MSNBC host Joe Scarborough delivered a furious rant on Thursday, dropping an f-bomb on live television while talking about the pro-Trump riots at the U.S. Capitol, calling for the arrests of President Trump, Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump Jr., for insurrection.
During a segment on the riots, the ‘Morning Joe’ host issued a fiery condemnation of the Capitol Police response to the mob, questioning why the group of predominately white Trump supporters were not forcefully stopped from breaching the complex.
“If these insurrectionists were black, they would have been shot in the face,” Scarborough said. “And, my god, if these insurrectionists were Muslim they would have been sniped from the top of buildings.”
“So I want to know from the Capitol Hill police — what, is it just white people? Or is it Donald Trump supporters? Why do you scream at people for walking across the street three blocks away from the Capitol? Why are you known as these badasses around the Capitol? But then Trump supporters come in and you open the f—ing doors for them. You open the doors for them and let them breach the people’s house. What is wrong with you?”
“Are we a nation of laws? Are we a nation of one man?” he asked.
The former GOP lawmaker then turned to Trump, his son and Giuliani, who held a rally with the same group of supporters just before the crowd stormed the federal building. The host said that their rhetoric contributed to the uprising.
“That’s insurrection against the United States of America and if Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump are not arrested today for insurrection and taken to jail and booked — and if the Capitol Hill police do not go through every video and look at the face of every person that invaded our Capitol and if they are not arrested and brought to justice today — then we are no longer a nation of laws and we only tell people they can do this again,” Scarborough said.
