  • Nervous Morning Joe Begs Dems: Don't Get 'Complacent' as Trump Could Win!

    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.”
  • Brzezinski on Trump Returning to WH from COVID Bout: ‘Isn’t This Manslaughter?’

    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.”
  • Morning Joe: Trump Has 'Death Wish,' Will 'Take Americans Down with Him'

    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.
  • Morning Joe Regular: Preferring Trump On Economy Is 'Selfishness'

    Are you worried that—given his support for higher taxes and the economy-nationalizing Green New Deal—Joe Biden could jeopardize your retirement and ability to provide for your family? Do you therefore support President Trump? Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. wants you to know that your attitude is nothing less than "selfishness." On today's Morning Joe, Princeton prof and Morning Joe regular Glaude said that the Trump campaign has a double-edged strategy: appealing to non-college educated whites with "grievance and fear," and to suburbanites "because Joe Biden and the radical left will jeopardize their economic well-being, their 401(k)s and the like" who would...

    Princeton Professor Eddie Glaude warned viewers of MSNBC's Morning Joe show not to allow selfishness to lure them into voting for Trump. "I know a lot of you are tempted to place your own prosperity ahead of social justice and vote for Trump's reelection," Glaude said. "Well, DON'T DO IT!" "Granted, Trump's economic policies of deregulation and tax cuts have helped spur a booming economy," the Professor admitted. "Unemployment was at historic lows for minorities before the pandemic and the lockdowns hit. Likewise, stock prices have rallied back to where they were in January—enriching every person who has an IRA...

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” namesake Joe Scarborough on Tuesday scolded Trump supporters who attend crowded rallies amid the coronavirus pandemic, comparing the “mass insanity” to people who participated in the notorious Salem witch trials of the 1690s. Trump spoke to a raucous crowd near Dayton, Ohio, on Monday night, but the MSNBC host doesn’t think the event will be remembered favorably. “This is going to be looked back upon, it really is, really, it’s going to looked back upon, I think, the way that we look back at the Salem witch trials, where just mass insanity takes over a group of...

    “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough began his segment this morning, by asking Al Sharpton what his message to the “25 million peaceful protesters” about the remarks by “those people, who were chanting “they hope that they died?” Al Sharpton, the guy who openly called for killing cops in 1992, told Scarborough that the message of the BLM agitators is, “We are not anti-police, and we are certainly not for killing or shooting police.” He quickly switched gears, making himself and BLM the victims, saying, “We are there saying police should not be wrongfully shooting or killing civilians, particularly in the...
  • 'Conservative' Scarborough Echoes the Left: 'Working Class' Shouldn't Vote GOP

    Those ignorant working-class Republicans are just too dumb to realize they should be voting for us!That, in a nutshell, is a key Democrat kvetch when it comes to economics. Put in somewhat more academic terms, Democrats like to say that working-class Americans are "voting against their economic interests." The notion was made famous by leftist author Thomas Frank in his book, What's the Matter with Kansas? And the complaint has been echoed countless times since by a parade of progressives. [snip] Scarborough today also parroted that same classic leftist trope. It came in his Washington Post column that his wife...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Joe Scarborough opened today's Morning Joe with a grim, paternalistic, pursed-lip approach to the anti-Trump coronavirus spin coming out of the latest Bob Woodward book. That was in contrast to the sound-system-pegging screams he sometimes favors, which eventually led wife Mika Brzezinski to order him to take a two-week break from the show, presumably to rest his fragile psyche. At one point, Scarborough said: "Donald Trump says he didn't want Americans to panic. No, he just wanted to sit by and watch them die."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Don’t faint: Al Sharpton is actually right about something. – I’m not kidding. The old race-bating grifter actually uttered some true words on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday morning. From a story at the New York Post: The Rev. Al Sharpton on Tuesday slammed the nationwide call to defund the police as a “latte liberal” ideology. Sharpton made the comments on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” during a discussion about policing and a recent spate of violence in the Big Apple. “To take all policing off is something that I think a latte liberal may go for as they sit around the Hamptons...

    How dangerous have things gotten in the New York City under Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo? So bad that even Joe Scarborough has to grudgingly admit that things were a lot safer under Mayor Rudy Giuliani. So dangerous that even Al Sharpton has to oppose defunding the NYC police, saying that notion is something for "latte liberals" sitting around in the Hamptons. Those surprising statements were heard on today's Morning Joe. NYC resident Willie Geist was left as the sole defender of the city, claiming that, unlike others, he feels safe. But in a bit of unintended gallows humor,...

    s their preferred candidate crashes in national polls and the race tightens to a dead heat in Joe Biden’s must-win states, NeverTrump “conservatives” are once again taking their marching orders from Democrats. The death, destruction, and mayhem besieging Democratic-run cities across the country, NeverTrump dutifully recites, is all Donald Trump’s fault. Team Biden crafted the inane talking points to deflect concerns that the violence in cities such as Portland and Kenosha rapidly was backfiring on Democrats; scenes of angry mobs attacking Trump supporters, including Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and his wife, leaving the White House late Thursday night after the...
