Given how quickly and how aggressively journalists have moved to politicize the coronavirus and to blame Donald Trump, it was a bit of a shock on Friday to see Morning Joe co-host Willie Geist quiz Mayor Bll de Blasio (albeit gently) on his early incompetent handling of the virus crisis. Geist demanded, “Knowing what you know now, do you wish you'd closed the schools a little bit earlier? Do you wish you'd closed the restaurants and bars a little bit earlier, just to stop the spread and maybe save some lives?”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says, regarding the coronavirus, that "everybody saw this coming in early January." Yet on Scarborough's own Morning Joe, on March 10th, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio repeatedly downplayed the threat of the virus. On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, criticizing President Trump, said:
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says "everybody was attacking this My Pillow guy," Mike Lindell, regarding his appearance at President Trump's press conference. Not "everybody," Joe. It was your fellow Trump-hating elitists, including your own NBC network and your own wife, who were doing the mocking. Scarborough and Willie Geist did go on to express appreciation for Lindell's pledge to produce 50,000 masks.
On Wednesday's Morning Joe, during a discussion of former Vice President Joe Biden's surprisingly strong showing against Senator Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday, MSNBC contributor and former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham earnestly endorsed Joe Biden for president as a "more rational choice" historically over President Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. He also lamented that Trump has veered from "unthinkable to unthinkable to unthinkable," but Biden is a "genuine, empathetic figure."
The truth has no place on NBC News. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist continued to push the long-debunked accusation that President Trump called the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) a “hoax” at a Friday campaign rally in South Carolina. On top of that, Geist suggested it took the first death of an American in the U.S. to get the President to cut it out and take the situation seriously.
The media relationship with the Russian collusion narrative is akin to the ex-boyfriend a high school adolescent cannot seem to move on from. It is over. No one is in need of hearing this dosage of cold-hard truth more than the individuals at MSNBC, as proven by Friday's Morning Joe.
Though the apparent attempt to rundown multiple Trump supporters registering voters in Florida happened Saturday afternoon, and drew outrage from both of the state’s senators and President Trump himself, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC completely ignored the vicious attack. Come Sunday morning, only NBC’s Sunday Today thought it was worth some airtime, but only 25-seconds worth.
Debacle. Disaster. Fiasco. There's no shortage of descriptors for the colossal cock-up that were the Democrat Iowa caucuses. We present a mashup of comments on Morning Joe and CNN's New Day regarding the Democrat Iowa caucus disaster.
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.
On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and his blushing bride Mika Brzezinski went gaga over Adam Schiff's two and a half hours of presenting the Democrat case on impeachment. Each of them cried "virtuoso performance"! Bravo! Throw the flowers in his illustrious path!
Since MSNBC and CNN are both liberal “news” outlets, it certainly comes as no shock when they quote information from each other and consider those assertions to be 100 percent accurate without verifying any of them. That was the case on Tuesday, when the co-hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe cable TV program quoted results from a survey conducted by CNN that claimed more than half of the people across the country consider President Donald Trump to be a liar -- just hours before the Senate impeachment trial got underway.
The Morning Joe crew revels in imagining President Trump's supposed pain over his impending impeachment.
