MSNBC’s Morning Joe talked a great deal about Donald Trump‘s latest primary sweep today, and at one point, Joe Scarborough saw it fit to both call out his critics and pat himself on the back for totally calling the mogul’s rise.
For the past few months, Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have both been accused of having a cozy relationship with Trump, as well as being in the tank for him based on their coverage and interviews. On today’s show, Scarborough talked with Mike Barnicle about how Trump’s latest triumphs show that his supporter ceiling has exceeded media expectations yet again, and that he was one of the few people to not underestimate the probability of his success.
Brzezinski tried to rein him in, but Scarborough declared, “I hate to say it. We were right, everybody else was wrong. Everybody else was stupid, and they were wrong every single day. We were right.”
“‘Oh, you’re in the tank for Trump,’” Scarborough went on to say, addressing the critics. “How about this, let’s put this on a bumper sticker. ‘We’re in the tank…for truth.’”
