Scarborough Goes After GOP Congress: ‘Toxic Mix’ of Iran Letter and Netanyahu ‘Stupid’

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough conceded Monday morning that the “one-two punch” of the House GOP’s Benjamin Netanyahu invitation and Senator Tom Cotton’s (R-AR) letter to Iranian leaders disparaging the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations was a little much in the aggregate.

“If you just asked me about Netanyahu, I’d say ‘It’s happened before. He can show up,'” the former legislator said. “If you ask me about the letter, taken apart, I go, ‘You know what? Freshmen do stuff like that. It was stupid.'”

“But there’s something about those two accesses in tandem, together, a couple weeks apart, that I must agree with a lot of really smart writers at [the Washington Post] and the New York Times, that taken together…I do think it has a really toxic mix about how dysfunctional the United States of America is right now.”

Scarborough had to give a tip of the hat to cohost Mika Brzezinski, who’s been saying this stuff for weeks.
