Published

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took the day off from his Morning Joe show Wednesday morning, but that doesn’t mean he took a day off from criticizing President Donald Trump.

Starting early in the morning, Scarborough launched a tweetstorm at Trump, accusing him of “cherry picking” one year of tax returns that make him look good and leaking them to journalist David Cay Johnston to draw attention away “from Russia hearings and the Trumpcare meltdown.”

“This one tax return is not bad for him because he cherry picked one return from over a decade ago and had it leaked to the press,” Scarborough said in the first of several tweets following an evening when fellow MSNBC host Rachel Maddow hyped up the release.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.

"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.

"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.

"The fumble could not have been more poorly timed: According to multiple current and former White House officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations, Trump has been steadily souring on Mulvaney for weeks."
