In the enjoyment of watching the world of political punditry give their responses to Mueller’s testimony leaving us wondering if we were all watching the same show, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough takes the cake. He went so far as to reach out to Jesus himself yesterday: “Jesus, forgive me for ever being a Republican” Scarborough tweeted.
Jesus, forgive me for ever being a Republican.

While everyone races to determine the next steps after the underwhelming Mueller hearing yesterday, Joe has called the people to action. This morning Scarborough and his wife and co-host of Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski reacted to an op-ed in the National Review which laid out the argument that Democrats will not be able to defeat Trump in 2020 without “throwing a punch.”
The op-ed noted that “all along, Democrats were hoping the special counsel would do their dirty work. It’s the same mistake all of Trump’s opponents have made” and their push for yesterday’s testimony proves that. “In other words, pro-impeachment Democrats wanted Mueller to make the decision for them, to take responsibility for moving public opinion in their favored direction.
This is not how impeachment works under the Constitution, and it is not how political conflict works anyways” the op-ed stated. Now Joe Scarborough is calling upon voters to “roll up their sleeves and go after” President Trump or watch him win reelection in 2020. Morning Joe tweeted Scarborough’s PSA: If you want to stop Donald Trump, it is time to…roll up your sleeves and go after him and do whatever it takes to win. If you don’t do that, you’ll have [him] for four more years.”

Does Scarborough think he is a stand-up comic at open mic night? Because to insinuate that sleeves have not yet been “rolled up” or that Trump has not yet been “gone after” is laughable. Democrats, liberals, progressives, and the mainstream media have not stopped rolling up their sleeves and going after Trump for even a nanosecond since the day he announced he was running. You should know Joe, you’re among the mainstream media that has gone out of its way to jeopardize and obstruct any real work getting done.
Nonetheless Joe, we hope Jesus tweets you back soon!
