Morning Joe mocked President Trump today as “so pathetic and sad” for his apparent inability to quit talking about Hillary Clinton.
It’s been over a year since the 2016 election ended, yet Trump repeatedly invoked his vanquished opponent yesterday during his press conference with the Norwegian prime minister. Joe Scarborough wanted to know if Trump is so preoccupied with Clinton because of her popular vote win, or for some other reason.
“Why is he so obsessed with her?” Scarborough asked.
Mika Brzezinski argued that Trump brings Clinton up so much because he doesn’t have command over the issues in front of him, and he needs something to talk about to fill the empty spaces. Scarborough mostly seemed to agree, and when Mike Barnicle again brought up the popular vote, Scarborough argued that it’s obvious Trump cannot deal with that reality.
“She crushed him over 3 million votes. He lost by 3 million votes, and every day it’s in his way,” said Scarborough. “When he goes to bed at night, he feels inadequate because Hillary Clinton, the worst presidential major candidate of our lifetime, crushed Donald Trump by 3 million, just crushed him.”
Scarborough and Brzezinski continued to banter over this idea, noting it’s a good thing Trump watches Fox & Friends because he wouldn’t be able to cope with the truth if Trump watched Morning Joe instead.
Even though Kellyanne Conway assured CNN’s Chris Cuomo last night that no one in the White House talks about Clinton, the president’s morning tweet begs to differ:
Disproven and paid for by Democrats “Dossier used to spy on Trump Campaign. Did FBI use Intel tool to influence the Election?” @foxandfriends Did Dems or Clinton also pay Russians? Where are hidden and smashed DNC servers? Where are Crooked Hillary Emails? What a mess!
