Wednesday as he discussed a recent poll showing what Americans think reopening parts of the country without further testing, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough slammed President Donald Trump’s supporters who agree with the president that it is time to start reopening schools, restaurants and holding major sporting events with fans.
Scarborough said “Trumpists” are “not conservatives,” but rather “idiots” for attacking stay-at-home orders amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Even though I’m saying reopen the parks, let people walk on beaches, reopen public spaces, let people socially distance safely, let’s start figuring out a way to move towards reopening the economy, but reopening schools — 85% of Americans think this is a bad idea,” Scarborough outlined. “And yet, you have Donald Trump going out suggesting that schools reopen this year. You have the attorney general of the United States of America at the same time Donald Trump puts out guidelines that he’s now — he’s already forgotten the guidelines that he put out. So, these conservatives — not conservatives, they’re idiots. These Trumpists who think that they’re finding a way forward politically by attacking stay-at-home orders, they’re the 10%. They’re the 15%. They’re in the minority. If they think this is how they’re going to build the future of the Republican Party after Trump loses this fall, they are badly mistaken. And they can look at any polls, including Fox News polls.”
