MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has a well earned reputation for being, well, sort of a jerk. As it turns out, this is an accurate assumption of his personal character, one he helped prove accurate with his recent comments about President Trump and the insensitivity they showed on this somber day, the 17th anniversary of 9/11.
According to Scarborough, Trump has done far more damage to the American dream than the 9/11 terrorists did.
Shame on you, Joe.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, who helped promote the candidacy of Donald Trump throughout 2016, has a new op-ed out in the Washington Post where he argues that the president is “damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could”:
My Latest—> Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could. https://t.co/DEnYurEFmW

The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could.
Weird. He never seemed to express these concerns when he was friendly with then candidate Trump and allowed him to call into the show whenever he wanted:
What's it like to know you spent years helping elevate someone that you now say is more dangerous than 9/11 terrorists, Joe? https://t.co/IMW7Xk674h

This premise is freaking stupid, just provocative for the sake of being provocative. https://t.co/wZHtLIHpTQ

Ignore people like this today.
Focus on the memories of those who sacrificed themselves to save others.
Remember the day. https://t.co/x0xnEPFBrB

It's a good thing to keep an open mind, but not so much that your brains fall out. Reckless hyperbole like this, by the way, is one of the reasons Trump won in 2016. https://t.co/8dXvXfwimA

Yeah, Trump’s sooo dangerous for the American dream. Just look at how he’s increased small business optimism to record highs, reduced the tax burden for business owners, increased job creation, and lowered unemployment to all-time lows. How dare he!
This is a prime example of how foolish it makes a person look to place political agenda above facts and statistics, especially when those facts and statistics prove the very point you’re making wrong.
On top of that, today is about remembering the victims who lost their lives thanks to the horrifically evil ideology of mad men. It’s a time of somber reflection. What it isn’t is a time for politicization.
Grow up, Joe.
