Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

Of course she did. We all know Mika is the center of Mika's world. She always finds a way to make herself and her little project the focus. I would venture to say that just about every age group has been struggling and some may have trouble adjusting to life's changes. It is offensive that she singles out her age group over others.

I saw you were up early recapping this morning Oakville. What did it take for that shift...Bloody Mary's or Mimosa's?!

I find it hilarious that Mika mentioned her own demographic profile as having mental health issues from the virus. Everyone is suffering from this.

Mika is oblivious to the thousands of Floridians that have died from the virus as well as the economic damage done to the state of Florida from the loss of tourism etc.

I remember Mika complaining last fall that she was late for her spa appointment due to extra traffic around the local food bank.

I had coffee while catching up with yesterday's show. Mimosa's sounds tempting !

I caught the first 10 minutes of the show, and assumed Mika & Joe were going to get in the way of reporting the news today.  I guess I was right.

Monday recap. The show opened up with a clip from SNL about awkward quarantine conversations.

Mika & Joe laughed at the clip.

The first story was cyberattacks on pipelines.

Mika complained about cyberattacks on TelePrompters which cause broadcasters to flub their lines.

The cyberattack was probably done by Russian criminal groups.

Joe was surprised that Boris Johnson's Conservatives did very well in local & byelections.

Ed Luce said the red Labor party wall is crumbling. There may be another Scottish referendum.

Joe compared the rise of Conservatives in the UK north to the rise of Republicans in Wisconsin & Pennsylvania.

Joe forgot his talking points from last week that the GOP is doomed everywhere.

Steve Ratner said that there is economic dislocation in the UK. Steve used to work for the Times in the UK.

Mika discussed shootings in Time Square.

 

Joe was happy that Andrew Yang does not support defunding the police.

Joe said it is important to have a police force.

During the BLM protests last year, Joe complained they had to pay for increased security fees at the gated community that he lives in with Mika. However, Joe did say that he supported paying more for security because he was opposed to any looting in his neighborhood.

Mika said women over 50 will struggle with mental health as a result of the pandemic.

 

Granted, every demographic has people who struggled during the pandemic, but Mika has this backward. Women under 50 faced a unique challenge because they are more likely to have school age children. In this country, the mother is typically the one primarily responsible for the care of the kids, so when childcare shut down and school went remote, they were left with difficult choices. Many had no option but to leave the workplace.

This is so true. Excellent point. (As Kemper said, this group has deeper knowledge and insight than the overpaid dolts we are subjected to.) Again, Mika can only relate to herself. She just doesn't see the big picture, ever.

At one point that woman looked like she was caught in the middle of an awkward dinner party fight and just wanted to go home.

Again, another show that really ticked me off. First, Joe launches his nuanced and informed stance of It's Time To Get Rid Of Masks. Now, I'm good with restrictions being lifted but Joe's pronouncements are based on nothing but his personal feelings. If Mika said one more time that '50% of Americans have received their first shot' I was gonna lose it. I was advised that I would not be considered fully vaccinated until 14 days after my second shot. Watching a news show I'd like a little more insight into why Joe thinks "it's time" we all lose the masks (other than FENWAY).

But the Philip Roth segment absolutely set my hair on fire. We are at an age where artists are able to garner so much fame, wealth and (most importantly & undeservedly) influence; I understand writers are a bit of a different arena however Joe brought up musicians as well. I think it's incredibly difficult as you get older to watch pretty terrible people be celebrated as icons who incur zero consequences - to the point it may be difficult if not impossible to appreciate their work. I'm not advocating censorship and I'm not condemning people who can look the other way - I'm just really pissed that an educated man could not present a thoughtful question as to why some of us feel differently than him, instead qualifying his own POV as "adult" and "mature". 

One positive: I really appreciated the efforts of the WaPo critic repeatedly telling all the other guests that they were lying! (the book is still available)

/rant over. However I reserve the right to resurrect this rant depending on how fast I finish this bottle of fume blanc.

Agreed. Can you imagine Mika trying to help her kids with online schooling while co hosting Morning Joe ?

