MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' host, former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough, recalled an incident live on air in which he claimed "several months ago, a foreign policy expert went to advise Donald Trump and three times he asked about the use of nuclear weapons."

Scarborough made the comment in a discussion about why Donald Trump does not have any foreign policy experts advising him. Former CIA Director Micheal Hayden was asked who in the intelligence community is advising Trump, to which Hayden responded, 'no one.'

Scarborough added he was told that Trump specifically asked, "'If we have nuclear weapons, why can't we use them?'" Scarborough's co-host, Mika Brzezinski ended the segment, in which the other panelists appeared genuinely shocked, saying, "Be careful America, and be careful Republican leaders, your party is blowing up."
