Joe Scarborough lambasted President Donald Trumps administration and his attorney Rudy Giuliani in a lengthy tirade on Monday’s Morning Joe.

“This is the most corrupt administration in the history of our lifetime, certainly over the first year and a half” the MSNBC host stated in a 10-minute segment. “[Giuliani] will tell you he’s been knighted by the Queen of England.”

Among the recent controversies involving White House officials that Scarborough recalled were the recently resigned Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt‘s long list of scandals, as well as controversies like former Health Secretary Tom Price‘s use of taxpayer money to pay for private jets.

Scarborough also mentioned Trump University’s corrupt and fraudulent practices, Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohens payments in hush money to porn star Stormy Danielsand the three indictments that have been made as part of the Russia probe. Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafortwho was recently sentenced to prison for obstruction of justice among other charges, also received a mention.

The MSNBC host then went on to respond to Giuliani’s latest remarks about the Russia investigation, which the former New York City mayor called “corrupt,” by defending special counsel Robert Mueller. 


“We certainly know that Robert Mueller is not corrupt,” Scarborough explained. “We certainly know he is a marine, a war hero, a guy who [unlike] Donald Trump didn’t skip out on serving this country, claiming deferments and bone spurs.”

After Giuliani insulted Daniels last month for her appearance, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski and Donny Deutsch, a frequent guest of the show, both slammed Giuliani, calling him “misogynistic.”

Trump had previously attacked Brzezinski for her looks in a vicious tweet in which he claimed she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”
