During Wednesday’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough and his panel reacted with scorn to President Trump’s Oval Office address. All told, the panel engaged in hyperbole; describing the Trump administration as a “Seinfeld presidency” and declaring the President himself a national emergency.
Since the government shutdown began in late December, the media have made sure to repeatedly lay the blame solely on President Trump and Republicans in Congress. Not only did the press refuse to place any responsibility for the budget impasse on congressional Democrats, but reporters actually touted the notion that liberal lawmakers had “no incentive” to compromise.
Between Monday evening and Wednesday morning, a significant number of journalists and regular commentators across CNN, MSNBC, and even Fox News have cited claims from a handful of flawed studies claiming that illegal immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than do American citizens. But, as previously documented by NewsBusters, the conclusions of these studies are highly questionable while a few studies have suggested a higher crime rate by illegals.
During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough and his panel predicted that the Republican Party will be “reduced to dust” if it continues to stand behind President Trump amid the government shutdown. After calling him a liar, Scarborough asked “why does this party continue marching over the cliff like lemmings behind a guy...whose approval rating is about 40 percent on an issue where 75 percent of Americans oppose the President?”
At what point does Trump Derangement Syndrome stop being handy shorthand for the liberal media's hatred of the President, and start being taken seriously as an actual mental disorder? The question arises after witnessing Joe Scarborough—seriously it would appear—raising on today's Morning Joe the possibility that Donald Trump "doesn't know how to read."
During Thursday’s edition of Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough brought up the well-worn topic of invoking the 25th Amendment. Apparently, a New Year does not mean that MSNBC hosts have come up with new talking points to use when expressing their disdain for President Trump.
Just when you thought the liberal media couldn't sink any lower in its deranged attacks on President Trump, along comes Donny Deutsch. On today's Morning Joe, Deutsch plumbed odious new depths with an allegation that Trump's last card is to prey on the sexual fears or insecurities of his supporters. Said Deutsch: "This is all [Trump] has left. That one metaphor, that one thing that talks to that 39, 40, 41% base that says: either the black man, or the brown man, or the Jewish man, or the media man, or the banker man is coming to take your wife."
During Thursday’s edition of Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough opened the show by playing a clip of President Trump speaking to troops during a surprise visit to Iraq. While Scarborough praised the President’s trips to Iraq and Germany, describing them as “very good and valuable uses of the President’s time over the Christmas holidays,” it did not take long for the Trump-bashing to begin. Scarborough used his opening monologue to trash President Trump for holding the troops “captive” and offered an extensive criticism of the President’s foreign policy before arguing that America will not be great again until after President Trump leaves Washington.
Joe Scarborough opened Morning Joe with a canned statement, thundering against President Trump's policies on immigration and asking "what would Jesus do" about it?
This week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2018. Today, it’s a look at the media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome as we present the most over-the-top attacks on President Donald Trump. When he wasn’t being compared to tyrants like Benito Mussolini, he was being branded a traitor who sold out America to Vladimir Putin. And of course he was repeatedly tarred as a hateful racist.
In 2018 there was a torrent of ugliness directed at conservatives. Vice President Mike Pence was disgustingly derided as a “dangerous” Christian with a “mental illness” on ABC’s The View. When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was hounded by leftist activists at a Virginia restaurant, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin praised them as she condemned: “Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press.”
On the Christmas Eve edition of Morning Joe, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough pushed the lame argument that, because a majority of illegal immigtants are estimated to be visa overstays, it is therefore not worth it to build a border wall to halt the substantial number who cross from Mexico illegally.
