Donald Trump is under attack from all sides.
Never-Trump Republicans are almost more deranged by the president than #TheResistance.
And one TV host who backstabbed Trump said something disgusting about Republicans.
The election of Donald Trump forced many people in politics to show their true colors.
Trump’s election exposed a cadre of RINOs in television and print media.
Opposing Trump is one thing, but so-called Republicans like Ana Navarro, David Brooks, and Jennifer Rubin have abandoned all of their principles.
Another such example is MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.
Scarborough was a life-long Republican who was elected to Congress, but left the party to become an independent because of his hatred of Trump.
But that isn’t the whole story.
During the 2016 campaign, Scarborough had Trump on his show multiple times and had friendly conversations.
Scarborough even joked about being Trump’s running mate.
But all of that changed once Trump became the presumptive favorite to win the GOP primary.
After it became clear establishment candidate Jeb Bush was not the real threat to Hillary Clinton, Scarborough and other members of the media stabbed Trump in the back.
Now Scarborough took it a step further and threw the entire Republican Party under the bus.
During a segment on his show, Scarborough said, “Were all those liberals that said the GOP was racist and — all the things that I have been my entire life, evangelical, Southern Baptist, a proud southerner, you just go down the list.”
Apparently it’s possible for Scarborough to be a Republican and not racist, but not the other tens of millions of people in the party.
Scarborough continued, “Right now you look at it and, 95 percent of the people who voted for me when I was running a very different platform, they are all Trump supporters now.”
Scarborough is calling his own voters racist.
This is even worse than Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment because he’s trashing the same people who sent him to Congress.
Scarborough is either deeply dishonest, or he’s drunk too much MSNBC Kool-Aid if he can’t fathom why voters would choose Trump.
Meanwhile, black, Latino, and Jewish support for Trump is slowly climbing.
MSNBC can’t square this with their narrative, so they choose to ignore it.
But ignoring this trend will leave them shell-shocked in November once again.
While narrative is a powerful tool, it’s no substitute for the truth.
The reality is that Trump has achieved several big wins as president, and more people are beginning to see that.
Perhaps the worst thing about Scarborough’s treachery is that he doesn’t seem to believe in anything.
If he’s maintained his core values, there’s no way he can in good conscience shill for the Democrats on a daily basis.
They’re wild-eyed socialists who believe in open borders, 90% tax rates, wealth confiscation, and government-funded abortion up until the point of birth.
These are the people for whom Scarborough sold out his supporters.
