We’re accustomed to insane, TDS-inspired hysteria from MSNBC and, in particular, Joe Scarborough, but this caught us off-guard anyway. It’s common for cable news liberals to exaggerate – wildly – the threat posed by President Donald Trump, and it’s common for them to compare him to various worldwide strongmen dictators, including Russian President Vladimir Putin. But we’re pretty sure this is the first time we ever heard one of these anchors actually suggest that Trump would put journalists to death if only he thought he could get away with it. That’s…that’s another level of insanity.
Scarborough spent his “Morning Joe” program on Monday worrying himself over Trump’s behavior in that “60 Minutes” interview with Lesley Stahl. Trump, of course, eventually got tired of Stahl’s hostile attitude and cut the interview short before posting it in raw form hours before the program ever aired. Now, you can decide for yourself whether or not this was a great moment in presidential history. You can decide if Trump ought to be nicer and more polite to liberal hacks who only exist to give cover for Joe Biden.
But since when is there any comparison between walking out of an interview…and KILLING the reporter?
“It’s really fascinating at this point to look how much Donald Trump resembles an autocratic leader from Eastern Europe, whether it’s Belarus or whether it’s Russia,” Scarborough said. “Actually, though he kills journalists, Vladimir Putin on camera actually seems a little more willing to answer tough questions when they’re asked of him.
“Donald Trump can’t even handle that. Of course, Donald Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it,” he continued. “I think even his strongest supporters would admit Trump would do whatever he could get away with. It’s unfortunate for him that he actually is in charge of the executive branch in a country with a constitution that was written by James Madison and others who actually foresaw the rise of tyrants, and figured out a pretty damn good effective way to hold them at bay.”
Trump, of course, makes no secret of his antipathy for the press, but let’s face it…he kinda loves them, too. He knows their agenda. He knows what they’re all about. But he also takes relish in beating them back with the handle of their own hammer. And yes, Joe, we mean that metaphorically, you simpleton.
Now let’s go back through all of the journalists and leftists who blatantly prayed that Trump would die from COVID. And then let’s talk about who would kill whom if they had the chance.
