  • 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...

    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,...

    Former Florida Rep. 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...

".@JoeNBC As #potus @realDonaldTrump personal attorney, I know who has his taxes," Cohen tweeted Wednesday. "You better have proof to back up your claim and big mouth!"

    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....

    Heilemann: Trump's War On Media "Incitement" For An Oklahoma City Bombing Posted By Ian Schwartz On Date February 20, 2017 Former Bloomberg TV host John Heilemann said Monday on MSNBC's Morning Joe that he is worried that President Trump is inciting "elements in our country that may go ahead and do something" on the scale of the Oklahoma City bombing. Heilemann is afraid that when Trump calls the media the "enemy of the people," that someone may take that "seriously" and use it as a motive to commit an act of domestic terror. "He has been waging war on the...

    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...

    On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough ripped as “repulsive” Sean Hannity’s “bromance” with Julian Assange, and more generally criticized the Republican change of heart on Wikileaks. Background on the evolution of Hannity’s views on Assange here [note: from Daily Beast.] Scarborough noted that when Wikileaks divulged information about a CIA operation some years ago, Assange became the Republican “enemy #1.” In 2010, Donald Trump himself tweeted that WikiLeaks was “disgraceful” and that there “should be death penalty or something.” View the video here.

    Typically, MSNBC isn’t a place you go to find a fair opinion about Donald Trump. They have made it pretty clear over there that they aren’t interested in defending Trump on anything. However, every once in awhile over at ‘Morning Joe’ we hear a voice of reason. Joe Scarborough could barely contain himself when he was remembering how Hillary Clinton bashed Trump over his comments about respecting the election results. She ran around for weeks warning us about how Trump would never accept defeat and how silly he was for talking about voter fraud. Now she’s doing exactly what she...

    'Morning Joe' host Joe Scarborough notes that the latest NBC/WSJ poll showing Clinton 7 points higher than she was last week, for a total of 14 points ahead of Donald Trump "couldn't have been more cooked." "It could not have been cooked more to get the result they got," he asserted. He added: "So last week, we were saying why didn’t anybody take polls after debates, right? And they didn’t for a long time. This NBC-Wall Street Journal poll — we work here and we love working here, we love this place — they take the poll the second the...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said Monday that an independent conservative candidate on Monday will announce a challenge to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "It does appear that there is going to be a well-funded independent candidate," Scarborough said on "Morning Joe," without providing a name. Scarborough, a former GOP congressman from Florida, said the candidate would aim to get on 20 to 30 state ballots.

    Scarborough said Friday on "Morning Joe" that Donald Trump has become too toxic for the GOP's congressional candidates this year. "The center cannot hold when you have the speaker of the House [Paul Ryan] calling the Republican nominee a racist but saying he's still endorsing the nominee," he said. "It is so bizarre on its face that you have people chuckling in the background." Scarborough referenced the often tense relationship Ryan has had with Trump on foreign and domestic policy issues as well as the tone of the celebrity businessman's campaign.

    Couldn’t Joe Scarborough have waited until after Barack Obama gave his DNC speeches tonight before he began gushing over him? Apparently not. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough, pre-lauding Obama’s speech-to-be, said “you know when you’re watching a great movie . . . and you can see where it’s going, and you sort of start smiling?” But it wasn’t just Obama’s as yet unspoken speech that had Scarborough excited. “You look at that lineup: it’s absolutely extraordinary,” enthused Joe. In addition to Obama, tonight’s line-up consists of Michael Bloomberg, Tim Kaine and Joe Biden. Yes, when it comes to oratory that...

    Some U.S. officers in Baghdad believe the Obama administration is rushing plans for a Mosul offensive so it takes place before the November presidential election, a retired general says. Retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael D. Barbero said his contacts in Baghdad have relayed the concerns to him, fearing there is now an “artificial timeline” for what promises to be by far the toughest battle in the war against the Islamic State in Iraq.

    Saudi Arabia was funding Muslim radicalism in mosques and charities at the time the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers were gathering in the United States and making contacts with Saudi nationals, according to a declassified intelligence document. To jihad watchers, the paper confirms their charges that the Saudi government and its wealthy citizens fund extremist teachings in America. To this day, the kingdom is pressing its harsh Wahhabi Sunni Islam on American Muslims as it seeks to spread Islam around the world, they say. In the document, one Saudi who was receiving money from Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Riyadh’s ambassador to...

Klausutis, 28, was a Scarborough staff member who died July 20, 2001, when she hit her head after experiencing heart arrhythmia, according to a medical examiner's report, news reports and family members. Echoing the official findings, one family member told The Miami Herald there was no foul play. But some observers sought to make Klausutis' death a political issue, comparing it to the Chandra Levy intern scandal tied to former California...
