100 thoughts on “Joe: Nothing Wrong With Some Self-Deprecating Humor | Morning Joe | MSNBC

  1. While liberals are policing language, the republicans are winning. This was the fakest thing I’ve ever heard. Liberals are so dumb it hurts

  2. This nonsense political correctness will get Donald J Trump re-elected again in 2020.
    Liberals are losing average people like me, due to their obsessive policing of language.
    BE REAL, not fake.

  3. It’s so refreshing to hear from a thoughful man for a change. I can’t believe how critical people were because Beto took time off to think about his future. That’s a sign of good mental health – not white privilege. To even realize that maybe he didn’t do as much work as his wife in raising his kids, that’s a good step.

  4. She can't shut him up even as he puts his foot in his mouth. Yeah, we know, Joe. We know. That mirror's shiny today, aint it?

  5. Jon Meacham is the only adult in the room and manages, by injecting some reason into the conversation, manages to get control of the children .

  6. Joe should consider the possibility that Beto O'Rourke feels truly humbled by his wife.

    Remember, 'humility' 'humiliation'.

    This is not self-deprecating humor, this is a heartfelt acknowledgement of his utter devotion to his wife.

    Chicks dig it.

  7. It is the basis of British humour. If you don’t want to understand such humour, look elsewhere for Charlie Chaplin, Stanley Laurel, and other great comics you seemed to adopt.

  8. Joe doesn't get it. Remember which party he is from. he's doing well by sloughing off that skin, Trump pushed him to it, but he was a reptile once.

  9. I'd rather have a self-reflective, intellectually curious nerd for a president than a traitorous bloated windbag like trump

  10. I imagine saying that I wish I had a partner that looked at me like Mika looks at Joe when he goes on, but I do, and I am so grateful. Thank you both for sharing your love and your intelligence and your righteousness every day.

  11. Great to see viewers so smart they can listen to a person for 5 minutes and know everything about them. Great to see the only thing some people expect is perfection.

  12. Joe, I enjoyed your diatribe. Others should listen to what you are saying. You are correct. Trump never apologizes for anything. Republicans never apologize. These kinds of apologies make Democrats looks like wimps. There are times to apologize, when something you say is really hurtful. But if he's going to go around apologizing for anything people criticize his for, and he becomes the nominee, Trump and the crazies will destroy him…

  13. The democrats of which I’m one should fight fire with fire. This time I think Joe has a point. Everybody has a past probably not as bad as Trump’s so don’t apologize. We all made mistakes when young. It’s part of growing up!

  14. This repulsive little beta makes me want to vomit. Apologizing for being white, apologizing for not taking care of his children. You know this little submissive is not making any of the decisions in his election campaign.

  15. Mika’s last comment regarding the media attention the new candidates are getting is the only redeemable part of this segment. I thought Joe had a valid point until he went on and on and on and on. Now it just makes me wonder what Joe did as a teenager that has him defending teen behavior so vehemently. Plus, there’s normal embarrassing teen behavior and then there’s sociopathic teen behavior that can be indicative of future of worsening behavior, such as allegedly assaulting other teens, that we should be made aware of.

  16. Joe, can't you see your own serious inability to listen to anyone else, especially the females in your life? You have a serious emotional problem. When the men on your panel speak, you tend to actually listen, but when Mika tries to say something, her presence and voice, especially at the beginning of this presentation, were dismissed as unworthy of being heard. The selfish nature of your rant overshadowed the content of what you were trying share (well, "share" is too generous a word here). You can do better than this, sir. Watch some of your own previous shows and have someone there to coach you in realizing how you are acting toward others. Improve. Become more sensitive. You have the intelligence and heart to do so, and our nation needs a more measured and thoughtful Joe.

  17. I recall a day when I wanted to hear what Joe S had to say…… He and Barnacle are a broken record every single freagin' day…. its downtrodden garbage ~ baffling really how far the fall is going.

  18. Beto was the one that closed down the tornillo kids jail outside El Paso. 6 years in Congress introducing 65 bills, one major for border security. Stands for vets access to mental healthcare. Fought to protect Ranchers lands. Remember Obama and Trump did not know $hit and Clinton was suppose to be most experience and qualified and LOST. VOTE BETO!!!!

  19. Where I live I see lots of dads taking their kids to the park first thing in the morning while mothers go to work. We ain't living in 1956 and my own mother told me Leave It to Beaver was a complete fiction

  20. I can see why Joe is exasperated as this whole ridiculous white man privilege thingo and sexism when every politician in history has found less hours at home makies it unnecessary for him to apologise. Its just a sign of our times . Poor Beto the fact remains he is the one guy who can reach the man in the street.

