The panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” broke into their regularly scheduled discussion on the chaos of the White House to watch clips from President Donald Trump’s call into “Fox & Friends” on Thursday morning, with host Joe Scarborough declaring Trump is now officially “unhinged.”
“Those memos were about me and they are phony,” Trump excitedly exclaimed. “He didn’t write them accurately. For instance, I went to Russia for a day or so, a day or two, because I own the Miss Universe pageant.
I went there to watch it because it was near Moscow, so I go to Russia — everybody knows the planes are there. He said I didn’t stay there, of course I stayed there. I stayed there a very short period of time but of course I stayed — the memo says I left immediately.”
“Everything you just said was wrong,” a stunned Scarborough stated. “Everything Donald Trump just said there was wrong. He claimed he didn’t spend the night. It wasn’t Comey claiming he didn’t spend the night.”
“Comey said he seemed guilty because he kept saying over and over again, he didn’t spend the night,” Scarborough continued before passing sentence on Trump.
“The president is unhinged. You can hear it, he’s unhinged. He keeps contradicting himself,” Scarborough said. “He’s talking about documents being classified that nobody said were classified at the time that Comey let them out — nobody.”
“It’s wonderful, but can you imagine nobody is there grabbing the phone from him?” co-host Mika Brzezinski quipped.
“I don’t want anyone grabbing the phone from him,” Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult star Stormy Daniels interjected. “I want him to appear every morning on Fox & Friends. Please, mister president, keep going on.”
