MSNBC's Joe Scarborough ripped Senate Republicans for giving cover to "one-term loser" Donald Trump despite his putting their lives and political fortunes in danger by inciting an insurrection.
Few Republicans, if any, are expected to vote to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial in a year, and the "Morning Joe" host criticized their moral reasoning and their political instincts.
"These Republicans in congress proved a long time ago they don't give a damn about what's right and what's wrong," Scarborough said. "They care about power, they are driven by winning and they are now following cult-like, somebody that lost the White House, lost the Senate, lost the House of Representatives, the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice, will never hold office again, whether anybody passes a resolution or not. It's over for him, he's lost, he's out. He's a one-term loser, close the book on him, and yet they still worship him."
Their continued devotion doesn't make any sense with Trump out of the White House, he said.
"Why do they worship a man who has done more to damage the Republican Party -- this is not my opinion, historically, the first president since Herbert Hoover to lose the House, the Senate and presidency while -- after he got elected to his one term," Scarborough said. ""The biggest loser in the White House since Hoover, so why would some back-bench Qanon types and Kevin McCarthy still kowtow to this loser?"
