    “The Morning Joe’ co-hosts made it official during an intimate Saturday ceremony at the National Archives, in front of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, officiated by Rep. Elijah Cummings,” the publication said. It noted that this is the first time anyone got married in the U.S. National Archives, which was closed to the public Saturday night. It looks like a fancy event indeed. The longtime MSNBC colleagues later enjoyed “caesar salads, acorn squash veloute, and red wine poached eggs, followed by joue de boeuf, sautéed trout, roasted chicken breast, and gnocci Parisienne. Their family and friends raised their...

    Co-hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough tied the knot in a secret wedding ceremony officiated by Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) over the weekend, Vanity Fair reported on Sunday. The celebrity morning television hosts held an intimate ceremony attended by a handful of people on Saturday in Washington's National Archives, the first time a wedding has been held there, according to the magazine. They reportedly chose the quiet post-Thanksgiving date to keep the wedding under wraps. “We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe,” Brzezinski told Vanity...

"GROH-WARGO: And that is a very clear effort really exposing these issues. Because here’s the deal, whatever happens with our campaign, we’ve got to fix the system here in Georgia."

    As you'll see in the mashup, Morning Joe taunted President Trump today with a barrage of insults, casting the election results as a huge loss for the President, and depicting him as "freaked-out, weak, battered, confused." In the unkindest cut, Joe Scarborough sneeringly claimed: "He thinks he's going to stop his children, if they've done something wrong, from going to jail? They'll just be in state jail [instead of federal jail.]"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Such a magnanimous guy, that Joe Scarborough. He doesn't usually judge his friends, no matter how they vote. But not this year. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said that not judging friends is "a little harder to do in 2018." A Scarborough tweet that was displayed made clear what Joe had in mind: anyone voting for "Trump" [i.e., for Republicans] is voting for "lies," and "racism."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    "He'll get money from the Saudis. He'll make money from Putin when he gets out — that's why he's been Putin's lapdog. Donald Trump is all about money," the 'Morning Joe' co-host said on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.' MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough has a bold political prediction: he doesn't think President Donald Trump will run for re-election in 2020. "I don't think Donald Trump's going to run for re-election. He didn't want to be elected president, he didn't think he would be elected president. He didn't even think he was going to get the Republican nomination....

    Hey there, Democrat Senators Feinstein, Booker, Harris, Blumenthal, et al. Hope you enjoyed your time in the limelight during the Kavanaugh hearings. But sadly, dear Spartacus & Friends, the time has come to pay the bills—at the polls. On Morning Joe—notoriously no fan of things Republican—there was consensus today that the Kavanaugh hearings have provided a "huge bump" for the GOP, while amounting to a "disaster" for the Dems. The comments came after polling maven Steve Kornacki reported that Republicans have moved ahead in four key Senate races: Tennessee, Texas, Nevada, and Arizona. Get the rest of the story and...

    After Brett Kavanaugh was smeared as a gang rapist, after Feinstein's last-minute machinations, after having to endure lectures from Richard Blumenthal--Richard Blumenthal!--about "integrity," can you begrudge Republicans some celebration over the Kavanaugh confirmation? Yes--if you're the cast of Morning Joe. Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.

    Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski envision possibly four more years of Trump in 2020 — just not Donald Trump. “Ivanka Trump Is going to run for president,” Brzezinski declared during an on-stage conversation with editor David Remnick on opening night of the New Yorker Festival. Remnick did a double-take, asking them to explain the theory. “He’s got this obsession with positioning her,” Brzezinski said. “You can pull up her Instagram and she’s got these carefully composed sizzle reels, ,,, She’s going to all of the companies–” Scarborough interjected, “Giving speeches in front of the presidential seal.” He...

    There is truly nothing sacred anymore. Not awards shows. Not sporting events. Not John McCain’s funeral. Not even 9/11. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has declared that President Trump is a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It all began with a tweet to a column he wrote in The Washington Post on the eve of 9/11. “Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could,” Scarborough tweeted....

    In an opinion piece published in the Washington Post on Monday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough claims that President Donald Trump poses a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the September 11 attacks. Joshua Caplan of Breitbart breaks it down: "Scarborough’s piece, titled “Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could,” begins with the virulent Trump critic chronicling various foreign policy blunders committed by previous White Houses following the fateful terror attacks on September 11, 2001. The culmination of such “tragic lessons” — including then-President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq without...

And I think you’re going to see the press embracing a lot of these candidates on the far left.” Joe being Joe, he had to balance that with a shot at the president, adding, “you’re going to have Donald Trump race-baiting all the way to the fall.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Former President Obama deserves more credit for the strong U.S. economy than President Trump, according to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough. "Yeah, it's a strong economy," Scarborough told "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski. "But Mika, this is not an economy that Donald Trump gave us. This is an economy that's part of the seven year ongoing recovery." Scarborough also said this "isn't the greatest economy ever" and that it "isn't close to the greatest economy ever." "Barack Obama had more people getting jobs his last 16 or 18 months than they had jobs during Donald Trump's first 16 or 18 months," he...

Here’s Scarborough: “Donald Trump sat there, and was obsequious to Vladimir Putin . . . We all know that Vladimir Putin is holding something over Donald Trump. We do not know what it is. But we know it must be something extraordinary, because no rational politician, no rational president would act this way if he weren’t being blackmailed on some level . . .

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused President Donald Trump of forcing the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for the headlines. “Proving once again that only fools rush in, Trump forced a summit for cheap headlines,” Scarborough wrote. He added: “In the process, he gave legitimacy to the most oppressive communist regime on the planet, further damaged the United States and made himself look like a fool.” He also included a link to a Washington Post article that read, in part: “In a sharp signal that denuclearization negotiations with North Korea will be drawn out and difficult,...

    MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski comment on President Trump mocking John McCain and George H.W. Bush to the delight of crowds at his rallies: JOE: Mika, we can talk about Donald Trump. We have. But, again, at what point is there decency in the crowd where people stop cheering when he mocks a man who has brain cancer and who is -- again, fighting for his life? A losing struggle for his life. Or George H.W. Bush. A man who fought in World War II. Was shot down by the Japanese, served America overseas as ambassador...
  • Morning Joe: By Turning on Trump, Michael Cohen Would Become "Hero," Trump's "John Dean"

    In its everlasting quest to bring down President Trump, the MSM’s latest best hope is Michael Cohen. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Cohen said that he puts “my wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will. I put family and country first.” Trump foes are taking that to imply that, rather than being willing to take the proverbial bullet for Trump, Cohen is considering turning against the President. On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, speaking with Emily Jane Fox, biographer of the Trump children, suggested that Cohen could become Trump’s “John Dean,” the Nixon...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took a shot at both President Trump and his supporters Friday, labeling both as “openly racist.” The scathing comments during “Morning Joe,” which Scarborough co-hosts with Mika Brzezinski, came amid a highly controversial immigration debate over the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that led to children being separated from their parents after coming across the U.S. border. Scarborough leveled that people “cannot say, ’Oh, I’m just supporting him because he’s giving them hell in Washington.' No, he’s been openly racist, just like we said back in December of 2015, openly racist. “And if you support him, then...
