‘Morning Joe’ Demands President Trump Fire Some Staff: 'The Show Has Begun Really Badly'
President Trump’s first 48 hours in office began with a lie, widely criticized by both the left and the right.
"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period," Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced on Saturday, while offering zero evidence to back up his claim.
After the irresponsible announcement dominated the news cycle this past weekend, the Morning Joe team weighed in Monday morning. “It’s show time,” co-host Mika Brzezinski began. “And the [Trump] show has begun really badly.
“Whoever didn’t write, or should have written, or should have edited that [CIA] speech should go today — out, goodbye, done,” she added, referring to Trump's inappropriate bragging of his crowd sizes at the CIA headquarters.
At the same event Trump once again attacked the media.
"I have a running war with the media," President Trump said, calling the press recording him "dishonest."
Co-host Joe Scarborough agreed that this battle should be put to bed.
“Whoever was encouraging him, goading him to keep fighting about the size of the crowds… should be fired today for the sake of America,” Scarborough said.
He then used a boxing metaphor to speak of the turmoil since Trump's inauguration.
"The bell just rang... for the first round," Scarborough said. "We're looking into the crowd and completely overmatched by history."
