The MSNBC commentators Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, who were at the center of a Trump tweet attack two weeks ago, spoke on Stephen Colbert's Late Show last night. They discussed Donald Trump, Jr.'s 11 A.M. tweets releasing his emails that expose his collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

Colbert asked Brzezinski and Scarborough why they thought Trump Jr. tweeted out the emails. "Oh, god, I have no frickin' idea," said Brzezinski, but Scarborough thought it was part of a bigger plan.

"It's been part of a pattern for a long time," he said. "They're trying to confuse the truth with lies. They put it out there and then tell people it's much ado about nothing."

Brzezinski added, "You could argue that they've been trying to undermine the media for many months now, trying to race against time before all the bad stuff comes out about them."

Colbert asks about the "bloody facelift" tweet

As a reminder, on June 29, President Trump tweeted the following about the "Morning Joe" hosts.

"It was no big deal.

Personally, it doesn't bother me one bit," Brzezinski said. "I do think it's very sad for the country that this is where we are."

Brzezinski said that she felt the attack coming because she "knows him well enough" to know what gets under his skin. She had been joking on air about the fake Time magazine cover Trump had in one of his clubs, and she knew it would get a response from Trump.

"He can be played very easily, which is very concerning," she added.

Scarborough pointed out that this wasn't the first time Trump was aggressive toward Brzezinski. "He has this rage about Mika. He did this last summer during the middle of the campaign, too, sent out all of these tweets and he was especially vicious toward Mika."

Scarborough doesn't want to be a Republican anymore

Colbert noted that Scarborough has identified as a Republican and asked what was going on with his party.

"I think it's inexplicable," he said. The Republican party began to betray their core values well before Trump was elected president, says Scarborough.

He referred to the incidents in which Trump "pretended not to know who David Duke was and didn't know what the Ku Klux Klan did," as well the time he claimed Judge Curiel could not be fair because he was Hispanic. "Republicans didn't come out and say 'I could never vote for Donald Trump because he's a racist.'"

"I'm not going to be a Republican anymore. I've got to become an Independent," he then announced.

The Republican Party and Trump Jr.'s tweets

Scarborough pointed out that these tweets are actual proof of the Trump campaign's coordination with a foreign country who sees the United States as an enemy.

"What have you heard from the Republican Party today? Nothing," he said. "There's always silence."
