‘Morning Joe’ Hosts Insist They Ask Trump ‘Tough Questions’
SCARBOROUGH: "I hope you understand my point. One of our frustrations is people say why don’t you ask him the tough questions? We do. We have the transcripts. They’re online, it doesn’t matter. Like for instance the Muslim protests supposedly in new Jersey. We were around the set saying it never happened, there’s no evidence, what’s your evidence. Kept going after him five times “I just remember I saw it on TV.” Where did you see it? “It’s everywhere.” You do that five, six, seven times. We could spend 30 minutes in an interview asking the same question and getting the same answered."
BRZEZINSKI: "I asked him how Mexico was going to pay for the wall and I told him “Do not say believe me, believe me is not an answer. How? How? How?” That would be an intense, tough question say we’re not."
