FAKE NEWS FAIL=> ‘Morning Joe’ Hosts Caught Faking Post-Thanksgiving Banter – The Show Was Taped Wednesday

Fake news fail.

MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were caught faking post-Thanksgiving banter on a show that was actually pre-taped Wednesday.

Mika Brzezinski opened the show by claiming, “Day after Thanksgiving… I’m stuffed,”–only it was Wednesday and Thanksgiving was still a day away.

Via Fox News:

The second segment of Friday’s “Morning Joe” brought the fraudulence to another level, when Brzezinski joked that she forgot to remove the guts from the turkey before cooking it and that is was still a little frozen when she served it.

“Joe didn’t notice. He ate the bag,” Willie Geist said.

Scarborough, still giggling, fired back, “It was good… the game last night made up for it.”

The show did not feature a disclaimer that it was pre-taped and the only noticeable difference to a normal, live version of the show is the disappearance of a subtle “live” graphic that is typically present. The scam continued throughout the remainder of the show when the hosts asked guests, such as MSNBC contributor Rick Tyler, about their Thanksgiving holidays.

The show obviously failed to mention any news that occurred after it taped on Wednesday, such as the deadly terrorist attack at a mosque in Egypt that killed more than 300 people. However, the network’s chyron and news ticker were updated with events that were actually occurring in real time.

Apparently fake news WaPo caught the deception after a Morning Joe viewer contacted the paper tipping them off, asking if MSNBC was airing fake news.

Interestingly, Mika and Joe are constantly attacking President Trump and accusing him of being a liar when these two had no problem completely making up Thanksgiving banter and tricking their viewers into thinking they are actually working on a holiday.

If they are lying about Thanksgiving turkey, then what else are they lying about?
