Got a minute? After criticizing Trump, Morning Joe hosts say they got calls explaining how to make hit piece go away … states defy Trump voter commission … and everything in US politics. By Tom McCarthy
A day after Donald Trump insulted Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Twitter, they told a story on air about how White House aides, they said, had called to pressure them to lay off Trump.
The tabloid National Enquirer, which is published by a friend of Trump, had been harassing Brzezinski’s family for a story, the pair said. Trump’s aides said the Enquirer would go away if Scarborough apologized to Trump, the co-host said.
