On Thursday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough pointed out something stark: Republicans wouldn’t really lose power by removing President Donald Trump, because Vice President Mike Pence would take over for him. So why don’t they want that?
“They’re humiliating themselves. They’re acting like Donald Trump will be in office for the rest their lives. He just won’t,” said Scarborough. “Every Republican knows that Donald Trump is not mentally fit to be president of the United States, he’s not temperamentally fit to be president of the United States, he is illiterate when it comes to the Constitution, he is illiterate when it comes to American history, he is illiterate when it comes to America’s history across the globe and our very special sitting place across the globe.”
“You just have to start asking yourself, how much do these Republicans hate Mike Pence?” continued Scarborough. “Because this is not a choice between Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi. It is not a choice between Donald Trump and Elizabeth Warren. It is not a choice between Donald Trump and, quote, fake news. This is a choice between having a corrupt man who is not a conservative, a life-long Democrat who has been caught just doing the worst things. And actually proclaiming that the second that article two gives him power, unlimited power to do whatever he wants to do. And, yet, they continue to stand steadfastly by him when it is so obvious he’s not fit to be president of the United States.”
“I just wonder, why do they hate Mike Pence so much that they don’t trust a guy who’s actually been a conservative all of his life to actually run a sane White House?” Scarborough added.
Twitter blocked coronavirus ‘misinformation’ from Rudy Giuliani and another right-wing internet troll: report
President Donald Trump's favorite social media platform blocked COVID-19 misinformation from two of his biggest supporters.

Italy’s COVID-19 death toll tops 10,000 despite long coronavirus lockdown
The coronavirus toll in Italy shot past 10,000 on Saturday and showed little sign of slowing despite a 16-day lockdown.
The 889 new fatalities reported in the world's worst-hit nation came a day after it registered 969 deaths on Friday -- the highest single toll since the COVID-19 virus emerged late last year.
Italy now looks certain to extend its economically debilitating -- and emotionally stressful -- business closures and the ban on public gatherings past their April 3 deadline.
"Is it time to reopen the country? I think we have to think about it really carefully," civil protection service chief Angelo Borrelli told reporters.
Joe Biden has one key coronavirus question he wants answered: ‘Where are the tests, Mr. President?’
Despite the inability to hold campaign rallies, the 2020 presidential campaign is continuing in spite of the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
With the response to coronavirus being the top public policy discussion in America, all eyes are focused on President Donald Trump's actions.
Trump had promised the nation that he would set up COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites in the parking lots of big-box retailers but has so far failed to deliver.
