‘Disgraceful On Every Level’: Morning Joe Panel Reacts To Trump’s CNN Town Hall



On Thursday, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough slammed CNN and Donald Trump for releasing a “virus of lies” on the public with a nationally televised town hall packed with the former president’s supporters.

During the town-hall, Trump launched into an amalgam of lies about his 2020 election loss, his sexual assault trial, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the classified documents debacle and other topics, and Scarborough was horrified the network would broadcast something like that.

“No surprises. It was a disgraceful performance,” Scarborough said. “I’m constantly telling people not to catastrophize over Trump, that he is actually going to lose because he keeps drilling down deeper and deeper into his base.”

“But it is — it is — I can’t believe I’m going to use catastrophizing language here, but it was just disgraceful on every level. It showed — I wouldn’t say it’s dangerous for democracy because we passed that a long time ago, but it showed the corrosive effects of Trumpism over eight years,” he added.

“I’ve got to say, the most shocking part was an audience who cheered on a president who tried to overturn American democracy, an audience that mocked and ridiculed the woman who a jury of her peers, Donald Trump’s peers, found had been sexually assaulted,” the Morning Joe host continued. “Those Americans there last night turned that into a punch line, laughed and dismissed cops getting the sh*t kicked out of them on Jan. 6, beaten up over and over again. Calling a cop a thug, who actually was trying to stop people from the House floor from being killed. I could go — I just could go on and on. Basically saying he would turn over Ukraine to Vladimir Putin.”

“You could go piece by piece by piece to talk about how breathtakingly dangerous what we saw was last night, this virus of lies that’s been loosened on the American people,” he said. “But what we saw last night was — it was a propagandist, and it was a propagandist spewing lies repeatedly over and over and over again, and an audience, an American audience. laughing it up. This isn’t Putin’s Russia. This is Trump’s slice of America. What I saw last night at least was as chilling as anything I’ve seen on television since Jan. 6.”
