"They have always been boosters" of Trump, CNN "New Day" host Chris Cuomo tweeted about MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

"Things turned south when trump froze them out but coverage always stilted. They are transition spokesmen now," added Cuomo, whose show is on during the same time slot as "Morning Joe."

The tweet was in response to reports that Scarborough had been advising Trump and that Brzezinski was attending a meeting at transition headquarters at Trump Tower.

The two "Morning Joe" hosts have been accused of being overly cozy with Trump in the past, though they also harshly criticized him during the campaign.

Scarborough and Brzezinski questioned Trump's campaign tactics and whether he would follow through on his promises.

Trump frequently responded by questioning the MSNBC hosts' intelligence, accusing them of bias against him and ripping their show's ratings.
