MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough once again proved he is the epitome of the ignorance plaguing modern journalism

Trust in mainstream media has plummeted to a record low in recent years.

Some journalists have taken the hint and moved away from the narrative at the major outlets.

But MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough is doubling down to prove he is the epitome of ignorance.

The Wall Street Journal excoriates Biden over his “slipping” condition

Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal published an article that promised to give Americans an inside look at what is happening in and around the White House. 

The article was titled Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping, and it was based on interviews from 45 different people in Washington.

All those close to Biden point to the same trend—a faltering mental acuity.

The piece boasts that it covered interviews with both “Republicans and Democrats who either participated in meetings with Biden or were briefed on them contemporaneously.” 

But they led with a quote from Speaker McCarthy. 

“I used to meet with him when he was vice president. . .he’s not the same person,” McCarthy said.

Andrew Bates, a White House spokesperson, released a statement condemning the report. 

“It’s a little surprising that The Wall Street Journal thought it was breaking news when congressional republicans told them the same false claims they’ve spouted on Fox News for years. . .”

Unsurprisingly, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough jumped in the ring.

Scarborough says that “there is no comparison” between Biden and McCarthy

Scarborough has been a vocal supporter of Biden for years. 

In March, the fake news journalist took to the air to defend Biden in a rant about how “this version of Biden, intellectually, analytically, is the best Biden ever.” 

And added an “eff you” to anyone who “can’t handle the truth.”

Now, Scarborough is back to defend “the best Biden ever” in response to The Wall Street Journal article. 

Instead of focusing on the Democrats that were interviewed, he zeroed in on McCarthy. 

“I have spent a good bit of time talking to Kevin McCarthy through the years and hours with Biden in 2024. . .[and] there is no comparison,” he wrote.

“Biden is far sharper, more intellectually curious, and far more insightful on global affairs than any House GOP speaker I have met over 30 years,” Scarborough claimed.

But other journalists stepped in to publicly shame the Morning Joe host.

If Biden is so good “behind-the-scenes” then it needs to be filmed

Joe Concha, a Fox News contributor was quick to note Scarborough’s detachment from reality. 

“Democrats who met with Biden privately voiced concerns yesterday about his cognitive decline. Two-thirds of American voters believe Biden’s age and acuity is a major issue in this campaign. Yet. . .” 

The contributing Editor at The Spectator wondered how people can support Biden while he “keeps letting them down because we all have eyes and ears.” 

A columnist at the online news outlet, Townhall, defended McCarthy saying the former Speaker “may not be a genius, but he doesn’t have an intern mortality rate.” 

People are not fooled by Scarborough’s ridiculous claims and it would serve him to just walk away. Even Joh Stewart knows the truth. 

In March, the comedian and political commentator suggested to Democrats that they give up the charade. 

“If you’re telling us behind-the-scenes he’s sharp and full of energy on top of it. . .you should film that,” he said.
