After Another Officer Suicide, Joe Scarborough Slams the GOP for Taking the Side of Terrorists Over Cops [VIDEO]
On Monday, it was revealed that another Capitol police officer involved in the insurrection had taken his own life. This came just a week after 4 officers testified about their experiences. Following their testimonies, personalities like Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham mocked their stories.
And GOP lawmakers have treated the cops in a similar fashion as the Fox News hosts. A number of them flat out refused to meet with the officers in person. During his Tuesday show, Joe Scarborough mocked Republicans for taking the side of the terrorists.
The Morning Joe host told his audience:
“Let’s be clear about it. Republicans, they have a choice to make, it’s a simple choice. You can either be on the side of American terrorists, that’s what the cops called them, that were getting brutalized with American flags. You can either be on the side of American terrorists or you can be on the side of law enforcement officers, of police officers. It’s that simple. Terrorists or cops, pick a side, and if you decide that you do want to support law enforcement officers, if you do want to protect those who have protected you every day inside the United States Capitol, if you are a Republican, could you please, please offer your support publicly for law enforcement officers today in the Capitol, D.C. Metro force?”
