Joe Scarborough: Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell are Co-Conspirators in Trump ‘Horror Show’

In the plainest of terms, Joe Scarborough believes that the Trump administration is a “horror show” and believes that establishment Republicans in Congress like Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and Kevin McCarthy are “co-conspirators.”

In a Friday morning harangue that shifted his typical animus focused on President Donald Trump, Scarborough opened Morning Joe by going off on GOP congress who, in his esteem, are “complicit by their action or, more importantly, by their silence.”

“The party of Lincoln and the party of Reagan, they’re suffering through a massive moral collapse,” he said, adding “It is sad and it is dangerous for this country and I believe it is the beginning of the end of my old party.”

Senator Graham caught the largest serving of Scarborough bile due to his complete transformation from a presidential candidate who warned the nation about Trump to one of his leading apologists/toadies.

The context of this particular jeremiad was the current government shutdown over border wall funding and the ostensible threat of declaring of a national emergency by the White House so that Trump can declare a political win.

We are now in the third week of the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.
