(USA Features) Donald Trump railed at MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and his wife, Mika Brzezinski, after the couple ripped Republicans for continuing to tout the former president’s policies.
On Monday, Scarborough said the GOP’s continued support for Trump supposedly represents “all the evidence of a serious cult,” adding “the more Republicans lose, the more of a personality cult Donald Trump seems to develop,” leading Brzezinski to respond it is “not even an exaggeration” to suggest it is a cult.
“The more Republicans lose, the more of a personality cult Donald Trump seems to develop,” Scarborough commented. “You can look at his losses in ‘17. You can look at his losses in ‘18 — historic losses.
“I mean, Republicans losing like they’ve never lost before in the House of Representatives, just as far as a pure, pure vote totals. (In 2019) they started losing governorships in the South, and then in ‘20, they lost the big race, lost the race for their presidency, lost Georgia, lost the Senate, lost the House,” he added.
“Rational parties” learn to “self-adjust and start electing candidates that can get elected” but Trump “is not that guy. He’s just not that guy, and we’ve seen time and time again that he puts, in many cases, people in a difficult position to win elections,” Scarborough continued.
In response, Trump suggested that the couple’s show ratings are tanking, which led them to attack him.
“Crazy Joe Scarborough and his blood-curdling, psycho wife (?), Mika, are going crazy because their ratings have absolutely TANKED,” the former president said in a statement issued through his website. “They are wrong too often and always predictable. They were right about me in 2016, but I did better in the 2020 Election with 12 million more votes. Stay tuned!”
