  • Mika: Trump Family Members “Don’t Care” about Palestinian Deaths

    Excuse Hamas. Condemn Trump. That, in a nutshell, was Morning Joe‘s approach to the deaths of Palestinians who rioted during the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem yesterday. First up were Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, painting the Trump family as callously indifferent to the deaths: JOE SCARBOROUGH: Mika, for the rest of the world you actually saw an administration, a White House, and we’ll say it, since Ivanka Trump was there. A family. Completely out of touch with the realities of the region that they’re dealing with. And you know, you had . . . 58 people killed...
  • Scarborough: “Many West Wing Insiders Question Whether Trump Will Finish Term”

    Name names, Joe . . . On today’s Morning Joe, a shocking assertion was lost amidst the blather about Rudy Giuliani’s revelation that President Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen for the payment to Stormy Daniels. In his column in today’s Washington Post, Joe Scarborough praises the Rudy Giuliani who cleaned up a filthy, crime-infested NYC in the 90s and valiantly became America’s Mayor after 9-11. Scarborough wonders how Giuliani has gone from that to now serving as “Trump’s chump.” Scarborough says that even viewed as a cynical career move, Rudy’s decision to serve Trump as he has makes no sense given...
  • Don’t Be Mad at Wolf’s Sanders Jokes if You’ve Never Been Mad at Trump

    He has gone just as low, but she’s a comedian, not president, so she does deserve a bit more leeway when it comes to making jokes. At Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner, comedian Michelle Wolf made some jokes about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that have a lot of people, particularly on the right, very upset. ... Sanders was visibly upset the entire time, and many people on the right rushed to her defense — saying that Wolf’s jokes were inappropriate and an outrage. Here’s the thing, though: Many of those same people have absolutely no problem with...

    Disingenuous, or just clueless? You be the judge. On today’s Morning Joe, New York Times reporter Nick Confessore, apropos of Michelle Wolf’s line about Aunt Lydia and Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the correspondents’ dinner, said: “Mika, actually the joke was about lying and not her looks. I think the reference to Aunt Lydia was a reference to the character on that show. That’s my opinion.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Morning Joe Grudgingly Gives Trump Korea Credit — But Suggests He’s Demented

    Nice work — for a demented dude . . . That was the takeaway from today’s Morning Joe. On the one hand, Joe Scarborough and John Heilemann grudgingly gave President Trump credit for the apparent diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea. Scarborough, for example, said, “it’s hard not to look at all the bluster, and all the insults, and all the threats from Donald Trump, and not believe that that actually forced the North, and the South, to try to figure out a way to get together.” But a bit later, there was Scarborough suggesting that, contrary to Dr. Ronny Jackson’s...
  • Calling Trump “Stupid, Coward, Submissive,” Morning Joe Tries to Lure Prez Into Mueller Talk

    In February, Raw Story noted Joe Scarborough transparently trying to bait President Trump into agreeing to an interview with Robert Mueller by saying that the President’s lawyers think he’s “too stupid” to handle such a sit-down. Scarborough, with help from Mika Brzezinski and Donny Deutsch, was back at the Trump-baiting game today. In the opening segment, the trio repeatedly asserted that Trump’s lawyers think the president is “too stupid” to handle Mueller. Adding fuel to the provocation fire, they also suggested that Trump’s education isn’t as good as Mueller’s, and that Trump would be a “coward” and “very submissive” if...

    This actually came close to the classic line: “nice kids. Wouldn’t wanna see nuthin’ happen to them.” On today’s Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch and Joe Scarborough implored Michael Cohen to turn on President Trump. Deutsch, mentioning that he knows Cohen very well, said that he often tells him: “you’ve got to protect yourself, you’ve got to protect your family.” Scarborough said, “I just can’t imagine that he’s willing to sacrifice the well-being of his children for the well being of Trump’s children.” Replied Deutsch, speaking of his conversations with Cohen: “those words I used exactly.” Get the rest of the...
  • Morning Joe Outrage over Sinclair Segment, but Obama Nostalgic for Era When Left Controlled Media

    Liberals never complained when the news was controlled by a handful of outlets all spouting the same left-wing line. To the contrary, just last week, Barack Obama waxed nostalgic over those good old days: “It used to be in the United States that there were three television stations, basically everybody watched the same thing, everybody got their news from the same sources, so everybody more or less had a similar view of the world.” But now that the liberal monopoly of the media has been broken, suddenly the left is outraged and appalled. Today’s opening segment of Morning Joe was...

    'I've got kids that are older than they are. Who thinks that attacking children, who thinks that spreading false information about children which has not only been spread on conspiracy sites but also on mainstream media sights, who thinks that is going to help them get ahead politically when it's so obvious it's only going to blow up in their faces?' asked Scarborough. 'Let's add on attacking children who are two weeks out from hiding under their desk or watching their friends be shot by an automatic weapon,' pointed out Deutsch. So if you can't have empathy or sympathetic behavior...

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Given the anti-Trump rampage that Joe Scarborough has been on for months, you might have expected him to feast on Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes interview to vilify the president. Instead, on today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough expressed surprising skepticism. Scarborough said that instead of being interested in “truth, justice, and the American Way,” it looked like Daniels is simply out for: “a really big, fat paycheck for her from some publication.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    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 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...

    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 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...
