As of Wednesday morning, Kellyanne Conway is no longer welcome on the MSNBC Morning Joe show. Hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, (daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski – Counselor to President Johnson/National Security Advisor to President Carter) the two co-host banned Ms. Conway from appearing on their show.
As the Washington Post reports this morning, Mika wasn’t reticent about her reason’s for blackballing Kellyanne: (via WaPo)
“We know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show,” Brzezinski said. “I won’t do it, ‘cuz I don’t believe in fake news or information that is not true. And that is — every time I’ve ever seen her on television, something’s askew, off or incorrect.”
Joe Scarborough didn’t hesitate to pile on, seemingly echoing the recent SNL Jake Tapper/Kellyanne sketch:
“Without making an explicit reference, Brzezinski and Scarborough offered a description of Conway that recalled her character on the latest episode of “Saturday Night Live. In the sketch, Conway (Kate McKinnon) stalks CNN anchor Jake Tapper (Beck Bennett) and holds a knife to his throat until he agrees to let her back on television. “She’s in none of the key meetings,” Scarborough said. “She goes out and books herself often. … I don’t even think she’s saying something that she knows to be untrue. She’s just saying things, just to get in front of the TV set and prove her relevance because behind the scenes — behind the scenes, she’s not in these meetings.”
You really have to hand it to Joe, he knows what side his bread is buttered on, and he is fanning the flames for the far left fringe. This morning he furthered his attack on fake news and lying as he drew a straight line from the Clinton White House lies to Congress about selling sensitive missile technology to China combined with his lies about the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, to President Trump and his administration. This is how he compared his time in Congress, and the reaction Representatives in the House had to Clinton and today’s White House:
“…we’ve heard you talking about this stuff for six years, and pretty soon they just stop paying attention, and it took something as base as what happened in the Oval Office with an intern; thats the only thing people would pay attention to. And we actually said, a lot of us sat there going, ‘Seriously, you’re worried about this when you didn’t give a damn about sensitive missile technology being sold by the top contributor to the DNC to China? And thats whats happening here, they lie so much in this White House, that pretty soon people just grow numb to it.” (emphasis mine)
Hyperbole is one thing, but this is incredible. Comparing this nascent administration to perhaps the greatest liar ever to inhabit the White House strains credulity.
The fact that these conversations at the Morning Joe table take place without ever mentioning Susan Rice, who went on five Sunday talk shows and deliberately blatantly lied about Benghazi, is galling to the extreme. Not to mention Hillary Clinton’s lack of familiarity with truth, to say nothing of President Obama’s team regarding Fast and Furious, Solyndra scandal, or the mountain of lies we’ve had to endure with the secret Iran deal (side agreements, hostage ransom payments, secret funds to Iran).
The famous theologian and minister Charles Spurgeon once said: “Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.”
The guys at Morning Joe certainly are very talented, but their attempts at sincerity are laughable. The long knives are out, and the MSM is complicit in their open partnership with the Democratic Party. You have to wonder how long Republicans, and in particular Trump supporters will stand for this assault before they start fighting back.
