Joe Scarborough on Friday lambasted President Donald Trump and high-profile Republican lawmakers for their continued silence about the arrest of a Coast Guard lieutenant who was allegedly plotting a terror attack to kill leading Democrats and journalists.
He called out several lawmakers by name on the show and asked why they hadn’t commented on Hasson’s arrest.
“Hey, Mitt Romney, you think it’s a cool idea that somebody is trying to kill Nancy Pelosi, trying to kill Chuck Schumer?” he said. “You work with Chuck Schumer. You think you should condemn that? You think you should condemn that plot? Hey, Lindsey Graham, you run the Judiciary Committee, you think it’s cool, you think you might want to check with the Justice Department and see why oddly enough they’re silent?”
Scarborough also railed against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for their “pathetic” silence over the “unbelievable uncovering of a plot to kill half of the Democratic field that’s running against Donald Trump.”
