Morning Joe rips Rand Paul for pretending he's undecided on Trump's court pick: 'It's a joke -- he does this every time'

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough scorched Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and any reporter who takes him seriously as a check against President Donald Trump.


The Kentucky Republican says he hasn't decided whether he will vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice, but the "Morning Joe" host called Paul out as a fraud.

"You know, when we look at the senators who may or may not support Kavanaugh, let's just not even put Rand Paul on this list," Scarborough said. "He does this every time. 'I'm going to vote against that, I'm going to vote against this' -- he always ends up supporting Donald Trump blindly."

Scarborough slammed Paul Monday morning, and again Tuesday, for agreeing to go along with Trump's efforts to punish some of his political enemies by revoking their security clearance, and he said the senator was no maverick.

"He's going to vote for Kavanaugh," Scarborough said. "It's a joke for him to even -- any reporter that thinks he's not, seriously should look into another profession. He's going to vote for Kavanaugh."
