MSNBC’s Morning Joe mocks Sean Spicer for passing Trump’s ‘loyalty test’ — and flushing his reputation

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough mocked Sean Spicer and others who allowed President Donald Trump to destroy their reputations.

The former White House press secretary pranced around in neon green ruffles on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” as part of a bid to rehabilitate his image after serving Trump, and the “Morning Joe” host ripped Spicer and other former officials who gave their loyalty in exchange for nothing.

“It’s really unbelievable,” Scarborough said. “This is what autocrats do. He’s not an autocrat, of course, he’s a would-be autocrat, if he lived in a country that was allowed to be one.”

“These are loyalty tests,” he added, “and despite the fact that Republicans have been sycophants and allowed this guy to breach constitutional norms, to breach political norms, to say the worst things about P.O.W. war heroes, to say the worst things about other American heroes, to attack everybody left and right, they’ve remained mute while he called the Fed chair enemy of the United States, enemy of the people, calls the press an enemy of the people. His Greenland debacle where he canceled a meeting with the NATO ally.”

Co-host Mika Brzezinski cut him off, saying they didn’t have enough time on the show to list all of Trump’s abuses.

“We don’t have enough time,” Scarborough concluded, “and yet the Republicans remain silent. But isn’t this the way autocrats behave? They’re loyalty tests, and then you never, ever, ever are sufficiently loyal enough, and you find yourself wearing green ruffles on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ a year later.”

“No, I’m serious,” he added. “I’m serious, go down the list of people who have done what Donald Trump has ordered them to do, they’re all out and they’re all lesser people because of the humiliation he put them through.”

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.

The faith of Fox News: How the network’s propaganda warps viewers’ sense of reality

Published

on

A longtime sticking point among Fox News employees is their insistent differentiation between its news division, where employees practice actual journalism, and its opinion division, where employees practice actual nativism, spew misinformation, and have been actively campaigning for Donald Trump’s re-election since 2016.  Inside the organization, they claim to believe that the news side is separate from the opinion side, and insist that the audience can tell the difference.

News anchor Shepard Smith once characterized comparing the two as “apples and teaspoons.”

2020 Election

Maddow warns Russia is interfering in the 2020 election in ‘exactly the same way’ as they did in 2016

Published

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday warned that Russia and the Republicans are running the "exact same play" against Democrats in 2020 -- and this time will be aided by the United States Justice Department.

"And they are playing it again already for the next election. And some of it is happening just like it did in 2016. And some of it is worse and I think it’s going to be more powerful than it was in 2016. In part because this is a second draft for these guys, right? They ran this play in 2016. They worked out some of the kinks," she explained. "Now they’ll do it again with the benefit of knowing what worked for them and what didn’t work the first time around. It’s a second draft. It’s going to be better and more polished."
