Joe Scarborough said Donald Trump “is letting our children get slaughtered,” stating both the president and the NRA have an “extremist view” Friday morning on MSNBC.


Talking to cohost Mike Brzezinski, Scarborough said, “And Mika, thoughts and prayers are fine, but why is Donald Trump impotent. Why is he impotent when it comes to this? He is supposed to be man of action.”

He then blamed Trump for school and church shootings.

“He is letting our children get slaughtered, week by week by week and it will happen again. He’s letting Christians that go to church get slaughtered. Like Pontius Pilate. Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, they’re just washing their hands of it. Like Pontius Pilate. Letting Christians get slaughtered. Letting country fans get slaughtered at concerts,” Scarborough said.

He continued, “I’ll say it one more time. There are extreme lobbyists as the NRA in Washington, D.C. That do not even represent the views of most NRA members across America. Most Republicans across America. Most conservatives across America. They like to say that anybody that doesn’t adopt their extremist view is no longer a conservative and lives in a bubble. No. It’s actually, they are the ones who are actually live in a bubble. And the consequences are bloody for our children.”
