Katie Tur has been off since April and she seems to still have a job. Yasmin took off 4+ months and she had a job when she got back. Mika used this same theme with her, like she's trying to stir up shit regarding women taking maternity leave at the network. 

All due respect, if Kasie didn't discuss with the network how the show would be handled in her absence, and when she would come back to work, she should have.    But I'm sure since she's Mika & Joe's little pet, they had to stick their noses into it.  

And again THIS^^^

Geez that whole KYV is such a farce.

Seems like Mika isn't doing a very good job expanding her base. She has to continually return to the MSNBC well to get new source material

I think NBC owns KYV.  The URL is https://www.nbcnews.com/knowyourvalue
In that context it only makes sense that they'd promote their own vs other news media stars.  But it doesn't explain why the "movement" hasn't gained traction from women in other industries.
Oh, also, the whole conceit of KYV is off-the-charts stupid.

Honestly, does anyone recall any other female panelist ever squealing like that?  Ever??  

And Katty seems especially put out with Meek-a this morning.   Katty helped keep this ship afloat while Meeks was off mountain climbing, so to have to sit there on her hands while Mrs. Scarborough squeaks and giggles her way through the show must be especially galling.  She must be thinking, "I'm playing 5th banana to this bubble head??"

Mika was happy that Joe Biden is still leading in the polls.

He has 29%. Bernie has 15% & Warren has 14% . Pete & Kamala have 5%..

Harris fell 12% to 5%.

Joe said he was right about Kamala being a flash in the pan after the first debate.

Willie admitted that its' still early in the process.

Mika & Joe joked about Sam Stein being an aging teen sensation. He was not amused.

The new graphics show Mike's Hot Takes. Stein is upset at being on the air. Mika started making baby noises.

Joe liked Andrew Sullivan's article on conservatism.

Mika stumbled over reading the teleprompter again.

I have adopted a violent dislike of John Delaney. He looks to me like what a penis would look like if it were always angry and perpetually put-upon.

Also, there is no talking point I hate more than any economic analysis that uses election day 2016 as a starting point (yes, Katty Kay, I'm looking at you - you should know better). As everyone on the panel knows, a new president can't affect economic policy until after *taking office.* (and even then it takes a while for any policy to kick in). So why is Katty talking about the stock market "since Trump was elected"? Why is she adopting his talking point?

I KNOW!!  I was trying to restrain myself from being overly critical of a fellow older woman's looks, but what the hell--here goes.  Her face has become so shiny because of her extreme cheek fillers that it looks like light is being projected out from them.

Mika had mixed feelings about Warren apologized for her past claims of being part native american.

Is Kilimanjaro code for plastic surgeon? I didn't watch yesterday but I turned it on this morning and not only did she get her hair cut but she looks "refreshed". I noticed immediately she looks different. However she still can't read.

Well she did say she would only post a couple pics because "it was a time for my daughter and I and blah blah" fuck off Mika we know you're full of shit.

So her daughter is going along with her bullshit? 

Did she hike the mountain or just go look at it for 5 minutes then fly to Paris or wherever she gets her face fixed? It takes 5-9 days to hike it. That's the entire time she was gone with a couple days to fly there and back.  If she hiked Kilimanjaro I won the Boston Marathon. Twice.

Exactly!  Between travel, pre-climb instructions and training, decompressing after a grueling climb and she's back in no time at all?  And perky!  Yep I agree, I totally call bullshit.

I thought the whole "funny" bit about Sam was over the top, and actually, quite rude. I also saw that pissed look, more than once. I'm surprised he didn't get up and leave the set! Meeks is getting too giddy, and it's hard to take her comments seriously. Perhaps her idea of "climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro" is taking a helicopter view of the mountain? Those pics will be interesting.

Why all the doubt as to whether Mika climbed Kilimanjaro? It's definitely NOT Everest LOL, tons of tourists do it every year. I agree she did it a bit too fast, and she probably got horrible altitude sickness and/or hypothermia, but she's still relatively fit and I don't see why she shouldn't have managed to drag herself up there. It's the altitude that kills you, but as mountains go, it's not particularly dangerous or taxing with the right precautions. 

IDK I find her unprepared and floundering in many ways, professionally and academically,  but I see no reason to doubt her honesty about what she did during her vacation. 

And Sam Stein is obviously in on the joke, and has been, for years. Yeah it's maybe getting a bit stale, but in my opinion it's a lot better than the faux-seriousness, clamped feeling they sometimes resort to. As much as they annoy me, I'd much rather have them relaxed and natural than stifled and overly formal...

I never heard of this company, but I bet they did something on that order, rather than actually climbing. Well, we shall see. Re: Sam Stein: I don't mind some joking either, but this went on much too long, and had a bit of a nasty tinge to it. The only time Sam actually laughed was when Willie made the "I was the aging teen sensation too", or something like that. Then, and only then, was Sam amused.

MSNBC won't build them a proper studio in their home so they each have their own camera. It would look unprofessional for them to sit together on a small set.

I think the wedding was delayed due to some issues with the daughters & Joe.

Mika requested a full 3 hour televised wedding on MSNBC. The network refused.

Joe wanted his band to perform after the wedding.

The daughters wanted to keep the ceremony private.
