On Friday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough reacted to Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, saying it may have been exactly what millions of middle Americans had been waiting to hear.
“It’s not the speech I would have given. It’s not the speech any of us would have given, it just may be the speech that millions and millions of people have been waiting to hear for a very long time. You have been talking about how people are scared for years. They are scared because their 401K is disappearing. They are scared because they are not doing as well as their parents did. You have been talking about how he delivered a message for an America that is not that scared. I don’t think we are scared because economically we are okay. You know a lot of people in middle America are scared. Doesn’t that message play to them?” Scarborough asked.

Warning, sensitive MSNBC viewers may want to look away. That’s essentially what Rachel Maddow told liberal watchers on Wednesday night before showing a picture of anti-Hillary Clinton buttons at the Republican convention. Considering the hateful rhetoric that’s come out of MSNBC for years, perhaps that viewer warning should have appeared in the past.
The buttons included ones that read “Hillary for prison” and “Vote no to Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2016.” Maddow informed viewers, “You may find it uncomfortable. And so, you may not want to look at this stuff. But these are some of the pins that are being sold at the venue.”
Maddow continued, “But from calling Hillary Clinton a bitch, to the KFC special referring to her breasts and thighs and left-wing and all of those other things. That’s part of the merchandise of the RNC.”
Certainly, using bad language towards people in public life or making vulgar comments is inappropriate. But that’s never stopped the journalists on MSNBC. Former network anchor Martin Bashir in 2013 wished that someone would defecate and urinate on Sarah Palin.
In 2008, then-anchor Keith Olbermann accused George W. Bush of “murderous deceit” and told the Republican to “shut the hell up.” In 2016, Chris Matthews slimed that Ted Cruz “operates below the level of human life.”
