  • 7.5 Billion People and NBC Can’t Find One to Say Something Good about Trump

    It’s unanimous! 7.5 billion to zero! No one in the entire world likes Donald Trump! That would be the conclusion you’d have to draw if you watched the segment NBC’s Richard Engel prepared for today’s Morning Joe on international reaction to Trump’s first 100 days. From the UK to South Korea, the West Bank to Germany, there was amazing consensus against Trump. Among people Engel aired, the best anyone had to say about Trump was British news anchor Alistair Stewart’s observation that at least we’ve literally survived his first 100 days. Said Stewart: there isn’t “all-out nuclear conflict—although it is...
  • Morning Joe: Democrats Have Forgotten How To Win

    Today’s Morning Joe had some good advice for Democrats if they want to start winning again, particularly at the House level. They need to stop imposing ideological purity tests on their candidates and nominate candidates who resonate culturally in swing districts. The good news for Republicans is that there is no sign that Dems will heed that wise counsel. To the contrary, Morning Joe was replete with indications that Dems have forgotten how to win, preferring to go down with their liberal guns a-blazing. Excerpts: View the video here.
  • Morning Joe Going Soft on Trump?

    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...
  • Halperin on Bannon: One of Few in White House “Who is Creative, Innovative, Takes Risks”

    Morning Joe has been on a Steve Bannon-bashing tear the last couple of days, with various panel members predicting his departure from the White House. As Mika Brzezinski put it yesterday, “the end is nigh” for Bannon. But Mark Halperin made a strong case for Bannon on today’s show, saying that being conventional is not what got Donald Trump elected, and that “Bannon is one of the few people in the White House and in Trump’s life who is creative, who’s innovative, who takes risks, who advocates taking risks. Someone has to be for that.” View the video here.
  • Joe and Mika inch closer to confirming their relationship

    04/12/2017 7:54:01 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 39 replies
    Have MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski come closer to confirming they’re a couple? They’ve revealed in a new interview that their pets at home are very familiar. The “Morning Joe” pair’s been coy about any off-screen romance in the past. Page Six exclusively reported last year that Mika quietly divorced after 23 years of marriage, and that they’re “widely rumored to be romantically involved — and there’s plenty of on-air chemistry for all to see.” But she told GQ last year in a profile, “I really don’t want to talk about my personal life.” In a new interview...
  • Morning Joe: Syria was Obama's 'Defining Moment' and 'History Going to be Rough'

    Surprising consensus on today's Morning Joe that Barack Obama blew it bigly in Syria by punting on his redline. Even Obama fan Mike Barnicle admitted, "Syria was a serious mistake that the Obama administration made." Foreign policy honcho Richard Haass said "history's going to be rough on this. This is going to be the defining moment for the Obama presidency." It wasn't just the panel that trashed Obama's mishandling of Syria. Joe Scarborough noted that not only did leading Dems like John Kerry and Hillary quickly come out in support of Trump's strikes, but that Dems were saying things that...
  • 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...
  • Mika Brzezinski Absurdly Nitpicks Rep. Labrador on 'Paid Family Leave'

    "Paid family leave." You must use those exact words in that exact order or Mika Brzezinski will go into nitpick overdrive. Such was the case on the March 28 edition of Morning Joe when Mika was interviewing Congressman Raul Labrador who committed the high sin of saying several terms meaning just that yet annoying her by not reciting the exact approved liberal term.

    SNBC's Mika Brzezinski ramped up her criticism of President Trump and his top advisers in an interview published Tuesday, advising all media outlets that they should no longer put Kellyanne Conway on the air. "I feel even more so that everyone should ban her," Brzezinski told Variety magazine in reference to her February announcement that Conway would no longer be booked on "Morning Joe." "I’m surprised that these little acrobatic games are played with her on live national television. I think it denigrates what we do. It’s clear she doesn’t bring anything to the table. It’s clear she doesn’t know...

    If you haven’t seen OMB Director Mick Mulvaney in action, do yourself a favor and watch the video here. On today’s Morning Joe, Mulvaney showed himself to be smart, well-spoken, undefensive and down-to-earth as he systematically demolished Mika’s, and by extension, the CBO’s, claims about the Trump admin’s health care proposal. Before Mulvaney appeared, the panel had engaged in extended hand-wringing over the loss of coverage that the CBO has projected. Mulvaney made three telling points: View the video here.

