  • Scarborough Puts Insults to Trump in Mouth of his Aides: “Bumpkin, Idiot, Pre-Dementia”

    I’m getting close to pulling the plug on Morning Joe and Joe Scarborough. On countless occasions over the years, readers have asked: why do you bother watching this guy? Who cares what he says? Why give him any additional exposure? etc. I’ve always responded along the lines that Morning Joe is the most-watched morning show among opinion leaders. And Joe and his guests would fairly often have interesting things to say. [snip] This morning offers yet one more example. Instead of directly insulting the Trump, Scarborough puts his insults in the mouth or minds of the president’s staffers. Over the...
  • Mayor de Blasio questions President Trump's sanity after physical exam results

    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...

    Donny Deutsch was last to speak during the opening segment of today’s Morning Joe. But from the clenched expression on his face, you just knew that he was loaded for bear. And sure enough, finally given his chance to comment on President Trump’s “s—hole” remark, Deutsch unloaded: “There’s a word we have to start to use with Donald Trump in addition to all the ‘crazy’ talk we have . . . He’s an evil man. We don’t talk about that a lot. We talk about he’s insane, and he’s crazy, and he’s this. That’s evil. This is just an evil,...
  • Vanity - Elected Democrats silent on Michael Wolff book. Media goes wild destroying themselves

    01/07/2018 7:46:30 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 33 replies
    Amazing...isn't it. very few, if any Democrat elected politicians have anything to say about the just released Michael Wolff book. Meanwhile the nutcase Democrat, Hate Trump, left-wing, Media is having a field day ranting about a no dividend paying "Trump Lie Telling fest". Why? The "Wolff" tome is pure political poison for any elected politician, Republican, Democrat or otherwise, it is as simple as that. Democrats hate Trump...but, they are not that stupid to know that embracing this farce of a book by insane Michael Wolff is a sure ticket to never being elected again. Case closed.
  • Michael Wolff on Trump—”Every Time You Speak to Him, You Think: This is a Wingnut”

    It’s not exactly breaking news that Michael Wolff believes that Donald Trump is unfit to be President of the United States. That’s the entire thrust of his “Fire and Fury.” But appearing on Morning Joe today, Wolff used a colorful phrase in describing Trump, one that epitomized his low opinion the man. Asked by Joe Scarborough whether Trump was “mentally fit” to be president, Wolff responded: “Every time you speak to him, you think: this is a wingnut. There is something really alarming in ways that you cannot even begin to describe. It’s like you’re riveted to the seat.” Get...

    In spite of growing evidence that Michael Wolff’s explosive new book Fire and Fury should not be treated as the epitome of truthful and accurate reporting, Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson are still keeping the faith and treating it as the Holy Grail of recording the true story behind the internal workings of the Trump administration. At one point early in the second hour of Friday’s Morning Joe, Robinson professed his conviction that “every page [of Wolff’s book] really rings true, doesn’t it Joe,” to which Scarborough replied: “It does. It really does.” Joe...

    In the wake of the immense political conflagration that Michael Wolff’s upcoming book Fire and Fury has caused, Thursday’s Morning Joe was almost entirely consumed by discussion of all its salacious claims and their implications for the Trump White House. Even though multiple guest panelists on the show admitted to the shaky factual foundation for Wolff’s book and the unproven nature of many of his assertions, they nevertheless largely treated his testament as gospel. Much of Morning Joe’s coverage focused on dissecting the purported comments of Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. However, co-host...

    New Year’s Eve fireworks are over, but things were still exploding on the Morning Joe set today. Namely, the collective heads of the panel members. An episode of mass hysteria broke out over President Trump’s tweet that warned Kim Jong Un, in response to his threat, that Trump has a “much bigger and more powerful” button than Kim’s, and that “my button works.” First up was Mike Barnicle, who fretted over Trump’s “stability.” Next was John Heilemann, describing Trump as “demented and deranged.” Not to be outdone, Jon Meacham diagnosed Trump with a “narcissistic disorder,” while calling for an “intervention“—a...

    A guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” oddly declared Friday that she is worried President Trump may try to invalidate the 2018 midterm elections to avoid a Democratic Congress --- something the President can’t actually do. Regular co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were absent, but Republican pollster and Washington Examiner columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson more than made up for the extreme anti-Trump rhetoric that MSNBC viewers have come to expect from the liberal morning show. Soltis Anderson said she is worried that if Republicans face large losses in 2018, President Trump will fear having a Democratic Congress that may begin...

    Even The Huffington Post cannot let the down-ballot gutting of the Democrats go unnoticed. Senior politics editor Sam Stein was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday, where he said that while Obama was re-elected twice proving himself to be an excellent candidate—his party has suffered catastrophic losses during his presidency. In all, the Democrats have lost 1,030 seats at the state and federal level, a wipeout of at least a generation of Democratic talent. Stein added that with such a political butcher’s bill, you have to ask whether this man was good for Democrats (via The Hill):

    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...

    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...

    Morning Joe opened today’s show by insisting that Steve Bannon had insulted Alabama when he suggested that University of Alabama alum Joe Scarborough, unlike Bannon, couldn’t get into Georgetown or Harvard. If that was an insult to Alabama, it was something of a three-rail bank shot. But a bit later, Morning Joe aired a clip of Roy Moore foe Charles Barkley insulting Alabamians in the most explicit terms. Said Barkley: “At some point, we’ve got to stop looking like idiots to the nation.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    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.

    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...
  • Morning Joe: “Cynical Politics” Behind Dem Ousting of Al Franken

    The likes of Kirsten Gillibrand parade themselves as paragons of avenging feminist virtue in calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign. But the Morning Joe crew sees another motive behind the Democrat’s move to force Franken out: “cynical politics.” Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, and Willie Geist all made similar points: the move to defenestrate Franken is really about Democrats trying to give themselves the high ground on the issue of sexual misconduct. The Dems’ real target is Roy Moore. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said on Thursday that people close to President Trump told him during the campaign that Trump has "early stages of dementia." During MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Scarborough said Trump is "completely detached from reality." "You have somebody inside the White House that the New York Daily News says is mentally unfit," Scarborough said.

    President Trump dredged up a notorious old mystery with his latest bomb at NBC, citing the bizarre death 16 years ago of a young female staffer in the office of then-congressman and current “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough. The story of Lori Klausutis has dogged Scarborough on the Internet since she was found dead in his Florida district office on July 19, 2001. Although Scarborough was out of town — and the medical examiner later ruled she had died after falling and hitting her head on a desk — conspiracy theorists have long speculated, with no reliable evidence, that Scarborough...
  • 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...
