  • Morning Joe's Doomsday Scenario: Biden Implodes, Warren Wins, Then Loses to Trump

    09/11/2019 8:28:27 AM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 95 replies
    The Morning Joe folks are afraid—very afraid. They painted a Democrat doomsday scenario this morning in which Joe Biden would implode, Elizabeth Warren would win the nomination . . . and proceed to lose to President Trump. According to Joe Scarborough, behind the scenes among Democrat insiders, "everybody" says Biden's campaign is a "slow-motion train derailment," and "they believe, and many fear, that Elizabeth Warren is moving toward this nomination."

  • Mika Brzezinski: Warren Won the Debate by Being 'Aggressive' and 'Pissed Off'

    Just what Democrats need in 2020: another angry, aggressive, "pissed off" woman . . . If Democrats were smart, they would have one, cardinal criterion when it comes to picking their presidential candidate: who has the best shot at defeating President Trump. But Mika Brzezinski seems more interested in choosing a champion for her brand of in-your-face feminism. And thus it was on today's Morning Joe that Mika declared Elizabeth Warren the big winner of last night's debate because "she was aggressive, she was pissed off."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Morning Joe Claims Buttigieg 'Mainstreams' Democrats, Ignores Hard-Left Positions

    Has the liberal media ever met a Democrat it couldn't characterize as a centrist? Take Barack Obama. He had the most liberal voting record in the Senate. But that didn't stop Politico, for example, from in 2008 publishing "Obama’s steady centrism." That same kind of false advertising was on display on today's Morning Joe regarding Pete Buttigieg. The panel was gaga over Buttigieg's town hall performance of last night on Fox News, leading Joe Scarborough to declare: "This guy is going to play an important role in the mainstreaming of the Democratic Party for many years to come. And believe...
  • Gaffe? Kirsten Gillibrand on CBS: Abortion is a 'Life and Death' Decision

    It was a stunning admission for a hardcore abortion backer to make. Kirsten Gillibrand has described abortion as a "life and death" decision that women should have the right to make. Gillibrand, the junior senator from New York, and a presidential candidate who is barely registering in the polls, made her astonishing recognition of what abortion is really about on today's Face the Nation. Gillibrand thus implicitly acknowledges that there is a human "life" at stake in abortion. Yet she wants to give women the virtually unfettered power to choose "death Get the rest of the story and view the...
  • Morning Joe Adores 'Mayor Pete,' Swipes at Hillary, Beto

    "Hero." "Echoes of the Kennedys." "Very inspiring." "Good in every way." "Witty, charming, human, compassionate." You get the idea. In the wake of his announcement speech of yesterday, today's Morning Joe was a veritable Pete Buttigieg love-in. In addition to Joe and Mika singing his praises, all the panelists joined in the chorus. And beyond the glorification of Buttigieg, there were pointed shots taken at the candidacies of Hillary Clinton and Beto O'Rourke. Donny Deutsch, who called Buttigieg a "hero," said that no one would have used the word for Hillary. And Mika suggested that "putting it kindly," Democrats "missed...

    How do you know Pete Buttigieg is seen as a real threat to Kamala Harris and other "diverse" candidates seeking the Dem presidential nomination? Because he's coming under attack by the MSM's diversity crowd. Joy Reid devoted a segment of her MSNBC show this morning to decrying what she framed as the excessive attention being paid to "the B's": Biden, Bernie, Beto and Buttigieg. MSNBC political contributor Jason Johnson [also editor of the racial-grievance websiteThe Root] singled out "Mayor Pete" for criticism. Here was Johnson: "It's Beto, Biden and Buttigieg. I mean, everybody's been kissing his butt, too. It's amazing...

    What kind of weird Republicans does Mika Brzezinski know? On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski claimed that after 'Mayor Pete' Buttigieg appeared on yesterday's show, "I was surprised by the number of Republicans who reached out to me, saying, I'm going to support him. Because I'm looking for someone." Really? What kind of Republican is "looking for someone" like Buttigieg, who has these straight-down-the-line liberal positions on the issues?

