Morning Joe to Trump: "Why do you keep lying?"

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough bit back at Trump on Twitter Friday morning for repeatedly "lying", this time about an alleged call from Scarborough asking Trump to stop a National Enquirer article from running:

  • Trump tweet: "Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show."
  • Scarborough's reply: "Yet another lie. I have texts from your top aides and phone records. Also, those records show I haven't spoken with you in many months. ... Why do you keep lying about things that are so easily disproven? What is wrong with you?"
  • Timing: Their bitter exchange took place just minutes after Scarborough wrapped his Friday segment, in which he and co-host Mika Brzenzski addressed Trump's Thursday attacks against them. "We're okay – the country's not," said Scarborough.
