Watch Joe Scarborough Slam Trump’s Witch Hunt Claims, Complete With Sound Effects
Joe Scarborough made some sound effects on “Morning Joe” Thursday to slam President Donald Trump, after Trump called the Russia investigation a witch hunt.
Trump labeled the probe one of the biggest witch hunts in history on June 6 — a claim Scarborough has often taken issue with. (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Attacks ICE For Doing It’s Job, Pivots To Family Separation)
….The greatest Witch Hunt in political history!

‘Morning Joe‘ opened the show by playing a clip of GOP Congressman Chris Collins, who was arrested for insider trading Wednesday, as he spoke at the 2016 Republican national convention.
“That is Congressman Chris Collins just over two years ago at the Republican national convention. Today he joins this list of people charged with or pleading to crimes,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said.
She then put a tweet up on screen from Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake showing the Trump officials who have been charged with or are pleading to crimes.
List of people charged with/pleading to crimes:
-Trump’s 2nd campaign manager
-Trump’s deputy campaign manager
-Trump’s national security adviser
-Trump’s foreign policy adviser
-Trump’s 1st campaign manager (battery charges later dropped)
-Trump’s first congressional endorser

“Trump’s second campaign manager, Trump’s deputy campaign manager, Trump’s campaign foreign policy adviser, Trump’s first campaign manager and now Trump’s first congressional endorser and member of his transition team,” he said.
“Hey, I’m no special counsel, but it kind of feels like there’s a pattern here and maybe, maybe one of these witch hunts where you just walk out of your front door and all the witches are just landing in your front lawn,” Scarborough said. “Right there in the front yard,” Brzezinski replied.
Scarborough then started laughing and made the sound of witches landing on the lawn before moving on with the show.
