Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, isn’t what you’d call a huge fan of President Trump. It’s probably a safe bet to go even farther and say that he loathes the man entirely.
Given his, shall we say, “distaste” for the current sitting president, it’s quite shocking to see him come out and slam the media for automatically assuming the guilt of SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh who is being accused of sexual assault by multiple individuals.
Yet plenty of Democrats — including some on the committee — have already declared that Kavanaugh is guilty, without hearing a word of sworn testimony from the accuser or, for that matter, Kavanaugh’s version of events.Advertisement - story continues below
But Scarborough, a former Republican congressman who is now an independent but espouses deeply liberal ideologies on his daily show, said Tuesday that some journalists are showing their left biases.
“We’ve been harshly critical of Fox News for being in the tank and being state television for Donald Trump —” he said.Trending:
“It’s both sides,” co-host Mika Brzezinski interrupted. “It’s everywhere. It’s mainstream. All across the board.”
Scarborough picked up: “Let me tell you something, what we’ve seen the last week has made me want to call networks and put a ‘D’ in front of the name of the so-called journalists that have already decided that Brett Kavanaughis a rapist.”Advertisement - story continues below
“It’s sick,” he said.
For once, this is something Scarborough has said that just about everyone with two nickels worth of common sense can agree with.
Both sides need an opportunity to be heard. A conversation weighing out all that’s discussed needs to be had, and then conclusions can be drawn. After evidence has been presented and weighed, not before.
The left, however, has already assumed the worst of Kavanaugh without even bothering to apply the whole “innocent until proven guilty” aspect of our legal system to this current situation.
Let’s hope this mess gets straightened out and that another conservative judge sits on the bench of the highest court in the land.
