MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika mock Trump for insisting he’s happy — even as he keeps churning out angry tweets
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinksi ridiculed President Donald Trump for spending the weekend insisting he had “never been happier” after Robert Mueller’s findings were issued.
The “Morning Joe” co-hosts opened Monday’s program by reading the president’s Easter tweet and rolling video of his surrogates proclaiming Trump’s happiness after the special counsel report revealed evidence of obstruction.
Happy Easter! I have never been happier or more content because your Country is doing so well, with an Economy that is the talk of the World and may be stronger than it has ever been before. Have a great day!# p #3_10 # ad skipped = true #

“Happy people always tell you how happy they are,” Brzezinski said, “much like smart people who always tell you (how smart they are).”
They rolled video of Trump bragging about his intelligence and academic credentials, and Scarborough laughed out loud.
“I’m so happy and I’m so smart,” Brzezinski said.
“Despite the president as angry as he was,” Scarborough said, “both the president and his aides want to tell you that they’re happy. I think this shows resilience, and I think it shows the sort of can-do attitude needs to have even after one has been found guilty in a report of possibly obstructing justice. They couldn’t even clear him, which makes me sad.”
