Watch: Scarborough Laughs at Jeb’s Asian ‘Anchor Babies’ Blunder

Tuesday on  MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Joe Scarborough laughed at Republican presidential candidate formerGov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) for saying the term “anchor babies” relates more to Asians than Hispanics yesterday at his press conference on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Scarborough said, “What are you going to do? What are you going to do, man? Why are we having this conversation in August? Why can’t my party get its hand out of the blender? When Hillary Clinton has FBI helicopters swirling around her headquarters? And is basically saying please, please, I’m obstructing justice. please take me away. And we’re talking about, it’s really the Asians’ fault, versus the Hispanics’ fault.”

He added, “So tell me when exactly is my Republican party going to get back into the White House? In the year 2525? This is a mess. Anchor babies, no, the Asians’ fault. not the Hispanics. it’s a mess.”
