Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough criticized those in the media who have continuously dismissed Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s chances going forward, especially at anything that can be perceived as a misstep by Trump and his campaign.
Scarborough noted that in many instances, including following last week’s Wisconsin GOP presidential primary, there were many in the media declaring the end of the Trump presidential campaign to imminent.
“It’s always against Trump,” Scarborough said. “I mean, will they say it’s over? Seriously. The jackasses who have been doing this for nine months should stop embarrassing themselves. It’s getting really, really old.”
Scarborough also complained about people declaring him to be “in the tank for Trump” for dismissing the Trump’s naysayers.
“[W]hat’s insulting to me is you can’t state politically obvious things, right, without people saying you’re in the tank for Trump or, ah, you’re supporting Trump. No, no, no. We just can actually look at the earth and see the that the sun goes down and it’s actually not flat. But there have been a lot of flat-earthers out there for nine months right now, who’ve been writing stories in the mainstream media that Donald trump will never win. He’s a fool, he’s an idiot. When it looks like he could win, he’s Nazi, he’s a fascist.”
