Joe Scarborough has just admitted he was all wrong about President Trump. Not in the way that you think though.
The host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe program tweeted today that he had told everyone that last Friday was “the worst day of Donald Trump’s presidency.”
I had said Friday was the worst day of Donald Trump's presidency. I was wrong. It is today.

With events like the congressional investigation into the Russian interference in the election moving forward so quickly, it’s difficult to make such a definitive statement without it being eclipsed almost immediately.
Today, FBI Director James Comey testified under oath that the Justice Department has “no information that supports” Trump’s tweeted allegations that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower. He also confirmed that the FBI was actively investigating collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia over interference in the election.
Trump was also called out for labeling the Comey hearing as “fake news” hours before the hearing began, and for appointing political aides at agencies to spy on his own cabinet members.
Meanwhile, the NY Attorney General hired a new prosecutor specializing in corruption cases to look into abuses of government power; Germany forcibly rejected Trump’s extortionate claims that it owes The U.S. and NATO “vast sums” for defense; North Korea successfully tested a rocket engine that could help their nuclear weapons reach the U.S. mainland; and, the Gallup poll showed that Trump’s approval rating has sunk to 37%, lower than any president at this point in their term since they started presidential popularity polling in 1945.
The way things are going, we can expect a new tweet exactly like this one from Joe every day.
