For a guy who makes his living off free speech, Scarborough is ignorant of it.
From Business Insider:
"A bloody line has been crossed that cannot be ignored," Scarborough wrote in The Washington Post. "At long last, Donald Trump has left the Republican Party few options but to act decisively and get this political train wreck off the tracks before something terrible happens."
The "Morning Joe" anchor has appeared increasingly unnerved by Trump's refusal to tone down his occasionally authoritarian rhetoric. But Trump's suggestion Tuesday night that gun-rights advocates might try to stop Hillary Clinton from appointing Supreme Court justices was the tipping point.
"At this point, what else could Trump do that would be worse than implying the positive impact of a political assassination?" he asked.Trump said nothing of the kind.
Nor has Trump flim-flammed investors in Whitewater, illegally fired public servants in Travelgate, stolen furniture from the White House, bombed Libya which turned it over to the Islamic State, embraced Putin and mocked the "Cold War mentality," abandoned and left an ambassador and his staff to die, set up a tax-exempt foundation to launder foreign bribes, enriched his family by pocketing funds intended to aid Haiti, gotten a Western mole executed in Iran by sending American secrets in unsecured email....
All Trump has done is say a few things that upset the feckless. For all the conservative mocking of safe spaces and trigger warnings, they demand -- DEMAND I SAY -- Trump hush up.
Hillary has been a felonious, one-woman wrecking crew on foreign policy.
But Scarborough and the rest of the conservative commentariat want her to be elected president just to show that upstart Trump who owns the Republican Party.
Once again, Republicans say, vote for the crook, it's that important.
In criminal law, that's called aiding and abetting.
