“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough, appearing on “Hardball” Thursday, ripped the candidates who took part in the happy hour debate saying, “[this is] why Donald Trump is doing well right now.”
Scarborough complained that the early debate was, “So pre-packaged. It was so calculated. It was so mechanical.”
Joe Scarborough: If anybody watched the pre-debate, they understand why Donald Trump is doing well right now. Because that was so pre-packaged. It was so calculated. It was so mechanical.
Chris Mathews: Good job of promoting our second block tonight.
Scarborough: No, No, No, it’s the truth. Only one candidate really broke through. So you looked at that and you said, ‘So this is why people are hungry for a candidate like Donald Trump that says Washington politicians just don’t get it.’
