RINO Joe Scarborough told his MSNBC audience something that is liable to get him booted out of the Democratic Media Club during a Wednesday show segment.
He and wife/co-host Mika Brzezinski were interviewing Washington Post columnist David Ignatius over a piece he wrote recently calling on President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to drop out of the 2024 race because they have a strong chance of losing to likely GOP nominee and former President Donald Trump.
Brzezinski appeared a little miffed by Ignatius’ conclusions, especially when he said he could not think of a Democrat to replace Biden.
“I think it comes down to what we were talking about earlier is Joe Biden, the person who can stop Donald Trump, or somebody like Trump who gets the Republican nomination?” Ignatius said during the segment. “That’s what he’s got to — He’s got to look in the mirror, search his soul and make that decision. And I wanted to raise that question. I’d like him to think that through carefully because I have my concerns.”
That’s when Scarborough dropped a bombshell.
“Just to answer David’s question,” he began. “Mika and I, everybody we talk to, every political discussion, all it talks a lot about Trump, but when it comes to Joe Biden, people say, ‘Man, he’s too old to run. He’s, and I mean, he’s not going to; he’s not really going to run…’”
“When I say every discussion, I don’t mean 99 percent of the discussion. Every discussion,” he clarified. “I asked Reverend Al if he was hearing it all the time on our show this past week. He’s hearing it as well.”
“So, you know, we often will complain about Republicans who will say one thing about Donald Trump off the air and another on air,” he added. “Well, let me just say, Democrats, off the air, will say ‘Joe Biden’s too old. Why is he running.’ On the air? They won’t say that.”
“So, I commend David for at least raising the question,” Scarborough concluded. “I mean, my question, of course, Willie, is who could do a better job as president? Is Joe Biden, and who can beat Donald Trump? I don’t see a lot of Democrats out there. I don’t see any Democrats out there right now that could do that.”
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), a former White House physician who served during the administrations of Presidents Obama and Trump, has been the most vocal Republican critic of President Biden’s alleged decline in mental status.
“All we care about in this country with regards to President Biden — 80 years old, who’s got some obvious cognitive issues — is a cognitive assessment of some sort. We want something on the record to prove to us he’s cognitively capable of doing this job, and it’s almost a moot point at this stage because we all know he’s not,” he told Fox News in March.
