MSNBC host Joe Scarborough must have been off his meds this past week when he decided to go on an unhinged rant about Trump supporters on his show. Scarborough screamed at Trump supporters on his program Friday, telling them to ‘get the hell out’ of the country.
“America, love it or leave it! If you don’t have respect in American democracy anymore, if you don’t respect Madisonian checks and balances, if your guy doesn’t win, if that’s the new rules of engagement for this great republic, then just leave our country! Because you’re unworthy of it!” Scarborough said on MSBC’s The Morning Joe.
Scarborough elaborated on this, explaining how millions of theoretical immigrants would both put full trust in American institutions and be better patriots than the Trump crowd.
“Millions of immigrants who will come here and raise their right hand and buy into the creed and believe that we are exceptional, that believe American democracy is the greatest government on the face of the earth! And they will do it proudly, they will salute the flag proudly, and most importantly they will fight for what that flag represents, while you shame yourself.”
He then goes on to argue that Trump supporters are a “disgrace our country in the eyes of the world.”
“Yes, this is all on you. Get the facts! Live in the light! Follow the truth! And love this country! And stop this! Or leave. Or leave. If you’re going to believe a reality-TV show host’s lies about the American republic, his desecration of American exceptionalism, then just get the hell out,” he continued. “We don’t want you here.”
Scarborough’s feelings towards those who disagree with him politically are just one among many Left-wing elites. Jimmy Kimmel recently had a similar segment bashing political opposition on his show, playing a video that featured doctors and nurses relentlessly ridiculing & insulting Americans who choose to not take the COVID-19 vaccine. One can only hope that Leftists in influential positions such as Scarborough’s will one day learn to treat those who think differently with a basic level of respect, but many are not holding their breath.
