Morning Joe Wishes 'Media' Would Have Talked To Trump Voters?

Media? What about your show, Joe Scarborough?

This is really rich. Mika Brezinski reads Michael Moore's post-election Facebook post aloud this morning, and Joe Scarborough whines that he was right all along.

...Michael Moore got it better than anybody else this entire campaign and he did something extraordinary. He did something that we all need to do as Americans that live more and more in our clusters. We live around people who think like us, who vote like us, who worship like us or don't worship at all, but Michael Moore -- actually Michael Moore is talking to Donald Trump supporters and having a conversation with them and understanding them and explaining why they shouldn't vote for Donald Trump. It was an extraordinary exercise. If the media had done it, Hillary Clinton may have won.

The media, Joe? The media?

Interesting how every once in a while, your show actually gets out of New York City. You go on the road to the midwest, where you are in proximity to actual midwestern voters. You could interview them, find out what they like about Donald Trump, what makes them tick, etc. You took your show to Iowa to "cover" the caucuses, didn't you Joe?

MSNBC co-hosts Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist will return to Java Joes CoffeeHouse in Des Moines, Iowa for a special Iowa caucus edition of “Morning Joe” on Monday, Feb. 1 and Tuesday, Feb. 2. “Morning Joe” will also broadcast a special afternoon edition on caucus day.

Guests will include Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA); Fmr. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA); Gov. Terry Branstad (R-IA); Tom Brokaw, NBC News; Chuck Todd, Moderator of “Meet the Press,” Host of “MTP Daily,” and NBC News Political Director; and Nicolle Wallace, former White House Communications Director.

So when your show was in Iowa, you sat in a Des Moines coffeehouse and talked to Chuck Todd, Tom Brokaw, and Nicolle Wallace. But the media should have listened to the Trump voters.

I know exactly why YOU didn't, Joe. You were afraid they would tell you Obama is the real racist or something even more embarrassing to your party.
