“Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ridiculed Donald Trump on Monday after he issued a statement dismissing their MSNBC show.
The former president marked Martin Luther King Jr. Day by broadcasting one announcement insulting the cable news program, saying their viewership is low and then abusing a word to criticize them.
“They have an extremely hard time finding an audience to listen to the fake news they reject,” Trump wrote, saying the opposite of what he was apparently trying to convey.
“We reject false news,” Brzezinski remarked, using the word correctly with its definition of “reject with contempt or contempt.”
Scarborough joked that Trump just “can not leave us.”
MSNBC’s chyron read “Morning Joe thanks loyal viewers: Florida retiree sends thoughts on show” during the exchange, which sent the panel giggling.
“Thank you very much,” Scarborough said.
Rev. Al Sharpton, who was in the air during the episode, suggested that Trump might have been “driven” and “threatened” by an earlier discussion of a reported rift between former president and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a potential rival to the Republican presidential candidate in 2024.
“You can not suggest he may be a has-been,” Sharpton said. “I think because of that, your ratings are suddenly not there, you have no audience. It’s an indication that you have an audience of one: Donald Trump.”
Trump routinely swapped punches with Scarborough, a vocal critic, during his time in the White House. In 2020, he promoted an unfounded conspiracy theory that the TV host was involved in a murder by tweeting about it to his 80 million followers.
