MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and ex-GOP political consultant Rick Wilson embarrassingly fell for a fake tweet in their eager attempts to smear President Trump.
Wilson, who the anti-Trump media actually believes is an intelligent man, was first to share the tweet which, despite the President’s penchant for bombastic rhetoric, is quite obviously a fake.
“If the Dow Joans ever falls more than 1000 ‘points’ in a Single Day the sitting president should be ‘loaded’ into a very big cannon and Shot into the sun at TREMENDOUS SPEED! No excuses!'” the tweet reads.
How Dumb Do You Have to Be?
We’d imagine most people would have come across such a message and instantly recognize it as an imposter. Not Wilson or Scarborough.
Wilson shared the tweet adding the caption, “I agree, Mr. President.”
His snarky response was only overshadowed by his obvious idiocy in thinking it was real.
Scarborough shared Wilson’s post and added his own mocking statement: “What if it drops more than 2,000 ‘points’ in a ‘Single day’?”
A Couple of Boomer Rubes
Monday marked one of the worst days in the history of the American stock market, dropping over 2,000 points due to a battle over oil prices between Saudi Arabia and Russia, along with fears surrounding the coronavirus.

Aside from the fact that their buffoonery was self-exposed, these clowns are actually celebrating a crashing of the American economy and the suffering of those affected.

And They Think TRUMP SUPPORTERS Are Dumb
Scarborough and Wilson, dynamic duo that they are, actually believe it is the President’s supporters who are dumb.
“Well, I’ll tell you what, it’s actually the responsibility to people that show up at those rallies to not be stupid, to not be so stupid that they should be kept away from blenders,” Scarborough previously said of MAGA fans.
Wilson meanwhile, a poor man’s Evan McMullin, very famously mocked conservatives as being far less intelligent than pundits on CNN, the JV of news media.
The arrogance, the dismissiveness, the smug cackling, the accents.
If Donald Trump wins re-election this year, I’ll remember this brief CNN segment late one Saturday night in January as the perfect encapsulation for why it happened. pic.twitter.com/8kQ6zN9AZV

And yet, here they are falling for a fake tweet. And not a very good fake at that.
Shaun Usher, the man behind the tweet, admitted long ago to creating it and adding, “Not for a second did I think people would believe that to be genuine.”
He obviously never met a pair of ‘boomer rubes‘ like Scarborough and Wilson.
