Joe Scarborough: Senate Republicans ‘Jackasses’ For Supporting Health Care Bill

Joe Scarborough — recalling his southern roots in a bold Summer searsucker — made it known on Morning Joe, Tuesday, that he was firmly against the Senate’s plan to overhaul the U.S. health care system. At one point, as his exasperation boiled over, the former Florida Congressman called GOP senators “jackasses.”

“Grandma and grandpa are coming home to live on the couch downstairs. Thrown out of the nursing home,” show regular Mike Barnicle, chortled.

“There is no attempt to hide the fact that Donald Trump is breaking every promise he made and that they will have a disproportionate, in fact hurting, older, middle income americans,” warned Scarborough.

Joe then took a moment to give a shoutout to the always funny @allahpundit — and his trenchant observations about the Senate health car bill.

“I’m gonna say what they are,” said Scarborough after everyone was done laughing. “You talk to these jackasses behind closed doors and you go ‘what are you doing’ and they go ‘we’ve got to get to the tax bill so we’ve got to do this first.'”

Scaborough did not hide his disdain for such thinking.

“So you’re going to just change 1/5th, 1/6th of the economy so we can get to a tax bill?” he exclaimed in disbelief.
