Shameless: Joe Scarborough Uses 9/11 To Bash Trump, Calls Him More ‘Damaging’

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has used the tragic terror incident of September 11th, to launch an attack on President Trump.

In an op-ed with the Washington Post, Scarborough said Trump was “damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could.”

Not the time.

Here’s Scarborough’s assessment:

On the eve of bin Laden’s attacks, America’s gross domestic product was nearly 10 times China’s and 40 times Russia’s. The U.S. military machine was unparalleled, with the Pentagon spending more on national defense than the next 15 countries combined. And despite those staggering outlays, Washington was running a $125 billion surplus.

Seventeen years later, endless wars abroad and reckless policies at home have produced annual deficits approaching $1 trillion. President Trump’s Republican Party will create more debt in one year than was generated in the first 200 years of America’s existence. And while the United States has been mired in endless wars and bloody occupations over the past 17 years, China has used that same period to aggressively develop economic partnerships across Asia, Europe, Latin America and Africa. Perhaps that is one reason China will soon overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy.

And, after mentioning missteps in the foreign policies of former President’s George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Scarborough said Trump’s moves are “maniacal” and pose a threat to national security.


Sixteen years of strategic missteps have been followed by the maniacal moves of a man who has savaged America’s vital alliances, provided comfort to hostile foreign powers, attacked our intelligence and military communities, and lent a sympathetic ear to neo-Nazis and white supremacists across the globe.

For those of us still believing that Islamic extremists hate America because of the freedoms we guarantee to all people, the gravest threat Trump poses to our national security is the damage done daily to America’s image.

Scarborough concludes: “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.”

Needless to say, some people online thought the comparison and timing could not have been worse:
