Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough took a victory lap Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” showing a montage of clips of their analysis predicting the rise of Donald Trump.
Then Brezezinski and Scarborough are back, just one day after the escalator ride that changed the presidential race.
The clips include Huffington Post senior political editor Sam Stein saying Trump’s campaign wasn’t serious. (The online news outlet briefly covered Trump’s campaign in the entertainment section, their bid to derail his campaign.)
The hosts have been repeatedly criticized for their allegedly cozy relationship with Trump while other mainstream media outlets and Washington pundits kept trying to predict the real estate mogul’s downfall. (The hosts have denied this, including a 10-minute rant by Scarborough on Feb. 19.)
“So what do you do after you dunk the ball and shatter the back board?” Scarborough asked. “Do you just walk off the court, Willie?”
“That’s what Shaq used to do,” Willie Geist replied.
