Mika, Joe and Donald: News from the media Twittering Machine

WASHINGTON, July 1, 2017 — Let’s celebrate this long Independence Day weekend by recapping this week’s edition of Media Implosion 2017. It’s something that’s been long overdue in this country, as America has elected a Republican President who’s figured out how to go over the heads of what Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds calls “Democrat operatives with bylines.”

Just as we were beginning to enjoy CNN’s well-earned trip down the drain this week, courtesy of that madcap exposé crew from Veritas, President Trump opened up yet another front in his ongoing War Against the Fake Media by blasting “Morning Joe’s” pair of relentlessly anti-Trump lovebirds, Mika and Joe.

Outrage from the usual Lamestream News suspects ensued, including Mika and Joe. It was largely predictable.

Via Legal Insurrection, we learn:

“On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, guest Tamara Holder—who Reid, ironically, billed as an ‘equal rights attorney and advocate’—mocked the women in Donald Trump’s life.

“Holder was upset that they had failed to condemn the president over his tweets directed at Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.

“Said Holder:

“‘I think the women in Donald Trump’s life probably have smaller minds than his small hands … he has continued to surround himself, Donald Trump, with very, very, weak-minded women, who are afraid of him.’”

Comment: Hey, Tamara, what’s with insulting The Donald and any “weak-minded” women who support him? We thought insulting people was supposed to be a no-no. But maybe it’s just a no-no for Republicans? Regarding small minds, the Deplorables already know who they are. FYI: You, Mika and Joe are among them. Chris Matthews is knocking at the door.


Regarding that Trump tweet that rather unpleasantly exposed Mika’s up-close-and-personal encounter with a plastic surgeon’s scalpel, Rush Limbaugh late this week added some surprising context and background to the ongoing “Morning Joe” media brouhaha by exposing Joe’s and Mika’s sense of privilege and entitlement. We’ve excerpted this story due to its length, but you can read the whole transcript via our link above to Rush’s site.

Rush Limbaugh:

“So five years ago… I’m sitting here minding my own business, and I get a note that Mika Brzezinski and Scarborough are in town. There’s something going on in town that they’re here, they’re here making an appearance… I think it was at The Breakers. And they asked to come by.

“I met Scarborough a long, long time ago. He was a member of the freshman class [in Newt Gingrich’s House of Representatives] in 1994. I had never met Mika Brzezinski …

“… I ended up giving each of them an engraved EIB [Excellence in Broadcasting] iPad … And they were thrilled, they were happy, and they walked out of here with them after about an hour. And Mika even used her EIB iPad on MSNBC. I have a picture of her using it, showing, flashing it. It was about three weeks later that they started trashing me like I have never been trashed. I don’t even remember what about.”

Now, things get more interesting:

“Kathryn [Limbaugh’s wife] and I had dinner at the White House on March 23rd … It was the night before what was going to be the first vote in the House on repealing Obamacare. It did not happen … At dinner, I don’t know how it came up, he asked me if I knew Scarborough and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ve met him.’

“He said, ‘Those two are weird.’ And I just sat there. He said, ‘Yeah, New Year’s Eve, they call, they begged to come to Mar-a-Lago. They want to be around me. They come to Mar-a-Lago. I said, “I gotta let ’em in, I’m president-elect, they want to come. I didn’t want them there, but they wanted to come. And they hang out for all three days, and I kind of felt obligated to have ’em.” I read [Trump’s] tweet today [June 29, 2017], and apparently he’s been bugged by that ever since it happened. I mean, just told me, told us out of the blue about it.’”

Comment: Put two and two together and you get a pretty damning picture, not of El Rushbo or The Donald, but of Mika and Joe. In addition to being presumptious when it comes to others’ time and hospitality, they are freeloaders. They got free iPads from Limbaugh and three free nights at Trump’s posh Florida resort. But first thing they do after getting the iPads is start regularly trashing Limbaugh on their show. Likewise, first thing they do after enjoying a luxurious free stay at Trump’s posh Florida digs is launch a nonstop public trashing of now-President Trump.

Worse, on recent “Morning Joe” shows, Brzezinski has taken to “psychoanalyzing” the President. Without benefit of an appropriate degree, BTW. Is this a thinly disguised attempt to assist a legally ignorant cadre of lunatic House Democrats to gin up a way to impeach Trump on psychological grounds via the 25th Amendment? (Note: Bold type above via Legal Insurrection.)

Small wonder the President finally decided to hit both Mika and Joe with a roundhouse punch via Twitter. Frankly, it was well deserved, if a bit raw. But at this point, who cares? Let’s remember, the recently-retired Smartest President We’ve Ever Had once advised his followers to punch their opponents back “twice as hard.” Trump punches back even harder. The Deplorables love it. The media (and RINO Republicans) hate it. We’re with the Deplorables.

RINO and #NeverTrump Republicans had better wake up. Supporting their President is the best way to ensure Republican majorities in 2018 and beyond. But, like the dullards in the media, they refuse to see the picture. If they persist, they will pay for it in 2018.


Speaking of the media—specifically the trolls that own and operate CNN—Project Veritas continues to dump more footage that clearly demonstrates this failing network’s utter contempt for its audience and Republicans in general. Their actions and reactions leave zero doubt that CNN is an entertainment network for leftists, and not a news outlet at all.

In case you haven’t see the latest video, here it comes. It clocks in at slightly over 9 minutes if you want to see the whole thing:

Comment: This video speaks for itself. After seeing it, you’ll know all you need to know about Fake News and the depraved mental lightweights that create it.


While we’re on the subject of Fake News, let us recommend the following excellent article at The Daily Caller:

All The Fake News That’s Fit To Print: Media Missteps In The Trump Era

Comment: Click the headline, and you’ll see just how deep the lies and dishonesty go in once-respected media outfits in great detail. It’s they, not us, who are truly deplorable.


Continuing on our Fake News roll, let’s move on to Mark Dice, whose videos, arguably, are beginning to attract more eyeballs than CNN. (Or at least Mark says they are.) Dice’s relentlessly negative and troll-written Wikipedia entry trashes him as a conspiracy theorist, which, at least in a past life, he may have been. But lately, Mark has become one of our YouTube faves by making a laughingstock not only of the Lamestream Media, but also the Soros-paid thugs who routinely attack businesses and physically assault anyone they don’t like. Mainly Deplorables.

One of Mark’s latest videos puts out-of-control Trump-hater Kate Bolduan (whoever she is) in (trigger warning) his satirical crosshairs. Caption:

“CNN’s Kate Bolduan starts yelling and pointing her finger in the face of a panelist who doubts the ‘anonymous sources’ the mainstream media keeps citing about evidence Trump and the Russians working together to steal the 2016 Presidential Election…”

Hilarity ensues.

Comment: Bolduan does everything but froth at the mouth here. Like her colleagues, she’s drunk the Kool-Aid. What’s left of her brain is now out of reach for anyone who still believes in reason. I have learned over time that you can’t argue with these people. They simply can’t converse, and apparently believe that logic is a nefarious tool of the male patriarchy. They have memorized their scripts and know all the answers. You just have to walk away from them. They are permanently defined and permanently impaired by their invincible ignorance. They are an utter waste of time.

Stay tuned. We have more good stuff for you here.
