MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough couldn’t make up his mind about President Donald Trump’s economic performance and managed to contradict himself in less than two minutes Tuesday on “Morning Joe.”
“It’s so tactical! Donald Trump called the Democrats treasonous while the bottom was falling out of the market,” Scarborough said. “What he didn’t understand is that when people are losing as much money as they’re losing in their 401(k)s, they don’t give a damn what he’s saying in Ohio.”
“He says that, while the market is collapsing and what he had to find by the end of the day is nobody really cares about what he says when the market is in free fall,” Scarborough added.
Scarborough then pivoted and said the markets were simply course correcting and weren’t tied to the economic success of everyday Americans. He also admitted the economy is “getting a lot better.”
“The markets had a correction. There are many people nervous on Wall Street but let’s pull back and repeat what people always say. The stock market is not the economy. There’s a great divide between Wall Street and main street and often what is good news for America is bad news for Wall Street and that’s the case yesterday,” Scarborough said. “Wall Street’s panicking because the economy may be getting a lot better.”
