MSNBC parts ways with weekend host Tiffany Cross, who will host the show on April 5
The move is yet another example of how President Trump’s administration’s moves on immigration and gender are playing out on Fox News and MSNBC.
Fox’s prime time lineup on Sunday, when Trump is expected to be back on the network, is already packed with a variety of hosts who have been either openly critical of the president or his policies.
The MSNBC show that replaced Cross has replaced her with a co-anchor, Joe Scarborough — a Republican ally of the president — who has been called out on his relationship with the president. He’s been highly critical of the president’s policies on immigration and women’s rights.
Scarborough, a former Republican congressman and radio talk show host, is a former naval officer who hosts a morning show on the National Rifle Association’s radio network.
Trump, who has repeatedly called the Fox News host “a little bit low” and “a slob,” called the Morning Joe co-anchor “the low of the low,” tweeted Monday morning.
“I will be doing the Mooch on Sunday,” Scarborough tweeted. “I’ve never had more fun! I’m doing Morning Joe! Thanks for all your support! God bless!”

Fox News’ prime-time lineup on Sunday, when Trump is expected to be back on the network, is already packed with a variety of hostess whose commentary — and on-air feuds — have been either openly critical of the president or his policies.
On Sunday, Sean Hannity will host the “Fox & Friends First” show which will include a lengthy conversation with Trump and former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who has been charged with lying to FBI agents regarding his contacts with Russia’s ambassador, Sergei Kislyak.
Flynn was one of Trump’s key advisers on foreign policy and on the decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.
On Monday, Hannity will return to his morning show, “Hannity” with a lengthy discussion on Trump, the Mueller investigation and the NFL protests, as well as his take on the Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act.
