Scarborough Rips Fox News For Continued ‘Obsession’ With Clinton: ‘Just Laughable’
Morning Joe led off Monday with a quick recap of Sunday night’s absolutely bonkers Game 5 of the World Series. But we’re highly skeptical that host Joe Scarborough actually saw it.
Why? Because those of us who stayed up to watch Alex Bregman drive in the game-winning run to give the Houston Astros a dramatic 13-12 extra-inning victory over the L.A. Dodgers are struggling mightily to find energy this early morning, after staying up ’til nearly 2:00 a.m. ET. But Scarborough — in a blistering critique of Fox News — showed absolutely no signs of lethargy.
The Morning Joe host ripped Fox News for their continued focus on Hillary Clinton, just hours in advance of the reported announcement of the first indictment in special counsel Robert Mueller‘s Russia probe. As part of Scarborough’s Fox News takedown, a clip was played from a widely-criticized segment of Fox & Friends Saturday, in which President Donald Trump‘s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said, “What we should be focusing on are the continued lies of the Clinton administration.”
Scarborough was incredulous.
“There is such an obsession on Hillary Clinton,” Scarborough said. He added, “I cannot remember even reading about a presidency that nine months, ten months into the White House are still obsessed with a candidate who lost, who was never President of the United States.”
The Morning Joe host believes, in this case, that Trump and those in the White House will follow the lead of Fox News (or perhaps it is the other way around) and continue to speculate about charges against Hillary Clinton amid the heat of the Mueller probe.
“That’s what the Trump Administration and all of his cronies are doing now. It’s just laughable,” Scarborough said. He added, “And I do wonder, who is stupid enough in the United States of America, to actually buy into this?”
