During a guest appearance on Tuesday's edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe program, Cokie Roberts -- a political commentator for National Public Radio and ABC News -- hammered people who still support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as “morally tainted” and an example of “textbook racism.”

Roberts said of the approximately 40 percent of American voters who polls say still support Trump: “I mean, there’s just no question about that. You can’t say ‘He’s a racist and what he says is textbook racism, but I support him because he’s the nominee of my party.’”

On Wednesday, the Morning Joe crew erupted over the revelation that notes from Hillary Clinton’s interviews with the FBI are being given to a congressional committee for review. According to guest Adam Schiff, a Democratic Congressman from California who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, this “opens a Pandora’s box of requests from Congress.” Bloomberg Politics Editor, Mark Halperin, believes it is one of the “most horrible precedents” he’s seen in a long time.

A few days after New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg wrote a front-page piece about “[t]he challenge” of remaining objective when covering Donald Trump, he joined MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday morning to claim that despite Trump sucking up much of the media’s attention, the media have been able to aggressively cover Hillary Clinton and her many scandals.

Friday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC saw the latest insults hurled in the direction of conservatives and talk radio as co-host/failed talk radio host Joe Scarborough and liberal historian Jon Meacham blasted “the most extreme voices in talk radio” from the past three decades for having “dumbed...down” the Republican Party and creating conspiracy theorists giving rise to Donald Trump making for a lack of “intellectual content.”

Thursday on Morning Joe, actor and MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch had a lot to say about the media and their relationship with Donald Trump. According to Deutsch, the “higher educated, left leaning” media needed Donald Trump all along…until they didn’t. Co-host Mika Brzezinski pointed out that although they had Trump on their show regularly for months during the primaries, viewers were “getting really tired of him” and their ratings “flat lined.”

The Clinton Foundation is back in the spotlight for their precarious ties to Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, released e-mails suggesting major Clinton foundation donors bought access to the department. While the Clinton campaign insisted “the e-mails don’t relate to the foundation’s work,” email scandals appear to be a perpetual monkey on the back of the Clinton campaign. Thursday on Morning Joe, the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward said what most Americans are thinking: the revelation of Clinton’s e-mails is “a ticking time bomb.”

On Wednesday, the discussion on Morning Joe was dominated by Trump’s Second Amendment comments yesterday as he highlighted the jeopardy the Supreme Court will be in if Hillary Clinton is elected president.

On Friday, Hillary Clinton was uncomfortable when asked about her recent comments in an interview with FNC’s Chris Wallace regarding her statements to the FBI and her private server. Clinton gave a less than eloquent defense of her position that her answers to the FBI were “truthful,” and insisted she might have “short-circuited” or that her and Wallace were “probably talking past each other.” Monday’s Morning Joe crew were not impressed with her answers, as co-host Joe Scarborough described it as “the most tortured response I’ve ever seen.”

Wednesday on Morning Joe, co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski continued to marvel over the “obvious excitement” at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. While the hosts insisted there was no comparison between the DNC and the RNC, they continued to build up the Democrats by knocking down the Republicans. The liberal hosts painted a picture of an “excited” DNC filled with “history” and “emotion,” compared to an RNC laden with “empty seats” and “sleepwalking.”

If you watched Morning Joe on Tuesday, you would think Michelle Obama was the only person who spoke on the first night of the Democratic National Convention. Co-host Mika Brzezinski called the First Lady’s remarks “chilling” while Willie Geist hailed it as “the greatest in the history of conventions.” Co-host Joe Scarborough went so far as to say “her optimism and her hope reminded me of Ronald Reagan.”
