Scarborough: If You Question Trump Will Hurt Nation to Help Himself, ‘I Can’t Wait’ for You to ‘Go Down to Your Mom’s Basement

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarborough stated that President Trump will throw the nation’s best interest under the bus to benefit himself, and “if there’s anybody out there that questions that, I can’t wait for you to grab your Cheetos and put on your tighty whities and go down to your mom’s basement and start typing that blog away.” Scarborough also stated Republicans have “become the party of WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden.”

Scarborough said, “[T]he Wall Street Journal is now parroting Devin Nunes. The National Review certainly sounded like they came close to excusing or parroting Devin Nunes, all of them knowing better. All of them knowing that it’s the underlying information that is classified that the FBI and Donald Trump’s own Justice Department says we can’t show the public. They’re taking —  I mean, they’ve become the party of WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden. I guess it was only a matter of time until Donald Trump’s thinking infected the entire Republican Party, even on intel matters.”

He later added, “Donald Trump doesn’t give a damn about America’s national security classified information, as it pertains to him. He will throw anybody or anything under the bus, including the best interest of this nation, if he believes it will give him any advantage whatsoever. And if there’s anybody out there that questions that, I can’t wait for you to grab your Cheetos and put on your tighty-whities and go down to your mom’s basement and start typing that blog away. That will be interesting. And by the way, order up your Russian bots, okay, and you’re off to the races. But for Paul Ryan, for Mitch McConnell to stay quiet, for the Wall Street Journal editorial page to write the kind of editorial that they wrote on Saturday, attacking the FBI, and lending support, aid and comfort to Devin Nunes and Donald Trump, when they know better, when they have reporters that have been advancing this story and doing a good and honorable job, for them to slander the FBI and the Justice Department is just shocking.”
