Lying about a rival is bad, even if you don’t like his past positions.
Joe ScarboroughJarring words from @PaulKrugman regarding Bernie Sanders:
“The Sanders campaign has flat-out lied about things Biden said in 2018 about Social Security & it has refused to admit the falsehood. This is bad; it is, indeed, almost Trumpian.”
The daytime co-hosts’ heated bipartisan debates are played down as disagreement among friends. But the strain for “civility” is tiring.
Joe ScarboroughWhat an embarrassing example of how the Left is becoming even more insular by the day. That is saying a lot.
“Ms. McCain is the privileged product of conservative nepotism, capitalism and the American military-industrial complex.”

Elizabeth Warren has fallen into third place in New Hampshire with just one month to go until the New Hampshire primary, according to a new NBC10 Boston/Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll. The poll, released Monday, has Joe Biden in first...
Joe ScarboroughNew polling out today has Biden winning Iowa and NH. If that were to be the actual outcome, the race would be over by SC. As for now, any one of four candidates could sweep the first two states.
The Sussexes have been preparing for years to sever their relationship with the royal press pack, which the prince still blames for his mother’s death.
Joe ScarboroughA 13 year old boy saw the paparazzi chase his mother to her death. Don’t tell him to “move past it”. If this is how he believes he can best protect his young family, more power to Harry.
Even with a black man in custody and charged with hate crimes for the attack at a Hasidic rabbi’s Monsey, N.Y., home, religious leaders and elected officials partnered in peace to denounce a violent bias blitz that has Jews across the region on edge.
Joe Scarborough“If it had been attacks against the members of the black community, we would have stood up and spoke out. We cannot remain silent as we see a consistent pattern against people based on their faith and based on who they are.”
Joe Scarborough“The Constitution provides for impeachment and removal to protect us from officials unable to distinguish between the common good that government is supposed to serve and their own narrow interests. Trump is just such a president. Congress should act.”
The Labour Party’s lurch to the left lost the working class.
Joe Scarborough“Democratic presidential candidates have responded to their 2016 defeat by trying to buy off working-class base with Corbyn-like taxes, spending and identity politics. British voters didn’t buy it and Americans won’t either.” ~@WSJopinion
A conversation with the evangelical pastor and theologian.
Joe Scarborough“The proper cultural strategy is faithful presence within, not pulling away from the culture and not trying to take it over.
It means we’re not going to assimilate, we’re going to be distinctively Christian. It’s about an attitude of service.” ~Tim Keller
"Behind closed doors his own top officials deride him as an 'idiot' and a 'moron,'" an anonymous senior Trump official says in a new book.
Joe Scarborough"He stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity," the official warns. Often, "the president can't remember what he's said or been told."
Incidents at Northwestern and Harvard reveal a growing tension between traditional journalistic practices and the demands of student activists.
Joe ScarboroughSo journalists on campus now have to balance offending the heightened sensitivities of those on “the left” with traditional journalistic standards?
And protesters feel violated when a photo journalist takes a picture of them?
What a joke.

At first glance, President Trump's reelection chances don't look good. Stories about impeachment and presidential misbehavior dominate the news.
Joe ScarboroughThe Democratic nominee will determine Trump’s fate, not impeachment. @continetti explains how a weakened president can still win with the right opponent. Warren’s just released plan make his insights more relevant than they were a few hours ago.
The biographer went looking for the inner life of Ronald Reagan. He didn’t find it.
Joe ScarboroughThe mystery behind Reagan’s impenetrable personality always fascinated me, as did Edmund Morris’s breathtaking failure to peel away his “10th layer”. The great Andrew Ferguson remembered the tortured Reagan biographer earlier this year. A great read.
Democrats plan to forgo lengthy court fights over gaining access to key impeachment witnesses, assuming that those who fail to appear would confirm President Trump’s guilt.
Joe ScarboroughNancy Pelosi’s timing was perfect on moving the impeachment inquiry forward, and her timing on this vote is also pitch perfect. She has once again made Trump sycophants look like dolts. Not hard, I know, but still rewarding.
