Scarborough on Liz Warren’s PP ‘Red Herring’: ‘Stop Insulting Our Intelligence’

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for her remarks aimed at Republicans aiming to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

Scarborough pointed out Warren was trying to conflate women’s health with this funding, which he deemed to be an insult to the public’s intelligence.

“I’m saying, conflating the right to choose with Planned Parenthood, conflating dollars with protecting women’s health, that’s just a red herring,” Scarborough said. “It has been set up that way so you can’t have this discussion without being against women’s health. But you can be against the funding of Planned Parenthood without being against the support of women’s health care. Nice try, Elizabeth.”

“There are troubling things on those tapes, and everybody needs to open their eyes instead of reflexively talking about right-wing attacks on a woman’s right to choose,” he added. “Please stop insulting our intelligence, Elizabeth Warren. Stop.”
