Joe Scarborough and NRO’s Jim Geraghty Feud on Twitter: ‘You’re Not Being Honest’

Geraghty ScarboroughNational Review‘s Jim Geraghty and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough got into a heated argument on Twitter Monday over whether or not Scarborough was a hypocrite when it came to criticizing Donald Trump.

Geraghty got things rolling by criticizing Scarborough in his “Morning Jolt” for his most recent column calling Trump critics out of touch and accusing them of denigrating Trump supporters. This was particularly ironic, Geraghty points out, since Scarborough himself wrote a column harshly criticizing Trump only a month ago.

“One month later, and Joe Scarborough is a lot madder at conservative critics of Trump than the candidate himself – even though the arguments mirror the ones the MSNBC host made back at the end of February,” Geraghty argues. “See, when Scarborough denounces Trump for sounding like a ‘Dixiecrat from the 1950s’ or ‘running on bigotry,’ it’s different.”

Probably not helping things was that Scarborough’s column called out by name Geraghty’s colleague Kevin Williamson as one of those elitist Trump haters.  “The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles,” Williamson wrote in March. “Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin.”

When Geraghty tweeted out his column, it earned the attention of Scarborough’s brother, a Donald Trump supporter.

After that, Joe weighed in and the argument began in earnest.
