Last night, at a campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona, the President of the United States held a despotic, authoritarian-style rally in which he defamed the free press, defended white supremacy, attacked senators from his own party, and incited a mob of his own supporters to rage.
Morning Joe host and former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough was almost at a loss for words.
The frequent subject of Trump’s 140-character ire seemed emotionally drained and vulnerable as he spoke from the heart about the devastating reality that our impulsive, undisciplined, hateful president has wrought on the United States.
Scarborough has a knack for expressing political analysis in powerful ways, but this is something more. Here, he goes for broke and lays out his heartache for all to see, and his pain is palpable.
This morning, Scarborough speaks for all of us.
