Joe Scarborough may co-host a morning show on MSNBC, but make no mistake, he still considers himself a Republican. But other conservatives aren’t buying it, and tonight Sean Hannity tore into Scarborough for still trying to paint himself as still some big conservative who just has a lot of issues with the current incarnation of the GOP. Brent Bozell agreed, telling Scarborough he should stop calling himself a conservative.
Hannity mocked Scarborough for thinking he “speaks on behalf of all conservatives,” admitting that while he used to be friends with the former Republican congressman, he’s been over-the-top lately in his criticism of the NRA and the GOP. Bozell called Scarborough a “radical kook” for blaming the NRA for helping gun manufacturers profit off the mass slaughter of innocents.
Hannity also called out Scarborough for flip-flopping on guns, since he was very pro-Second Amendment as a congressman, and while Scarborough said that his thinking changed after Newtown, Hannity suspected that “he wants to be loved by the establishment.”
Bozell implored Scarborough to “please never call yourself a conservative again,” and told Hannity he is “so jealous of you” and other conservative pundits who have enjoyed much more success than he has.
