MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough lost it on Tuesday morning when he learned that Donald Trump was in the middle of a tweet storm, accusing the president of “spinning wildly out of control.”
Trump slammed everything from Obamacare and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Twitter, and it appears Scarborough has finally had enough. He even spent some of his morning segment speaking directly to the president.
The tweet by Trump that made Scarborough snap read: “Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!”
“He put McCabe up as a possible finalist to be his FBI director. Where’s the memory?,” Scarborough said. “McCabe… was on his finalist list as an FBI director and now he’s going back to complaints he had of September, October of last year. I want people to be observing and taking notes today… this guy is spinning wildly out of control.”
Scarborough appeared out of breath and visibly worked up, even more than usual (he mocks the president on a regular basis). Co-host Mika Brzezinski said that someone needs to grab the president’s phone, prompting Scarborough to turn to the camera and address Trump directly.
“I know, you never watch this show, Donald,” Scarborough said. “Whatever show you’re watching is making you crazy. Not crazy, I don’t think you’re crazy, but its’ making you crazy. So you really need to turn to SportsCenter and you need to stop watching, because these tweets make you look really bad.”
Scarborough continued: “I am 100 percent serious. He needs to stop watching this show”
