Trump So Pleased With DACA Dem Deal He’s Even ‘Hate Watching Morning Joe

Donald Trump is living his best life.

After cutting a deal with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and provide relief for Hurricane Harvey (which cut out his Republican colleagues), The president was basking in press adulation.

Sources across the media said Trump was ebullient, ringing Democratic lawmakers to express his approval with the coverage.

Axios reported that Trump was in such a good mood that he even turned the channel to enemy territory — Morning Joe. Trump reportedly was “hate watching” the morning show to see how they would cover it.

“Trump was in Cloud 9 yesterday,” said Axios co-founder Jim VandeHei during a hit on Morning Joe, Friday. “He was so jazzed that he watched your show, watched others, saw people praising him, got on the phone with Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, was all jacked up an bragging about the coverage. Nancy Pelosi asked him to tweet something positive about DACA and he does it, it’s like a movie and the guy is just loving the last 24 hours.”

Morning Joe has often savaged Trump with hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski regularly questioning his mental fitness or calling his presidency a failure. The pair did have praise for the DACA Dem Deal — but Scarborough hedged, noting that Trump was liable to screw it all up by watching Fox & Friends and firing off a dumb tweet.
