"Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough told Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night that he isn't optimistic about Donald Trump's presidency lasting four years.
"There are so many people, Republicans and Democrats alike, that all agree - this pace just can't be sustained," the MSNBC personality and former Republican congressman said in the "Late Show" interview (above). "If he continues the way he continued the first month, I just don't think it's sustainable and I don't think it will last four years."
"I think we've already died a million deaths the first month," he joked.
Scarborough, who regularly chats with DC's political elite, shared with the CBS late-night comedian what Republicans are "saying behind closed doors."
"They're very worried about how erratic he's been," Scarborough said before praising a Republican politician from Nebraska for simply tweeting the First Amendment of the Constitution in response to Trump's attacks on the press. But also pointed out the absurdity of politicians having to defend free speech and free press.
"I said, 'Wait a second, in 2017 it seems a subversive act to simply tweet the words of the First Amendment.' That tells you where we are right now," Scarborough said. "I hope the President corrects... I hope he stays off of Twitter, but if he doesn't, I think we all need to do our part as Americans."
