MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked President Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for their reactions to the first Democratic presidential debate.
The president insisted he wouldn’t watch Wednesday’s debate, but later declared it “BORING!” and criticized MSNBC for a technical issue during the broadcast.
“As usual, the president could not help himself from watching,” Brzezinski said. “This is like his ‘Morning Joe’ thing — he can’t help himself.”
The “Morning Joe” co-hosts then turned their attention to Graham, who has turned from a strong Trump critic during the 2016 GOP primaries to joking about Trump serving an unconstitutional third term.
After tonight’s #DemocraticDebate…….that whole Trump 3rd term thing is looking better and better.ADVERTISEMENT

“Wow, that guy,” Brzezinski said. “Lindsey, save yourself. Oh, my god.”
The co-hosts agreed Graham was burning his reputation faster than former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.
“A man who said that Donald Trump was unfit to be president of the United States and would destroy the Republican Party if they nominated him,” Scarborough said, “they would deserve to be destroyed.”
“As bad as Rudy,” Brzezinski said.
Stephen Colbert says Trump hates The Squad because ‘he’s the leader of the rival gang The Klan’
Stephen Colbert returned to "The Late Show" on Monday after a two-week summer vacation and wasted no time updating his viewers on the latest from "Racist-in-Chief" Donald Trump.
"There were some big stories while we were gone. The sun rose in the East, a bear relieved itself in the woods, Donald Trump was racist," Colbert said.
"And this wasn't just any run-of-the-mill, this was a humdinger. A new personal best at being the worst," he explained.
"Yesterday the president pinched out a steaming pile of tweets against freshman Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Oman of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachuttes and Rashida Tlaib on Michigan -- known in DC as 'The Squad,'" Colbert said, while the audience clapped loudly at the mention of "The Squad."
Seth Meyers hilariously ridicules Trump for not knowing the Constitution: ‘Article II — nobody’s ever seen it before’
After a long vacation, late-night shows returned to bring some levity to the difficulty of the news cycle. Such was the case when "Late Night" host Seth Meyers ridiculed President Donald Trump for not knowing The Constitution that well.
"Number one: there's no crime. And how do you obstruct when there's no crime?" Trump asked during a brief statement Friday. Martha Stewart would take issue with that statement.
"Also take a look at one other thing. It's a thing called Article II. Nobody ever mentions Article II. It give me all these rights at a level nobody has ever seen before. We don't even talk about Article II," Trump said.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow shows what Trump was trying to distract from with his latest racist attacks
On Monday night, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow unpacked a number of critically important news stories that have been largely lost in the shuffle amid outrage over President Donald Trump's racist attacks on Democratic congresswomen — stories that could be critically important in coming weeks, and problematic for the president, but that he doubtless was grateful didn't dominate the cycle.
First, Maddow noted, there was "what they announced in terms of changes to asylum law ... maybe this president's most radical effort to change laws along racial lines since the Muslim ban that he tried to implement as soon as he got into office. It's part of a larger mosaic in terms of how the president is running and using race to get himself reelected." The law would ban any migrants from receiving asylum if they failed to apply for asylum in any country they passed through, which would be impractical or ineffective for many of them.
