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!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 21, 2019
“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.”

"Honestly, it's always dread with President Trump," said Phillip.

92% of HPV-caused cancers could be prevented by vaccine: health authority
An estimated 92% of cancers caused by HPV could be prevented through vaccination, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday, adding that boosting immunization coverage was a key priority.
Human papillomavirus was responsible for an estimated yearly average of 34,800 cancer cases between 2012 and 2016, according to a new study published by the CDC, meaning that more than 32,100 cases could have been avoided annually.
The virus can lead to cancers in both men and women, including cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynx (the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils).
