Amid talk of nuclear annihilation, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough took a moment to revel in a Vice News report suggesting that President Trump receives a dossier twice a day containing nothing but images of positive headlines and tweets from around the Internet. That dossier is affectionately known as the “Propaganda Document.”
After a round of hearty guffaws — which included the liberal readings of full passages from the repot — Scarborough offered his reflections and suggested that it might just be better for everyone that Trump regular receives just the good news.
“Would we rather have people deliver Donald Trump a dossier of bad news every day? We know that never ends well,” said Scarborough. “As we’ve said before, we think it’s in America’s best interests and the best interests of the word that Donald Trump doesn’t watch Morning Joe every morning, because it makes him so angry. If watching Fox Friends and reading happy stories, and seeing pictures where he looks powerful keeps Donald Trump from going on the warpath maybe that’s what the doctor ordered.”
The segment then devolved into an extended bit of mockery, with show regular Mike Barnicle handing Scarborough some faux-flattering documents.
It’s not the first time Scarborough has zinged his morning show rival. In the past he warned that Trump might tweet about martians coming to Earth if he watched Fox & Friends at the wrong time. The popular MSNBC host also has a long and famously colorful feud with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
