Morning Joe Hammers Trump’s Mob Boss Temper Tantrum


Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough had some points to make on Monday about President Donald Trump’s Sunday Twitter tantrum.

Trump spent Sunday morning rage tweeting about the Russia investigation and the case against his former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen. The mob boss-like tweet referred to Cohen as a “rat” and accused the FBI of illegally breaking into Cohen’s offices.

Former FBI Director James Comey and former federal prosecutors were quick to call out Trump’s mobster language and reminded everyone that the FBI had a warrant allowing them to search the offices legally.

Scarborough made the same observation about calling someone a “rat” on Monday.

First, he praised National Review writer and Fox News guest Andrew McCarthy, who has frequently attacked the Russia investigation, for his Twitter response to Trump’s tweet, which can be seen above.

This is a red flag for Trump as McCarthy is usually one of his defenders.

“He is also behaving like a mobster, Scarborough continued. “This is what mob bosses say, and by the way, when you use the word ‘rat,’ that is somebody who is telling the truth to the feds.”

But Scarborough also pointed out that Trump literally suggested that someone break into the DNC.

“We had a Republican president suggest without irony that somebody should break into DNC headquarters,” he said. “We’ll just let that hang out there. The president is unhinged.”

Scarborough makes a good observation. Not only did the Russians hack into the DNC at Trump’s own suggestion during the 2016 campaign, but former President Richard Nixon also resigned in disgrace after getting busted for his involvement in the break-in at DNC headquarters at the Watergate Hotel in 1972.

Trump’s suggestion that someone break into the DNC again is disturbing.
