"He'll get money from the Saudis. He'll make money from Putin when he gets out that's why he's been Putin's lapdog. Donald Trump is all about money," the 'Morning Joe' co-host said on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.'
MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough has a bold political prediction: he doesn't think President Donald Trump will run for re-election in 2020.
"I don't think Donald Trump's going to run for re-election. He didn't want to be elected president, he didn't think he would be elected president. He didn't even think he was going to get the Republican nomination. He's going to cash out," he explained during an appearance with co-host and fiancee Mika Brzezinski on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night.
"He'll get money from the Saudis. He'll make money from Putin when he gets out, that's why he's been Putin's lapdog. Donald Trump is all about money," Scarborough added. The duo had been discussing potential candidates when Scarborough made the comment.
To that end, Brzezinski said she believes former Vice President Joe Biden could run, as could former Secretary of State John Kerry. "I love Kamala Harris," she added, referring to the Democratic California senator.
Colbert also asked the duo, who are frequent targets of the president, how they handle his "nicknames" and insults such as "crazy Mika" and "psycho Joe." "You laugh at it," Scarborough explained. Colbert joked that he was jealous and wanted a Trump nickname as well.
The two also slammed Trump for his response to the disappearance and likely murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, calling it "pathetic" and "a complete embarrassment."
"We now are basically selling out our interests nationwide, our values, who we are as a nation," Scarborough added.
Khashoggi was considered a dissident to Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, with whom Trump has previously been friendly. Trump later said he promises "severe punishment" for the culprit.
The two were on The Late Show to promote the re-release of Brzezinski's 2011 book, Know Your Value.
He seems to have The Donald confused with the Clintons.
And I think Joe is an idiot.
I gather he is very strange, claiming to be a Republicans back when, but doing PMSNBC now?
Unless Trump becomes incapacitated, I think he will run again.
Yeah, murdered his intern when he was in Congress too.
You dont have to just think it. You can confidently shout it from the rooftops.
His brain is between Mika’s legs. So is hers.
Pure projection on stupid Joe’s part. His last working brain cell died long ago.
Joe either needs to get off meth or take more of it because his current dosage isn’t working.
Probably his/her biggest problems. All that hollow echoing from between her legs could be disconcerting. Like screaming wow baby In An empty stadium. The echo and reverberations has the be a awful thing.
Scarborough has lost his mind - that is the kindest thing I can say about him.
How ‘bout “Craven Colbert?”
"Hey, help me find my keys and we can drive out of here"
Why are any of these clowns still on the air????
Being blackmailed for a murder might do that to you.
This guy is certifiably delusional. There are so many absurdities in his comment that it’s not really worth enumerating them. I recommend the following motto for slow witted Joe - “Too stupid to have a have a clue. Too arrogant to be embarrassed”.
“If your heart is in your dreams
No request is to extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do...”
Just watched the run-up to the 2016 election, with all the MSM laughing at the idea of Trump winning. Colbert’s there, making a fool of himself, as they all did.
