President Donald Trump boasted that no one had ever worked harder in the White House than him, and MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked his claims.
The "Morning Joe" co-hosts reacted to the outgoing president's farewell address, which veered off script and sounded a bit like one of his campaign rallies.
"He did pass massive tax cuts that a lot of businesses and CEOs enjoyed and profited from a great deal," Scarborough said, highlighting Trump's claims. "There will be debates for some time about how those tax cuts helped the richest Americans overwhelmingly. He boasted about cutting regulations, talked about incredible job numbers, talked about the best-ever economy, that's, as we've shown you repeatedly, he ranked seventh among modern presidents in terms of GDP growth. He said the United States was the greatest country in the world with a greatest economy in the world, and it was the greatest honor of his life to be president of the United States."
"Donald Trump also talked about a miracle vaccine that took nine months instead of nine years, that it was a medical miracle," Scarborough added. "He also said something that White House correspondents will question, that he worked harder than anything else in the White House ever, that they left everything on the field. Really went straight to Donald Trump's appeal when he said, 'I will always fight for you.'"
Brzezinski couldn't let Trump's boast go.
"The president talking about being a hard worker is a president who golfed over 300 times during his presidency and spent most of his time watching television and had his handlers describe 'executive time,'" she said. "We are watching the president of the United States depart, and now the president-elect and his wife, the future first lady, Dr. Jill Biden. Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden emerging from Blair House and now a new vision for America begins as the Trumps are leaving and the Bidens are emerging."
