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

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.”

Marco Rubio torn to pieces for whining about media only reporting on ‘bad’ COVID pandemic news

Published

More than 2,000 Americans died from the novel coronavirus on Tuesday and hospitalizations resulting from the disease surged to a record high of 88,000.

Despite this grim news, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) complained on Wednesday that the news media is only covering the negative aspects of a pandemic that so far has killed 260,000 Americans in just nine months.

"On Covid, media emphasized bad news even when we had positive developments and did more Trump/hydroxychloroquine stories than all vaccine stories combined," he wrote. "Part of a broader pattern of characterizing everything as bad news Republicans are to be blamed for."

Trump to travel ‘unannounced’ to fake ‘hearing’ on election fraud — after aides failed to talk him out of it: reports

Published

President Donald Trump is planning to make a surprise visit to a fake legislative "hearing" in Pennsylvania, CNN and The New York Times reported Tuesday night.

"Trump is expected to join [Rudy] Giuliani in Gettysburg, PA tomorrow where GOP state lawmakers are holding a 'hearing' on allegations of fraud in the 2020 election, two sources familiar with the plans tell me. Not on his schedule, but being planned as an unannounced movement," CNN's Jeremy Diamond reported Thursday.

Maggie Haberman of The New York Times confirmed the report.

Trump ‘re-traumatizing’ himself with doomed legal fight: ‘He loses each state now once, twice, three times’

Published

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski said President Donald Trump was traumatizing himself by fighting his election loss, because each challenge brings a new loss.

The president continues to challenge his loss to Joe Biden in several key states, but the "Morning Joe" co-host said he's just hurting himself psychologically by continuing this battle that's doomed to failure.

"When you look at these states, and every day we deliver the news about recounts or how close different state official, county officials are to certifying the vote, somebody close to Trump, if they knew him, if they understood him, if they could talk to him, they would explain to him he's re-traumatizing himself every time he loses again," Brzezinski said. "He loses each state now once, twice, three times, and all that does is churn him up and has him tweeting terrible things, trying to think of how he can make this pain stop."
