WATCH: Scarborough Mocks Republicans For Allowing Former Guy to Destroy Their Party
This morning, Joe Scarborough mocked the GOP for “kissing Donald Trump’s ring” as he continues to “loot” their party.
Donald Trump is so much less powerful than he was when he held public office. His social media accounts have essentially been neutered. His replacement is running a much higher approval rating than Trump ever did. And this seems like the perfect time for Republicans to move on from him.
The party, however, does not seem interested in doing that at all. Trump held an event this weekend where he mocked Mitch McConnell as a “dumb son of a bitch.” During a Monday segment, Joe Scarborough slammed the party for continuing to allow Trump to have any control.
“I love the quote that somebody had there, like, ‘why are you here after all of this?'” Scarborough began. “And she said, ‘well, because we were losers before Donald Trump came along — he showed us how to win.’ Oh! You have the first guy since Hebert Hoover … that the only one-term president since Herbert Hoover to lose the White House, to lose the House, and to lose the Senate.”
The Morning Joe host continued:
“And now you’re looting the Republican National Committee’s coffers and giving it to this guy, which is not going to help the Republican Party. This guy who, you know, just last week, we found out about a scam that he was conducting, where poor working-class Americans, middle-class Americans had their bank accounts drained, because they had such sleazy tactics, used purposefully sleazy tactics to fool working-class Americans into having their bank accounts drained for Donald Trump. Wow, that’s — that’s somebody to support.”
