Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

Recommended Posts

They're doing a segment titled, "What does the Republican party stand for?"  This involves Joe and Clare McCaskill speculating about Senator Joe Manchin and the filibuster.  The problem with this is that Joe Manchin is a DEMOCRAT, even though he sometimes takes conservative positions.  The air is out of the tires on this stupid show.

I thought the show would focus on Infrastructure,earmarks, corporate tax rates etc. They could invite guests to discuss those topics, but I doubt Joe or Mika would bother to do some research on the issues.

While I don't spend more than 10 to 15 minutes watching, if this show was filmed in 35 mm, I would say what a waste of perfectly good celluloid.

I caught the last segment of the show today and it was one of the most surreal moments I have ever seen on this show. And that's saying a lot.

Steven Ratner was lecturing about the ills of income inequality without a single acknowledgement that, as Michael Bloomberg's investment manager, his job is to literally increase that inequality by making a billionaire even richer. According to Forbes, Bloomberg was worth $45 billion in 2016. On the latest list, he's worth $59 billion. A chunk of that increase is presumably because of Ratner's effort.

So, keep talking about increased income inequality Steve. You truly speak from experience.

I used to really like Ratner, but he was such a sourpuss about the Rescue & Recovery Act he lost major points with me. Listening to a rich guy who makes other rich guys even richer snark about how the stimulus should have been more targeted so that the so-called "undeserving" wouldn't inadvertently benefit pissed me off royally.

I started watching the Barnicle Brothers' Netflix doc about the Gardner Museum heist, and it is surprisingly engaging.

It's good. Normally I'm skeptical about cutesy "art heist" documentaries, because they're either poorly researched, super cheesy or consist mainly of boring interviews with lawyers from Switzerland. But this was actually well-structured and interesting. The vibe was pretty unique, they made it kinda eerie and sad and haunting... which is exactly the right tone IMO because art theft isn't cool, or glamorous, it's depressing as fuck. The music director of this series deserves an award for intuiting this.

IMO there's no greater crime than stealing light and hope and beauty from countless future generations. The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum still keeps the empty frames up for the stolen paintings, and it's a gut punch.

The article below is an excellent profile of him.

That's a deep dive right there! Thanks for posting that. I loved the dig at his size..."even elfin"...but Rattner's ego is plenty boosted by all that wealth. What is it with money guys and wives with bad behavior? Kevin O'Leary's wife at the helm of the boat that killed two people didn't help his reputation, either. I wonder if Rattner runs the money for the Brz. clan? Or the massive fortune of Mr. and Mrs. Scarborough? We'll never know since disclosure doesn't seem to be a thing with this crowd.

I don't know if the Brezezinski's & Scarborough's have enough money to meet the minimum wealth requirements  to be  managed by Rattner.

He was managing $5B of Bloomberg's money.

Friday Mini Recap. I was surprised to see Mika & Joe on set given it is Joe's birthday. Long time viewers remember that Mika & Joe would always have big cakes on the set to celebrate their birthdays.

Mika is appropriately dressed in a green cardigan.

The show began with a clip from Jimmy Kimmel making fun of Trump's press conference on April 8, 2020. Trump thought there would be less than 100K deaths.

Joe started laughing at the clip. It's hilarious that thousands of people died. I don't think it's funny that over 500,000 Americans died, but YMMV

Mika wished Joe a Happy Birthday Sweetie!

I get the sense that Mika & Joe want to pretend that Trump is still President so they can take cheap shots at him. Trump is irrelevant to the current Covid crisis.

Mika told Joe to stop laughing.

Recap continued.

Joe made fun of the Red Sox. Mika shouted about the Mets!

ESPN Joe said the umpire made a mistake in the game between the Marlins & the Mets.

Joe said the Marlins will do better this year.

Heilemann is the special guest. Eugene Robinson & the Elizabeth Mueller.

Joe joked about Eugene writing a column about his performance at the 1987 Masters.

Mika sighed that she hoped Joe wouldn't behave like he was during the entire show.

Mika brought up the Matt Gaetz scandal. It's sex trafficking. Mika was disgusted about Gaetz having sex with 17 year olds.

Joe took off his glasses to talk to Heilemann. Heilemann started laughing at Goldberg's lawyer. Does Heilemann realize that Gaetz's dad is a friend of Joe ?

Joe is worried about Goldberg co operating with the state of Florida.

Michael Schmidt appeared wearing a sweater. Greenberg will plead guilty to sex trafficking. He will cooperate to get Gaetz prosecuted.

Joe said it is bad to transport 17 year olds across state lines for sex.

Schmidt talked about ghost candidates.

Elizabeth Bumiller said Greenberg has to provide documentation to prove documents. Gaetz's staff is quitting.

Mika read about a former NFL player that killed 5 people. Thi is sad.

Dr Scott Gotlieb showed up. The USA has FULLY vaccinated 20% of the population. It is very impressive.

It will be difficult to deliver vaccines to lower income countries. They don't have fridges.

It is important to vaccinate Mexicans, because it close to the USA.

