On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough ripped into Fox News for their irresponsible coverage this weekend.

"You see what some of the people are saying. I've stayed away from criticizing Fox News for years for a lot of different reasons," he said.

"You see the irresponsibility, especially this weekend. Fox News, let me say that they are fomenting a constitutional crisis by suggesting to people watching Fox News in middle America, that someone is attempting a coup. A coup against our government!"

"Let's take an unspoonered break brought to you by Webster's Dictionary," Mike Barnicle said.

"A violent overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group. That's what they're pushing about a fact finding, truth-seeking mission led by a guy who is absolutely -- Bob Mueller, lives his life right down the middle."

"Let us be very clear, that was set up by Donald Trump's own administration. His own Justice Department. His own attorney general. His own assistant attorney general," Scarborough pointed out.

"This is called the rule of law. This wasn't the deep state. This was Donald Trump's state. We're going to get to this in a little bit, but what they are doing could lead to violence. And what they are doing is about as deeply irresponsible as anything I've ever seen."

He also called Fox News "state media." Welcome to the reality-based community, Joe.
