Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

The gang on Morning Joe all felt very dirty this morning, as they reacted to Sarah Palin’s recent comment, where she blamed President Obama for her son’s arrest for alleged domestic violence.

Track Palin, she said, not only suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder as an Iraq War veteran — but his PTSD was really President Obama’s fault, because the troops “have to look at him and wonder” if they are respected.

Said panelist Donny Deutsch: “It’s one of the most offensive things I’ve ever heard any politician say, basically,” to claim that Track Palin allegedly punched his girlfriend because “Barack Obama is somehow connected. I mean, shame on you, Sarah Palin.”

Lead host Joe Scarborough commented: “I think actually the Trump campaign needs to send her home, and let her take care of her family problems, and not make it part of his campaign.”

“She doesn’t need to be on the campaign trail,” he added. “She needs to be back with her family, and needs to stop being a distraction to Donald Trump — and stop trying to raise money, and exploit Donald Trump for money.”

Donald Trump Jr.

You've probably heard about Donald Trump's claim that his Democratic rival got "a big fat se onhot in the ass" before delivering a nearly perfect performance on a recently televised town hall. Or his more recent demand that Joe Biden get a "drug test" before their debate on Tuesday night. Having spent months lowering expectations for Biden, the Trumps are now busily defaming him as a junkie.

But that particular slur backfired spectacularly over the weekend when the Trump campaign posted a bizarre video of Don Jr. -- seemingly in a condition that called for rehab services. As his father might put it, "many people are saying" that the presidential spud looked and sounded like someone abusing a controlled substance. (His slurred message was disturbed too, something about an "army of able-bodied men and women" to intimidate voters).

It's both funny and sad to watch Don Jr. decompensate on Twitter. (More funny, though.)

Click and judge his condition for yourself.