    Washington Examiner ^ | • 3/12/17 4:58 PM | By CAITLIN YILEK (@HAUSOFCAIT)
    President Trump has unfollowed "Morning Joe" anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Twitter. A CNN report, which recorded all of the Twitter users the president followed March 6, had the MSNBC co-hosts on the list. At some point in the next six days, Trump unfollowed them. Criticized for being too cozy with Trump during the beginning of the presidential campaign, Scarborough and Brzezinski have been sharply critical of the president in recent weeks. An unnamed adviser told the Associated Press in February that the decrease in Trump's early-morning tweets were a result of the president no longer watching "Morning...

    Shortly before the presidential election, GOP public relations worker Steve Schmidt saw Hillary Clinton “trending over 400” electoral college votes. He also predicted that Dems would retake the Senate and were “close” to retaking the House. We know how all that played out. So you probably want to take this morning’s comments from the man who brought you John McCain’s 2008 campaign with a gargantuan grain of salt. Asked on Morning Joe what he would tell President Trump regarding his assertion that President Obama tapped his phones, Schmidt went on a rant. Lowlights: “This makes you look unhinged . ....
  • WaPo’s Ignatius: 300 Possible Terrorists Travel Ban Would Have Stopped is a ‘Tiny Number’

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    For David Ignatius, what is an acceptable number of terrorists and terrorist attacks in the United States? The question arises because on today’s Morning Joe, Ignatius, of the Washington Post, was discussing the Trump admin statement that since 9/11, 300 people admitted from countries on the reissued executive order have been subject to “criminal, counter-terrorism investigations.” Sniffed Ignatius: that’s a “tiny number.” Really? If those 300 had not been caught up in counter-terrorism investigations, how many would have carried out terrorist attacks? If only 1-in-20 had, that would be 15 terrorist attacks. Fifteen San Bernadinos, Pulses. Even one. Tiny? View...

    ‘This is not funny, this is really bad’ President Trump's wiretap tweets struck an emotional chord with MSNBC's Mika Brzezinksi. The morning anchor fought back tears Monday morning as she told viewers that "we are all really nervous" about what the Trump Administration is going to do. "This is not funny," Brzezinski told her audience. "This is really bad. Just for the record, we are all really nervous. So if people out there feel nervous, we do too. We don’t think this is funny." The host also issued a direct appeal to Trump's staff, asking them how they can look...

    Morning Joe suffered a split personality today over President Trump's tweets alleging that President Obama had tapped his phones. On the one hand, 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." But at the same time, Joe Scarborough zeroed in on former Obama spox Josh Earnest's "very legalistic" responses to questioning by ABC's Martha Raddatz. On This Week, Raddatz cited former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau's tweet, warning "I'd be careful...

    Joe Scarborough and John Heilemann were leading an overheated charge against Jeff Sessions on today’s Morning Joe, when a surprising note of caution came from an unexpected source: Kasie Hunt. Hunt is an MSNBC correspondent, not a commentator, nor someone suspected of harboring hidden conservative leanings. Yet Hunt issued a blunt assessment on Dem dealings over Sessions. Observing that there’s danger for Dems if they overplay their hand, Hunt said: “I think one of the lessons we learned in the 2016 election is Americans are sick of foul outrage.” View the video here.
  • Morning Joe Praises Trump Address: 'Best Speech He's Given'

    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....

    On Morning Joe Tuesday, the panel discussed President Donald Trump's upcoming address that evening to a joint-session of Congress. The speech expected to cover his latest budget proposal, including a $54 billion increase in defense spending from which the panel deduced that the Commander-in-Chief "does not sound like a peace-time president." "That is a tremendous amount of money to spend on ramping up the military," ​ New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters said. "$54 billion. That does not to me sound like a peace-time president." Co-host Mika Brezinski looked to hype Trump as erratic and said, "When you hear it in its totality from a president who undermines judiciary, president who flouts First Amendment...

    Controlling "exactly what people think" is the job of the media, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning. While discussing President Trump's entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media. "And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think," Brzezinski said. "And that, that is our job." SCARBOROUGH: "Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I...
