MSNBC’s Joe and Mika bash Trump for ‘humiliating America’ with his angry tweets

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski reacted in shock and dismay after President Donald Trump complained that he wasn't receiving enough credit for military gains.
The president griped about news coverage in a series of early morning tweets, and insisted he had not tipped off Syria and Russia to a planned missile attack, and the "Morning Joe" hosts were embarrassed for him.
"This is a guy who responds to cable news, who responds to hearing that he's made the same mistake that Barack Obama made," Scarborough said. "He immediately tweets something out, and the commander-in-chief is saying, 'Where is our thank you, America?' Instead of the commander-in-chief thanking the men and the women who put their lives on the line every day across the world, who have done an extraordinary job with the help of commanders in the field and generals, helping fight ISIS."
Scarborough said the president's tweet was shameful, and his premise was ridiculous.
"The president is a fool if he believes that ISIS has been cleared out of that region," he said. "And the president is a fool if he believes ISIS won't come right back if he keeps announcing future military troop movements."
Scarborough said the president's recent comments were "deplorable" -- and Brzezinski said Trump was an international embarrassment and a national security risk
"On the world stage, this president is humiliating America -- no question," Brzezinski said. "He's been doing it for months, but we're headed into a situation where he has humiliated this country on the world stage and he's going to hurt us."
