(TNS) When more people tune in to watch old cartoons than watch your morning ‘news’ show, you have to do and say outrageously stupid things in order to ‘get noticed.’

Enter Joe Scarborough and wife Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC.

On Monday, Brzezinski actually suggested that the reason why President Donald Trump is pushing anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a possibly effective treatment for coronavirus — you know, the pandemic that has 9/10ths of our country in shutdown mode — because of a “financial tie.”

Meanwhile, her parrot husband kept asking on the show why the president would push “an unproven drug” as a potential cure for a disease that has been successfully treated with it, according to a growing number of doctors.

In reference to an “unscheduled” Sunday coronavirus news conference with the president and members of his task force, Brzezinski then claimed that the president was censoring his chief medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“Dr. Fauci wasn’t allowed to talk about what he feels is important to say about this drug that the president keeps pushing. A lot of people would say, follow the money. There’s got to be some sort of financial tie to someone somewhere that has the president pushing this repeatedly.”

The parrot husband agreed, even going so far as to claim that the drug is ineffective, though he failed to disclose the body of medical experimentation he’d done to prove that statement — or mention the armload of evidence that hydroxychloroquine is actually effective, according to anecdotal evidence, at least.


“We’re in a crisis, and he’s continuing for, what, the third week now, to push an unproven drug,” Scarborough yipped.

“Why is MSNBC, why is CNN, why is FOX, why is any network running these press conferences where he keeps talking about an unproven drug that might work for malaria, might work for Lupus, doesn’t work for this?”

Scarborough then whined that Fauci “wasn’t even allowed” to answer questions or provide his expertise on the efficacy of the malaria drug, while Trump just “likes the good ratings” that the news conferences offer him.

“He wasn’t even allowed to talk,” Brzezinski agreed, in reference to Fauci.

First of all, Fauci has already provided his thoughts on hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment. So that’s a matter of record.

Also, there is the fact that once upon an outbreak, back in 2013, Fauci had no problem backing an experimental, unproven drug combo treatment for MERS. That’s what we in the news business call a ‘news angle’ to pursue, but since these two clowns are stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, we get a clown show full of lunacy and baseless allegations.

Once upon a time, when a news person made such an outrageous, unsubstantiated claim, it cost them their livelihood. My, have times have changed.
