Lately Joe Scarborough and I have not seen eye to eye on much, however both of us, along with the rest of the country apparently, think that the death of Jeffrey Epstein is a tad fishy to say the least.
However Joe has invoked the Russians thus trying to play a blame trump game., however I would like to call his attention to something from his own show from May 16th 2016
You can find the video here
at the 12 minute mark you can find an exchange that I’ve mentioned before, and remember this is in the context of how Donald Trump will answer accusations of impropriety with women pushed by the media Clinton allies. It Goes like this:
“Panelist Donny Deutsch guessed that Trump would have no problem counter-punching with the Epstein connection whenever he was hit for his own behavior with women, as he was last weekend in a piece in the New York Times.
“Here’s the tennis game,” Deutsch said. “Donald Trump kissed a woman in a bathing suit. Trump hits back: Tell me about the president’s relationship with a guy named Jeffrey Epstein. That’s your tennis match.” ”
Now watch the video again and you will note several things:
1. Everyone at the table knows what he is talking about
2. Nobody wants to talk about it
but here is the kicker.
NOT A SINGLE PERSON AT THAT ANTI-TRUMP TABLE MAKES THE SLIGHTEST SUGGESTION THAT HE TRUMP WOULD HAVE ANY REASON TO FEAR BRINGING UP EPSTEIN!
I wonder why that might be? I submit and suggest that all those people who knew all about the Epstein story never once heard Trump’s name in connection to what was going on, after all if he had a connection to it they would not think he might play that card would they.
So when you hear the left suggest that Trump wanted Epstein gone because he had something to hide realize that they don’t believe it themselves and that there are likely quite a few of them who know that the suggestion is a lie made up out of the whole cloth.
Update: The MSNBC video no longer works so here it is from another source.
You hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them had you? I mean like actually telling anyone or anything.’ But the plans were on display…’ o n display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.’ `That’s the display department.’ `With a torch.’ `Ah, well the lights had probably gone.’ `So had the stairs.’ `But look you found the notice didn’t you?’ `Yes,’ said Arthur, `yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying “Beware of The Leopard”.’

On Tuesday I led with a piece concerning the hilarity of crying “security” with Anthony Weiner and Huma when Bill Clinton is about to be let back into the white house. In that piece I had a quote from Donny Deutsch
Panelist Donny Deutsch guessed that Trump would have no problem counter-punching with the Epstein connection whenever he was hit for his own behavior with women, as he was last weekend in a piece in the New York Times.
“Here’s the tennis game,” Deutsch said. “Donald Trump kissed a woman in a bathing suit. Trump hits back: Tell me about the president’s relationship with a guy named Jeffrey Epstein. That’s your tennis match.”
In my original piece I had video from the Washington Free Beacon story containing that entire exchange. You might wonder why I didn’t include said video of Deutsch mentioning Jeffery Epstein and see the reaction of the people at the table.
Here is why
If you look at the view count you will see that seven minute clip had over 100,000 views before NBC decided to play copyright police game.
Maybe it’s just me but given how often we see stuff at mediaite et al it seems rather unusual for a news network to make a copyright claim over a clip from a news story that used as “fair use” by another news organization. Could this suggest that NBC wants to keep this clip out of the public view because it might hurt Hillary?
I can see the NBC reaction now: Nonsense, we’re not censoring the clip at all. The seven minute clip IS available IF you
Go to the Morning Joe site
Hit search taking you to the MSNBC search engine
Search for Donald Trump
Narrow the field to Morning Joe
Narrow the field to May 16th 2016
and sit through all the videos till you find the right one.
And skip ahead to the 12 minute mark on that video.
If you do so you CAN find the clip and watch the Morning Joe panel’s reaction to what Donny Deutsch says
So, You’ll have absolutely no problem sharing this clip with people far and wide and giving them a hint about the relationship between Jeffery Epstein and Bill Clinton and how the media views it…provided you are someone like me who
already saw the clip
remembered what show it was on
knew what day it was broadcast
And knew what time segment to look for
As for everyone else NBC says to you: Beware of the Leopard!
Mika you and a group of your progressive friends should simply open up a restaurant, have a starting pay of $15 an hour for all workers and before you can say “franchise fee” Mikaburger franchise will be all over the country resulting not only a living wage for the workers but profit for Mika & her friends that can be used for all kinds of delightful progressive causes.
Seattle’s $15 minimum wage law goes into effect on April 1, 2015. As that date approaches, restaurants across the city are making the financial decision to close shop. The Washington Policy Center writes that “closings have occurred across the city, from Grub in the upscale Queen Anne Hill neighborhood, to Little Uncle in gritty Pioneer Square, to the Boat Street Cafe on Western Avenue near the waterfront.”
Of course, restaurants close for a variety of reasons. But, according to Seattle Magazine, the “impending minimum wage hike to $15 per hour” is playing a “major factor.” That’s not surprising, considering “about 36% of restaurant earnings go to paying labor costs.” Seattle Magazine,
“Washington Restaurant Association’s Anthony Anton puts it this way: “It’s not a political problem; it’s a math problem.”
Now one might think that such news might discourage Mika & people like her but it doesn’t matter if there is snark from Twitchy:
McDonald’s has been experimenting with point of sale automation for taking orders and Applebee’s rolled out smart tablets at tables in multiple locations last year. The latter solution is the most interesting to me because it seems like the easiest for younger consumers to adapt to. Most of the people going out to eat in such places are already familiar with laptops, tablets and smart phones anyway. Having one waiting at the table which takes the place of not only the menu, but the waitress as well, isn’t going to come as much of a shock to the system.
Welcome to the land of $17 dollar cheeseburger. And, as you can figure out fairly quickly, everything else will be more expensive too … which, of course, erodes the purchasing power of that $15 wage. More importantly, if you work for one of those establishments that is closing, your wage is $15 times zero hours, isn’t it?
These naysayers and their math are no match for the combined effects of the power of progressive thinking plus the bonus of a restaurant fronted by a liberal celebrity in a liberal city anxious to prove her right.
So Mika the field has been cleared, go boldly forward and prove us wrong! It should be a cinch.
