Joe Scarborough Tells Trump Not to Watch ‘Morning Joe’: ‘Not Good for Your Health’
Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough has told President Donald Trump not to watch his show. The President tweeted about the MSNBC show on Tuesday morning and Scarborough responded in real time, telling Trump he should watch Fox News instead.
“I’ve been asking, politely, I think, that the President take this crisis more seriously, because I’m obviously concerned about senior citizens that support him and all senior citizens,” Scarborough said.
“Our mothers, our fathers, our grandparents. And so the President, of course, with this crisis upon us, with the universities being shut down, with this health care crisis at our doorstep, the President has actually decided to tweet about our show. So that’s where the President’s mind is right now.”
Wow! @foxandfriends blew away the competition of Morning Joke (which did very poorly) on MSDNC (Another Comcast sleaze production), and @CNN’s New Day, in the Morning Television Ratings. A total blowout, but that’s what you get when you treat “Trump” fairly!

“Yeah, just tweeted about our show. Donald, I’ve asked you this for years, Donald. Please don’t watch our show. It’s better for you. You know it is. It’s better for you. It is not better for us, because we’ve had record ratings this — well, the past several years.”
“We think it’s better for America that you just keep watching Fox and Friends,” he said. “I know you say you do. Everybody that works with you tells me that you watch us every day. Not good for your health, OK? I’m not like the Surgeon General, but I can tell you that you, watching Morning Joe every day, is really bad for your mental health.”
“So we ask if you will please, as a service to the United States of America, and those senior citizens who we’re trying to protect, we ask that you watch Fox and Friends. Don’t watch us. Stay focused and do what’s best for America.”
