Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughRepeatedly, the taunts rained down on Cruz. “Sit down!” one man said, before a “Clinton-Cruz 2020” sign was raised.'ve never seen anything at a convention like what took place this morning: One after another, Texans berated Cruz

Never seen anything quite like this.
Retweeted by Joe Scarboroughprovocative speeches, roisterous crowds, frequent booing and hissing--it used to be the norm for conventions..these days, it's a shock.
Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughTed Cruz said "Don't stay home in November." Cruz should have stayed home tonight.Ted Cruz, as usual, is too clever by half.Free advice to all convention speakers: You don't have to yell. Let the microphone do a little bit of the work for you.Dad practically worshipped the Apollo astronauts. We all did. Other than Hank Aaron, there were no bigger heroes in our home.I remember my dad bringing in the paper and reading the Atlanta Journal Constitution's MAN WALKS ON THE MOON article to me.

Stunned that Trump surrogates are so dishonest they are defending plagiarism-The trump campaign owes Melania and the party a HUGE apology
Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughMelania Trump got fed to the wolves last night because of terrible staff work. @realDonaldTrump needs to fire the offending parties.Trump delegate: Donald Trump should tell someone "You're Fired.".@JoeNBC on Melania Trump's speech: We've got a crisis management issue here

Marlana Vanhoose. Wow!Such a nice moment with Bob Dole thanks to Kelly O'Donnell. #RNCinCLEVin Webber: "We haven't seen anything like this in a very long time. It's not good." #RNCinCLESo this convention now joins those in history where something spontaneous actually happens.
Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughFrom a land far, far away: this week 36 years ago Reagan puts GHWBush on the ticket, unifying party and sending markets up.
Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughA world that is unraveling, a US that is retrenching: a toxic combination. no wonder centrifugal forces winning out.

The president's words today were strong and unifying. Our nation is more united than recent tragedies suggest. Emmy Surprises As I was saying: Best Drama- The Americans Best Actor- Matthew Rhys Best Actress- Keri Russell

Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughRemembering Michael Elliott. Time Editor, ONE CEO, Liverpool fan. A wonderfully gifted man. #YNWA's disorienting to have had commiserated w/someone re: Trump - about how he was unacceptable, & then to see that someone become Trump's VP
Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughRushing to meet an arbitrary goal in the US is not the answer. Create a safe zone in Syria for their return home. I'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite ... op-er-a-tion-al

Retweeted by Joe Scarborough @matthewjdowd Well, coming from you, that ain't nothing. You've really understood the Republican Party's missteps better than most.Does @realDonaldTrump really run scared for the first time in this campaign on his most important decision?Mike Pence is a terrible fit for @realDonaldTrump. The pick is so off brand that it's hard to believe this is not a head fake.JFK & LBJ discuss Johnson’s possible run for Vice President, Los Angeles, Democratic convention, today 1960: #Lowe
Retweeted by Joe Scarborough @CornelWest also explains why he will not be voting for @HillaryClintonA provocative oped by @CornelWest on why "Obama has failed victims of racism and police brutality" we talked about why we believe @GovChristie would be a better VP pick for Trump than Gov Pence. me be perfectly clear... I'm a big fan of @BretBaier. He's a great guy.There's a blog suggesting I took a swipe at Bret. That is not true. I was commenting on how quickly Trump volunteered his attack on RBG. @BretBaier is a great interviewer and a great guy. My joke about the Trump interview was about Trump blurting out an answer w no prompting.Trump Says He 'Doesn't Mind' Losing The Senate To Democrats. ... His Supporters Are Suckers.

With Kate and Jack on #ACK! @JoeNBC My @TIMEIdeas piece. Thought it would be of interest given the exchange with @Eugene_Robinson this morning.
Retweeted by Joe Scarborough @SteveRattner & the panel talked about whether national or state polls are better predictors of victory. The answer?
Stunning numbers in ABC poll. 56% think Hillary should have been charged, and it's not close. +21% for indictment., @ColinBarnicle! (and proud papa, @mikebarnicle)

Congrats to #Portugal for their stellar display and deserved victory. Congrats to #France for hosting an amazing tournament. #EURO2016
Retweeted by Joe ScarboroughLike Zidane's missed header in 2006, Griezmann's missed header today was the missed opportunity that cost France. #FRAStunning. Heartbreak for France in 2016, ten years after their 2006 World Cup loss to Italy. #FRAYou know Ronaldo is now quietly cheering for France.It was good catching up with Secretary of State Kerry. Judging from our conversation, he plans to race to the finish line. No slowing down.
How can the entire DC GOP establishment oppose expanded background checks and keeping guns away from terrorists? my son saw in #Dallas this morning:

Bill Kristol on Trump's speech tonight: "It was pretty amazing." I'm not exactly sure what we just saw, but it was Trump, super-sized.Trump is having fun. The energy is different the last few days.Donald Trump is on fire tonight.The FBI convicted this poor guy for doing much less than Hillary Clinton. No intent found but not a Clinton. Guilty."The investigation didnt reveal evidence he intended to distribute classified information to unauthorized personnel"
Rudy Giuliani: By Jim Comey’s own description, Hillary is guilty of a federal crime « Hot Air Intent? No Problem! FBI sentenced man for mishandling classified materials. Unfortunately, he wasn't a Clinton. whitewash begins.The WILLFULNESS came when she recklessly set up a server and forced people to transmit national security secrets unsecured.Is the President proud to campaign with a candidate who was "extremely reckless" mishandling some of the nation's most sensitive secrets?So, the president who undermined the FBI investigation months ago scheduled campaign stops the day the FBI made their stinging announcement.Sweden now dealing with the type of social disorder growing in Germany. Clinton’s email problems might be even worse than we thought - The Washington Post - made the wrong choice (reposted from 3/10/15, hours before her infamous UN newser)
