During Friday’s episode of “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough shamelessly gushed over President Joe Biden, who he described as a “popular president” who “is presenting popular policy proposals.”
Scarborough said this in response to a poll that claimed that more Americans believe we are on the right track as a nation at the moment.
Scarborough Brags About Biden
“It’s interesting — we have a popular president who appears to be personally liked, who is presenting popular policy proposals,” Scarborough said of the polling.
“And you have, I think for the first time, around half of Americans — first time in a long time — around half of Americans believing this country is headed in the right direction,” he added. “I wouldn’t say we’ve re-entered an Era of Good Feelings, but this is something that we as a country have not seen in a very long time.”
“No, we haven’t, and really for good reason,” The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson said in response. “For a long time, we were not headed in the right direction. But Americans increasingly think we are.”
“What fascinates me is how popular his specific policies are in that polling, especially the infrastructure bill and his tax proposals and the fact that the Republican Party, which still has a lot of power, certainly the power to say ‘no,’ just refuses to even acknowledge those numbers, much less grapple with them,” he continued.
Scarborough Confronts Maloney
During this same episode, Scarborough confronted Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, about the left’s preparations for the 2022 midterm elections. Scarborough became frustrated after asking Maloney if Democrats were prepared for GOP attacks on policing and cancel culture.

“I’ll tell you why I’m repeating it — because you all did such a damn poor job of answering that, such a poor job of answering socialism questions, such a poor job about answering ‘cancel culture’ questions,” he said.
“That’s why I’m repeating it because if you believe that Kevin McCarthy should be Speaker of the House, keep pretending that none of that happened, and keep saying that the House did a good job in 2020 because they did not,” Scarborough continued. “House Democrats did a poor job. So my question is are you going into 2022 with eyes wide open?”
