MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough accused President Donald Trump of declaring war on facts and America’s intelligence community Monday on “Morning Joe.”

“The intel community has proven itself time and time again to put America first,” Scarborough said. “You look, what Donald Trump’s own appointees are saying, what Dan Coats is saying, the director of national intelligence — but also what people like Bob Gates have been saying. What people like General Hayden have been saying.” (RELATED: Scarborough Scolds Trump Supporters For Not Fact Checking POTUS With Google)

Scarborough said Trump is attacking the intelligence community along with academia and journalists because they’re disrupting his political narratives and must be put down.


“It’s not a coincidence that Donald Trump is attacking the intel community, that he’s attacking journalists, that he’s attacking people in academia, that he’s attacking science. He attacks fact-based operations,” Scarborough continued.

He then accused Trump of being driven “crazy” by facts and claimed the president is lashing out with his own war against the truth.

“People who make their living and who live to gather facts and to put together the reality — and of course the intel community has facts about not only the last campaign, but about Vladimir Putin that drive Donald Trump absolutely crazy,” Scarborough concluded. “So, he has his war on facts and he has his war on the intel community.”
