Thursday, June 22, was marked, sadly, by the funeral services for American student Otto Warmbier following his captivity in North Korea. While others mourned the loss of this young man’s life at the hands of the tyrannical communist regime, MSNBC’s Morning Joe opted for a different route. How you ask? Why, by comparing President Trump to North Korea, of course! In an exchange with co-host Mika Brzezinski, Random House editor Jon Meacham compared the actions of Donald Trump at an Iowa rally to, “regimes like North Korea, where the dear leader speaks and we’re all supposed to salute.”
Thursday’s Morning Joe took the time to devote a whole segment to a new Netflix documentary entitled Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press. In discussion with the director, Brian Knappenberger, the panel lamented the supposed deplorable attacks by Donald Trump and his supporters on the media and First Amendment. Time was taken to mourn the demise of the "critical" news site Gawker, dead at the hands of Hulk Hogan, and Trump supporter Peter Thiel. “This seems so important,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said reverently of the conversation, “I am beginning to feel like everything he [Trump] does...is far more serious than we could ever imagine.”
Television’s favorite news couple, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, continued to push the mainstream media narrative that Trump is responsible for the nation’s toxic political climate on Monday's Morning Joe. Reading from a New York Times piece by Frank Bruni, Brzezinski quoted, “Lately Trump and his children have been playing the victims of all of this, but save your tears. He has been an enormous part of the problem.” She was all too happy to agree with the sentiment, stating, “I think the difference now is that the President is a part of it....I think it’s fueling the fire.”
In the wake of the attack which injured Congressman Steve Scalise and several others, the mainstream media rushed to explain away the narrative that the shooter, James Hodgkinson, was a radical progressive who hated Republicans. They opted instead to lay the blame at the feet of a toxic political environment created by none other than President Donald Trump. Co-host Mika Brzezinski obsequiously did so on Thursday’s Morning Joe when she proclaimed, “What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this President is doing on issues of decency, on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news.”
Today is June 14, the birthday of President Donald Trump. Although Joe Scarborough is a big opponent of Trump, he at least wished him a "Happy Birthday" (with a caveat). Unfortunately that was a normal civility too far for his Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinsky who scrunched up her face in distaste and shook her head negatively when invited by Scarborough to join in the birthday wish. So much for even an attempt at the "civil discourse" that liberals were demanding a few years ago before the era of angrily cursing became their new idea of discourse.
Co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were still steaming about the Trump cabinet meeting on Wednesday’s Morning Joe. “They do not take an oath to Donald Trump,” Scarborough screeched, “They take an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States of America and if they don't understand that, they need to leave.” Brzezinski concurred before snobbishly stating later, “Talk about the lack of diversity in the White House, let me just say there are no real men in the inner circle of the White House, none at all.”
Tuesday’s Morning Joe almost immediately began with a complete freak-out over the Trump administration’s cabinet meeting on Monday. Over the course of the meeting, cabinet members took time to thank and praise the President for his leadership and vision. “That is just sick,” co-host Mika Brzezinski declared in a disgusted tone. Lover and fellow co-host Joe Scarborough eagerly followed the lead of his fiancé, exclaiming, “That is the most sick, shameful, pathetic, un-American, autocratic display.” The duo then proceeded to decry the perceived brown nosing while seemingly forgetting entirely their own instances of blatant sycophancy.
Prior to the hearing of former FBI director James Comey, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski launched into an uncontrolled rant over her hatred of President Donald Trump. Her tirade proved so great as to create visible discomfort among other members of the show’s panel including lover and co-host, Joe Scarborough. Scarborough himself became so uncomfortable that he at one point even ventured to state, “I need an eject button.”
The panelists of MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday agonized over possible repercussions likely to result from President Trump’s tweet attacking London Mayor for his comments that Londoners ‘have no reason to be alarmed.’ “It’s absolute nonsense,” Economist editor-in-chief Zanny Minton Beddoes proclaimed before smugly stating, “There’s been a huge swell of support for Sadiq Khan and it obviously reflects very badly on the President. It makes the Brits just think what planet is he on? It's really damaging.”
Many Americans may have been wondering what the media world was coming to when Anderson Cooper excoriated Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord, stating that Lord would defend the President even “if he took a dump on his desk.” Well, the excrement dynamics continued anew at MSNBC on Thursday's Morning Joe as a discussion over covfefe devolved into a talk about poop.
Prior to his appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to sponsor his new book, co-host Mika Brzezinski praised Senator Al Franken as following in the steps of previous US political titans Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. The interview that then followed was one of softballs and grounders as the panel incessantly gushed and awed over the Senator’s presence. It was a sharp contrast to the reception later given to Senator Mike Lee of Utah.
Many Americans were horrified to learn last night of the news that comedian Kathy Griffin had posted a tweet depicting herself with an effigy of the bloody, severed head of President Trump. In a world now full of real-life beheadings instigated at the behest of Islamic terrorists, drug cartels, and others, one would think that such a story might be considered “newsworthy.” Co-host Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s Morning Joe disagreed, however, on the basis that the story was ‘too gross’ and ‘not worth doing.’
