In the first ten minutes of Thursday’s Morning Joe, co-hosts and lovers Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked President’s early-morning tweetstorm criticizing the Russia probe, referred to Fox News hosts as “pro-Russian dupes,” and accused anyone who wants to end the Mueller investigation of “doing the bidding of an ex-KGB spy.” In addition, panelist Mike Barnicle described President Trump’s base as “deranged.”
During Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel engaged in quite a bit of hyperbole when reacting to President Trump’s threat to revoke the security clearances of former Obama administration officials including former CIA Director John Brennan. Keep in mind that all of the media overreaction comes despite the fact that President Trump has only threatened to revoke the security clearances thus far.
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."
During Wednesday’s edition of Morning Joe, historian Jon Meacham felt he had come up with the perfect explanation for President Trump’s tense relationships with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Meacham asked “What’s the role of misogyny here?” He continued spouting talking points, asking “Does Merkel remind him of Hillary? Does that help explain the Theresa May issue? He does not have a particularly healthy relationship, it seems, with a lot of strong women.”
So. What do we have here? First, Facebook censors a posting of a segment from the Declaration of Independence as “hate speech.” Next, actor James Woods loses his agent because of his conservative and pro-Trump views. Then last but not least, when it comes clear that the liberals of Martha’s Vineyards are turning socially on their old friend and neighbor Alan Dershowitz, the Morning Joe crowd snarks it up and says he “has to suffer the consequences” for his views.
During Thursday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel discussed some of President Trump’s potential Supreme Court picks, specifically Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh. When Axios's Mike Allen suggested that the final decision will be determined by “the personal connection, who he feels comfortable with in that moment.” Scarborough responded: “So you’re saying he’s going to pick the man, the white man,” referring to Kavanaugh. Scarborough justified his assumption by saying “90 percent of Donald Trump's selections for U.S. Attorneys and federal judges were white men.” Katty Kay acknowledged “you’re right, he has a thing about appointing white guys but it wouldn’t totally surprise me if he goes for somebody who feels more in line with the base on this one and gets his excitement about the base going.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday, CNBC founder and former NBC Cable president Tom Rogers argued that Democrats should respond to President Trump naming a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy by expanding the size of the court and packing it with liberals if they win control of Congress and the White House in 2020.
From President Donald Trump’s policy of separating the children of illegal immigrants to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, there was a lot for lefties in the media and Hollywood to lose their heads over this month. Anchors and reporters depicted the “despot” Trump and those who voted for him as Nazis that were making the Statue of Liberty weep. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities.
During Monday’s edition of Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski brought up the “problem that Sarah Sanders had over the weekend,” described it as an “absolutely legitimate problem” while at the same time dismissing it, asking “who cares at this point?” Never-Trumper Elise Jordan seemed to suggest that Sanders deserved to be kicked out of the restaurant, asking “Should someone who lies constantly and enables the President's lies be openly welcomed in society wherever they please? Should they face any kind of social or societal pressure? I’m increasingly weighing towards yes, even though I’m all about civility.”
The hosts of Morning Joe are angry once again. During a discussion on Tuesday of the policy of separating the children of illegals at the border, Joe Scarborough decided to play Bible expert and wondered if Mike Pence cuts out sections of the Bible (in the style of Thomas Jefferson).
Over the past week, as the dominant media have been fixated on President Donald Trump's push to more aggressively prosecute those who cross the border illegally, there have again been questionable claims that illegal immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than the native-born population. But the studies cited either do not make a distinction between legal and illegal immigrants, or do not look at whether those who sneak across the border illegally have a higher crime rate than those who simply overstay visas. The media also continued to ignore other studies which suggest illegal immigrants do, in fact, exhibit a higher crime rate.
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.”
