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.
