Even though Morning Joe has spent a lot of time going back and forth on Donald Trump’s supposed virtues as a candidate, it seems that host Joe Scarborough may have finally reached a breaking point.
In the wake of Thursday night’s Democratic National Convention speeches — in which Trump was completely savaged from every angle — Scarborough told Republicans on Friday that the time has come to start rescinding their Trump endorsements.
“The center cannot hold when you have the Speaker of the House calling the Republican nominee a racist, but saying he’s still endorsing,” he said. “When you have the most powerful Republican in government, the Speaker of the House, saying ‘What he said is racist’; when you have the most powerful Republican in government, the Speaker of the House, condemning Donald Trump for his laudatory, his continued laudatory remarks on Vladimir Putin… Thank you Republican leaders in Washington, that’s who you’re endorsing.”
While it would be difficult to explain to their constituents why they’re un-endorsing Trump, Scarborough urged them to simply tell them the truth and explain that he’s unfit for office.
“You’ve got to cut him loose!” he said.
