    '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...

    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.

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...

    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...

    Donald Trump’s sweeping victories Tuesday night move the Manhattan billionaire a step closer to winning the Republican nomination for president and to pulling off the most improbable political feat in modern American history. But Trump’s story is about more than a first-time candidate’s stunning rise. It is also about the humiliating defeat suffered by an increasingly isolated political and media class who still do not understand the causes and scope of Trump’s populist revolt. In his book “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010,” Charles Murray wrote about the rise of a new American upper class and the “narrow...

Joe continues in The Washington Post: Friday's freak show was as prepackaged as a rerun of "Celebrity Apprentice."

His performance was astounding.  Why astounding? Megyn grills ole Joe on the “perception” among conservatives that he is a “faux conservative” and a “RINO” because, among other things, he said of CPAC that it was filled with people who had “hate and resentment [and were] pushing talk radio” and that “you don’t get along with our own Hannity.”

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough interrupted Alex Wagner’s dismissal of the Obama administration’s secret Benghazi talking points on Thursday, telling her not to “insult our intelligence.” Wagner appeared on “Morning Joe” to discuss the Benghazi scandal, which reached new heights last week after unreleased emails revealed White House attempts to insulate President Obama from criticism. The emails, which were revealed by a conservative group’s lawsuit, has prompted the formation of a House select committee to investigate Benghazi. As she often does on her own MSNBC show, Wagner tried to wave off the controversy as much ado about nothing. “Everybody has focused...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough did not appear satisfied with his co-hosts’ reaction to yesterday’s remarks from White House Press Secretary Jay Carney over the newly released emails linking the White House to former United Nations Amb. Susan Rice’s talking points on the Benghazi attack. Scarborough unloaded on Donny Deutsch after his first reaction was to warn Republicans to not overreact to the news. The MSNBC host contended that this was not an appropriate reaction to the revelations about a White House not being forthright. “The spokesperson for the White House is saying a directive to Susan Rice about Benghazi is...

    MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough continues to indicate that he is taking the prospect of running for president in 2016 seriously by giving speeches in more early primary states. Just last week, Scarborough made the trek from New York City to Greenville, South Carolina to speak at the South Carolina Automotive Council’s yearly summit. A schedule for the event indicates that Scarborough addressed attendees during a morning speech at the Hyatt Hotel in Greenville on Feb. 20. Scarborough’s visit to South Carolina, the location of the “First in the South” primary, follows The Daily Caller’s report earlier this month that it’s widely...

    I was planning to write about this before Ed beat me to the punch so let me ask my two questions belatedly. One: Would this be a bona fide run to try to win the nomination or a niche candidacy a la John Bolton or Peter King? King and/or Bolton won’t run because they think they can win but because they want someone to answer Rand Paul on foreign policy and don’t trust any of the big-name candidates to do it effectively. Scarborough may feel the same way about Ted Cruz’s brand of tea-party conservatism. He won’t do any better...
