Panel praises not just McMaster, but Trump for making pick

‘Thank you, Jesus’: Morning Joe’s Chorus of Praise for McMaster Pick

Posted by - 2/21/2017 at 8:30am

Mike Barnicle, of all people, set the tone for the opening segment of today’s Morning Joe, exclaiming “thank you, Jesus” in response to President Trump’s pick of H.R. McMaster to take over from Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser.

The segment was one belated Valentines Day bouquet of praise of McMaster, coming from members of the panel itself as well as in quotes from a bi-partisan array that included several critics of the president, notably including John McCain.

Perhaps even more significant than the accolades for McMaster was the suggestion that his selection reflected well on President Trump himself.

Filmmaker Confirms Numbers on Refugees And Crime in Sweden

Posted by - 2/21/2017 at 7:00am

During his rally in Florida this weekend, Trump brought up the problems some countries in Europe and elsewhere are having with refugees. He singled out Sweden and the left, including many people in media, jumped on it.

It turns out, Trump was basing his claims on a segment from the Tucker Carlson show in which filmmaker Ami Horowitz described a documentary project on the subject. Ami returned to the show last night and after Tucker replayed the clip, Horowitz backed up his project with numbers directly from the Swedish government.

From FOX News:
