MSNBC is home to Trump-hating hosts.
The left-wing cable channel spews anti-Trump fake news 24 hours a day.
But this MSNBC host said something about Trump on 9/11 that will make you sick to your stomach.
MNSBC’s Joe Scarborough Turns On Trump
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough used to be friends with Donald Trump.
During the GOP primaries, Scarborough’s “Morning Joe” gave Trump a fair shake in interviews.
That is no longer the case.
Scarborough is now a crazy Trump hater.
The former Republican Congressman moved left over the years.
He now supports gun control and other liberal causes.
Scarborough completed his turn with daily ranting about how awful Donald Trump is.
Scarborough’s 9/11 Outrages Americans
Scarborough wrote a column for the Washington Post that the paper ran on September 11.
It caused an uproar.
The MSNBC host claimed Trump caused more damage to the American dream than Osama bin Laden.
He wrote, “Osama bin Laden was killed by SEAL Team 6 before he accomplished that goal. Other tyrants who tried to do the same were consigned to the ash heap of history. The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could.”
Americans could not believe it.
A MSNBC host claimed the President of the United States was a greater threat than terrorists who murdered 3,000 Americans.
Outrage Pours In
Critics blasted Scarborough for this column.
But they also took aim at the Post for publishing his column.

Joe Scarborough is what's wrong with the media in this country. NBC/MSNBC gives him a show, and the Washington Post gives him a forum, to promote his insane rants. https://t.co/56gA6LwJol

Donald Trump Jr., blasted Scarborough as well.
Joe you owe an apology to the 3000+ families who lost loved ones on this tragic day. Injecting politics today is disgraceful and only shows how irrelevant and deranged you’ve become. https://t.co/tFncxA5CQT

Scarborough Tries To Walk Back his Comments
Scarborough saw he was in trouble.
He quickly tried to walk back his comments.
Jeryl, you’re a great example for all of us—especially me today. Many have been offended by a tweet I sent out earlier re: my @washingtonpost article. Even if they did not read the article, I should have shown more care on the tweet’s wording and the column’s conclusion. https://t.co/A7zJR38JiC

But Scarborough did not tell the truth.
It was not just Trump supporters who found his column offensive.
Donald Trump did not murder 3,000 innocent Americans.
Scarborough is moving left and disagrees with Trump’s policies.
That is normal.
But what is not normal is saying Trump is more of a threat to the American dream than Bin Laden.
And Scarborough wrote this on the 17th anniversary of 9/11.
It was shameful.
Critics also argued The Post should have rejected the piece.
Instead, they proved their standard for an op-ed is how much the author hates Trump.
The media’s double standard also stood out.
If Scarborough wrote a column like this about Barack Obama, there would have been calls for his job.
Scarborough faced mild media criticism.
CNN’s media reporters ignored the story.
Had Sean Hannity said Obama was a greater danger to America than terrorists, CNN would have tried to get him fired.
The sad fact is hating Trump dominates the left’s life.
They sink so low as to use 9/11 as a political club against Trump.
We will keep you up to date on any new details in this ongoing story.
