Joe Scarborough is ticked that Donald Trump and his press secretary, Sean Spicer, spent any time talking about the crowd size at Friday’s inauguration.

So he, and co-host Mika Brzezinski, spent the entire two hours of Morning Joe on Monday talking about how much it doesn’t matter and how the administration shouldn’t be talking about it.

The media still doesn’t seem to get the fact that by obsessing over how much Donald Trump and his minions obsess, just feeds into the issues that got Trump elected in the first place. Instead of focusing on policy and things that actually matter — like President Trump’s first executive orders he signed on Friday perhaps? — news shows are talking about the stupid stuff Donald Trump wants them to talk about. Crowd size.

If the media actually cared about getting their reputation back and America’s trust back, they might decide to do they’re job and stop with the hair-on-fire screeching over nothings, but they don’t and so they won’t.

If news outlets and shows like Morning Joe keep this up, they can thank themselves for helping to hand Donald Trump a second term.
