MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough hammered Republicans for pretending to care about bigotry after nominating the most prominent “birther” as their presidential candidate to succeed Barack Obama.
The “Morning Joe” host has been strongly criticizing GOP lawmakers for calling out allegedly anti-Semitic comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), saying that Republicans have not taken a stand against President Donald Trump’s bigoted statements and actions.
“The hypocrisy of the Republicans is beyond breathtaking,” Scarborough said. “We can do this in sequential order. In early December 2015 Donald Trump talked about a Muslim ban, banning over 1.5 billion people from entering this country because of the god they worship — pure bigotry, unconstitutional, a rank violation of the First Amendment. Then he talked about a Muslim registry, Republicans said nothing.”
“Then he claimed that he didn’t know who David Duke was or who the Ku Klux Klan were or what they did, on the Sunday before Super Tuesday,” Scarborough said. “Republicans said nothing. Then he attacked an Indiana judge born in America, because his parents were born in Mexico, and he actually said that that American judge couldn’t be fair and do his job fairly because there was Hispanic blood in him. Republicans said nothing.”
“Then he starts putting Star of Davids over dollars and Hillary Clinton’s image, Republicans say nothing,” Scarborough continued. “Kevin McCarthy suggesting that Jews are buying the midterm elections by putting up pictures of George Soros.”
“Then during the caravans, Republican congressmen saying that Jews like George Soros were funding the caravan in hopes of stirring up their base,” he added. “The anti-Semitism, I mean, I haven’t even touched on Charlottesville! There are so many this Republican majority and the House of Representatives and this Republican president have used racism and bigotry and, of course, the original sin was Donald Trump’s birtherism, and yet they shamelessly attack one horrible anti-Semitic tweet, which should be condemned, but they are the last people to throw stones because they don’t live in a glass house, they live in a glass tower that has the words Trump etched in crystal all over it,”
Legal expert admits he was wrong to argue Trump wasn’t the worst president in history
Fordham Law School Prof. Jed Shugerman confessed on Twitter that he was wrong, President Donald Trump really is the worst president in American history.
He explained that in the past he's tried to explain that previous presidents like Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan and Andrew Jackson were the worst American presidents given what they did to persist the Civil War, the genocide of Native Americans and other acts. They were "openly siding [with] white supremacy and causing a civil war," which he said he thought was "far worse than anything Trump could do."
Trump’s dangerous mental condition grows worse as America faces devastating crises: Yale psychiatrist
A nation most afflicted with a mental health problem is the least likely to address it. I am speaking of the mental health, or lack thereof, of the president. His psychological impairments have been deadly through action and inaction, and are now promoting police brutality through pronouncements such as, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” while marking protesters as “thugs”.
