    Hide the sharp objects! Head to the shelters! Apocalypse now! The end is nigh! Every day, Morning Joe‘s apparent goal is to outdo itself with predictions of impending doom, all due, of course, to Donald Trump. Today’s opening segment was a classic example of the genre. Have a look at the mashup video I’ve assembled. You can fill in the blanks, but the general theme is that the country is in “dangerous” times, in “chaos,” and headed to “breakdown,” thanks to a “demagogic leader: and think of who that might be.” Get the rest of the story and view the...

    In a remarkable televised outburst on today’s Morning Joe, during a discussion of gun control and school safety, panelist Donny Deutsch suddenly screamed at Republican Congressman Steve Stivers of Ohio: “You need to get rid of the assault weapons! You know what we need to do!” Deutsch’s outburst was so ugly that it was too much even for Joe Scarborough, who cut in: “All right, all right, okay, okay, okay. Let’s be respectful.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Swamp creatures don’t dig outsiders getting in on their act. Jeremy Bash gave a prime example of the phenomenon on today’s Morning Joe. Commenting on the news that Jared Kushner has lost his top-secret clearance, Bash–a former Obama official–snidely suggested that people with Kushner’s lower-level “secret” clearance were fit only to: “deliver the mail, or mow the White House lawn, or serve navy-bean soup at the White House mess.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • David Hogg: Gov. Rick Scott Should Be ‘Held Accountable’ ..[TR]

    <p>David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, told Morning Joe on Monday that he thinks Gov. Rick Scott should be “held accountable” for the failure of three sheriff’s deputies to confront the gunman. Law enforcement sources confirmed to news outlets that three deputies from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office remained outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High as the shooter opened fire, eventually killing 17 people. Hogg, appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, said the news is “raising concern” in his community, before accusing elected officials of attempting the blame the shooting on “bureaucracy.” “They’re in charge of them,” Hogg said of those elected officials. “This is their fault.” “They should have been regulating them,” he continued. “I’m not going to allow them to pressure these people because at the end of the day it’s their fault. These elected officials are the boss of these sheriff personnel and just like the president is the boss of the FBI, Governor Rick Scott is essentially the boss of Scott Israel, the sheriff, and as such he should be held accountable. “He can’t just blame this on the bureaucracy and expect to get re-elected.” Hogg went on to praise high school football coach Aaron Feis, who died shielding students from the gunman, “unlike those cowardly Broward County Sheriff officials.” “Sadly, these are a few individuals that did not conduct their job correctly, but I don’t think it’s right that Governor Rick Scott is trying to blame this on the bureaucracy in an effort to get reelected.”</p>
  • Morning Joe’s Mika Melts Down Over Trump’s Speech And Defaults To Calling Him A ‘Dictator'[VIDEO]

    “Morning Joe’s” Mika Brzezinski was rocked by pollster Frank Luntz after she called President Donald Trump “the great dictator” on MSNBC Wednesday. “Why can’t people give him credit for what has happened?” Luntz asked. “Why can’t they give him credit for his speech that went — that people had a chance to see? If you were a Democrat, there was something there for you. If you’re a Republican, there’s something there for you, that it has specifics.” “I think because he’s literally screwed everybody in that room over a few times too many,” Brzezinski replied. “He’s been vulgar. He’s been...

    It was one thing for Joe Scarborough to make the case for Mitt Romney, arguing that these frightening times demand the kind of competence Romney offers. But on today's Morning Joe, it was stunning to hear a New York Dem like Donny Deutsch say something very similar. According to the ad man: "There is a psychological reason to go to Mitt Romney, and that is: wow! We kind of made a mistake four years ago. We get to do a do-over. He was right about Syria, he was right about a lot of things."View the video here.
  • Buchanan & Deutsch: Imprison Pastor To Prevent Koran-Burning

