In yet another unbelievable display of liberal media bias, Morning Joe guest and Princeton Professor Eddie Glaude took to comparing Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Fugitive Slave Act on Monday morning. Glaude's line of questioning was in line with the modern left, for which the abolishment of I.C.E. has been a goal and has even been demanded from both members of the House and Senate Democrats.
On Tuesday's Morning Joe, former Republican Congressman turned MSNBC host Joe Scarborough responded to fiance Mika Brzezinski's attacks on former New York City Mayor and President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani by declaring: "Throw grandpa from the train, alright he needs to go home."
In another blatant display of just how out of touch the liberal media has become since the election of President Trump, on Monday's Morning Joe, MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski took turns laughing at the incredible economic progress that has been made under Donald Trump.
In an age where the media has come under unprecedented levels of scrutiny for slanted reporting and bias, CNN has chosen to stick to the issues. Particularly, that of a video where President Trump politely asks for a Coca-Cola.
On Monday, CNN Global Affairs analyst Max Boot claimed that the tyrannical Islamic Republic of Iran was more "stable and rational than the President of the United States." It's particularly disturbing when a media pundit finds the democratically elected President of the United States more troubling than a dictatorial regime that has routinely violated human rights, especially in regards to its interactions with religious minorities, gays, and women.
On Monday, Tulane history Professor Walter Isaacson took to the airwaves of MSNBC's Morning Joe to condemn President Trump. The swipe began by Isaacson making the bold declaration that Donald Trump was "a weaponized virus" and that he's been "weaponized over the years by Vladimir Putin to go in and do Putin's bidding."
Apparently, no idea is too crazy on Morning Joe. In a bizarre call to action on Wednesday, senior contributor and MSNBC veteran columnist Mike Barnicle took to the airwaves to declare his support for a rewrite of the Constitution and a replacement of the democratically elected President of the United States.
On Friday, Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski and contributor Donny Deutsch took to the airwaves to condemn Trey Gowdy and the Republican Party.
Unsurprisingly, on Monday, MSNBC's Morning Joe returned to its usual Trump bashing. The smears started with a charge from host Joe Scarborough that, “the central defining nature of his presidency now has to do with attacking people who are not white.”
The fuming, unhinged liberals at MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday came completely unglued as they compared Donald Trump’s voters to Nazi's and the President himself to madman Kim Jong-un. It began with Mika Brzezinski proclaiming that President Trump “will forever be remembered as the president who traumatized little children.”
In yet another display of liberal media fearmongering, MSNBC's Morning Joe took to the airwaves on Monday to declare that the children of illegal immigrants were being placed in "dog kennels" while at detention facilities along the U.S. southern border.
On Thursday, Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough took to the airwaves to repeat the claim from Boston Globe reporter Liz Goodwin that "children are being told and their parents are being told that they're being taken off to the showers. And that they'll return. And they never return."
Not even 24 hours removed since the most potentially impactful foreign policy summit in a generation, the mainstream media has returned to its Trump-bashing obsession. On Wednesday morning, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough declared: “Primary voters in the Republican Party have devolved into a Trumpist cult.”
A broken clock is right twice a day, right? Well it appears on Monday’s edition of Morning Joe that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough watered his long-neglected and often-forgotten blue collar roots. Firstly, he reminded the largely anti-Trump audience of Sunday night's Tony Awards that the “low light of the evening” was “brought to you by Robert de Niro.”
In yet another blatant display of liberal media bias, we humbly submit for your consideration interview questions for Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill from Thursday's on Morning Joe. Interviewing a member of the prestigious Senate Armed Services Committee should be a real chance to dig for details about the chance for peace in Korea or perhaps they even ask her about the collapse of ObamaCare in Missouri? Wrong.
On Friday, Morning Joe hosts took turns tearing into former New York City Mayor and Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. Again, they went off the rails after replaying a clip of his recent criticisms of porn star Stormy Daniels, who recently accused President Trump of having a consensual affair with her in 2006.
Following a soundbite of Giuliani questioning the credibility of Daniels, Brzezinski seemed to lack the universal understanding that the adult film actress has a long history of selling herself for profit and blasted Giuliani as a "misogynistic fool" for daring to question her motives.
In an interview on MSNBC's Live with Katy Tur on Wednesday, Los Angles Times immigration reporter Cindy Carcamo informed us that it indeed was a crime to enter the country illegally! Who would have thought?
In an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday, Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) was unable to name the leader of the Democratic Party. Just two years removed after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton failed to inspire Barack Obama's coalition of supporters, the lawmaker seemed to admit that the party again had found itself at a standstill.
On Monday, NBC anchors tore into former President Bill Clinton's response to the #MeToo movement in light of his contentious interview with reporter Craig Melvin on the Today show.
