Elise Jordan's MSNBC career

The TV show attracts guests from different areas, including political analysts and insiders, newsmakers, cultural influencers, and journalists.
When on the show, Elise Jordan always tries to represent her voice and opinions. She gives an analysis and insight into what is happening in the world of politics. It is also through the programme that she can talk about major political events from where they are happening, including conventions.

The show talks about public affairs and features interviews with leaders in the US and around the globe.

Controversies
Elise has had her share of controversies over the years. But being a political analyst means saying things many people might not like. Here is a look at previous instances where she said and wrote some controversial things about American politics and Donald Trump.
In her column in the Time magazine in 2016, Elise Jordan called Roy Moore a predator and suggested that his candidacy would prove America’s moral decline. The article seemed controversial because Jordan has always been a Republican. On June 22, 2017, the MSNBC political analyst warned GOP lawmakers that defending President Trump would be like "hugging a suicide bomber." She made those comments after President Trump revealed in his tweets he did not have any tapes of his conversations with FBI Director James Comey. On February 11, 2019, Steve Schmidt threatened legal action against the Words Matter Podcast if they released an episode where he stormed off. Elise had challenged him on why he had decided to work with his competitor Schultz. Schmidt accused the producers of having hijacked the show from him. On April 17, 2019, several publications accused Elise of having an altered view of gay history. During her segment on Morning Joe, she described Pete Buttigieg and his sexual orientation by saying, “it is not his story. It is a side note to who he is.” The political analyst also went further to say being gay “should not be an issue.” Many people saw her views as twisted since Buttigieg has never indicated that his sexual orientation is a side note. Instead, he has accepted it and embraced his husband.
Despite being a Republican, Elise has said and written both negative and positive things about the party and President Trump. But it is her cyclical views on Donald Trump that make his supporters feel offended at times. Many see her political opinions on the party and the president as more conservative because they are favouring the Democrats.
