If perhaps the corporate overlords at Comcast–which owns MSNBC–were wondering if it’s time to give Joe Scarborough the axe, what the asshat morning host said earlier today should convince them to hand Joe his pink slip. But I seriously doubt they will.
Discussing the differences between how President Obama and Donald Trump are perceived when they entered the White House, Scarborough let fly with this bit of drivel:
“Obama came in as black Jesus. I don’t want to come in as redneck Jesus if I’m a president of the United States. You want to come in where people — like Ronald Reagan — actually underestimate you.”
This means, Scarborough theorized, that the pressure is off Trump:
“And the media, once again, has done Donald Trump a great favor. What have they told us over the past week? He’s a white supremacist, he’s a Nazi, he’s bringing Nazis back to America.”
Has it dawned on Scarborough that the media is saying these things about Trump because they just so happen to be completely true?
But Scarborough was far from finished blaming the media (which he’s a part of) for everything:
“They set the bar so low, Donald Trump says there’s a bar, I’m going to walk over it.”
No wonder so many once loyal MSNBC viewers refuse to watch Morning Joe. The host is a complete moron.
