On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski claims Elizabeth Warren won the Democrat debate by rejecting stereotypes about what women should avoid, and instead being "aggressive" and "pissed off" and living her message. If Democrats were smart, they would have one, cardinal criterion when it comes to picking their presidential candidate: who has the best shot at defeating President Trump. But Mika Brzezinski seems more interested in choosing a champion for her brand of in-your-face feminism. And thus it was on today's Morning Joe that Mika declared Elizabeth Warren the big winner of last night's debate because "she was aggressive, she was pissed off."
Donald Trump has been President for almost two and a half years. If there is one thing that Democrats and their allies in the media still cannot seem to wrap their heads around, it is why he won in the first place. Liberals in the media have just an utter resentment for Americans in the middle of the country who led President Trump’s winning coalition.
Looks like Morning Joe was really shaken by the massive, enthusiastic, crowd that turned out for President Trump's campaign kick-off rally in Orlando last night. Scrambling for something to counter the wave, the show settled on comparing the President to an old, fat Elvis going through the motions with his shtick. MSNBC's John Heilemann, sinking to a particularly ugly low, claimed Trump reminded him of Elvis "in Graceland, in front of like the six televisions, with a big, huge bottle of Quaaludes, and a bottle of vodka, and the shotgun."
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Deadline: White House, John Heilemann attacks Fox News in general, and Sean Hannity in particular, for creating a political and business model built on lies, fantasy, hypocrisy, and "bullshit."
CNN and MSNBC's audiences heard repeated assertions on Wednesday that Special Counsel Mueller’s public briefing was “basically” a call for President Trump’s impeachment or prosecution. Rather than simply relaying what Mueller had actually said, cable hosts meticulously picked apart and psychoanalyzed his words to divine what the Special Counsel “really” meant: that the President was “a criminal” who ought to be impeached immediately.
On Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on MSNBC, during a discussion of Fox News reaction to Attorney General Bill Barr's testimony on the Mueller report, John Heilemann derided FNC host Sean Hannity as a "steaming, hot pile of Hannity" who is as "happy as a pig in ****" as the MSNBC national affairs analyst seemed annoyed at having to react to the conservative Fox News host's commentary.
During a two-minute monologue on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House Wednesday, NBC News National Affairs Analyst John Heilemann trashed Attorney General Bill Barr and suggested that he should be impeached. Heilemann frequently referenced a New York Times op-ed written by former FBI Director James Comey, where he slammed Barr; holding him up as a once-respected public figure corrupted by President Trump, whom Comey alleges “eats your soul in small bites.”
On the eve of Joe Biden's expected announcement of his candidacy, Morning Joe offered a very downbeat take on his prospects. Joe Scarborough said, " I have yet to talk to a Democratic activist or a Democratic fundraiser who is excited about Joe Biden getting in the race . . . almost every Democrat, to a person, that I have spoken with is concerned that this is going to end badly for Joe Biden, and that he should not get into the race."
MSNBC’s Deadline: White House is known as being a hub for those willing to do or say anything to slime President Trump. On Monday’s edition of the show, they proved that to be true yet again when they dedicated the first segment to the suggestion that the President’s weekend tweetstorm was somehow an outward symptom of some sort of “crisis level” “psychological duress” brought on from a mental “spasm” due to fear.
MSNBC's Morning Joe's week of strange Churchillian analogies continued on Thursday when the morning show panel discussed President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen's testimony to the House Oversight Committee.
The Wednesday edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe kicked off with a conspiritorial and unsophisticated look at President Trump's policies towards Russia. After the intel chiefs condradicted Trump on multiple fronts on Tuesday in front of a Senate committee, Morning Joe was not content to criticize Trump, but said on multiple occassions that such a disconnect between the President and the IC was evidence that Vladimir Putin has something on Trump.
The Morning Joe panel devotes a segment to looking/hoping for signs of a break from President Trump by congressional Republicans. New York Times Washington bureau chief Elisabeth Bumiller encapsulates the sentiment: "We're always looking for signs of a break with Republicans on the Hill—a public break—from Trump."
