Today’s quote comes to us from Joe Scarborough, co-host (with his wife, Mika Brzezinski) of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, and as avid a critic of Donald Trump as you can find on TV…
…which makes his comment, on yesterday’s show, that much more credible:
“We (he and Ms. Brzezinski) saw him for 12 years behind closed doors. Never, ever, once—I’ll say under oath, I’ll put into an affidavit—never once heard him say anything close to being racially insensitive. Never once.”
Joe Scarborough wins Quote Of The Day honors for taking time out from his daily Trump bashing to admit that – in private, when a person’s prejudices and accompanying ad hominems deriving from them, are most likely to be exposed – Donald Trump never made so much as a single racially insensitive comment.
I wonder how many of the media personalities who join Scarborough in bashing Trump every day could say the same.
Considering how many of them have no problem making such comments on air – showing the world their idea of “good racism”, such as attacking high school children for being White and Catholic – I doubt the number is very high.
