MSNBC host Joe Scarborough went off on a tirade about House Minority Leader Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Friday morning for saying he had a list of Democrats his party could go after in light of stripping Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of her committee assignments.
Pointing to speech before the House where McCarthy made his threat, the "Morning Joe" host compared him to Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-WI) and his bogus list of Communists who had infiltrated the U.S. government.
"Do you have a long list, Kevin?" the MSNBC host began. "Do you have a long list of a member of Congress calling for the assassination of Donald Trump? Do you have a list of a member of Congress calling for the lynching of George W. Bush? Do you have in that Joe McCarthy list of yours that you are talking about, do you have a name of a Democrat Joseph McCarthy that called for the lynching of Secretary of State Colin Powell?"
"Oh, wait a second, you know what, you don't," he continued. "You're lying. You're lying again. But, Kevin, this is just what you do. You don't have have a list of anybody that has said anything remotely resembling what this QAnon lady has said; burning forests in California. Kevin, you know she actually supported the assassination of your counterpart on the Democratic side, Nancy Pelosi."
"On that list of yours, 'I have a list of 237 Communists in the' -- what's wrong with you, Kevin?" the MSNBC host mocked the GOP lawmaker. "Do you think we're as stupid as you? Because I would love for you, go on the House floor today, Kevin, and give us the name of the Democrat who, before they were Democrat, called for your assassination, called for a bullet into your brain. Give us the names, Joe McCarthy or keep your mouth shut -- we're not that stupid."
