MSNBC’s Morning Joe hilariously busts Trump Jr’s hypocrisy with video of his dad bragging about nepotism

Published

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski mocked Donald Trump Jr. for slinging charges of nepotism against Hunter Biden.

President Donald Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry into his efforts to pressure Ukraine to dig up campaign dirt on Joe Biden and his family, and the president’s namesake son accused the former vice president’s son of corruption.

The “Morning Joe” hosts were gobsmacked by Trump Jr.’s lack of self-awareness, and they rolled a clip from 2006 of the reality TV star-turned-president repeatedly saying that he thought nepotism was a good thing.

“I like nepotism,” Trump told CNN’s Larry King. “You know, if you can’t take care of your kids, you know that better than I. I like nepotism. A lot of people say, oh, nepotism. Usually these are people without children, but I like nepotism.”

The president’s son also called Hunter Biden a “clown” who couldn’t get hired anywhere but a “corrupt Ukrainian oil company,” and Scarborough was astonished by his hypocrisy.

“Don Jr. had no more qualifications to take the job that he had than anybody else did, than Hunter Biden did,” he said. “It’s just — other people, I think, can criticize, but it sure sounds hypocritical from Donald Trump or family members who benefit from that nepotism. They’re not doing it in Ukraine, they’re doing it in the White House and in Trump Tower.”

‘Tempting fate and asking for trouble’: Dr. Fauci rips Ozark pool partiers for blowing off pandemic safety

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, slammed the large crowds that gathered for a now-infamous pool party in Missouri over the weekend for blowing off social distancing guidelines.

During an interview with CNN's Jim Sciutto, Fauci was asked what he made of the people who were captured on video partying without keeping any distance or wearing any face masks.

"When you have situations in which you see that type of crowding, with no masks and people interacting, that's not prudent and that's inviting a situation that could get out of control," Fauci said. "So I keep -- when I get an opportunity to plead with people, understanding you do want to gradually do this, but don't start leapfrogging over the recommendations and guidelines because that's tempting fate and asking for trouble."

Your election angst is real: Trump’s gonna cheat and it could be total hell

During the presidential campaign of 1988, "Saturday Night Live's" Dana Carvey played then-Vice President George H.W. Bush as a lovable oddball and Jon Lovitz portrayed Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis as an emotionally detached technocrat, musing out loud during a debate, "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy."

Even though it was a comedy sketch, that line has been thrown in Democrats' faces ever since as an example of their arrogant elitism and failure to understand Real America. Don't you know that the average voter wants a president they can have a beer with, not some egghead know-it-all?
