“Morning Joe” Scarborough took a firm stance against President Donald Trump earlier in the day. The MSNBC host made a strong statement on Thursday following Trump’s pre-recorded video address from a day before.
As Trump claimed there is a wide-reaching conspiracy now trying to lock him out of the White House. Scarborough expressed disgust with the grim spectacle and its corrosive effects on American life.
He announced during his program, “The madness, the absolute madness of a president of these United States inside the Oval Office or inside the White House spewing conspiracy theories, in any prior time, his Cabinet would have gone in and they would have voted to remove him through the 25th Amendment.”
Plus he added, “They would have walked him away. In any prior time, any prior administration, this wouldn’t have happened.” Then argued, “But you have now too many Americans believing him, believing the bizarre conspiracy theories.”
Both Scarborough as well as his wife and co-host Mika Brzezinski famously had a falling out with Trump a few years ago.
They reportedly spent New Years’ 2017 at his Palm Beach, Florida property Mar-a-Lago. But soon after, things apparently went south.
In addition, he set sights on Trump’s faithful followers, Scarborugh declared people who believe President Donald Trump are in a “cult” and should “get help from mental health providers.” And he called them out.
“The people inside the cult and inside the Trump cult that actually believe this [pandemic] is a conspiracy because if you do, you are inside of a cult, and it’s dangerous, and you need to get help from mental health providers.”
Along with, “I would say you would need to go to church, but unfortunately, there’s so many liars behind the pulpit right now who are spreading Donald Trump’s lies.” Scarborough showing no mercy on that front.
Donald Trump has reportedly told more than 20,000 lies or misleading claims in his four years in the White House and it appears that he lies so much he believes every word he says.
When it comes to Trump lying about voter fraud and winning the election, his estranged niece, Mary Trump, says he isn’t just trying to fool American voters he is also fooling himself.
“He’s the only person I’ve ever met who can gaslight himself,” Mary Trump, a clinical psychologist, and critic of her uncle, told VICE News. “I don’t think he’s ever accepted the truth of the loss. I don’t think he’s psychologically or emotionally capable of that.”
Trump’s former personal attorney and “fixer,” Michael Cohen, agrees with Mary Trump’s view of Trump.
