Montel Williams has interviewed enough troubled teens over the years to know that they shouldn’t be buying guns. And he’s observed Republicans long enough to know that the petty obsessions of the GOP tend to drown out empathy and common sense. In this MSNBC clip, Williams rips the Party of Lincoln for caring more about […]
It’s morning on Saturday Night Live, and that means Morning Joe, hosted by those cooing lovebirds Joe Scarborough (Alex Moffat) and Mika Brzezinski (Kate McKinnon), along with their revolted sidekick Willie Geist (Mikey Day). The guest is of course author Michael Wolff (Fred Armisen), played with appropriate asperity as he reveals the White House secrets […]
“Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough made a surprising announcement on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday: The former Florida Republican Congressman is giving his party the boot.
By the time you read this, the historic meeting in Hamburg between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will be over and — notwithstanding the propensity of both principals to lie their asses off — we will know something about what transpired. But as the Morning Joe crew noted earlier today, Trump’s behavior in the hours […]
Reprinted with permission from Media Matters. MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough described President Donald Trump’s “unmoored behavior” in a Washington Post column where they alleged that “this year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked.” Brzezinski […]
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.
In this SNL sketch’s highlight, the Morning Joe duo field a phone call from “John Miller,” a fake identity formerly used by Donald Trump to place gossip items about his own sexual prowess and other fake news, voiced by the great Alec Baldwin.
For Joe Scarborough, the only thing more bizarre than Jeff Sessions’ press conference Thursday recusing himself from an ongoing White House investigation was its timing.
After running a proto-fascist campaign, President-elect Donald Trump will bring his hate, misogyny, and bigotry to the White House at the end of the month. And when he does, NBC will have a machine ready to normalize him. In short, Fox News finally has competition.
On November 19, The New York Times reported that Trump “still maintains the routine that sustained him during the campaign,” which includes “often seek[ing] out” advice from Scarborough.
Rudy Giuliani’s self-serving bluster is so cringeworthy that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough literally groaned in pain at his latest antics.
Defending Donald Trump isn’t easy these days, and Ben Carson displayed much spirit in the attempt. But a question from British correspondent Katty Kay badly irritated the neurosurgeon.
Based on the Clintons’ sworn interrogatories, interviews with 45 other witnesses, and some 200,000 documents, the Pillsbury firm’s findings, published in several volumes, fully exonerated both Bill and Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing.
Pages 435-426 of Man of the World may suggest why Joe Scarborough was so irritated that he would attack me when I was no longer present to defend myself and my work — and it certainly shows why his verbal indictment of the Clinton Foundation was so wrong.
Ask any on-the-fence Hillary Clinton supporter why it is that they can’t throw their weight behind The Donald, and their answer usually comes down to one thing: Nukes. “I can’t image his stubby, paranoid little fingers on the nuclear trigger,” they’ll say. And they’re right.
Imagine Vladimir Putin in Joe Scarborough’s place — or David Cameron, or Xi Jinping, or Raul Castro, or, for that matter, Mitch McConnell, or Tim Cook, or Ban Ki-moon. Will this man be the executive and diplomatic voice of the federal government?
This morning, MSNBC’s Morning Joe crew invited director and Hillary Clinton supporter Rob Reiner on for what became a wide-ranging discussion on the media’s role in creating Donald Trump, and the success Trump has had with one formally-marginalized segment of the Republican base. Namely: racists. But when Reiner dared to say that treacherous r-word, the show went […]
The ‘Morning Joe’ host hit back at widespread accusations that he and his show had gone easy and helped to facilitate the rise of a political demagogue.
For too long, right-wing pundits and politicians seemed much more disturbed by Donald Trump’s past positions on healthcare, abortion, and guns than his current appeals to racism, xenophobia, and violence.
I contacted 22 people, which is 22 more people than I usually contact for a column, to ask them their predictions for Trump’s running mate.
