    Imagine what would ensue if someone on TV suggested that the Democrats were a party of "ignorant" women, or non-white people. Such a person would be forcibly defenestrated for racism/sexism before you could say "Roseanne Barr." But when it comes to white men, all's fair and unobjectionable. And so it was on today's Morning Joe that Donny Deutsch, discussing the Republicans' handling of the Kavanaugh confirmation, said: "You're seeing on display a metaphor of, like, what this party is, and just basically, just ignorant white men."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Role reversal on today's Morning Joe? Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch took a hard line on Brett Kavanaugh. But Mika Brzezinski suggested that the statute of limitations serve as a guide to dealing with the accusations, and warned Dems against playing "dirty" on the Kavanaugh confirmation. [snip] Donny Deutsch took it a dramatic step further, declaring: "I believe Kavanaugh is dead at this point. I would be shocked if he was ever a Supreme Court Justice."

  • Joe Scarborough: Trump Has Been Keeping Promises

    Joe Scarborough has been so opposed to President Donald Trump (as opposed to when he boosted Trump for president) that he even smeared him a few days ago with the absurd claim that Trump is a graver threat  to the American dream than the 9/11 terrorists. Therefore it was quite surprising that on Friday's Morning Joe show, while in Mississippi observing the attitudes of voters in that state toward Trump, that Scarborough said something about Trump that was so upbeat positive that the soundbite could actually be used in one of his  2020 re-election campaign commercials. Was this an accidental admission by Scarborough, via...

    There is truly nothing sacred anymore. Not awards shows. Not sporting events. Not John McCain’s funeral. Not even 9/11. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has declared that President Trump is a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It all began with a tweet to a column he wrote in The Washington Post on the eve of 9/11. “Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could,” Scarborough tweeted....

    During Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough reacted to the highest amount of women ever being nominated for governor and House seats in November’s mid-term elections, declaring women to be the potential downfall of the GOP majority because President Donald Trump has “offended” and thus “activated” them. “I wonder if … mainstream conservatives in the age of Trump are going to underperform...That seems to be the overarching headline of all of these results (Note: from Tuesday's election results) — that women have not just been offended by Donald Trump, but they have been activated to such a level...

    Former President Obama deserves more credit for the strong U.S. economy than President Trump, according to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough. "Yeah, it's a strong economy," Scarborough told "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski. "But Mika, this is not an economy that Donald Trump gave us. This is an economy that's part of the seven year ongoing recovery." Scarborough also said this "isn't the greatest economy ever" and that it "isn't close to the greatest economy ever." "Barack Obama had more people getting jobs his last 16 or 18 months than they had jobs during Donald Trump's first 16 or 18 months," he...

    In an opinion piece published in the Washington Post on Monday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough claims that President Donald Trump poses a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the September 11 attacks. Joshua Caplan of Breitbart breaks it down: "Scarborough’s piece, titled “Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could,” begins with the virulent Trump critic chronicling various foreign policy blunders committed by previous White Houses following the fateful terror attacks on September 11, 2001. The culmination of such “tragic lessons” — including then-President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq without...

    When it comes to condemning all things Trump-related, there’s rarely any daylight between Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. They are monolithically, some might say maniacally, united in their condemnation of The Donald. [snip] Scarborough accused Kavanaugh of having a “cold, callous heart” for failing to shake Fred Guttenberg’s hand, dismissing any innocent explanations of the moment. But Brzezinski gave Kavanaugh the benefit of the doubt, saying “no, I think his security people [intervened],” and “I just don’t” think his heart is that cold.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    According to various mainstream media figures this week, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was all but certain to drop a bombshell Friday that would shake Washington, D.C., to its core. It didn’t happen. NBC’s Meet the Press host Chuck Todd on Thursday kicked off the Mueller “bombshell” frenzy, warning viewers that Friday could go down in history as a turning point in the Russia investigation. “Here’s what I’ve learned about Bob Mueller,” Todd began. “Not a single person that has known him, been with him, worked with him, wouldn’t say that he would have ended this investigation if there was no...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/31/2018 | Brian C. Joondeph
    With Senator John McCain's recent passing, the Trump-McCain feud has heated up. It's really a manufactured kerfuffle, as one party is saying little, and the other party has departed from the living, no longer able to participate in the feud, except posthumously via the media. Leave it to the media to resurrect the controversy between the late senator and the U.S. president as a means of bashing President Trump, whom the media detest. It is also a distraction from the stock market breaking records left and right, a new and better trade deal with Mexico, a country that the media...

And I think you’re going to see the press embracing a lot of these candidates on the far left.” Joe being Joe, he had to balance that with a shot at the president, adding, “you’re going to have Donald Trump race-baiting all the way to the fall.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    If calling constituents concerned about illegal immigration "crazies" is a term of endearment, what would be an insult? On today's Morning Joe, John McCain refused to apologize to the thousands of Arizonans attending a Trump rally that McCain called "crazies." According to McCain, "crazies" is a "term of endearment" and a "term of affection."

    RUSH: How many are you are aware that Barack Hussein O was in Boston over the weekend and made a private speech, an off-the-record speech? Did you hear about this? MIT’s Sloan Sports Analytics Conference invited Obama to come make a speech, reflections on his presidency and thoughts on other things. And the command went out that Obama’s speech was to be off-the-record, that nobody but nobody was to record it. Nobody but nobody was to report it! Even though they invited journalists in there, nobody was supposed to leak it. Nobody was supposed to say a word about what...

    On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said: "On a serious note . . . let's move beyond this fall. And if Donald Trump decides to run for re-election, and actually, count me as one of the few people who don't believe he will. But if Donald Trump does decide to run for re-election, that's when Americans take a serious look at whoever's sitting in the Oval Office and they ask, does he or she have the leadership qualities that we need to run America?"

    Talk about blowing yourself up! That’s what New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo did yesterday by saying, “America was never that great.” He went on: “We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.” You can hear Cuomo for yourself in the video above. That is a ready-made ad for Republicans if he should ever run for President! Even the “Morning Joe” crew was astounded. They mocked Cuomo for being so dumb as to say this. But you know what – this is what many on the Left believe but are not honest enough to...

    Results from the Ohio special election on Tuesday support the idea that the GOP is becoming a rural party that could face problems in winning over suburban voters his fall, "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough opined on Wednesday. "This is a party, the Republican Party, that's becoming more and more every day a rural party," the former GOP congressman, a frequent critic of President Trump, said on his morning MSNBC show. GOP candidate Troy Balderson holds a narrow lead in the special election race for a House seat, but the result is close enough that it could trigger a recount...

    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.
