    I’m getting close to pulling the plug on Morning Joe and Joe Scarborough. On countless occasions over the years, readers have asked: why do you bother watching this guy? Who cares what he says? Why give him any additional exposure? etc. I’ve always responded along the lines that Morning Joe is the most-watched morning show among opinion leaders. And Joe and his guests would fairly often have interesting things to say. [snip] This morning offers yet one more example. Instead of directly insulting the Trump, Scarborough puts his insults in the mouth or minds of the president’s staffers. Over the...

    The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham was a guest on the Wednesday edition of FBN’s Risk and Reward and he didn’t hold back in hammering the liberal media’s persistence that President Trump as mentally ill, telling host Liz MacDonald that they’re no more than “crazy” “Democratic Party hacks.” Graham replied that the NewsBusters newsroom thought the White House press corps’s behavior “was crazy,” adding that “Jeff Flake picked the wrong day to give this speech” comparing Trump to Joseph Stalin “after the press just embarrassed themselves by all asking...a battery of questions refusing to accept the idea that Donald Trump...

    Last year, Joe Scarborough quit the Republican party. Looks like Joe’s now found a new gig: political strategist for the Democrats. And he’s sounding rougher than James Carville after a bad night on Bourbon Street. On today’s Morning Joe—saying that President Trump insulted the Congressional Black Caucus and Dick Durbin—Scarborough demanded that Dems “go after” Republicans and “make them pay.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski claim that President Trump is obsessed with Hillary Clinton. But it sounds like Scarborough’s the one obsessed — with taunting Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough mentioned no fewer than 13 times in two minutes that President Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary by three million votes. Scarborough repeatedly described Trump as having been “crushed” by Hillary. View the video here.
  • Vanity - Elected Democrats silent on Michael Wolff book. Media goes wild destroying themselves

    01/07/2018 7:46:30 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 33 replies
    Amazing...isn't it. very few, if any Democrat elected politicians have anything to say about the just released Michael Wolff book. Meanwhile the nutcase Democrat, Hate Trump, left-wing, Media is having a field day ranting about a no dividend paying "Trump Lie Telling fest". Why? The "Wolff" tome is pure political poison for any elected politician, Republican, Democrat or otherwise, it is as simple as that. Democrats hate Trump...but, they are not that stupid to know that embracing this farce of a book by insane Michael Wolff is a sure ticket to never being elected again. Case closed.

    It’s not exactly breaking news that Michael Wolff believes that Donald Trump is unfit to be President of the United States. That’s the entire thrust of his “Fire and Fury.” But appearing on Morning Joe today, Wolff used a colorful phrase in describing Trump, one that epitomized his low opinion the man. Asked by Joe Scarborough whether Trump was “mentally fit” to be president, Wolff responded: “Every time you speak to him, you think: this is a wingnut. There is something really alarming in ways that you cannot even begin to describe. It’s like you’re riveted to the seat.” Get...

    In spite of growing evidence that Michael Wolff’s explosive new book Fire and Fury should not be treated as the epitome of truthful and accurate reporting, Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson are still keeping the faith and treating it as the Holy Grail of recording the true story behind the internal workings of the Trump administration. At one point early in the second hour of Friday’s Morning Joe, Robinson professed his conviction that “every page [of Wolff’s book] really rings true, doesn’t it Joe,” to which Scarborough replied: “It does. It really does.” Joe...

    In July, MSNBC host and former Rep. Joe Scarborough showily announced on Stephen Colbert's CBS show that he was leaving the Republican Party. No one on the Republican National Committee flew a flag at half-mast. The announcement was at least a decade behind the reality. In 2006, he basically called then-President Bush an idiot. Last week, he did the same to President Trump. There is consistency here from the man who craves attention. Scarborough is the MSNBC equivalent of David Gergen, someone always twiddling his spit-covered finger in the wind and switching his allegiances depending on which option benefits him...

    NBC’s Joe Scarborough on Thursday is predicting that 2018 will be the “most consequential political year of our lives.” In a Washington Post op-ed, the “Morning Joe” host slams President Trump for his “anti-democratic” actions in 2017 and warns that a "storm is gathering" next year. Scarborough writes that Trump's “low points” included his endorsement of accused sexual predator Roy Moore for an Alabama Senate seat and his statement that there was violence “on both sides” at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. “Others would surely consider the president’s malignant idiocy in foreign affairs to be the most damning...

