Morning Joe drops a bomb on Trump over his decimation of the government in just two years

Joe Scarborough (MSNBC)

During a discussion over the possibility that Donald Trump might face a viable primary opponent from the Republican Party, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough wondered where are all the GOP deficit hawks who should jump into the race after the president exploded the deficit.

Speaking with MSNBC regular John Heilemann, Scarborough — who was a deficit hawk when he served in the House as a Republican representing Florida — pointed out that Trump has achieved something ignoble in just two years that the government previously spent centuries doing.

“You know, John Heilemann, it took the United States about 215, 220 years to rack up a $4 trillion debt,” he began. “Yeah, a couple of centuries to rack up that debt. Donald Trump by the end of his first term, in four years will rack up a $4 trillion debt.”

“You take deficits — you know, the reason I got into Congress is because of deficits and the national debt,” he continued. “There are still, I think, some small-government conservatives that vote in primaries. You take that, you take the fact that Donald Trump is a protectionist along the lines of, you know, liberal Democrats over the past 40, 50 years, the fact that he’s anti-NATO. The fact that he’s been against a lot of the alliances that helped us beat the communists, the Soviets and helped us beat the Nazis. It seems to me that even if somebody is politically swinging at windmills there will be Republicans that will want to go out and actually vote for someone who is conservative and not just illiberal.”

"Vehicles used as weapons," Don Lemon began. "You heard me right, vehicles are being used as weapons against Americans taking to the streets in Black Lives Matter protests in cities across this country."

If she is confirmed the court would shift to a 6-3 conservative majority.

Trump tells supporters he won’t be ‘stupid’ enough for peaceful transition of power if he loses

Published

President Donald Trump continued to spread debunked conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election during a Friday night campaign rally in Virginia.

Trump argued that it was impossible for him to lose the election, thus concluding he would be "stupid" to hand over power peacefully should he lose.

"We not gonna lose this, except if they cheat," Trump falsely claimed about the 2020 campaign, where he trails Joe Biden in national and battleground polling.

"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."
