Trump Morning Joe 8-3-16

We reported yesterday on Joe Scarborough’s statement that Republicans, conservatives and so-called right-wing bloggers had been contacting him to ask about Donald Trump’s “mental health.” Scarborough himself called Trump “unhinged.”

Joe took things a significant step farther on today’s Morning Joe, saying that Republicans have been contacting him, asking themselves “is Donald...

Wednesday night, Sen. Ted Cruz was booed off the Republican National Convention stage when attending delegates realized the good Senator had zero plans to endorse Donald Trump. Instead, he encouraged people to, “vote their conscience.”

There’s a lot to unpack here: RNC reaction, Trump reaction, Cruz’s reasons, and does any of this ...

This is now one of my top five favorite moments in convention speeches.

Senator Cruz was given a prime time slot in Wednesday’s Republican National Convention lineup.

Cruz didn’t encourage convention goers and watchers to vote Trump, rather to vote their conscience. When delegates realized he wasn’t going to explicitly endorse...

John Heilemann came up with a strange way to defend Joe Biden and Barack Obama, and to attack Melania Trump, for the plagiarism in speeches each of them gave.

On today’s Morning Joe, Heilemann argued that Biden and Obama’s plagiarism wasn’t as bad, because they ripped off fellow liberals: Neil Kinnock and...

DRAMA Petition for Roll Call Vote Denied by RNC Elites mike lee ken cuccinelli cleveland roll call vote never trump

Chaos erupted on the Republican National Committee Floor Monday afternoon when a request for a roll call vote was denied by the party chair. The vote, which likely would’ve failed, would’ve unbound delegates, freeing them to vote their conscience.

But the vote never happened.

On the roll call vote’s first introduction,...

With all the money, all the resources, and all the graphic design talent at their disposal, the Trump campaign, in conjunction with the RNC’s joint fundraising committee, decided to roll with TP2016. T.P. Which, given how the 2016 cycle has gone, I suppose is par for the course.

John Heilemann, co-host of Bloomberg TV’s With All Due Respect, surely leans left, but is generally a savvy political analyst in my book. But Heilemann went haywire with his prediction today. He suggested that violence in the streets of Cleveland would hurt Donald Trump’s chances of being elected president.
