Morning Joe has been reduced to a Trump-trolling mess, in which every show is essentially the same. A show so predictable, it's boring. As Crosby, Stills & Nash put it in Judy Blue Eyes: "It's getting to the point, where I'm no fun anymore."
On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter released an extensive poll on the news habits of consumers plus a poll of 51 cable and broadcast network news hosts and late-night comedy hosts. In the full blog, check out the seven areas that The Hollywood Reporter article on their own poll didn’t have quite the time to do a deep dive on.
Appearing on the Tuesday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Primetime, the MRC’s Tim Graham and the eponymous host ripped the liberal media for pushing a “cuckoo conspiracy theory” about President Trump being a dictator and dismissing questions about the integrity of our electoral system (especially the voting recounts in South Florida).
As we have seen, Donny Deutsch has had a somewhat less than spectacular record when predicting on the subject of President Donald Trump. In fact, his predictions have often been spectacularly wrong. Deutsch's latest prediction on Trump was delivered on Monday's Morning Joe. In response to host Joe Scarborough's observation that Trump must already know he is going to lose re-election in 2020, Deutsch upped the ante on silliness by suggesting that if Trump does lose, he will stage a military coup.
During Friday’s Morning Joe, the panel repeatedly mocked the concern of Florida Senate candidate and current Governor Rick Scott, Senator Marco Rubio, and President Trump about Scott’s shrinking lead in the Florida Senate race as a result of votes coming in from Broward County well after Election Day. The panel neglected to mention that Florida law mandates that the results of mail ballots be announced thirty minutes after the polls closed; the heavily Democratic Broward County, which has a long history of mismanaging elections, failed to comply with the law.
On Morning Joe, Willie Geist says that President Trump would like nothing more than for House Dems to launch an impeachment investigation. Geist says it would be "the Kavanaugh situation multiplied times a thousand."
In the closing days before the midterm elections the liberal media went mad in their attacks on the GOP and especially President Donald Trump as they blamed his “racist” and violent rhetoric for the crazed actions of both the mail bomber and synagogue shooter. On CNN, a correspondent for GQ raged: “This President has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.” The following are the worst attacks on Trump and the GOP from their midterm election coverage.
On Morning Joe, reacting to some positive polls for Missouri Dem Sen. Claire McCaskill, Mika Brzezinski exclaims, "come on, Claire!" A bit later, Mika adds "I'm obsessed with her. I love her."
During Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough discussed the explosive recently found in left-wing billionaire George Soros’s mailbox. After talking about how President Trump and “backbenchers in the Republican Congress” have blamed Soros for funding the caravans and “one fake conspiracy after another,” Scarborough insinuated that Republicans deserve blame for the explosive device, in addition to saying that racism motivates the anti-Soros rhetoric: “You have got to point the finger back at the President and these Republican members of Congress that have just been spreading these conspiracy theories that have anti-Semitic overtones to them.”
Earlier this morning the media reported on “suspicious packages” being found in the mailboxes of the Clintons, Obamas, and the CNN newsroom in New York. As new details emerge, it becomes plain that this is a dangerous situation. But the Hollywood partisans couldn’t wait for details before blaming the president. Actress Mia Farrow assumed this was all due to Trump’s battle with the press, and also inexplicably included SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh as complicit.
During Monday’s Morning Joe, the panel discussed a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll and Republican strategist Kristen Soltis Anderson brought up how Republicans have a commanding lead among the 38 percent of voters who list the economy as their most important issue. Anderson noted that the good economy makes voters more accepting of President Trump despite the fact that he sometimes behaves like a “jerk.”
Uh-oh. So in all the justifiable uproar over the apparent murder — gruesome murder at that — of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi, over at Fox Howard Kurtz of Media Buzz has opened a window on an amazing liberal media/liberal Hollywood double-standard. Kurtz’s headline: “A Reckoning for Those Who Take Dirty Saudi Oil Money.”
