MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post Friday and referred to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as “Trump’s Chump.”

Scarborough said he doubts Trump will even finish his first term as president and then proceeded to lambaste Giuliani for daring to defend the commander-in-chief.

“Why America’s Mayor would now allow himself to become Trump’s chump is beyond me,” Scarborough writes. “With many West Wing insiders openly questioning whether the 45th president will even finish his term, such shortsightedness makes no sense, even when viewed in the most cynical of lights.”

Scarborough began by praising Giuliani but pivoted to mockery, and accused him of slandering law enforcement.

“Why do I choose today to excavate Giuliani’s record as mayor? Because this week, that same man became the latest public figure to assume the role of henchman for President Trump,” the article reads. “Stooping so low as to slander the very law-enforcement institutions that made New York’s remarkable renaissance possible.”

Scarborough said Giuliani sold out his beliefs to serve under Trump, then once again highlighted his obsession with Winston Churchill to prove his point.

“Giuliani has said that in September 2001, during New York’s darkest hour, he drew strength from Winston Churchill’s example,” he wrote. “And yet poor Rudy couldn’t even stay true to his former colleagues for a month once Trump came calling.”

“We can all thank God that Churchill, and not Giuliani, was on guard when Adolf Hitler’s actual stormtroopers sought to destroy England and lay waste to the rest of Western civilization,” Scarborough concluded. “Because unlike Rudy Giuliani, Winston Churchill never blinked.”
