It's been over a year since Donald Trump pulled off the upset win over Hillary Clinton and became the 45th President of the United States in the process. After the president and his team continued to bring up the former Secretary of State has part of their denial in response to the Russian investigation, one host on MSNBC decided to speak out.

MSNBC on Trump

When Donald Trump decided to run for president, the consensus was that his candidacy was nothing more than a joke or an attempt to bring attention to his reality show. Despite the initial skepticism, the former host of "The Apprentice" was able find enough momentum to launch himself to the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention.

Even with Trump's surprising primary success, he was viewed as the underdog in the general election against Hillary Clinton. While this was the case, Trump managed to defeat Clinton, though many have accused the president of being in cahoots with Russia during the hacking of Democratic National Committee. Over the last year, Trump and his team have not let off the gas of criticism as it pertains to their views on Clinton, which was evident during the president's latest defense in response to whether or not he was in collusion with Russia. These issues were highlighted during the January 11 edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC.

During the Thursday morning edition of "Morning Joe," co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough ripped into Donald Trump over his obsession with Hillary Clinton, highlighting the president's comments to reporters the Wednesday afternoon.

"That is so pathetic and sad that he keeps going back to campaign talking about Hillary Clinton," Scarborough said, before making the analogy that Nick Saban, coach of the University of Alabama football team, would not be focusing on Georgia, who he beat earlier this week for the national championship, a year after the victory.

"This is a real problem and a sickness with this guy," Joe Scarborough went on to say, before stating, "I'm not saying mental sickness with this guy, it’s a real problem." Mika Brzezinski then chimed in, saying that Trump is "obsessed" with Clinton and noting "he can handle bullying Hillary Clinton, someone he beat, because that will fill time instead of actually having to talk about the content" because "he knows nothing about policy."
