A week after claiming that a statement supporting Russia in their conflict with Ukraine was a joke, Carlson doubled down on that support.
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” started the week by picking up where NBC’s “Meet the Press” left off on Sunday: Hammering GOP Sen. John Kennedy — and by extension, some of his Republican colleagues — for “repeating Putin talking points,” specifically by reiterating claims of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election.On Sunday, Kennedy accused former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko of “actively” working for Hillary Clinton during her 2016 campaign against President Trump.Also Read: 'Morning Joe': GOP Support of Ukraine Conspiracy Theory Is Like 'Living in an Alternate Universe'Moderator Chuck Todd pushed back then, saying, “You realize the only other person selling this argument outside of the United States is this man, Vladimir Putin. This is what he said on November 20: ‘Thank God nobody is accusing us anymore of interfering in U.S. elections. Now they’re accusing Ukraine. Well, let them sort this out among themselves.’ You just accused a former president of Ukraine. You’ve done exactly what the Russian operation is trying to get American politicians to do. Are you at all concerned that you’ve been duped?”Throughout Monday’s “Morning Joe,” the cable panelists made the same points, criticizing Republicans who fall in line to defend Trump. (That has been a months-long theme of the show, which is hosted by former GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough.)Also Read: 'Morning Joe' Accuses Pro-Trump Republicans of 'Shamelessness' After Impeachment Inquiry Vote“What about these Republicans, these so-called ‘conservatives?'” asked Scarborough, referencing his time in office. “People who stood by me as we fought against Russian influence and the spread of communism and fought for conservative values?”He slammed them for “going on national television, repeating Putin talking points. The United States Senate even gotta a warning from the intel agencies — Donald Trump’s intel agencies — that this is propaganda that Vladimir Putin has been trying to push for the past several years.”Watch the video above.Read original story ‘Morning Joe’ Rails Against Republicans ‘Repeating Putin Talking Points’ At TheWrap
Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang has given thumbs down to MSNBC, saying that it has not treated his campaign as they do other candidates, and he won’t appear on the network until they apologize.“Was asked to appear on @msnbc this weekend — and told them that I’d be happy to after they apologize on-air, discuss and include our campaign consistent with our polling, and allow surrogates from our campaign as they do other candidates’. They think we need them. We don’t,” Yang tweeted Saturday.“They’ve omitted me from their graphics 12+ times, called me John Yang on air, and given me a fraction of the speaking time over 2 debates despite my polling higher than other candidates on stage,” he continued. “At some point you have to call it.”Also Read: Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang Responds to New 'SNL' Cast Member Bowen Yang's Impression (Video)Yang added, “The whole time we have gotten stronger.

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
