    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...

    Morning Joe opened today’s show by insisting that Steve Bannon had insulted Alabama when he suggested that University of Alabama alum Joe Scarborough, unlike Bannon, couldn’t get into Georgetown or Harvard. If that was an insult to Alabama, it was something of a three-rail bank shot. But a bit later, Morning Joe aired a clip of Roy Moore foe Charles Barkley insulting Alabamians in the most explicit terms. Said Barkley: “At some point, we’ve got to stop looking like idiots to the nation.” 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.

    Do you support Roy Moore? If so, there’s an Ivy League professor who questions whether you are a “decent” human being. [snip] Glaude next declared that “Roy Moore isn’t a decent fellow.” Saving the worst for last, Glaude, after calling Moore a “bigot” and a “pedophile,” said: “those who support him, we might need to question whether or not they’re decent.” 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...
  • Morning Joe: “Cynical Politics” Behind Dem Ousting of Al Franken

    The likes of Kirsten Gillibrand parade themselves as paragons of avenging feminist virtue in calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign. But the Morning Joe crew sees another motive behind the Democrat’s move to force Franken out: “cynical politics.” Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, and Willie Geist all made similar points: the move to defenestrate Franken is really about Democrats trying to give themselves the high ground on the issue of sexual misconduct. The Dems’ real target is Roy Moore. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    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.

    President Trump dredged up a notorious old mystery with his latest bomb at NBC, citing the bizarre death 16 years ago of a young female staffer in the office of then-congressman and current “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough. The story of Lori Klausutis has dogged Scarborough on the Internet since she was found dead in his Florida district office on July 19, 2001. Although Scarborough was out of town — and the medical examiner later ruled she had died after falling and hitting her head on a desk — conspiracy theorists have long speculated, with no reliable evidence, that Scarborough...

    Pro marketing tip for Morning Joe: don’t deceive your viewers, and then call them “morons” when they complain about being duped. When news stories were published revealing that the episode of Morning Joe aired this past Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, had been pre-taped, an MSNBC exec made a non-apology apology: “Would it have helped if there was a disclaimer? Maybe. But that’s not typically done.” But on today’s show, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were not in any sort of apologetic mood. To the contrary, Scarborough said “you’d have to be extraordinarily thick” not to realize the show wasn’t...

    MSNBC has been caught faking the silliest piece of news. The network attempted to trick viewers that the hosts of “Morning Joe” were hard at work on Friday, airing a “live” morning after Thanksgiving show. In reality, the show was pre-recorded.As reported by the Washington Post, Mika Brzezinski, cohost along side Joe Scarborough, opened the show with playful banter.  “Day after Thanksgiving! Hoo! I’m stuffed. I always cook the turkey with the guts in it !” said Brzezinski.“Joe didn’t notice. He ate the bag,” joked co-host Willie Geist  “It was good! Well, you know, the game made up for it...

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” tried to fool viewers into thinking Friday’s pre-taped show was live and host Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski even discussed their Thanksgiving meals – even though the holiday hadn’t occurred yet when they taped the show. Brzezinski opened the show by saying, “Day after Thanksgiving… I’m stuffed,” while Scarborough nervously laughed as if he knew the engaged-to-be-married co-hosts were being dishonest. The opening to the show is still available on MSNBC’s website.

    On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, while discussing President Trump’s remarks to reporters yesterday on the White House lawn, NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt decided to do an impromptu campaign ad for Democratic senatorial candidate Doug Jones, who is Roy Moore’s opponent in the Alabama special election. Part of Hunt’s pitch involved the fact that Jones is best known for prosecuting the perpetrators of the infamous 1963 Birmingham church bombing that killed four black girls. Co-host Mika Brzezinski instantly saw a connection between this piece of information and Trump’s earlier claim to journalists that Jones is “soft on crime.” From...

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) appeared on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” on Thursday to discuss the news from Wednesday's James Comey hearing. More specifically, the topic was the FBI director revealing that longtime Hillary Clinton advisor Huma Abedin forwarded classified emails to then-husband Anthony Weiner, ostensibly so he could print them out. “Do you believe that is a crime?” panelist Willie Geist asked to open the Blumenthal interview. “If there was classified information and it was improperly passed to a person unauthorized to receive it? Yes, it’s a crime,” the senator replied. ”Without knowing what the intentions were and so forth, there...

    As you can imagine, Morning Joe is having a field day with the Washington Post story about Roy Moore. But beyond all the predictable reactions, Donny Deutsch—he of Manhattan and the Hamptons—threw in some gratuitous elitist disdain for the denizens of Alabama. Deutsch predicted that if no further allegations emerge, Moore will win due in part to the “ignorance” of Alabama Republicans. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    How much does the MSM hate Donald Trump? So much so that it is making a hero of the president that–prior to Trump–the liberal media most loved to hate. On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and panelist Jon Meacham praised Nixon for complying with a Supreme Court ruling and turning over secretly-recorded tapes, even though Nixon knew that meant the end of his presidency. In contrast, Meacham darkly surmised: “I don’t know that we’re with a president now who will follow the rule of law, as even Richard Nixon did, in the end.” View the video here.

    The liberal press’s contempt for the intelligence of the American people was on full display on Friday’s Morning Joe as columnists and reporters from The Washington Post, the Associated Press, and USA Today all joined in a united chorus to insult the public as being too stupid to parse the difference between truth and propaganda. Moreover, once again, the show’s panelists also used their platform to call for government regulation of social media to stop “election meddling.”Morning Joe’s latest call for censorship of news that they don’t like came in response to a short clip that they played of Deputy...

    CNN has reported that five women have accused Mark Halperin of sexual harassment during his time at ABC News some years ago. Halperin has been an MSNBC contributor for years, and a regular on the Morning Joe panel. Mika Brzezinski addressed the story this morning: "CNN is reporting allegations regarding our friend, Mark Halperin . . . I'm sure we'll be talking about it again when we know more about it." My take: it might sound like a cliche, but I was surprised and saddened to see the story. It's easy to lump all MSM figures in the same biased...

    On TuesdayÂ’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough returned in fine form to play the part of the impassioned, moderate conservative who completely supports the Second Amendment, but just wants some sensible gun controls too. However, by the end of the show, Joe had argued for banning most legal weapons currently in AmericansÂ’ possession while simultaneously revealing a complete lack of knowledge about basic gun terminology.

    Now joining the parade is MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. Following Trump’s angry Friday tweets, Scarborough led his table full of guests in a discussion about how unfair the press was towards Clinton last year, how they relentlessly beat her up, and obsessively focused on her allegedly faults. “I think the fake news media was pretty damn hostile towards Hillary Clinton throughout most of the campaign,” Scarborough said. “So that’s just fake news, Donald.”

    For months Morning Joe has offered up a steady stream of apocalyptic condemnation of President Trump: his mental health has been explicitly questioned and comments on Charlottesville were blistered, with one panelist calling on his aides to resign en masse or be “forever tainted with the stench.” Just last week, Mika Brzezinski was calling Trump “unhinged,” claiming she couldn’t distinguish between Trump and Kim Jong Un. All of which makes the praise for President Trump on today’s show all the more remarkable. Joe Scarborough led off by observing that “everywhere I’ve gone, people have been talking about Donald Trump’s sort...
