Scarborough Bashes GOP Senators for Not Demanding McCain Apology During Trump Meeting: ‘Stand Up!’

Joe Scarborough was not impressed with the Republican lawmakers who met with President Trump and failed to demand an apology from him over crass remarks made by an aide about Sen. John McCain. Though Mitch McConnell has said that Kelly Sadler should publicly apologize for her comments about the ailing Arizona senator, the Senate majority leader and his colleagues didn’t say a word about this when they had lunch with Trump on Tuesday. As Morning Joe noted how Trump has never said he was sorry for his nasty remarks about McCain, Mika Brzezinski said that demanding an apology from the White House is “like trying to make an apple stop rotting.” From there, Scarborough tore into the Congressional GOP by arguing that they clearly don’t have the courage to tell Trump man-to-man that he and his team are out of order. “Not one senator. Not one Republican senator Continue reading "Scarborough Bashes GOP Senators for Not Demanding McCain Apology During Trump Meeting: ‘Stand Up!’"

Joe Scarborough Rips ‘Oblivious’ Javanka Over Gaza Violence: ‘Completely Out of Touch’ With Reality

Joe Scarborough went after Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner on Tuesday for celebrating the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, supposedly blissfully unaware of the dozens of Palestinians in the Gaza strip being killed and injured by Israeli forces. The remarks came as Morning Joe covered the horrific details of the border conflict and the international implications they might entail. As Scarborough spoke to David Ignatius about the reported 58 people who were killed and the thousands more who were wounded on Monday, he turned his ire towards Trump and Kushner for how they mostly shrugged it all off as they opened the embassy. “For the rest of the world you actually saw an administration, a White House, and – we’ll say it since Ivanka Trump was there – a family completely out of touch with the realities of the region that they’re dealing with,” Scarborough said. “You Continue reading "Joe Scarborough Rips ‘Oblivious’ Javanka Over Gaza Violence: ‘Completely Out of Touch’ With Reality"

Morning Joe Mocks Jeanine Pirro’s Wild ‘Biblical’ Rant on Trump: ‘A Porn Star Will Be Born Unto You…’

In the beginning, God created Judge Jeanine Pirro. And it was… good? Pirro opened her Fox News show Saturday by saying that President Donald Trump‘s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem “sent Iranians, who are the descendants of Persia, a message to reflect on their own history.” “It was the King of Persia who, 1,000 years before Mohammed was even born, that said Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish people’s country,” Pirro said. “There will be no Ottoman Empires or Shia nations that will destroy Jerusalem any longer… Like King Cyrus before him, [Trump] fulfilled the biblical prophecy of the Gods worshipped by Jews, Christians and, yes, Muslims.” Joe Scarborough greeted this little biblical diatribe with nothing but scorn. (Mika Brzezinski‘s horrified face while Joe delivered the following was priceless.) “I think it is in Lamentations… the verse that she Continue reading "Morning Joe Mocks Jeanine Pirro’s Wild ‘Biblical’ Rant on Trump: ‘A Porn Star Will Be Born Unto You…’"

Morning Joe Laces Into Pence For His Call to End Mueller Probe: ‘Playing the Role of Spiro Agnew…’

“I think it’s a fair time to start asking this question,” said Joe Scarborough Thursday morning on MSNBC. “What did Mike Pence know and when did he know it?” Mike Pence is often spared of the venom spewed by the Morning Joe crew in the direction of President Donald Trump and many others in his administration. But Scarborough and company turned their ire upon the vice president following his comments to NBC’s Andrea Mitchell — in which he called for a hasty end to special counsel Robert Mueller‘s probe. “In the interest of the country, I think it’s time to wrap it up, and I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion,” Pence said. To Scarborough, that plea from the veep was a red flag. “Mike Pence has been claiming that he was just out in the dark,” the Continue reading "Morning Joe Laces Into Pence For His Call to End Mueller Probe: ‘Playing the Role of Spiro Agnew…’"

Joe Scarborough Mocks ‘Desperate’ Giuliani For Saying He’s Smarter Than MSNBC Host

Joe Scarborough is still going after Rudy Giuliani and he clearly doesn’t care if the former New York mayor-turned-Trump lawyer fires back. Morning Joe took time on Thursday to pour through the latest news about Michael Cohen‘s lobbying income and alleged involvement in pay-to-play access to President Trump. Giuliani has said that Trump was “unaware” of his personal lawyer’s consulting payments, and when Mika Brzezinski brought this up, she noted that Giuliani recently hit back at Scarborough after the MSNBC host called him erratic and a drinker. “He was very angry,” Brzezinski said. “He said he’s smarter than you.”

“I’m a lot more aware and intelligent than Joe has ever been, and a lot more accomplished,” Giuliani said in response to Scarborough’s remarks. “Joe hasn’t been knighted by the Queen of England. He hasn’t run a US attorney’s office, much less a city that he turned around, or Continue reading "Joe Scarborough Mocks ‘Desperate’ Giuliani For Saying He’s Smarter Than MSNBC Host"

Giuliani Fires Back at Joe Scarborough: I’m ‘More Aware and Intelligent’ Than He Is

Rudy Giuliani responded tonight to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough calling him erratic and, well, a few other things. On Tuesday morning, Scarborough said on air, of President Trump‘s lawyer, ” Everybody around Donald Trump said [Giuliani] was drinking too much. Donald Trump suggested as much. That was two years ago. And the fact that Donald Trump brought this guy in two years later despite his own reservations about him, almost two years ago, that’s not any, it’s not 3D chess. That’s not even checkers, That’s a monkey throwing poo against the wall and it doesn’t usually turn out well.” Giuliani spoke to Politico to refute claims that he’s erratic, and he had some choice words for Scarborough in particular:
“None of that is true,” Giuliani said of Scarborough’s remarks in an interview Tuesday afternoon. “I’m not sleeping now. I’m in Dallas. I’m wide awake. I’ve handled numerous cases Continue reading "Giuliani Fires Back at Joe Scarborough: I’m ‘More Aware and Intelligent’ Than He Is"
