Donald Trump has had a brutal 72 hours, yet amid the fallout of his remarks about Fox News' Megyn Kelly, he has at least one prominent supporter: North Korea.
Except — not.
MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Monday twice referenced a friendly tweet about Trump coming from the North Korean government.

The truth not withstanding, MSNBC made the mistake in the 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. hours. Requests for comment from political analyst Mark Halperin, who first referenced the tweet, or from MSNBC reps were not immediately returned.
