MSNBC hosts speculate who leaked Mueller questions to New York Times reporter also sitting on the panel

Published

The Capitol Hill parlor game of attempting to discern the source of leaked questions special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly wants to ask President Donald Trump continued on Tuesday, as MSNBC’s Deadline: White House reported that two more people have denied spilling to reporters.

The New York Times reporter who wrote the story, Michael Schmidt, was on the panel.

“In discussing the questions, of course, we can’t pose that question directly to the witness here we have before us, Mike Schmidt,” noted Jeremy Bash, the NBC News national security analyst who served as Chief of Staff at the Pentagon and CIA.

“He’d shoot all of us before he’d tell us who any of his sources are,” host Nicolle Wallace predicted.

“I think all of us believe it did not come from the tight-lipped special counsel’s office, so I was speculating earlier with Savannah Guthrie on The Today Show that perhaps Dohn Dowd could be the source of this,” Bash noted. “At 10:16 a.m. I got a very stern e-mail from John Dowd, he said ‘I was not the source, I was not the leak, please correct the record on national television.’ So I’m just putting it out there that John Dowd is saying emphatically on-the-record that he was not the source of this material.”

“I can one-up you,” Wallace replied. “Before I’d even gone on television, two people called me to tell me that Rudy [Giuliani] wasn’t Mike Schmidt’s source either.”

Trump’s attacks on Biden’s mental fitness just draw attention to his own problems: Joy Reid panel

Published

on

MSNBC host Joy Reid gave some helpful advice to President Donald Trump and his children, who frequently attack former Vice President Joe Biden for his mental health: It makes you look worse.

Speaking to her closing Wednesday panel with Jason Johnson and Howard Fineman, Reid showed a super-cut of Trump's knack for getting words wrong, not knowing how to pronounce simple things, slurring his words, stumbling down the stairs, not knowing where to go, dragging his feet and more.

"Well, you know, my pretext for all my students this fall will be: person, woman, man, camera, tv, and if they can do that, I know they're at least as smart as the president," joked Johnson. "Here's the thing. Joe Biden demonstrated that he literally can ride a bike and do something else at the same time. Like, I have always thought the argument that Joe Biden has lost a step or has some sort of mental deficiency was a complete lie. It's Republicans just projecting. What's important to remember is that no matter how much they spout this nonsense, every single time Donald Trump opens his mouth, he looks worse. There is nothing Joe Biden can say that is more foolish or incoherent than Donald Trump in the middle of a substantive interview."

Congresswoman criticizes Republican press guy for claim Black folks don’t care about Kamala Harris: Does he know any?

Published

on

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.

"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
