Open thread for night owls: Will Joe and Mika ever apologize for making Trump look good in 2016?

Matthew Sheffield at Salon writes—Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are angry at Donald Trump now — but they’ve never apologized for promoting him:
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have become some of Donald Trump’s most vociferous critics in recent months. Amid all of their criticisms of him, however, they have yet to apologize for their own role in helping his presidential campaign be viewed credibly by the press and the general public.
During Friday’s episode of “Morning Joe,” Scarborough flat-out stated that Trump had somehow, magically morphed into a different person from the guy he used to know.

“The guy that’s in the White House now is not the guy we knew two years ago,” Scarborough told his panel 

“Not even close,” Brzezinski agreed.[...]

That’s their story and they’re sticking to it. Too bad it’s completely false [...]

As Trump’s presidential campaign moved from sideshow to reality, the trio’s relationship became the subject of much mockery. Trump himself acknowledged Brzezinski and Scarborough’s loyalty during the night of the New Hampshire primary, telling them, “You guys have been supporters. And I really appreciate it. And not necessarily supporters, but at least believers.”

A few days later, Trump and Scarborough were overheard in a surreptitiously recorded conversation discussing how to make him look good. That is indeed what the MSNBC co-hosts did for the better part of a year.
For crying out loud. A different guy than two years ago? Good grief. The guy hasn’t morphed since November 8 from a swell fellow into the embarrassment and reckless endangerment of a leader he daily proves himself to be. Trump himself says he is the same now as he was in third grade.
