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.”
Steve Schmidt is a brother-in-arms with Joe Scarborough. Both quit the Republican party, and have made their life's work the taking down of President Trump by any means necessary. And so it was that Schmidt appeared on today's Morning Joe, and unleashed a veritable hailstorm of hyperbole about impeachment, including the allegation that the facts surrounding this impeachment effort "exceed by orders of magnitude anything that occurred in Watergate."
It was on Friday that Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough was upset that Louisiana Senator John Kennedy called Speaker Nancy Pelosi "dumb." But that was then and this is now. Apparently, Scarborough doesn’t remember what he says from day-to-day. On Monday, he was up to his old tricks questioning whether President Trump is a Russian agent or simply a useful idiot.
When it comes to insulting and disrespecting President Trump in crude terms, Joe Scarborough is the veritable Don Rickles of political pundits. And so, Scarborough's faux-outrage rant this morning about a line Republican Senator John Kennedy used about Nancy Pelosi could go down as one of the most egregious examples of hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness in recorded television history.
Joe Scarborough goes on a sneering rant, claiming President Trump's rally in Kentucky caused the incumbent Republican governor, Matt Bevin, to lose. Scarborough repeatedly refers to the president as "Donald," at one point calling him, "son."
On Morning Joe, "MSNBC Republican" Elise Jordan calls "criminal" President Trump's comment that the former US ambassador to Ukraine was "going to go through some things." She seems to suggest that Trump's comment was worse than Hillary Clinton's failure to protect US ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, who was murdered, violated, and dragged through the streets by a mob in Benghazi.
Throughout MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday, host Mika Brzezinski and her panel of liberal pundits repeatedly fretted over far-left 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren proposing a radical $50 trillion Medicare-for-all plan. Brzezinski, who has been an adoring fan of Warren, warned that the extreme plan was “unrealistic,” “confusing,” and “as likely to pass as Mexico paying for the wall.”
Joe Scarborough turns his lonely eyes . . . to Fox News? Looks that way. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough dreamed of a scenario in which Fox News would turn against President Trump, thus bringing down his presidency. Scarborough analogized it to a "Cronkite moment." That was the moment in 1968 when CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite essentially declared the Vietnam War unwinnable, thereby turning a chunk of American public opinion against it. LBJ was reported as having said at the time, “if I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost Middle America.”
