CABRERA: “Let me ask you about the Russia investigation. I can’t have you here and not. Especially given how much we talked about it in the first year of the presidency.

Larry Wilmore Likens GOP To 13 Children Abused By ‘Creepy White’ Trump & Pence

Liberal comedian and failed Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore made several snide comments about conservatives as he not only cracked that former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was “murdered by a pillow,” but he poked fun at the 13 children who were infamously held prisoner and abused by their parents as he likened them to Republicans held hostage by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence as “that creepy white couple.” He also suggested that those who opposed Martin Luther King Jr. and ultimately murdered him were of the…

An early morning segment on Morning Joe derailed on Friday after Daily Beast politics editor Sam Stein blamed his late arrival to the show on an MSNBC technician. “It was not my fault,” Stein declared, after getting a chiding from Willie Geist for his tardiness. “It was the technician’s fault. I’m going to throw them under the bus.” That vicious comment drew instant condemnation from the rest of the Morning Joe panel, and a five minute pile-on ensued that only let up after Joe Scarborough promised to buy the technician…

Joe Scarborough: ‘Putin Has Something On Donald Trump … And It’s Bad’

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Friday launched into a monologue attempting to explain how he thinks President Donald Trump is seeking to overwhelm the American people with controversy — so that his biggest scandal of all goes unnoticed. Following a discussion in which the Morning Joe panel was baffled as to why reporting that Trump paid off a porn star weeks before the 2016 election to keep quiet about an affair was not a bigger deal, Scarborough listed off a number of other controversies that have been almost forgotten in Trump’s…

Joy Reid: Many Feel Tucker Carlson’s Pushing A ‘Blatantly White Nationalist’ Point Of View

Over the past few days, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight has received quite a bit of scrutiny over its extremely hawkish stance on immigration. With the current conversation in Washington focused largely on DACA and Democrats using the spending bill to demand protections for DREAMers, host Tucker Carlson has devoted a lot of airtime to the topic. And to many folks out there, those segments have come across as racially insensitive and xenophobic. During today’s broadcast of MSNBC’s AM Joy, host Joy Reid briefly addressed Carlson’s attacks on immigrants, stating…

CNN Panel With April Ryan And Stephen Moore Gets Personal: ‘You Were Not Born In This Country!’

A CNN panel debating President Donald Trump’s views on immigration descended into chaos and personal insults after April Ryan accused the network’s conservative economics analyst Stephen Moore of being “biased” against minority immigrants. Moore began the discussion by suggesting the U.S. should focus only on bringing in immigrants who are skilled enough to deserve entry. “I would love to see an agreement that legalizes some of these folks, that provides a more skill based system so that we get the immigrants we need,” Moore said. Ryan immediately shot back, saying,…

Among others, airports, national mail service, national security and law enforcement operations are still operating. Most federal buildings are closed.
