MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough blasted Democrats for going after Barack Obama’s legacy instead of focusing on President Donald Trump.
The “Morning Joe” host couldn’t believe that the second round of Democratic presidential debates focused on attacking Obama’s signature health care legislation, and he said that played into the Republican president’s hands.
“I’m wondering why people who want votes from Democrats spent all last night trashing Barack Obama, saying support of Barack Obama’s signature plan, the Affordable Care Act, the greatest step forward toward universal health care in the history of the American republic, I’m wondering why they were trashing that and the defense of that is ‘Republican talking points,'” Scarborough said. “It is insanity, my friends.”
The former Republican said his Democratic friends hadn’t been persuaded by that line of attacks, which seem to be aimed at bringing down Obama’s vice president — and current frontrunner — Joe Biden.
“It was bizarre,” he said. “Just judging from what I’ve seen and what I’ve heard since that debate, a lot of the Democrats are pretty pissed off, saying if you’re thinking you’re getting my vote by trashing Barack Obama’s legacy, you have another thing coming.”
“Give me a break!” Scarborough added. “What’s wrong with you people? You’re going up against Donald Trump, and you’re talking about defending ObamaCare as Republican talking points? Who is advising you?”

Here is what she wrote:
I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n
Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan
As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.
Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.
The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.
But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.
John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist
Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.
"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
