MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said the average American is too busy focusing on their jobs and living their lives to agonize over what President Donald Trump is saying, Wednesday on “Morning Joe.”

“People out there, you know, where I’ve lived my whole life, are kind of like, eh, I’m taking my kid to little league. They’re busy working,” Scarborough said. “It sends chills up my spine when the president questions the legitimacy of federal judges that rule against him. When he tries to denigrate the American court system, which has been what basically separates our constitutional republic from every other constitutional republic in the world, that independence? That frightens me.”


Under the Trump administration stock markets have risen to record highs and the unemployment rate has plummeted, specifically among the black community. Black unemployment dropped to 6.8 percent in December 2017 which is the lowest it’s been since the 1970s, according to the Department of Labor.

Scarborough said people are far more concerned with how they are going to pay for their child’s college tuition and put food on the table than with what comments are coming out of the White House.

“A guy who is working his ass off or a woman who is trying to make enough money to send their kids to college? They don’t have time to be frightened by that. They just want to know, they’ve got two kids, they’re having trouble making their mortgage payment. Are they going to be able to send their kid to college?” Scarborough continued.

He said the media has a right to be engraged because they are the focus of Trump’s attacks. Scarborough believes Trump is seeking to achieve absolute power over the United States.

“When the president talks about the media as being enemies of the people. I’m, I’m going to get really upset. And I’m going to know that this is what tyrants do when they’re trying to move towards being autocrats,” Scarborough said.
