Republican congressman Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has to be one of the best-informed, well-spoken, reasonable, fairly non-partisan Members of Congress. So when Royce appeared on today’s Morning Joe to discuss the latest atrocity in Syria, in which the Assad regime barrel-bombed an aid convoy, he was...

For those contemplating the appalling possiblity of a President Hillary Clinton, just consider: Elizabeth Warren, had she thrown her hat in the ring, might today be the Dem nominee.

On Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show tonight, the always-at-11-on-the-rage-meter Warren alleged that Donald Trump, by imagining what would happen if Hillary’s bodyguards laid down their arms, ...

Legal Insurrection readers who are also Rush Limbaugh fans know that one of El Rushbo’s pet peeves is the way liberals have tried to co-opt the term “our values” into their political lexicon.

There was a perfect—if annoying—illustration of the phenomenon on today’s With All Due Respect. In clips of Hillary and President...

A current GQ article detailed something that this Insurrectionist, as a regular monitor of Morning Joe, had observed: that Joe Scarborough went from being a Trump booster during the primaries to a vitriolic critic of The Donald during the general election campaign.

But a trend I sensed last week continued on today’s...

Talk about low-energy . . . Hillary Clinton sleepwalked through her reaction to news of the NYC bombing of last night. View the video and catch the somnambulistic former Secretary of State speaking, without conviction, in a dull monotone.

Seizing on Donald Trump’s suggestion that Hillary Clinton’s bodyguards should disarm and “let’s see what happens to her,” CNN went into full Clinton-campaign mode this morning.

Leading the charge was Christi Paul, whom CNN curiously bills as an “anchor” rather than the Clinton surrogate she appears to be. Said Paul to Trump supporter Jeffrey...

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...

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.”

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.”

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.

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.
