MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took a shot at President Trump and his supporters on Friday, marking them as “openly racist.”

The withering comments at “Morning Joe” Scarborough and co-hosts with Mika Brzezinski, came in the midst of a highly controversial debate over the management of the “zero-tolerance” policy, which is separately led to the children from their parents, after I cross the U.S. border.

Scarborough leveled, that people “can’t say, ‘Oh, I’m just supporting him because he gave them hell in Washington.’ No, he is openly racist, as we have said, in December 2015, open racist.

“And if you support him, then you’re support, and you continued,” of Scarborough. “As simple as that. And that is what we have, come now.”


The host shared similar comments earlier in the show, after a discussion about the whereabouts of the individual children.

“It is unbelievable. And, the knowledge of misery, what has made Donald Trump here,” Scarborough said. “And I must add, to challenge those who support Donald Trump for the blind, that send to young children … the younger children, removed 2,000 miles from where your parents are sending you to summer camp … the misery. The mindset, the misery, the depravity.

“You wonder, what actually happen is, the people you speak to, so that in the defense of the President,” he said, adding that he “deserves no defense. Certainly not in this case.”


Brzezinski said she thought Trump “, will be remembered forever as the President, the traumatized children”.

“I mean, he has built up to this moment, to the point where now he is the President of the United States of America, took our country on a collision course downhill, tearing at every seam, is the President of the abused young children,” she said. “And you can see in the White house is a sinking ship.”

They further claimed that Trump changed course on immigration, “because this is a massive PR error” and the administration “, from the looks of it.”

“It is disturbed, its offensive, its cruel, evil, and the whole world will be watching,” she added.

Scarborough, a former GOP Congressman from Florida, was not shy in his recent criticism of the trump administration’s immigration policy.

The talk about White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’ June 14 press briefing – in which case you are sparred with reporters about the separation of families trying to cross the border – Scarborough accused Sanders of excessive.

“So why do you lie so much?” Scarborough asked. “I know, children are torn from their mother’s arms, even while they are fed with mother’s milk. I know, children, they marched away, to take a shower, and marched off to take a shower. Tells you will are exactly like the Nazis said that they were among the people to the showers and then never came back,” he said.

The White house said the statements were “inflammatory and unacceptable.”
