On Tuesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough attempted to get control of his interview with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump by threatening to go to a commercial break during the interview.
When Trump was told he couldn’t keep talking by Scarborough but proceeded to talk anyway, Scarborough went to the commercial break.
Exchange as follows:
SCARBOROUGH: Alright, Donald
TRUMP: And Joe, one other thing–
SCARBOROUGH: No, no, no. You’ve got to let us ask questions, you can’t just talk. You got to let us ask question, you’re just talking.
TRUMP: I’m not just talking —
SCARBOROUGH: Donald, Donald, Donald, you’re not going to keep talking. We will go to break if you keep talking.
TRUMP: Alright, go to break then, Joe.
SCARBOROUGH: Alright, go to break everyone. Go to break right now. We’ll be right back with more “Morning Joe.”
After commercial, Scarborough resumed his interview with Trump.
