MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough became upset over President Donald Trump attacking former FBI Director James Comey on “Morning Joe” Monday and compared the commander-in-chief to a “banana republic” dictator.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski mentioned the news of Trump’s tweet about Comey leaking classified documents to the press, prompting Scarborough to go off.
“You know, I just enough. Really seriously,” Scarborough said. “He’s been very deliberate. Donald Trump has tried to undermine the rule of law. He has trashed the FBI and the men and the women who protect our country everyday. He has trashed the Justice Department. He has pressured the Justice Department to go after a list of people including Hillary Clinton which is so outrageous, which is such a banana republic move. Which is something that you would expect from Latin America in the 1970s.”
Scarborough thinks it’s absurd for anyone to push for an investigation into Comey and Andrew McCabe, saying he believes Comey did not commit any crimes.
“That we’re actually seeing it happen, we’re hearing people talking about the possibility investigation of McCabe for crimes and now he’s talking about investing Comey for crimes — for materials that weren’t even classified when he wrote them,” Scarborough concluded.
This isn’t the first time the “Morning Joe” crew has referred to the Trump as a dictator. Back in June of last year, Brzezinski said the Trump administration “feels like a developing dictatorship,” and in January she referred to Trump as “the great dictator.” In February, New York Times reporter and “Morning Joe” regular Nick Confessore compared Trump to a third world dictator after he won the CPAC straw poll.
