Joe Scarborough Cuts Donald Trump's Mic, Goes To Commercial For Incessant Talking

Joe Scarborough couldn't take Donald Trump's incessant talking so he got away into a commercial break.

The Morning Joe crew on MSNBC, was interviewing Donald Trump after he proposed blocking all Muslims from entering the US, and while Trump was doing his usual filibustering, Joe Scar got annoyed because he wouldn't stop talking - cut his mic and went to commercial.

"You’ve got to let us ask questions, you can’t just talk," Scarborough told Trump.

"Joe, I’m not just talking," Trump responded.

Scarborough quickly jumped in again and said, "You’re not going to keep talking. We will go to break if you keep talking. We’re going to ask you questions."

"Go to break then, Joe," Trump hit back. "All I'm doing is giving you the facts."

The "Morning Joe" host then ordered producers to cut off the interview, repeatedly saying, "Go to break!"

MSNBC cut to a commercial break before returning to the rest of the interview with Trump about his new proposal to ban Muslim immigrants from the U.S.

And let's not kid ourselves. What Trump is saying is reverberating around the world.
