Morning Joe: Scarborough Declares Bannon “President of United States”

Morning Joe: Scarborough Declares Bannon “President of United States”

While the panelists expose their disconnect with middle America.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5l27QQWr0k&feature=youtu.be

The battle between global elitism and nationalism was on display on today’s Morning Joe. The panelists exposed their own elitism while Joe Scarborough declared that—at least within the Trump administration—nationalism, in the person of Steve Bannon, is winning.

Scarborough reported that his sources tell him that Bannon has been leaking about Jared Kushner’s Russia contacts in an effort to “sideline” Kushner and preserve his own place within the administration. A bit later, Joe proclaimed Bannon “President of the United States,” given his influence over the actual president.

Here’s Scarborough’s declaration of Bannon as POTUS.

JOE: Do we have that old Time magazine article? I’m serious. Time magazine was right. Steve Bannon is President of the United States. He has gone in. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about policy. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about politics. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about anything. He can get up and give a good speech. You listen to him talk about any topic and he wanders from sentence to sentence to sentence. So Steve Bannon is now the President of the United States. And that was more clear yesterday than ever before, Mika.

MIKA: Which is about the worst thing that could happen to the United States.

Elitism Shows Disconnect With Middle America

  • Katty Kay of the BBC declared climate change probably “the most fundamental issue of our time.”

Questions for Katty:

Which would have more impact on the climate of Seattle? The US pulling out of a non-binding agreement, or a North Korean nuke landing on the Space Needle?”

Which is more “fundamental” to a guy trying to raise a family in eastern Kentucky: a possible three-inch rise in sea levels at some indeterminable point in the future, or the fact that coal mines are closing and he’s out of a job?”

  • Mika then mentioned that she met yesterday at the German embassy with a group of “really accomplished women” and that they were horrified and disgusted by Trump.

Yes, when you want to get your finger on the pulse of America, what better place to do it than with a group of “really accomplished women” who’ve been invited to the German embassy?

  • Mike Barnicle informed the Trump base that in about 10 years, they’d be buying “solar panels made in China at Home Depot.”

If Barnicle’s right, it won’t be because we’ve run out of fossil fuels. To the contrary—thanks to innovations in exploration and drilling—it’s likely that fossil fuel reserves ten years from now will be higher than they are today. If we’re forced to buy solar panels in 2027, it’ll be due to mandates imposed by politicians and bureaucrats.

Viva Solyndra, eh Mike?

    I think that’s called willful blindness.

    Or on the other hand, just partisan b.s.

    Either way, Joe Scarborough and Mike the Twit are about as useful as a band-aid on a bunion.

      MattMusson in reply to kenoshamarge. | June 2, 2017 at 12:00 pm

      This is not about Democrats vs. Republicans. This is everyone pile on Donald Trump.

      And, since they cannot smear the President, they are trying to make his staff out to be criminal.

    Funnier, is how these two irrelevant, corrupt hacks have become a main focus of this blog – to the exclusion of so much more important information that needs to be passed along.

      Congratulations, you just viewed this post and made a comment, which are part of blog statistics. If you come back to check if anyone responded to your comment, that’s another view. Snark about what I am saying, and that’s another comment statistic.

      There is a wide variety of topics on this site, so I would disagree that it is a major focus. If you really believe that, it means that you are not reading a lot of other posts.

      Concerning your complaint about lack of important information to be passed along, there is an option for you – start your own blog and write good articles, on a daily basis. Your name is a link to a blog, but it won’t be anything that I’ll read.

      Good lord.

    That’s because…..wait….let me give you the clinical terminology:

    “NUTS!”

casualobserver | June 2, 2017 at 10:23 am

MSNBC must have decided to amp up the anti-Trump antics because it is a gold mine for them so far. Even though it may be short lived. But the nutty and hyperbolic hysteria is certainly entertaining for those who don’t watch but see reports like these.

    Tom Servo in reply to casualobserver. | June 2, 2017 at 11:50 am

    I flipped by MSNBC last night (never stay long) and they were already off into the weeds of “oh this paris deal is just a big distraction Trump pulled because he is totes about to be impeached because RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA!!!”

    If you noticed yesterday CNN and NBC were both flogging a story saying “SESSIONS HAD A MEETING WITH THE RUSSIANS HE DIDN”T REPORT HE COMMITTED PERJURY!!!” and then at the very end of the story came this little disclaimer “okay no one has any actual proof that this actually happened but if it DID happen hoo boy, that would be something!!!”

    thus announcing once and for all that they are now simply going to make up stories and rumours every day, unconstrained by any need for that pesky thing called “evidence”, and run with it.

The tide has turned in the WH. Corey Lewandowski is back as a member of the Trump War Room and he has already made clear that his primary project will be to dislodge the GOP obstructionists in the House in front of next year’s elections. “Either get on the Trump Train or lose next year.” Without a likely very popular Trump endorsement next year, goo luck getting re-elected no matter how much help you get from the Speaker’s Campaign Fund.

Woohoo! The A-team is back! Let’s kick some RINO ass!

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Pasadena Phil. | June 2, 2017 at 5:08 pm

    Thanks Phil.

    Now I understand why the Democrats/Leftists have been screeching for the past few decades, “Save the RINO!”

If the DC elites have been turning to Morning Joe for news analysis and authoritative commentary, they should be turning away from it now that has descended into a platform for Joe and Mika to vent their unhinged personal hatred of Trump.
Unless, of course, like the rest of the leftist election deniers, they are seeking a “safe zone” of Trump hatred on MSNBC.

I’ve never seen this show, but only read about it here. Apparently, it’s on MSNBC, which means it has an audience of 13 petulant adolescents.

