Morning Joe slams ‘stupid’ Mick Mulvaney for his latest attempt to snow the ‘rubes’ with a conspiracy theory

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough bashed acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney for insulting the public’s intelligence by denying his confession of a quid pro quo arrangement.

The “Morning Joe” host said Mulvaney clearly lied by denying that he’d admitted during a videotaped news conference to helping to hold up aid to Ukraine as part of an effort to pressure the foreign ally to investigate a debunked conspiracy theory held by President Donald Trump.

“There’s rank stupidity here,” Scarborough said. “I don’t know whether Mick Mulvaney is the one that is so stupid or whether he believes that Donald Trump supporters are so stupid that if he just keeps lying, talks fast enough, he thinks the rubes — he must consider them to be rubes — in his mind will let it pass.”

Mulvaney was called out on his lies during a Fox News appearance Sunday, and Scarbrough said he tried to change the subject to a debunked conspiracy theory involving a Democratic National Committee server and Ukraine.

“Only conspiracy theorists are talking about a DNC server being hidden mysteriously somewhere by an oligarch in Ukraine,” he said. “Nobody believes that to be the truth. That is a conspiracy theory, and yet he is saying, that’s the quid pro quo, this conspiracy theory that was disproven by conservatives and liberals a very long time ago.”

LISTEN: Charlamagne Tha God clashes with ‘delusional’ Rush Limbaugh in debate over George Floyd’s killing and white privilege

Published

on

During an interview with Rush Limbaugh this Monday, Charlamagne Tha God called out the conservative radio host for his white privilege and asked him why he's choosing to speak out on George Floyd's killing while there have been countless examples of police violence against black people.

“I know that you’re going to disagree with me on this — to me this is not America,” Limbaugh said, adding that he thinks the U.S. is the greatest country in the world.

But according to Charlamagne, America is only great for some people.

“I think it’s easy for you to say because you’re a white male and that comes with a different level of privilege,” Charlamagne said. “And I do think America does work but it works for the people it was designed to work for. It doesn’t work for everyone else the way it works for you.”
