MSNBC’s Scarborough Questions If Warren Should Drop Out to Help ‘Efforts Against Bernie Sanders’

Scarborough also attacked the campaign of Tom Steyer Monday morning

On Monday’s “Morning Joe,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough questioned a number of Democratic presidential candidates and whether they should continue to fight for the nomination on the grounds that their ambition could bolster the campaigns of President Donald Trump or Sen. Bernie Sanders.

First, Scarborough took on Tom Steyer, the billionaire who continues to run ads in spite of not qualifying for debates. He questioned why Steyer, with all his money, hasn’t made the decision to fund other candidates’ races, before concluding, “It is a vanity project and been a vanity project for a very long time.”

He added that Steyer’s campaign is “a vanity project that could help re-elect Donald Trump.”

Later on the show, he went after Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar. He said people are questioning whether it’s time for the women to “get out” of the race, especially given how they’ve been doing in early primary states compared to Sanders, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg. If they’re not going to “get out,” they need to “over-perform,” according to the former GOP congressman.

“Amy Klobuchar — boy, she either has to really over-perform in South Carolina like she did in New Hampshire or she’s going to… It would make sense for her to get out of the race. Again, this isn’t my first rodeo,” he said.

Sanders won the weekend’s Nevada caucus, making the Democratic Socialist the frontrunner in the race against Trump’s reelection.
