During Friday’s MSNBC broadcast of “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough slammed Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as “co-conspirators” in President Donald Trump’s “horror show” that is the continued partial government shutdown.
“We’re watching the political, ideological and moral collapse of my old Republican Party, lamented Scarborough. “Make no mistake, Donald Trump’s amorality is driving this collapse, but his Republican allies on Capitol Hill and in powerful positions across America are too eager and too willing to be his accomplices.”
He later added, “Trump is leading this horror show, but you know who I hold accountable? Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, Steve King — and all the Republicans on Capitol Hill that are ducking their heads. They are the co-conspirators, complicit by their action or, more importantly, by their silence. The party of Lincoln and the party of Reagan, they’re suffering through a massive moral collapse. It is sad and it is dangerous for this country and I believe it is the beginning of the end of my old party.”
