Joe Scarborough defended Donald Trump on Tuesday, saying the president was correct for asking why his predecessor, Barack Obama, did not do more to address the Russian threat to the 2016 election.
“That’s a very legitimate question to ask,” Scarborough said on “Morning Joe.” “I get far less problems with the president of the United States asking that question than saying, ‘Barack Obama was crawling around in Trump Towers and tapping my phones.'”
Scarborough said it probably wasn’t the best use of the president’s megaphone to spend time on the issue, but declined to back down from his position.
“That’s something that you get your press secretary to go out and say,” said Scarborough. “It is a legitimate question.”
