MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough tore into future Donald Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn Monday for his history of tweeting Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, and just plain false stories from his Twitter account.
Scarborough was reacting to the news that a man threathened workers at a D.C. pizzeria with a rifle, based off the sort of fake stories Flynn has shared in the past. “General Flynn may have served admirably under Barack Obama. some people say he was very well respected there,” Scarborough began.

“But he has left a trail of crap behind him with retweets, with retweeting something about Jews, retweeting something about Muslims, retweeting fake news. He needs to clean this up,” he said.
“He needs to apologize to America,” Scarborough concluded. “He is in one of the most important positions in the White House on January the 20th, he needs to apologize for what he has done. Unrelated to this fake news story, but with the other fake news stories, the retweets about Jews, the retweets about Muslims.”
