Joe Scarborough Mocks Trump After GOP Virginia Governor Candidate Avoids His Rally: ‘Embarrassing’

MSNBC host says Glenn Younkin’s treatment of Trump is ”pretty embarrassing“ for former president

Former president Donald Trump rallied for Virginia Republican Glenn Youngkin Monday night, one day before the candidate’s gubernatorial election. Youngkin wasn’t involved in Trump’s virtual rally, though, and “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough thought that was hilarious.

“Are you telling me Youngkin put Trump in a lockbox so small that he only let them call into the state here and Youngkin ghosted him?” laughed Scarborough, a former GOP representative himself.

His co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “It was like a little box and his voice came out, like a telephone, like Charlie’s Angels.”

Scarborough branded the whole event “pretty embarrassing” and wondered how Trump could let Youngkin treat him that way.

Trump released a statement Monday insisting that despite reports and campaign commercials that say otherwise, he and Youngkin are not at odds and actually “get along very well.”

Youngkin spent the days leading up to Trump’s tele-rally distancing himself from the event and making it known he would not be a part of it.
