MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough cut to commercial in the middle of a phone interview with Donald Trump on Monday morning when the Republican presidential candidate would not stop talking to let Scarborough ask a question.
“You’ve got to let us ask questions, you can’t just talk,” Scarborough told Trump.
“Joe, I’m not just talking,” Trump responded.
Scarborough quickly jumped in again and said, “You’re not going to keep talking. We will go to break if you keep talking. We’re going to ask you questions.”
“Go to break then, Joe,” Trump hit back. “All I’m doing is giving you the facts.”
The “Morning Joe” host then ordered producers to cut off the interview, repeatedly saying, “Go to break!”
MSNBC cut to a commercial break before returning to the rest of the interview with Trump about his new proposal to ban Muslim immigrants from the U.S.
