MSNBC's Joe Scarborough criticized President TrumpDonald John TrumpSchiff: Surveillance warrant docs show that Nunes memo 'misrepresented and distorted these applications' Chicago detention facility under investigation following allegations of abuse of migrant children Ex-Trump aide: Surveillance warrants are 'complete ignorance' and 'insanity' MORE over a rally held this past weekend in which the president railed against the media and skewered his Democratic opponents.

“He actually talked about the fake media. ... The booing is getting stronger by the day whenever he goes out there and whips up like it’s a Mussolini rally,” he said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," referring to Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.

"And yes, that's what I said," Scarborough added. "There is nothing American about what Donald Trump did in Pennsylvania when he tries to turn an entire audience, whether it's against Katy Tur or whether it's against Chuck Todd."

Trump during the rally tore into NBC's Chuck Todd, calling the host a "sleeping son of a bitch."

"When you're in rallies like that and you whip your supporters into a frenzy, there are real life consequences to that," Scarborough said.

"Threats follow, often death threats."

Scarborough said that's exactly what Trump wants.

His comments come after Trump held a rally Saturday in Pennsylvania for Republican congressional hopeful Rick Saccone, in which the president appeared to return to the bombastic, unrestrained candidate from 2016. 

Trump spent much of the evening touting his own accomplishments since he took office and used the rally to unveil his own 2020 campaign slogan: "Keep America Great."

Trump is known to frequently rant against the media and accuse reporters and networks of putting out "fake news."
