Surprising candor from Chris Cuomo . . . CNN host Cuomo was discussing the Obama birther issue with Bernie Sanders this morning [it’s expected that Trump will make a statement on the matter today.] Sanders mentioned that no one ever asks whether he was born in America despite the fact that...

Hillary managed to get through her speech in North Carolina today appearing reasonably well. But by the time she got to a short press availability afterwards, she seemed noticeably more tired.

And when she started to field some challenging questions about her secretive nature, including the fact that she had hidden her...

Americans of color to the rescue? That’s how MTV‘s Ana Marie Cox sees it. Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, Cox said: “I feel like if Hillary Clinton wins in the fall, it will be because the black and brown people of America have saved us, like they do a lot of time.”

Can you imagine the absolute outrage on the left if a conservative pundit suggested that a male Democrat candidate was a “pansy?” The cries of “homophobia” would echo through the land, amidst demands that the offending pundit be defenestrated.

But on today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski wondered out loud if Mike Pence...

How deeply has Joe Scarborough dived into Hillary’s tank? On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough offered Hillary a script of how she should attack “right-wing Republicans.”

Howard Dean was so impressed by Scarborough’s work on Hillary’s behalf that he exclaimed “I actually think you could actually be her speechwriter. That’s exactly what she...

As liberal pundits go, I find Sam Stein among the least objectionable—a low bar to be sure. The HuffPo editor has a streak of fairness to him. But on today’s Morning Joe, Stein served up some absurd spin on Hillary’s “basket of deplorables.”

“Deplorables,” according...

Let’s say it simply: Joe Scarborough has become a shameless pro-Hillary shill. On the big issues of the day: Hillary’s health collapse and her “basket of deplorables,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook himself could not have spun things for Clinton more audaciously than did Scarborough on today’s Morning Joe.

Joy Reid has to be the rudest “host” on American TV. On her misnamed AM Joy show, Reid has made an art form out of interrupting and shutting down “guests” who don’t toe her liberal line. We’ve reported how Reid abruptly ended a segment when a conservative Latino tried to mention Planned...

The opening segment of today’s Morning Joe was a Niagara of negativity deluging Donald Trump, focused on his comments at the Commander-in-Chief Forum. No discussion of Hillary Clinton’s newest lies about her email, and the fact that, in order to create a veil of secrecy for her Foundation malfeasance, she subverted our...

Wow! Veteran political strategist Mary Matalin is not just “confident” that Donald Trump is going to win, she thinks he has an 85-90% chance of winning. And even that is conservative compared to the 100% chance she originally claimed during her appearance on today’s With All Due Respect.

On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough took off his neurologist’s hat and put on the campaign consultant’s cap. Scarborough’s advice to Hillary: refuse to answer any more questions about her emails.

I lived and worked in Mexico at the beginning of my career. Loved the country, the people, the culture. Was offered a permanent position. Tempting, but couldn’t do it for one key reason: the absolutely endemic corruption. From the “policeman” on the corner shaking you down for an illusory infraction right...
