After today’s Morning Joe played a montage various Trump administration members praising the president, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough savaged them as “robots” and “stooges” who sounded like people in countries like North Korea and Iran.

Of course, President Obama didn’t need people in his administration to praise him. He had the liberal media doing that for him, free of charge. Check out, courtesy of our friends at NewsBusters, this assemblage of the MSM drooling over Obama.

Not that there weren’t members of the Obama administration willing to fawn over their leader. Remember Valerie Jarrett saying this?

“I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. … He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. … So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. … He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

For that matter, President Obama wasn’t reluctant to praise himself.

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

After montage plays . . . 

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Mmm. Covfefe!

. . .

JOE SCARBOROUGH: This is the language of autocrats. This is the language of dictators.

MIKA: To have robots spewing that.

JOE: This is the language employed by stooges in North Korea, in Iran, in Russia.

MIKA: You’re so right.

JOE: And coming to a country like Turkey soon, in countries like Turkey.
