On Monday's Morning Joe on MSNBC, co-host Joe Scarborough laughed at and mocked the mainstream media's treatment of the Jill Stein-Hillary Clinton recount, holding up copies of the Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times.
He asked: "Has Dana Milbank now said ‘Hillary Clinton is threatening to undermine the democracy’ in The Washington Post today?"
"I am sure he will," he said sarcastically.
"This is why, by the way, you’re all going out of business!"
SCARBOROUGH: [laughing] --- I’m sorry, okay hold on – [laughing]…. Hold on, that’s funny! All right, so he's threatening our democracy if he does exactly what she's doing on [sic] September 28th, which he said ‘I'm holding open my options and all legal rights to challenge anything.’ I mean they’re going to try to move this around, but you take what Donald Trump said,
BRZEZINSKI: I got a headache…
SCARBOROUGH: All he did was leave open the option to do exactly what Hillary Clinton is doing. I haven't checked -- have you checked? Is Dana Milbank today –
BRZEZINSKI: You’re giving me a headache, Joe…
SCARBOROUGH: I haven't checked The Washington Post, Dana Milbank writing today. [Turning to Mark Halperin]
SCARBOROUGH: Mark Halperin, because I know he said you were a ‘lackey for Trump’ for saying ‘Trump had a chance to win. Remember, he called you ‘a running dog lackey’ or something like that. I don't know if he was in his hunting hat when he did that, but has Dana Milbank now said ‘Hillary Clinton is threatening to undermine the democracy’ in The Washington Post today?
MARK HALPERIN: I am not sure Dana Milbank is but I don’t think he’s gotten to it yet.
SCARBOROUGH: But I am sure he will…
But when Trump even suggested it, well, ‘Democracy is at risk’ for saying ‘I am going to keep open my options’-- This is why, by the way, you’re all going out of business!
You still don’t get it. You’re still being hypocritical! You can get it wrong in the primary, that’s fine – you can get it wrong in the general election but you keep getting it wrong!
