In the wake of the scuffle that occurred between GOP Montana Congressional Candidate Greg Giafonte and Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, co-host Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe went directly after President Donald Trump. “You can draw a straight line from Republican candidates thinking that sort of behavior is okay when you have Donald Trump berating reporters throughout the entire campaign, suggesting terrible things, calling them -- using the Stalinist term "enemy of the people," He complained to panelist Mike Barnicle. “This is not a big leap from what the head of the Republican party is saying every day and what happened last night in Montana.”

Going after President Trump’s new budget, Joe Scarborough moved to tee up Senator Van Hollen of Maryland for a vicious attack on Wednesday’s edition of Morning Joe. “Chris, I’m a fiscal conservative,” Scarborough began innocuously, “But when I look at this budget, the blue print that the President has proposed, it is nothing less than hateful.” He then proceeded to expound upon the budget’s many vices crying out, “It guts basic services, it slashes cancer research, it slashes health care for the poor, it slashes money for rural hospitals, it slashes money for rural hospice care, it slashes money for anything involving health care in rural America!”

In the midst of a terror attack and President Trump’s travels abroad, the fun-filled cast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe still found the time to bash the President’s new budget on Tuesday.  Meeting with Senator McCaskill of Missouri they discussed at length the horror that would ensue were the budget to be brought into existence. Scarborough lamented the ‘savage’ cuts to different government programs before discussing the fate of McCaskill’s constituents,“Rural hospitals will be obliterated by these budgets that will not only severely curtail health care for Americans in rural America, but also as you were just saying, will also slash jobs from those communities, in communities that can't afford more job loss.”

Thursday on Morning Joe, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski spent a large part of the show discussing Sean Spicer’s reaction to reporter April Ryan during Tuesday's White House press conference. This prompted each of them to question his "stability" and "credibility." Brzezinski introduced the segment with: “Yesterday I was questioning Sean Spicer's credibility because I really think it's at risk, in jeopardy or shot. If you really think about it and go through kind of a time-line. Now you might want to add questioning his stability. In yesterday's press brief– did you see him yesterday? He kind of snapped.”

Monday on Morning Joe, the topic of discussion was Maureen Dowd’s column in the New York Times concerning Trump’s presidency. Co-host Mika Brzezinski, prompting a discussion, introduced and read the column aloud. The Morning Joe crew delighted in a metaphor of the Trump administration “eating its own tail.”

Brzezinski related, “Maureen Dowd really kind of sort of crystallizes what it is we are seeing on one level, the psychological part of Trump and why he’s doing what he is doing or maybe he doesn't know why and maybe he doesn't even like the job..."

You didn't need to have the sound working while viewing MSNBC's Morning Joe today to know things were not going well for Hillary Clinton. The sad looks on the faces of hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough pretty much revealed the story. A sense of gloom had descended upon the set of Morning Joe as Mika led off detailing the latest drip, drip, dripping of Hillary scandals. Then Joe joined added to the mournful mood by noting how the polls have been tightening in recent days. This was all in stark contrast to the upbeat mood of just a few weeks ago when Hillary was so far ahead in the polls that they were practically declaring Donald Trump's political funeral.

In the aftermath of the Clinton/Warren rally in Cincinnati, MSNBC correspondents hailed the “magic” of what was apparently more like a “rock concert” than a campaign event. On Tuesday, Morning Joe exhibited more of the same as they obsessed over Clinton and Warren’s “really good chemistry.” Yes, another MSNBC groupie took the compulsive idolization to another level, as host Joe Scarborough likened Warren to rock n’ roll legend Led Zeppelin:

If you want Chris Matthews to change his mind, just wait a minute. In just over a minute on Morning Joe today, Matthews changed his election prediction from agreeing with Joe Scarborough that Trump would win the Iowa caucuses and that Bernie Sanders would squeak out a victory to changing his prediction to a win by Hillary Clinton. However, the most fascinating part of his quick change of prediction was his frozen face when put on the spot by Scarborough as weird undulations played out over the surface. A body language expert could have a field day analyzing what was going through the Hardball host's mind while he remained uncharacteristically quiet during his deep think face freeze:

On Friday’s edition of Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski shared her shock when found out she might be raising a young republican, but her evidence is a little suspect. “I noticed this when my daughter was twelve she started to become selfish and money grubbing… And I said, “oh my gosh, I got a Republican in the family.””