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Talk about your strange bedfellows . . . Both Pat Buchanan and Donny Deutsch have advocated the arrest of Pastor Terry Jones to prevent his possible burning of Korans and the danger to US troops such act would threaten. The paleo-conservative and the New York liberal made common cause on today's Morning Joe. They were outnumbered by Mika Brzezinski, Dan Senor and John Heilemann, all of whom opposed the arrest-the-pastor proposal on First Amendment grounds. Buchanan and Deutsch expressed disregard for the First Amendment implications. Buchanan asserted that if Pres. Obama were to follow his advice, conservatives would support him...

    newsbusters ^ | January 26, 2018 | Bill D'Agostino
    On Friday, an agitated Donny Deutsch reached the end of his rope on the set of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Deutsch, who appeared deeply affected by a clip of President Trump calling The New York Times “fake news,” eschewed the traditional combination of liberal snark and false superiority characteristic of the show’s other panelists, opting instead to go with unmitigated rage. Deutsch’s rant kicked off with the assertion that Republicans questioning the objectivity of the Mueller investigation were “undermining the FBI and undermining the news.” “Forget the obstruction,” he continued, “forget the actual charge. This continual assault on the things that...
  • Scarborough Puts Insults to Trump in Mouth of his Aides: “Bumpkin, Idiot, Pre-Dementia”

    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...
  • Mayor de Blasio questions President Trump's sanity after physical exam results

    01/17/2018 10:34:58 AM PST · by EinNYC · 25 replies
    Mayor de Blasio hopes President Trump is “sane,” even if he doesn’t think he’s acting that way. “I hope he is sane,” Hizzoner said when asked about Trump’s physical exam on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “His actions don’t suggest it.” The question from Mika Brzezinski — who Trump has called “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” — came a day after the White House released the results of Trump’s first official physical exam, in which he was found to be in sound physical and mental condition. Despite his concerns, de Blasio noted he was no Freud. “I don’t know, I’m not a psychiatrist...

    Donny Deutsch was last to speak during the opening segment of today’s Morning Joe. But from the clenched expression on his face, you just knew that he was loaded for bear. And sure enough, finally given his chance to comment on President Trump’s “s—hole” remark, Deutsch unloaded: “There’s a word we have to start to use with Donald Trump in addition to all the ‘crazy’ talk we have . . . He’s an evil man. We don’t talk about that a lot. We talk about he’s insane, and he’s crazy, and he’s this. That’s evil. This is just an evil,...
  • 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.

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    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...
  • Washington Post and Morning Joe on Wolff Book: ‘Just Every Page Really Rings True’

    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 the wake of the immense political conflagration that Michael Wolff’s upcoming book Fire and Fury has caused, Thursday’s Morning Joe was almost entirely consumed by discussion of all its salacious claims and their implications for the Trump White House. Even though multiple guest panelists on the show admitted to the shaky factual foundation for Wolff’s book and the unproven nature of many of his assertions, they nevertheless largely treated his testament as gospel. Much of Morning Joe’s coverage focused on dissecting the purported comments of Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. However, co-host...

    New Year’s Eve fireworks are over, but things were still exploding on the Morning Joe set today. Namely, the collective heads of the panel members. An episode of mass hysteria broke out over President Trump’s tweet that warned Kim Jong Un, in response to his threat, that Trump has a “much bigger and more powerful” button than Kim’s, and that “my button works.” First up was Mike Barnicle, who fretted over Trump’s “stability.” Next was John Heilemann, describing Trump as “demented and deranged.” Not to be outdone, Jon Meacham diagnosed Trump with a “narcissistic disorder,” while calling for an “intervention“—a...

    A guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” oddly declared Friday that she is worried President Trump may try to invalidate the 2018 midterm elections to avoid a Democratic Congress --- something the President can’t actually do. Regular co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were absent, but Republican pollster and Washington Examiner columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson more than made up for the extreme anti-Trump rhetoric that MSNBC viewers have come to expect from the liberal morning show. Soltis Anderson said she is worried that if Republicans face large losses in 2018, President Trump will fear having a Democratic Congress that may begin...

    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):

    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...

    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...
