Scarborough Scolds Trump For Pence’s NFL Walkout [VIDEO]

“Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough blamed President Donald Trump for Vice President Mike Pence’s NFL walkout and compared Trump to a reality TV star and talk radio host Monday.

“He forces his vice president to go to Indianapolis to do a stunt that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Ties up the Secret Service. Inconveniences the good people of Indiana. And we’re left with a president who’s nothing more than a reality TV guy and doubling as a talk radio show host,” he said.

Pence left the Indianapolis Colts game early Sunday, after several players took a knee during the national anthem.

Scarborough also called Trump “self destructive” for his feud with GOP Sen. Bob Corker and said if Trump keeps burning bridges with Republicans he will never get tax reform or heath care through Congress.

“When you have the president blowing up bridges to tax reform and being self destructive again. And he’s done it and he’s doing it with Bob Corker. Suddenly again, tax reform doesn’t look like that’s possible. Health care doesn’t look like that’s possible,” he said.
