President Trump took a backhanded compliment from MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough and used it to brag-tweet about his “BRAIN.”

During a segment on “Morning Joe” Wednesday morning, Scarborough acknowledged that Trump is vivacious on the campaign trail and looks “20 years younger” than some of his Democratic challengers, even if he is spewing hateful rhetoric.

A Washington Examiner reporter tweeted out the remark and Trump retweeted him, thanking Scarborough — whom Trump often lambastes for being critical of him — and suggesting he was smarter than former Vice President Joe Biden.
