Morning Joe stunned by 'chaotic' Trump presser: 'Everybody's scared to death by what they saw'

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were stunned — and terrified — by what they saw Thursday during President Donald Trump’s bizarre and vapid news conference

“That would have been a really funny hour or so of television if he weren’t president of the United States,” Scarborough said. “It was one of the most chaotic, rambling press conferences anybody has ever seen.” Scarborough said the president seemed “addicted to chaos,” but he marveled at Trump’s most ardent supporters — who liked what they saw during the 77-minute spectacle.

“They were laughing, and they weren’t laughing at Donald Trump — they were laughing at the media,” Scarborough said.

The “Morning Joe” co-hosts and their panelists repeatedly expressed feelings of fear toward what the next four years would hold for the United States and the world.

Let me tell you, it is even more frightening when you read it.

4. No - everyone is NOT scared to death...and that's the problem.



There are a lot of folks, the hard core of Trumpland, who are reveling in his performance. He'll lose the softer edges of his support base, the passive racist misogynists, many of whom were willing to tolerate him vs. their whacked out perception of HRC. He'll lost them.

But his core - the true believers. They are dancing in the streets that we now have a "strongman" in the WH who will stand up to this liberal jerks who have been ruining our country (code for embracing diversity and valuing capability/competence/contribution to society over white male privilege). Those folks, like the two I overheard in a gas station along I71 about halfway up to Columbus - they really do believe "he's showing them".

They may not be a large enough group to have elected him without the collaborators but they are large enough to be a significant risk to democracy as we know it. For them to have a true power base in this country - we are so f'ed.

My prediction - as Trump's need for more and more adoration grows, there will come a day when we will wish for the "good ole days" of yesterday's presser. It will look sane when viewed in the rear view mirror of the next 3 years, 11 months.

7. FUCK YOU, Moaning Ho. . .

YOU and the rancid, fucked up shit you pass off as "news" is responsible for this abortion squatting in the WH. You had no problem whoring yourself in order to go to Mar-a-Lago before the "inauguration." Yeah, we're aware, Moaning Ho, that YOU are a big, fucking liar too. YOU helped to create this monster, and YOU are guilty too.
