Morning Joe mocks White House for being scared to let Mueller grill Trump: ‘His lawyers think he’s a moron’

Published

A “Morning Joe” panel on Thursday mocked the Trump White House for being reluctant to let President Donald Trump sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller.

During the panel, co-host Joe Scarborough tried to goad Trump into talking with Mueller by insisting that it would be the best way for the president to prove his innocence.

“It seems to me, and I’m being dead serious here, if Donald Trump thinks that he can sit at a table with Robert Mueller and not get wiped out, he would be doing himself, his White House, this country a great favor, if he really is innocent, to sit down,” Scarborough said. “Get it over with, see that that’s in the rearview mirror, and then go ahead and let Mueller investigate what Vladimir Putin did in 2016.”

Co-host Mika Brzezinski pointed out that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s public stance against letting Trump sit down with Mueller shows that his legal team seems to lack confidence in his ability to answer basic questions without perjuring himself.

“Look at the reactions to the people around him… many would deduce his lawyers think he’s a moron,” she said. “His tweets indicate that he’s very afraid.”

In a press conference Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, President Donald Trump openly reminded that he only takes questions from people on his side.

"Would you like to pick somebody?" Trump asked Erdo?an after taking a question from the far-right OANN. "A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters. There aren’t too many of them around."

Trump has increasingly refused to take questions from reporters who ask him actual questions that he both knows the answer to and will make him look good.

The White House hasn't hosted a "daily press briefing" for 247 days and not at all under the new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham. She has, however, had time to appear on Fox News multiple times to speak for the White House.

Fox legal analyst: Today was a good day for anyone who wants to shorten the Trump presidency

Published

As the first public hearings in the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump wrapped up this Wednesday, former assistant US attorney and Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy said that he originally expected Republicans' "best pitch" to be that the Democrats' impeachment inquiry hasn't demonstrated anything impeachable.

"Instead what they've tried to do is go at this by saying, 'Nothing bad happened, it was perfect,'" McCarthy said, adding that the latter tactic will open them up to an "itemization of a number of irregularities that happened and a lot of very admirable and articulate government witnesses getting on the witness stand to say, 'This shouldn't have happened, that shouldn't have happened, this is a departure from American interests, a departure from American norms.'"

George Conway blows apart Republicans’ ‘illogical and incoherent’ defense’ of Trump

Published

Republican Washington lawyer George Conway found the GOP's attempts to defend President Donald Trump to be "illogical and incoherent."

The spouse of Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to the president, explained that the witnesses were clearly non-partisan professionals only willing to talk about the facts.

"And the facts are quite damning. And the defenses that were put up by the Republicans were fundamentally illogical and incoherent," Conway told MSNBC. "I mean, one defense was, 'Hey, they actually got the money. The Ukrainians got the money and Zelensky didn’t make a statement. But the fact of the matter is, it was the ask that was illegal."
