    Looks like President Trump’s dropping of the MOAB might have had an even bigger impact on Morning Joe than it did on ISIS. In March, the show was in full Apocalypse Now mode about President Trump. Take this excerpt from my item of March 6th: “Joe and Mika waxed apocalyptic, claiming the country is ‘in crisis’ and questioning President Trump’s ‘stability.’ At one point, Mika even seemed to choke up as she said, ‘this is really a dark time which could get worse.’” Cut to today, when, in the wake of foreign policy success on the Russia, China, Syria and...
  • Flashback: Wannabe POTUS Adviser Joe Scarborough Told GOP To Ditch Candidate Trump

    Breitbart ^ | 04/12/17
    Chris Buskirk at American Greatness reminds readers of MSNBC host Joe Scarborough getting the 2016 election completely wrong, buying into conventional wisdom that candidate Donald Trump was toast. Scarborough is currently on the warpath against Trump’s campaign CEO Steve Bannon, with day-to-day rants portraying the White House chief strategist as incompetent or mentally unstable. From American Greatness: Before the election Scarborough repeatedly warned Republicans to cut and run from their nominee. In August, he gravely warned that for Republicans the election is “about saving the Senate, it’s about not getting wiped out in the House, it’s about not getting wiped...
  • Morning Joe Diagnoses President Trump With Mental 'Disorder' (Psychological Projection)

    Newsbusters.org ^ | April 4, 2017 | Alexis Thomasi
    Monday on Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough, along with the other panelists, attempted to diagnose President Trump with a mental disorder. The discussion began after a clip was played of Trump walking out of a signing. Scarborough repeatedly asked his co host, Mika Brzezinski, “What just happened?”. This catapulted into Scarborough explaining: “We had our misgivings about him. But I think it's safe to say neither you nor I thought it would be this bad.” Scarborough continued this discussion expressing: “We were concerned – really, really concerned. Never thought though that the guy that we've known for 10, 11, 12...
  • Scarborough: MSM Ignoring Unmasking Of Trump Aides by Obama Admin

    On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough argued that the MSM is failing to cover the story of the Obama admin “unmasking”and leaking the names of Trump campaign people caught up in the intercepts of Russians. According to Scarborough, 95% of the story is the attempt by the Russians to influence the election. But that still leaves the 5% that the MSM is ignoring because the people unmasked were disliked, and in the case of Michael Flynn, “loathed” by the media, whereas the improper activity was “by people who, let’s face it, most of the people in the media like and...

    Joe Scarborough spent the first half-hour of today’s Morning Joe blasting White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon for the failure of the health care bill. Excerpts: “I will call Steve Bannon a hack. When you go in and threaten members, you’re not only a hack, you’re stupid at your game . . . Bannon failed miserably. He is the biggest loser.” “The stupidity of Steve Bannon knows no end.” “He’s an idiot when it comes to how Washington works.” “He blew this.” View the video here.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Should conservatives be rooting for the health care bill to pass the House today, or be defeated or withdrawn? Joe Scarborough made an interesting observation today, quoting the late Senator Paul Simon at the end of his career on the biggest lesson he had learned: "sometimes when you win, you lose. And sometimes when you lose, you win." Scarborough pointed to the way Democrats whooped it up when they "won" on Obamacare in 2010 . . . and proceeded to experience six years of political "hell," losing 1,000 seats across the country. Opined Scarborough, "I think the best thing that...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Joe Scarborough has suggested that—in order to change the headlines and “blow up” the House investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russians—the White House “shoved” House intel committee chairman Devin Nunes in front of the cameras to reveal that communications of President Trump and associates may have been intercepted after the election by intelligence agencies conducting surveillance of foreign targets. Said Scarborough on today’s Morning Joe: “it just looked like, and sounded like from some reporting I did yesterday, that you had the White House desperate to do anything to change headlines this morning, because, again, from the...

    At the beginning of the primary season, the Huffington Post infamously consigned coverage of Donald Trump's campaign to its entertainment section. So it was striking that on today's Morning Joe, it was HuffPo's Sam Stein who chided his fellow liberals for refusing to acknowledge the obvious: that President Trump gave a good speech last night [see Stein's tweet, below.] Stein's take was echoed across the panel. Mark Halperin called it Trump's best speech ever, an assessment shared by Chris Cillizza. Joe Scarborough, who has been very tough on Stephen Miller, gave him high marks for writing such a good speech....
  • Epic Scarborough Rant Against Liberal Academia Shutting Down Conservative Students

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Joe Scarborough went on an epic rant this morning against liberal academia and the way it shuts down and ultimately radicalizes conservative students who grow frustrated with being stifled in the classroom. The segment began as an effort to explain Stephen Miller’s personality, as Morning Joe cited a column by Andrew Sullivan in which he speaks of conservative students who are often “mocked, isolated, and anathematized on campus” and often react by adopting “brattish and obnoxious positions just to tick off their SJW peers and teachers.” Scarborough took it from there, growing increasingly inflamed as he described his personal experiences...

    On Monday, the hosts of Morning Joe mocked and berated White House adviser Stephen Miller for his recent comments regarding the court ruling against President Trump's immigration order. Tuesday morning was no different, as the show came back from a commercial break by airing a distorted, grainy black-and-white video of Miller. The video contained the statement he gave on the network Sunday shows concerning the President’s executive powers and spliced Miller’s quotes attempting to make him look sinister and menacing. After the video concluded, host Joe Scarborough declared, “Wow,” and journalist Willie Geist agreed, “That’s terrifying.” Co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed...

