Shame on Morn Joe and give me a break

They brought Scarramucci on to explain why assholes like Trump. Mika said and asked, Trump's telling a lot of lies, and I don't think that's good for America. Do you think he's a good president? To which Scarramucci replied, In a lot of ways, he's a good president ...

at which point, I said, fuck this shit. I'm not listening ti this garbage and turned the sound off. Scarramucchi's whole thesis was that Trump assholes like Trump, because they feel forgotten and want him to take a wrecking ball to the country.

How sick is that? So basically, ReThuglicans have shipped good jobs overseas, refused to raise the minimum wage, closed factories, destroyed the unions, underfunded schools and infrastructure, made healthcare unobtainable, crashed the economy (several times) and --- did I leave anything out?

How sicko is that? We Dems had better wake up and GOTV out with very clear messaging.

"The only way to beat him blah blah..."

Bullshit. The way to "beat him" is to vote. Don't be complacent. No "both sides" crap. No excuses. Vote. Vote. Vote. Period. End of story.

This is not a popular president.

there are some good points he made in the discussion. I think blue collar economics made the difference in getting IQ45 elected. These are some of the people that I think Bernie Sanders won over, that for some reason, didn't think HRC would help them (even though she would). Instead, they listened to the lies about isolationism being good for America and bought into it.

.... In rebuking him. I believe that had this interview been aired with Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid, Etc, it would have been hailed as a great takedown of a right-wing shill masterfully done, but it's Morning Joe, so we can't have that. I'm also trying my best to ignore 99.9% of the time where the show is raking Trump over the coals in order to focus on one small interview and be on board with the OP.
I'm not having a lot of success.

Corey Lewendowski was on M$NBComcast yesterday telling America that the agenda matters not the lies.
