MSNBC’s Mika shames Lindsey Graham for ruining his reputation to become a Trump flunky: ‘As bad as Rudy’

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked President Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for their reactions to the first Democratic presidential debate.

The president insisted he wouldn’t watch Wednesday’s debate, but later declared it “BORING!” and criticized MSNBC for a technical issue during the broadcast.

“As usual, the president could not help himself from watching,” Brzezinski said. “This is like his ‘Morning Joe’ thing — he can’t help himself.”

The “Morning Joe” co-hosts then turned their attention to Graham, who has turned from a strong Trump critic during the 2016 GOP primaries to joking about Trump serving an unconstitutional third term.

“Wow, that guy,” Brzezinski said. “Lindsey, save yourself. Oh, my god.”

The co-hosts agreed Graham was burning his reputation faster than former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

“A man who said that Donald Trump was unfit to be president of the United States and would destroy the Republican Party if they nominated him,” Scarborough said, “they would deserve to be destroyed.”

“As bad as Rudy,” Brzezinski said.

The dark British comedy -- which has grown into a phenomenon on both sides of the Atlantic after being acquired by Amazon -- also scooped the awards for best comedy writing and directing at television's answer to the Oscars.

"It's just really wonderful to know and reassuring that a dirty, pervy, angry, messed-up woman can make it to the Emmys," said Waller-Bridge, referring to her character.

‘There is no defense for the president to sacrifice national security’: Ex-White House counsel on Ukraine-gate

Published

on

President Barack Obama's White House counsel, Bob Bauer, explained during a Sunday MSNBC appearance that one of the worst things President Donald Trump has done in Ukraine-gate is to put American national security in jeopardy.

"Some would like to argue the law didn’t discuss bribery. Let me go beyond that," Bauer began. "There’s not a commentator on the facts that, for example, Carol laid out, and there are more facts to be found out. I think that's the responsibility of the Congress. There's not a scholar or commentator in the know that would believe for a minute it’s not an impeach offense for the president of the United States to sacrifice national security interest of the American people to his political personal gain. I mean, there's not a question about that."

Michelle Williams just gave the perfect case to Hollywood for trusting women

Published

Actress Michelle Williams won the best actress Emmy for her role in the FX limited series Fosse/Verdon and in her acceptance speech, she made the perfect case for treating women like people in Hollywood.

"I see this as an acknowledgment of what is possible when a woman is trusted to discern her own needs, feels safe enough to voice them, and respected enough to be heard," she told the audience. "When I ask for more dance classes, I heard yes. More voice lessons, yes. A different, wig, fake teeth not made out of rubber, yes. All these things require effort and cost more money, but my bosses never presumed to know better than I did about what I needed in order to do my job and honor Gwen Verdon."
