The madness of millionaire Morning Joe!

Donald J. Trump seeks gay sex:
Yesterday morning, we watched one of the strangest Morning Joe programs yet.

Inevitably, the strangeness involved Mika Brzezinski, who should be a political analyst in roughly the same way we should be running the Bolshoi Ballet.

Mika's conduct was so strange that we weren't sure we had heard what we thought we'd heard. As it turned out, we had heard what we thought we'd heard. To wit:

Mika seemed to be speculating that Donald J. Trump and Billy Bush had enjoyed some sort of "manroll in the hay" during the famous bus ride which produced the Access Hollywood tape.

More specifically, Mika seems to say that Trump made some sort of sexual play for Bush during that famous bus ride. As she vowed to say this, then did say it, Joe kept trying to make her stop.

Below, we'll link you to the pair of tapes in question. Perhaps for obvious reasons, Morning Joe's producers didn't post the second tape, where Mika finally spouted. The Washington Free Beacon did.

The background goes like this:

On the first tape, Mika starts to say that she's going to share her theory about what really happened on the bus ride which produced the Access Hollywood tape. Scoldingly, in apparent exasperation, Joe keeps telling her that she isn't going to do that.

Mika keeps saying she will. Starting at 6:19 AM, the semi-lunatic dialogue goes like this, absent some over-talking:
MIKA (11/27/17): Still ahead on Morning Joe, President Trump reportedly suggests the Access Hollywood tape is not authentic.

Of course he does. He's already apologized for it!

We're going to dig into that, and I have my own take.

I know what happened on that tape, and I'm going to tell you. Because it's not what you think.


JOE: He apologized?

MIKA: He did.

JOE: But he says it's fake now?

MIKA. He says it's fake. Well, I'll tell you, there is something that has been massively misunderstood about it.

JOE: No, you can't. You can't say that on TV.

MIKA: Yes, I can. And I'm going to.

JOE: No, you can't. No, you're not.

MIKA: I am! Listen very carefully, because I want everybody to listen to it. And then you're going to hear what I hear.

JOE: Mika's not going to—

MIKA: I am.

JOE: It's a theory.

MIKA: No. It is a theory. And since theories are apparently on Maga Pig website true, I'm going to put mine out there.
At this point, John Heilemann tries to change the subject, but Mika persists.

"I'm 100 percent right, by the way. I'm always right about these things," she weirdly says. As Joe continues talking over her, she then says this, apparently correctly:

"I'm scaring Joe."

After a commercial break, the next segment starts. Sure enough, Mika does share her peculiar "theory" about what happened on the bus that day:

She seems to say that Donald J. Trump made some sort of sex play for Billy Bush. You can watch that second videotape at this Free Beacon post. Mika's theory comes near the 2:45 mark, as Joe tries to make her stop.

Mika has always been very strange. Beyond that, wealth and fame can be very destructive.

Is Mika completely losing it? Over the past twenty years, it has been stunning to see how crazy behavior has taken place right on TV, in plain sight, as our corporate "cable news" culture has started devouring the nation.

(All the obedient liberal careerists know they mustn't mention such things, except when the craziness can be seen on Fox.)

Even for her, Mika has been very strange in the past two days. On yesterday's tape, you can hear her offer her crazy, unexplained theory about Donald J. Trump's "misunderstood" play for Billy Bush.

Mika says Trump's play for Bush has been massively misunderstood. Joe tried and tried, then tried again, to dear God make her stop.

  1. Strange to see someone spend such a large portion of his time analyzing the intricacies of such "clownish entertainment" as Morning Joe. What are we talking, 5,6 hours here? More? Presumably Somerby had to sit through some not inconsiderable chunk of the show to find Mika's troubling behavior, then locate the transcript (or type it up), provide links, devote psychic energy to its philosophical implications, and invite us readers to indulge in the ludicrousness ourselves (thanks,but no).
    Might there be something more worthwhile out there? No? OK then.

    1. Same could be said of you in replying to this blog.

      Nothing better to do?
      Glass house much?

    2. Heavens!!

      There is a tiny blog spending time documenting the continuing excesses of a widely-watched political television program?

      What *shall* we tell the children?

    4. I think it's a fascinating and important topic, how dysfunctional and truly bizarre our corporate news media has become.

      Me too. It's like it's still the 1980s.

    6. > “... then locate the transcript...”

      Unlike the Rachel Maddow Show and the Last Word, no transcripts are posted at the site for Morning Joe.

  2. Mika is a clueless, self absorbed weirdo.

  3. Trump's obsessive male posturing is so over the top that it takes no imagination whatsoever to suspect he is covering up for either gay tendencies or sexual inadequacy. Men won't go there but women frequently do. Mika could be 100% correct and no man will be willing to talk about Trump's sexual problems (e.g., things Trump won't admit, perhaps even to himself). I think this is grounded speculation. That men won't speculate this way isn't Mika's weirdness -- it is all on the guys.

    1. No, I think Mika merely had nothing meaningful or substantive to add to the discussion. Motivated by desperation and a need for attention, the notion "Trump is gay" randomly appeared in her vacuous mind, not unlike a lone tumbleweed blowing down a barren, untraveled corridor.

    2. Everyone knows Trump is gay. Gayest of the gay. Someone just called me this morning to tell me how much Trump is gay. The gayest. The only ones who say he isn't are "fake news".

      Gaslighting isn't just for one tribe anymore.

    3. "her vacuous mind"
      It must be fashionable ( and oh-so intellectually superior) to hurl insults a la Bob Somerby.

  4. I'm looking for a few bugs in my post. But I think I should have someone look and point out it.
