Monday’s Morning Joe served as an encapsulation of liberal media fear-mongering over the coronavirus, engaging in cheerleading for hysteria and economic ruin. Panelists chided that the “callous and immoral” and “sick” response employed by President Trump and his administration and, as co-host Joe Scarborough warned, Americans will die from the virus because of Trump’s “stupidity.”
Following Monday’s sudden retirement/pushing out of longtime MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews after a plethora of recent negative headlines, Hardball still needed some to see it through to the end. Frequent fill-in host Steve Kornacki was left to soldier on and, while he did, emotions were high. Putting aside Matthews's actions, Kornacki handled Monday night with command, genuine (and heartbreaking) emotion, and honest professionalism.
The media are perspiring as a result of all the fire at Wednesday night's Democratic debate. Chief among those quaking in their anchor chairs are the leftist crew of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, who hosted one of the candidates, Senator Amy Klobuchar, on Thursday morning’s program.
Joe Scarborough has once again assumed his role as a strategic advisor to the Democrats. On Morning Joe, Scarborough warns Democrats that it would be a "sucker's deal" for them to trade testimony by Hunter Biden for that of John Bolton at the impeachment trial.
The panel on Sunday’s edition of Kasie DC acted as Democratic strategists, giving House Democrats advice ahead of the public testimony of career diplomats as part of the impeachment inquiry. In addition, the panel predicted that former National Security Adviser John Bolton would emerge as a “star witness” for the Democrats if he decided to testify.
Vice President Mike Pence was in New Hampshire on Thursday to file President Trump's paperwork for that state's Republican Primary and afterwards gave a brief speech to supporters where he laid out the administration's case for re-election. One of the things Pence cited was the country's positive economic situation since 2017 and even MSNBC Live had to concede the positive economic situation in the country is currently quite good, so how did the anti-Trump network spin this one? By saying credit actually belongs with former President Obama, of course.
Move over Robert Mueller, the liberal media have found a new love. With House Democrats announcing an impeachment inquiry against President Trump over his phone call with the president of Ukraine, the media promptly dropped the Special Counsel’s inconclusive Russia investigation in favor of the latest promise of Trump’s political downfall. Reporters even went so far as to admit Mueller’s two-year effort was a “confusing” and “convoluted” flop.
This could be the biggest display of chutzpah since the guy convicted of offing his parents pleaded for mercy on the basis of being an orphan. MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough had the gall Monday morning to condemn President Trump over an Epstein conspiracy theory, despite having floated a bizarre one himself. Shortly after the news of Epstein's death became public on Saturday morning, Scarborough took to Twitter.
Not surprisingly, the panel on Deadline: White House Thursday delighted in reporting on former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s harsh words for President Trump as reported by The Washington Post. Of course, President Trump did not hesitate to punch back at Tillerson; calling him “dumb as a rock.” According to host Nicolle Wallace, “he (Trump) called someone else ‘dumb as a rock,’ he called Nancy Pelosi crazy, I think he worries that maybe someone thinks he’s dumb as a rock and crazy.”
Joe Scarborough proclaimed his opinion on the situation regarding the White House visit of the Boston Red Sox, celebrating their 2018 World Series victory. All the players of color, with the exception of one Cuban-American, have announced that they are not going. All of the white players are going. Scarborough says that under the circumstances, he wouldn't go, and he wishes that one white team leader would announce that although he would like to go, he will not, and would instead "stay back" with his teammates of color.
On Tuesday night, MSNBC host Chris Matthews spent the duration of Hardball going after his fellow lefties from their own even more fanatical flank, pushing impeachment because America has “a President who broke his oath” who’s illegitimate on similar footing with disputed home run king Barry Bonds due to his reported use of steroids.
The journalists on Monday's Morning Joe offered very little push back to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as he appeared to push his city's own version of the Green New Deal (GND). Co-host Joe Scarborough began asking "What are you doing" and how would New York's effort "provides a road map for Democrats and independents and some progressive or forward thinking Republicans nationwide?"
