MSNBC's Joe Scarborough didn't want to hear the White House attempt to clean up Jared Kushner's "racist" comments.


President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser told Fox News on Monday the administration's policies could help Black Americans who wanted success, and Scarborough and his "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski were appalled.

"Wow," Brzezinski said. "So the White House responded in a statement that read in part, quote, 'It is disgusting to see internet trolls taking senior adviser Jared Kushner --"

Scarborough interrupted, and asked their producers to remove the statement from the screen.

"Actually, no no no," he said. "The trolling -- put it down."

Scarborough suggested the remarks should be enough to cost Trump the election and send Kushner back to the real estate business.

"He said a bigoted, racist, insensitive comment and guess what, you could be scrawling that on the side of your apartments in crayons a couple of months from now."
