MSNBC’s Morning Joe fires back at Trump’s rage tweets against him: ‘Morning Psycho responds to loyal viewer’

Published

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough came out of a segment on the importance of getting enough sleep by reading aloud some of President Donald Trump’s early morning rage tweets against him.

The president attacked the “Morning Joe” host by name early Tuesday as part of an airing of his grievances against specific members of the media, and Scarborough laughed out loud at the attacks.

“Did he tweet and say I’m dumb and sick, too?” Scarborough said. “That makes me sad, Donald. I’ve been so intimidated by this, I’m not going to talk about how the Donald’s poll numbers just keep collapsing. They’re at an all-time low. It makes me very sad. So I’m a psycho, I’m dumb and sick.”

Scarborough returned from a commercial break with a chyron mocking the president: “Morning Psycho responds to loyal viewer,” and co-host Willie Geist added another dose of ridicule.

“It’s viewers like you, Mr. President, who make it possible,” Geist said. “We have great team that comes in and works all night, works around the clock to get the show ready. I do like how the president goes all caps — it’s like a proper noun, angry, dumb, sick with capitalized letters. It’s very interesting he used that as an honorific or some kind of title for you, Joe.”

on

This has always been confounding, as the official summary readout of the famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump clearly conditioning military aid and U.S. support on Zelensky giving a public boost to Trump's conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders. The witnesses so far have simply affirmed what the written record demonstrates amply.

Published

on

The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee was visibly frustrated after once again getting shut down while attempting a parliamentary maneuver.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been attempting to ignore the rules governing the impeachment inquiry so that he can yield Republicans' time to fellow members of Congress, instead of just the professional GOP counsel.

Nunes has attempted to yield time to Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who has been raising re-election funds off of her outbursts in the hearings.

Once again, Nunes attempted to yield his time to a fellow Republican and once again Nunes was told that is against the rules.
