Joe Scarborough Lampoons Donald Trump For ‘Tripling Down’ On His Support For Putin
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Monday slammed Donald Trump for his recent comments in support of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin on the one-year anniversary of the Ukraine invasion.
Scarborough’s tirade against Trump came in response Reacting to a new video compilation of comments made by the former President, starting back in 2018 where he praised Russian President Vladimir Putin and cast doubt on American intelligence services.
“How fascinating and how unpatriotic that Donald Trump sides with Vladimir Putin in 2018,” the ‘Morning Joe’ host said. “He comes back, he backs off of it after being criticized, and now he’s back to siding with Vladimir Putin over intel agencies and openly mocking intel agencies.”
“When he said what might be the toughest question I was ever asked? He got a laugh from the crowd. That tells you exactly where the base is. They think it’s funny. They think it’s funny that we Americans, that we God-loving, patriot-loving Americans would trust our own professionals that are trying to keep us safe more than the ex-KGB agent,” Scarborough continued.
He then pointed out that Trump is “doubling down, tripling down” on his Putin support.
“Donald Trump thinks that’s funny, the people in the audience thought that was funny,” he added. “And at the end of the day, Donald Trump is where he was when you asked the question in 2018. He trusts Vladimir Putin, he says, more than he trusts the professionals at America’s intelligence agencies: people who risk their lives every day to stop the next terrorist attack against America.”
