Donald Trump's first year in office has resulted in one of the most controversial starts to a presidency in recent American history. While looking at the current state of the White House, MSNBC hosts and panel guests had some harsh words [VIDEO] for the commander in chief.

MSNBC on Trump

Since the early days of his campaign for president [VIDEO], Donald Trump has come under fire for his controversial style and reckless rhetoric. While not initially viewed as a serious threat for the office, the former host of "The Apprentice" surprised many by locking up the GOP nomination on his way to shocking victory over Hillary Clinton.

Since then, the White House has played fast and loose with the facts, often being hit with evidence that debunks their claims and agenda, which has triggered the president to label anything he doesn't agree with as "fake news." After the Republican tax bill was passed through Congress, Trump held a congratulatory meeting with his Cabinet where he received uncomfortable praise and a prayer from those in the room. This behavior is unlike any other seen in the White House, which was highlighted during a December 22 segment on "Morning Joe" on MSNBC.

During the Friday edition of "Morning Joe" MSNBC, co-hosts Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, and several panel guests broke down Donald Trump's unique administration filled with untruths and down-rights lies, while targeting many Republicans for cowering to the president.

"I never imagined it would be as bad as it is," Joe Scarborough stated.

"That’s what autocrats do," Joe Scarborough said of Donald Trump, pointing to "the big lie, the constant lie." "You keep telling lies long enough, pretty soon they can’t discern between truths and lies," he added. The discussion then shifted to whether or not the president would fire Russian investigation special counsel Robert Mueller, which Scarborough predicted wouldn't happen, but instead, "they just want to bring his support down so when the indictments continue, then he’ll be discredited.

Trump's Twilight Zone

Network contributor Donny Deutsch then went on to compare the Donald Trump presidency to "The Twilight Zone." "There's a fascinating Twilight Zone that sets up a town that martians from another planet land and all they have to do is screw with electricity and the lights and people will turn on each other," Deutsch said, referencing the historic episode "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street" of the hit show written by Rod Serling, before comparing the program to what is taking place in the White House under its current leadership.
