Here’s what he said.
According to Breitbart News, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough attacked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene stating that Republicans won’t criticize her because they are scared.
“[I]t’s all, you know, this House, Kevin McCarthy’s House, is legitimately, legitimately a proper political target,” Scarborough advised. “You know … the Republicans spent an entire campaign trying to attach AOC’s politics — AOC has never actually threatened to kill a Republican, but Republicans have spent the past several years attaching AOC’s politics to everybody in the Democratic Party from Nancy Pelosi to Joe Biden. That’s illegitimate. It just is. I mean, because you look at the politics, you look at what Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi was mocking her caucus years ago on ’60 Minutes.’ So, that’s actually not as accurate as Democrats who are now attaching this woman to a Republican conference who won’t criticize her, who won’t take away her committee assignments, who won’t rebuke her. Kevin McCarthy is still scared of her.”
He continued, “And Willie, I just wonder whether Joni Ernst, John Thune and Mitch McConnell had to answer questions about the stupidity and the asinine tweets of Donald Trump for four years, whether they’re just sitting there going, ‘No, no. We’re off this train.’ Mitt Romney: ‘No, you know what? I’m going to actually, actually try to pass a bill without people having to ask me about an asinine, violent statement that a Republican made somewhere.’ It certainly seems the Republican senators, at least, are getting there.” You can watch a clip of Scarborough’s remarks here.
