“I know everybody in the press hates Donald Trump… I’m just giving you the political reality. And this is the political reality that for the Republican base, Donald Trump delivered the political attack on the Clinton machine that the Republican base and middle America have been waiting for,” Scarborough said.
Brzezinski also enjoyed it. “My god, it was epic. It was vintage Trump,” she said.
Brzezinski and Scarborough had an extremely cozy relationship with Trump during the GOP primary when they allowed him to call in to the show often, and even lobbed softball questions during a controversial town hall. But things changed when Trump became the nominee, and the “Morning Joe” team began to dedicate entire segments to bashing the presidential candidate. Scarborough even recorded a song mocking Trump, titled “Amnesty Don.”
