‘Morning Joe’ Interviews Plame, Doesn’t Mention Her Anti-Semitic Past

BY:

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosted Valerie Plame on their show Friday, but the program's hosts and guests made no mention of her past anti-Semitic statements.

Last year, the former CIA operative tweeted "America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars."

In her tweet, Plame linked back to an article which included a statement that Jewish commentators should be labeled as such on television.

"For those American Jews who lack any shred of integrity, the media should be required to label them at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is ‘Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel,’" the article Plame linked to said.

Shortly before Plame's interview on "Morning Joe," the show's cast talked to Kristol.

During her tenure at the CIA, she was outed as an operative and then-Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff Lewis "Scooter" Libby was convicted of lying to the FBI and obstruction of justice in the investigation. President George W. Bush commuted his prison sentence.

President Donald Trump is reportedly planning to pardon Libby.

Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Katty Kay, Willie Geist and Donny Deutsch all spoke to Plame, but none of them mentioned her anti-Semitic history in an interview lasting more than six minutes.

Instead at the end, Scarborough told Plame to say hello to her husband, former ambassador Joe Wilson, for him.

"Thanks so much, please say hello to Joe," Scarborough said.
