‘Quislings, collaborators and stooges’: MSNBC’s Scarborough rips into Trump’s Fox News ‘apologists’

Published

on

Former Congressman Joe Scarborough (R-FL) believes that defending President Donald Trump will “forever stain” the reputations some leading Fox News conservatives.

Writing in The Washington Post, the co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe slammed the “miserable crew” attacking special counsel Robert Mueller.

“These are desperate times for the quislings of Trump,” Scarborough observed. “The cost of collaborating with President Trump in the continued debasement of American democracy is becoming far too high.”

He observed that “the president must have felt the walls closing in even more tightly around him” following the FBI raid on Michael Cohen, the president’s longtime counselor.

The morning host mentioned Fox News, former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA), Fox analyst Joe DiGenova and Fox personality Sean Hannity by name.

“Even the most terrified politician must know that Trump and his stooges have reason to be rattled,” the former congressman suggested.

He concluded that “the steady stream of attacks on Justice Department professionals, FBI agents and all the honorable men and women who daily defend Americans against enemies foreign and domestic will forever stain the reputations of Trump’s most shameless apologists.”

"Meet the Press Daily" anchor Katy Tur interviewed former Southern District of New York Assistant U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah, who is a distinguished fellow in criminal justice at Pace Law School.

"So this news that the SDNY is looking into what Rudy Giuliani was doing overseas in Ukraine, explain what they’re doing. Also, very weird since Giuliani used to run the office," Tur noted.
