On Tuesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough reacted to an interview posted on Bloomberg Politics with Mike Murphy, the head of the pro-Jeb Bush super PAC Right to Rise USA.
In that interview, Murphy says some disparaging things about Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. But according to Scarborough, the focus shouldn’t be put on Trump, but instead on Bush when it comes to his struggles in this stage of the Republican presidential primary contest.
“I will tell you this,” Scarborough said. “Jeb Bush has a problem. And Jeb Bush’s problem – please, I love you guys in Bush land. Jeb Bush has a problem. Jeb Bush’s problem is not Donald Trump. Jeb Bush’s problem is Jeb Bush. You all need to do 7,000-word interviews on why Jeb Bush is mad as hell at the Republican establishment and what he’s going to do to change it. It’s not Trump that is in his way. It’s Jeb that’s in his way.”
