During his presidency, Donald Trump never had to most experienced cabinet around him. At least at the beginning of his term, though, he had some respected people. By the end, though, Trump was surrounded by the worst of the worst.
It was revealed just how bad the problem was during yesterday’s January 6th hearings. This morning, Joe Scarborough blasted the former President for working with crackpots.
The Morning Joe host began, “I mean, just facts and evidence all lining up that this was a fair election. It’s overwhelming, and what’s shocking is that the idiots that run these conspiracy websites, basically, those were the type of people that Donald Trump surrounded himself with. Make no mistake, we talk about form shopping for judges as lawyers, you’re trying to find the right judge so you’re forum shopping.”
“Here, Donald Trump was forum shopping to get the right idiots — idiots, wackos, lunatics, insurrectionists inside the White House, and it was hard, it was hard to find people as freaking crazy as Sidney Powell. It was hard to find somebody as debased morally as Rudy Giuliani. It was hard finding these crackpots that were so desperate to be around a president, that they were willing to overthrow the United States government, but Donald Trump found them.”
