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.

On Hillary’s collapse, Scarborough...

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.

A few days ago, we reported on “Dr.” Joe Scarborough declaring that Hillary Clinton “doesn’t have” any health issues. 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.

On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski teased an upcoming segment with James Carville and Steve Schmidt by saying it would be a “debate.” But the only contest between the two was to see who could be more critical of Donald Trump.

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...

UPDATE: Looks like Scarborough was parroting a Clinton campaign talking point. John Podesta, chair of the Hillary for America PAC, had put out a press release entitled “Trump Choked,” and repeating that c-word a couple of times in the release. Maybe Morning Joe can cut out the middleman, dispense with hosts, and...

On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, conservative Latino Alfonso Aguilar cited Hillary Clinton’s praise of the eugenicist Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.

This would be funny if it weren’t so ironically hypocritical.

In recent days, Donald Trump has made a concerted effort to moderate the tone, and some would say the substance, of his campaign. So how does a notable member of the MSM reward him? By analogizing him in explicit terms to a Nazi.
