Coupla things to unpack there.

First of all, is Joe Scarborough defending “Morning Joe” shamelessly latching onto Donald Trump’s coattails by saying people weren’t even watching MSNBC to begin with? Because that seems weird. Does that seem weird to you?

Well, that’s supposed to be the media’s purpose … but it hasn’t really been their de facto purpose for quite a few years now.

And now, Scarborough’s pretending he didn’t.
