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. The Trump administration’s increasing comfort with MSNBC and NBC only reinforces this theory. 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.
Jeb Bush has now been reduced to defending his losing candidacy — by publicly debating the last losing Republican candidate, and to stand up for George W.
Graham delivered a Don Rickles-style take on the major players in the presidential campaign — and a Rodney Dangerfield perspective on his own campaign.
My instincts told me that if we just gave the Hillary email story another poke or two, the whole house of cards would collapse.
The two biggest-name Republican candidates clearly don’t like each other very much, but they do appear to agree on one thing: There’s nothing more we can do about mass shootings.
Trump is entertaining if you can ignore that he wants to be leader of the free world. He’s funny if you think racism and misogyny are great punchlines. If you’re not on board with that, you may think Trump deserves the toughest of questions, the ones Ramos wants to ask.
Obscured by sensational and often stupid media coverage, the fundamental facts are simple. There is no evidence that Hillary Clinton violated any rule or law in her use of a private email server, however badly advised.
