MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough broke down in a fit of laughter on Friday over Fox News host Sean Hannity’s coverage of a report that President Trump attempted to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
The “Morning Joe” host couldn’t contain his laughter as he commented on Hannity’s Thursday night show where the Fox News propagandist blasted the New York Times report of Trump’s attempted firing, which the president reportedly backed off of after White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign, claiming that “The New York Times is trying to distract you.”
“Our sources, and I’ve checked in with many of them, they’re not confirming that tonight,” Hannity said. “And the president’s attorney dismissed the story and says ‘nope, no comment, we’re not going there tonight,'” he added. But…
Toward the end of his broadcast, Hannity admitted that sources had indeed confirmed the New York Times report to Fox News.
“All right, so we have sources tonight just confirming to Ed Henry that, maybe, yeah, Donald Trump wanted to fire the special counsel for conflict. Does he not have the right to raise those questions?” Hannity asked.
“You know, we’ll deal with this tomorrow,” he said, before pivoting to a video of a car crash in Arizona.
“Morning Joe” aired a cut of Hannity’s coverage of the report, leading Scarborough to burst out laughing.
“Look over there! It’s straight out of the Carville handbook,” Scarborough said, referring to Democratic strategist James Carville.
“Look at the car wreck, look at the car wreck! Oh my god, I don’t even know where to begin,” the MSNBC host said.
