Morning Joe: Robert Mueller Will Be A Witch Again When Trump Sees His Report
MSNBC’s Morning Joe defended the media Tuesday morning following attacks by President Donald Trump and those close to him. Hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski pointed out that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation had produced results, despite Trump calling it a “witch hunt.”
“Jared Kushner had hundreds of errors and omissions of his security clearance form. Leaving off contacts with who? The French?” Scarborough asked. “No, the Russians. Including a campaign meeting with Donald Trump Jr, which President Trump later worked to cover up. You remember that? Do you remember Donald Trump on Air Force One calling everybody together and concocting a lie to send to The New York Times?”
“What was he lying about? Contact with Russians in Trump Tower because they believed – and Don Jr said, I love it – that they were going to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. I’m not even bringing up all the criminal indictments of the campaign chairman Paul Manafort. I’m not even bringing up the indictments of long-term deputy Rick Gates or the indictments of foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos.”
“I had to say his name, it’s been so long,” Scarborough said. “Who lied to investigators seeking information about what? The French? No. The Russians. Russian interference time and time and again. I’m just curious, what was the media supposed to do when Donald Trump lied about meeting with Russians? The Vice President lied about campaign meetings with Russians. The attorney general lied about meetings with Russians. Jared Kushner lied about meeting with Russians. George Papadopoulos lied about meeting with Russians. I could go on and on. But I won’t. I’ll just say the media did a pretty damn good job.”
“And I understand, Donald, you’re writing your enemy list right now, you’re telling people who they can have on the show and can’t have on the show, now you’re tweeting again, enemies of the people? Is that anything like the witch hunt? How many times did you bring up the witch hunt? And now suddenly Robert Mueller, he’s a good and honorable man.”
“Until you see his report, maybe,” Brzezinski said.
“Then you’ll see his report and all of a sudden, he’ll be a witch again,” Scarborough said.
