    The liberal media feigns horror over "lock her up" refrains. But when it comes to a Trump associate actually being locked up in a notoriously awful jail, well, that's a cause for mirth and hilarity. And thus it was that on today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough joked about Paul Manfort being confined at Rikers Island, which has been described as a "hellhole," as here, here, and "the most notorious jail in America."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    (Video at Source) Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” anchor Nicolle Wallace opened her show by saying President Donald Trump a “grievance-obsessed dictator-lover.” Wallace said, “Hi, everyone. It’s 4:00 in Washington, D.C., where Donald Trump just returned to the White House after a tour de farce in Japan. Proving once again you can take the dictator-loving president out of America but you can’t today grievance obsessed dictator-lover out of the American president.

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” host Nicolle Wallace called President Donald Trump “sadistic.” Wallace said, “The Washington Post, out with just some extraordinary reporting on how Donald Trump is micromanaging his border wall’s design. The bollards, or the slats as he prefers to call them, should be painted flat black, a dark hue that would absorb heat in the summer making the metal too hot for climbers to scale. ....She continued, “If any kid in any high school wrote that, they would be sent to the school shrink. I mean, this is sadistic.” She added, “We also know he wants to...

    One day after the visit to the White House by Boston Red Sox players celebrating the team’s 2018 World Series championship, the hosts on Friday’s edition of Morning Joe on MSNBC asserted that if even one player didn’t want to go, the others should have stayed away as well. The strongest comment came from co-host Joe Scarborough, who said no one on the baseball team should have taken part because Donald Trump is “the most racist president certainly in our lifetime.” While discussing what happened on Thursday, the panelists pointed to the fact that Alex Cora -- the team manager...
  • MSNBC’s Chris Matthews slams Trump for aiding Israeli PM Netanyahu’s reelection

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews blasted President Donald Trump for playing the “political sidekick” of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In recent weeks, the Trump administration has recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and declared Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. President Trump also welcomed Netanyahu to the White House in late March. Matthews accused the president of breaking tradition with his predecessors by staying out of Israeli politics, but as Newsbusters pointed out, he overlooked the Obama State Department’s financial contribution of taxpayer money to OneVoice, an Israeli political group and opponent of Netanyahu.

    “It’s a heck of a turnaround,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said at the start of “Morning Joe” on Thursday, as he cited President Donald Trump’s rising poll numbers — despite the government shutdown. A Gallup poll conducted Feb. 1-10 shows Trump with 44 percent approval — up from 37 percent in mid-January. “The latest increase in approval is mainly the result of political independents’ improved opinions of Trump,” Gallup noted. Scarborough blamed Democrat “overreach” for boosting Trump, and he urged Democrats to be guided by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who “knows how to beat Donald Trump.” “Democrats can’t afford any more...

    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...

    Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski envision possibly four more years of Trump in 2020 — just not Donald Trump. “Ivanka Trump Is going to run for president,” Brzezinski declared during an on-stage conversation with editor David Remnick on opening night of the New Yorker Festival. Remnick did a double-take, asking them to explain the theory. “He’s got this obsession with positioning her,” Brzezinski said. “You can pull up her Instagram and she’s got these carefully composed sizzle reels, ,,, She’s going to all of the companies–” Scarborough interjected, “Giving speeches in front of the presidential seal.” He...

    Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) on Tuesday night released documents appearing to show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) diverted nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The documents, first reported by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, detail the agency’s funding redirections for fiscal 2018 and show that millions of dollars were diverted to ICE from several agencies. Those diverted funds, totaling $33.1 million, “will provide funding in support of higher priority detention and removal requirements than those for which originally appropriated,” according to the documents. According to MSNBC, Merkley believes the transfer from...

After the Red Cross clarified what was going on, Scarborough’s Trump Derangement Syndrome flared up and he accused the international relief charity of shilling for the President.Scarborough’s deranged accusations started after the American Red Cross tweeted out a link on Friday (June 22) highlighting organizations mobilizing to help the immigrants detained. “We share everyone's concern about the border situation and stand ready to help.

    Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz opened up in a recent interview about why he believes he was fired in 2015. Schultz, who’s now anchor of a show on RT, told National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein that he believes it was because he supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which was problematic, he charged, because the network was “in the tank for Hillary Clinton.”He described how MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog" who closely managed which stories were covered, and relayed one incident where his story about Sanders’s launch of his campaign was bumped in favor of other news. Sanders gave his official campaign...

    Talk about a facepalm moment. Is it the media’s stupidity or stacking sandbags because they know this National Rifle Association initiative could gain traction? You decide. The NRA wants more armed guards in schools. Teachers should be allowed to carry as well. After the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, the school board voted to approve this proposal. This is not an alien concept. A lot of schools have resource officers; Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the site of the most recent school shooting on February 14, had such officers. They failed to engage the shooter, Nikolas Cruz. Scores of teachers in...

    Days after the Russian indictments were handed down, Jill Stein appeared on MSNBC today to downplay Russian interference by pointing to American interference in the election. She told Alex Witt the idea there was this big Russian attempt to back her campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton is absurd, saying, “This doesn’t pass the laugh test.” She continued on to say there was “other kinds of interference,” like all the airtime the media gave Trump in 2016: “Yes, there was Russian interference, but remember, there was very compelling interference going on by way of media, by way of the DNC––did the...

The driver announced there would be a "routine" security checkpoint and that is when two uniformed agents boarded the bus and announced they were from Border Patrol, according to Florida Immigrant Coalition, a Miami-based advocacy group.

    Bunch of Bible-thumpin’ racists . . . That’s in essence how a Joy Reid guest has described Roy Moore’s supporters. On Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, Eric Guster, an Alabama lawyer, said: “Roy Moore’s coalition, they [are] in the rural counties. The Bible Belt. The people who love to go to church on Sunday. The ones who want to build a wall and keep brown people out of the United States.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
