Trump’s latest Twitter attack on MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski reveals blackmail by president.
On Friday, MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough made the explosive claim that three of President Donald Trump’s most senior White House aides “warned” the couple that the tabloid The National Enquirer would publish dirt on them unless they “begged” the president to intervene.
The Morning Joe co-hosts declined to name the multiple White House officials involved in this bizarre, ongoing feud. But one of those “top White House staff members” was senior advisor and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, two White House officials confirmed to The Daily Beast.
Scarborough made similar allegations on his MSNBC program on Friday morning. “We got a call that, ‘Hey, the National Enquirer is going to run a negative story against you guys’…And they said, ‘If you call the president up, and you apologize for your coverage, then he will pick up the phone and basically spike this story,” Scarborough recalled.“I had three people at the very top of the administration calling me,” the host continued. “The calls kept coming, and kept coming.”
“That’s blackmail,” another Morning Joe panelist, off-camera and shocked, added. More from the Daily Beast here.
