Morning Joe All Episodes Talk

I don't understand why Mika can't dress professionally like the other anchors on morning news. I don't go for the sleeveless dresses in freezing weather, but there must be a  happy medium somewhere between Cougar in 4 inch heels and skin tight skirts and Mom driving the kids to school in her pajamas. 

If anyone's interested or hasn't seen it already I posted the Montreal Cognitive Test in Small Cup of Joe thread.   Get your pencils out Stable Geniuses!!

Joe is ranting about the Doctor that gave Trump his medical exam!. Joe should challenge him to a Duel!. No one knows medecine like joe!

Mika said that Obama worked out every day! He was healthier than Trump.

Joe is ignorant about the cognitive tests. They are used every day.

I am especially thankful for your recaps today, Oakville. I woke up at 6:00 and watched the first few bits of the show, but I was still tired and went back to sleep. I *thought* I remembered Robert Costa's feed being off, but then I wondered if I just imagined it. What I do recall is being rather depressed at all the early discussions.

But here's a warning about not going back to sleep while MJ is on. I had a dream that both Robert Costa and Heidi P. showed up at the table. They both looked really short and really young. Robert Costa was wearing a football jersey in support of his favorite team. Heidi P. was also wearing a jersey but it has a feminist slogan on it. She had her hair in long braids.

I have no idea what any of it means. But it seems to be a cautionary tale . . .

I'm fairly certain that Heidi Przybyla was never young.  I think I read somewhere that she has been 31 years old for 44 years.  She was born sitting ramrod straight, soberly quoting the Ford Administrations' formal statements on the key economic indicators pointing to an impending gas crisis and strife in the Middle East.
She's from Alexandria, which explains a lot.  I bet her parents were two brainiacs from aristocratic money... guessing one was a professor and the other career State Department.  That explains her sober, articulate, sharp mind and her perfect posture.
Heidi Przybyla has NEVER worn a jersey.  That's how you know it was a dream.

Yeah but last week Heidi wore a mod 1960's Emilio Pucci knockoff dress.  Where did that "Breakout look" come from?

 

Oh, oh Jordan Baker I just figured out why Heidi had 2 braids in your dream.  It's from Heidi--the Book/ movie by Joanna Spyri (spell?)  Heidi was a little German girl in the Alps!  Was one of my favs as a child.

I just watched a focus group answer questions about Trump.  They were evangelicals.  Also, they were loathsome, disgusting sub-humans.  The definition of lowest common denominator.  Was this the group the NYTimes interviewed?  Was the journalist who wrote the article on MJ?  What's his/her name?

I saw that too.

Why wasn't "do you approve of trump paying a porn star $130,00 in hush money?" asked.

This was brought up on MJ this morning. It's non story because there's so much shit to cover it doesn't matter to his base anyway.

I watched until 8 am when I decided I could not stand an encore of Scarborough reading aloud the rapture of Jason Peck of Holtsville, NY.   

I don't believe the NYT piece was an article per se.   It looked like a propaganda sheet of testimonials from satisfied Trump customers.   No one on set from the NYT to support it.

I wonder how many people canceled their Times subscriptions today.   They lost my $180/yr.

I listened to Wednesday and Thursday via the podcast, and thought it had malfunctioned -- thanks for explaining the Costa feed being lost.  And yes, they (and others) seem to think a cognitive test is a psychological fitness test; good for us to know that Trump can tell the difference between a giraffe and a rhino, but his lack of knowledge and lack of even temperament were not measured by a cognitive test!

Who knew we would be on the MJ board throwing out Yiddish words to emphasize the mishigas that this show is every morning?

I'm kicking myself now. I should be fluent. My mom and Bubbie spoke Yiddish when they didn't want us kids to know what they were saying.

Commence kibbitzing!

It was annoying the way they handled the Costa malfunction. It was like Mika was trying to pretend it didn't happen and she cut Joe off when he tried to acknowledge it.

Joe listed all of Mika's animals then said he was fine with them all but the pig. It was actually a funny segment. 

Joe's comments about numbing people to the reality of Trump seem right.  What is Trump hiding that he is worried Putin will reveal?

Mika has a micro-pig, how cute. Only not. There's no such thing; it's a myth. Little Kasie (my God, how insulting is that) will grow to be several hundred pounds, and will end up in some overburdened sanctuary because Airhead's not prepared to take care of such a huge animal.

Friday Recap. Joe is in the bunker. Mika is on set . There are still audio problems. Joe is shouting from the bunker at Sam Stein who is late with muffled sound. Mika is demanding that Sam bring a $50 Starbucks card to the set. His mike is the wrong side of the lapel.

Mika is dressed in a black villain top from Season 2 of Star Trek. Donnie Sexy man is on the set with a tan.

Susan Fereccio. Kasie! gets another lightning intro. She winced. Mika said it never gets old! yes it does.

 

Brady bunch screens & they just set Stein's box to red.

Opening clip of Trump blaming Obama for the shutdown in 2013. No one cares who the Congress is.

Joe said the GOP is to blame because they run everything. Joe forgot that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to approve the spending bill.

Joe blamed the GOP for being on the wrong side of an 90-10 issue. 87% support DACA.

90% support background checks.

Joe blasted the GOP.

Donnie said the Democrats ned chutzpaw & testosterno to fight Trump.

Trump has balls so he won the election.

Joe said Thatcher had balls & wiped out the Labor party.

The House voted to keep the govt running.

kasie said that Trump Shithole meeting derailed the talks with the Democrats.

The show is now coming to a stop over a technician glitch.

Mika is being a preachy teacher.

