Morning Joe Fight: Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski Clash on Women, Chauvinism

Jan 10, 2013 Full story: News Max

While debating the role women play in President Barack Obama's administration, MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski called the behavior of on-air partner Joe Scarborough "chauvinistic," leading to a tempestuous rebuttal that indicted so-called progressives for being hypocritical.

Someone really needs to have a talk with Scarborough. He never shuts up. Regardless of what was being said, he never allows Mika to finish her comments or just talks through her. He just continues to talk to others as she is clearly trying to make a point. It is condescending and rude.

In all honesty, the show is better when he is not on it. He tends to be a big blow hard that sounds more like someone you would see on Fox News.

His attitude is so bad so often, that I have to turn the show off.

It may be titled Morning "Joe" but someone needs to tell him it is not the Joe Show!

Thank you,

How can Joe act shocked that Mika finally called him out on his ongoing chauvinism? He has been bullying and belittling her for years, talking down to her and trivializing her viewpoints. His locker room innuendos, under-his-breath put downs, and loud mouth tirades that drown her out are the definition of chauvinism. Could it be that Joe is afraid Mika may come off as being more intelligent if she is given an opportunity to be heard?

The show would be so much better if Joe didn't have to play the dumb Jock to impress his buddies at the expense of his smarter, more likable, female companion. Please Joe, shut the hell up and let Mika finish a thought once in a while.

Scarborough plays the world's oldest living frat boy. He is petty, overbearing, and immature, and his ego dictates the course of the show ALWAYS.
