On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says, "we [gestures toward Mika] saw him for 12 years behind closed doors. Never, ever, once—I'll say under oath, I'll put into an affidavit—never once heard him say anything close to being racially insensitive. Never once!"

During Tuesday’s edition of Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough discussed the explosive recently found in left-wing billionaire George Soros’s mailbox. After talking about how President Trump and “backbenchers in the Republican Congress” have blamed Soros for funding the caravans and “one fake conspiracy after another,” Scarborough insinuated that Republicans deserve blame for the explosive device, in addition to saying that racism motivates the anti-Soros rhetoric: “You have got to point the finger back at the President and these Republican members of Congress that have just been spreading these conspiracy theories that have anti-Semitic overtones to them.”
During Monday’s Morning Joe, the panel discussed a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll and Republican strategist Kristen Soltis Anderson brought up how Republicans have a commanding lead among the 38 percent of voters who list the economy as their most important issue.

The cast of Morning Joe (Mika, Joe, Meacham, and Barnicle) put on their bitter-beer faces. They castigate Republicans for celebrating the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh with brewskis, and rip Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell for their roles.

On Tuesday's Morning Joe show on MSNBC, regular panel members invited a liberal activist to bash the Trump administration over the treatment of illegal immigrants at the border.

Groping for grounds to believe Brett Kavanaugh's accusers, Mike Barnicle has come up with a novel argument. On Monday's Morning Joe, the former Boston Globe columnist said: "you would have to be mentally ill to inject yourself into this argument, and to fabricate or lie about these things. You would have to be totally mentally ill. Because you've ruined a large part of your life immediately. You've ruined it."
