Hey Donald, Hillary Is 'Phoning It In' At Morning Joe!

Didn't that used to be YOUR gig, Donald?

At this point, Hillary Clinton is just trolling Donald Trump. She phoned in an interview with Morning Joe? Really?

That doesn't make it right from a journalistic standpoint. I still believe that phoned in interviews are unacceptable journalism.

But since Joe and Mika aren't journalists, obviously....and they and other outlets interviewed by phone that Trump guy many many times during the primaries....

This is just plain trolling. And very funny from that standpoint.

This gives me an opportunity to highlight Jeet Heer's article in the Atlantic from this morning. "In Her Alt-Right Speech, Hillary Gave the GOP a Mafia Kiss":

To put it another way, Clinton is trying to heighten the contradictions in the Republican Party by making it clear that there is a stark choice: Either you are with Trump (and everything he stands for) or with me. As it happens, framing the decision in this way puts McCain and Ryan in an impossible spot, since they can’t win without Trump’s base even though Trump is also an anchor pulling them down.

The praise she doled out to Republican politicians may seem magnanimous, but it was also designed to make their lives a hell, since it drives a wedge between Trump’s white nationalist base and suburban college-educated Republicans. It might look like Clinton is kissing the Republican leadership, but as she heads towards victory in the fall she’s also giving them the kiss of death.

She's full of shade these days and it's delicious.
