    Joe Scarborough this morning picked a particularly personal way of attacking First Lady Melania Trump. On Morning Joe, accusing Melania of hypocrisy for choosing as a personal initiative an effort to combat cyber-bullying, Scarborough said: "Maybe she should start with Patient X or Patient Zero . . . when she sleeps with the worst bully in America."View the video here.

    Joe Scarborough attacked former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon for his address to California Republicans at their fall convention and said he is trying to "scam" the Republican party. The Morning Joe panel then discussed Bannon's war with the GOP. Scarborough said that the "yokels" who were booing George W. Bush at Bannon's speech were the same people attacking him when he stood up against Bush's Wilsonian foreign policy when he was in the Oval Office. Scarborough said that he and his co-host and fiance Mika Brzezinski have "warned" for two years that Donald Trump and Steve Bannon are...

    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.”

    MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on Friday rebuffed President Trump’s claim that the media was “biased” toward Hillary Clinton , saying he believes it actually “was pretty damn hostile” to the former secretary of State during last year’s campaign.

    He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Tuesday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. 'He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,' said Scarborough. 'The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.'

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made his first appearance on "Morning Joe" this week Wednesday to light into President Donald Trump for his press conference that blamed "both sides" for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Scarborough said Trump was now officially the president of the white nationalist movement after Trump received praise from former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke. "You had David Duke and other white nationalists actually praising the President of the United States for his words, and why not? He has now officially become the president … not only of America but also of the white nationalist movement,"...

    NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC host and former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough says he’s leaving the GOP. The “Morning Joe” co-host has become a sharp critic of President Donald Trump. Scarborough said Tuesday during an interview with CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert that “I’ve got to become an independent.” He appeared as a guest with his co-host and fiance, Mika Brzezinski, who recently was attacked in sharply personal terms by the president. Scarborough says it’s inexplicable why so many Republicans look the other way when Trump says or does something that betrays the party’s core values. He told Colbert...

    Watching the latest vulgar and sexist outburst of Donald Trump, who temporarily occupies the Oval Office and has now turned his foul mouth against Mika Brzezinski, let me suggest an idea that is offered very seriously. Former Republican congressman and current MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, who is a serious and principled conservative even if he makes too many snide comments about liberals from the upper East Side and Georgetown, should enter the GOP primaries and run against Trump in the 2020 presidential campaigns. While the thought of former president Trump someday glued to the television watching CNN and MSNBC and...

    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...

    Morning Joe has a mission: Take down the President. Watch the show—if you must—and you will get the idea rather quickly. Every story and every guest are carefully crafted to create a sense of chaos and inevitable failure around the Trump White House. And they have allies. Scarborough and company are actively aided and abetted by the coterie of D.C. media stalwarts who regularly appear on the show. We shouldn’t be surprised. The destruction of Republican presidents has been the white whale of almost every Washington journalist since 1974. Scarborough warned President Trump in February, “And as I always say,...

Joe Scarborough said Monday his pet rock could have toppled Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, thanks to all the baggage she carried into the contest. “My pet rock could have gotten 45 percent against Hillary Clinton,” Mr. Scarborough said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “Maybe if my pet rock didn’t make any gaffes in the three debates, my pet rock could have beaten Hillary Clinton.” Mr. Scarborough, a Republican, said the election was not about President Trump, who won the electoral college and lost the popular vote to Mrs. Clinton by a 48 percent...

    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....

    Thursday on Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough urged Donald Trump to realize that “the press always wins” in fights withpoliticians. In the same hour, Scarborough criticized an editorial in The Wall Street Journal for not focusing on, what he considered to be, the most important points following former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation. Scarborough huffed, “Donald Trump has tried to delegitimize the courts…Don't screw with federal judges it never turns out well for you. And the courts won that round. He is trying to delegitimize the press the press has risen up over the past couple of weeks. And...
