Joe Scarborough questioned Stormy Daniels’ credibility Monday on “Morning Joe” after her “60 Minutes” interview and then criticized Anderson Cooper for not being more thorough in his follow-up questions.

Scarborough slipped into an Italian gangster accent before saying there may have been a deal in place, preventing Cooper from covering certain topics.

“I mean we shouldn’t hold [Cooper] to a lawyer’s standard but [Daniels] goes, some man threatened me and said, boy, that baby sure looks nice, it would be a shame if she loses her mother. And he doesn’t go, who was it,” Scarborough said.

“What did he look like? Did he look like this person this who works for Donald Trump?” Scarborough continued. “That’s not that hard to follow up on. You wonder if they had some deal before the interview.”


George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley agreed and said Daniels has very little credibility and any fallout from the interview will be apparent in a matter of days.

“There’s a lot of lack of follow-up, including on credibility. Stormy Daniels saying I just didn’t want my kids to find out about this and it sort of left you with, what? You had a career with dozens of porn movies and you were afraid your kid would find out you had a consensual relationship with the president?” Turley said. “Those types of disconnects weren’t followed up and the fact is Stormy Daniels is not very credible. She’s signed false statements. That doesn’t mean that what she’s saying is not true.”

“What is clear now is this ball’s in play,” Turley concluded. “That nondisclosure agreement has been blasted into small bits. And so what we’re going to see in the next few days is going to be very important.”
