WATCH: Scarborough Slams Politicians Like Ted Cruz For Complaining About Facebook Rather Than Just Breaking it Up
On Wednesday, Donald Trump announced that he would be suing Facebook, Twitter and Google. Nearly every legal pundit agrees that the platforms were well within their rights to ban the president and that the suit it frivolous.
Still, Trump’s sycophants in government were quick to back up his play. This includes people with law degrees like Ted Cruz. During a Thursday morning segment, Joe Scarborough blasted these politicians by saying they should be focused on breaking up Facebook rather than complaining about it.
The Morning Joe host began, “It’s been funny to watch these phony populists, these Harvard boys and these Stanford boys and these Yale boys, and you name it, and all these Ivy League schoolboys that are supposed to be so smart talking about Facebook and Twitter like they are state actors. And like they’re violating people’s First Amendment rights.”
Scarborough continued, “I don’t know, I’m just a dumb country lawyer. “But even I know if you want to remedy the situation, you break Facebook up and you use antitrust laws to break Facebook up and to break Twitter up and to break these other monopolies up.”
