S.E. Cupp and Brain Stelter, famed political commentators, are suspicious of Joe Scarborough’s claim that Trump has been using… sigh, the National Enquirer as a means of blackmail. Yup, there it is.
Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe has claimed that Trump would call him and ask for positive coverage on his program and in exchange… President Donald Trump would kill negative stories about Scarborough that were set to run in The National Enquirer.
Just when I thought I had heard it all, folks!
So the White House has come forward and say it’s JOE who, actually, is coming to them asking them to make the negative stories “go away”…
“You’d imagine a seasoned broadcaster and former political official would record [phone calls with Trump],” Cupp opined. “If he didn’t, that’s a little odd to me.”
“I’m wondering also why he sat on it for so long,” she said.
Stelter seemed to agree with her assessment, stating, “I had the same questions for NBC.”
“This seems like a disturbing thing that was happening in April, why wouldn’t you tell your audience while it was happening?” he asked. “And there’s no comment from NBC.”
