Joe Scarborough called out President Donald Trump on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday for his behavior toward Saudi Arabia and accused him of being “for sale.”

“The whole world’s watching and they’re listening to you, and it seems that you are for sale, your administration is for sale, your White House is for sale,” Scarborough said. (RELATED: ‘Morning Joe’s’ Mika Claims She Feels ‘Terrible’ For Trump Supporters Who Are ‘Pawns’ Of The President)

Scarborough said he had a direct source to back up his assertions.

“This is embarrassing. I got the information that the Saudis had helped make you richer from a source that’s not a very good source. In fact, it’s hard to actually believe anything that comes from this source because it’s just a constant stream of steady lies,” he added.


“But I will admit, very embarrassed. My source for saying that you, Donald, made millions and millions of dollars off the Saudis came from this source right here. Let’s play the tape. I’m ashamed, ashamed, ashamed.”

Scarborough then played a tape of Trump himself, saying how well he gets along with Saudi Arabian officials and how much they pay to buy apartments from him.

“So I’m writing this down,” Scarborough said. “Let’s see. I like the Saudis. They make me rich. They give me $40 million, $50 million. They buy toys from Trump. Hundreds of millions of dollars.”

“Donald Trump tells people during the campaign that he makes hundreds of millions of dollars from the Saudis, so he likes them. So here we have this gruesome spectacle,” he said.
