There is perhaps no moment in Donald Trump’s presidency in which the media unnecessarily melted down more than in their coverage of President Trump’s Fourth of July “Salute to America” celebration. The event itself was a tribute to America’s military and the country’s history. It featured flyovers from all five branches of the military.
There no group of people who receive more scorn by liberals in the media than female Republicans. A woman that dares think outside of the media’s progressive pigeonhole is immediately put in their crosshairs. Over the last few days, the media have created a new line of attack off the recent arrest of Jeffrey Epstein for the sex trafficking of minors and the renewed attention to the billionaire financier’s connections to President Trump and Labor Secretary Alex Acosta.
If this doesn't constitute an in-kind campaign contribution, what in the heck would? Today's Morning Joe devoted an 11-minute segment to promoting the candidacy of Amy McGrath, a Democrat who has announced her candidacy to run for the US Senate seat from Kentucky against Mitch McConnell. Even before McGrath appeared, Morning Joe ran the entirety of her minute-long announcement ad. And in ending the interminable segment, the panel repeatedly pushed people to McGrath's website, suggesting that they donate.
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."
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says that President Trump is afraid of Robert Mueller's testimony because Mueller represents "good versus evil." Donny Deutsch says that Mueller's testimony won't change much, and warns people against the "post-Mueller depression" they experienced when the Mueller report first came out. Mika agrees with Donny on "post-Mueller depression." And for saying that Mueller's testimony will be "useless," the Morning Joe panel vilifies Rudy Giuliani as "stupid, pathetic, grotesque" and a "critter."
If you are a woman, and accuse any notable Republican of sexual assault, you will immediately become the darling of the liberal media for at least a day no matter how little evidence there may be to back up the allegations. Over the last few days, the press have paraded around gossip writer E. Jean Carroll, who, in her new book, accused President Trump of raping her in the dressing room of a New York City department store in the 1990s.
On Monday, Morning Joe finally discovered something that the rest of America has known for over a year: there is a humanitarian crisis at America’s southern border. In doing so, however, they ignored the real issues plaguing America’s Customs and Border Patrol and went straight to throwing particularly disgusting political dirt at the Trump Administration.
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 Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says she'd "love to hear" from former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis or other former members of the Trump administration to hear about the "dysfunction" in the Trump administration and the "erosion of our credibility on the world stage."
On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski claimed Elizabeth Warren has had her [liberal] message "from the get-go, her entire life, her whole life." There's only one tiny problem: it seems that Warren was a registered Republican until . . . 1996, when Warren was 47 years old.
The co-hosts of Morning Joe on Monday turned to the help of a psychotherapist on the subject of how to talk politics with people you passionately disagree with. Keep in mind that these are people who compared Donald Trump and his supporters to Hitler and the Nazis. For the most part, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski spent much of the segment wondering what’s wrong with those who don’t listen to them.
If as Michael Kinsley once said, "a gaffe is when a politician tells the truth," Joe Scarborough committed a gigantic gaffe on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on a bill proposed by Dem Sen. Mark Warner that would have made it illegal for campaigns not to report offers of foreign assistance to the FBI, Scarborough said, "all we're doing is trying to stop Russians." "We're" doing? Yup, Scarborough, and his fellow Democrats.
