“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough went off on Trump’s campaign rally in Arizona Tuesday night, saying that it was “hateful” and “frightening.”
Scarborough said on the MSNBC show Wednesday morning that Trump’s speech is a “disaster” for the country and for “his long-term political health.”
“This was Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpAssange meets U.S. congressman, vows to prove Russia did not leak him documents A history lesson on the Confederacy for President Trump GOP senator: Trump hasn’t ‘changed much’ since campaign MORE at his worst,” Scarborough said.
“The president follows up a scripted speech one day with an absolute disaster the next day,” Scarborough said, referencing Trump’s Arizona rally in comparison to his prime-time address on Afghanistan strategy Monday night.
“There’s no doubt this was a hateful, derisive speech,” he said. “He sounded like an autocrat trying to dehumanize his allies.”