Mka has complained that he was unable to earn income from her KYV seminars due to the pandemic.

I would like to try fume blanc wine. In Canada, it is usually priced at twice the cost of regular Sauvignon Blanc.

I find it hilarious that Joe is trying some "hot takes" on the Coronavirus protocols.

Joe should be embarrassed that he supported having his neighbor. "Dr Dave spinal surgeon" as the top expert for the show on infectious diseases. I remember that "Dr Dave" told Morning Joe viewers in February 2020 that there was a very low risk that the virus would affect Americans.

It's absurd that Mika & Joe continue this charade of pretending to be in separate squares while broadcasting from the Jupiter breakfast nook. They were seated together in Washington last week.

The separate squares allows Joe to leave the show whenever he gets bored with interviewing Senators, Governors, Cabinet Secretaries or Ambassadors.

Joe should demand that the show focus on the Boston Red Sox MLB team & the English Premier Soccer League  when they aren't discussing how the Republican party is doomed.

It's amusing that Joe hasn't brought up his former friend, Congressman Charlie Crist running for Governor of Florida..

Long time viewers remember how Mika & Joe spent the summer of 2010 away from their families on assignment frolicking with Governor Crist when Florida had the oil spill & Crist was running for the GOP Senate primary.

Joe is angry that Lindsey Graham said that the Republicans cannot move forward without Trump.  Joe said that he used to do town halls when he was in Congress.   

I doubt that any Republicans will take his call, but Joe thinks that the leaders of the party care about his town halls  in Pensacola in 2000.  Joe would give out popcorn and cookies and show highlights of his year in review.  Maybe he can advise the Republicans about making VHS tapes.Joe has his finger on the pulse of the GOP.

I can't wait for Joe's exclusive interview with Liz Cheney.  I'm sure he's first on her list.

I don't watch him but wasn't surprised by this since I saw him being introduced as a panel guest on MJ yesterday. Wonder if he'll return the favor and have Joe on his show? Or was effusive praise pay-back enough? I don't care for him at all, personally. Wasn't there a bit of a dust up between LO'D and Joe at some time?

Same here. Do they ever discuss the Biden agenda? The trillion dollar infrastructure plan, the border crisis (dozens of border crossers are released almost weekly here from semi's by smugglers), the job situation, the hacking of the pipeline, the unrest in the Middle East, Russia, China, etc.? You know, current events? Instead we seem to get Trump, Trump, and Mika's "movement". Unwatchable.

So I was definitely half asleep when this was happening but this guy, Niall someone was talking about outdoor mask requirements and closing parks and beaches during the height of the pandemic being ridiculous. I swore I heard joe and maybe Mika agreeing with him to the hilt but I remember him showing pictures of crowded beaches everyday and ranting about social distancing not being adhered too. So like so many other times I think he forgets that his rants are on tape.

Joe gets very upset when people remind him of his support for Trump.

Why won't twitter block any negative comments on his twitter feed ?

Joe considers himself to be one of the top political pundits in the USA.

If Jon Stewart's Daily Show was still on TV, they could have at least 30 minutes of clips of Mika & Joe joking with Trump & attacking Hillary Clinton for being unlikable.

I tuned in at 6am to see an old clip of Trump delivering a speech which was typical and not newsworthy, so I clicked away, as usual. Happened to return a bit later to see a big, modern, empty set with "Morning Joe" emblazoned on it and thought, OMG! They're back in NY! I waited through the commercial for the return and there they were: Boxed-in in FL.😠Why the tease? Do they always show the empty studio? What a waste. There is certainly no reason for them not to participate in normal broadcast operations. I clicked away for good.

Mika & Joe may be willing to appear in the NY Studio once a week when they move to Maine/Nantucket for their summer break.

Joe is working on getting free airplane tickets from Steve Ratner.

Mika should be able to book at least one KYV speaking engagement in NYC by then.

The continued focus on Donald Trump shows how out of touch the show is with the news.

Morning Joe reminds me of those "one hit wonder bands"  that used to play on MTV in the 1990's.

