Morning Joe ‘Disturbed’ by Obama Dodging Press, Doing BuzzFeed Stunt Instead

Posted on 30 June 2016

Thursday on Morning Joe the editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed, Ben Smith, attempted to justify President Obama’s recent stunt in a commercial that mocked the difficulties people face when registering to vote.

The perplexed hosts of Morning Joe vocalized how “disturbed” they were by the video. Ben Smith’s response? “YOLO,” short for “You Only Live Once.”
