WATCH: Morning Joe pummels Bill Barr for letting Epstein commit suicide on his watch

Published

on

“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough ripped into both Attorney General Bill Barr and Donald Trump on Monday morning for not taking extraordinary measures to make sure that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself while being held in federal custody of human trafficking charges.

Addressing the multiple failures at the Metropolitan Correctional Center where Epstein was being held, the MSNBC host said the blame for not preventing the wealth manager’s suicide goes right to the top.

“If you’re the attorney general of the United States and they’re holding the most important prisoner in the world as far as testimony goes, you’re going to say, keep your eyes on him 24/7,” Scarborough ranted. “It’s pretty interesting that [9/11 attack architect] Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is still alive today. The United States government managed to keep Khalid Sheikh Mohammed alive. They managed to keep alive terrorists or terror suspects that they needed to testify or they needed information for the September 11th attacks alive.”

With panelist Mike Barnicle in agreement, Scarborough continued.

“That wasn’t that difficult and here, again, you’re talking about a man who had information on some of the most powerful people in this country over the past quarter-century and you can’t keep him alive?” he complained. “I mean, the attorney general should have bent over backwards given Donald Trump’s own past with Jeffrey Epstein, his own relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.”

“If the president had nothing to do worry about, then the president should have bent over backwards and the attorney general should have done the same to make sure this man stayed alive,” he concluded.

Trump says governors are ‘very happy’ with the job he’s doing — even though they’re begging him for more supplies

Published

on

At the latest coronavirus task force press briefing on Monday, President Donald Trump boasted that "every one" of the state governors in America are "very happy" with the job he is doing to help them combat coronavirus.

His claim is at odds with numerous governors who have complained that the federal government is not doing enough to coordinate the delivery of medical equipment and forcing them into bidding wars with other states.

Trump even tried to add later in the speech that Gov. J. B. Pritzker (D-IL) was "a happy man" even though "he may not be happy when he talks to the press."

There’s a horrifying history of leaders saying there’s a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’

Published

on

President Donald Trump rang out in an all-caps tweet Monday morning "LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!" It was a comment he echoed from his Sunday press conference saying that the U.S. is in the home stretch of the coronavirus crisis. He went on to say that he anticipated the country reopening in a few weeks.

The quote was one that Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty noted was one that many other leaders have used at frightening times.

"It is difficult to imagine a poorer, more chilling choice of words," she wrote. "Or one that more illuminates, if inadvertently, the consequences of the mixed-messages that Trump continues to send."
