Rob Reiner is my new hero. He just schooled Joe Scar & Mika in "HOW TO DO A POLITICAL INTERVIEW."
'Twas a gratifying moment of plain talk and unvarnished truth-telling. Cannot wait for the clip to become available. Classic moment.
Step by step, he forced the squirming and protesting Joe & Mika to watch him doing a "feet-to-the-fire" mock interview with an imaginary Trump.
With follow-up questions--4th and 5th level questions, as Reiner called them--and then the final rapier thrust of conclusion: "I see that you cannot or will not respond. This is unfortunate for the American electorate, who deserve some answers.
Scar and Mika tried constantly to interrupt and deflect his "lesson", but he would NOT be deterred. They tried desperately to justify their pandering, fawning handling of Trump, without success.
THEY GOT PWNED...
to see and absorb this "lesson".
I'll try to find and post the clip.
after two bogus hides in one day.
Silly me, I thought it might be safe to venture into GD-P. WRONG! LOL!
I dared to use the words "snake-oil salesman" and "traitorous" in connection with you-know-who. Anyhow, I'm BAACCCCK! LOL!
You should have seen Scar & his sidekick trying to talk over Reiner, attempting to contradict him and shout him into submission. He would NOT be silenced.
Every time they interrupted him, he would return doggedly to his point. It was a thing of beauty.
Skinner needs to fix this.. not only that.. I have friends who have been on FFR for weeks.. some over a month.. and nothing. Radio Silence.. Just because the roaming alert squad is looking to censor Hill supporters.. we know they do.
Secondly, I love it when anybody can stand up to those motor mouth pundit heads.. wonder if they'll have Rob on their show again?
I did miss you! Welcome back and thank you for reporting on the tv news!
In their last gasp of furious energy, they've become ever more unhinged.
My god, so much vile and venemous language is used to describe Hillary, and it NEVER gets censored.
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS INSANITY TO CEASE!
and think viciouness makes that happen. When in actuality nothing could be further from the truth.
What a mess BS has made of his whole campaign from the top down.
We're so fortunate to have a candidate like Hillary!
They're just an echo chamber all feeding off of each others hopes and dreams. Or they're disrupting RW trolls. We're not going to change anyone's mind, they have totally committed to the fearless leader. I find it more frustrating than rewarding to even try to correct the record when some negative propaganda about HRC is posted as absolute truth. As soon as opposing comments or FACTS are posted to refute the assertions, the post is swarmed by childish taunting and desperate denials without facts.
Against my better judgement I did post there this morning because the OP was just so ridiculous.
So welcome back to the madness. The primaries can't end soon enough.

it on my own volition.
You spoke my mind here:
The childish swarm got me on Monday.
And, yes, I believe that some of the more rabid ones are paid RW operatives, sowing dissension and mutual disgust among Dems.
Thanks for the kindness, Fla Dem...
And then the trotting bat-cat appears with the "I know you are but what am I?" games. Yechhhhh
Sorry to hear they got you
Hopefully the grown ups will be back in charge soon
Had missed "seeing" you lately. This is a good one to lead in with!
The media have enabled Trump every step of the way. It's truly sad when Faux Noise's Megyn Kelly actually ranks higher than most.
trying to "passer la patate chaude" (pass the hot potato), as the French say, now that the fascist Frankenstein monster has come to life, and is within a stone's throw of the Oval Office.
They have been willing accomplices to a lucrative political hijacking. Not one mainstream journalist or commentator did their due diligence or Trump would have been laughed off the stage months ago.
Their rehab of Trump includes denial of racism. And that means old Pat Buchanan is on my tv again. Gross!
a political model for Trump in the GE?
Jeezuschrist on a trailor hitch.
trump must think he has it made with those two tools pimping for him.
But, there's too many youtubes of racist trump for any possibility of rehab.
It blows my mind when people say Trump is actually "quite liberal" or that he's becoming presidential. Are they forgetting all his disgusting racist and sexist remarks and ideas? It's really sad (and telling of the Republican party) that this hasn't already disqualified him from becoming the nominee.
I missed this clip but I saw other parts of Morning Joe this morning. Again, Mika kept insisting that people were underestimating Trump and that he "had some work to do" but that he could very easily win back support...????
FFS! He said Mexicans are RAPISTS, wants to BAN Muslims, said men have to treat women "like shit", said he doesn't want black people handling his money....and that's just a tiny, tiny fraction of all the nasty things he's said! It's insane (and insulting) that people think Trump can "win back" the support of minorities and women after these statements. Do they think we're stupid??
It feels like a bad nightmare...it's pretty unbelievable that this guy is the nominee.
Can You Imagine! and not just what if Hillary said any tiny percentage of the sort of things he says, if ANY Dem did it, they would be dogged to defeat with NO chance of redemption. Because............IOKIYAR...........amen.
it's so illuminating.
