On CNN, David Axelrod admits that President Obama gave an underwhelming speech on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, actually making matters worse. But Axelrod goes on to claim that Obama's speech was "like the Gettysburg Address" compared to President Trump's Oval Office address on the coronavirus.
Joe Scarborough proved once again this morning that there is virtually nothing that the liberal media can't spin into a positive for one of its own. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough claimed that Joe Biden telling a construction worker that he was "full of s---" on gun control was proof of Biden's humanity, and that he was a "fighter."
Monday’s Morning Joe served as an encapsulation of liberal media fear-mongering over the coronavirus, engaging in cheerleading for hysteria and economic ruin. Panelists chided that the “callous and immoral” and “sick” response employed by President Trump and his administration and, as co-host Joe Scarborough warned, Americans will die from the virus because of Trump’s “stupidity.”
The liberals with the Morning Joe program on MSNBC closed out the work week by slamming President Trump for having a “clumsy, ham-fisted” and “sociopathic” response to the coronavirus outbreak across the country. Leading the way was Joe Scarborough, who accused the GOP official of spreading disinformation and telling people “to go back to work if they want to,” which he called “the quickest way to turn this epidemic into a pandemic.”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough calls Chuck Schumer's attack on Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh "deeply disturbing" and "reprehensible." He says it is right for Chief Justice Roberts to have rebuked Schumer. But Joe goes on to sarcastically say that he expects Roberts and Mitch McConnell to also rebuke President Trump for attacking federal judges.
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."
On Morning Joe, Scarborough makes an impassioned plea, suggesting that "after four years of Donald Trump, maybe we need to go back to square one with the Obama administration and then move forward from there." He was unhappy Obama was described as a "conservative sellout," and Scarborough knows about being a sellout.
Just two weeks ago, Joe Scarborough was penning what amounted to a political eulogy for Biden. Today, the show was portraying Biden as a virtual goliath. Leading the pack was Mike Barnicle, who claimed that in the free media that followed his South Carolina win, Biden: "looked like an ordinary empathetic, humble, compassionate human being. A striking contrast to the president of the United States." In fact, the vainglorious Biden has a history of bragging, and even lying, about his accomplishments.
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday, the Morning Joe crew was insisting that Mike Bloomberg immediately drop out of the race to clear the field for Biden and prevent a Sanders nomination. Today, after airing Bloomberg's wide-ranging interview with Kasie Hunt, Morning Joe was overflowing with praise for him!
Broad consensus on Morning Joe that to stop Bernie Sanders, Bloomberg should walk the plank and let Joe Biden compete with Sanders one-on-one. The "be gone, Bloomie" scenario was predicated on the assumption that Biden will handily win the South Carolina primary this Saturday.
Joe Scarborough caught a lot of flak from the left earlier this week for suggesting that Elizabeth Warren drop out of the race. Just wait till the lefties get hold of what Scarborough & Co. said this morning about Warren's sustained attacks on Mike Bloomberg during last night's debate. The panel variously described Liz's arrows [you should excuse the expression] against poor Bloomie as "extreme, uncomfortable, bizarre, absurd."
On CNN's New Day, Alisyn Camerota frets that Bernie Sanders, he who preaches "revolution," might be too "nuanced" to take on President Trump. On MSNBC, Joe Scarborough suggests that Elizabeth Sanders drop out in order to "consolidate efforts" against Sanders. This despite Warren being in Sanders's far-left lane, so that if she dropped out, surely many of her supporters would "consolidate" around Sanders!
