Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarborough speculated that President Donald Trump was “not disturbed” by a report that a U.S. Coast Guard officer had plotted a terror incident.
According to Scarborough, he was “fairly confident” about his assertion and accused Trump of churning those sentiments up.
“Take his words literally,” Scarborough said of the president. “He knows exactly what he’s doing. And he’s proven that he knows exactly what he’s doing. And, knowing him for 11 years, as I have, I’m fairly confident that he is not disturbed by the news report. In fact, I know he’s not disturbed by the news reports. He sees that as a sign of strength, and a sign of passionate support that he tries to churn up every day in his Twitter feed, he tries to churn up every time he calls the media the enemy of the people.”
