During Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough slammed Senate Republicans for still giving cover to “one-term loser” Donald Trump despite his incitement of the violent Capitol siege that put their lives in danger.
Scarborough criticized their moral reasoning and their political instincts as few Republicans, if any, are expected to vote to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial in a year. He also accused them of “fearing a loser.”
“These Republicans in Congress proved a long time ago they don’t give a damn about what’s right and what’s wrong,” the “Morning Joe” host said. “They care about power, they are driven by winning and they are now following cult-like, somebody that lost the White House, lost the Senate, lost the House of Representatives, the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice, will never hold office again, whether anybody passes a resolution or not. It’s over for him, he’s lost, he’s out. He’s a one-term loser, close the book on him, and yet they still worship him,” he said.
He also blasted their continued devotion as nonsensical with Trump out of the White House.
“Why do they worship a man who has done more to damage the Republican Party — this is not my opinion, historically, the first president since Herbert Hoover to lose the House, the Senate and presidency while — after he got elected to his one term,” Scarborough said. “The biggest loser in the White House since Hoover, so why would some back-bench Qanon types and Kevin McCarthy still kowtow to this loser?”
