Joe Scarborough Rips ‘Oblivious’ Javanka Over Gaza Violence: ‘Completely Out of Touch’ With Reality


Joe Scarborough went after Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner on Tuesday for celebrating the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, supposedly blissfully unaware of the dozens of Palestinians in the Gaza strip being killed and injured by Israeli forces.

The remarks came as Morning Joe covered the horrific details of the border conflict and the international implications they might entail. As Scarborough spoke to David Ignatius about the reported 58 people who were killed and the thousands more who were wounded on Monday, he turned his ire towards Trump and Kushner for how they mostly shrugged it all off as they opened the embassy.

“For the rest of the world you actually saw an administration, a White House, and – we’ll say it since Ivanka Trump was there – a family completely out of touch with the realities of the region that they’re dealing with,” Scarborough said. “You had a split screen of what looked like a VIP camp at the Belmont Stakes, and they just seem totally oblivious to what was going on not so far away.”

“They don’t care,” Mika Brzezinski added.