    Even The Huffington Post cannot let the down-ballot gutting of the Democrats go unnoticed. Senior politics editor Sam Stein was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday, where he said that while Obama was re-elected twice proving himself to be an excellent candidate—his party has suffered catastrophic losses during his presidency. In all, the Democrats have lost 1,030 seats at the state and federal level, a wipeout of at least a generation of Democratic talent. Stein added that with such a political butcher’s bill, you have to ask whether this man was good for Democrats (via The Hill):

    Maybe size doesn’t matter. And perhaps bigger isn’t always better? MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough is selling his multi-million dollar, Colonial-style, 7,826 square-foot house in New Canaan, Conn., where he resides with his son and daughter. The daughter will soon be going off to school, leaving the large home for just him and his son. Presumably his fiancé Mika Brzezinski spends time there, too.

    Well, that didn't take long for her to get her mind right. It only took a few hours from the time Mika Brzezinksi on Friday's Morning Joe criticized the sexual harassment accusers of Mark Halperin for not meeting with him personally to apologizing for it later that afternoon. Seeing your own career starting to slip away can be a powerful incentive for producing an apology. Mika's dramatic U-turn concerning former colleague Halperin was a result of this statement: "Mark Halperin is more than willing to meet with his accusers and apologize with them face-to-face. I've actually tried to offer him...

    On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough prefaced his statement by saying that he’d stayed away from criticizing Fox News, but then proceeded to unload—big time—on his network’s competitor: “Fox News, they are fomenting a constitutional crisis by suggesting to people watching Fox News in Middle America that somebody is attempting a coup: a coup against our government . . . What they are doing could lead to violence, and what they are doing is about as deeply irresponsible as anything I’ve ever seen.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Among all the women who have accused all the various men, Leeann Tweeden has pictorial evidence: the infamous photo of Al Franken with his hands over her breasts. So why would Mika Brzezinski single out Tweeden to cast doubt on her veracity? On today’s Morning Joe, Brzezinski said: “We’ve never really talked about the woman who first came out against Al Franken . . . Playboy model who goes on Hannity, who voted for Trump . . . I’m just wondering if all women need to be believed.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On Friday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show’s hosts and guests spent most of their broadcast mourning the announced resignation of Minnesota Senator Al Franken from Congress in the wake of over half a dozen allegations of sexual assault against him. In a stunning display of hypocrisy, MSNBC’s liberal morning pundits went to extraordinary lengths to cast doubt on the women who have accused Franken of sexual misconduct, violating the network’s own oft-repeated standards for Republican and conservative politicians.New York Times writer Bari Weiss was even brought on to complain about how “some innocent people are going to go down” as...

    A former congressional intern reportedly says she too was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy. Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night. Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship, the newspaper...

    Warning: This article contains graphic language and content. Embattled NBC executives have been falling over themselves insisting they had no idea about Matt Lauer’s pervy past. But if anyone doubts that New York’s media elite was aware of Lauer’s reputation, they should look no further than a top-secret “roast” of Lauer that took place in October 2008. The notorious event -- now legendary in New York media circles -- pushed the outer limits of sexist, racist, homophobic and obscene jokes -- and left little doubt that Lauer’s colleagues knew NBC’s biggest star had a troubled marriage and a wandering eye....

    Fox News host Sean Hannity suggested that Joe Scarborough, co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," needs “help” for his “obsessive-compulsive hatred” of President Trump. "Maybe liberal Joe, maybe you should worry about getting his emotions in check and not letting this obsessive-compulsive, nonstop hatred of President Trump send him over the edge,” Hannity said Thursday.

    MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said on Thursday that people close to President Trump told him during the campaign that Trump has "early stages of dementia." During MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Scarborough said Trump is "completely detached from reality." "You have somebody inside the White House that the New York Daily News says is mentally unfit," Scarborough said.

    "I've always heard stories about, you know, him kind of fooling around or whatever," Brzezinski said. Scarborough said he attended a Friars Club event several years ago for a roast of Lauer, and said many jokes were made about his sexual pursuits at work. "The most powerful people in media, and everybody that came up were making fun of Matt Lauer, not pushing himself on people, but the whole thing was, he does his show and then he has sex with people, with employees," Scarborough said.
