A panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program mocked President Donald Trump on Thursday for threatening to pull NBC’s broadcast license even though the network isn’t required to have one.
After NBC News reported that Trump had requested a 10-fold increase in the U.S. nuclear stockpile, the president lashed out on Twitter.
“With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” Trump wrote.
On Thursday, the Morning Joe panel couldn’t help but laugh at the threat.
“To be clear, the networks themselves do not hold federal licenses, their individual television stations do,” MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski pointed out. “Right? Only a moron would think that anyhow.”
