MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough criticized Donald Trump’s approach to the coronavirus pandemic on Monday as a chyron on “Morning Joe” highlighted the President’s social media behavior.
“TRUMP SPENDS MOTHER’S DAY TWEETING AND RETWEETING 100 TIMES,” the chyron read.
Scarborough: ‘America would be far better off’ if Trump left office
Co-host Mika Brzezinski asked Scarborough what the GOP could do to “make a difference” in the fight against the COVID-19 to potentially save more lives, to which Scarborough suggested that Trump should leave office because “America would be far better off.”

“So, Joe … I ask you, what could the Republicans do at this point?” Brzezinski pondered. “Who are the Republicans who could make a difference? And what is it that they could do? Why are they so afraid? Of course, the backdrop of this is if we all agree, that if something was said to this president, if they were able to close in on him, perhaps more lives could be saved.”
Scarborough replied, “Well, you know, people always talk about when Arizona conservative icon Barry Goldwater went to the White House and actually told Richard Nixon that it was time to leave. That’s not what we’re even asking here, though I believe America would be far better off.”

‘Morning Joe’ claims Americans would be safer if Trump wasn’t in the White House
“(S)enior citizens would be far safer. We could face this crisis far better if Donald Trump did leave office,” Scarborough continued.
“That’s not going to happen, but, you know, we’re not talking about 50 Republicans here,” the MSNBC host went on. “We’re not talking about 30 Republicans. Five Republicans going over there, saying, ‘Mr. President, we’re not asking you to leave, we’re just asking you to do your job.”
No we wouldn’t, we would still have you and the Dem jackasses to deal with! Dems are making everyone suffer! https://t.co/RCc1lwm3rO

“We have people suffering in our districts, we have people suffering in our states, we have to get people back to work, but your own doctors have been telling you for months now that can’t happen without a robust testing regimen where we can test and trace, Mr. President, and you keep refusing to do that,” he added.
Scarborough finishe, “You’re the only person in this government that can have a national approach to testing, to tracing, to treating, to doing the sort of things that we need to do to reopen our economies, to save our businesses in our states.”
What’s the requirement to get a job like those of @Morning_Joe and @morningmika? Be able to look straight at the camera and with a straight face spew lies? I hope they get paid a lot because it takes special ppl to do that.