  21. Yea, I agree Joe… You and Mika are self-deprecating every day. You make everyone else sick too. I guess that's funny to you…

  22. Morning Joe: Monica Lewinsky ‘Bill Clinton didn’t have to change his name’ as reported
    By Quentin Fottrell
    Published: Mar 18, 2019 4:50 pm ET Staind blue dress 👗 Monica Lewinsky is incorrect! Bill Clinton had to change his name to "Cigar" William the 1st black POTUS 💃😲

  23. Well said Joe, after drumpfs example, nobody need apologize ever again. Grow a pair Dems, or the man tan nutjob will run over you. Its time to stand and fight dirty.

  24. Why does Scarborough continually talk across Mika? He clearly thinks she has nothing of import to say – ever? He's a rude windbag who should shut up and give the floor to the rest of the panel who are invariably more insightful, original and articulate than he is. His impatience with her and his disrespect for her is obvious. He should, perhaps, swap notes with Trump. They could write a self- help entitled ’Removing Family from the Workplace.' Or maybe Scarborough and Trump should simply resign themselves.

  25. We live in such a politically correct America. Do not joke about anything. Do not say anything that is not strictly listed about politically correct statements by the progressive trolls. Lest you be condemned. What a joke!
    Progressive purity be damned! All of us need to stand up to the real menace to our country, the Republican Party!

  26. Polls show the most critical issue is country division, hate and anti-immigration. Beto #1 stand is to eliminate this and start get to RED and BLUE to respect one another. Follow him and listen to one of his speeches, you will clearly see his message and plan. VOTE BETO!!!!!!

  27. I parcially agree with everyone's open discussions on Morning Joe. If Kavanaugh lied during his confirmation hearings, there should be a full investigation to obtain the truth about his alleged lies. Joe , most people within our nation care about getting at the real truth concerning the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. Democratic congressional members has vowed to reopen an investigation into the Kavanaugh hearings whenever they obtain majority in the House and Senate. I'm sure most people within our nation are looking forward to the real truth from a reopened final completed investigation of Kavanaugh. The American people should start stocking up on their popcorn. It's extremely possible that Kavanaugh could historically be the first seated Supreme Court Justice to loose his seat based on possible alleged lies during his previous congressional confirmation hearings. Democratic congressional members will definitely not pass up the chance to have a new Supreme Court seat open due to probably false testimony statements by Kavanaugh. It's going to be massive mega ratings sweeps for all news networks and social media. WOW.

  28. Enough Beto bashing already. Give us a chance to hear what he and the other candidates have to say along the way, so we can make up our own minds.

  29. That was super annoying, but Joe has a point. People, get a grip. Since when has it been a crime to self deprecate yourself to elevate someone else. And goodness, if I'm judged as an adult for the sins of my youth; well, I'm thankful none of you are God.

  30. The fact that the ENTIRE segment was Joe talking over Mika, ignoring her, telling her not to talk, and interrupting her says everything about this segment.

  31. thats why its called " Morning Joe" & not "Mornings with Mika" … for fux sake … Joe is the biggest Blowhard ever SURPRISE!!!…. not.
    Wait … was Joe ever a politician….??

    How could we tell…

  32. What does having white privilege have to do with his sexist remark? I really like Beto, but if he is going to react to being called out on something by deflecting to another topic, that is an issue. And to top it off throwing out a self-deprecating popular buzzword like white privilege (not saying this fact is not true or important) to distract from the issue at hand – which is his sexist remark. That is called "gaslighting" the public. It is tricking those who don't see through it and insulting to those that do.

  33. I agree with Joe. This was good for Beto to hear for dealing with Trump. I usually hate when Joe dominates the conversation but this was a relevant, useful and Hilarious rant.

  34. I can’t believe my maid just slipped and hit her head on a desk and went dead. Joe any thoughts what I should do? ( yeah Lefty’s that’s how his young intern died. No way he’d ever cheat on a spouse sooo. ) 🤔

  35. Well seems like the corporate media is pushing Beto hard, raised like 6 million from all the corporate super pacs, welcome to Republican Light again, 2016 all over again, i'd rather vote for the green party, MSNBC is now becoming fox news with a disguise.

  36. Beto was probably just trying to write in the style of Stephen King or some other favorite author when he wrote a shocking story at 16.

  37. Republican Morning Joke is a way for MSNBC to get the retired white folk crowd to watch the channel. Everyone else is working keeping the economy moving. Baptist Morning Joe, sure likes to talk over HIS wifey 'Meeeka' F–k you MSNBC for putting this gass bag on TV for millions of dollars. Any facts or information on this show makes for really weak tea and the rest is a whole lotta turd.

  38. That feigned outrage and smug? juvenile mockery of Beto is just Joe’s repressed guilt talking for having an affair with Mika while they were both still married to other people. STFU joe u look ridiculous

  39. COLLUSION: To act together, often in secret, to achieve an illegal or improper purpose. Sounds like Dems and the Fake News Media to me.
