Morning Joe Declares ‘Best Day’ of Trump Presidency: ‘Good News’ for All Americans He Didn’t Conspire with Russia

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough praised Robert Mueller‘s findings that there was no collusion between Donald Trump‘s campaign and Russia, calling the special counsel conclusion “good news” for all Americans today.

“If the appointment of Robert Mueller was the worst day of his presidency, the release of Robert Mueller’s report was the best day of his presidency,” Scarborough began on the morning after Attorney General Barr released a summary of Mueller’s probe into Russia and Trump. “So that’s a big headline.”

“But also another big headline: It is good news,” he added, a comment his co-host and wife Mika Brzezinski agreed with. “Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike, it is good news.”

Scarborough continued:

“That the president of the United States did not conspire with Russia to influence the 2016 election and we know, because unlike Donald Trump and the right-wing hacks that were chopping Robert Mueller to pieces for two years, we know that Robert Mueller actually is an honorable man and we can put our heads on the pillows tonight and know… that the president of the United States did not collude with Vladimir Putin and Russia.”

The Washington Post‘s David Ignatius suggested the good news is “the process that was put in place with this investigation continued to the end” and found “there was not a conspiracy to conclude.”

As Trump took a victory lap on Twitter this morning, he specifically tweeted a headline on his lack of collusion with Russia from MNSBC — the cable news network who pushed the possibility of collusion the hardest.
