No longer laying low, Chris Christie showed up on Morning Joe today — where he proceeded to trash Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), one of the few political figures even more widely disliked than he is. The topic was the politics of disaster relief after Hurricane Sandy and now, following Harvey’s devastation of the Lone Star […]
“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 […]
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.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, neoconservative pundit Bill Kristol berated the Republican Party for rushing through an unpopular bill that has already faced brutal condemnation from the American Medical Association. At the end of the segment, Kristol predicted that the GOP bill is “going to fall apart and there will not be a vote.”
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.
It looks to a lot of people like NBC and MSNBC are shifting right in order to compete for the GOP audience and appeal to Trump himself.

But as Fox News could tell them, once you start giving in and moving to the right, you may have a hard time stopping.
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.
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.
The toxic stew of ideological proxy warring in Syria should be a softball topic for any Libertarian, let alone the leader of the entire party.
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.
“When you’re in a hole, stop digging,” said panelist Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations. “And this is not just digging with a small shovel. This is digging with one of those big earth movers.”
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.
