Early in this presidential election cycle, Mika Brzezinski was a big Elizabeth Warren booster, repeatedly urging the Massachusetts senator to throw her hat into the ring. So it was nothing short of stunning to see Brzezinski go on a blistering attack against Warren on today’s Morning Joe.

The segment began with a...

Something to give—surprised—thanks for this morning: an MSNBC anchor staunchly defending school choice and Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education . . . while ably and aggressively arguing the issues with the head of America’s biggest teachers’ union!

Imagine if just after the 2008 election, a conservative pundit had said this of President-elect Obama: “how do you dog-train Obama? I mean it tough. Dog train. If he poops in the hall, you make his nose go in it.” Western civilization as we know it might have ended right there.

Last week, we reported on Morning Joe ripping the notion of Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State, with Joe Scarborough saying “he’s temperamentally not qualified to be, and he’s not qualified to be it based on any experience or training or any contacts.”

This morning, the show was still on its anti-Rudy...

Giuliani was described as completely unqualified for the job, and someone who has personally profited off national security matters, a la the Clintons. Bolton w...

On her MSNBC show this evening, Maddow suggested that Trump might betray the most sensitive intelligence to the Russians—including the identity of US spies. She questioned whether US intelligence agencies should provide Trump with...

This is a tough time to be a progressive.

There is a widespread mental breakdown in nests of radicalism, like Ithaca. I take no pleasure in that. Seriously. Come on you guys, seriously, no joy whatsoever.

I’m not like John Ekdahl.

But precisely because of Trump’s supposed fascist fear-mongering, Sullivan predicted that “Trump is going to win this election.”
