MSNBC host Joe Scarborough commemorated the anniversary of the tragic Oklahoma City bombing by making a bizarre comparison to the terrorist behind the attack and critics of the FBI.
The morning show host sent out a tweet Thursday afternoon sending “prayers” for Oklahoma city.
WATCH JOE ON COMEY:
“168 Americans were massacred this day in 1996 by a paranoid anti-government terrorist who saw the FBI and other law enforcement officers as the enemy. Prayers for Oklahoma City,” his tweet said.

The thinly veiled reference to “paranoid anti-government terrorist,” Timothy McVeigh, could be a jab at President Donald Trump.
McVeigh and Terry Nichols detonated a major truck bomb on April 19, 1995, outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. The attack killed 168 people and injured more than 680 others, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damages.
