    Former White House political strategist Karl Rove warned Senate Republicans in a meeting this week not to become overly reliant on their conservative base as they head into what could be a tough 2020 presidential election. Rove, who served as former President George W. Bush’s top political strategist, was brought in by Senate GOP leaders to speak to the 22 Republican incumbents up for reelection at an all-day planning session Thursday hosted at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, D.C. GOP lawmakers are getting nervous about next year’s election as polls show President Trump’s approval rating dropping during the 28-day government...

    Keep Hope Alive! Back when The Wall Stree Journal's James Taranto wrote the paper's 'Best of the Web' column, one of his rubrics was 'Diagram this Sentence,' in which readers were challenged to deconstruct a long and confusing line from a [usually] liberal author. On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley offered a prime example of the genre. Responding to the refutation by the Mueller team of Buzzfeed's report that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie about Russia collusion, Wiley said: "In this case, it doesn't mean, what we are hearing in this, does not mean...

    C'mon, Joe, Mika & Co.—quit the giggling, middle-school worthy gossip, and put your cards on the table. As we noted here and here, for over two years now Morning Joe has been broadly hinting that Rudy Giuliani has a drinking problem. The show was back at it today, with Willie Geist, Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, and Katty Kay all unsubtly suggesting that Rudy had been drinking before his CNN interview with Chris Cuomo last night.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Martin Demands White Panelist Not Invoke MLK; She Pushes Back HARD

    On Sunday's MSNBC Live with Alex Witt, after panelist Jennifer Grossman invoked Martin Luther King's historic "content of their character" statement, TV One journalist Roland Martin, in a demanding tone, requested a "favor": "Please don’t quote Dr. King." Apparently in Martin's world, only a black person like him can quote King, while a white person like Grossman can't. To her credit, Grossman pushed back hard: "I will quote Dr. Martin Luther king every single day and you won’t stop me."

    MSNBC continues to maintain its red wall of silence on Joy Reid. But the ugliness just keeps rising. The old blog posts by the progressive personality reek of every bigotry that the left claims to condemn. And, as Bre Payton at the Federalist notes, there's even a call to ethnically cleanse Jews from Israel. Iran's pres strikes again Says "move Israel to Europe" "You believe the Jews were oppressed, why should the Palestinian Muslims have to pay the price? You oppressed them, so give a part of Europe to the Zionist regime so they can establish any government they want....

    Since January 1, neither CNN nor MSNBC has booked a single “Angel Mom” — mothers of children brutally murdered by illegal aliens — as guests on their networks, per an analysis conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC). The RNC told Breitbart News it has tracked both networks since the beginning of the year as they intensely bash President Donald Trump over the government shutdown that is now the longest ever in the history of the United States. Since the turn of the year to 2019 from 2018, neither network has conducted a single interview with any family members of...
  • Here’s a Priceless Clip of MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch Panicking Because Trump’s Winning on Shutdown

    Conservative Tribune ^ | Januray 11, 2019 | Bryan Chai
    As the ongoing partial government shutdown trudges on, Trump is only digging his heels in further as he fights to secure the country’s borders. Most Democrats, who have staunchly held onto their open borders rhetoric, almost seem eager to let this nonsense drag on as long as possible, government workers be damned. But there is a growing belief among leftists and Democrats that their steadfastness may be playing right into the deal-making hands of the president. Watching that grim reality dawn on them has beep utterly priceless. Take, for instance, liberal Donny Deutsch visibly losing his mind on camera on...

    Mika Brzezinski framed it as a "worry," but her statement can also be seen as giving advice [unintentionally, one would hope] to America's enemies, encouraging them to seize the current moment to act against us. On today's Morning Joe, Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic imagined America's adversaries being confused by Trump's unpredictable behavior. [snip] MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I would take it a step further and worry we look weak, and that this is the moment that anybody with ill will has to act, or to get further than they have been able to get in the past, as it pertains to...

    Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," slammed President Trump, invoking the apocalypse to say his administration is doomed and could cause a wave of political instability across the globe. “This is a rogue president, and the question is at this point, what in the world can Congress do, should Congress do?” Scarborough said in a Christmas Eve segment, when he agreed with a Washington Post column describing the Trump administration as "a rogue presidency." Within the editorial, retired four-star Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey wrote: “This is a rogue presidency.” Scarborough then declared that the Trump administration “is terminal. This...

    In the clip, Scarborough makes comments about welfare that would be called racist today. The second half of the clip is from MSNBC, where he says Trump and his supporters are using racism in the 2018 Election, and it's hard not to judge people who vote Republican.

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    It's one thing for Joe Scarborough to criticize President Trump regarding various controversies. But when Scarborough brazenly boasts about the "Obama recovery," and thanks President Obama for it, you know that the former Republican has gone all-in with the Democrats. Playing off the recent drop on Wall Street, Morning Joe opened today by mocking Trump for his positive comments on the market back in August. Fine. But Scarborough then took things a servile step further, declaring: "This tax cut that was passed, was promised, actually, pump the prime [sic] and, you know, we're going to put another $1 trillion or...

Gloated Mystal: "this is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . . The only way we're really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids . . .

    When you apologize for using a term that you yourself call "vulgar, crass and offensive," wouldn't you include in your apology the person against whom you used it? Apparently not, if you're Mika Brzezinski, and the person you insulted is a prominent conservative. Returning to Morning Joe today after a day off for "a family matter," Mika Brzezinski apologized for having on Wednesday's show called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a "butt boy." NewsBusters editor Scott Whitlock reported the slur here. But whereas Brzezinski apologized "especially to the LGBT community" and to her colleagues, she didn't apologize . . ....

    President Trump lashed out at Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ for using a homophobic slur to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Brzezinski, in a discussion about Pompeo’s recent interview with ‘Fox & Friends,’said on Wednesday: “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care…But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now? Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox and Friends, is that a patriot speaking, or a wannabe dictator’s buttboy?” Trump reacted via Twitter on Thursday: “If it was a Conservative that said what ‘crazed’ Mika Brzezinski stated on her show yesterday, using...

    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski apologized Wednesday for a remark she made on air that drew criticism for its homophobic implications. During a segment on "Morning Joe," Brzezinski blasted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his response to the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Pompeo had appeared on the Fox News morning show "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday to talk about a range of topics, including the terror attack in France and U.S. border security. In the sit-down interview, he evaded the hosts' questions about Khashoggi's murder and cast doubt on evidence that said Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed...

Brzezinski called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was “wannabe dictator’s butt-boy.” “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care, Heilemann makes a good point, he doesn’t care. But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” Mika Brzezinski said of Pompeo’s response to a question about the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi.

    MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski is apologizing after she used a homophobic remark to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Wednesday morning on "Morning Joe." Brzezinski was speaking about Pompeo's interview on cable news rival "Fox & Friends," where the secretary of State reiterated that while the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was a "tragic incident" that America doesn't approve of, the Saudis are still "an important ally" of the United States. "I understand that Donald Trump doesn't care … But why doesn't Mike Pompeo care right now?" Brzezinski asked during an interview with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). "Are the...

    Turning on the tube this morning, you had to wonder whether you were actually watching Morning Joe, or a rerun of Saturday Night Live's satire of Mika Brzezinski's histrionics on the show. The doubt arose because Mika gave an exceptionally emotional performance that seemed like a virtual parody of the parody. As others spoke, Mika interrupted with excited yells.
