MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough ridiculed President Donald Trump for handing a bucket to the driver of a truck during a photo opportunity in Houston, rather than placing the cargo in the truck’s bed.
The “Morning Joe” host credited the president for bringing attention to relief efforts in the hurricane-ravaged city, but he said the moment revealed Trump’s disconnect from most Americans.
“You can tell that he’s done this — I don’t know if it was with Americares, I don’t know if he’s a Red Cross guy, but here he is helping out, that’s great,” Scarborough said, sarcastically.
Scarborough explained that Trump handed a bucket filled with relief items to a confused pickup driver, instead of placing it in the truck’s bed.
“You have to just take it, because if the president is putting it in the wrong place — ‘here’s your bag of cement,'” Scarborough said. “You’re like, ‘Okay, you’ve got a whole, like, (flatbed) back there.”
Producers repeatedly played the moment when Trump hands the bucket into the driver’s window, as Scarborough and his panelists hooted with laughter.
“‘There you go,'” Scarborough said, dumbly. “‘Okay, I’ll put that on the gearshift.'”
They applauded as they watched Trump recover and place the next bucket into the truck’s bed, where cargo belongs.
“I bet they’re not breaking this down on ‘Fox & Friends,'” Scarborough said.

Fox & Friends hosts visibly deflated after Andrew Napolitano destroys their hopes of a quick impeachment trial
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano deflated the hosts of "Fox & Friends" by poking holes in their impeachment defense of President Donald Trump.
Co-host Steve Doocy argued that Trump's conversations with former national security adviser John Bolton and other White House officials were protected by executive privilege, but Napolitano pointed out that wasn't necessarily so.
"If John came here as he used to, and started spilling the beans, that would violate the privilege," Napolitano said of Bolton, a former Fox News guest. "But it would be perfectly lawful and he would be able to do it. If he did it in a press conference it would be lawful and he could do it. The question is, can he do it under oath in the well of the Senate? That's where the authority is divided."
Morning Joe incinerates Ken Starr’s ‘pious’ Trump impeachment defense: ‘Do you know who you are?’

Rick Wilson buries Pam Bondi for ‘laughable and shallow’ impeachment defense designed to dazzle Trump
Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Republican campaign consultant Rick Wilson leveled former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi for her defense of Donald Trump on Monday -- which turned into a diatribe against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Speaking with host Willie Geist, Wilson also brought up accusations os political corruption against Bondi who dropped a Florida state lawsuit against Trump before he became president after a PAC associated with her received a substantial political donation.
"This is also one of the great master fantasies of the Trump campaign, make Hunter Biden a major issue in the 2020 election and Pam Bondi played to one audience. and that was Fox and Trump that's all they cared about," he explained. "That's all they were trying to accomplish, and, look, she goes way back with Donald Trump; left office under a cloud when she left the office of attorney general in Florida, because she had taken basically a $25,000 bribe from Donald Trump about Trump University and drop the lawsuit in Florida."
