MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” offered a closing argument against Roy Moore on Monday when longtime show regular Eddie Glaude Jr. called the Alabama Senate candidate a “bigot” and a pedophile.”
“I grew up in Moss Point, Mississippi, we’ve seen this kind of American madness before. We know what this is. We know exactly what it is. We know exactly who Roy Moore is. We’ve seen it. That person has been a part of my landscape since I was a young man,” said Glaude.
“He’s a bigot and he’s a bigot who’s running for U.S. Senate and he’s a pedophile,” Glaude added.
For those who may have been living under a rock for the last month, Moore is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct including from a woman who says he molested her in the 1970s when she was just 14.
The charges, first reported by the Washington Post, turned what would have been an easy race against Democrat Doug Jones into a nail-biter. Tuesday is election day.
“Morning Joe” also made hay of other Jones statements in recent weeks, including his assertion that America was better during the period that included slavery and that all amendments after the tenth should be done away with.
“The only thing that I’ve been grappling with this weekend is how this guy wins,” said Scarborough with solemnity. “If he does win, then everything I’ve been telling myself for the past 54 years about a new south that has moved forward, that has moved on, may actually not be the case.”
16 'Morning Joe' Trump Insults That Got Personal, From 'Schmuck' to 'Jackass' (Photos)
President Trump recently received a ton of criticism for sending out a pair of tweets about MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosts “Psycho” Joe Scarborough and “low I.Q. Crazy” Mika Brzezinski.
“She was bleeding badly from a face-lift,” he wrote of an encounter with Brzezinski he claims he had in Florida weeks before his inauguration.
While nothing can justify the president mocking a woman's appearance, the "Morning Joe" duo have been attacking Trump for months.
Check out 16 recent times the MSNBC stars said something that Trump could have taken personally.
They compared him to Kim Jong-un
“This is unprecedented, to have a president who behaves this way,” Brzezinski said on June 23. “It does feel like a developing dictatorship."
Brzezinski said what Bill Clinton was to sex, Trump is to "decency"
"What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this president is doing on issues of decency, on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news," Brzezinski said in June 15. "I think it's that simple and we're desensitized if we even argue it."
"If the president seems delusional about his accomplishments, you can point no further than that room," Brzezinski said in June 14. "There are no real men in the inner circle of the White House... none at all."
“Donald Trump, again, being a schmuck, thinking he can buy people’s integrity by inviting them over to the White House and wowing them,” Scarborough said on June 7 when discussing a dinner party at the White House. “That’s how he thinks. I know that first hand.”
Scarborough said Trump “is not a sane, rational human being”
“If any CEO, in a Fortune 500 company, was behaving this way, he or she would be removed immediately… they would take him out, he would have psychiatric evaluation and he would no longer be the CEO,” Scarborough said on June 6.
Scarborough called Trump a “bumbling dope” on May 11 because of the way a meeting with Russia’s Foreign Minister was handled.
“Looking at the front pages of the newspapers here… The Wall Street Journal also, you look, of course, at pictures. The shameful picture where the United States press corps was kept out but the Russians were allowed in,” Scarborough said while holding up the paper.
Scarborough slammed Trump on March 31, saying that Russians are lucky that POTUS is “stupid enough” to pick up their fake news.
“We’re obsessed on how the Russians have hacked, how the Russians have tried to impact this, how the Russians have tried to impact the White House,” Scarborough said. “We’re really just playing into their hands.”
