MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” got creative in its daily mocking of Donald Trump on Monday by offering viewers and panelists a pop quiz to see how they’d react to the London attack if put in the president’s shoes.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, “The capital city of your closest ally is attacked. Do you do this?”
An on-screen graphic offered five different choices:
A. Retweet Drudged before being briefed.
B. Use the attack to lobby the Supreme Court overturn lower court rulings that said your travel ban is unconstitutional.
C. Openly attack the mayor of the city under assault and quote him out of context.
D. Go golfing for the 22nd time in your 19-week tenure.
E. All of the above.
“This isn’t realistic,” co-host Joe Scarborough said.
Panelist Noah Rothman chimed in, “This is like the Jeff Foxworthy thing, ‘You might be the president.’” Panelist Nicholas Confessore asked if there was an “F” option.
“If you answered E, congratulations. You’re the President of the United States and you’re watching ‘Morning Joe,’” Brzezinski said.
Scarborough added, “Hi Mr. President.”
The newly engaged “Morning Joe” co-hosts have ripped President Trump on a regular basis since he was sworn into office, but the duo was famously criticized for being too close with Trump during the GOP primaries. It’s safe to assume the president won’t be amused by Monday’s pop quiz.
