The set of “Morning Joe” offered a dismal reaction to President Trump’s speech to the United Nation on Tuesday, telling their audience Wednesday that world leaders were laughing at Trump and warned that America had surrendered it’s place in the world.
The show opened with footage of world leaders offering spontaneous laugher to President Trump’s claim that his administration had accomplished “more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
“I just want everyone to stop for a second and get reaction to the sound bite you just saw and the laughter you just heard,” said co-host Mika Brzezinski. “The world is laughing at the President of the United States and Donald Trump’s America has become the butt of a big joke.”
“What you saw there tells you a lot about how the world leaders see Donald Trump. They are openly laughing at him,” she continued.
The president’s speech to the United Nations was deeply polarizing, with critics on MSNBC slamming the performance, while the president’s fans in MAGAland were broadly supportive.
The UN speech was a departure for the show, which has dedicated the lion’s share of coverage all week to sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh — which will come a a dramatic climax tomorrow when Christine Blasey Ford is expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
