Morning Joe drops a Rust Belt bomb on Trump now that impeachment is a reality

Published

on

“Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski kicked off Friday morning with bad news for Donald Trump about recent polling in the battleground Rust Belt states showing his re-election prospects crumbling, even if he does survive impeachment.

“You go through new Morning Consult Trump approval ratings, and it really shows how unpopular he is,” host Scarborough began. “And in some of these states they show how impeachment is really either keeping him from gaining momentum with all the money he’s wasting and it’s not moving anything.”

“Ohio, he’s minus five,” he explained. “Pennsylvania, minus seven, underwater. Iowa underwater, minus 13. Minnesota, underwater, minus 13. And the biggest two for last: Wisconsin, minus 14 and Michigan minus 14.”

“That would explain his mood,” co-host Brzezinski offered.

“It explains his mood, first of all” Scarborough concurred. “But secondly, all of these clowns that have been going around saying that impeachment’s backfiring and this is hurting. No — he can gain no momentum. He’s getting absolutely slaughtered in these state polls and, again, everybody always says, you know, don’t look at the national polls, the national polls don’t matter; Trump can win or lose by four or five percentage points in the popular vote but he’ll still win the states. We’re less than a year out from the general election, he’s underwater by double digits in Iowa, in Wisconsin, and in Michigan. and doing really badly in other states.”

The host also noted that the president is floundering in normally reliable states such as Georgia, North Carolina and Arizona.

Sheriff Billy Woods, of central Florida's Marion County, emailed deputies Tuesday to tell them of the new mask prohibition, according to local paper the Ocala Star Banner, citing the message.

"My order will stand as is when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office – masks will not be worn," the email read.

The sheriff allowed for certain exceptions, including for officers who work in prisons, schools, hospitals or with people suspected of being infected with the virus.

"Multiple agencies are battling a brush fire near the Lake Hughes area in the Angeles National Forest," the department said in a tweet.

‘Trump should know how to be in public with a woman who publicly humiliated him’: Trevor Noah jokes

Published

"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah couldn't help but notice President Donald Trump's confusion during the Q&A of his daily coronavirus press briefing. Trump was asked about Vice President Joe Biden's pick as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. In his attacks on Harris, Trump seemed to be spending more time defending Biden than he did attacking him.

Trump claimed the reason he was surprised Biden picked Harris is that she was "very very nasty to Joe Biden," he said she was "probably nastier even than Pocahontas," his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). "She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden."
