The week before the Virginia gubernatorial election, Democrat Terry McAuliffe had Joe Biden and Barack Obama campaign for him. Glenn Youngkin, though, did not have Donald Trump come in for a rally.
This was embarrassing for Trump. Biden even noted the slight while taking questions from reporters. And election pundits are now saying the strategy is partly why Youngkin won.
According to Joe Scarborough, Trump should get used to this. The MSNBC host mocked the former president Monday morning, saying that no one wants him to campaign for them.
Scarborough told his audience, “You look at what happened in 2020 and you just look from 2016 to 2020, you project that forward and as one potential Republican candidate for president in 2024 told me last week, nobody wants him to campaign for them in any swing states.”
The host continued:
“If you’re running statewide in Pennsylvania, you don’t want him there in a general election. Same with Michigan, same with Wisconsin, same with any swing states, and that tells you all you need to know what’s happening with his popularity even last year since the election, and also since Jan. 6.”
