MSNBC anchor Ari Melber surprised a guest on Monday by playing the Shark Week episode that former adult film performer Stormy Daniels has repeatedly recounted during interviews.

Vox Media, senior producer Liz Plank joined Melber to analyze the blockbuster 60 Minutes interview of Daniels.

“There’s another part of this interview that is consistent with Stormy Daniels’ past statements,” Melber noted. “She said Donald Trump is obsessed with sharks.”

Melber then read a quote from Daniels’ In Touch Weekly interview.

“He was like, ‘I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.’ He was like riveted. He was like obsessed,” Daniels reportedly claimed.

Melber then played a clip of Stormy Daniels telling her Shark Week story during a 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, which aired Sunday evening.

“This is what we believe to be the episode,” Melber proudly declared.

“How do you, how do you know this?” an astonished Plank wondered.

“What does Donald Trump’s fear of sharks tell us about Donald Trump?” Plank wondered.

“I ask you, my guest on this TV show,” Melber replied.

“What do sharks represent?” Melber asked. “Something he can’t control?”

“Lawyers?” Plank suggested.

“Lawyers are sharks,” Melber laughed “you had the answer.”

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
