The Hill reports:
“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough broke down laughing on air Friday over Fox News host Sean Hannity’s coverage of a report that President Trump attempted to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
On his show Thursday night, Hannity first blasted the New York Times report of Trump’s attempted firing, which was blocked by White House counsel Don McGahn, claiming that “The New York Times is trying to distract you.” But toward the end of his broadcast, Hannity said sources had confirmed the report to Fox News.
“Morning Joe” aired a cut of Hannity’s coverage of the report, leading Scarborough to burst out laughing. “Look over there! It’s straight out of the Carville handbook,” Scarborough said, referring to Democratic strategist James Carville. “Look at the car wreck, look at the car wreck! Oh my god, I don’t even know where to begin,” the MSNBC host said.
