"Morning Joe" Host Says He Has Texts Proving Trump Told "Yet Another Lie" And People Want The Receipts

"One lesson Trump is teaching all of us is to keep all of our receipts."

Posted on June 30, 2017, at 12:12 p.m. ET

First, a little catch-up: on Thursday, President Trump insulted the hosts of Morning Joe and said Mika Brzezinski "was bleeding badly from a face-lift" when she came to Mar-a-Lago around New Year's Eve.

I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came.. Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!

Photos of Brzezinski from this event show that she was not, in fact, bleeding.

Trump's comments received widespread condemnation across party lines. Still, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended him, saying Trump "fights fire with fire."

On Friday, Scarborough and Brzezinski hit back with a scathing Washington Post op-ed, in which they claimed White House officials once threatened them with a negative National Enquirer piece unless they begged Trump to stop the story.

Mika and Joe's response to @realDonaldTrump is here: a WashPost opinion piece titled "Donald Trump is not well"

"This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas," Scarborough and Brzezinski wrote.

And — of course — Trump responded. He claimed Scarborough "called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no!"

Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show

Scarborough called that claim "yet another lie," and said he has texts and phone records from White House officials to prove it.

Yet another lie. I have texts from your top aides and phone records. Also, those records show I haven't spoken with…

Now, everyone's calling for Scarborough to show the receipts.

@JoeNBC time to post some screenshots then

Joe's got the receipts!

Between Comey and Scarborough, one lesson Trump is teaching all of us is to keep all of our receipts.

And many are saying it's now his moral duty to release them.

What you are describing is blackmail so it is time to name names. If you keep the names secret, you enabling them t…

Be a patriot and release the records @JoeNBC

Show em! Do it. Do something good for humanity.

Still, a lot of people just want to get back to more pressing matters.

h e a l t h c a r e

Joe et al, please focus on healthcare, Muslim Ban, environmental destruction, erosion of civil rights, voter suppre…

In conclusion:

Jesus this is the worst fucking House of Cards episode, ever
