Morning Joe: Seeks a Morning of Trans Bashing

According to the Scandalous Candice Blog

“MSNBC’s morning show called Morning Joe has crossed the line. Morning Joe is a news show hosted by a failed republican congressman named Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, and Willie Geist.

Today though they crossed the line. They reported on Thomas Beatie, the transgendered male who is having a baby. They put the story in what they call a useless news category “News You Can’t Use” and proceeded to make fun of them and call the couple “disgusting” and make “ewww” sounds. They did this more than once on the show. They also called it “garbage” and saying “people don’t want to wake up to this crap.” That was quoted by Mika Brzezinski. Joe used the story to lead into the next story by saying “this is probably why 81% of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.” A poll reported by the New York Times.”

Please scroll down on the following page and contact MSNBC and morning Joe about these transphobic and disgusting comments:

If you aren’t familiar with Thomas Beatie the pregnant trans-man please check out the following clip beautifully portrayed yesterday on the Oprah Winfrey show.



On a side note of activism, feel free to contact Oprah to thank her for her touching program on this family and their journey.

It's always amazing how quickly conservatives find ways to divert attention from their horribly failed agenda to blame others who aren't in positions of power. Oprah is one of a few voices of reason left on American TV. It's just a shame that she hasn't come out yet.
