The Republican Party has had their fill of Morning Joe Scarborough. For months now, the morning MSNBC show has spent the vast bulk of its three hours in endless attacks on President Trump and anyone connected to his administration. Endless discussion of unsourced reports alleging collusion with Russia, and blowing out of all proportion any minor misstep by the president or anyone even remotely associated with him.
The Republican National Committee is offering a blistering take on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” calling it “the worst case of Trump Derangement Syndrome” in a press release on Wednesday.
The attack was all the more notable given that the morning show, while airing on a liberal network, is helmed by former GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough. (The Hill)
A NOTE FROM THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE
If there is a leader of the pack for the worst case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, look no further than MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
Once a respected forum for intelligent discourse, the program has turned into 3 hours of far-left hysteria, filled with more faux scandal and innuendo than a bad episode of Gossip Girl.
According to a rough review of this morning’s program, the crew spent the majority of the show discussing misspelled tweets, White House staffing plans, uncorroborated Russia stories, and the supposed horror of President Trump giving his cell phone number out.
Little to no time was spent discussing how multiple former intelligence heads and members of the left have now indicated there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, how illegal leaks are threatening national security, or the fact that backchannel communications are normal practice. And, if you were tuning in to get a substantive update on health care or tax reform negotiations, good luck.
To top it off, Senator Franken joined the program and didn’t receive a single question on the biggest issue in front of him today, the fact that he is holding an event with Kathy Griffin in July and refuses to cancel it. You’d have to turn to another network to hear that question asked.
Just trying to keep them honest…
