‘Going back to the scene of the crime’: Morning Joe shames Amy Coney Barrett for another White House event

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough shamed Amy Coney Barrett for returning to the White House to be sworn in as the ninth U.S. Supreme Court justice.

President Donald Trump hosted a nighttime ceremony to swear in Barrett, eight days before the election and over strenuous Democratic objection, in a ceremony eerily similar to the Sept. 26 nomination event blamed for infecting Trump and others with the coronavirus.

“After the White House superspreader event, which, of course, they had another one last night,” Scarborough said. “You have to wonder, Amy Coney Barrett, really? You’re going to go back to the scene of the crime, where the United States government was actually put at risk by your first event?”

“Could you not just say, ‘Thank you, but no thank you, Mr. President?” he continued. “‘I’m going to be quietly sworn in by Chief Justice [John] Roberts, it will be safer that way.’ Really? I don’t — not only do I not understand that, most Americans look at that picture and say, what the hell is going on?”

“These are people who are running around acting as if 225,000 dead Americans is a joke,” Scarborough added.

Trump abruptly ends news conference after 1 minute as reporters grill him on conceding

Published

President Donald Trump took one minute out of his day on Thursday to hold a press conference in which he took credit for gains in the stock market, which came after President-elect Joe Biden's transition was allowed to formally begin.

At his press conference which lasted almost exactly one minute, Trump credited his administration for after the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded above 30,000 for the first time.

"The stock market, it's just broken 30,000," the president said. "Never broken that number. That's a sacred number. Nobody thought they would ever see it. That's the ninth time since the beginning of 2020 and it's the 48th time that we have broken records in -- during the Trump administration."

Paul Krugman says Trump’s final days in office are like a Star Wars sequel: ‘The Loser Strikes Back’

Published

Writing in the New York Times this Tuesday, columnist Paul Krugman says that while we all knew that President Trump would react badly to losing the 2020 election,  his temper tantrum and the "willingness of almost the entire Republican Party to indulge him have surpassed even pessimists’ expectations."

According to Krugman, Trump's crusade to wreck America on his way out is like a Star Wars sequel, titled: "The Loser Strikes Back."

Krugman writes that Trump administration officials are already trying to sabotage the economy, "setting the stage for a possible financial crisis on Joe Biden’s watch."

In a 60-second press conference Tuesday, Trump called it a "sacred number" and bragged about breaking the record, taking credit for it.

It's an interesting turn, however, since the president spent months warning that if President-elect Joe Biden won the stock market would crash.

"Joe Biden and the radical, socialist Democrats would immediately collapse the economy," Trump said in a Labor Day address Sept. 7. "If they got in, they would collapse it. You’ll have a crash the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Your stocks, your 401(k)s — remember, it’s the people that own these massive, listed companies. A lot of people: rich people and not so rich people and middle-income people. And those stocks will crash like you’ve never seen before."
