#EndorseThis: Morning Joe’s Scarborough Challenges Trump: Prove You’re Not A Bigot!

Share
Scarborough

It wasn’t long ago that Matt Taibbi called the Morning Joe crew Donald Trump’s “lapdogs,” for their eager doting on the then-frontrunner. At the time, damning audio tape had just been published of Trump praising Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. “I watched your show this morning,” Donald Trump said. “You have me almost as a legendary figure, I like that.”

Since then, the duo seem to have made a concerted effort to harden their coverage of the presumptive nominee. And Joe Scarborough, the show’s anchor and a former Republican congressman, has taken the opportunity to defend his party from what, it has become increasingly clear, is an existential crisis.

“You’re acting like a bush league loser,” Scarborough starts. And it doesn’t get nicer from there.

  1. What a silly proposition.
    It is not for someone to prove he is not something such as a dishonest person or a bigot, but for the accusator to prove that.

    You don’t have to prove god does not exist.

      Its akin to asking someone if they still beat their wife? They are branded forever no matter if the person never touched his wife.

        Your comment is totally bogus. By asking someone if the “still” their wife you are implying that they did so in the past. Just making a statement does not brand someone as a wife beater unless there is some facts to back up the statement. Your is pure conjecture at best.

          Bill: My point was if someone said that to you in front of a group of people, many of the people would then believe you beat your wife. If someone calls you a bigot in front of people, then many of the people will assume you are a bigot. The statements don’t have to be true, but some will believe the worst no matter what.

            Why would someone ask me if I “still” beat my wife unless they have some evidence – bruises on my wife or her telling that person that I was abusing her. Claiming that some people would believe that is meaningless, those people would be making a judgment based on hearsay. These would be people that I wouldn’t care what they believe because they obviously don’t know me.

            Right; and people are called bigots or racists just because they don’t agree with someone Else’s ideas. Proof and facts don’t matter to some. They think by calling names, they can intimidate people into not expressing their opinions.

            I completely agree with you. Making up things though and using half statements are a ploy some politicians use and many voters fall into that trap. How many of us personally know any of the candidates running for any office? A political group or PAC can label one as a bigot, racist, wife beater, child abuser, etc. and then the candidate has to spend time and money trying to prove that it is a made up story. As the saying goes its a dirty business.

    Joe is A Beetle, on a piece of dingle berry-Rot , that will surface periodically to see which direction the ball infront of his face, is travelling . JOE does not know that “Mexican is not a RACE, Even La RAZA -Wronga, is so Stupid. Trumps comment on the Judge Curiel was severely contorted and Joe knows it. He expresses Kindergarten like Exasperation over comments by MIKAs indignations, the Princess of Righteousness. Pretentious , yes.

    Some bigoted WOMAN -SOTOMAYOR , Latina you think? Stated
    “ our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging. She’s basically saying her heritage will determine how she will find cases, not the merits of the case”.
    HEY, Joe the Lawyer, ….Why do Lawyers want to LOAD the JURY Pool with Jurors that will reflect positively on their case….even change the State in which the Trial is held?

    Joe you are a whining girlie man , and have lost all credibility. Go hide under MIkas skirt, you and like sheeple have been surrounded by “We the People” who have found you out. Found out that the Corporate -Congressional Corruption Pact will be finally stopped that used NAFTA to decimate the Middle Class who paid for Foreign jobs.

    Discuss that.

            You talk about Trump…well I would like to see you work as hard as Trump has and make the money he has. You couldn’t and wouldn’t.
            You would not work that hard.

            first off I research every thing I post as for the DUMPSTER being a coward draft dodger . you can look it up your self then you might not be as brain dead as the gang (I have faith in you im sure you will always be like the rest of them ) as for a fair trial for the DUMPSTER if he had it his way nobody has the right to rule over him for one reason or the other . some people don’t have to be so stupid (unless that’s what thy enjoy being ) just open your eyes and heck you would get a lot of info if you research your self (then you will see you also been fooled by the DUMPSTER and his B/S . here’s another thing you can research tell me after if you agree with the post ( D. Trump want to bang his daughter ) look that up watch the interview you then tell me if you thing the DUMPSTER if a sick perv. POS . again if you was to research you would understand more about your B/F the DUMPSTER and if you still feel good about the CLOWN CAR DRIVER after you research then you need prob. more help then he dose . here’s another search for you (did D. Trump rape his first wife and rip a patch of hair out of her head ) research your hero and if he is still your hero after that then you truly need help

I know he will take your money . he knows you are a bright guy and will be happy to take your money . you better hurry before its too last and you lose your chance to have something with you hero

    Donald Trump was never a serious political candidate until he made a speech that he would
    1) Send 11 million illegal non-citizens back to Mexico
    2) He would build a wall along the entire Mexican Border that no one could cross
    3) Mexico would pay to build the wall
    Immediately 20-25% of Republicans were backing “The Donald” for President. I won’t say that all people that back Trump are BIGOTS, but let’s face facts – the majority of Trump supporters are BIGOTS.

    1. itsfun June 8, 2016

      Sending law breakers back to Mexico is enforcing our existing laws, not being a bigot. Building a wall is for keeping illegal potential criminals out of the US, not being a bigot. Getting Mexico is not being a bigot, but good business instead. When people have no legitimate argument they just start yelling bigot and/or racist. Those are the facts.

