Joe Scarborough Tells Trump Supporters Their 'American Values Have Collapsed’
'Morning Joe' host takes shot at MAGA
MSNBC “Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough told supporters of Donald Trump that their values have “collapsed," citing “Trump terrorists" who breached the Capitol on Jan. 6.
Scarborough's remarks come as Trump faces impeachment for his supposed role in the riot at the U.S. Capitol in January.
Scarborough pointed to conservatives who spoke out against people kneeling for the national anthem.
He argued that those who were critical of the kneeling but not of the “Trump terrorists” using an American flag to beat a police officer had their American values “collapsed.”
Despite Scarborough's claims, Trump supporters are known to be open supporters of law enforcement.
“We have Trump terrorists — and call them by their name — they are Trump terrorists.'"
"We have Trump terrorists that beat cops to death," he said.
"We have cop killers in that crowd,” Scarborough emphasized.
"We have MAGA terrorists in that crowd that used the American flag — the American flag that so many people have fought and died for."
"That they held up at Iwo Jima at the beginning of a long and bloody battle that has gone before all of our troops of liberation through the years."
"They used that American flag to brutalize… a police officer."
"And they are worried about people kneeling. You can have that debate," he added.
"Mika and I have had that debate, all right?"
"But here, if you’re on the side, you can’t even kneel while the national anthem is being played, but you’re saying, ‘Let’s just forget about the fact that they used an American flag to brutalize a police officer,’ something is wrong with you."
"Your values have completely, your American values have collapsed because you’re worshipping a weak leader who has done nothing but lose in the last four years.”
