Scarborough had harsh words for CNN last week, after the network reported that the "Morning Joe" hosts were giving favorable treatment to Trump, and that MSNBC officials were concerned about the trend.
 
MSNBC also responded by issuing a statement that denied some of the accusations put forth by CNN, including that Brzezinski and Scarborough celebrated the New Hampshire primary results with Trump in his hotel room.

"It should be noted that Morning Joe is off to a great start in this election year," the statement added. "In January, the show had 28% more viewers than CNN's morning show last month. And thus far in February, more people are watching Morning Joe than CNN."