As such, methinks LI should stop giving these wack-a-doodles any attemtion, at all.

This ends my free advice.

    Mark watches these shows so we don’t have to watch them. His summaries of the major idiot points are enough for me. I appreciate it that Mark prints out the transcript so I don’t have to listen.

    If you don’t like these posts, just skip them and don’t give them the views. Stop commenting since that is also an indication of interest in the topic.

    I suspect that someone on their staff does read this blog and looks at the report and the comments.

      Anonamom in reply to Liz. | June 2, 2017 at 12:26 pm

      Exactly. Well said.

      Thank you for your indication of interest in my topic of discussion, but you misinterpret my meaning.

      You are correct in stating if I do not like the post, stop reading, but a denizen of this forum for many years, I’ve read many different posts from many different authors. The ‘MikaJoe Wack-a-doodle Show’ was mildly entertaining for me at first, a window to the laughable leftist lunacy masquerading as sponsored political discourse.

      But it’s worn thin. Familiarity breeds contempt. I was simply offering my polite critique of blog content based upon my own editorial experience in the digital world.

      That said, I accept your advice.

    It’s frequently claimed here that MSNBC has puny ratings.

    While Fox News used to trounce them, MSNBC has climbed much closer, and in fact recently beat Fox in the key demo during primetime. See link below.

    Moreover, Morning Joe has an influence beyond its ratings among political and media opinion makers, which makes it worth watching in my opinion.

    http://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/may-2017-ratings-for-first-time-since-2000-msnbc-beat-fox-news-cnn-on-weeknights/330611

    “…which means it has an audience of 13 petulant adolescents.”

    Might want to review the recent ratings of msnbc.

    Half the country are barking moonbats.

Well Morning Joe is a super smart expert so:

Re-elect Bannon 2020

kenoshamarge | June 2, 2017 at 11:33 am

I suppose the opinions of the silly people on this less than mediocre cable nonsense program matter to someone. I just can’t think who would be that foolish.

    Anonamom in reply to kenoshamarge. | June 2, 2017 at 12:33 pm

    From adweek.com: “In the mornings, Morning Joe defeated CNN’s New Day in total viewers for the 26th consecutive month. The program grew double digits in overall audience and in the A25-54 demo this past month versus April 2016. That said, Joe fell short to New Day in the demo that matters to advertisers of news.”

    Apparently increasing numbers of people ARE watching them. I think that it would behoove those of us on the right to at least pay attention to what they are saying.

I read dozens of websites every day but this is the only one that gives these hacks any coverage. Why bother, please drop them as I doubt anyone here would miss news about them.

    Skip these posts and don’t comment on them since those activities serve as an indication of interest.

    Or, maybe you didn’t know that websites collect such data?

    I rather give LI the views than watching the show or reading other sites for the same information. I just checked Drudge and he links to a site that is talking about Joe and Bannon. So, the clicks are there whenever Joe & Mika make outrageous remarks.

    Mark Finkelstein in reply to floridaman. | June 2, 2017 at 2:33 pm

    To readers who believe, like you, that this is the “only site” that covers Morning Joe, have a look, for example, at the current banner headline at Drudge, which is a link to a story about Scarborough saying Bannon is president.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to floridaman. | June 2, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    Mark is just practicing that old saying.

    “Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer!”

Well, at least I understand that Joe Scarborough thinks that Trump is such a mental midget that he will fall for such blatant reverse psychology. Whether or not Bannon really did leak such things, which I would not defend, Joe’s motives are transparent, and he thinks Trump is so much of an idiot as to listen to Joe and fly into an egotistical rage that would damage Trump’s presidency, which is the point.

    Tom Servo in reply to JBourque. | June 2, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    First, Scarborough is just running the standard Dem playbook against Republican Presidents – “He’s an evil genius who has to be stopped! Oh wait no he’s an idiot who just does what he’s told! No wait he really is behind it all! No wait he isn’t its someone else!” and on and on and on and on.

    Second, why so shocked that Trump did something that he’s been promising to do in speech after speech for over a year now? Did he really have to be “mind controlled” by someone else just to do what he always said he would do?

    Third, pretty funny that they are now claiming that Kushner was “set up” by Bannon – remember, MSNBC and CNN have been scouring weak rumours, making up stories, and pushing every nasty thing they could about Kushner, simply because he seemed to be close to Trump. But now, suddenly, they realize that what they’ve been doing might have had some effect and pushed him away from Trump, and they realize “oh my god, he was trying to talk Trump out of this, what have we done????” But they can’t admit that they did this themselves (which of course they did) so they invent a bogeyman to pin all of their own actions on.

    It is all so laughably pathetic.

Occasionally a blind squirrel will find a nut. That’s how I’ve felt about Scarborough these past years.

As it turns out that Scarborough is even less fortunate than that blind squirrel. This is no exception. No “nut”.

I’m pretty sure that Trump isn’t as foolish or stupid as Joe would like to make him out to be.

NewsBusters, Truth Revolt, Daily Caller, Daily Wire and Chicks on the Right are some of the conservative web sites that cover what’s said on Morning Joe. A lot of us think it’s a good thing to know what the Democrat Media is saying in order to fight them. Mentioning Morning Joe here is highly unlikely to drive LI’s users to watching it. I just don’t get the attitude of sticking one’s head in the sand and pretending there’s not an opposition playing on cable channels 24/7.

    Tom Servo in reply to dcnrmn. | June 2, 2017 at 12:36 pm

      Don’t forget the homeless

Moronic Joe…

Joe’s got his head so far up Mika’s derriere that he can’t possibly ascertain if it’s daylight, much less who’s running the country!
