Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

Recommended Posts

1 hour ago, nittanycougar said:

Joe is lecturing two journalists and Mika about what the president said to the Ukrainian president.  His set up is bizarre.  He is role playing the president and his conversations.  It's not really an interview.

Mika nods at Joe's theories and says " hm-mmm."  Is playing the part of the president gonna become a thing for Joe?  Lord.

Joe loves to role play. I expect to see Joe using his "southern country lawyer" accent & pretend to question the jury.

Joe will also discuss his key role during the 1998 impeachment of Bill Clinton.

Joe convinced other Republicans to vote for impeachment.

Joe is lecturing Mika about Ukraine.

It's a big news day for Mika & Joe to be ordered to go to Washington DC.

Joe was excited that Ben Sasse found the whistleblower complaint troubling.

Joe hopes the impeachment trial will increase ratings for the show.

How cow Mom and Dad are in da house!  Must have taken an emergency flight up to DC to personally supervise the Ukraine coverage and a grateful nation says thanks (but seriously no thanks).

Those two don't deserve Robert Costa who is his usual brilliant self.

I an sure that NBC would send a private jet for Mika & Joe to pick them up .

So Joe is snickering about Boris Johnson cavorting with an underling during the day while his former underling is parked next to him.  Oh the irony . . . (plus Meeks was so rude to that British gentlemen in her attempts to get past that particular topic).

I thought that was hilarious. Joe should have discussed why he & Mika had the same dressing room at 30 Rockfeller. I think Mika & Joe decided to stop airing the show live from 8- 8 :30 a.m. a few years years ago. Mika & Joe would return to the set at 8:30 with new clothes. Were those "technology" lessons as Joe called them ?

I know more things have happened since 5 pm yesterday but Nicole's show was amazing yesterday. I'm so glad she's on today to show Mr & Mrs Knucklehead how to run a show with breaking news.  She & Elise were on fire.  Even going back and forth between Trump's UN press conference and the show she it was all smooth, informative, and at times funny.

So I'm hearing ten sets of stapled pages making some exotic sound I've never heard paper make before, while looking at the tops of ten heads. What an unfortunate audio and visual display.

McCaskill and Scoop are trying to outdo each other in the dramatic/ironic reading portion of our program. Mika just came off with "Sheesh!"

The final hour was not a repeat today and now they have continued into the 9:00 hour. They will be exhausted by the time this ordeal is over.

I'm sure Joe demanded he be allowed to be on live up to the hearing. He will not stand for Brian Williams and Nicole to steal his non existent thunder.  Maybe they'll take over once the hearing starts. 

Mika is going to need a sugar blast pretty soon.  She's starting to fade..

Joe bragged about going after Newt Gingrich when he was Speaker of the House.

Joe was a hero. He got 80% of the vote.

I know, me too!  I flounced off once I realized the first half of their last hour wasn't going to be live (like news isn't breaking every five minutes right now, ugh) and when I wandered back I was treated to a full Brady Bunch screen full of the tops of everyone's head . . . 🙂

eta:  Apologies if that half hour was indeed live but since it didn't have the usual LIVE box in the corner of the screen I assumed it was the usual.

I watched this show faaaaarrrrr longer this morning than normal and was really shocked at how pathetic Mika really is. They should just rename this show, "Bring Your Wife to Work Hour" because all she seemed to be doing was leaning into Joe and making sexy eyes at him like an insecure high school hot girl like, "He's mine! This is MY boyfriend! Isn't he hot? He's all MINE! I snagged him and you didn't! MIIIIIIIINE!" 

Then, the report gets released and they're all mining through their copies while Joe continues talking (and talking and talking and talking) and Mika must have spied something particularly juicy and instead of politely breaking in with what she found, kept trying to SHOW Joe what she had circled so HE could talk about it because, clearly, her only contribution to this program besides embarrassing adoration of its host, is to "mmmm hmmm" every three sentences then read whatever was prepared for her on the teleprompter. 

Mika knows her value alright. It's exactly at ZERO.

Giant Misfits  I posted in Hosts thread a while back where Mika is stating in an interview that she made the show what it is. 

She saw the genius in Joe (apparently can only be seen thru Beer Goggles) and she booked the guests and set the tone and did everything to make the show the roaring success that it continues to be.   Apparently she's retired from all that because as you said, now her job is to stare adoringly at Joe emit odd noises periodically so the crew knows she's still conscious, and draw circles on pieces of paper. 

I moved it here because it was about 4 pages back in the other thread, but if you want to see Ego only surpassed by Self Delusion, here's a perfect example.

So either this is a very weird coincidence or Nicole saw our forum.

