The panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” returned to their favorite pastime Tuesday morning: mocking Trump.
This time, the group stooped as low as to make fun of a video of the president helping to unload supplies for Hurricane Harvey victims. Co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “You actually have to care about people to make it work,” while co-host Joe Scarborough added his own sound effects, saying, “Duh,” every time Trump handed over a box.
The hosts continued in a mocking tone…
“You see, the president is getting involved in relief efforts and it’s heartening to me,” Scarborough said. “You can tell that he’s done this. I don’t know if he did it with Americare, I don’t know if he’s a Red Cross guy, but here he is helping out.”
“What about the family, when they came down?” asked Brzezinski of the Trump family. “That was so nice, the boys and Ivanka and Jared.”
“That’s obviously a photo-op for the president, who did a nice job going down there twice,” Scarborough continued. “Let’s give him credit for going down there. But he was asked to put — I think we have a video somewhere — put the bucket in the back of a pickup. ‘Mr. President, put this in the pickup.’”
They were relentless in criticizing a clip of Trump handing something to the driver of a pickup truck.
“The flatbed part, you mean. That’s where you’re supposed to put it,” injected panelist John Heilemann as Scarborough made the “duh” sounds in the background.
“That’s why they call it a truck,” panelist Richard Haas added.
“There you go. ‘Okay, I’ll put that on the gear shift.’ I’ll bet they’re not breaking this down on ‘Fox and Friends,'” Scarborough concluded, taking a shot at Trump’s preferred cable morning show.
Scarborough and Trump have gone back and forth throughout Trump’s presidency, with the president using “Psycho Joe” as his favored nick name for the liberal TV anchor.
