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. Anderson noted that the good economy makes voters more accepting of President Trump despite the fact that he sometimes behaves like a “jerk.”
During Wednesday’s Morning Joe, the panel expressed outrage at President Trump calling porn star Stormy Daniels "horseface" and so the outrage culminated in a rant by co-host Mika Brzezinski against Trump, questioning his fitness for office and urged cabinet officials to invoke the 25th Amendment.
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. "A shabby Senate, with a short-sighted, selfish, cynical, Majority Leader who cared more about his political party and his own political ambitions than the country itself," said Joe.
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. The group was even true to form as an MSNBC panel by excluding any questions or commentary from a right-leaning perspective in spite of having one contributor who actually had a conservative history prior to joining the liberal news network.
On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle claims that "everyone so revered" the Presidency and the U.S. Senate not that long ago, and wonders how long it will take to repair the damage to those institutions that is now being done on a daily basis.
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."
Morning Joe, normally the go-to place for Trump antagonism, was surprisingly supportive today of the Republican decision to move to a Judiciary committee vote on Kavanaugh next Wednesday, rejecting Dem demands for an investigation of Christine Ford's allegations. Mika Brzezinski accused the Democrats of "moving the goal posts." Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle scoffed at the idea of an FBI investigation: "investigate what?" Anti-Trump Republican Susan Del Percio said if Ford is not willing to testify on Monday, "what right does she have to delay this or ask for the FBI investigation?"
In the first ten minutes of Thursday’s Morning Joe, co-hosts and lovers Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked President’s early-morning tweetstorm criticizing the Russia probe, referred to Fox News hosts as “pro-Russian dupes,” and accused anyone who wants to end the Mueller investigation of “doing the bidding of an ex-KGB spy.” In addition, panelist Mike Barnicle described President Trump’s base as “deranged.”
Apparently, no idea is too crazy on Morning Joe. In a bizarre call to action on Wednesday, senior contributor and MSNBC veteran columnist Mike Barnicle took to the airwaves to declare his support for a rewrite of the Constitution and a replacement of the democratically elected President of the United States.
During Wednesday’s edition of Morning Joe, historian Jon Meacham felt he had come up with the perfect explanation for President Trump’s tense relationships with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Meacham asked “What’s the role of misogyny here?” He continued spouting talking points, asking “Does Merkel remind him of Hillary? Does that help explain the Theresa May issue? He does not have a particularly healthy relationship, it seems, with a lot of strong women.”
You could almost hear the strains of "Give Me that Old Time Religion" in the background as the Morning Joe crew used religion to blast Trump on Thursday. In addition to Holy Joe Scarborough leading the charge was guest Eddie Glaude who recently went on an anti-Israel tirade as well as sanctimonious Jon Meacham who declared that anyone who supports Trump is committing idolatry.
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.
