Today is the 17 anniversary of the 9/11 attack. Most take the day to remember the men and women that died that day, to never forget them. But MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough decided to use 9/11 in a shameless way in his battle against President Donald Trump.
Scarborough wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post claiming that Trump was “damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could” and then posted a link to the story with a picture of the smoldering ashed of the World Trade Center:
He called Trump a “far graver threat” and noted this at the end of the article:
The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could.
A basic rule of thumb: never compare anything to such a horrific historical event with thousands of people who died. You disrespect the people.
And to say that Trump is somehow more damaging than that, that changed the landscape of our history and cost so many so much, is just vile.
Not to mention that Scarborough was a big supporter of Trump before he got elected. So if he was such an evil character, why didn’t he call him out before? You mean he’s just a hack opportunist trying to appeal to liberals? And this is what he thinks is appealing?
