"There's some hardcore supporters who will say it doesn't matter that Donald Trump is a liar, it doesn't matter that he stole classified documents, it doesn't matter that he obstructed justice, it doesn't matter that he broke the law," Scarborough said. "It doesn't matter that he kept lying and that he moved documents the day before they were coming down to get the documents, it doesn't matter that he got caught on tape lying. They'll say that, but when you go a little below the surface with them, they go, 'I'm so exhausted by this guy,' right?"
"When they aren't having to admit that they voted for him twice and that they keep defending him, you scratch below the surface -- I hear it time and time again, we both do -- they're so exhausted by him," Scarborough said.

Trump's hardcore base might stick with him, Scarborough said, and that might be enough to win the Republican Party nomination, but he said an indictment on possible espionage charges would be fatal in a general election.
"I think the indictment that's sure to come now from the Justice Department is really going to hurt Donald Trump in the suburbs of Atlanta, Philly, Detroit, Milwaukee -- you name it, Maricopa County, where all of these swing voters are that decide elections," he said. "Again, Trump people say, it's fine, it's fine. They won't come out and say it, but they like that he's a liar. They like that he lies to the FBI, they like that he lies to the DOJ, they like that he lies to everybody because they think, somehow, in some perverse, twisted logic, they think, somehow, that's sticking it to the libs, by being a liar constantly -- living your entire life being a lie in public service. That's what they think."
"The problem is, and we're going to get to the debt ceiling in a minute, I don't think that's where most of America is," he added. "I think most of America actually, you know, I think there are a lot of voters who decide elections who are going to hear this and it is going to push them even further away from Donald Trump."
