‘Morning Joe’ Hosts Claim Trump Has Taken Republican Party ‘Hostage’ – Liz Cheney Is The ‘Rescuer’

During Wednesday morning’s episode of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski’s obsession with Donald Trump continued when they claimed that the former president had taken the Republican Party “hostage,” and that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is trying to rescue it.

Brzezinski And Scarborough Attack Trump

Brzezinski accused Trump of taking the GOP “hostage” as she reacted to a Wall Street Journal op-ed entitled, “Purging Liz Cheney.”

“Joe, it just goes back to our lead story, and how serious it is — what this judge has said about the Trump presidency, about the Mueller report that the president with the help of the attorney general used the Mueller report to drum up hate, to foment anger, and it all led up to January 6, and by the way, took the Republican Party hostage, and they are choosing to stay there,” she said.

Scarborough then chimed in to attack Republicans, saying, “they’re continuing to lie about the 2020 election when everybody knows they’re lying about the 2020 election.”

After touting what he described as Cheney’s conservative voting record, Scarborough added, “This is madness.”

Michael Steele Weighs In

Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele spoke out to agree with Brzezinski, saying that Republicans don’t want Cheney to rescue the party because they like where they are.

“It’s not like she was this outlier,” Steele said, referring to Cheney. “But, Mika has given us the right image here. Liz Cheney is the rescuer. She’s come, and she’s found the hostages.”

“And she’s saying, ‘Come on. Follow me out of the building. Come on. I’ve got a way,'” he added. “And they’re sitting there going, ‘No, no, no, we want to stay. We like it here. In fact — bad rescuer. Bad person trying to save us from ourselves.’ That’s where we are.”

Cheney Attacks Trump

Calls have grown to remove Cheney from her leadership positions ever since she voted to impeach Trump earlier this year. She recently said that “it’s important” that Trump not run again in 2024.

“I don’t think that that’s going to happen,” Cheney told the Washington Examiner. “And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did.”

While she also said that she “certainly would never vote for a Democrat” and she also stated that she does not think Trump “should be president again.”

  • Here we go with the elitist left party, thinking that Blacks and Republicans do not have a brain - ability to think on their feet. We are not some cult that has been hoaxed. Plain and simple we like Trump, because and voted for him, because he is not like you and leftist politicians or even politicians, period.
    Get Over Yourselves and so happy MSNBC, CNN, etc. are losing viewers. Now maybe we should take it a step further and stop buying their sponsors products. Seems to have worked with CoCa Cola

  • Scarborough is an irrelevant wannabe. He and his partner think if they spew a lot of hate on Trump will magically result in a few ratings points. They re all a part of the democrat deep cult media swamp that burp a message of hate, intolerance, and racism. every single day.

  • Read the dictionary, Joe. "Hostage" is against one's will. "Supporter" is knowingly and willingly supporting. But I get it. If you're the swamp you wouldn't want it to be drained.

  • Given that this guys ratings are doing a deep dive, should be obvious noone really cares what he thinks about anything. No longer relevant!

  • Morning Joe who do you think is going to go with anything Liz says? Are you a cult member of the Sleepy bunch?