Joe must love the song, "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen.

CNN New Day gets .07 (18-49) age group with 567K viewers.

Wednesday Recap.

The opening clip is Dr Fauci vs Senator Rand Paul.

Joe compared it to  QAnon.

Long time viewers remember that Joe bragged that he voted for Rand Paul's dad, Dr Ron Paul in the 2012 GOP Primary. Joe used to mock Mitt Romney as a loser in 2012.

Joe is excited about Liz Cheney leading a movement like Margaret Thatcher in 1975 & President Reagan in 1966.

 

Joe said the Republican party no longer exists.

Mika was in a huddle with Forbes with women over 50. Liz Cheney is over 50 & may ualify to be interviewed by Mika.

Mika forgot that she routinely complained about Hillary Clinton who was over 50 when she ran for President in 2008 & 2016.

Joe was dating the future Susan Scarborough , a special aide of Governor Jeb Bush. He married Susan in October 2001. He divorced Melanie in 1999.

There is no record of Joe supporting VP Al Gore wanting to continue the recount in some districts.

There is no record of Joe complaining about the US Supreme Court intervening in the election to stop the recount & allow George W Bush to be declared President.

Joe thinks that viewers of his show have no memory.

Joe is a hypocrite because he didn't complain about the Republican tactics that were used to get George W Bush into the White House because he stood to benefit from having a Bush in the White House.

I almost finished a  bottle wine before I got to recapping the show at 7 20 am.

I was watching CNBC this morning. They were able to cover the hacked pipeline affecting gas stations in the South East, the new inflation rates  as well the missiles being launched between Israel & Palestine. They also interviewed Eric Cantor who used to have Liz Cheney's job.

It's telling that Morning Joe has been unable to secure an interview with Liz Cheney in at least a few years.

It's baffling that Morning Joe is unable to cover any news stories but has to focus on Joe's personal vendetta against former President Trump.

Was Joe off today? I tuned in and saw Meeka interviewing Adam Kinsinger; I figured that was one guest Joe would be there for.

And then she ranted at Michael Steele with a comeback I couldn't make sense of.

That's just when I tuned in. What the hell was that about? Prickly, confrontational, yell-ey Mika is not a good look. Fighting with Steele? Why? And when he asked "what would YOU do?" she really had nothing...Was this because Joe was off (not sure as I clicked away) and they felt the need for a fight to help ratings or fill time?

Didn't see the Alexi thing but the idea of promoting her again is distasteful to me. I wouldn't think Mika would accept her back d/t her ethical lapses hitting a little too close to home. But, again, the ratings...wouldn't she be in the demo they're after? Maybe that age group sees her in a different light than I do and would tune in to MJ to follow her?

Speaking of Axios...is Jonathan Swan on anymore? Caught him on Brett Baier's panel the other night...still just as swoon-worthy. Side note: Harold Ford, JR has been made a Fox contributer now, so he no longer has to say "thanks for having me on."

IIRC, the management at Teen Vogue tried to save Alexi's job by having a meeting between Alexi and her young staff. Alexi apologized to the staff for her racist tweets, but the staff would not accept it, so she had to resign.

It's amazing that within 1 year, Alexi dumped her fiance, got her new boyfriend fired, then quit her job at Axios then lost her job at Teen Vogue.

It would be fun if Mika gives her a KYV award.

The situation with Alexi remind me of Stephanie Ruhle, whose affair with the married CEO of Under Armour got him fired.

I'm still on break but I'm actually really happy to read on here that Alexi is back.

She wrote some dumb shit in on twitter in freakin *high school*. And yes, it was offensive, it was inexcusable, but she actually recognized that, took responsibility for it, and apologized without any ifs or buts. there's literally no reason why she shoulda been given the same treatment as the middle aged guys whipping out their penises in meetings and masturbating into plants. if we lose the ability to distinguish the nuances in these cases the whole endeavor just becomes pointless IMO

Discussion of the hosts regarding a specific episode is fine here, but generalized discussion of the hosts go in the The Hosts Thread: Joe and Mika Know Their Value.
