Hilarious: MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski Very Reluctantly Reports About Obama’s Sucky Poll Numbers

This video is a case study in body language for those of you who are Psych majors.

This morning on MSNBC, the Morning Joe gang decided to report some bad news about President Obama. Since we’re not accustomed to hearing any bad news about President Obama from a lamestream media outlet such as MSNBC, we have to admit that we found this (pleasantly) surprising.

The bad news for the President is his latest poll numbers. It fell to Mika Brzezinski, as opposed to MSNBC’s token Republican Joe Scarborough, to actually report about how President Obama is falling in popularity.

“You’ve got a President with really low approval ratings,” Scarborough said to Brzezinski. Even the casual viewer could not miss the smile on his face.

“All right, uhhhh, so,” Brzezinski replied, clearly not wanting to go to this segment of the show. We feel very sorry for the producer that had to talk her into reporting this news.

“Uhhh, these polls show, umm…” Brzezinski continued very unwillingly.

Scarborough’s sentiments could still be seen in his facial expression: Come on Mika, you can do it!

“That his job performance, uh, the economy, far from good news,” she finally managed to get out. “Uh, according to the Bloomberg poll just 47%… uh… have a favorable opinion of the President. Ummm…”

That was as far as she could go, apparently. Scarborough had to take over from that point.

Finally, she was able to resume.

Georgia Rep. John Lewis has called on President Obama to declare martial law in Ferguson, Mo.

The congressman made the public call Thursday afternoon as protesters continue to clash with police in Ferguson after a cop shot and killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown Saturday night. (RELATED: Is This America? Stunning Photos From Violent Protests In Ferguson, Mo.)

“People have a right to protest,” Lewis said on MSNBC. “They have a right to dissent. They have a right to march in an orderly, peaceful, non-violent fashion. And the press has a right to cover it. Ferguson, Mo. is not the Congo. It is not China. It is not Russia. We can do better.”

“President Obama should use the authority of his office to declare martial law,” he continued. “Federalize the Missouri National Guard to protect people as they protest.”

Eight More Things You Didn’t Know Are Racist

The Daily Caller’s Alphabet of Racism is still going strong. Here are eight things beginning with the letter ‘L’ you should know are racist.

Los Angeles police dogs are racist, reported The Independent, after a 2013 report found that since 2004, the number of minority individuals bitten by police dogs had dramatically increased. And in the first six months of 2013, ”every single victim of a bite by a LASD dog was African-American or Latino,” the piece read.

Sarah Palin was blasted by PoliticusUSA when she used the word lackadaisical to describe President Obama’s tendency to lead from behind. “That’s a bit of that lackadaisical eh you know, don’t have to take responsibility,” she said on Fox News last year in reference to the president’s handling of the Edward Snowden debacle. PoliticusUSA called her comments an “ugly racist rant,” because in the 1937 book Class and Caste in a Southern Town a racist person used the term lackadaisical to describe “Negro work habits.”

The film “Lucy” is racist, a Huffington Post writer explained in a rant about women and Hollywood, because it suggests that the most evolved human being is a white woman. “See, I just can’t get right with that,” Olivia Cole wrote, and added, “How is it that in a film whose premise rests on the idea of reimagining the past, present and future, we still end up with a blonde white woman with flashing blue eyes as the stand-in for what personifies evolution and supremely fulfilled human potential?” The answer, of course, is racism.

Singer Lorde is racist, according to the blog Feministing, which points to the lyrics of her hit single “Royals” as evidence. Here are the lyrics at issue:

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
The song is deeply racist, according to Feministing, because “we all know who she’s thinking about” when she mentions gold teeth, Cristal and Maybachs. “So why shit on black folks? Why shit on rappers?” the writer asks, “Why not take to task the bankers and old-money folks who actually have a hand in perpetuating and increasing wealth inequality? I’m gonna take a guess: racism.”

In addition to pretty much every other Disney movie, “Lady and the Tramp” is likely racist. As Buzzfeed reported, the film’s villains are two Siamese cats with “stereotypical Asian speech and slanted eyes.”

The “Lord of the Rings” franchise is racist, the Chicago Tribune reports. Although the piece acknowledges author (Photo: Screenshot/YouTube)J.R.R. Tolkien himself probably meant no offense, it says the representation of race in the films is problematic, because, as usual, Caucasian men are the “good guys” and other races are the “bad guys.” For example, the piece mentions Aragorn’s warning to King Theoden that Saruman is out to “destroy the world of men.” A more accurate statement, the piece says, would have been “the forces of evil have assembled an army ‘to destroy the world of civilized white men.”

In a segment of “PoliticsNation” last year, host Touré informed MSNBC’s small audience that the term “lazy” is one of those racist code words conservatives use to attack President Obama. He and Al Sharpton were discussing a portion of Fox News President Roger Ailes’ biography, in which he suggests Obama is lazy. ”[Roger Ailes is] one of the most powerful voices in the country, and he’s attacking President Obama,” Sharpton complained. Touré then explained why it’s not OK to use the term in reference to black people: “This sort of ‘lazy’ term is something we heard flung at us as black people going back to slavery,” he said, “which, of course, you know, we perceive them as being guilty of not wanting to work. Of course they didn’t want to work. They were slaves.”

“Law and Order” is racist, because it suggested justice should be color-blind, according to the socialist, feminist, anti-racism website Solidarity. In one episode, three black kids steal a baseball bat from three white kids. When the mother of two of the white kids urges them to get their bat back, the white kids pick a fight with the black kids, whose father ends up shooting and killing one of the white kids. In an apparently racist decision that “floored” Solidarity, the court decides the mother and father are both guilty. “Real inequalities of wealth and social power — of race and class — disappear before ‘blind justice’ that sees not black and white, not workers and professionals, but “citizens” who appear as equals in ‘the eyes of the law,’” the piece explains.

NBC’s Chris Jansing On Obama’s Meeting With African Leaders: Good Thing ‘He’s From Kenya’

Capture

By Brian Carey
August 5, 2014
Oops.

NBC’s White House Correspondent Chris Jansing looks, to us, like a female version of Kevin Spacey. In fact, we’ve never seen Chris Jansing and Kevin Spacey in a room together at the same time.

Coincidence?

Anyway, Jansing appeared on MSNBC’s The Reid Report today. That was her first mistake.

Her second mistake was lending some credibility to the long-discredited notion that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya.

Then again, she’s from NBC News, so she probably disabused everybody of the notion that President Obama was born in Kenya by briefly suggesting that it’s true.

Anything reported by NBC News should be treated with a high level of skepticism, after all.

While talking about the White House hopes that Africa will become part of the President’s legacy, Jansing said: “Yeah, the fact that he’s from Kenya, and that fact that when he was elected there were expectations from the African continent that he would do great things for them.”

Well, hellooooo!

He’s from Kenya? Donald Trump will be so pleased to hear that.

And you probably thought that this issue was settled when he produced his birth certificate.

Well, Jansing appeared on air ten minutes later to revise and extend her remarks. She said that she meant to say that Barack Obama’s father was from Kenya and no the President himself.

Then again, she’s from NBC News. So, just like that, we’re giving the birthers more credibility.
