MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” hosted by alleged Republican Joe Scarborough and his fiance Mika Brzezinski, believes they can cover President Donald Trump fairly.
Considering the months of consistent presidential pounding by the pair, including Brzezinski saying she wouldn’t allow Kellyanne Conway on the show, it seemed rather improbable.
On Thursday, guest Mike Barnicle said the media needs to be fair to the president because “40 percent of the people in this country who believe still in Donald Trump.”
“Going forward, this investigation and our attitude toward it, and our commenting on it, ought to take more consideration into what these people are going to feel, if they do end up feeling that their vote, their feelings, their resentment…have been stripped from them,” he said.
Scarborough said that wouldn’t be an issue for him.
“I think we’re gonna be able to cover this in a more balanced, nuanced way that doesn’t send the impression that we are going after Donald Trump,” he said. “When, in fact, a lot of us were frightened that the Constitutional framework…was under attack.”
How did he follow that?
On Friday, to open his show, he went on a personal attack against Vice President Mike Pence accusing him of either being a “dupe” for the president or a “liar.”
“We are faced with two options with Mike Pence,” he said before saying he likes Pence and his family.
“As it pertains to Michael Flynn, as it pertains to Rod Rosenstein and the firing of Donald Trump,” he said in a Freudian slip his guest Bob Woodward caught.
“Mike Pence, the vice president of the United States is either a sucker and a dupe for Donald Trump, is being set up that way to go out and lie and lie and lie again, or he’s a liar,” Scarborough asserted. “Or he’s a liar. There’s no middle ground.”
“If it is the first, I think it’s about time for Mike Pence to go to Donald Trump and say, as I think most of us would, ‘if you set me up to be your liar again, I’m walking.'”
Sure, that seems like unbiased coverage.
