Typically, when presidents leave office, they disappear for quite a bit. Barack Obama used his newfound time to travel. George W. Bush enjoys painting. Donald Trump, though, essentially picked up where he left off.Devastated by his Twitter ban, Trump sends out multiple media statements each week. Monday’s message was a slam on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The hosts were quick to mock the statement during their show.
Trump’s statement read, “Will Morning Joe be canceled? He and Mika’s ratings are very low—they are having an extremely hard time finding an audience to listen to the Fake News they spurn. Losing them would be very sad—hope it doesn’t happen! On another front, looks like Unjoy Reid, the racist commentator on MSDNC (MSNBC), is toast. Her stupidity is only surpassed by her absolute lack of television persona. She never had it, and never will. The only thing she’s good at is spewing racist hate but obviously, no one is listening!”
“We do spurn Fake News,” Mika Brzezinski responded, pointing out Trump’s improper usage of the word.
After that part was read on air, Scarborough gleefully remarked, “I never heard him talk about spurn, using that has a word. I don’t use the word, it’s new vocabulary! Secondly, he can’t quit us!”
