MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” compared President Trump to a “kid pooping his pants” on Thursday morning.
The morning show played audio of Press Secretary Sean Spicer telling reporters during an off-camera gaggle on Wednesday that Trump’s “covfefe” tweet wasn’t a typo and Americans shouldn’t be concerned. “The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant,” Spicer said. Co-hosts and Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, who are engaged to be married, likely talked about the poop comparison prior to the show because Brzezinski made the comparison herself when Scarborough temporarily got shy.
“I think you said something before the show that really kind of like, summed it up. You said… it’s like a kid pooping their pants and then saying, ‘I meant to do that,’” Brzezinski said. Scarborough then embraced the comparison.
“Well yes. It would be like somebody pooping their pants and then people looking at it and saying ‘oh that’s modern art don’t you understand. I am making a statement against Russian aggression in Crimea. And so this is my statement and if you don’t get it then there is something wrong with you not me,’” Scarborough said.
