he said “On day one, I will have folks that will get together and look at all these cases, who people are victims of weaponization or political targeting, and we will be aggressive in issuing pardons.”“I mean, he’s not really that stupid,” Scarborough said on Friday morning. “Maybe he’s talking like a third grader? We’re talking about people who tried to overthrow American democracy, and Ron knows that.
He knows that. And yet, he’s playing that game?”Scarborough then pulled up a clip of Trump’s similar response to a question about pardoning January 6 rioters, before visibly getting angry at both Republican candidates.“It’s unbelievable.
Law and order? The party of law and order? That’s what they always tell us,” Scarborough said. “Is it law and order for the poor? Is it law and order for the dispossessed? Is it law and order for what, everybody but rioters who tried to overthrow the federal government to keep a Republican in the White House after he’d lost?”Scarborough also warned that neither Trump nor DeSantis will win swing-voters with this promise.“Let me tell you something.
The rotted corpse of what once was the Republican party, it just keeps lurching forward, zombie-like, and it will follow Donald Trump into whatever gutter he takes them on this 8-year march toward fascism,” he said. “Not almost-fascism, not something quite like fascism, but fascism itself!”You can watch the full moment in the video above..
Joe Biden may have stumbled yesterday at the US Air Force Academy graduation, but the President had some swagger tonight.
a Washington Post column from David Ignatius, in which Ignatius argues that Biden “delivered” this week on his inauguration promise that “My whole soul is in this, bringing America together.” But, for Joe Scarborough, Biden “not only delivered this week, he’s been delivering for quite some time.”“You look at how he once again, once again, defied expectations, not only from the haters, but his own party, and it’s a pretty remarkable record,” Scarborough said. “You look at the bipartisan legislation and anybody who would mock that, Willie, please, show me a president in the last 25 years, the last quarter century, that’s had more bipartisan legislation than Joe Biden.”Scarborough also compared Biden to singer Neil Young, recounting a story of a concert Scarborough went to a few years ago, during which Young responded to fans calling out song requests by saying “You know, I’ve done this before.” Scarborough noted that that memory now reminds him of Biden, because “there’s no substitute for experience,” to which Willie Geist largely agreed.“He’s been there before he’s experienced.
Zack Sharf Digital News Director Harrison Ford is taking some responsibility for the tension that developed with Brad Pitt during the making of their 1997 thriller “The Devil’s Own.” The film, which notably marked the last directorial effort from Alan J. Pakula (“All the President’s Men,” “Klute”), earned mixed reviews but grossed $140 million worldwide. Ford has often said in past interviews that it was difficult filming “The Devil’s Own.” When Esquire magazine recently asked why, Ford said it was due to creative differences he had with Pitt. “Heh. Yeah, I remember why,” Ford said. “Brad developed the script. Then they offered me the part. I saved my comments about the character and the construction of the thing—I admired Brad. First of all, I admire Brad. I think he’s a wonderful actor. He’s a really decent guy. But we couldn’t agree on a director until we came to Alan Pakula, who I had worked with before but Brad had not.”

I would argue that he needs to bring everyone into the process more.”Miller said he believes McCarthy will “evolve” his opinion on the matter.“I’ve gotten to know him really well over the past seven years,” Miller, a former advisor to Donald Trump, told Hannity.

bipartisan agreement on a new debt ceiling bill this week, but Republicans apparently aren’t too pleased with it – something the “Morning Joe” hosts called out as “hypocrisy squared” on Wednesday morning.The new bill, which is set to face a vote on Wednesday, needs to pass the Democrat-controlled Senate before the June 5 deadline set by the Treasury Department, or the country risks default. On Tuesday though, the Freedom Caucus minced no words about their feelings on the bill, saying “we will do everything in our power to stop it and end it now.”In discussing that opposition on Wednesday morning, host Joe Scarborough was just kind of flabbergasted, considering how Republicans handled the debt crisis while Trump was in office.
Presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis once again called out Disney over Memorial Day weekend, and, come Tuesday morning, the hosts of “Morning Joe” were cracking up at the Florida governor’s assumption that invoking his feud with the company would help him in a state like Iowa.During an interview with “Fox and Friends”, DeSantis argued that Iowans should vote for him over twice-impeached-once-indicted former president Trump, because Trump has “taken the side of Disney” and “I think a multi-billion-dollar company that sexualizes children is not consistent with the values of Florida, or the values of a place like Iowa.”After playing that clip on Tuesday morning, the “Morning Joe” hosts and panelists were stunned before anything else.“Ron DeSantis decides that he’s gonna launch his campaign by talking about how the Magic Kingdom sexualizes children,” Scarborough marveled. “This is something that, again, we’ve all grown up with Disney.

2024 presidential election poll “horrible news” for President Joe Biden, as it found 66% of surveyed Americans say a Biden victory would either be a disaster or a setback for the country. “When it comes to how voters see Joe Biden and another presidential term, I mean those are some bad numbers,” Tapper said.The poll, released Thursday and conducted last week, found that 41% of Americans believed it would be a “disaster” if Biden were re-elected next fall, while 26% said it would be a “setback.” Watch the full video above (video via Tom Elliott on Twitter).The poll also found that while Biden would still likely receive the vast majority of Democratic votes in 2024, his overall approval rating sat at just 35% – with popularity declining among Democrats and independents recently. “Views of Biden are sharply more negative than are views of each of the three living Democratic past presidents,” the poll wrote.“That’s a big warning sign,” CNN Political Director David Chalian told Tapper of Biden’s dropoff among independents. Current approval numbers are nearly identical to that of his likely opponent Donald Trump, according to the poll. “It’s worse for Biden, but for both of them, most of the American people think electing them would be a disaster or a setback for both Joe Biden and Donald Trump,” Tapper summarized. “It is not an election the American people want,” Chalian replied.“What a country,” Tapper concluded.Following what many deemed a disastrous town hall featuring Trump earlier this month on CNN, Fox News has lined up another town hall with the former president moderated by show host Sean Hannity.

South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott announced his presidential run Monday, with a special mention of billionaire Larry Ellison, who has poured $25 million into Scott’s super PAC, Opportunity Matters Fund.“I choose freedom and hope and opportunity,” Scott told the crowd gathered in North Charleston, South Carolina, on Monday. ”We need a president who persuades not just our friends and our base” but seeks “common sense” solutions and displays “compassion for people who don’t agree with us.”From the stage, he specifically noted Ellison’s presence in the crowd, calling him a “great mentor.”Since 2020, Elison, co-founder of Oracle Corp., has made a series of donations totaling $25 million to Scott’s Opportunity Matters Fund – a conservative Super Pac.

backing previous statements made by her co-host Scarborough saying, “Mickey Mouse has brass knuckles because he’s taking on Bob Iger… You don’t do that.”“This is politically such a rookie move to do these gesture politics, to try and own the libs and maybe get in a small subset of the Tampa area,” Brzezinski said Friday. “In the end, you end up costing Florida jobs.”The MSNBC host added that the Florida governor “can’t see one foot in front of his face.” “I don’t know how that plays on the big stage, and I think it gives Trump a lot of material.”On Thursday, Disney announced it had pulled the plug on an employee campus that was expected to come to Florida, citing “changing business conditions.” The complex was a $1 billion investment that would have brought an estimated 2,000 white-collar jobs to the state.
