Earlier, we posted about Joe Scarborough blasting rally goers in Montana for cheering attacks from President Donald Trump against Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and former President George H.W. Bush.
Later in Friday’s edition of Morning Joe, Scarborough took on two people who weren’t in that rally crowd — but whom Scarborough believes were cheering those shots at Bush and McCain just the same.
“Laura Ingraham. Sean Hannity,” Scarborough said — calling out two-thirds of the Fox News primetime lineup. “People who used to claim to be Republicans, but aren’t. Are not even close. I guess they never were. I guess it’s about being an anti-liberal instead of being a conservative.”
In Scarborough’s view, Hannity and Ingraham are willing to abandon their principles in exchange for a seat at the table.
“They’re not conservatives,” he said. “They’re all about power.”
Scarborough asserts that McCain and Bush were men that the likes of Hannity and Ingraham “bowed and scraped to” previously. These days, however, Scarborough says Hannity and Ingraham treat those men quite differently.
“Now they’re sitting there reveling at these two men as they lay dying,” Scarbrough said — pounding his desk. “What does that say? What are they?”
