Leaked Donald Trump voicemails reveal MSNBC hosts Tamron Hall, Mika Brzezinski, and Joe Scarborough cozying up to the New York real estate developer.

The voicemails, which were released Friday, were sent to Gawker by someone saying they hacked Trump.

A source in the TV industry told The Daily Caller the voices seemed authentic, adding, “I’d bet money.”

The calls with Tamron Hall are allegedly from 2012 and the Brzezinski and Scarborough ones cannot be dated.

In Hall’s voicemail she says, “I celebrated by going to Gucci, and I’m going to use your discount, because there’s a green dress that’s like $3,000, and I need a discount bigger than the one — my discount.” Hall continues to say, “I hope you’re bracing for Romney to get his butt whipped tomorrow by Obama.”

In another one she refers to an unknown YouTube video featuring Trump and says, “I saw the YouTube video today and wanted to chat with you about it and wanted you to know I’m a huge fan and think the world of you. But I think that thing today was not good—not becoming of who I think you are as a person, as a statesman, like your award. I just thought it was just kind of crummy.”

The award she is referring to is the Sarasota Republican “Statesman of the Year” award he received in 2012. The same year as this voicemail Trump released a YouTube video requesting Obama to show his birth certificate to the public.

In the undated call from the “Morning Joe” hosts, they say hello to the GOP front-runner and Scarborough tells him, “We are so, so grateful for everything, Donald, and we just want to call you and tell you how much it means to us.”


Scarborough sent out tweets Friday afternoon defending himself and said the voicemails were regarding donations to a children’s charity by Trump.