    Time for Teresa to dust off her recipe for gin-soaked raisins? Of all the Dems vying for the presidential nomination, Joe Scarborough has singled out one who's not even in the race as the person who not only could, but would, beat President Trump in 2020: John "Liveshot" Kerry. [snip] Said Scarborough: "John Kerry, if he ran, would win. That's all I'm going to say. That's all I'm going to say. He would be the 46th president of the United States if he announced today he was running. And nobody could stop him." Get the rest of the story and...

    [snip] On Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. The topic was Kamala Harris's presidential prospects. Tiffany Cross of The Beat DC was first up. After claiming that Harris's record as a prosecutor made her suspect among African-American men, she said: TIFFANY CROSS: The African-American community expects more from people who look like us, particularly a candidate who represents us . . . She needs to find a strong, black man advocate who can be in her corner at some point in the campaign -- at any space in her campaign, I would say, that's my key advice: find a prominent...

    Will liberal outlets like Politifact fact check the geography-challenged Bernie Sanders? Socialists like Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aren't big on math. It just gets in the way of setting utopian, unachievable goals. Take Sanders today. At the very beginning of his formal announcement video, Sanders set this goal: "an unprecedented, grassroots campaign of one million active volunteers in every state in our country."Um, just a little problem there, Bernie. The population of your own state of Vermont is only 627,000. How can you possibly not know that? And there are five other states with populations under one million. So, yeah,...

    Democrats are starting to figure out that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving . . . to Republicans. A few days ago, Nancy Pelosi disdainfully dismissed Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal as "the green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?” On today's Morning Joe, there was consensus condemnation of Ocasio-Cortez's opposition to NYC's deal with Amazon to establish an HQ in NYC, which contributed to Amazon's decision to cancel its plans. Donny Deutsch put it in starkest terms, saying Ocasio-Cortez is "extremely dangerous," and "does not know what...
  • Scarborough Warns 2020 Dems: Listen to Trump El Paso Speech and Realize You Have 'Uphill Battle'

    Don't get Joe Scarborough wrong: he detests Donald Trump as much as ever, and will surely do whatever he can to help defeat him in 2020. But in a triumph of realism over desire, on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough warned Democrats that beating Trump won't be easy. As evidence of the daunting task facing Dems hoping to take Trump down, Scarborough urged Dems to listen to the "strong" closing segment of President Trump's speech in El Paso last night. JOE SCARBOROUGH: There was a closing argument, and whoever wrote it, wrote a strong closing argument. And any Democrat that thinks...

    "Sudden Respect" is our NewsBusters topic category for situations in which the liberal media suddenly lavishes praise on a conservative because he is now criticizing fellow Republicans or conservatives. Maybe we need a new category: "Sudden Disrespect," to cover cases in which the MSM turns on a Democrat who dares to not march in liberal lockstep. Joy Reid provided a perfect example of the phenomenon on her MSNBC show today. Her guest was Bill Burton, who was a bosom buddy of the liberal media back when he was one of the earliest members of Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, later...

    Sounding more like a feminist fan than a "correspondent," Kasie Hunt has enthused over the proliferation of women candidates in the 2020 Dem field. Appearing on today's Morning Joe, MSNBC correspondent Hunt said it was a "real victory" that the fact that Harris is the third woman [along with Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard] to have announced her candidacy is "unremarkable." Sounds like "correspondent" Hunt is cheering for Team Woman. As for Harris's campaign strategy, if you're a working-class man, don't hold your breath waiting for Kamala to come knocking at your door. Hunt said that Harris is basically writing...

    Barnicle on Biden 2020 bandwagon? After Morning Joe played a clip today of Joe Biden, on The View, giving encouragement to Meghan McCain regarding her father’s illness, Mike Barnicle, choked with emotion, said: “The country is in real need of someone with empathy, and compassion, and clarity. Someone who knows what it’s like to suffer a loss. To be wounded. To reach out to others. To be human. That’s the source of Joe Biden’s strength. That’s what you saw just now.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
