There are many vitriolic anti-Trump regulars on Morning Joe. Elise Jordan ranks right up there with the “best” of them. Interesting, considering that Jordan is a Republican, having worked for President George W. and on the Rand Paul campaign. Perhaps that explains it: bitter aftertaste from the primaries?

There has been a lot of attention in the past couple of days to the statistical disconnect between what is of importance to the media versus what is important to the public.

Not surprisingly, the media is all Russia, Russia, Russia. The public not so much.

Give Joe Scarborough credit. Just when we were getting bored with all the Trump/Nazi analogies, Joe has come up with a new one. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough compared Trump press secretary Sean Spicer to an old Soviet spokesman and propagandist.
