‘This show is making you crazy’: Morning Joe begs Trump to turn the channel
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough urged President Donald Trump to stop working himself into a stir with morning news shows and watch ESPN’s “SportsCenter” instead.
The “Morning Joe” host said Trump’s recent tweets attacking Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Hillary Clinton and the media show “this guy is spinning wildly out of control,” and Scarborough leaned into the camera to speak directly to the president.
“I know you know never watch this show, Donald, but whatever show you’re watching is making you crazy,” Scarborough said, his face filling the frame. “I don’t think you’re crazy, but it’s making you act crazy. So you really need to turn to SportsCenter, and you really need to stop watching because these tweets make you look really bad.”
“It’s seriously not in the best interests of the United States of America or our allies or the world at large if the president watches ‘Morning Joe,'” he added. “I am 100 percent serious — he needs to stop watching this show.”
