    Morning Joe is doing its best to deliver the Senate majority to the tender mercies of the Democrats by sowing fear, loathing, and mistrust among Republican voters in Georgia. On today's show, Joe Scarborough and Kasie Hunt floated the latest Trump conspiracy theory: that it's "entirely possible" that when President Trump goes to Georgia—ostensibly to rally support for the Republican Senate candidates in the runoff elections—he will, in fact, tell voters "write me in."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Morning Joe: 'Desperate' Trump Might Sell Secrets; Sic FBI on Him?

    For the liberal media, it's not enough to ensure that President Trump leaves office. They also want to cast the gravest kind of doubts about him, literally suggesting that he could be a bought-and-paid-for spy for foreign adversaries! On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and NBC News national security correspondent Ken Dilanian made these accusations: "National security sources say . . . Donald Trump fits the profile of a classic counter-intelligence risk." A former Bush official says "Donald Trump may well sell secrets . . . some foreign country will put Trump on retainer." And in the most extreme statement...

    They "shall suffer death." -- The first penalty mentioned in U.S. law for people guilty of treason. So, Joe Scarborough: what shall it be for President Trump and others you've suggested could be guilty of treason? Death, or one of the lesser penalties enumerated? Public executions, perhaps, on Inauguration Day? Wanna volunteer for the firing squad? On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough accused President Trump and his legal team, with the "silent approval" of Mitch McConnell, of attempting a "coup" to "overthrow the presidency" of Joe Biden....which hasn't been certified yet. Scarborough concluded his rant by melodramatically intoning: "None dare...
  • Smug Scarborough Gloats Over Beating Fox in Ratings... After 20 Years of Losing

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In recent weeks, Fox News has been losing audience, as some viewers have become disenchanted with the network's increasingly Trump-skeptical tone. Morning Joe has been a beneficiary of this trend, beating rival Fox & Friends in the ratings for the first time in almost 20 years. Joe Scarborough et al. thus have an interest in encouraging Fox News to continue down the path that has benefitted Morning Joe. And thus it was that on today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist lavishly praised FNC personalities who have criticized the efforts of the Trump team to contest the election results....

    Why the hell, indeed!? And stop being the toast of the Upper West Side and the Hamptons? Imperil domestic tranquility with Democrat wife and co-host Mika Brzezinski? Maybe even get "canceled" by a liberal establishment baying for Republican political blood? Former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough formally quit the Republican party in 2017, two months after President Trump took office. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said he's often asked if he will now become a Republican again. Responded Scarborough, "why the hell" would I?Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Scarborough: 'Election Was An Absolute Repudiation of Democratic Party Brand'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Sounding like a political consultant furious with his clients, Joe Scarborough went on an absolute tirade against the Democrats on today's Morning Joe, upbraiding them for having veered too far left. Scarborough railed that for the most part, "the election was an absolute repudiation of the Democratic party brand." And in his own words and that of others, Scarborough warned the Democrats that if they don't change course, they will get destroyed in the 2022 mid-term elections. Or as a Dem congresswoman he quoted colorfully put it, Democrats will get "f---ing torn apart." Get the rest of the story and...

    A new low for the liberal media. A major American network censoring the President of the United States on election night! Not only is Scarborough planning to do it: they're gleefully bragging about it! On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough announced that he, Mika Brzezinski, and Willie Geist will be leading election-night coverage on "Peacock," NBC's new online streaming service. Responding to Willie Geist's suggestion that President Trump might declare victory on election night [eliciting an uproarious laugh from Scarborough], Joe said: "We’re going to be doing coverage on Peacock, and we can assure you, if Donald Trump goes out...
  • Middle East Peace, Hello? Scarborough Says Kushner 'Ill-Equipped' For Any WH Task

    Discussing Kusher's performance on a task force on PPE procurement, Scarborough clucked that "Kushner [is] of course, ill-equipped to handle this or any other task he’s been given at the White House."Scarborough prefaced his slam by saying that, along with Kushner, Trump "never accomplished anything in their lives other than inheriting money from their fathers." Yeah, Trump's never accomplished nuthin' . . . other than that minor footnote of managing to make himself the most powerful person in the world. How could Scarborough possibly have discussed Kushner's White House performance without mentioning--not a word!--of his groundbreaking success in engineering the...

    MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough proposed nominating 73-year-old former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the Supreme Court next year should Democrats take the White House in next week’s election. “What a great birthday gift it will be next year for @HillaryClinton when she is one of the three new Supreme Court justices appointed through the Judiciary Reform Act of 2021,” Scarborough tweeted Monday following Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s historic confirmation.

    Sick Joe Scarborough's pitiful public disintegration continues. Yesterday, we caught him, his face contorted in an ugly snarl, screaming at Trump voters that they were "stupid" for continuing to support the president. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough took things a disgusting step further, saying of President Trump that: "Nobody's ever done so much to kill so many people. That is correct. Nobody."

