‘Breaking badly’: Morning Joe has bad news for Donald Trump

Published

Joe Scarborough (MSNBC)

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was facing an “inflection point” ahead of the first presidential debate.

The president will face off against Joe Biden for the first time Tuesday night, and the “Morning Joe” host said the stakes could hardly be higher for his re-election chances.

“Where we are is at an inflection point,” Scarborough said. “Donald Trump is losing. His support over the past few days has been dropping, in some places precipitously enough so to concern his advisers. We showed you yesterday polls from two of the most important states, Wisconsin and Michigan. And in Wisconsin, down 10 points. He’s losing support there. In Michigan, down eight points. These are must-win states for Donald Trump.”

The president still has a chance, Scarborough said, but things may need to break perfectly again — as they did in 2016.

“Unless he can pull off an inside straight, which depends largely on the state of Pennsylvania,” Scarborough said. “Nobody in the Trump White House thinks Donald Trump can win without winning the state of Pennsylvania. New polls out last night shows a nine-point lead, Joe Biden opening up a lead in the state he should win and a state that we all thought was too close all along. Well, you look at what’s happened with the Supreme Court appointment, something, again, we predicted last week was going to shatter support in areas he needed to gain support, among women, college-educated people that used to be Republicans that are breaking Joe Biden’s way, among independents, and then this morning a Washington Post-ABC News poll coming out from Pennsylvania also showing Joe Biden at 54 percent to Donald Trump’s 45 percent.”

“A nine-point lead, but again for all those people crowing about this being 2016,” Scarborough added, “look at that top number. Look at the top number in that Pennsylvania poll. Joe Biden’s not at 44 percent with Donald Trump at 43 percent, he’s at 54 percent. He’s gone over the 50 percent threshold. Could he lose still? Yes, he could lose still, a lot of things could happen. But things are breaking badly against Donald Trump.”

Win or lose — Trump is about to unleash hell

Published

on

With poll numbers staying put and the odds of a Joe Biden win in Tuesday's election looking good — possibly by a decisive margin — there's mounting dread about how Donald Trump will behave after a defeat. After all, Trump is a sociopathic narcissist with the emotional control of a — well, I won't insult toddlers with the comparison — and he lives in mortal terror of being viewed as a loser. He's already made clear that he will refuses to concede, no matter what, and he's grasping desperately for any way to get legal ballots thrown out so he can steal the election.

GOP senator offended LDS community after likening Trump to a ‘selfless’ Book of Mormon hero: report

Published

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.

"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."
