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.

CNN host left in tears after heartbreaking report on COVID-19 victims
During a segment on CNN this Monday, anchor Brianna Keilar was moved to tears while honoring people who've lost their lives to the coronavirus, especially while telling the story of a couple who died holding hands.
Keilar recounted how a couple married for over 50 years died from the virus only minutes apart after being admitted to the hospital on August 11. When it became clear they wouldn't survive, they were place in the same ward, where they died holding hands.

So-called moderate Georgia senator brags she’s as conservative as a pagan barbarian who killed his own brother to rule
Sen. Kelly Loeffler's (R-GA) new campaign ad brags that she's "more conservative than Attila the Hun," with an actor grunting off a "list" of things he would do.
It appears neither Loeffler nor her staff thought to google who Attila the Hun was and why associating yourself with him could be a public relations disaster.
Among the things the History Channel remembers about Attila, was that he killed his own brother to ensure absolute power. He invaded Gaul in an attempt to score a wife. He also had a "legendary lust for gold."
McConnell’s Supreme Court fight exposes the contempt he and Trump hold for millions of Americans: op-ed
Writing for the Washington Post this Monday, Greg Sargent says that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's forging ahead with a vote to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg is more than just "hypocrisy" -- it's a demonstration of "the contempt that McConnell and Trump hold for millions and millions of American voters."
"It’s about their cavalier willingness to treat all those voters’ political preferences as having no legitimate purchase at all — that is, when they vote for Democrats," Sargent writes.
According to Sargent, the "real game" was given away by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who declared that the “Constitution gives Senators the power” to confirm nominees, and so “no one should be surprised” if they do it in this case.
