On his Wednesday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin derided MSNBC host Joe Scarborough as a “pathetic troll” who pretends to be a conservative.
Scarborough on Tuesday railed against “shrill” Republicans — including some GOP politicians and talk radio hosts — for supposedly caving on some fundamental political issues.
“There is a pathetic troll prancing around as a conservative — even a conservative intellectual,” Levin said. “I know, it’s funny. He goes by the name of Joe Scarborough, but I cannot believe that is really his name. So I’ve assigned him a name — ‘the morning schmo,’ because I hear it said that he has a TV program in the morning on ‘MSLSD.’ I wouldn’t be surprised. You got a whole conga line of morons and freaks on that network. But he’s the one that kicks it off with his sidekick, Mika Brzezinski. … Who the hell is he talking about in talk radio? I mean does he listen to talk radio?”
Levin, author of “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America,” went on to discuss Scarborough’s planned appearance at the National Review Institute Summit later this month, caustically suggesting the institute should consider inviting other MSNBC personalities, like Al Sharpton and Lawrence O’Donnell.
“He’s not a conservative, and he failed at talk radio,” Levin said. “Joe, don’t blame me. Don’t blame everybody else if you’re not important. I’m doing you a favor. I’m playing your voice on my program. I’m giving you attention — attention that many of my listeners don’t think you deserve, but here I am. I’m magnanimous toward you.”
