MSNBC’s Morning Joe hammers Trump for ‘weird’ Bible stunt

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough blasted President Donald Trump for ordering the gassing of peaceful protesters to get a photograph of himself awkwardly holding a Bible at a church damaged by vandals.

The “Morning Joe” shamed Republicans for “lying” about the brutal dispersal of protesters against police violence, and he accused the president of starting a riot.

“Americans aren’t buying it,” Scarborough said. “Donald Trump is not playing three-dimensional chess, he’s eating the chess pieces and it’s not going well.”

“So many people have been saying law and order would work for Donald Trump, it’s going to be just like 1968,” he added. “Here’s the problem: Donald Trump is the incumbent. This is all happening on Donald Trump’s watch. When he the first night started talking about shooting people, president of the United States is calling protesters thugs, it’s — it’s ginning things up.”

The president has faced widespread criticism for inflaming tensions during the nationwide protests, and poll numbers show Americans aren’t impressed.

“Even the pope’s telling him to cut it out.” Scarborough said. “Republicans are telling him, some Republicans, to cut it out, this is not working, and the biggest surprise to me is, I know that they’re stupid. A lot of these people around the president are stupid, that’s the only reason they’re there, because they will do whatever he tells them to do. What I didn’t realize is that some of them are so stupid that they were actually congratulating themselves after Donald Trump started a riot in the President’s Park, in Lafayette Park, so he could have a photo-op and awkwardly, weirdly, bizarrely hold a Bible like nobody has ever held a Bible before, like in a political event. It’s just bizarre, holding it upside-down at one point.”

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

on

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis finally caved in to pressure to release the actual numbers of coronavirus cases in the state's hospitals.

"The data, which for the first time breaks down the number of people in the hospital with coronavirus, was promised by the state two weeks ago," the report explained.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
