Joe Scarborough Mocks Trump For Pitting Three Stooges Legal Team Against ‘Cyborg’ Mueller
On Wednesday, Morning Joe mocked the motley crew of lawyers President Trump has chosen to help him deal with special counsel Robert Mueller and his ongoing investigations into Russia.
After a review of Michael Cohen‘s legal troubles, Mike Barnicle suggested that Trump is at a disadvantage since Rudy Giuliani, Ty Cobb, and ex-White House lawyer John Dowd don’t know what Mueller has on Trump, and the president won’t be honest with them. As he talked with Joe Scarborough about how that could be devastating for Trump’s legal defense, Mika Brzezinski also brought up recent indications that Trump’s lawyers don’t even have the security clearance necessary to deal the issues at hand.
That caused Scarborough break out laughing and make a reference to the The Three Stooges.
“So the law firm of Larry, Mo and Curly…and counsel Rudy, can’t actually find out what the truth is.”
After he stopped chuckling, Scarborough got serious and said that Trump apparently cannot assemble a serious defense team despite the fact that Mueller’s investigation could threaten the presidency.
“Bob Mueller, I have a friend who says ‘he’s a cyborg. He keeps coming at you,'” Scarborough said, “and he literally has this motley crew thats never played in this arena before.
