MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Calls Trump Campaign a “Scam” and a “Marketing Ploy”!

Once upon a time, not too long ago, Donald Trump counted MSNBC’s Morning Joe and its hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski among his most faithful friends (if not supporters). Over the winter Donald Trump had been a mainstay on Morning Joe and the show’s hosts often helped defend Mr. Trump from his detractors to his left and especially his right. The tables have turned (apparently) after the two sides seemingly fell out earlier this summer, and the relationship has now deteriorated to the point that Joe Scarborough is openly calling the Trump campaign for the White House a “SCAM.”

On Tuesday’s episode of Morning Joe cohost Brzezinski mentioned that she saw signs that were leading her to believe that the campaign was actually some kind of prank dreamed up by Mr. Trump. Joe Scarborough quickly cut in to double down on Brzezinksi’s observation by calling the campaign a “scam” and a “marketing” ploy.

Trending: Science is Settled

Scarborough also brought up recent comments from Trump’s friend Ari Emanuel (brother to Chicago politico Rahm Emanuel) who said that he believes Mr. Trump is simply pulling the same kind of stunt that Andy Kaufman might have 30 years ago. Could this entire campaign really be an act? What does it say about the 2016 presidential campaign that serious pundits are actually wondering this just a few months out from Election Day?

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
