MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski abruptly cut off a clip of Donald Trump discussing testing and wearing masks during the coronavirus pandemic, calling his words nothing more than lies, before she went off on a frank rant calling the president “stupid and pathetic” before adding he is responsible for countless U.S. deaths.
Not long after the clip began running, the host cut in, saying in disgust, “Just get out of this. I mean, this is the president who just lied four times in a row and I just cut it short because we don’t need to hear him lying.”
Then she went off.
“He says Joe Biden has been wrong every step of the way,” she began. “Was he wrong in January when he penned an opinion piece for USA Today warning of a coming pandemic? Warning that many lives would be lost if the president doesn’t get with his CDC and build teams around this to combat a virus? Was he wrong or were you wrong when you went to the CDC spewing your germs all over the place saying if you want a test, you can test a test, when no one could get a test? Or maybe were you wrong when you said it would go away miraculously? Maybe, were you wrong, when you said it was one person coming from China? Maybe, were you wrong when you said perhaps you don’t want to use the Defense Production Act to mobilize a nationalized response to testing and contact tracing?”
Blaming the president for slowing down COVID-19 testing and saying it was “utter stupidity,” she added, “Talk about ditzy, talk about a ditzy, stupid, botched response to a pandemic that is killing tens of thousands of people, over 160,000 right now — this is on you. Many of those deaths, Mr. President, are on you and your terrible response to this virus. You can’t even show leadership on masks, and now, you’re politicizing your lies against Joe Biden, who’s saying everyone should wear masks because it could reduce the numbers of transmissions of the coronavirus, which is what Dr. Fauci is saying, which is what all the doctors are saying and former CDC directors are saying.”
“People who have degrees and decades of knowledge in studying pandemics and infectious diseases and yet you go out there and just blow off stupid ideas about injecting Clorox into your body and taking hydroxychloroquine when it isn’t safe enough, saying you took it? ” she continued. “It’s idiotic. And it’s killing people — and you get up there and talk about Joe Biden being wrong?”
‘He told us to use his words against him’: Early AM protest outside Lindsey Graham’s home over RBG replacement
"In the spirit of RBG, we will not allow a double standard in how our Congress deals with late-term Supreme Court appointments."
Taking Sen. Lindsey Graham up on his 2016 advice to use his words opposing the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland against him should a Supreme Court seat open in the final year of a Republican president's first term, a group of demonstrators gathered outside of the South Carolina Republican's Washington, D.C. residence early Monday morning demanding that he oppose the filling of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat until after the November election.
Lindsey Graham ‘is in danger of an upset’ loss: top elections forecaster
Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R-SC) re-election campaign looks increasingly in peril, according to one of America's top elections forecasters.
The latest update from the University of Virginia's Center for Politics claims that Graham today "is in greater danger of an upset" than he was just weeks ago, which has led to a ratings change in Graham's race against Democratic rival Jamie Harrison from "likely R" to "leans R."
Among other things, the Center for Politics points to Harrison's gaudy fundraising numbers as too big to ignore.
Trump openly admits he’s fast-tracking SCOTUS nominee to rule on ‘fake ballots’ during contested election
President Donald Trump is openly admitting he's wasting no time, fast-tracking the replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to help him during a contested election.
Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Trump on Monday said because of "fake ballots," he does not want a 4-4 Supreme Court ruling on the election, should there be one. There is zero evidence of fake ballots.
Trump suggests though he wants a confirmation vote before the elections, citing election disputes and his baseless claim of “fake ballots” being filled out. We don’t want a 4-4 tie at the court, he said
