencing nobody." "Do not draw a parallel between what is said here and anybody, living or dead, past or present." "This doesn't relate to anybody whatsoever." "This only pertains...

    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."
