    Too little, too late. Still . . . On today’s Morning Joe, in the context of discussing the Lewinsky affair and related matters, Mika Brzezinski said: “I think the days of sort of tiptoeing around the Clintons are over. And I’m fine with it.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • MSNBC Host: Jeb Bush Would've Been 'Hero' Had He Punched Donald Trump in the Face

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said that she had previously told then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush that “he should have punched” President Donald Trump “in the face” after one of the primary debates in 2016. During an episode of Wallace’s show “Deadline: White House” on MSNBC on Thursday, she was discussing Bush’s feud with Trump. Bush and Trump used to have heated debates in 2015 and 2016 before the former governor of Florida dropped out of the race. Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele was discussing one instance when Bush called out Trump during a Republican debate. "Let me tell you,...

    Todd prefaced his comments this way: “I want to play a quick montage. Beto O'Rourke, the Bobby Kennedy of millenials, decided to go negative.” . . CBS in early October hyped O’Rourke as a “rising star.” Sadly for journalists, the “rising star” is now losing by an average of seven points. Over on MSNBC, Wednesday, Eddie Glaude Jr predicted an O’Rourke victory, adding, “If not, then I'll just reach for my Jamieson bottle.”

    Commenting on how Democrats can strengthen their party by effectively targeting Trump administration policies they oppose, Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said liberals must "fight in the courts, fight in the streets" and "fight at the ballot box." On Tuesday morning's Morning Joe (MSNBC), co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, "So, broad question about the future of the Democratic Party, especially given your firsthand experience with what we've all been through. There's so much going on here that we clearly see, you know, places where you -- we can criticize what the administration is doing, but how does the party rebuild? How do...
  • MSNBC Guest Says Trump Mocked Warren over 'White Anxieties about Who's White'

    Curious as to how clueless is the New York Times? Mara Gay—a member of the Grey Lady's editorial board—claimed on Ari Melbers's MSNBC show today that President Trump's mocking of Elizabeth Warren's phony claim to be a Native American "was actually about white anxieties among Donald Trump's base about who's white in America."Anxieties about who is white in America? What meaningless identity-politics gobbledygook! No, Ms. Gay. Trump's point is that Warren cheated. That she made her bogus claim of Native American-hood in order to get ahead in academia.

    Serial fibber Brian Williams told yet another whopper on Friday night from his home in MSNBC exile known as The 11th Hour with Brian Williams. So what else is new? What makes his latest historical untruth ironically special is it came as Williams along with historian Michael Beschloss were fact checking President Donald Trump for a supposed error he made during his speech at a rally in Lebanon, Ohio on Friday. For years following the Civil War, many historians as well as much of the public in general discounted the military abilities of General Ulysses S. Grant by claiming he was able...
  • MSNBC's Velshi Can't Comprehend Why Murder of Saudi Journalist Would Bother Trump

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Since President Trump criticizes US journalists for propagating fake news, it's incomprehensible that he would care if a foreign country murdered a journalist. That's the kind of twisted, bizarre logic that Ali Velshi employed while guest hosting Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. Velshi put it to Amy Kremer of Women Vote Trump PAC that it was difficult to square Trump's criticism of the media with the concern he expressed over the possible murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudi government. Kremer patiently explained to Velshi that the two matters are entirely different: [snip] Velshi's...

    Donald Trump is responsible for all manner of things, particularly if you ask anyone at MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times or the Washington Post. He’s caused unrest around the world using nothing more than tweets, sparked riots in the streets and I’m pretty sure at least a couple of people have blamed him for global warming. But perhaps his greatest trick of all has been to increase the rates of alcohol consumption in America. Or at least that’s the opinion of WaPo columnist Kathleen Parker. Amid hurricanes, a vanished journalist, the recent Supreme Court hearings, midterms and “mobs,” it...

    Alexandria Ocasio Cortez appeared on MsNBC with Chris Hayes last week ago to discus her views on how to properly represent her constituents in Congress. Alex Parker at Redstate spotted a jarring similarity between Ms. Know-Nothing and another amazingly clueless young lady: Miss Teen South Carolina 2007: Of course Caitlin was running for a beauty contest title and Alexandra is running for, well, you know. But her answer is equally epic: (from Redstate) On October 5th, Alexandria appeared on MSNBC to let loose a few more syllables to…well…you’ll see.Host Chris Hayes gushed:“How are you going get along with these people...

    This is an absolute classic out of the Dem/MSM playbook. Take a huge, expensive, inefficient, government program. Find someone with a heartwrenching story who is helped by it. Highlight that story as if it represents the essence of the program in question. Bonus points if you can get someone to choke up on camera. Reporters noticed that after Kavanaugh was confirmed, the Democrats shifted the agenda to health care as the central issue of the midterms. And thus it was that today's Morning Joe featured a segment in which NBC reporter Morgan Radford traveled to Ohio ahead of President Trump's...

    Hey there, Democrat Senators Feinstein, Booker, Harris, Blumenthal, et al. Hope you enjoyed your time in the limelight during the Kavanaugh hearings. But sadly, dear Spartacus & Friends, the time has come to pay the bills—at the polls. On Morning Joe—notoriously no fan of things Republican—there was consensus today that the Kavanaugh hearings have provided a "huge bump" for the GOP, while amounting to a "disaster" for the Dems. The comments came after polling maven Steve Kornacki reported that Republicans have moved ahead in four key Senate races: Tennessee, Texas, Nevada, and Arizona. Get the rest of the story and...

    Fox News maintained its position as “King of Cable” last week during the dramatic confirmation hearings and subsequent vote for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Fox crushed rivals CNN and MSNBC in all demographics. Nielsen Media Research reports that, from October 1 through October 7, Fox News more than doubled the viewership of CNN and MSNBC in total viewers for both primetime and total daily viewers. Hannity was the most watched cable show in the country averaging 4.4 million total viewers. Tucker Carlson Tonight and Ingraham Angle both clocked in with 3.7 million viewers. Ultimately, a total of five Fox...

    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...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday challenged media to investigate how the Democrats handled Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Scarborough argued Ford’s “unsubstantiated allegations” that leaked would “most likely not have made print” five or 10 years ago. “What New York Times reporter, what Washington Post reporter was assigned a story by their editors to go see what really happened with Dianne Feinstein, and asked Dianne Feinstein and her staff the sort of questions that would have happened if the Republican Party had done the same thing. Not one,” stated Scarborough. He...

    University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato joins MSNBC's 'MTP Daily' with host Chuck Todd to discuss the Republicans struggling in states Trump won in 2016. Sabato said Trump is in trouble in the Midwest, a part of the country where he did well in 2016, and it "seems to be flipping" in the midterm year. He said the states he carried, it appears, to elect Democratic Senators. "Even if the Republicans hold the Senate given the very pro-Republican math that exists, President Trump is in trouble in some of these states," Sabato said. "He's fallen considerably as...

    Talk about a Freudian slip, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, with a slip of the tongue, voiced what anyone paying attention already knows, that being that there are no moderate Democrats left. Doing what Democrats do best, projecting and flipping the narrative, the head of the party who called un accomplished democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez its “future,” appeared on MSNBC to suggest the GOP is the party of extremists — except his tongue couldn’t keep up with his deceptive mind. “When you see the mistreatment of Dr. Ford, that’s a mistreatment of every woman across America,” Perez declared. “When...