Richard Engel has a special on the Capitol Riot. The rioters chased after a black cop that voted for Joe Biden.

Mika interviewed Brooke Baldwin. Mika discussed her KYV community.

Mika said many women support her.

Brooke said it was a honor to be on KYV? What ?

Brooke is leaving CNN. I like her. She own Pugs.

Brooke was happy about the woman's march in 2017 after Trump was inaugurated.

Unfortunately, the Canadian government botched the vaccine procurement from Pfizer & Moderna, so we were behind the USA & the UK in obtaining vaccines. The vaccine administration per population has caught up to Germany,France & Italy.

The good news is that more supplies have arrived recently. My wife is getting her first shot next Friday. I have to wait a bit longer since I am younger than her.

Canada should have 70% plus of adults vaccinated with one dose before the end of June. The problem is that the health officials are delaying the second dose for 4 months, so they can get as many people partially vaccinated.

I think Joe was looking for  few good rants this week against "lazy teachers" who wanted to stay home & "Cancel Culture MLB" for moving the game to Colorado from Georgia. His rants fizzled because the guests wouldn't agree with him.

I find it fascinating to see how Joe is trying to get attention with "hot takes" on issues, to increase ratings but no one cares.

Mika was happiest on Friday when she got Brooke Baldwin to join her Know Your Value Network & write articles for Mika's website.

Boehner can take a long walk off of a short pier.  A few years ago I trapped him in an elevator at a very nice resort hotel; Mr. Kemper and I were celebrating our 48th.  When he passed us in the hall I told Mr. K that I was going to try and chat with him in the elevator.  Sadly, we were on the second floor...so I only had a minute to tell him that he was partly to blame for the state our country was in.  Nicely.  He harumphed (sp?). I think he had been attending a conference/meeting/frat party at the resort for marijuana companies or some such.

I will have to recap this how later today. Boehner has a good sense of humor & is a red wine drinker. I will go buy a bottle of red wine in order to do a proper recap.

I have a Swiss army knife with a wine opener. I would never the leave the house without it.

Did Joe bring up that he implied that Boehner was bar hopping at 5 pm, when he was the House Minority Leader in 2010 ? Joe implied that Boehner was lazy & wasn't working hard enough in June 2010.

I watched for a short time while we listened to her read a NYT piece about Gaetz and the sex thing. No surprise that Joe didn't read it but she sure didn't seem comfortable; but then she never does. Her questioning from there was rambling and difficult to listen to. She ought to write down questions in advance rather than freestyle it. But that would be considered show prep and that's not her thing. It would be easier for all involved if she'd take the easy way and just say "Michael, explain your findings" or similar. I clicked away. Was Joe even there? I'd think Mika would be the one in Time Out after yesterday's Boehner interview.

I was a bit confused today about the J&J vaccine - Willie said it was a really small chance, like one in a million, for everyone.... but then Fauci also said all of the cases of the blood clot thingy were women 18-48? So... what is the *specific* risk for women 18-48? Like how many women 18-48 have gotten the J&J, and how many of those had this problem?

just to clarify, i'm so inspired and grateful for the vaxx efforts and also pretty desperate and would definitely and gratefully take any vaccine offered to me... I just wanna know the specifics for my group and what to look out for, if you know what i mean. I'm glad they are being honest about this stuff, for me at least that actually does increase trust FWIW

Thursday Recap with wine. I will recap a bit of the show before the baseball game.

The show opened with clips of  President Bush announcing military action against Al Queda training camp in Afghanistan on October 7, 2001.

I remember watching that clip live in Oakville & my American relatives who were visiting for dinner getting worried & having to go back to Buffalo that night. They were worried about the border closing.

Next clip was Obama announcing 33,000 troop reductions in Afghanistan in May 2012. The USA would have no troops by the end of 2014.

Next clip from Trump changing his mind about leaving Afghanistan in August 2017.

Biden announcing in front of the same window as Bush that the USA will leave Afghanistan in September 2021.

Mika was dressed nicely today. Willie & Joe are serious.

Interesting, after the clips, Joe did not go into a long rant about how he was right about the War in Afghanistan.

Protests in Minnesota last night. Joe said Kim Potter should not have shot Duane . She is a veteran police officer.

Joe admitted that he cheered when the USA left Iraq but it created  a void filled by Isis.

Joe admitted that the Taliban will be cruel toward women, girls & are Islamic extremists. Isis will go to Afghanistan.

The USA may have to go back to Afghanistan in a few years. General Petreus disagrees with Biden.

Willie said UK troops died in Afghanistan. Katty said the Taliban has not changed since 2001.

The 2500 troops are keeping the peace in Afghanistan.

Joe said Trump was wrong to pull out troops in Kurdistan.

Mika was allowed to speak at 6 32 am. Mika said this has been a long debate. Many people are tired of the USA troops being there for 20 years.

Joe said troops have been in Germany since 1945 & Korea since 1953.

 

 

 

Chris Murphy supports leaving Afghanistan.

He is worried about the Chinese & Russians.