Mika uses her phone to play audio of her little pig squealing while Joe is revealing from the bunker that he tolerates all of her animals except the pig. The pig's name is Casey (that is the pronunciation but Mika will not divulge the spelling). Close-up of Kasie ! who appears bewildered. Mika assures her that the spelling is not KC/Kasie ! and promises to reveal the spelling to the panel during a break. Evidently it will remain a tease for the viewers.

The Democrats don't have an opposition leader.

Stein is thinking that the Mar A largo fundraiser for Trump is bad optics if the government is shutdown.

Pelosi is now talking about doggie do with a cherry on top.

Is the show now a parody of Green Acres? 3 dogs, 2 bunnies... rabbits.

Why is the pig named Kasie? Joe is anti pig!

Mika is not happy with the porn star getting 130K for sex with Trump.

More chaos on the set with the technicians turning Sam Stein's voice into a chipmunk.

Joe made sense with Trump dumbing down the discourse with 2000 lies and tweets. No one knows what the Russians have on Trump since 2015. ? Money laundering?

Shady Business Deals?

It would be good if the media tried to analyze this rather than wasting time with Trump's latest dumb tweets.

Mika is not blaming the technician. The sound is bad today. i wonder if my new tv is acting up?

I like the 17 hour shutdown clock. Why aren't they taking this issue seriously?

Joe is now impersonating Dr Z! Wow! No Bulging eyes Mika!

The protracted joke about Sam and the technical crew went on about 10 minutes too long.   And Mika's over-the-top laughter did nothing to dispel suspicions that these people do drugs before the show every morning.

Jim Jordan.   What a piece of work.   I have seen marlins landed more easily than getting Jordan to say whether he supported allowing Dreamers to stay.   He repeated the talking point that Democrats want to hurt the military for the sake of people who came here illegally.

I am strongly against illegal immigration and I *hate* the euphemism "Dreamers" but even I wouldn't define kids brought here by their parents as "coming here illegally."   If the parents stole a car and threw the kids in the back seat, the children would not be guilty of stealing that car.  By the same principle, the children are not guilty of breaking immigration or border security laws.

It must be hard for her.   Every day she has to scratch and claw for relevance, and usually without success.   The men dominate the discussion and all the female guests are far more intelligent than her.  I think this explains why more and more Mika sabotages the discussion with noisy shit from her phone, bringing the show to a full stop.

You are right.  The whole"Sam Stein needs to buy tech a Starbucks apology card" was labored over for about 15 minutes over about an hour and a half.  What's that phrase about Nero (?) fiddling while Rome burns??

Good point about MIKA! They should put Kasie & Heidi in the studio & let Mika go into the abandoned library. Can you even read the books in the library? It looks like a fake backdrop.

Agree. And why should Sam get blamed for being late when it was a technical issue? TBS he could have said "technical issue" instead of "technician".  

Please MSNBC, I am begging you. Stop having Jim Jordan (R-Nuttsylvania) on your network. He is just God awful and I'm convinced he's some kind of psychotic robot.  Not a single person on this network has been able to stop him from repeating the same line over and over and over, whether it's about the Russia investigation, immigration, taxes, etc.  Other than Joy Reid, because she would have shut his shit down so fast he wouldn't have known what hit him. She would have said "that's it, thanks if you aren't going to answer I don't have time for this".

BOOM

Do Joe and Mika refer to all elected officials by their first name?  They called Bernie Sanders "Bernie."  I feel like they use the title when speaking to other officials.  Maybe not.  I don't think they called that batshit, wingnut, fascist, retrograde idiot Jim Jordan "Jim."  He and is ilk are alarming.  I have a physical reaction to them.. it's like fear.  How do you reason with a person with NO hold on reality?  You can't, and that's dangerous.
I also have a physical reaction to Sanders, best described as dismissive amusement.  The Democrats really really have to get their shit in line.  Fucking millennials.

Oh...I agree with the Jim Jordan shade ... times 10.  Cannot stand him.  Why is he always in shirt and tie?  Never a Jacket?  And is it me or does he have just about the worst hair of any sitting congressman?  Worst.  It would appear to be really really thin.  So much so that it is off-putting.  I am not shaming thin-haired men.  Maybe it is just that it is light-colored and thin.  But he offends me in so many ways.  To paraphrase Dean Wormer from Animal House.  Bad hair, pasty, obnoxious and terrifying is no way to go through life, Jim.  I think that is why I can't stand the young stud character on the new show 911.  He is pasty and thus reminds me of Jordan.

I think I read somewhere that he used to be a wrestling coach.  Wish some high-school whose kids are from tea-party leaning homes would make him an offer he can't refuse.  If you don't have any respect for your government and it's institutions..you shouldn't be interested in representing it.  Or elected to represent it.  What is wrong with the people in his state?  Yes, I know. D Students.

It was just the image that came to mind as Willie Geist struggled with him, alternately reeling in, giving him some slack, then reeling in again.   Then Daddy Scarborough takes the pole, "let me try it, son ..."

Is it a prerequisite of the Freedom Caucus that you have an alliterative, three-syllable name that does not end in a vowel?  Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows ... 

I don't know if anyone caught it, but in one of his answers to Willie, Jordan previewed the Republicans' latest shitbomb to throw at the Russia investigation.  Willie asked him what Paul Ryan gave the Freedom Caucus to convince them to change their vote.  Jordan's reply was something like, "He's giving us a vote to let the public know what the FBI is doing."

He was referring to a "top secret" report created by Trump tool Devin Nunes supposedly revealing a conspiracy between the Justice Department and the FBI "at the highest levels" to undermine the Trump presidency.
