MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on Monday said White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's "stupid" arguments on behalf of the Trump administration are making his "teeth hurt."

"Kellyanne Conway again just doing the inexplicable, saying the inexplicable, saying things ... that make my teeth hurt. When she's so stupid that they make my teeth hurt," Scarborough said on "Morning Joe." "Not her but the words that come of her mouth, when she's spinning talking about how Bob Mueller has, you know, given to Democrats."

Scarborough's comments come in response to remarks Conway made the day before, when she said that the White House intends to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller despite his investigation's team being largely comprised of Democratic donors.

"Even though he just hired his 16th person — many of them are Democratic donors, but we'll continue to cooperate and comply," Conway said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

"Take all of Bob Mueller's entire team, and they haven't given as much money to Democrats as Donald Trump and his former communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, who he hired while making the complaints," he said, pointing to their donations to former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaLet's not play Charlie Brown to Iran's Lucy Mattis dodges toughest question At debate, Warren and Buttigieg tap idealism of Obama, FDR MORE, Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonDershowitz: 'Too many politicians are being subject to criminal prosecution' The 13 Republicans needed to pass gun-control legislation Democrats spar over electoral appeal of 'Medicare for All' MORE, Sen.

Multiple outlets reported late last month that the president's legal advisers are digging into Mueller’s team in an attempt to find possible conflicts of interest that the White House could raise. Trump’s lawyers, however, deny the reports that they are engaging in opposition research of Mueller and his team.