PUTTHEAD and try to set up thing he can make money on while being Pres. in name only . he knows PUTTHEAD has maid $$BILLIONS being Pres. there and will try to make deals with him and ask him how he can make money . and PUTTHEAD will say do this and that it will cost American live’s but you will make a lot of money . he will say sounds worth it . then he will tell PUTTHEAD you know I dodged the draft 4 times and the 5th time I had to get daddy to pay a DR. to get me a get out of the draft free card

    The problem with the new found wisdom of Mika and Joe is they’ve seen this behavior since Donald made his announcement that he was a candidate for the office of the President. Now Joe is “Horrified” because “HIS” party is in a serious pickle with the base of the GOP and the reminder of the electorate. Well Joe, just as you demand the GOP leadership stop using Hillary as a reason not to call out Trump, you yourself (and Mika when she’s allowed to talk) don’t get the luxury of calling out Trump as a matter of course. Your outrage maybe genuine but it’s short of convincing me (and possibly others) that this was not part of some long term effort by the GOP to delegitimize Obama that’s finally gotten out of control where the masters (the party bosses that includes yourself) can no longer control the minions – the faithful GOP base who now feel liberated to say, behave and feel the way Trump is exploiting to his benefit. It’s been obvious for at least 6 months or more that this was going to happen and to NOW pretend that no one has warned the party leadership is disingenuous on the part of all the GOP leadership who are now acting shocked but are still unwilling to put the nation ahead of your party.

    November shall not get here soon enough for me to again watch another attempt by the GOP leadership to show the world with another autopsy of why the party again can’t win the big prize. Hate is not an ingredient to bring the country together. When an African American won a clear majority of the popular vote, instead of embracing his presidency for the benefit of the nation, the GOP went into “Angry White Man” mode that enabled groups like to Tea Party, the KKK, the Aryan Nation and other right wing hate groups to feel embolden to attack the first African American POTUS not on policy but if this was an illusion that someone other than a White Male should occupy the White House. Well, Hillary has now won the primary and given the complete meltdown of the GOP, she will undoubtedly win the White House in now small part because everyone the GOP has been attacking for the last 40 years is now willing to vote to prevent this moron from gaining access to the White House. So, this is all on you and the rest of the GOP. Keep telling yourself that Hillary is worse than Trump or anyone else you can muster to run for the White House. The damage is done and the only way to repair this is for a traditional group reemerges as the New GOP. The Southern Strategy has run its course and your base is shrinking with time. Maybe the next election cycle you’ll ignore the haters in your base and begin to reach out the rest of the nation with sound policies that help the majority of Americans and not the oligarchs. The nerve of Paul Ryan to make his blatant bait and switch with his war n poverty to put distance between himself and Trump …

    But keep thinking or hoping that the sheep are gullible to the detriment of your party. Voting Americans are ready to move forward with or without the current mutation of the GOP for the betterment of the majority.

    Am having a hard time listening to Scarborough’s rant after months of kissing the ample backside of Trump ….Trump has been who he IS for decades, it’s all out there, google it. He’s been a racist/bigot forever, he has been a misogynist forever, take the wax out or your ears and listen to the multitude of radio shows, interviews, it comes out of his OWN mouth, listen for Gods sake. Trump started his run with his announcement at Trump Towers attacking “Mexicans” with his disgusting remarks and has added to his list since! Listen to him, what he says is not ambiguous or veiled, it’s all out there for anyone to hear. The fact the Republican leadership can’t or won’t accept what he is plainly saying, promoting or threatening is blinding whatever common sense they MAY have had due to Republicans overwhelming lust for power and any chance at all in gaining the White House at whatever cost it may incur even if the cost is the destruction of the Republican Party and being portrayed for ever more as a political representation of the worst this country has to offer, racists, xenophobic bigots and haters to the nth degree!!!

    my thinking now is Hillary might be good to ask Bernie to be her running mate . if for nothing else between them both I believe thy have the country’s vote to beat the DUMPSTER . then there is Bernie that was (so thy say ) best one to beat the DUMPSTER thy do kind of like the same things and fight for them also . with the 2 of them in thy should be able to win and get things done . I like L Warren too a lot she has great idea’s pretty much more like Bernie . so with her age being younger I think Hillary should take Bernie for her first 4 years (witch should help to beat the DUMPSTER ) but then have L. Warren for her 2nd term . this way the country gets 16 years in the house breaking down the banks and filling up the loop-holes . to put the country on a level bases as in maybe getting the 1an2% rich greedy bastards to pay no more no less then a fair share of a %percentage% in taxes . if that happen then like in Bill’s watch the country was out of debt. with a surplus money in the bank . what that could do would be great . better ground dealing with China on trade deals . much better dealing with a country that you don’t owe so much money too

    Joe Scarborough is — yes — yelling a lot and firing off a long list of insulting things about Donald Trump (racist, bigot, bush league loser) but THEN he says he is not going to SUPPORT Trump UNTIL Trump gets his act together ??? So that he won’t “take my party down in the ditch.”
    WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU EVER SUPPORT SOMEONE YOU WOULD SAY ALL THOSE THINGS ABOUT ??? IS THIS SOMEONE YOU WOULD SUPPORT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. HOW WILL YOU KNOW HE HAS CHANGED ? CHANGED INTO WHAT ??
    “Prove to us that you deserve our support ???” Is this not the core of the man ?? They mistrust Hillary because they are not sure what we see is what she is. IT IS VERY CLEAR WHAT TRUMP IS — why on earth should we give him the chance to PRETEND he is something else so we can vote for him ?
