MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski feel that Vladimir Putin has learned the truth about President Trump: he’s unpredictable.
“There are times when that unpredictability can actually work,” Scarborough said on Thursday morning. “How fascinating that Vladimir Putin, if he thought he was going to influence politics in America, it hasn’t turned out that way… Donald Trump has embarrassed Vladimir Putin now twice on the international stage.”
He continued: “One with the strikes in Syria… and then Tillerson yesterday going over there and showing no respect whatsoever. That’s not part of an inside game that Vladimir Putin would ever be a part of.”
Trump’s tough stance on Syria isn’t exactly what Putin would have presumably expected based on campaign rhetoric. On Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson met with the Russian President for nearly two hours, but the two men appeared unable to agree on the facts involving the deadly chemical weapons assault on Syrian civilians or Russian interference in the American election, according to the New York Times.
Scarborough joked that Putin at least has conservative commentator Ann Coulter “on his side.” “But other than that, it’s not working out very well for Putin.”
“Oh wait… he’s got [Fox News host] Sean Hannity,”Scarborough continued.
Hannity and Scarborough have a long history of taking jabs at each other, so the latest beef is nothing new. However, Hannity considers himself an America patriot and Scarborough suggesting he sides with Putin could take things to a new level.
