“Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ridiculed Donald Trump on Friday morning after the president took aim at presumptive presidential campaign opponent Joe Biden in a Twitter boast that read: “He cannot pass the test I ‘aced’. He should give it a try!!!”
After the two hosts finished giggling at the president’s claim, Brzezinski explained what Trump’s test was comprised of.
“He’s still talking about that test. they show a picture of a lion and say what is this? That’s what he’s bragging about?” Scarborough smirked.
“Here’s in the cognitive test that he claimed he aced,” co-host Brzezinski explained. “As the New York Times explained back in 2018, to assess attention and concentration subjects are read a list of five digits and are asked to repeat them in the order they were provided. Other exercises include drawing a clock with the hands pointing to 11, 10 and then identifying a lion, rhino or a camel. A perfect score is 30. A score from 26 to 30 is considered normal.”
“And two years later, he is bragging about being able to identify a lion or a rhino or a camel,” Scarborough re-emphasized.
With Brzezinski reminding viewers about Trump’s claim that he only uses the “best words,” the Morning Joe hosts then shared a supercut of the president bumbling and slurring his way through speeches before his fans.
If Trump loses two more states it’s ‘ballgame over’: AP reporter
Appearing on MSNBC's " Morning Joe," Associated Press White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire explained Donald Trump's chances of being re-elected have reached the point where, if he loses the electoral votes of one more, he will be out of luck and out of office.
Speaking with co-host Joe Scarborough, Lemire was asked where Trump stands in the battleground states he so desperately needs.
"Both campaigns agree that there are six battleground states to decide this election: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, North Carolina, Florida," he began. "Now the president has to play defense and has had to spend resources and had to go the past week to places like Ohio, Texas -- Georgia is another one where he has to play defense. We don't see, outside of perhaps New Hampshire, a place where Democrats have to do the same now that the Trump campaign has ceded Michigan."
Morning Joe busts Trump for trying to scam the public with a fake tax cut proposal

After first pointing out the president's contempt for Americans struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled the economy.
"It was a huge, gigantic nothingburger when you look through the policies at the end," Scarborough began. "In fact, some of the policies he put forth are going to hurt people, hurt small business owners the most. Again I go back to the payroll tax cuts -- economists, Republicans, Democrats, everybody is opposing this.
