Poor Joe Scarborough: the pro-Trump media is so mean to him! Squinty Joe opened this Mornings Squinty & Meat Puppet Show by moaning about how the pro-Trump media criticizes him for his
NB- Joe was awfully upset over being called out for having falsely claimed, as we noted, that "everybody saw [coronavirus] coming in early January." In fact, as late as March 10th, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio was on . . . Morning Joe, encouraging people to go about their lives normally, claiming there was "very little threat" for the majority of New Yorkers.
And Joe was similarly distressed for having been criticized when he retweeted a doctored video falsely suggesting that Vice President Mike Pence was carrying empty boxes of PPE as a photo op. Working to weasel out of that blooper, Scarborough came close to blaming his children, suggesting he was distracted because "actually being dad, I was running around." Those darn kids!
As Morning Joe viewers know, Scarborough likes to ride his verbal hobbyhorses into the ground. Today's was "fainting couch," with Scarborough repeatedly saying that Trump supporters in the media got on their fainting couches over Joe's "mistakes."
Be sure to check the end of the video, where Scarborough pretends to be on the verge of a breakdown as he imitates the outrage of the pro-Trump media. (No Oscar for you Joe)
Note: just yesterday, a supposedly contrite Scarborough, commenting on his Twitter feud with Sen. Ted Cruz over the doctored Pence video, tweeted, "I gotta work on some things myself. I've got to do better." That didn't last long!
