Donald Trump hasn’t been tweeting as often the past week, and the reason is because he is no longer watching MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
Trump has repeatedly tweeted about a particular subject soon after it was discussed on the MSNBC show hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski.
In one such incident earlier this month, Scarborough questioned whether chief strategist Stephen Bannon was “calling the shots” in the White House.
Less than an hour later, Trump tweeted that, “I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.”
I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!

Scarborough and Brzezinski have previously referred to the president’s tendency to watch the program.
“Even when he claims he’s not watching the show and just sending out nasty tweets about it, we’ll look at the camera — Donald, we know you’re not watching the show, but how are you doing?” Scarborough said on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert last week.