    Urgent page for Mika Brzezinski! A few months back, you called a timeout for husband Joe Scarborough, taking him off the air for two weeks to presumably let him heal his fragile psyche. Mika, you've got to get poor Joe back to his safe place, STAT! On today's Morning Joe, a pitifully frazzled Scarborough lashed out at Trump voters. His face contorted in an enraged snarl [see screencap], Scarborough screamed at backers of the president. Saying "you can't be that stupid!", Joe was furious that people continue to support the president.Get the rest of the story and view the video...
  • Nervous Morning Joe Begs Dems: Don't Get 'Complacent' as Trump Could Win!

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Morning Joe devoted today's opening segment to urging Democrat voters not to get "complacent." Joe Scarborough and Kasie Hunt argued that there are troubling signs that President Trump might have hidden strength, and that we could be in for a repeat of 2016 if Democrats get complacent. They were largely riffing off a Thomas Edsall column in the New York Times, "Biden Is Not Out of the Woods." Edsall's point is that there is under-the-rader Trump strength in certain demographics, and in particular that many more Republicans than Democrats have registered in recent months in battleground states.

  • Dem Sen. Coons: Amy Coney Barrett ‘Even More Conservative Than Justice Scalia’ — ‘Qualified as a Judge’

    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” despite taking issue with the timing of the confirmation process for Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) acknowledged the pick was “qualified as a judge” for the nomination. “We should not be racing ahead with this partisan process,” Coon declared. “There is no precedent in our nation’s history for the Senate holding a confirmation hearing for a Supreme Court nominee this close, just 27 days, before a presidential election where people are already voting in more than half the states.”

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday asked if President Donald Trump could be guilty of “manslaughter” if he got someone at the White House sick and they eventually died as a result of his having the coronavirus. Brzezinski said she hopes it does not happen, but asked host Joe Scarborough if Trump is endangering the lives of members of the Secret Service by exposing them “to his deadly virus.”

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Is President Trump planning a murder-suicide with the American people? As hyperbolic, as literally insane, as that sounds, it's what Morning Joe was suggesting today. Morning Joe regular Ed Luce of the Financial Times kicked off the crazed assessment: "He’s saying, 'If I’m going to go down, I’m going to take you down with me.' I think there’s a death wish in his approach to this election that is the mark of somebody who's got a very dark mind."Joe Scarborough ran with Luce's "dark mind" warning, saying: It’s always been a fear about Donald Trump that if he was going...

    Right Journalism ^ | 09.30.2020 | Natalie Dagenhardt
    Last night was the first presidential candidate debate of the 2020 campaign season. The immediate takeaways were that: 1. Chris Wallace fought hard but lost the fight by decision to @realDonaldTrump 2. Biden’s favorite son was Beau, not Hunter. 3. Jill Biden hid behind a mask, Melania did not. 4. Democrats grooming is for mail vote election chaos, Trump knows it & will be ready. 5. Biden looks ill, Trump looked tanned, rested, and ready. 6. Biden allowed to interrupt, Wallace chastised Trump. 7. Police support Trump, none support Biden. 8. When Wallace stayed out of it, Trump won by...

    The liberal media are losing their collective minds over President Trump's behavior during last night's debate. But Mika Brzezinski found an odd way of striking a blow for civility on today's Morning Joe. She accused her competitors at Fox News Channel of having undergone a crude removal of part of their brains. MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Listen, there is an entire network that's covering this debate as if it were a proud moment for the president. And this situation has gone too far, with a bunch of lobotomized hosts and anchors, who are just waiting for his phone call. And it's pathetic.Get...

    Remember when the media got all bent out of shape that Trump called them the "enemy of the people"? Well, that's exactly what MSNBC was heavily suggesting today: if Trump loses, he might betray the United States, selling top-level intelligence to get out of debt. Pass it along! You'll never guess the impeccable source of Scarborough's scabrous speculation: none other than the palpably peccable Mark Brzezinski. Joe's brother-in-law. Mika's brother. A former Obama campaign advisor whom Obama rewarded with an ambassadorship. Oh, and let's not forget . . . a Biden fundraiser! Get the rest of the story and view...
  • Former MSNBCer: The System Is 'Designed' to Put Minorities 'At High Risk of Being Killed'

    09/24/2020 11:29:26 AM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 22 replies
    A very surprising twist in the discussion of the Breonna Taylor case on today's Morning Joe. It started in predictable fashion. "Civil rights lawyer" Maya Wiley said: "The problem that we have here is that the system is working the way it’s designed to work. Which puts black people, which puts Latinos, which puts Native Americans at very high risk of being killed." So the system is "designed" to endanger minority lives? A reprehensible accusation on Wiley's part. But then things took that surprising turn. Citing a lengthy New York Times investigative article, and speaking in his own right, Joe...

    Somebody call the SPCA: Joe Scarborough has, yet again, ridden a hobbyhorse into the ground! Regular readers of NewsBusters are only too familiar with Scarborough's tiresome habit of fixating on a word, and repeating it ad nauseam in the course of a segment. Scarborough's word o' the day this morning was "fascist," and with a little help from Mika Brzezinski and John Heilemann, that f-word was deployed to denounce President Trump no fewer than 19 times in the opening segment. View the video mashup to see Scarborough's shtick unfold. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
