During Monday's edition of Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough argued that anyone who subscribed to the idea that Former FBI Director James Comey and Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe have an animus against President Trump should not handle “anything sharp because you will hurt yourself because you are too incompetent actually to use any basic household appliances.”
Predictably, Friday's cable coverage was flooded with talk of former FBI Director Comey's new book, which has cashed in on the highly profitable craze for Trump insider dirt. But on Morning Joe, BBC reporter Katty Kay broke ranks when she pointed out that the "pettiness" and "personal edge" of Comey's narration undermined the book's credibility.
During the Thursday edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters hammered the way the “right-wing media” covered the caravan of illegal immigrants that earlier this week headed toward the American border. Peters was particularly critical of how the “1,200 or so” participants quickly became "thousands” in a tweet from President Donald Trump.
Wednesday was the 50th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and MSNBC’s Morning Joe decided to commemorate the occasion by bringing on Al Sharpton -- host of the channel’s Sunday morning PoliticsNation show -- to discuss King’s legacy in the era of President Donald Trump. Of course, Sharpton used the occasion to slam the Republican occupant of the White House by asserting that he has created a “racial divide” in America by making “intolerance become vogue again.”
Since Sunday night, the liberal media have been haranguing network affiliate owner Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG) for a new “must-run” promo that warned against “biased and false news.” The two have slammed it as Trump-backed “state-run TV” on par with the former Soviet outlet Pravda that's “chilling,” frightening” and “a really embarrassing moment for journalism.” A NewsBusters study examined the two cable networks on April 2 found that CNN spent 76 minutes and 42 seconds while MSNBC hyperventilated for nearly twice as long at 134 minutes and 42 seconds.
Joe Scarborough is deeply concerned about President Trump’s Twitter habits. On Tuesday, the Morning Joe host attempted to take the President to task by reciting a slew of negative words that had appeared in his tweets over the previous 24 hours, after which he suffered a full-scale meltdown over Trump’s most recent tweet storm.
On Monday, Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough stuffed his foot into his mouth with alarming force when he dismissed reports of a caravan of Central Americans travelling towards the U.S. as “absolutely preposterous.”
At the top of Monday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show ripped a new promo on network affiliates owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group denouncing “false news” as a “chilling,” “frightening,” and “Pravda”-like “propaganda clip” doing President Trump’s bidding. Of course, it was without any sense of irony in how they licked the Obama administration’s boots and serve as home for the Resistance.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have long bemoaned President Trump’s frequent use of Twitter to opine on political matters. But on Thursday, the Morning Joe hosts seemed almost perturbed that the President had thus far refrained from tweeting about the Stormy Daniels scandal since her appearance on 60 Minutes.
Wednesday marked the historic day that MSNBC Contributor John Heilemann would hold Morning Joe panelists to a standard of honesty rarely seen on the show. When hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski interpreted a transparently inconsequential poll as a portent of a Trump defeat in 2020, Heilemann objected, soundly dismissing both the poll and their analysis of it.
Following the highly anticipated 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels, panelists on Monday’s Morning Joe changed their tone with regard to the scandal, approaching the story with a heretofore unseen level of skepticism. MSNBC contributor John Heilemann complained that the interview ‘fell short,’ while host Joe Scarborough and George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley questioned the porn star’s motives and credibility.
Stop Joe Scarborough before he sings again. The smug, 54-year-old Morning Joe host created another music video on Monday, using footage of the pro-gun control March for Our Lives inter-cut with the song "Stand." The video aired at the very end of Monday’s show. Scarborough introduced: “That does it for us this morning. Before Chris Jansing picks up the coverage, we leave you with some more images from this weekend’s rallies across America.”
