Fox & Friends took a post-Mueller victory lap on Thursday while MSNBC's Joe Scarborough openly mocked the conclusion that the hearing was a good day for the Republican Party.

Over on President Trump's morning show of choice, Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade concluded that the Mueller testimony "really changed things in the direction of the president," while co-host Ainsley Earhardt claimed the hearings "really did clear the president" and decided that "now we can move on," per Media Matters for America's Bobby Lewis. Later in the show, the hosts played a montage of various pundits observing that the hearings were a big miss for Democrats.