First she said she was reading as fast as she could earlier on Twitter. Just now on her show she mentioned all everyone could see of her this morning was the top of her head as they read thru the complaint.

I can't believe I missed all of this today.  If Meeka's eye makeup gets any darker she will resemble the eyes of Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra.  And a Clint Watts appearance!  I've seen Nicole Wallace handle breaking news on her show and she is excellent at it; no faces, no breathlessness...just reporting the facts as they come in.  And no "hmmms"

Best description of Meek-a's daily on-air persona ever written.   Brava! 

I know I'm supposed to be focused on Nancy Pelosi's upcoming interview (we'll never hear the end of this now) but.......Mika's hair!    It's probably just an accident of the wind whipping it back into a little flip, but - after eleventy years of her same damn hairstyle, that little upswing has me mesmerized.

Hey ho, it's Outdoor Joe!  The show has been moved to the veranda with a nice shot of the Capital Building in the background to give extra gravitas.  I never would have thought all we had to do is to start impeachment proceedings against a president to get those two to pay attention and participate.  Meeks is sporting windswept hair to mark the occasion.

Today, Willie is in the studio, while Joe and Mika are outside on Capitol Hill.  I live just a few miles from the Capitol.  I am tempted to go down there and see it live.. if only I didn't have this damn job.

Joe mentioned when he was in Congress. Joe showed headlines of the White House in turmoil. Eugene from WaPo is with Joe and Meeks, and someone from Daily Beast.  Joe said there is a political earthquake, and it is bigger than Nixon and Watergate.

Mika said it's just wrong. Insightful analysis.

I think this show would be better with analysis of the actual hearing testimomy.  It is mostly blowhard speculation from Joe.  I guess analyzing the hearing would be too much work for the First Couple of News.

And this is why Nancy is a BOSS.  She doesn't allow them to interview her from the Florida bunker, with all the sound delay issues you get with a remote interview.  No, they must keep their asses in D.C. and sit outside in the cold (and trust me, we've been having warm days but the nights/early morning have been cool) for 1 and 1/2 hours to wait for her.  Then, when it's sunrise and warming up, she joins them.  LMAO. 

On another note, can someone enlighten me as to why Miss KYV has been clutching a clipboard in her lap all morning?  She is an odd duck. 

Edited by jalady · Reason: ETA, I posted before reading this morning. Thanks to all who posted about why she has the clipboards. Pretty funny I referenced it in my snark, even though I didn't notice the logo 😂

Joe is always on his high horse when he can bring a Clinton in a bad light.  No matter what’s happening, he has a Clinton-ism.  So glad Pelosi shut him down when he bragged about his votes for 2 of the articles to impeach Clinton and running down the after-effects (losing his law license, how it sticks with you).  

Joe keeps trying to make it seem like Clinton was abusing the Constitution.  She let him know how they differed on Clinton because it was personal behavior.  Thank you Speaker.   But, since Trump, we know that personal behavior really means nothing to the Republican Party.

She pushed back at them four times, on four different topics. And each time they were sooo self-satisfied when they stated their question/their premise to her. Now I wish I'd kept track of what they were. And it was great.

I was thinking more along the lines of "I could rip your nuts off, toss them over the balcony and there wouldn't be a damn thing you could do about it Joe".

I went the more direct route.

Thank you Joe, for letting me know that Bill Clinton was disbarred in Arkansas for perjury.  I actually didn't know that, and I actually could give 2 shits that he lied about  his immoral, yet consensual sex with an intern.

I hate to be catty; oh wait, let’s be catty. Meeka looked like something out of Night of the Living Dead. No lipstick? Or just very pale lipstick? We r maybe used to seeing her under the harsh lights in full makeup. Very light eye makeup. She looked so washed out; meanwhile, Nancy was ready for her close-up; put together and professional. I guess Meeka will no longer show her legs for an interview? How times have changed. Someone from the network, during a break, should snatch that clipboard away from her.

Mika thought it was appropriate to wear a fucking warm up suit to interview the Speaker of the House, the 3rd in line to the Presidency.  

Can't even wear a nice pair of pants, and a top with a light coat? 

She's such a goddamn joke it's pathetic. 

And Joe saying "OMG a former DOD person told Mika and me TWO MONTHS AGO that Pence threatened Ukraine".

Then Mika says "I just want to mention the sky is a really lovely pink color this morning".  I am guessing she thinks the clouds, sunrise, humidity etc are celebrating Know Your Value? Because Mika, the sky is often a shade of pink or red in the morning and evening based on the conditions of the weather, etc. not because of your women's empowerment fraud.   God will judge you Mika.
