After building Trump’s brand for most of the last year, now Joe Scarborough is pretending to be a man of principle:
Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” suggested business mogul Donald Trump’s refusal to disavow the Ku Klux Klan could disqualify him from the presidential race.
“It’s breathtaking. That is disqualifying right there,” Scarborough said Monday. “To say you don’t know about the Ku Klux Klan? You don’t know about David Duke?”
“Is he really so stupid that he thinks Southerners aren’t offended by the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke?” Scarborough continued. “Is he really so ignorant of Southern voters that he thinks this is the way to their heart? To go neutral, to play Switzerland when you’re talking about the Klan?”
