November 26th, 2014 7:10 PM
During Wednesday's edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe program, Joe Scarborough asserted that if he behaved like 18-year-old Michael Brown did during the August 9 incident in Ferguson, Mo., a police officer would have reacted the same way Darren Wilson did even though the co-host is “a white guy.” “There are two criminal justice systems in America,” Scarborough claimed…

Q. When it comes to the release of five of the worst of the worst Gitmo detainees, what does Eugene Robinson know that the Pentagon doesn't?  A.

Mika Recruits Rattner To 'Root' For Elizabeth Warren

December 16th, 2013 10:06 AM
In her continuing campaign to promote Elizabeth Warren's presidential prospects, Mika Brzezinski has attempted to recruit an unlikely ally: Steve Rattner. Rattner--President Obama's former "car czar"--is an investment manager and what passes for a moderate in the modern Dem party.  The notion that he would support leftist Elizabeth Warren in a Dem primary is far-…

Mika Brzezinski: Ted Cruz Doesn't Love This Country

October 7th, 2013 10:48 AM
Dontcha love it when liberals accuse people they don't agree with of not loving their country? It's especially delicious watching the perilously liberal Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC's Morning Joe Monday point her holier than thou finger at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), a man who just two weeks ago stood for 21 hours on the floor of the Senate demonstrating for the entire world how much he…

Trapped Rattner: Republicans Opposing Debt Ceiling Rise 'Terrorists

September 26th, 2013 8:09 AM
Pundits and politicians are normally so slick that they can weasel their way out of even the most glaring of contradictions. "Depends on what the meaning of is, is," anyone?  So it's particularly delicious, to use Noel Sheppard's trademark phrase, to see a talking head left absolutely cornered, babbling without response, when caught in the hypocrisy of a double-standard…

August 29th, 2013 4:10 PM
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski vehemently criticized Miley Cyrus’s lewd display during Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” at the MTV Video Music Awards, but Brzezinski herself has blurred the lines between morning show anchor and social activist.

Scarborough Defends Conservative Republicans, Schools Liberal Panel In

July 25th, 2013 2:07 PM
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has been making some fairly conservative arguments on his program as of late. On Thursday’s Morning Joe, for instance, he took his liberal guests to task, blasting Politico’s Jim VandeHei and The New York Time’s Steve Rattner for characterizing the House GOP as a do-nothing, radical conference. Scarborough insisted that Republicans have stood for…

MSNBC's Roberts: 2012 Was GOP's 'Last Real Viable Chance' at Presidenc

July 2nd, 2013 1:39 PM
In September 2012, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took a shot at frequent Morning Joe panelist and guest host Mike Barnicle, griping that the liberal made his morning show a “Marxist variety hour.” That observation was justified again Tuesday, as guest host Barnicle’s all-liberal panel bashed House Republicans for the second day in a row – this time on immigration reform…

Donny Deutsch: Senators Against Expanded Background Checks Have Blood

May 3rd, 2013 12:37 PM
Once again, MSNBC has outdone itself with extreme comments on the subject of gun control.  The morning after MSNBC anchor Martin Bashir sacrilegiously altered the Lord's Prayer to portray the NRA as ghoulishly bloodthirsty,  Morning Joe panelist Donny Deutsch railed against members of Congress who oppose expanding background checks.  At one point in his tirade, Deutsch…

H/t NB reader Ray R. Though former car czar Steve Rattner played a supporting role, the two main combatants…

Obama Czar Rattner Decries 'Climate-Change Deniers'—But Flies Big Pr

January 29th, 2013 11:53 AM
I hate to criticize a fellow pilot, but when one engages in such sky-high hypocrisy, well . . . On Morning Joe today, former Obama car czar Steve Rattner, a very successful hedge fund manager, decried "climate-change denier[s]." This is the same Rattner who, at last report, owned a "15,000-square-foot mansion on Martha’s Vineyard, to which [he] flies regularly on a…

Obama Czar Rattner: Colin Powell Feels 'Hostility' From GOP Because He

January 14th, 2013 8:34 AM
Oh those racist Republicans.  Did you know that they're hostile to Colin Powell because he's black? Yup, just ask former Obama car czar Steve Rattner.  The Morning Joe regular today claimed that poor Powell "feels this hostility toward him from the rest of the party in part because he's a minority." Really?  Colin Powell feels hostility from "the…
