On the 2 September 2014 edition of Morning Joe, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski felt sorry for President Obama and all the crises overseas that he has to deal with: "You look at just the President, and the incoming on foreign policy crises, I think it's possibly unprecedented, except for extreme times of war."
Moments earlier, the morning newscast played a montage of video clips looking back at all the tumultuous events from the summer. Joe Scarborough expressed his disbelief at the amount of chaos, while Brzezinski replied to the mash-up by setting up her lament for the chief executive:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: It's really unbelievable. It's really unbelievable everything that happened this summer – so many bad images out there-
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: It – unlike any other-
SCARBOROUGH: There's some – there's some good, joyful images-
SCARBOROUGH: But that was – you know, we hear all the time about how things moved so much faster in the '60s – and they did. Things just kept coming – you know, certain years – at everybody so quickly. And it happened again this past summer. And you look back – my God.
