On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarbrough took a shot at Donald Trump’s new campaign manager who made his debut on Fox News on Monday for his comments about former Vice President Joe Biden, saying he is pushing a line of attack that will blow up in his face.
During his appearance on Fox & Friends, Bill Stepien who recently took over the faltering Trump campaign, launched an attack on Biden saying you can “judge him” by the people he surrounds himself with.
After watching the clip, MSNBC host Scarborough said the campaign manager was making a big mistake.
“You just don’t want to go there,” the MSNBC host warned. “That was President Trump’s newly promoted campaign manager making his first TV appearance yesterday, and he was talking about the people that Joe Biden surrounds himself with.”
“Look at the people that Donald Trump surrounded himself with,” he continued. “I mean, remember that Donald Trump’s foreign policy adviser was busted and convicted for lying about Russia. His national security advisor busted and convicted about lying about his contacts with Russia. Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, busted and convicted for lying. Deputy campaign chairman busted and convicted for lying about Russia. His personal lawyer, busted and convicted for lying about Russia. Political consultant, busted and convicted for lying about Russia and his attorney general and his son-in-law misspoke, didn’t tell the truth about their contacts with Russia as well.”
“I mean, you look at the number of people that have gone to jail lying for Donald Trump, you look at the fact that if Donald Trump weren’t president of the United States he would likely have been on his way to jail because of obstruction of justice. It’s really — it’s just staggering that the Trump people have so little to go after Joe Biden on,” he added.
Jake Tapper stunned by Trump’s debate: ‘That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck’
CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.
"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."
"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"

Trump defiantly refuses to condemn extremists groups at debate: ‘Proud Boys, stand back and stand by’
President Donald Trump on Tuesday refused an opportunity to disavow right-wing extremists and white supremacist groups.
At his first 2020 presidential debate, Trump was asked if he would speak out against the extremist groups.
"Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacist and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down?" moderator Chris Wallace asked the president.
"I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing," Trump complained. "I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace."
"Do it, sir," Wallace said.
"Say it," Democratic candidate Joe Biden chimed in.
