After Donald Trump appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe (again), he had this to say to hosts Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
"You guys have been supporters," Trump said "And I really appreciate it. And not necessarily supporters, but at least believers. You said there's some potential there."
Then Trump followed up "it was great" seeing them the previous evening. CNN reports that Scarborough and Brzezinski visited Trump's hotel room on Tuesday night while the New Hampshire primary results were rolling in.
Yes folks, I know it's hard to believe, but Donald Trump, who calls the media, "the worst" continues to have them all eating out of his hand.
Between Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and others at Fox News kissing his ring on command, CNN who has gone all in on Trump for months and now even liberal MSNBC under his control, Trump has a local on the cable news outlets.
The vote has nowhere to turn for, pardon the phrase, fair and balanced reporting on the Presidential campaign.
Trump has control of every cable news outlet, he can call into any show and they will quickly put him on the air to try and goose their ratings.
Scarborough has been in the bag for Trump for quite awhile, but he knew that Trump calling him a "supporter" on air was not going to look good.
"When you say supporter, you're obviously talking about how actually ... there were a handful of people who for six months have been saying what happened last night could happen and the rest of the media world has been mocking and ridiculing exactly what he's done," Scarborough said.
No Joe, what he was "obviously talking about" was the fact that he are another in the long line of cable news hosts that have thrown all objectivity out the window for your chance side up to The Donald.
MSNBC also tried to cover their Anchor's bias saying that Scarborough and Brzezinski, "did what anchors are supposed to do -- they interviewed the candidate's senior staff to get background information on their strategy in New Hampshire, and on their campaign's plans moving forward in South Carolina. The staff then invited the hosts to get Mr. Trump’s reaction to the victory."
They can spin it how want, bottom line when a candidate thanks your for being, "a supporter" you are doing it wrong.
