Axios: Biden's Obsessed With "Morning Joe" (and Joe Scarborough Fellates Him On Camera Every Morning)

This is from a few days ago, but I just heard about it from Megyn Kelly.

People attempting to lobby the White House vie to appear on Morning Joe in the 7 o'clock hour, just so they can broadcast their message to one elderly demented easily-mesmerized codger.

When White House aides appear on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," they're often booked between 7 and 7:40 a.m. ET. That's so they'll reach one crucial and loyal viewer: President Biden.

Why it matters: Biden's years-long love of MSNBC's staple morning show affects how the White House runs -- and who Biden listens to.

Zoom in: The president often calls co-host Joe Scarborough -- a former Republican congressman who's now a harsh critic of Donald Trump -- to get Scarborough's take on issues and sometimes vent about media coverage, according to people familiar with the relationship.

During the day, Biden has long asked his staff whether they saw a story, a poll, or a segment that had been on the show. He's included show regulars in off-the-record conversations with policy experts.

Biden pays particular attention to -- and has consulted with -- "Morning Joe" regulars such as longtime reporter Mike Barnicle, foreign policy expert Richard Haass and historian Jon Meacham, who has assisted on several Biden speeches.

Vice President Kamala Harris watches "Morning Joe," too: She and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff hosted a dinner last month at the vice presidential residence for Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, his co-host and wife.

Aides have noted that Harris also tunes into Fox News, and occasionally watches "The Five."

Some aides have felt that Fox News' relentlessly negative coverage -- first casting her as Biden's all-powerful puppeteer, then later portraying her as incompetent -- can drive Harris to distraction.

"It got in her head and caused high anxiety because they were constantly hammering her," one former Harris aide told Axios.

Ummm, they literally never portray her as "Biden's all-powerful puppeteer." They always depict her as incompetent. That's all anyone every depicts her as.

This is absurd. This is like a very ugly woman complaining that sometimes people deride her as ugly, and sometimes deride her as too beautiful to be tolerated.

Um, no. You're inventing invisible people saying made-up things in your head, Fuggles.

Between the lines: Because Biden watches "Morning Joe" so often, most of his top aides watch or track the show to anticipate potential questions from him.

Don't worry, though -- Biden samples a wide spectrum of political commentary every day.

Biden is a big cable news consumer: If "Morning Joe" is his favorite show, his second favorite is probably "Fareed Zakaria GPS" on CNN each Sunday.


Aides say Biden respects these voices on cable TV, and loves when they applaud his actions.

Oh, the old demented men applauds when his TV Friends say nice things about him?

Boy that Trump, what a dangerous narcissist.

Below, Joe Scarborough is determined to preserve his place as Top Presfluencer, absurdly praising Joe Biden every five seconds.
