Joe Scarborough predicted “devastating” results for Republicans on “Morning Joe” Monday if they continue to support Brett Kavanaugh, particularly on women’s issues.
“This goes even beyond the #MeToo movement,” Scarborough said. “If the #MeToo movement had never happened, Republicans would still be able to read their poll numbers and see how poorly they were doing with women because of Donald Trump.” (RELATED: ‘Morning Joe’ Approves Of Brett Kavanaugh For The Supreme Court)
Scarborough claimed women’s reproductive rights will be a driving force behind the final vote on Kavanaugh and cited GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine as the main players.
“How does Lisa Murkowski, how does Susan Collins, how does any Republican senator that hopes to get educated, not just — not just college-educated, but any women who care about the issue of choice, how do you cast that vote?” he asked.
Scarborough said any senator who casts a yes vote for Kavanaugh will be tarnished due to the cloud hanging over him from recent sexual assault allegations.
“I hate to keep going back to it, but this is where we are right now. They will forever be branded as casting their vote for a man who has a cloud over his head,” he concluded. “No matter how fair or unfair that is, and that Supreme Court nominee will be the deciding vote on Roe v. Wade. The consequences for Republicans long-term — with women especially — could be devastating.”
