MSNBC’s Morning Joe Is Colluding With Donald Trump!

DonJoeMikaAn audio recording came to light yesterday that was recorded during commercial breaks at a town hall meeting hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. The recording caught Joe and Mika fawning over and colluding with Donald Trump on what questions they would ask. There is no other way to describe it besides collusion, but of course, our illustrious media has found other ways.

A Youtube clip with the audio is posted below. Listen for yourself.

Their are several instances in the recording where it becomes very clear that Joe and Mika are taking cues from and actively trying to help Donald Trump.

“You know what I thought was kind of a wow moment, was the guy you brought up on stage,” Brzezinski began by telling Trump.

“We played it several times this morning,” Scarborough put in.

“I watched your show this morning,” Trump responded. “You have me almost as a legendary figure, I like that.”

After that, Brzezinski thanked Trump for agreeing to the interview. “You, you get great ratings and a raise,” he told her. “Me, I get nothing.”

This will make us all look good,” Trump said, to which Scarborough replied, “Exactly.”

Anyone who thinks that isn’t collusion is out of their mind. How could it be called anything else? Later on in the recording, they discuss what questions to ask and Trump helps them out. Both Joe and Mika just keep gushing over him, almost like they are star struck. They are very serious journalists, you know?

Brzezinski then tried to ask Scarborough about a question she planned to ask Trump, trying to be discreet but eventually giving away the subject. “Do you not want me to do, the um, the ones with, um, deportation?”

“We really do have to go to some questions,” Scarborough responded.

“That’s right,” Trump agreed, before joking, “Nothing too hard, Mika.”

“Okay,” Brzezinski can be heard telling someone. In the end, there were no questions about immigration or deportations during the town hall.

I woke up this morning and decided to break my vow to never watch Morning Joe again and flipped to MSNBC to see if they were still on the air. Sure enough, there they were – Donald Trump’s biggest supporters on my television pretending like they are journalists as they promote their “legendary figure.” As Donald Trump said, “I like that!”

A Collection Of Scarborough Smack Downs, F-bombs and Rudeness!

This post was inspired by a link from the very cool @cindyloveseric on Twitter, if you are on Twitter and not following her, you are nuts. This first clip is probably my favorite Scarborough smackdown of all time. Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, father of sidekick Mika, just nails him at :25 seconds, but start from the beginning.

This next one is classic Keith Olbermann, sometimes ally and sometimes hater of Democrats and POTUS. Keith’s awesome line starts around :55 seconds. Interesting also that Joe cites Bush’s 82% wrong track poll number, when you look at Obama’s number (64%), it seems pretty good compared to ole W’s. But I’ve never ascribed that “Is the country on the wrong track” solely to whatever president is in office, the Congress is a large part of that IMO.

This next one is short, but good. Rachel Maddow lands a punch on Joe at :27 in the clip.

This is one of the many F-bombs that Scarborough has accidentally dropped on TV, it happens at :24 in the clip. Barnicle’s reaction is priceless.

This is a classic too, Paul Krugman tells Joe like it is at about 2:49 after Scarborough goes on a very idiotic rant.

Now this one completely offends me and it is Mika being very rude to Joan Walsh, another sometimes ally, sometimes enemy of Democrats. Watch the whole thing.

In this clip, Chris Matthews takes on Joe Scarborough’s hypocrisy, which Joe just loves. He is the most thin-skinned political shill I’ve ever seen. The good part starts about 2:16. Love it!
