Joe Scarborough Demands Producer Change Chyron to Emphasize Trump’s ‘Lies’ About ‘Illegal Voting’ (Mediaite)

During a discussion of President Donald Trump’s fact-challenged, off the rails tax reform speech from Thursday, Joe Scarborough had a problem with the chyron running on his MSNBC show.

“TRUMP MAKES BIZARRE, FALSE CLAIMS,” the Morning Joe chyron blared during a segment on Trump’s claims that (1) Millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election, and (2) Central American migrants in Mexico are being raped at “levels that nobody has ever seen before.”

“Hey Alex,” Scarborough said, addressing executive producer Alex Korson. “Instead of ‘Trump Makes Bizarre, False Claims,’ can you say ‘Trump Lies (Again) About Illegal Voting’.”
