The White house criticized MSNBC star Joe Scarborough Friday that the “Morning Joe” hosts in the comparison of the methods used in the current immigration policy of the Nazis.
The White house came out swinging Friday against MSNBC star Joe Scarborough, after the former Republican Congressman used in the comparison of the methods in the current immigration policy of the Nazis.
The talk about White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’ Thursday press briefing in which they sparred with reporters about the separation of families, the attempt to try to enter the southern border – Scarborough accused Sanders of excessive lying on his “Morning Joe” program.
“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.
“Do you think you would trick another like, ‘Hey, I have over a slurpee in the room.’ “Let’s go get a slurpee,'” he continued. “That would be better than” We are on the way to the showers, and we will be right back” and never come back.”
“It is appalling that Joe Scarborough compare sworn federal law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line every day to American people sure to the Nazis, the” White house Deputy spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement to Fox News. “This is the kind of inflammatory and unacceptable rhetoric, a target disc on the back of our large law enforcement agencies.
“It is also a terrible insult to the memory of the 6 million Jews died in the Nazi Holocaust. Not only the rhetoric is Scarborough shameful, but his facts are categorically wrong. When American citizens break the law, they are separated from their children and followed. It is unclear why Scarborough is of the opinion that illegal aliens are entitled to more rights than those granted to American citizens. While Scarborough is fast to start, in his straight-to-camera outrage over the temporary separation of illegal alien families, he has never shown similar outrage for the permanent separation of American families forever torn apart from their children, who were killed by criminal aliens as a result of the Democrats ” open borders policy,” Gidley continued.
“If Joe Scarborough really about keeping illegal alien families together, he would use his platform to support the trump Administration’s efforts to close the gaps in Federal immigration law,” the statement said.
During the Friday segment with Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, John Heilemann and Willie geist, the former Republican parsed, if, in his judgment, Sanders was “lying” or just “ignorant.”
To quote “for someone of the Bible, as much as you quote the Bible, that is why I hope that you are just totally ignorant, and not lying on purpose to the American people, many times, Mika, that would be terrible,” he said.
“It is a commandment against lying,” Scarborough said later in the conversation.
“It is also not based biblically, that they rip children from their parents. I think it was Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who said: ‘let the little children come.'”
A request for comment, of Scarborough, was not immediately returned.
