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!
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.
The media are perspiring as a result of all the fire at Wednesday night's Democratic debate. Chief among those quaking in their anchor chairs are the leftist crew of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, who hosted one of the candidates, Senator Amy Klobuchar, on Thursday morning’s program.
Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe distorted an Axios report on President Donald Trump’s economy to credit former president Barack Obama. The show ran a segment defending Obama’s tweet congratulating himself for today’s booming economy.
Pity the poor liberal media. The Democrats staged a nasty debate last night, and the man who emerged the "big winner" was none other than... President Trump! So said Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch on today's Morning Joe. Making matters much worse, Donny divined that Bernie Sanders is "rolling" toward the nomination, yet has "no shot" at beating Trump. That left poor Donny "panicked. Absolutely panicked."
In today’s installment of media memory loss, the press seemed to blank on former President Obama’s clemency record and the praise they heaped upon him during his presidency. Early Wednesday morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough and political analyst Jason Johnson defamed President Trump as a ‘dictator’ for exercising his constitutional right of granting pardons and commutations.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says of Joe Biden, "I'm not doing his bidding. I'm just telling you the truth." And the truth, according to Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, is that Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders would be weak candidates, whereas Biden would have the best chance of defeating President Trump.
Despite the fact that Joe Scarborough has left the Republican Party and is cheerleading for any Democrat to win in 2020, he still occasionally pretends that his advice is to help his former party, not just ensure an endless Democratic majority. Scarborough on Tuesday talked to former Barack Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer and promoted his new book.
On Morning Joe today, Mika Brzezinski told Al Sharpton that he was in a position to grant Bloomberg a "pass" on racial issues, and that Bloomberg is certainly "looking for it." And Mika wondered whether Bloomberg would "put his money where his mouth is?" What is she asking? That Bloomberg give money to Sharpton's National Action Network?
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says that AG Bill Barr, by saying that some of President Trump's tweets make it impossible for Barr to do his job, is actually saying is "that these tweets make it harder for Bill Barr to help him be corrupt."
