Joe liked it when Elizabeth Warren was quiet

Yes that's the problem, he likes it when women are quiet.

Joe told Mika to stop interrupting him.

Is this when she was laughing about Trump's "Melania has a great son" comment?

Joe made fun of Bernie Sanders shouting. They kept showing clips of Larry David.

Mika said that Joe was tough on Senator Claire.

Claire wants people to keep private insurance. She is demanding that Elizabeth Warren tell the truth that MFA will cost money.

Joe called MFA a Monstrosity. Joe said that hospitals will be filled with poor sick people

No Teddysmom it was at the top of the first hour of the show as that was all I watched.  And apparently didn't listen to very well as I can't tell you what they were bickering about.  I'm glad I missed the glee over the flub about his own son as that must have been so painful for all involved and disgusting for those that found it funny.  Good grief he's a child that is growing up in the internet age and will read this if he hasn't already.  That's why I literally gag when she coo's and awwww's over babies and then chuckles over something like this.  She is so revolting.

Joe...where are poor, sick people supposed to go when they are sick? Did he really say that? By the by, Joe.... what kind of health insurance do you have?  The probably excellent plan that MSNBC offers? Or the health-care-for-life that you got from your relatively brief career in Congress?  You know, the one that taxpayers fund?   (Mr. Kemper is a federal retiree, so I am not throwing stones). 

This is terrible, but this forum is kind-of fun today.  We are not alone.

How about having a few "regular" people who are not (mostly) white, entitled assholes on your show to tell about their struggles with health insurance.

I always like when they bring up if we have MFA you'll lose the doctor you have under private insurance.  If you have private insurance through work, your company can change providers any time and you can lose your doctor.  If we actually had universal health insurance, then probably all doctors will have to accept it.

Here is Mr. Kemper and my experience with Medicare.  Medicare is our Primary; Blue Cross is our secondary.  We have excellent doctors; there are a lot to choose from.  When you are on Medicare, you have a wide-ranging choice of secondary plans.  We chose Blue Cross (it is a bit higher than some of the secondary ones); but there are a lot of plans for seniors to choose from, in all price ranges.  There are a lot of low-income seniors who only opt for Medicare; they cannot afford a secondary plan. 

So instead of bloviating from the sidelines, how about having Bernie, Elizabeth Warren and Biden (or any of the candidates) on your show?  You have a 3-hour talk show!  Do none of these people want to come on?

I find it strange that Morning Joe can't get the top 3 candidates on their show.

Don't they realize that Joe is a policy expert on healthcare ?

Senator Cory Booker isn't sure that Biden has the stamina to complete the campaign.

We have a doctor's office in our building, and I can guarantee there are a TON of Medicare patients going in there.  It's obvious Joe and all his rich panelists have no idea what is going on in the real world, even tho he & Mika claim to run around talking to normals all the time, when not in meetings with Obama, or running covert operations for the CIA, or baking cakes.

Kamala Harris came SO CLOSE to making this point today on the show but she missed the opportunity. Every single MFA proponent needs to say this, repeatedly, when people bring up the talking point about "taking away people's private insurance." They do need to address the people who get their health insurance through their employers and are scared of change, not just the people who don't have insurance now and need it. They just need to find a way forward by pointing out that there are risks and deficiencies in the current model. I think that would be a winning message. But what do I know; I only do messaging for a living and everything.

EX-Senator Claire is not an unbiased panelist. She has a very obvious agenda: She ran as a centrist Dem and lost, and now repeatedly tries to re-litigate her campaign by claiming running as a centrist Dem will cause people to lose. Which makes zero sense.

Do ya Oakville?  Do ya really? . . . snort!  They barely show up and when they do they are incredibly rude/dismissive of anyone on the panel which has to be tough when I am sure said panelists want to scream back at them "you are barely there for your own show!".

I think Mika did fly somewhere earlier this summer to meet Joe Biden.

Mika & Joe should go to the Washington or NY studio to do more interviews.

They should only be in NY or Washington.  Them sitting at the little table in their basement is really embarrassing.  I can't understand why MSNBC puts up with it.

Insulting to viewers, coworkers, guests when the titular (heh heh he said titular) host never shows up to the office. Maybe change the name to MorningMaxHeadroom? MorningWillie?

The morgue, then a potter's field.

It would have been awesome if Ebenezer Joe had said, "Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?"

I think Joe is worried that under a Medicare for All program, Doctors would have to spend time treating poor people that currently don't have access to medical care. Doctors would not be able to spend extra time treating VIP's & opinion leaders like Mika & himself.

If doctors had to spend time treating poor people, the doctors would not be able to Know Their Value.

Oakville...Mr. Kemper fixed me an Old-Fashioned.  After that he made guacamole and then we had beer. Down the hatch.  Hats off to you for getting us started every morning.  It has made these last couple of years a bit easier to take.  A bit.

I'm curious, how did Joe and Mika treat the latest sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, given their aggressive support of him (and their bashing of Blasey Ford)?

My DVR did not record the show today, so I have no idea what happened.

I saw about 60 seconds total. 

Mika still can't read a teleprompter without stumbling ever fourth or fifth word.

Joe is a staunch defender of the 2nd Amendment.

Barnicle reminded Joe of all the times he was in New Hampshire at Trump rallies, while Trump was using Elton John's music (apparently illegally).  Elton John was asked to perform at the inauguration, and he declined.

I watched about 10 minutes this morning. Joe announced that Ric Ocasek had died and the first thing he mentioned was that he thought Ric was from Boston, which, when one is talking about the legacy of Ric Ocasek, would probably be 50th on the list of interesting things to mention. Later, he mentioned something about the Red Sox to whatever buffoon on the NY set was listening. Joe is from whatever city that best benefits himself. 

I remain astounded at the vanity lighting in the bunker set. I think the 8th-grade indentured servant intern  they have working for them adjusts the bulbs to "nuclear detonation at Nagasaki" levels and goes home. How the two of them don't have third-degree burns on their faces is beyond me. Seriously. If the lights get any brighter they'll both be rendered invisible while leaving a burn-in on my tv screen.

And apparently someone pumped additional money into their ridiculous remote studio and now we are treated to their ever so professional scrawlings on those tablets of paper they have splayed out in front of them (and please make no mistake.  I love physical documents but I also love well organized notes/thoughts/points written online and then printed out so you can make notes on the physical copy).  Good grief they don't even try anymore and shame on MSNBC as there are so many talented, hardworking folks that could fill their timeslot.

What little I saw they were tut-tutting over the changes the editors made to the article in the NYT after it's initial publication, implying that excused everything Kavanaugh did because the accuser either didn't remember or (more likely) didn't want to be the object of scorn from certain circles. That was about all I could take of the show and turned it off.
