Morning Joe Shames Lindsey Graham For Admitting He Told McCain to Give Dossier to FBI: You Let Trump ‘Trash’ Him

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski lambasted Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Tuesday over his response to President Donald Trump‘s attacks on his late friend, John McCain.

As Morning Joe reviewed the press conference Graham held on the conclusion of Robert Mueller‘s investigation, Scarborough focused on how Graham said he advised McCain to submit the Steele dossier to the FBI. That revelation drew scorn from Scarborough, since Graham remained mostly silent as the president attacked McCain because it was recently reported that the late senator passed the dossier to the FBI during the 2016 election.

“That person has a lot to answer to to the voters of South Carolina,” Scarborough said. “We got to figure that out.”

As Scarborough and his panel reacted to Graham’s admission, Brzezinski mockingly told Graham through the TV that he doesn’t have to worry because “Donald never watches our show…except every day.”

“Lindsey, let’s hope he is not watching right now, and let’s hope none of your Republican voters in South Carolina know that you were actually the one who sat and watched Donald Trump trash the memory of an American war hero for weeks,” Scarborough said. “And didn’t let him know or your voters in South Carolina know that you were the one that told John McCain to pass the dossier on to the FBI.”

Scarborough continued by expressing his disgust with how Graham failed to take a stand while the McCain family dealt with Trump’s vitriolic attacks. Morning Joe aired videos of Trump attacking McCain over the move — with Mike Barnicle calling the situation “pretty sad.”
