Joe Scarborough recapped the events of the previous night on Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” with a touch of fatigue: “It gets old saying, ‘This was the worst day of the Trump presidency.'”“I don’t know that this was the worst day of the Trump presidency,” the MSNBC co-host admitted, but cited “three huge strikes” that made Tuesday a rough one for President Trump.These were made up of the “absolutely devastating” testimony of U.S. ambassador to the E.U., Gordon Sondland, before the House committees leading the impeachment probe; “losing the reddest of red states” in Tuesday’s state elections; and “watching all of the red bleed out of Virginia” as Democrats took control of the legislature for the first time in decades, “so now it is a completely blue state.”Also Read: 'Morning Joe' Overwhelmed After 'One of the Most Significant News Days' in Trump PresidencyScarborough and co-host Willie Geist pointed out for “Morning Joe” viewers that Trump made a voting plea on behalf of Virginia Republicans and backed GOP Kentucky governor Matt Bevin, who as of Wednesday morning, appeared to have lost to Democratic challenger Andy Beshear.Bevin, Geist said, was “a very unpopular governor,” but “the entire impetus of his campaign was he was like Donald Trump. He attached himself at the hip to Donald Trump.”Also Read: Colbert Gloats a Tiny Bit Over Trump Official Who Reversed His Impeachment Inquiry Testimony (Video)He continued, “Donald Trump can’t run away from this. Republicans cannot run away from the fact that a Donald Trump-backed candidate probably lost — he has not conceded yet but probably lost — the governorship in a state that President Trump won, again, by 30 points.”“Bevin was ahead by five percentage points in the polls before Donald Trump came to the state!” exclaimed Scarborough. “Donald Trump cost him five-and-a-half, six percentage points by they one rally!”Then, Scarborough leaned toward the camera and addressed the president directly: “Donald. Come here. Get a little closer. Donald. Bevin was ahead, son!”Read original story Joe Scarborough: Declaring the New ‘Worst Day’ in Trump’s Presidency Is Getting Old At TheWrap
'Morning Joe' co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were saddened by the passing of their friend, Congressman Elijah Cummings.
The "Morning Joe" host said he thinks Donald Trump is "not mentally fit to be President," and Republicans who support him will "own the resurgence of ISIS."
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is so ubiquitous on cable news these days that Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has asked networks to stop booking him because he will “willingly lie” to protect President Trump, but MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski wants him off TV for another reason.“Is there someone around him taking care of him?” the “Morning Joe” co-host asked Tuesday. “Someone needs to take care of him. It’s abusive.”Giuliani, 75, has been subpoenaed by the House in its impeachment inquiry into Trump. On Tuesday morning, “Morning Joe” played clips of him discussing the matter on Fox News.Also Read: Joe Biden Campaign to TV Networks: Stop Booking Rudy Giuliani“I actually feel sorry for the guy when I see him in the state he was in last night, when I see him shuffling around, confused,” said co-host Joe Scarborough. “I am just shocked and I know Republicans I’ve spoken with on the hill are shocked Donald Trump is letting this guy go out as a free agent, rambling around with apparently no game plan and no focus.”Also Read: Hillary Clinton Says 'Carefully Thinking Through' Isn't One of Rudy Giuliani's 'Strong Points' on 'The Late Show'(Video)Co-host Willie Geist agreed, asking, “I wonder who’s directing this operation? … Who said, ‘Let’s get Rudy on TV again?’ Is it to throw smoke screens up? Because every time he goes on TV, there’s another lie or another problem for Trump.”Scarborough lamented what he sees as Giuliani’s “decreased capacities” from when he was “America’s mayor,” calling it “sad” and “pathetic” to see what the lawyer has become: “Yes, it ruins his legacy, but more than that, I’m wondering who’s around Rudy Giuliani allowing him to continue to go out at night and embarrass himself on TV?”A request for comment from Giuliani was not immediately returned.Read original story MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski Worried for Rudy Giuliani’s Welfare: ‘Someone Needs to Take Care of Him.
