MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tried to paint President Donald Trump as “desperate” and said he is attempting to cover up evidence of obstruction of justice without providing any proof, Friday on “Morning Joe.”

“It all seems to be desperate efforts to obstruct an investigation against him, which he said is a meaningless investigation. What are Americans to think of a president who is trying to do everything he can to stop an investigation against him,” Scarborough said.


Scarborough began listing actions taken by Trump that he disagreed with, but the host did not present any new evidence or facts that could stand up in a court of law. He relied purely on political differences and conjecture to make his point.

“This is just the latest of a long line of — to say curious — let’s just say disturbing acts that the President of the United States has taken toward law enforcement,” Scarborough said. “He had his FBI director come in, he demanded a loyalty oath, he didn’t get a loyalty oath. He then asked that he drop charges or drop an investigation against his national security adviser who he knew had broken the law. Comey wouldn’t do that.”

“He then fired his FBI director, bragged about it to Lester Holt, bragged about it to the Russians. Wanted to fire his attorney general, was pushed back by the Breitbart wing of his administration from firing Attorney General Jeff sessions, who wouldn’t listen to him and recused himself,” Scarborough continued. “Did what every lawyer said he had to do. I could name ten other things between that point and where we are this morning.”
