MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough claimed he was blackmailed by President Trump, and he’s got the text messages to prove it. Great story Joe, but nobody’s seen these texts except yourself.
Even CNN, known for its coverage of fake news and even faker National Enquirer cover stories, finds it a “little odd” that the President wanted to receive positive coverage on Scarborough’s show “Morning Joe” in return for keeping negative stories about the MSNBC host out of the tabloids.
CNN’s Brian Stelter and S.E. Cupp aren’t buying Scarborough’s version of the blackmail story.
“I think it will be interesting to see if Joe Scarborough, as he claims, was getting all of these phone calls, these weird phone calls from the White House,” Cupp told a CNN panel on Friday. “You’d imagine a seasoned broadcaster and former political official would record them. If he didn’t, that’s a little odd to me.”
Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show

So, who called who? Scarborough claims that the President called him, but the President disagreed.
MSNBC says they are not planning right now to release the convos btwn Joe and WH officials as proof https://t.co/2ggEKDMMVp

That raised other questions as to why they wouldn’t have reported the story back in April, and why they are still sitting on it.
Get your popcorn, this is going to get good!

CNN’s Brian Stelter and S.E. Cupp are not buying Joe Scarborough’s version of how he was blackmailed by President Trump.
The political commentators found it “a little odd” that, according to the MSNBC anchor, Trump requested positive coverage on his show, “Morning Joe” and returned the favor by keeping negative stories about Scarborough out of the National Enquirer.
