Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” turned into a laughter fest after host Joe Scarborough aired a new campaign ad for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that attacks Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In the ad, DeSantis is promoting campaign merchandise accusing the infectious disease expert of flip-flopping on his coronavirus recommendations as new evidence emerges about the deadly virus.
Scarborough burst into laughter, calling the ad “so stupid it should make your teeth hurt.”
“I thought his ads four years ago were the dumbest ads I’ve ever seen, where he’s reading Donald Trump bedtime stories to his baby. I bet he’s sorry he did that now, but this is just so stupid. I guess stupid people will like the ad, I don’t know. Maybe P.T. Barnum was right, a sucker is born every day, but to attack a guy because, well, the realities of a virus change, as the virus changes, as the virus moves, as the virus, you know, mutates, it just — again, the height of stupidity. Scarborough said, before adding: It got him elected last time, I suppose it will get him elected again this time,” he added, “but just, again, so stupid it should make your teeth hurt.”
