Question for regular Morning Joe watchers.

Yes, I watch the show now that they hate Trump.
Yes, I know that some of you still donít and wonít care about this post.

That being said, for those that watch the show, I think something is up with Mika.
She and Joe were gone last week and the substitutes said they would be back this week.
However, both yesterday and this morning, Joe was back and Mika was not.
And, on top of that, Joe didnít even mention that she was off or when she would be back on either Mondayís or Tuesdays opens.

Iím wondering if she is going thru something personal or thru contract negotiations?
For the last few months, she has rarely been on the show.
And even when she is there, she doesnít seem as fully engaged as she once was.

5. Sounds bad, but who knows...

Not much gossip around about them that I see, but the real problem is that the show is a lot better without him.

Mika runs a good show, maybe she's got something lined up.

6. It's summer, people take time off.

I doubt anything this going on.

7. Particularly with her kids being college aged, I believe

And all that entails getting them to where they need to be.

It's also worth remembering that we're about to enter midterm season in full swing, which means extended hours and little time away. So the summer quiet news season is when a lot of them do take more and more time off.

10. +1000

As someone who has spent the last 3 weeks first on summer vacation, coming back and getting ready for the start of school for one child and getting another off to College and moved in.....

Nothing to see or be concerned about.....

Mika will just need a week off once its all done....but like all parents, she won't and will be back to work....

13. No. Joe is back. Mika was supposed to be back but she is not.

Like I said in the OP, Joe ALWAYS acknowledges where and why Mika is not there.
He will say if she sick or has a family obligation or whatever.
He did not mention her either yesterday or today.
Very odd.

12. Good observation. Yeah, you're right. When she's gone they usually say...


"Mika's in the south of France but she will be back on the set tomorrow" Or something similar.

When she was gone when her dad was ailing, we didn't hear anything about his condition or where she was until they announced he had died.

I'm also thinking she might have been disciplined for her forcefully speaking out recently in a really negative (awesome) rant against trump. She has mentioned that has happened before. So maybe she's been muzzled or subdued?

I do hope her mother is OK.

And yes, two kids going back to college can take a lot of time.

When she returns, check out if she is still wearing her engagement ring.

Maybe it's all of these things. Don't know.
