MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan has taken some flack lately for airing footage on his show "Morning Meeting" of contributor Jonathan Capehart scarfing down a bagel during a break between appearances.
And my question to you is do you have cameras in the bathroom, or in the dressing room? Because if you wanted to make a fool out of someone...
you could use yourself because it really pissed me off.
Judging by his reaction, Capehart was not prepared for his mother to use the phrase "pissed me off," which she immediately apologized for, unsure if she was allowed to say it on live TV.
Did your good friend blind governor David Paterson pick out those pants? Between Chris Matthews never ever letting Capehart finish a sentence to "that geeky little kid from New Jersey who had a giant head and enormous glasses to match" so we can only assume that he is just used to all this bullying by the asshole-ish alpha males who make up almost the entirety of MSNBC's lineup.
Let's all laugh at him for wearing fancy pants!
Over the past 24 hours, a flurry of scandal has unfolded involving MSNBC contributor, Washington Post opinion columnist and prolific Clinton supporter Jonathan Capehart.Writing an opinion piece for the Washington Post, Capehart sought to sling mud at Bernie Sanders — Swiftboat-style — in questioning Bernie Sanders’ past achievements in fighting for civil rights on behalf of African-American communities in the 1960s.(This, itself, isn’t even an original idea, as Capehart was simply jumping on the Establishment’s anti-Sander claims, which continue time after time to be disproved or found to be outright lies.(Here, here, here and here — in case you’d like some background reading.) But that is not the central thesis of this story.Instead, let’s look a little more closely at Jonathan Capehart himself, and the flurry of lies and misdirections for which he is quickly becoming known.Capehart, who currently offers his opinions to readers of the Washington Post and viewers on MSNBC, has spent the past five years in a long-term relationship with Nicholas Schmit IV, a long-term Clinton aide.
