Over the last 24 hours, the biggest story to dominate the news cycle has been the press conference led by Donald Trump. In its aftermath, the press conference and the president have been criticized, which was evident on MSNBC Friday morning.

MSNBC on Trump

During the 2016 presidential election, hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, were criticized for having at least a cordial relationship with Donald Trump. Over time, that relationship deteriorated, which has morphed into a war of words and feud since the inauguration.

The MSNBC hosts have lashed out at Trump on an almost daily basis, while officially banning Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway from the show earlier this week. As seen on the February 17 edition of "Morning Joe," the hosts had a lot to say about the aforementioned press conference.

After playing various clips from the press conference in question, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough didn't hold back his thoughts. "That would have been a really funny hour or so of television,” Scarborough said, before adding, "If he weren’t President of the United States." Not stopping there, Scarborough referred to it as "one of the most chaotic, rambling press conferences anybody has ever seen," while saying Trump was "losing grip on reality."

While Joe Scarborough, and many others, were critical of what went down, the MSNBC host thought it was a victory for supporters of the former host of "The Apprentice." "They were laughing," he said, while making sure to clarify, "they weren’t laughing at Donald Trump, but they were laughing at the media." Panel guest Willie Geist went on to label Trump's statements as "verifiably false," but noted that his base doesn't seem to care.

Despite the backlash against him from the media and his political opponents, Donald Trump doesn't look to be slowing down or changing his tune anytime soon. Trump has increased his use of the term "fake news" to describe the mainstream media, regardless of the facts and evidence used by the press to debunk his questionable claims and comments.

The president took to Twitter on Friday morning and praised radio show host Rush Limbaugh for his support of the press conference, while once again bashing the "fake media," making his feud with the press a daily routine, especially on his social media account.
