“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough ripped Bill Clinton on Tuesday morning, saying the former president has “no shame” and that Democrats should agree that the past eight years were “disastrous.”

“I would ask if he has no shame, but he proved decades ago that he didn’t,” Scarborough said. “If [the Clintons] would just get out of the way and be gracious about this, there would be people carrying their water.”

Scarborough, who is a Republican, said the Democrats “have got to start looking forward.”

Former president Clinton recently said that “angry white men” voted for Trump elected.

“Oh my god,” Scarborough said in response. “If Hillary Clinton would have carried the same people that Barack Obama carried among these ‘angry white men,’ she would have been elected. … Those ‘angry white men’ that Bill Clinton is talking about are the same ‘angry white men’ that got him elected president.”

In a recent Vanity Fair interview, Scarborough and his co-host, Mika Brzezinski, denied that they have been cheerleaders for Trump. Though the pair sometimes feuded with Trump during the campaign, the New York Times has reported that Trump often seeks out Scarborough’s counsel.
