View Diary: Joe Scarborough just told a bare-faced LIE! (133 comments)

  •  Scarborough is an emotionally abusive man (12+ / 0-)

    Scarborough is a bully and it's not only obvious with Mika, it's obvious whenever any of his guests try to disagree with him.  He's using an Imus schtick and it works--but only up to a point.

    I don't really like Harold Ford or Donny Deutsch, but just watch his bullying interactions with them if you want to cringe.

    When these Scarborough and Imus types are younger men, they can hide their emotional abuse under a certain weird kind of charm and charisma and yes, by inspiring fear.  

    It's a cool kid aura that's even old and tired in middle school, where it is most prevalent.  As these emotionally abusive men get older, fewer and fewer people are willing to put up with their bull.

    I hope that MSNBC and the other "kool kids" Joe attracts will recognize this.  They were eventually forced to do so with Imus, sooner or later I hope it will be time for Joe as well.

    •  I don't think Joe was ever cool. (6+ / 0-)

      I can't even imagine any Republican being cool. And Mr. hip hop coke snorter doesn't make the cut either.

      Cool is honest and authentic. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are cool. John Stewart is cool. Bullys aren't cool.

      Joe's funny looking and mean. Harold and Donny are props. Even Eugene Robinson and Jonathan Capehart act like suck ups on MJ.

        I meant the term as urban dictionary defines it--the #1 definition, in part:

        That twat everyone wanted to murder in school due to his/her massively inflated ego, self-obsessiveness and downright sadism....Murderer of self-worth, dignity, individualism and everything a modern society professes to stand for, yet promoted in the media and society in general as a great role model.
        http://www.urbandictionary.com/...

        I'd take out the references to "murdering" and substitute "avoid like the plague," for the first one and "destroyer" for the second one, but other than that I don't have much of a quibble.
