Joe Scarborough hangs up on Donald Trump live on air

Last edited Thu Feb 22, 2024, 05:50 PM - Edit history (1)





Edit Note:
I checked the YouTube on this, and it is indeed dated 12/089/2015. Why it got re-posted today on YouTube, I have no clue.

My bad if this is so.

However, it is still a good reminder on how the MSM should behave in dealing with Trump from now on. He is vulnerable now.

him get elected. IIRC it was in his second campaign when they turned against him after he talked about Mika getting plastic surgery and he face was bleeding...and other crazy shit. His insanity had started to be move evident by then.

https://people.com/politics/mika-brzezinski-president-trump-face-lift-tweet-doctor/

Published on June 30, 2017 05:03PM EDT



Mika Brzezinski is setting the record straight about President Trump‘s tweet regarding her alleged face-lift — which wasn’t a face-lift at all.

In a candid new interview with Vanity Fair published on Friday, the Morning Joe co-host reveals that she got a procedure to tighten the skin under her neck — and explains why the president knew about it.

Brzezinski says she started laughing when her coworker Willie Geist first showed her Trump’s widely derided tweets, in which he claimed she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when she and her fiancé and co-host Joe Scarborough visited the Trumps at Mar-a-Lago around New Year’s Eve.

“I said … ‘S–t. I kind of wanted to keep that to myself,’ ” she said of the procedure.

He's know he's guilty.

“Do I wish we didn’t have him on 30, 40 times? You know what, if I were running Germany today from 1932 to 1934, yeah, I wouldn’t want Hitler to be on 35 times,” Scarborough told hosts Saagar Enjeti and Marshall Kosloff. “Looking back…I wish it hadn’t happened.”

Trump would call in to the today show and Matt Lauer would allow him to call in and speak when he was running in 2016. He would take up a good part of the first half hour of the show. It made me so mad I would turn it off. They never told Hillary afterwards that she could do the same. I always had the feeling that Lauer was friends with him. Was so happy when lauer got fired.

It should serve as a lesson on what to do if one talks to Trump on air.
Tell him to get lost, then hang up on him.

their show and they'd give all kinds of free air time. They loved it and welcomed his calls as it was before he was absolutely insane and carry on then and it was entertaining in a weirdly insane sorta way.

It helped him get elected. It wasn't until later when they turned against him when he talked about Mika's face bleeding from plastic surgery and other crazy shit.

I think it's recent because they regularly bash trump and the republicans now as they know that party has gone so extreme right it's crazy. Mika especially on women's rights.

And from that brief clip you tell from his insane, uncontrollable talking that it's probably the current trump.

doing something appropriate today. He helped create this problem. He has MUCH to do to atone. He could get Trump on the phone now and then hang up on him. THAT would be useful. It’s misleading, should be edited.

Though, they originally got pissed at him cuz he blabbed about Mika's face-lift?

Nevertheless, I say find people like them who hate him NOW! At least they turned around. We need more people no matter who they are to turn around IMHO.

I just love it when tRump gets the shit slapped out of him -- the judge in the fraud trial, the AG in the fraud trial, and -- coming up I hope -- the jury in the insurrection trial. And the Supreme Court -- keeping my fingers crossed.

Joe would start a segment praising him and would say his name 10 times in just over a minute. He knows very well the effect of repetition. It's like the networks focusing a shot of the plane or an empty podium with the name and the flags to keep on in the background behind the talking heads during an entire 6 minute segment. They knew full well what they were doing, why and the impact it was having. There was never a more glaring display of how sexist this country is because you couldn't find anything similar for their treatment when talking about Hillary. The only things they did constantly keep in the public framing for her and any mention of her name were Benghazi and e-mails. Both of which were as empty as can be from the beginning.

The difference in framing, pushed over the edge in impact by Comey, could not have been more glaring. They knew it even to the extent of downplaying the well known issues of the Orange Ruski and his known history of racism, crooked business deals and being cozy with questionable crime figures.

This is from Dec of 2015.

Unfortunately, they gave him plenty of airtime prior to that. And talked about him non-stop.

so they went to break and whoever had trump on the phone whispered sweet nothings to soothe the orange baby before the phone went click.
