What a difference a day makes! Yesterday, the Morning Joe crew was insisting that Mike Bloomberg immediately drop out of the race to clear the field for Biden and prevent a Sanders nomination. Today, after airing Bloomberg's wide-ranging interview with Kasie Hunt, Morning Joe was overflowing with praise for him!
Joe Scarborough caught a lot of flak from the left earlier this week for suggesting that Elizabeth Warren drop out of the race. Just wait till the lefties get hold of what Scarborough & Co. said this morning about Warren's sustained attacks on Mike Bloomberg during last night's debate. The panel variously described Liz's arrows [you should excuse the expression] against poor Bloomie as "extreme, uncomfortable, bizarre, absurd."
Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe distorted an Axios report on President Donald Trump’s economy to credit former president Barack Obama. The show ran a segment defending Obama’s tweet congratulating himself for today’s booming economy.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says of Joe Biden, "I'm not doing his bidding. I'm just telling you the truth." And the truth, according to Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, is that Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders would be weak candidates, whereas Biden would have the best chance of defeating President Trump.
On Morning Joe today, Mika Brzezinski told Al Sharpton that he was in a position to grant Bloomberg a "pass" on racial issues, and that Bloomberg is certainly "looking for it." And Mika wondered whether Bloomberg would "put his money where his mouth is?" What is she asking? That Bloomberg give money to Sharpton's National Action Network?
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says that AG Bill Barr, by saying that some of President Trump's tweets make it impossible for Barr to do his job, is actually saying is "that these tweets make it harder for Bill Barr to help him be corrupt."
In a Washington Post column promoted heavily on today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough has penned what amounts to a political eulogy for Joe Biden. It's headlined "No matter how it ends, I'm proud of Joe Biden." He ostentatiously placed himself at the "top of the list" of people proud of Biden.
Calling President Trump a "would-be dictator," Joe Scarborough claimed on today's Morning Joe that if he could "get away with it," Trump would arrest Mika and him, and every other journalist he didn't like, and throw them in jail to silence them. The liberals tried this tactic before the election. None of this has ever happened, but they just keep predicting it. They have to pretend pulling Jim Acosta's "news" credentials for a week is somehow like wasting away in the Gulag.
Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough lashed out on today's Morning Joe at the moderate Republican senators who voted to acquit President Trump. The particular object of their ire was Sen. Susan Collins. Not content to suggest that Collins was "unpatriotic," Brzezinski taunted Collins, telling her to "have fun" with her "legacy" of Ukrainian deaths.
On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe provided a knee-jerk defense of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripping up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address as the speech concluded Tuesday night. They claimed the nasty move was justified because of Trump’s “lies” and applauded it as “the most effective” Democratic response.
While anchors and analysts on MSNBC had nothing but praise for anyone involved in the prosecution accusations that President Trump is unfit for office and should immediately be removed, these same liberals have had nothing but contempt and ridicule for the people who sought to defend the Republican occupant of the White House. That was particularly evident on Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, when co-host Joe Scarborough sought to demean Trump defender Ken Starr -- who claimed that we’re in an “age of impeachment" -- by stating that the former Bill Clinton prosecutor had included several sexual terms in his own report two decades ago.
Perhaps in a sign of anticipatory anguish over the Dems' impending defeat, Joe Scarborough went on an epic rant this morning, trashing and sliming the members of the Trump defense team. Scarborough, repeatedly calling the team a "confederacy of dunces," saved his most repellent comments for Ken Starr.
