Tom Cotton speaks to CBS News (screen grab)

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said Sen. Tom Cotton’s defense of slavery would drag down other Republicans in November’s election.

The Arkansas Republican called slavery a “necessary evil,” and the “Morning Joe” host said voters are increasingly alienated by the GOP’s “blatant racism.”

“The guy went to Harvard Law School, he knows how to draft a sentence,” Scarborough said. “He wrote, as the founding fathers said, slavery was the necessary evil upon which the union was built. We can all read English. He tried blaming that on the media, blame it on himself or whoever drafted that, but these sort of quotes not only damage Donald Trump and Republican senators with Black voters, with Latino voters, with Asian-American voters, it, of course, damages Donald Trump’s prospects of ever winning back white suburban voters in the suburbs of Philly, in Macomb County, Michigan, in the suburbs of Milwaukee, the suburbs of Pittsburgh.”

“This blatant racism is devastating and self-defeating not only to Donald Trump’s election chances,” Scarborough added, “but also to a lot of the Republican senators in Arizona and North Carolina.”

During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.

After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday refused to say if she had any proof of allegations of corruption against Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter.

Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled McDaniel about the Trump campaign's smear against the Biden family on Fox News Sunday.

"Do you have any proof -- because he's denied it -- do you have any proof that Joe Biden every took one penny from either a foreign country or a foreign company?" Wallace asked.

"I think that's incumbent upon the press to start investigating," McDaniel replied. "I think what's frightening is we should have a free and fair press that should be looking at a laptop that has not been disputed by the Biden campaign to be authentic. These emails are deeply troubling as it looks like Hunter Biden is negotiating with a Chinese energy company to profit, not just for himself, but for his father."
