Joe Scarborough challenged pro-lifers to come at him on “Morning Joe” Wednesday over his critique of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for allegedly snubbing a Parkland victim’s father.

The man who approached Kavanaugh, Fred Guttenberg, lost his daughter Jaime in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and claimed Kavanaugh snubbed him when he tried to approach the judge at his hearing. However, video shows that security personnel were the ones who intervened and ushered Kavanaugh away, as a safety precaution. (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Scolds Trump Supporters For Not Fact Checking The President With Google)

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah backed this reason up as well.

“As Judge Kavanaugh left for his lunch break, an unidentified individual approached him,” Shah tweeted Tuesday. “Before the Judge was able to shake his hand, security had intervened.”

“It’s one thing that the guy can’t get Congress to do the right thing and even pass reasonable background checks. Here he can’t even get a judge to shake his hand,” Scarborough said. “He’s the one who had to go to his 14-year-old daughter’s funeral and go to the grave site and bury his 14-year-old daughter.”


“Yeah, please, please, get on — get on your blog this morning and defend that lack of humanity, because you’re pro-life. Please, come at me. Attack me with your stupid words, because you’re pro-life,” he declared.

Scarborough continued to rant against his hypothetical critics and told them to go get “sucked down” the drain of the “inhumane” world of President Donald Trump.

“Why don’t you just get sucked down into this drain of this inhumane Trump world that we live in right now in politics,” he said.

“You really screwed up yesterday. You owe Fred an apology. Wonder if you’re that much of a human to do it. I doubt it. Because I’ve read your work before. We’ll be right back.”
