MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said Tuesday members of the media who assume Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a “rapist” should have a “D” next to their name to denote their affiliation with the Democratic party.
Kavanaugh has been accused by two different women of sexual misconduct and assault from over 35 years ago, but continues to maintain he is innocent. (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Says Substance Won’t Matter As Kavanaugh Hearings Will Come Down To Who Looks Better On Television)
“This three-hour block of time is a smear free zone. There will be no convicting of either person on either side on this show,” said Scarborough’s co-host Mika Brzezinski on “Morning Joe” Tuesday. “Honestly, if there’s smearing of Dr. Ford or Ms. Ramirez or Brett Kavanaugh on this show, you will be kicked off this set because we’re not doing that. It’s just facts.”
Scarborough then chimed in to denounce the legacy media for being politically partisan and said they should be rebuked for trying to convict Kavanaugh in the court of public opinion.
“We’ve been harshly critical of Fox News for being in the tank and being state television,” Scarborough declared. “What we’ve seen the last week has made me want to call networks and put a ‘D’ in front of the name of the so-called journalists that have already decided that Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist.”
