For months, we’ve been chronicling Joe Scarborough’s increasingly anti-Trump statements, as the Morning Joe host Scarborough called the president a “schmuck” and a “jackass,” and repeatedly questioned the president’s mental health, as here and here.

Scarborough now appears to have hit rock-bottom [excuse the pun], with his release of a music video portraying...

One of our categories here at Legal Insurrection is “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” Over at Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski provides a prime example of the malady.

We noted yesterday how Mika was pushing poor Jon Meacham into drawing parallels between President Trump, the Nazis, and North Korea. Brzezinski ratcheted things up a notch...

On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski strongly suggested that President Trump is in cahoots with the Russians, saying “it’s kind of hard not to think that [Trump] might be in on some sort of scheme.”

Earlier, Mika recycled the Trump/Nazi card. She invited Jon Meacham to draw a historical parallel to President...

If Dems were smart, they’d watch and learn from the opening segment of today’s Morning Joe.

In his item of last night, Prof. Jacobson noted how Dems were taking the wrong lesson from the election, claiming that a close loss was a win. The message from Morning Joe was starkly different.

When in the market for political prognostication, I always like to rely on the conjectures of ad men who still refer to Russia as “the Soviet Union.”

On today’s Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch labeled President Trump a “sleazy businessman,” and said that “financial wrongdoings with the Soviet Union” will “bring this...

Yes, let’s all come together, hold hands, unite . . . and blame President Trump for the shooting of Steve Scalise and others yesterday. Morning Joe opened today with predictable pieties, Joe Scarborough saying, for example, that “the heated rhetoric in this country has to calm down.”

But before the show’s first...

In the wake of the Kathy Griffin severed-head fiasco, and the Central Park play depicting the assassination of President Trump, you’d think that pundits might have the good sense to lay off metaphors invoking the violent death of the president.

But today comes law prof Jonathan Turley with yet another sanguinary simile....

Two months ago, we reported on Morning Joe going “Crazy over Trump’s Mental Health.” The show was back on that beat today, with two variations on the theme.

First, panel members were able to cite a Wall Street Journal editorial harshly criticizing President Trump for his tweeting habits, describing him as a...

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...

After today’s Morning Joe played a montage various Trump administration members praising the president, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough savaged them as “robots” and “stooges” who sounded like people in countries like North Korea and Iran.

Of course, President Obama didn’t need people in his administration to praise him. He had the...

If, say, Greg Gutfield had held up a realistic-looking severed head of the previous president, do you think Morning Joe would have refused to cover the story? But on today’s Morning Joe, when a panelist made reference to “the Kathy Griffin news,” Mika Brzezinski put her foot down:

Today’s Morning Joe aired a mock anti-Republican ad that its staff created.

Scarborough said he told “the kids in the back that work for us” to “draw up an ad that will look like what we’re going to see next year.”

As you’ll see from the video clip, the ad is predictable campaign...

The MSM is hating President Trump’s foreign trip. Why? Because it takes the spotlight off what they’d much rather be covering: the investigations back home into Russian involvement in the election. Yesterday, we witnessed a CNN host fretting that President Trump’s successful speech in Saudi Arabia might be “normalizing” him.
