On Thursday, a panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program mocked President Donald Trump for threatening to revoke NBC’s broadcast license even though the network isn’t required to have one.
Trump lashed out at the network Wednesday after NBC News reported that Trump had requested a 10-fold increase in the U.S. nuclear stockpile, prompting Secretay of State Rex Tillerson to call him a “moron.”
“With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” Trump wrote.
This morning, the Morning Joe panel couldn’t help but laugh at the threat.
“To be clear, the networks themselves do not hold federal licenses, their individual television stations do,” MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski pointed out. “Right? Only a moron would think that anyhow.”
