Mika and Schmoe, er, Joe, “titans of journalism.”
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were quick to mock President Trump and Fox News after the midterms about the migrant caravan swarming to the U.S.-Mexico border, sarcastically remarking on Morning Joe that the story was overblown, had no legs, and was essentially an election stunt.
However, there are 7,000-plus migrants now in Tijuana and Mexicali and more than 40 people attempted to breach a hole in the border fence yesterday and another 42 migrants were caught and arrested on U.S. soil….
It’s unlikely that MSNBC’s Mika and Joe will retract their doltish mockery of the caravan story. For the record, here is what these titans of journalism said on Nov. 7, 2018:
Mika Brzezinski: “If we were like Fox and echoed the president’s narrative — what he thinks were the biggest concerns in this country right now, if it were a week ago — maybe we’d be going to a reporter at the border about the caravan making its way into the country.”….
A little later in the segment, Scarborough mockingly remarked, “It’s such nonsense, and Donald Trump ended with that racist campaign. And for everybody there telling me, ‘No, it’s a real story, we’re worried about the caravan, they’re coming, and Trump’s strong enough to – I go back to what I said about Martians coming into my back yard: They’re not coming. The caravan’s not coming. The leporsy’s not coming.”….
