In yet another blatant display of liberal media bias, we humbly submit for your consideration interview questions for Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill from Thursday's on Morning Joe. Interviewing a member of the prestigious Senate Armed Services Committee should be a real chance to dig for details about the chance for peace in Korea or perhaps they even ask her about the collapse of ObamaCare in Missouri? Wrong.
It’s not unusual for viewers of Morning Joe to hear people attack President Trump. However, the crew of the MSNBC weekday series took the discussion to a new low on Thursday, when co-host Joe Scarborough and contributor John Heilemann criticized the GOP occupant of the White House on his reaction to rumors about the First Lady’s health. The clash began on Wednesday, when the President tweeted: "The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania."
During Wednesday's edition of Morning Joe, the panel almost seemed happy that the President’s planned summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un scheduled for June 12 may not pan out. Host Joe Scarborough accused President Trump of being “allergic to history,” in addition to accusing the people around him of being “contemptuous of history.”
While bemoaning during Friday’s Deadline: White House about the lack of decency and civility in light of White House staffer Kelly Sadler’s ugly comment about Republican Senator John McCain (AZ), MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace joked to White House correspondent Kristen Welker about choking White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
People on April 27 awoke to the astounding news and images of the historic summit meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea at the border truce village of Panmunjom. Although it is an extremely upbeat story perhaps signalling permanent peace on the Korean peninsula after 65 years of uneasy armistice, the mood on the Morning Joe set was about as joyful as a funeral parlor. Joe Scarborough gave very grudging credit to President Donald Trump but every such word he uttered seemed quite painful as you are about to see. He was followed by regular panelist John Heilemann who seemed to be about ready to burst out crying as he reported this would give Trump the opportunity to say he was proven right.
Joe Scarborough is deeply concerned about President Trump’s Twitter habits. On Tuesday, the Morning Joe host attempted to take the President to task by reciting a slew of negative words that had appeared in his tweets over the previous 24 hours, after which he suffered a full-scale meltdown over Trump’s most recent tweet storm.
Wednesday marked the historic day that MSNBC Contributor John Heilemann would hold Morning Joe panelists to a standard of honesty rarely seen on the show. When hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski interpreted a transparently inconsequential poll as a portent of a Trump defeat in 2020, Heilemann objected, soundly dismissing both the poll and their analysis of it.
Following the highly anticipated 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels, panelists on Monday’s Morning Joe changed their tone with regard to the scandal, approaching the story with a heretofore unseen level of skepticism. MSNBC contributor John Heilemann complained that the interview ‘fell short,’ while host Joe Scarborough and George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley questioned the porn star’s motives and credibility.
Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe lasted into the second week of the news cycle after he being fired by Attorney General Sessions over the weekend. His dismissal was accompanied by a shift in tone by the press, and by Monday, the usual suspects on MSNBC’s Morning Joe had memory-holed McCabe’s alleged transgressions for which the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility had recommended his firing in the first place.
On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe played a clip of President Trump visiting the U.S./Mexico border to inspect wall prototypes, and co-host Mika Brzezinski subsequently suffered an emotional breakdown over the footage.
Former Republican and current MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace further proved she isn’t any different than the hard-core leftists on her network on Thursday’s Deadline: White House. Wallace joined in with her liberal panel in ripping into Paul Ryan, Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican leadership in their response to Wednesday’s high school shooting in Parkland, FL, even making the ludicrous claim that the only reason why this tragedy was getting any attention was because the victims were “white kids.”
After weeks of breathless coverage of White House scandals, political intrigue, and gun control, the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe appear to have gotten high on their own supply and inadvertently incited themselves with their own rhetoric. On Friday’s panel, Mika Brzezinski abandoned all pretense of objectivity – what little remained – and deemed Democratic turnout in the 2018 midterms “our hope for the future of this country.”
