MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough didn’t mince words as he lambasted Republicans for what he called their “staggering stupidity” on crucial election issues. He passionately argued that the GOP’s positions on the economy and immigration not only harm the nation but also undermine their own party’s interests.

In a scathing critique, Scarborough accused Republicans of actively working against measures that could bolster the economy and enhance border security. He asserted that this opposition was driven by a misguided strategy to hinder President Joe Biden and boost the chances of a Trump re-election, even at the expense of the country’s well-being.

Expressing his incredulity, Scarborough declared, “”If you take a step back, just looking at this politically, I just am baffled by just how stupid, baffled, baffled every day by how stupid Republicans are.” He vehemently criticized Donald Trump’s alleged preference for an economic downturn to secure political gains and pointed out the contradictory stance of the GOP on border security.

“Donald Trump has said already to Lou Dobbs he wants the economy to crash, he wants there to be a Great Depression. He wants people’s life savings wiped out and destroyed so he can be re-elected president. That’s the economy,” Scarborough said.

He added: “Now let’s talk about immigration. Republicans are saying, ‘This is the toughest border security bill we’ve ever gotten,’ but House Republicans are saying, ‘Let’s kill it.’ Donald Trump is saying, ‘Let’s kill it.’ On the two most important issues, we have the solutions to the best we’ve had in decades, and Donald Trump says no, and the House Republicans are going along and now the Senate. This is just — these are two campaign issues that Democrats should be able to absolutely trounce Republicans on.”

With frustration evident, Scarborough concluded by asserting, “They’re pro-Donald Trump. They’re not even pro-Republican Party! These actions hurt the Republican Party.”
