Joe Scarborough: It’s a Witch Hunt Where All The Witches Just Land on the Front Lawn
Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) was arrested and charged with securities fraud this week, and on Morning Joe on Thursday, the show began with a clip of Collins, one of Donald Trump‘s first supporters in Congress, announcing his second of the nomination of Trump to be the Republican nominee at the 2016 convention.
After the clip played, co-host Mika Brzezinski showed on screen a tweet from Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake:
List of people charged with/pleading to crimes:
-Trump's 2nd campaign manager
-Trump's deputy campaign manager
-Trump's national security adviser
-Trump's foreign policy adviser
-Trump's 1st campaign manager (battery charges later dropped)
-Trump's first congressional endorser

“Hey, I’m no special counsel,” said host Joe Scarborough. “But it kind of feels like there’s a pattern here and maybe, maybe one of these witch hunts where you just walk out of your front door and all the witches are landing in your front lawn.”
“Right there in the yard,” said Brzezinski, as Scarborough made the sound of witch after witch landing.
At the time of this post, President Trump has not yet used “witch hunt” in a tweet so far today.
