MSNBC’s Morning Joe stooped to a new low on Monday morning when the assembled panel refused to condemn 2020 Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld’s insistence that President Donald Trump should be put to death because, in his mind, he’s committed treason for his conversations with the Ukrainian president. Not only that, but Weld twice made this case while panelists Mike Barnicle, Mika Brzezinski, Elise Jordan Joe Scarborugh, and Michael Steele refused to push back along with fellow Trump challengers Mark Sanford and Joe Walsh.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday, Axios co-founder Jim VandeHei warned that allies of President Trump were raising money to fund a campaign calling out media bias. The reporter decried the move as “an escalation of what he’s been doing in going after the media” while others on the liberal morning show warned of Trump injecting a “poison” and “virus” into politics by criticizing the press.
Looks like Epstein conspiracy theories are catnip for the Morning Joe gang. Two days ago, we noted that Joe Scarborough had tweeted out a bizarre theory based on Russsian involvement, and suggested that it was "bullshit" to label Epstein's death a suicide. The irony/hypocrisy of Scarborough's assertion was that he proceeded to condemn President Trump for having retweeted another theory.
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.
On Morning Joe, discussing last night's Democrat debate, Joe Scarborough says Americans don't want to hear about the details of the Bernie Sanders "Medicare for All" plan. Instead, says Scarborough, they want to hear about how President Trump is a bigot and a racist, and how "he's appointing federal judges that don't respect precedent." As if liberal judges never overturn precedent?
The leftist media seeks to vilify those who support conservative ideals and glorify all who oppose them. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), has felt the wrath of the press for decades so it’s not surprising that the liberal media are pulling out all the stops for his Democratic opponent Amy McGrath.
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 the Memorial Day edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski tried to bait liberal commentators Mike Barnicle and Paul Rieckhoff to use the national day of remembrance to attack President Trump. Fortunately. the two Trump critics, likely recognizing there is a time and a place for everything and that today is not that time, refused to go along.
Reacting to the Bernie Sanders town hall on Fox News, Morning Joe praises FNC for opening the door to different points of view. DNC chairman Tom Perez is criticized for prohibiting FNC from conducting a Dem presidential debate. And panel members praise as fair FNC personalities Bret Baier, Martha McCallum, Chris Wallace, Bill Hemmer, and Shep Smith.
New York Times reporter Nick Confessore was on MSNBC's Morning Joe Tuesday to talk about his nearly 8,400 word article about Acting White House Chief of Staff and Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney's changes to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau entitled "Mick Mulvaney's Master Class in Destroying the Government From Within," under the graphic "Make America Pay Again." Morning Joe did not appreciate Mulvaney's effort to rein in the runaway bureaucracy.
MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough would like viewers to know that he is not a fan of Attorney General William Barr. On Thursday's show, Scarborough launched into Barr for telling a Senate subcommittee that, "I think spying did occur" against the Trump campaign and he was going to look into it to make sure there was nothing nefarious going on.
Reacting to Rep. Ilhan Omar's description of 9/11 as "some people did some things," Joe Scarborough, on Morning Joe, says, that it's "so important for her to succeed." He and Mika Brzezinski express the wish that instead of tweeting criticism of her statement, Republican congressman Dan Crenshaw had spoken with Omar personally.
