Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

The way that Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough finish each other’s sentences on Morning Joe — now that they’ve announced their engagement — is too cute. But Kellyanne Conway probably isn’t charmed, because today MSNBC’s fun couple chattered on about her . And what they said wasn’t flattering.

“This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion,” began Mika. “And then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say, ‘Blecch, I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much.”

Joe chimed in, “And also said, it was very interesting, also said that, ‘This is just, like, my summer in Europe.’ ” And then Mika again, quoting Conway: “I’m just doing this for the money.”

Their blistering colloquy on Conway continued for another 30 seconds or so, short and not at all sweet, as the astonished panelists looked on. What started out as a pleasant morning for the president’s counselor, with a balanced profile of her husband George still drawing attention in the Washington Post, suddenly turned puckering sour.

Which makes it a don’t miss. So just click.

    Whether what Mika and Joe said about KellyAnne Conway is true, what she has done as a spokesperson for Donald Trump has put her in the position that no reputable organization will ever want to hire her; she will be able to find jobs only with organizations or politicians who want a spokesperson who will preach the organization’s policy, no matter how corrupt or dishonest that policy is. No matter who she represents in the future, anything she says to support her employer will be looked at as highly questionable and probably a lie, by everyone except the people who are already diehard supporters of that employer.

    There are so many ways to interpret this. One, Mika and Joe like Kellyanne and George Conway and want to boost Kellyanne’s moral character this way. Two, in a related way, they want to make sure George isn’t hired by Trump as a new White House lawyer (if he fires McGahn) or chief of staff (if he fires Reince Priebus) or in any other capacity the rumor mill has been floating. Three, they loathe Kellyanne and George Conway and want to get her fired and therefore stay in the so-called president’s good graces (as if), and too bad about George’s job prospects. Four, they had 111 seconds to fill at the end of the segment and just started blathering away, showing their essential shallowness, and complete lack of interest in the consequences of what they say. Five, all of the above. Six, none of the above. Seven. They were told to do so by Fox.

    I hope the writer’s characterization of Mika and Joe’s discussion as “cute” is sarcasm. Morning Joe is the epitome of everything that’s wrong with today’s mainstream media (I don’t include Fox as either news or mainstream, btw). Between the nauseating, ongoing, Joe/Mika soap opera, his constant blathering, her gazes, pouts, and syncopathic comments in support of him, and the endless parade of mostly GOP-friendly guests, the false equivalence ANY time they’re forced to criticize republicans (they do it too-ism), this show belongs in reality televisionland.

    “Know Your Value?” Oh, please, Mika. You lost YOUR value when you constantly fawned all over Joe, so please don’t preach to US via your book. As for him, in my view, he was never valuable as anything other than a right wing hack.

    I despise everything about Kellyanne Conway, but Morning Joe is advertised as a serious, news and discussion show. Gossip belongs on E! or TMZ. This show *should* be an utter embarassment to the network.

      I have to agree. If you haven’t seen last weeks cold open to SNL you need to check it out. It’s a riot satirizing the couple. The expressions given by the panelists is truly hysterical ????

        Oh, Dan, I saw that! It was deliriously delicious! Kate McKinnon’s exaggerated “Mika expressions” were pitch perfect. Alex Moffat was also good as Scarborough!

        I stopped watching them several years ago, but would “peek” occasionally to see how they were “spinning” a story or event.

        BTW, did you see John Oliver’s montage, in which he used numerous clips of them (a week ago Sunday)? That, too, was hilarious! Oliver said nothing, the clips of Joe and Mika spoke for themselves! ????????

    Maybe that is why Kellyanne says such stupid things. Maybe it is to take down the person she cannot abide by, but works for.

  5. Everyone by now should be getting at least an inkling of the havoc partisan politics is wreaking on American Society. People are so deranged by the obsession for money and to promote a political ideology that they will endure being humiliated in public, to make asses of themselves to make money, and will engage in duplicity in order to further selfish goals.
    Kellyanne, Spicer, FOX, Anne Coulter, and such are examples of individuals and entities who have willingly submitted to distorting their personalities beyond what we consider normal.

    And Right Wing media and those who’re swayed by such, by advocating the conservative ideology in particular, have been in the forefront of a decades-long campaign to cause a permanent rotting out of rational faculties of those who choose to immerse themselves in partisan politics, and extremist views.
