Venom-Spewing Hater Scarborough: Cruz, Hawley ‘Wanted’ Capitol Rioters to Beat, Kill

Is Joe Scarborough sick, or simply driven by the desire for attention and ratings?

The question arises after Scarborough, on today’s Morning Joe, once again leveled what can only be described as an insane allegation regarding the Capitol breach.

Said Scarborough:

“Police officers were beaten and brutalized with American flags, had their heads shoved in the door by Trump terrorists, beat cops where, again, police officers, were sure they were going to die and were thinking about their four children and how they were going to take care of them. 

But these Trump terrorists kept beating, battering and abusing them. Why? Because that’s what Ted Cruz, and Josh Hawley, and Donald Trump wanted them to do.” 

 

 

Can Scarborough truly believe such vile nonsense? Ultimately, perhaps only a pastor or a shrink will be able to say. But today’s allegation is in line with other such wild accusations that Scarborough has made, as when we recently caught him somehow saying that Hawley is “the person most responsible for a police officer being beaten to death.”

And going back to October, Scarborough, speaking of Covid deaths, actually said of President Trump that:

“Nobody’s ever done so much to kill so many people. That is correct. Nobody.”

So: Scarborough sick, or simply driven by a desire for ratings? This NewsBuster inclines toward the “sick” option.

Ever since Trump infamously tweeted about Joe’s wife Mika supposedly “bleeding from the face,” and thereafter suggested that Scarborough is responsible for the death of an aide, Scarborough seems driven by rage and a desire for vengeance against Trump and his supporters. 

Joe Scarborough claiming Capitol rioters continued to beat cops because Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, and Donald Trump wanted them to do so was sponsored in part by Liberty Mutual.

Here’s the transcript.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: We talked about Donald Trump this weekend, pushing the big lie, continuing to spread the deadly conspiracy theory that Democrats somehow stole the 2020 election from him. You have Mike Pence doing a nod and wink to it in an op-ed. 

And you have a lot of Republicans in the House of Representatives still lying through their teeth, even after the violence, even after the police officers were beaten and brutalized with American flags, had their heads shoved in the door by Trump terrorists, beat cops where, again, police officers, were sure they were going to die and were thinking about their four children and how they were going to take care of them. 

But these Trump terrorists kept beating, and battering, and abusing them. Why? Because that’s what Ted Cruz, and Josh Hawley, and Donald Trump wanted them to do. They wanted them to come to the Capitol. It’s what Don Jr. wanted. It’s what Rudy Giuliani talking about “combat justice” wanted them to do. Wanted them to come up to the Capitol and be rough. Be tough, as Donald Trump said. To stop the counting. That’s exactly what they did.
