WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 3

New York Times Reporter Shares Picture of Joe Scarborough at Trump’s NYE Party

scarborough trumpThe feud between MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough and other reporters flared up again Monday when a picture of Scarborough attending Donald Trump‘s New Year’s Eve party was posted to Twitter.

Scarborough took exception Sunday when incoming New York Times reporter Sopan Deb tweeted that he had “partied” with Trump. Scarborough insisted in a lengthy tweetstorm that he had only stopped by Trump’s party in street clothes so he could discuss a possible interview. The argument angered Scarborough enough that he even brought it up on the show Monday.

The debate took on an interesting turn Monday when Deb’s colleague Maggie Haberman tweeted pictures of the event sent to her by an attendee, including one of Scarborough and his co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Deb responded by immediately needling the MSNBC host.

Haberman did back Scarborough’s account on one point, reporting that he was not in formal wear and left early.

UPDATE (1:00 PM ET): Scarborough has responded to Haberman’s tweet with an angry rant against her, Deb, and The New York Times.
