MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused Republicans seeking to rescue the American economy of wanting to “euthanize” senior citizens.
Scarborough made the comments – a rant you’d expect to hear from crying snowflakes on a liberal college campus – during his “Morning Joe” show on Thursday.
The former Republican congressman began by stating his personal belief that more Americans will die from coronavirus than have perished in every war combined.
Ready To Euthanize
Scarborough really fell off his rocker when he pivoted the conversation to existing funds allocated for the aviation industry in the coronavirus stimulus bill.
Despite Boeing CEO David Calhoun indicating he had no interest in accepting the bailout money, Joe drew a line between Republicans and the company.
And despite the Senate passing the stimulus legislation by a unanimous bipartisan 96-0 vote, he said this was evidence that the GOP alone wanted to sacrifice the lives of seniors.
“There is no doubt if you’re talking about the party of life right now … Democrats who are pro-choice actually look more pro-life because they’re [conservatives] only worried about the unborn,” Scarborough said.
“It is the born, it is the weakest among us, it is senior citizens who they’re ready to euthanize because they want Boeing’s corporate earnings to not dip too low.”
Odd hearing Scarborough come unglued like this just days after telling his viewers that “we have to do everything we can do to make sure this president succeeds.”
The Senate comes up with a financial bailout for the American people to right the economic ship, a bill that every single Democrat who could, voted in the affirmative, and we’ve gone from cheering on the President to claiming he and his colleagues want to murder seniors?
And he wasn’t done!
“They [Republicans] want to make sure that people that own businesses in their district or in their states will keep giving them campaign contributions,” Scarborough claimed.
“I grew up in a Baptist Church and I heard a lot about abortion on the front end of life and euthanizing seniors on the other side of life,” he continued. “That is killing.”

Scarborough seems to be conflating the stimulus bill and President Trump’s desire to get the American people back to work. The liberal media has claimed such a plan would cost people their lives.
Nevermind the fact that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a man that same media is propping up as a leader and possible presidential material, said almost the same exact thing.
Reminder …@NYGovCuomo: We want people to go back to work just like the federal government.
Media: Such bold leadership.@realDonaldTrump: We want people to go back to work.

Greg Gutfeld, co-host of “The Five” on Fox News, tore into the media for making these reckless accusations.
“It’s not about letting old people die, it’s about letting the young and the health and the people who are disease-free back into the workplace in specific areas of the country so you can protect grandma and grandpa,” he insisted.
Of Scarborough, he blasted him as an idiot.
Inject Greg Gutfeld going off on Joe Scarborough into my veins:
“This guy Scarborough is a nutbag and he’s been on the wrong side of everything.”

“This guy Scarborough is a nutbag and he’s been on the wrong side of everything,” Gutfeld declared. “If his terrible batting average had been in any other kind of employment other than TV commentary, he wouldn’t be employed.”
“It’s only in our employment, in our commentary world that an idiot like Joe Scarborough can still make a living.”