Can you imagine...
...if Hillary told Harry Reid she wasn't yet "on board with his agenda" (the way Trump did to Ryan?)
...if Hillary bragged about the size of her genitals on a debate stage?
...if Hillary retweeted anti-Semitic, racist or misandrist Twitter accounts?
...if Hillary said "Bernie's a p--y" at one of her speaking engagements?
...if Hillary had mentioned that her son (if she had one) was so hot she'd date him if she wasn't his mom?
an answer unrelated to the question ask.
He could tell that that lil local station reporter was gonna ask real questions!
He'll parry a question with: "I've said all I'm going to say on that" and the craven interviewer will follow up with: "Thank you for your time, Sen. Sanders."
It's amazing to me that HRC has been asked all the tough questions, year after year, then we get this fascist Trump on the scene and everyone loses their journalistic integrity. Wondering if they ever had any to begin with?
They're friggin' afraid of him. Cowards all.
Don't want to be kicked out of a rally, lose "access" or be treated to his "special" verbal attention.
I wish he would have mentioned how the press refused to cover republican candidates other than trump and did not give Bernie the same coverage as trump had early on especially when Bernie had larger crowds and more support than trump. I would ask them why they give all this press to trump.
They created this monster. They need to be called out on it.
managed to say as much as he did.
The whole Democratic slate was snubbed in favor of the 24/7 Trump entertainment marathon. Clinton, Sanders, O'Malley.
I suspect we will be yelling at the tee vee screens a lot over the coming months. We now have a reality tv campaign whether we like it or not. The low brows are in heaven. Thank you Rob Reiner! And especially, thank you Surya Gayatri and so very glad you are back home after your false arrest. The system is broken in favor of the bullies and I don't know what we would do without our safe haven here; it is making this election bearable. I truly treasure it and posters like you....and upthread as well. You know who you are! (That would be allll of ya!)
all of you fine Clinton supporters.
Your kind words touched me, HD.
When you find yourself unjustly dragged off to solitary confinement, and you're incommunicado for 48 hours, you wonder if anybody here has even noticed! LOL!
Not being able to tell your friends that you are not on a real life vacation but somewhere pacing the floor of a cyber cell. Maybe that can be one of the changes Skinner makes: a list of those on "time out" so we know who has been taken off to the Gulag.
So glad you are back!
At least that way, we would know why a certain poster has just fallen off the radar.
Rob for Hillary's VP!! His comment that if Trump wasn't a celebrity, he would be seen as a lunatic standing on soapbox in a park and people would just pass him by...just perfect...
Joe & Mika: defensive and full of themselves much?!
Thanks for the link! Made my day...
Watching them scramble to cover their asses was almost comical.
I wanted to jump through the screen and give him a big smackeroo when he uttered the "lunatic on a soapbox" line.
I told him he was nuts, he reminded me I thought he was nuts when he told me months ago that the racist idiots in that party would nominate him, so i defer. He said that Trump has used Morning Joe to get the nomination without spending all of his money.
Can you imagine, Joe and Donald? Canada looks better and better and better....
the upheaval of moving in case of a Trump Presidency.
It hadn't occurred to me, but your hypothesis of a VP offer to Scar makes some sense. What else could explain the blatant butt-kissing, unless it's the promise of "Press Secretary"?
and speak the language, which makes things ever so much easier.
It isn't easy to get a "carte de résident permanent" nowadays. It can be done, though, if you own property in France, or if you marry a French person.
I'd say, that for most Americans looking to expatriate, Canada and Mexico are the most obvious options.
Canada has very strict immigration policies and Mexico is incredibly violent.
and it has interest. I'm still weighing my options, but am liquidating.
Joe won't be able to be on his show for six months.
At this time, we should join forces to overcome the usual love fest the corporate media has for T-rump. Corporate media only purpose for lifting this a-hole further up people's arses is only for profit, cha ching. Screw the welfare of the United States of America.
I think HRC coalition will become stronger.
He's rapidly becoming a footnote.
The MSM doesn't give a hot damn who's in office as long as they have "access" to the lucrative corridors of power.
the levers of power and will tell the president how to do their job.
When they ganged up on him. Too bad they got so defensive and didn't respond well but maybe they'll think more about it later.
Reminiscent of Jon Stewart taking on Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala...
No matter how many times they interrupted or talked over him, he swung right back to his narrative.
and Mika are so full of themselves! Remember the joke that the comedian at the WHCD told: "Joe Scarborough has his head so far up Trump's ass, he bumped into Chris Christie."
And, the contrast of his principled stand with the posing and posturing of J & M couldn't be more stark.
They indignant squirming and "we DID ask him" was pretty funny. Then they got kinda shitty with him, but Reiner handled it well.
but they pretty much all are.
The smartest! ...and the only adults in the room!
Just like HER!
