MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” responded to Donald Trump’s tweets in real time Wednesday morning, telling him that “the source is your son” immediately after the president accused the media of making up sources.
“That’s kind of a buffoon-like statement at this point,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said.
Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to defend his “innocent” eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who appeared on “Hannity” on Tuesday night to discuss his previously undisclosed meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer. The president also accused the “fake news” media of making up sources.
Co-host Willie Geist read Trump’s tweets on the MSNBC morning show as the panel accused Trump’s White House of using anonymous sources “all the time” despite the president often mocking the use of anonymous sources by the mainstream media.
“Remember, when you hear the words ‘sources say’ from the Fake Media, often times those sources are made up and do not exist,” Trump wrote tweeted early Wednesday morning.
Brzezinski responded, “One could say, Mr. president, the source is your son.”
On Tuesday night, co-host Joe Scarborough announced on CBS’s “The Late Show” that he’s leaving the Republican party to become an Independent.
I’m not going to be a Republican anymore. I’ve got to become an Independent,” Scarborough told Stephen Colbert. Scarborough served as a Republican representative for Florida’s 1st District from 1995 to 2001.
