Why is Morning Joe always in a perpetual outrage?

he seems insufferable honestly. to be fair its not always anti clinton although it seems the past 2 weeks it has been. But he seems so outraged all the time. Like he has the moral authority on whats right and wrong in this country. And mika who i always took as a progressive is like hes little lacky. Mika for god sakes get your own views and stop parroting joe like hes some crush you want to mimic on a daily basis. They are hammering the clintons on the foundation like is it was the most personal thing. The condecending head shake that mika did when discussion the clinton foundation was disgusting.

Hey mika, how many millions of poeple have YOU SAVED? aids patients? sorry i couldn't hear the number? what was that? a BIG FAT ZERO? then STFU about shutting down the clinton foundation.

1. The better question is why so many people on this forum watch him religiously,

agonize over the stupid shit he says, and post thread after thread about the crappy show.

Just turn it off.

26. I was actually reading a comments section on an article about Morning Joe

And there seems to be a lot of people who hate his show. Used to watch, still watch but hate it.

I don't watch. I'm usually in my car at the time and don't listen on satellite either. He's a republican for crying out loud. Why would anyone who is dem or progressive bother with his show? It's like a token show MSNBC airs to compete with Fox and Friends for viewers. Turn the shit off.

8. joe has always been awful, but what mika does is far more damaging to women

i stopped watching that show several years ago because all she would do was nod in agreement with all his right wing mansplaining crap while at the same time claiming to be the representative of a strong modern day woman. she comes across as nothing more than his glorified girl friday who prostitutes out her so called values as a strong woman in order to cash a paycheck. their show is a sham.

The 50's woman with no thoughts of her own, seeming to always support the thoughts of her man.

Screw that. Can't you think? Oh gawd, wouldn't want to offend.

9. Thier shtick reminds me of the Howard Stern Show

Joe is the big bad political guy. And Mika is the meak, weak, mousy side-kick who is only there to give Joe legitimacy.


For a woman who pretends to care about women's issues, she sure does willing play the subservient role just like Robin Quivers does for Howard.

This might be the worst comparison ever made.

Mika is Colmes to Joe's Hannity.

12. He can't spin this one as a tossup

 

That was always his theme, when Obama led by small margins during portions of fall 2008 and 2012. Like many conventional wisdom types, Scarborough considered a 2 point poll lead to be not much of anything, basically a coin flip. In 2012 he took great offense when Nate Silver assigned high percentage likelihood of victory to a small poll edge. Silver basically laughed at him.

From that point forth I'm convinced Scarborough is desperate for a small polling edge to turn into a loss for the Democrat. He'd be pushing that angle right now if Hillary owned that type of edge. He would still push it if her margin shrinks unexpectedly.

But right now Scarborough is stuck where he can't stand to be, with a Democratic edge he can't rationalize toward coin flip, and that edge owned by a person/family he can't stand, since despite the roughly 15 year age gap he views them as contemporaries who advanced much further than he did.

he showed a 96 clip from Bob Dole raging at a rally after Perot punked him.

Standing next to him on the stage - the asshole in question.

Send an e-mail to MSNBC saying you will not watch MSNBC from 7 to 9 am every again as long as his show is on, and back that up. NEVER watch him again. Watch CNN New Day with Chris Cuomo.

19. Why do you continue to watch a program that you dislike?

That's what the channel buttons on your remote are for. It is hard to commensurate with people who willing subject themselves again and again to activities they hate and then complain about their experiences.

and then his universe exploded. He will never be in politics again so he tries to remain relevant by sniping from the sidelines and being kingmaker. Bitterness manifests as impotent anger.

37. James Comey had some kind words for Joe and his ilk concerning the Clinton server investigation:

"At the end of the day, the case itself was not a cliff-hanger; despite all the chest-beating by people no longer in government, there really wasn't a prosecutable case."

Joe will always hunger to be in politics, yet cannot so he has to settle for talking about those he envies most.

36. I think Pig-Eyed Joe was angling for the vp spot with Trump.

He seems to be sniffing around for some way to leverage the RNC mess to his advantage.

Joe bullies the other men on the panel, knowing they're beholden to him for their livelihoods, while Miki blinks her eyes, bobs her head, and slurps her beverage, all in a state of breathless thrall.

42. The stupid is real

The self aggrandizing is real. It shows in his personality. If you look at what he gets agitated at. A lot of times when he goes off the rails it will be the same stuff he pushed in congress. His favorite was changing government entities to profit based corporation entities.


I have watched him a few times with this election and each time he has shown some kind of stupid behavior. Now I don't want in anyway to possibly support the show. I make sure the cable dvr is on a different channel when I go to sleep.On my cable box it watches and records the last 30 minutes of the channel it is on. So it probably would show up as a viewer.
