Panicky Morning Joe Crew: Bloomberg Must ‘Get Out’ of Race Now!

By the time the Morning Joe crowd is finished, there might be no one left in the Democrat field! Over the last week, Scarborough & Co. have been urging Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar to drop out. But as of Thursday, Morning Joe‘s got a new target for the get-out treatment: Mike Bloomberg.

Scarborough riffed off a poll showing that, with Bloomberg remaining in the race in Texas, Sanders and Biden are tied. But with Bloomberg gone, Biden would have a commanding lead. Scarborough surmised that the same thing would occur in 20-30 other states.

Donny Deutsch weighed in, saying that Bloomberg would be “an American hero” and a “patriot” if he went full political-seppuku. Deutsch fantasized that in return for Bloomberg going bye-bye, and throwing his support behind the former veep, Biden would make Mike his Secretary of State. Scarborough summed it up: “There is no doubt that if Biden has a big night [in South Carolina], Bloomberg needs to get out of the race immediately.”

The Sanders campaign is already infuriated by what it perceives as unfair treatment at the hands of MSNBC. You can imagine how Morning Joe’s attempt to clear the field for Biden and bring Bernie down will be received in Sanders-world!
