Joe Scarborough-Donald Trump friendship increasing source of discomfort at NBC

The whole article is worth a read! http://money.cnn.com/2016/02/12/media/joe-scarborough-donald-trump-nbc/index.html

"I've actually called him up and said, 'Donald, listen, you need to speak in complete sentences at debates," Scarborough said. "After the second debate ... I walked into his office, I said, 'Donald, do you know how to read? ... I said, 'You should read before a debate! ... Read a paragraph on Syria, read a paragraph on education reform!'"

The anecdotes, which were meant as a testament to Trump's off-the-cuff political savvy, drew laughter from the audience. But today, at NBCUniversal's headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Center, Scarborough's relationship with the Republican presidential frontrunner has become a subject of frustration among staff, and an increasingly problematic issue for the network's top brass.

Four of those sources also said that the growing media scrutiny over the two men's relationship has caused the network's leadership to more closely monitor Scarborough's comments. "The higher-ups are definitely aware about what's going on," said another person within MSNBC. "It's an issue."

Both Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski are close friends with Trump and members of his family. Scarborough, a former four-term congressman from Florida's 1st district, has often stayed at Trump's Mar-A-Lago Club, in Palm Beach, Florida, with his family and was there during the week between Christmas and New Year's, two sources at the hotel during that time said.

(Donald also spent Christmas in Florida at Mar-A-Lago, presumably with Joe.)

Snyder Admin Trucked In Clean Water for State Building in January 2015

Source: Progress Michigan

LANSING — The Snyder administration quietly trucked in water to state buildings in January of 2015 – ten months prior to Governor Snyder publicly admitting there was reason for concern in Flint, according to a document obtained by Progress Michigan.

The document is a Facility Notification sent by the Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) in response to poor water quality in Flint. The notification stated that water coolers were being installed on each occupied floor next to the drinking fountains so that state workers could choose to continue to drink Flint water or a safe alternative.

“It appears the state wasn’t as slow as we first thought in responding the Flint Water Crisis. Sadly, the only response was to protect the Snyder administration from future liability and not to protect the children of Flint from lead poisoning,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “While residents were being told to relax and not worry about the water, the Snyder administration was taking steps to limit exposure in its own building.”


“Another day and another example of the Snyder administration’s lackluster response to this crisis. Worse yet, this shows that the response was not only late and so far ineffective, but it was also unequal,” Scott continued. “Governor Snyder needs to explain to the people of Flint why his administration trucked water into a state building while allowing residents to drink unsafe water.”

Joe Scarborough open to being Trump's VP!

Hugh Hewitt says it's a good idea because 1) Trump needs to win Florida and that is Joe's ground, 2) Media savvy, and 3) Gets along with well and understands media. Joe says he will do "just about anything to get the WH back"

Good luck with that intern problem...and the two failed marriages and cheating rumors in both...and the rumors about him and Mika...and all the dumb stuff he's said on Morning Joe, and the distinct way in which he treats women compared to men...

What's with the critcism towards Nikki Haley's appearance?

Everyone has different faces, different teeth, and that effects how our faces look when we talk. Is the best we can do is criticize a woman for her (totally normal) appearance?
