'Morning Joe' Host Believes Erratic Trump Behavior a Sign Something Big Is Coming

MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said President Trump's destructive and erratic behavior this week appears to be a signal that something major is about to happen.

“There’s a lot of chatter that something big, a shoe must be about to drop,” Scarborough said. “Because Donald Trump usually seems to freak out and start spinning out of control like this, attacking CNN, attacking us — oh, by the way, good morning, Donald — attacking everybody in sight right before a shoe is about to drop.”

He noted that Drudge Report, which is often on Trump's media diet, has been suggesting a "bombshell" is coming.

Associated Press Washington bureau chief Julie Pace believes that revelation will involve Michael Flynn.