    Morning Joe came down with a bad case of the vapors this morning, clutching its collective pearls [to mix metaphors] over President Trump’s comments about the court currently hearing the case on the executive order on immigration. Jon Meacham said that Trump was “messing with the Magna Carta,” of all things! Joe Scarborough upped the anxiety ante, saying “the historical precedents are chilling. I don’t even want to mention their names, but some of the dangerous autocrats of the 20th century, their two goals were to, first, undermine an independent judiciary and, second, to undermine a free press.” Gee, wonder...
  • Sorry, media: Trump has already won his war with you

    Canada Free Press ^ | 02/06/17 | Dan Calabrese
    Because no president will ever again play by your rules Joe Scarborough tried last week to warn Donald Trump that there’s no way Trump can win a war with the media. The media will always have a bigger megaphone, Scarborough insisted, and if nothing else they can outlast and outtalk any president. This has been conventional media wisdom for decades. And it’s wrong. Trump has already won his war with the media, no matter how his presidency goes. Even if his presidency goes badly and he’s constantly under siege by the media - to the point where his approval ratings...

    Day Deux of Joe Scarborough's tirade against the Trump admin's handling of the executive order on immigration. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough condemned the admin's accusation that acting AG Sally Yates had "betrayed" the Justice Department by refusing to enforce the executive order. Scarborough repeatedly called the use of the word "frightening," suggesting it was worthy of an "autocrat" in a country like Venezuela. Scarborough then turned the tables, saying that Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon, and Trump himself had "betrayed" Defense Secretary Mattis, DHS head John Kelly, and others by failing to provide them details of the order before it...

    Joe Scarborough reported something stunning on today’s Morning Joe—an insight into just how blatantly, consciously biased one of America’s leading newspapers was in its effort to elect Hillary Clinton. Said Scarborough: “There was somebody that held an extraordinarily important position in print media who brought their people together after Hillary Clinton lost and literally said, ‘we did the best we could do. We tried and we failed. But we did the best we could do.'” View the video here.

    Is the party—the Republican party, that is—over? That's what Joe Scarborough is predicting. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough surmised that "Donald Trump, by the end, will blow apart the Republican party" and that people are "going to look at George W. Bush as the last Republican president." Scarborough depicted Trump as "in a sense, the first independent president." Joe also suggested that Bernie Sanders might have the same party-demolishing impact on the Democrats. View the video here.

    Cory Booker’s shameless gambit of launching his presidential bid by attacking Jeff Sessions has really gotten under this Insurrectionist’s skin. From my Quick Hit of this morning: “I reckon he earned the scorn of many of his fellow Dems for his transparent ploy.” And so it was gratifying to get confirmation this morning from Joe Scarborough, who on Morning Joe said this of Booker’s stunt: “obviously calculated . . . in a way that would have the other senators, especially Democratic senators, wanting to drag him away . . . a lot of senators irked, especially on the Democratic side....

    On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough ripped as “repulsive” Sean Hannity’s “bromance” with Julian Assange, and more generally criticized the Republican change of heart on Wikileaks. Background on the evolution of Hannity’s views on Assange here [note: from Daily Beast.] Scarborough noted that when Wikileaks divulged information about a CIA operation some years ago, Assange became the Republican “enemy #1.” In 2010, Donald Trump himself tweeted that WikiLeaks was “disgraceful” and that there “should be death penalty or something.” View the video here.
  • Scarborough Warns: Republicans Will Be ‘Wiped Out’ in 2018 if They Go Too Far Right

    “There, I said it. Mark it Down. Write it.” That was Joe Scarborough on today’s Morning Joe predicting that Republicans will be “wiped out” in the 2018 elections if they govern as far right as the Trump cabinet selections suggest. Scarborough drew the analogy to the 1994, and more specifically to the 2010 midterm elections, when Dems suffered cataclysmic losses after an emboldened Obama admin governed from the left in its first two years. Scarborough misses an important point, in the view of this Insurrectionist. Dems didn’t get punished in 2010 because of the abstract notion that they governed too...

    In the wake of yesterday’s terror attacks, including the one in Berlin in which 12 people were killed and many more injured, Donald Trump tweeted that the civilized world must “change thinking.” A disdainful Joe Scarborough reacted on today’s Morning Joe: “I don’t know exactly what the civilized world is going to do about trucks, unless we’re going to ban trucks. But again, some of the deadliest attacks have been with vehicles.” But the driver of the truck in Berlin yesterday was reportedly a Pakistani “refugee.” And the truck in the Nice attack that killed 86 people was driven by...

    Some feuds die hard. Joe Scarborough and Keith Olbermann have one going back to at least 2008, with another flare-up in 2012. Scarborough’s got the bigger mic now, and he wielded it on today’s Morning Joe to mercilessly mock Olbermann as someone suffering from delusions of Nazi tomatoes that talk to him. The context was Mika Brzezinski role-playing Rex Tillerson being interviewed during his Senate confirmation hearing. Joe played the committee chairman, but couldn’t help himself from launching into an Olby impression, with his trademark “Sirrr!”, then riffing “you do know that he calls tomatoes, that he thinks are staring...
