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.

“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.
Republicans ‘sweating’ raising cash for Jacksonville convention as Charlotte committee withholds millions: report
According to a report from Politico, the Republican National Committee has been forced to bring in a high-powered fundraiser to round up the money they need to put on the nominating convention for Donald Trump in Jacksonville, and senior Republicans are "sweating" they may not reach the cash goal they need.
One problem they are unexpectedly facing is that convention organizers in jilted Charlotte, North Carolina -- which saw their convention yanked away by Donald Trump because he was unhappy about restrictions placed by the state due to the coronavirus pandemic -- are refusing to turn over an unspent $7 million in funds they raised.

Trump allies want Mike Flynn to hit the road and campaign with the president: report
On Saturday, Politico reported that allies of President Donald Trump want former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to hit the campaign trail with the president, believing him to be a hero in the eyes of the president's supporters.
"Now, after a prolonged battle against what Trump’s biggest supporters see as a rigged judicial system staffed by Obama-era bureaucrats, Flynn’s status as a deep state-fighting warrior has only grown," reported Anita Kumar and Gabby Orr. "And with Flynn on the verge of potentially having criminal charges dismissed altogether, Trump allies are pushing the campaign to give Flynn the ultimate comeback: hitting the campaign trail for the president, according to nine people inside or close to the Trump campaign."
