Joe Scarborough: not just an MSNBC host anymore. Now a Biden campaign adviser . . . On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski reads from Scarborough's Washington Post column of yesterday, in which he counseled Joe Biden to stick to his script. The column, read by Mika, included this line: "If you think I am trying to send Biden a message with this column, you are correct. Too much is riding on next year’s election for any Democratic candidate to shoot from the hip rhetorically."
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says "I know" the Roberts Supreme Court won't overturn Roe v. Wade, in light of a recent poll showing only 13% of Americans favor overturning it. Refusing to apply the Constitution, bowing instead to the public sentiment of the day, would represent an appalling abdication of the Court's duty.
Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, and Willie Geist offer surprising praise of President Trump's speech on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, calling it "really good, terrific," and the "most powerful speech" he's given as POTUS.
Reacting to yesterday's short-lived meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Morning Joe panel hurls a string of insults at President Trump: "stinks, complete idiot, pathetic."
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough calls on billionaire Tom Steyer to "get some lawyers" to work for the disbarment of Attorney General William Barr. Steyer has spent tens of millions of dollars on TV ads calling for the impeachment of President Trump.
Joe Scarborough proclaimed his opinion on the situation regarding the White House visit of the Boston Red Sox, celebrating their 2018 World Series victory. All the players of color, with the exception of one Cuban-American, have announced that they are not going. All of the white players are going. Scarborough says that under the circumstances, he wouldn't go, and he wishes that one white team leader would announce that although he would like to go, he will not, and would instead "stay back" with his teammates of color.
The cast of MSNBC's Morning Joe spent much of Wednesday's show arguing that it would be foolish for Democrats to launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist, along with most of the panelists, concurred that Democrats would be wise to focus on winning in 2020.
The journalists on Monday's Morning Joe offered very little push back to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as he appeared to push his city's own version of the Green New Deal (GND). Co-host Joe Scarborough began asking "What are you doing" and how would New York's effort "provides a road map for Democrats and independents and some progressive or forward thinking Republicans nationwide?"
As the collusion narrative finally has finally lost oxygen, President Trump's opponents in the media are moving on to whether or not he obstructed justice. Of the ten alleged instances of obstruction, some serve as potentially more damaging for Trump than others. While others have pondered whether verbs such as "attempted" constitute obstruction that could justify impeachment or whether Trump aides thwarted his worst impulses, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough was certain on Friday that Trump had obstructed justice.
MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough still thinks of himself as a conservative and defender of constitutional norms. On the Thursday run-up to Attorney General William Barr's press conference and the release of the Mueller Report, the self-appointed defender of true conservatism managed to play both a Democratic communications strategist and call for a change in the Constitution, because Barr is Roy Cohn reincarnated.
"In the wake of Pete Buttigieg's announcement speech of yesterday, Morning Joe is filled with praise of him, calling him a "hero," with "echoes of the Kennedys." The panel also criticizes the candidacy of Hillary Clinton, and Mika Brzezinski suggests that the notion that Beto O'Rourke is the Kennedyesque candidate is "contrived" whereas Buttigieg feels "much more natural" and real.
MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough would like viewers to know that he is not a fan of Attorney General William Barr. On Thursday's show, Scarborough launched into Barr for telling a Senate subcommittee that, "I think spying did occur" against the Trump campaign and he was going to look into it to make sure there was nothing nefarious going on.
