Joe Scarborough said Vice President Mike Pence has degraded himself by refusing to acknowledge the Democratic blue wave and will continue to agree with President Donald Trump at all costs.

“I look at Mike Pence and I just — I’m saddened by the fact that Mike feels like he has to lie to a reporter, needs to degrade himself for Donald Trump,” Scarborough said on “Morning Joe.” (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Ditches Blue Wave Talk And Predicts Tight Midterm Race)

“And saying that, well, we didn’t really see that blue wave — we had a great Tuesday. It would be funny if it weren’t so sad for this guy who was actually once not only a respected politician, but a respected man,” he continued.


Scarborough was originally pushing for a blue wave leading up to the midterms, but ended up hedging his bets the day before the election and said it would be incredibly close.

“Now [Pence] is giving Baghdad Bob a bad name, saying that they had a great Tuesday, and this is — I don’t know. I just — an editorial comment here, this is what repelled so many educated suburban voters, that Mike Pence and people like Mike Pence and their representatives would lie to try to line up with Donald Trump, and it catches up with them,” he said.

“It always catches up with them and they keep doing it. I mean, Tuesday was a massive blue wave, was it not? Especially in the House,” Scarborough concluded.
