    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...

    Has Joe Scarborough been hanging out with Jerry Nadler, the man who would chair impeachment hearings when the Dems take over the House? Or does Joe perhaps have a source inside the Mueller investigation? The questions arise because on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough described President Trump as:"a man who may not be in the White House for another year."Scarborough's stunning suggestion came in the context of his condemnation of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for "lying" to Congress regarding Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Scarborough's point was—given that President Trump could soon...

    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...

    All you need to know about Shep Smith: Mika Brzezinski loves him. On today’s Morning Joe, introducing a clip of Smith, Mika said: “love him.” When the clip concluded, an adoring Mika added: “thank God for him.” In the clip, from Fox News of yesterday, Smith: blasted President Trump’s suggestion that Robert Mueller is meddling in the midterm elections; asserted that there is no “Russia witch-hunt;” and said that there is “no evidence” to support Trump’s claim that federal officials spied on his campaign with an informant.

    "Morning Joe" lovebirds Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski wed last Saturday in a private ceremony at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. They apparently pulled some strings to secure the location. Like, just about breaking federal law. It was the first time a wedding ceremony had been held in that spot since the building opened in 1935. Brzezinski told Vanity Fair that the couple chose the hallowed American location after attending a previous event there, saying, “It makes sense now more than ever, given what we stand for as a couple, what we do for a living, and what we’re worried...

    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...

"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."

    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...

    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.

    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...
  • [Remember When] Obama uses power of appointment, sidestepping Senate

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
