Scarborough Sends Brutal Message To ‘Trumpists’ – ‘America: Love It Or Leave It’

On Wednesday morning’s episode of “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough sent a brutal message to supporters of former President Donald Trump, telling them “America, love it or leave it.”

Scarborough Sounds Off

Scarborough began his rant by saying that there has been a shift from liberals hating everything about America to now “Trumpists” hating everything about the nation’s institutions that conservatives “were supposed to be protecting against the radical left.”

“[I] grew up having liberal professors, having liberal teachers, having liberals in the media, having liberals everywhere say America is in decline, it’s going to collapse,” Scarborough stated. “You know, I remember in seventh grade, my seventh-grade teacher saying America is going the way of the Roman Empire. And I thought back on that through the years, and I said, ‘Oh, poor, poor liberal.’”

Scarborough Doubles Down

“Now, we wake up … 40 years later and remember ‘America — love it or leave it?’ Like, everybody I know had those bumper stickers because the left hated the FBI, the left hated the CIA, the left hated the police, the left hated the military,” he continued. “That’s what we all believed; we would get the radicals saying this and that. I feel like saying that to Trumpists. America, love it or leave it.”

“The FBI who fights to protect and defend us, well, Trump Republicans, they’re responsible for 1/6,” Scarborough concluded. “They attacked the CIA. I could go on and on. They attack a 40-year veteran of the United States military who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s just — you name it, they hate it — all the institutions that we conservatives were supposed to be protecting against the radical left.”

Scarborough’s Previous Comments

Scarborough made similar comments back in May in another attack on Trump supporters.

“If you believe that, I will say to you what many of you said in the 1960s: America, love it or leave it,” Scarborough screamed, according to Newsweek. “If you don’t have respect in American democracy anymore if you don’t respect Madisonian checks and balances if your guy doesn’t win, if that’s the new rules of engagement for this great republic, then just leave our country because you’re unworthy of it.”
