Default MSNBC's Joe Scarborough slams Trump and supporters as 'openly racist'

Apparently, in the classical liberalism world, supporting Trump means you're a racist.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough slams Trump and supporters as 'openly racist'

Quote:
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took a shot at both President Trump and his supporters Friday, labeling both as “openly racist.”

The scathing comments during “Morning Joe,” which Scarborough co-hosts with Mika Brzezinski, came amid a highly controversial immigration debate over the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that led to children being separated from their parents after coming across the U.S. border.

Scarborough leveled that people “cannot say, ’Oh, I’m just supporting him because he’s giving them hell in Washington.' No, he’s been openly racist, just like we said back in December of 2015, openly racist.

“And if you support him, then you’re supporting that, and you are that,” Scarborough continued. “It’s that simple. And that’s what we’ve come to now.”

I don't watch this channel except clips of evening shows. joe already left the republican party so his show isnt as representative as it once may have been.

Joe Scarborough is a lifetime conservative (with a 95 percent lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union) and former Republican Congressman representing the 1st District of Florida from 1995-2001.

And yes, any conservative that supports classical liberalism would without hesitation identify the typical Trump supporter as a racist because Donald Trump is and has always been a racist. It's rather hard to imagine why anyone would continue to support Trump's racism in action as President if they're not a racist.

Now watch one of Trump's (racist) supporters challenge me to show Trump's racism in action but that's just too easy based upon the Trump administration.

The Hispanic asylum seekers from Central and South America that Trump's been incarcerating have a legal right to be in the United States under our immigration laws for refugees. The law grants them the right to be in the United States even if they've been forced to unlawfully cross the border so that they could apply for asylum because Trump refused to allow them to apply at a US port of entry.

The Trump administrations actions based upon "No Tolerance" are not about no tolerance for violating the law. Trump is violating the law by not allowing everyone seeking asylum at a port of entry to apply for asylum and to lawfully enter the United States. The "No Tolerance" is the racist no tolerance of "Mexicans" (Hispanics) by Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

If Trump was really a racist you or any of the other libs on the sute woulda posted real proof or evidence. Predictably, none of you have (nor will). It's easier to just make wild accusations without backing up your assertions with facts.

But if ya think you can show an example go for it. I'll be waiting. Because so far you've failed to do so.

On one hand, Joe (And MSNBC) helped enable Trump and his unamerican bullsh-t with the constant free air time. He was part of the allegedly liberal media that fanned the flames of a candidate-now-president the represents the worst of the American right. But his show has basically been an anti-Trump show since 6 months before the election, and just has steadily become more and more so as Donald Trump continues to co-opt his former party and principled conservatives get more and more pushed out.

Joe has renounced the GOP, has called Trump stupid repeatedly, and pulled no punches in their criticism of the administration. Trump was known to watch the show, and it was a source of massive irritation for him just how much they criticize him, before of course he switched to Fox and Friends to feed his snowflake ego.

If I were a conservative Republican I'd be pissed off too, and if I were Joe I'd want to atone as well.

Well you've ignored it when Trump told us Judge Curiel couldn't be fair on him because he's Mexican, impugning him because of his heritage.

You ignored it when Trump called for banning all Muslims from entering the US.(inb4 Islam isn't a race. Most of them are not white and at best-case scenario this is an insane stance predicated on extreme xenophobia)

You ignored it when he's referred to immigrants as "vermin", "infesting" the country.

You ignored it when he said there were very fine people on both sides in regards to the Charlottesville Neo-Nazi rally where one of them murdered a counter-protester.

You ignored when we went back to his and his dad's discriminatory behavior in the 1970s, trying to avoid letting African-Americans rent his apartments. And then the 1990s when he was sued repeatedly for refusing to hire blacks at his businesses, and when he took out a full-page ad in NY newspapers calling for the deaths of black and Latino teenagers after they were exonerated over the infamous Central Park Five case.

You loved that whole using "Pocahontas" as a derogatory slur to mock Sen. Warren.

There's plenty more to go around that indicates at a minimum the guy has some serious xenophobic tendencies. It's not that liberals, and moderates, and independents, and Democrats, and some Republicans have repeatedly show the evidence, it's that it's either ignored or just fine and dandy.
