Joe Scarborough Fills Piece on Trump, Giuliani With Assumptions

MSNBC’s headline “Joe: Rudy Giuliani made the president look foolish,” runs atop a “Morning Joe” segment about Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, who has given recent press interviews critical of the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation, calling it the most corrupt investigation the former New York Mayor has ever seen. Without providing evidence or […]

Morning Joe’s Brzezinski: Trump is ‘A Stone-Cold Racist’

Following up on MSNBC’s “Everyday Racism in America” town hall Tuesday, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski blamed President Trump for what she sees as an uptick in racist incidents and called him a “stone-cold racist.” Brzezinski didn’t originate the charge against Trump — that was made by MSNBC political analyst and McCain 2008 presidential campaign manager […]

Morning Joe Host Puts Double-Standard on Display

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski illustrated the mainstream media’s double-standard about inclusivity, tolerance and separating policy disagreements from personal attacks.

MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough blasted CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, calling his spat with presidential adviser Stephen Miller on Wednesday “like something out of ‘Mein Kampf.’” While other members of the “Morning Joe” panel thought both Acosta and Miller were obnoxious, they were more critical of Acosta for the way he characterized the Trump administration’s new […]

Even MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ Criticized Democrats’ ‘Better Deal’ Slogan

The Democratic Party’s new campaign slogan, “Better Deal,” even got a tepid and dismissive response from liberals at MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show. If that’s not telling, what is? Remember, the slogan was initially mocked on social media as a copy of the slogan for the pizza chain Papa John’s, “Better Ingredients, Better Pizza, Papa John’s”.

Remember This? ‘Morning Joe’s’ Joe Scarborough once said Trump has Qualities like Ronald Reagan

Hypocrisy at its finest? MSNBC’s ‘The Morning Joe’ host Joe Scarborough used late-night TV to announce he’s leaving the Republican Party due to Donald Trump. However, he and others in the liberal media establishment (the latter praising his defection) forgot that Scarborough once said that Trump mirrored qualities of President Ronald Reagan: The “Morning Joe” […]

After Outcry, MSNBC Won’t Release Correspondence between Trump and ‘Morning Joe’ Hosts

After much hoopla and outcry, MSNBC will not release any correspondence to the public between President Donald Trump and MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ hosts, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
