During Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough had a surprising recommendation for viewers: “If you don't want to hear the truth, you can change the channel!” Scarborough made the remark after fiancé and fellow co-host Mika Brzezinski finished an interview with anti-Trump Republican Max Boot, who noted in an opinion column from the Washington Post “the five political norms that President Trump violated in just the past week.”
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.”
During Thursday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel lost their collective mind over Vice President Mike Pence telling NBC’s Andrea Mitchell that he would “respectfully encourage the Special Counsel and his team to bring their work to completion.” Co-host Joe Scarborough went so far as to compare the Vice President, whom he had previously referred to as a “Hapless Indiana Hoosier,” to Richard Nixon’s first Vice President Spiro Agnew, who had to resign because of corruption charges.
On the Wednesday edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the panel went into full-on panic and hysteria mode as a result of President Trump deciding to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. Co-host Mika Brzezinski alleged that President Trump "doesn't have a moral compass" and said that "the President’s sanity is being questioned globally.” She also implied that President Trump pulled out of the Iran deal to “deflect” from the Stormy Daniels saga.
Pettiness was the name of the game on Thursday’s Morning Joe as MSNBC panelists took turns attempting to negatively spin the release of three American hostages from North Korea.
Even before President Trump’s announcement on Tuesday that the U.S. would be backing out of the Iran nuclear deal, the press had begun mounting an anxious defense of the agreeent. It’s no secret that the Obama-era treaty has been a foreign policy favorite among many in the media, and the same was true back when it was first negotiated in 2015.
Monday’s Morning Joe was firing on all cylinders, full of liberal hot takes and hypocrisy from their faux conservatives and Republicans. Chief among them was co-host Joe Scarborough, who demanded that Republicans defending and enabling President Trump “not only owe an apology to this nation, they owe an apology to their children,” which is amusing considering Scarborough’s personal history with the President.
On Friday’s edition of Morning Joe, the panel engaged some predictable hyperbole and exaggeration with regards to the latest developments in the Stormy Daniels saga, namely that President Trump did in fact reimburse his personal attorney Michael Cohen for $130,000 he paid the porn star in the weeks leading up to the election, despite his past denials
On Thursday, Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski spent less than 40 minutes of their three-hour MSNBC show talking about anything other the President’s legal troubles.
Maybe Mika Brzezinski shouldn’t announce every thought that pops into her head. On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, she suggested that Donald Trump has a sexually transmitted disease and “raided” his former doctor’s office to cover it up. MSNBC panelist Elise Jordan kicked off the discussion by suggesting that working for the administration is “the political equivalent of an STD.”
During Monday morning’s edition of NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today program, the host led an extensive discussion regarding the charges of sexual harassment against Tom Brokaw and had some words of advice for the many women who have signed a letter supporting the former NBC Nightly News anchor. Referring to her experience with the late Roger Ailes, who was the chief executive officer for Fox News until he stepped down amid allegations of sexual misconduct in July of 2016, Kelly cautioned the NBC News colleagues who signed the letter: “You don’t know what you don’t know.”
During Monday's edition of Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough argued that anyone who subscribed to the idea that Former FBI Director James Comey and Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe have an animus against President Trump should not handle “anything sharp because you will hurt yourself because you are too incompetent actually to use any basic household appliances.”
