Playing off Nancy Pelosi's heated response to James Rosen's question as to whether she hates President Trump, Morning Joe goes off on a long riff, repeatedly praising Pelosi's great "faith." Mika says Pelosi's filling a "moral void." There is much talk of Pelosi's great compassion for children, with Scarborough citing Gospel on "let the children come." There is no discussion of Pelosi's advocacy for abortion on demand.
On Thursday, NBC and MSNBC eagerly touted a new ad from the Biden campaign that featured several liberal journalists attacking President Trump with hostile coverage of his overseas trip to the NATO summit. Despite playing the ad multiple times, none of the reporters acknowledged – or objected – to the fact that members of the press were being used to push a partisan political message.
Liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus bashed the right as having trouble "accepting the facts,” on Morning Joe Tuesday. She was on MSNBC plugging her new anti-Kavanaugh book “Supreme Ambition,” which compares last year’s Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearings to the present day impeachment hearings. In it, Marcus argues that Republicans were unwilling to believe “the evidence” against Kavanaugh, just as they’re unwilling to believe the evidence for impeachment.
On Tuesday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough launched into a bitter anti-Trump screed demanding that House Democrats expand the impeachment inquiry in order to “show the American people the full breadth and the full scope of Donald Trump’s corruption” and expose the supposed “lawlessness” of the administration.
Appearing as a guest on Morning Joe Wednesday, liberal Rev. Jim Wallis discussed his book Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus. Not surprisingly, it did not take long for Wallis to begin trashing President Trump and white evangelical Christians. Another member of the panel, the incendiary Al Sharpton, accused white evangelicals of “submitting to white nationalism and Trump,” a point that Wallis seemed to agree with.
For the feminist left, it's strictly verboten to call a woman candidate unlikable. Poor Donny Deutsch learned that lesson the hard way on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on Elizabeth Warren's precipitous poll drop, Deutsch attributed her problem not only to her unpopular plan to strip people of their private health insurance, but also to her "likability issue," noting her "high-school principal demeanor." But it wasn't long before Karine Jean-Pierre, an MSNBC analyst and spokesperson for the far-left MoveOn.org, rapped Donny across the knuckles.
On Monday's Morning Joe, Anand Giridharadas, who seems to be setting himself up to be the left's fiercest critic of Bloomberg, clashed with New York Times columnist and Bloomberg defender Bret Stephens. When Stephens said "this is America" and people like Bloomberg who develop good ideas can be richly rewarded, a thin-skinned Giridharadas shot back, "you don't need to tell me 'this is America.' I'm from America." Giridharadas also gave Stephens the old, "I let you finish," and offered to give him a copy of his new book, since to Giridharadas it seemed Stephens hadn't sufficiently absorbed its wisdom.
The liberal media is not known for its deep and abiding respect for the US military. Yet in the opening segment alone of today's Morning Joe, there were no fewer than nine instances of members of the panel referring to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as a "hero" or Purple Heart recipient. For good measure, Mike Barnicle melodramatically described him as "wearing the cloth of our country." What accounts for such a sudden onset of hero worship? The answer's obvious: since the Democrats and MSM see Vindman as a key impeachment witness against President Trump, it suits their political purposes to celebrate his status, lending credence to his testimony.
Marco Rubio was roundly criticized when during the 2016 primary he made suggestive remarks about Donald Trump's supposedly small hands. But Joe Scarborough decided to jump right down in that same gutter on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on the loss of Ed Rispone, the Trump-backed candidate in the Louisiana governor's race, Scarborough smirked: "Little hands, little fingers, little coattails."
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe Friday, the liberal hosts and their guests’ engaged in their typical knee jerk reaction to a senseless act of violence, by immediately blaming Republicans. After two students were shot and killed by a fellow student at a California high school Thursday, co-host Joe Scarborough claimed there was an “epidemic” of kids walking into gun stores, buying AR-15s, and shooting up their schools. Not only that, but Republicans couldn't care less, unless the shooter was a Muslim.
When it comes to trashing President Trump, there's nothing nastier than an "MSNBC Republican"--the ilk whose livelihood depends on dishing out a dependable stream of bile about the president. On today's Morning Joe, MSNBC Republican Elise Jordan did her best to promote her job security. After Joe Scarborough claimed that, behind the scenes, Republican elected officials all hate Trump, and Republican senators would all vote to remove him from office if they could get away with it, Jordan chimed in to say: "They know he’s a moron. They know he’s corrupt. They know that his behavior is just a classic scumbag."
As part of their never-ending quest to take down President Trump, the “experts” at MSNBC came up with a unique charge on Tuesday’s edition of the Morning Joe program, when a guest claimed that the GOP occupant of the White House was “compromised” by Russia as far back as 1977. Instead of questioning the unlikely accusation, co-host Willie Geist agreed with the charge that Trump had gone from being a “useful idiot” to an “unwitting asset” for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was actually described by the pundit as a “super-villain.”
