For most of 2015, MSNBC’s Morning Joe fashioned itself as anti-Hillary central, the premier venue for the negative narratives concocted in conservative oppo shops to derail Hillary’s campaign.
#HillaryMen chronicled that personal vendetta in real time.
Consider this exchange:
“You want me to indict and damn Hillary Clinton and I’m not going to do it.” This was an exasperated NYT reporter Jeremy Peters on the set of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” as Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski tried to chip away at him and push him to personally declare that Clinton did something horribly wrong.
The panel of MSNBC’s Morning Joe mocked Hillary Clinton for her wardrobe choice during a press conference about her emails, saying it looked like a prison jumpsuit or Mao Zedong.
Joe Scarborough suggests Clinton planned questions about her server to coincide with Virginia shooting coverage.
Scarborough: “You have to be really stupid” to trust Hillary Clinton’s “ridiculous” story.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius thoroughly debunked arguments that Hillary Clinton should be charged with a crime as a result of her use of a private email system while serving as secretary of state. When MSNBC re-aired the first hour of its program later in the morning, the bulk of Ignatius’ debunking had been edited out.
Much as Joe Scarborough would like to pretend that the #SmileForJoe hashtag is an isolated response to an unfortunate choice of words, it is the culmination of a year-long mission to take down Hillary that has finally crashed and burned.
The responses below are epic:
