Morning Psycho Responds To Faithful Viewer

A Trump tweet proved to be useful fodder for MSNBC's 'Morning Joe'.

The kids on Morning Joe were gleeful this morning when Orange Shitgibbon tweeted about them again with another derogatory nickname. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski were beside themselves as the hashtag #MorningPsycho climbed up the trending chart at Twitter.


President Trump on Tuesday unloaded a barrage of criticism on "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough, labeling the talk-show host a "psycho" in a pair of tweets in which the president praised Fox News' "Fox & Friends" and also lashed out at a CNN host.

In the tweets, Trump referred to the MSNBC morning show as a "really bad show with low ratings" that would "only get worse," before turning his ire to CNN host Chris Cuomo.
The MSNBC host responded minutes later on his show, displaying a banner with the president's new nickname for him and commenting on Trump's supposed compliments relating to the show's influence.

“Why thank you,” Scarborough, a frequent critic of the president's responded. “I remember you telling [CNN president] Jeff Zucker that you didn’t need CNN, the entire network of CNN, to get elected, but you are saying our show is so powerful that we got you elected. Wow, that’s great!”

“He just can’t quit us,” he added.

Sorry to say but is by far the best of the morning political shows on television. It rightfully has BY FAR the highest ratings, not even close. Morning Psycho (Joe), who helped get me elected in 2016 by having me on (free) all the time, has nosedived, too Angry...

....Dumb and Sick. A really bad show with low ratings - and will only get worse. CNN has been a proven and long term ratings and beyond disaster. In fact, it rewarded Chris Cuomo with a now unsuccessful prime time slot, despite his massive failure in the morning. Only on CNN!
