For Trump, ‘Morning Joe’ a higher priority than briefings

Posted by | January 26, 2017 11:00 | Filed under: Media/Show Business News Behaving Badly Politics

The narcissist-in-chief has more and more people worried:

He has told political allies that the news media is his best foil because his supporters don’t trust mainstream outlets. Yet, he chats with network executives behind the scenes, trying to shape his coverage, and he obsesses over ratings.

In the middle of high-level meetings he’ll take phone calls from MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, on whose show he recently surprised the world by declaring “let it be an arms race,” while Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski sat in their pajamas on a Christmas-themed set, digesting his nuclear rhetoric.

      Obsession usually involves lying, because you lose all ability to reason. The target of your obsession obscures the truth.

    If there were a reason to have Morning Joe cancelled, this is it! Media cow towing and catering to Trump is why we have Fox.
    Morning Joe should be replaced by Joy Reid so Trump can learn a few things.
