Does Joe Scarborough get "under the skin" of Donald Trump?

Seldom do I ever watch a full episode of Joe and Mika and Gang, but I do enjoy watching the intro to his show. He is always exposing Donald Trump. "I know you are watching, Donald", he has said.

Does Trump really watch Joe and Mika? (Well, he did attack them on Twitter yesterday.) Does he really switch off his favorite FOX Morning show to see what Joe Scarborough is saying about him?

Is he focused? Or is he distracted?

I usually switch over to John and Alysin after Joe's initial attack. They talk about other things that are happening in the world. They have been more thorough on coronavirus reporting, in my opinion.

But, it is interesting to watch the daily expose. Scarborough usually has video to back up his arguments against Trump.

Is this a real feud? Is Trump incapable of ignoring this type of reporting from Scarborough? Or is it that he likes to dish it out, but he can't take it? He calls everyone names. But, he cannot handle the least bit of criticism or negative reporting. He obsesses about it.

America. What a country!

1. Joe knows Trump is thin skinned and he knows how to troll him.

I'm not sure exactly why. My guess is Joe wants to save the Republican party, not that he favors Democrats.

2. Trump has been accusing Scarborough of killing his former campaign office worker,

demanding Florida authorities reopen the investigation, or the "cold case" as Trump calls it, and charge Scarborough with murder.

6. Mika Needs To Practice What She Preaches.

There is a bit of Karma at play here. First...she and Joe were very much on The Menace's side in the beginning and she stepped all over HRC every which way she could. Secondly, about the intern story...Mika has no problem with jumping all over men with no more proof than what there is for this story. There is the interview with JB and then there was the way she and Susan Del Percio ambushed Michael Wolfe on that show because of allegations someone made against him, which he tried to deny but wasn't really given a chance. Nothing came of the allegations.

11. And there is also the fact that she

could be considered a "homewrecker". They were both married, and had an affair for years before getting divorces then marrying each other.

What always gets left out of the dead intern story is that the circumstances were far more suspicious than the circumstances around Chandra Levy's death, which happened at about the same time. But the media made a frenzy about that. Few have heard of Lori Klausutis, but everyone got second-by-second coverage of the Levy disappearance.

Two congressmen, one smeared and left with a ruined career, one ignored and given a 7-figure tv career. One D, one R. Coincidence?

4. Since Joe spent all of 2016 with his head up Donnie Dollhands ass

I'd say he's already been under his skin.

9. Joe and Mika probably won't be hosting those 20-minute open mic sessions for the POS this year.

You remember, JoeScar? Back when you and the little missus would allow Trump to call in any time he wanted, and ramble on unchallenged on whatever silly subject he chose to talk about that day. Trump would always spend the entire (free political ad) time just making up stupid shit and mercilessly attacking Hillary, all while you and the entire MJ crew yucked it up with the lying scumbag.

7. He watches the show. Sometimes he tweets about the same thing they discuss minutes later. He is

such a thin skinned loser.

8. Sometimes it seems like Scarborough tries to help trump.

Telling him what he is doing wrong. I say let trump figure it out on his own. Tell us more of what Joe Biden is doing right.

10. Recommended.

Trump has a compulsive (repulsive) need to watch the show daily. This is a good thing.

12. I would guess that MF45

flips channels and if they're not talking about him, moves on to the next channel.
