To listen to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards on today’s Morning Joe, you’d think her organization was mainly about “health care” for women—not about being the nation’s largest abortion provider.

As you’ll see in the video clip, Richards manages to mention “health care” seven times in her interview with Mika Brzezinski. The...

An extraordinary first half-hour of Morning Joe today. The thesis was that President Trump had gotten off on a seriously bad foot by failing to look back at history in his inauguration speech, sending a first and ungracious tweet about the Women’s Marches, sending Sean Spicer out to berate the press...
