Critics of the Trump administration have been given a great deal of information to use as ammunition. Throughout the first year fo the administration, we have gone through numerous alleged scandals.
From the infamous Trump-Russia dossier that alleged that Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on a bed that former President Barack Obama used in Moscow to the recent accusations about a sexual encounter with Stormy Daniels, the president has endured various crude accusations.
While the president has endured the accusations without budging, some of the public has become tired of the constant stream of accusations.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough took a swipe at the president recently, equating the Trump administration to the Kardashian family.
“This is a reality TV show, and I’m not being glib about it. This is a reality TV show. People like watching this guy go crazy,” Scarborough argued on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
He added, “this is the Kardashians come to Washington.”
During the show, he also asked, “when does everything catch up to Trump?”
“It’s not a lie, it’s not an outrageous comment, it’s not even all of the racist attacks he makes — for some reason, none of this — it’s not a sex scandal with a porn star that he pays off,” Scarborough said.
“That would get, let’s say, nine out of 10 presidents out … OK, 999 out of 1,000. It’s not that. It’s when he gets predictable and it’s when he gets boring.”
Scarborough’s comments clearly referred to a report from The Wall Street Journal that claimed that one of Trump’s lawyers arranged to pay adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump. The payment was said to be at the six-figure level.
It should be noted that this incident was corroborated by a friend of Daniels’. Similarly, other accusations against Trump have been supported by witnesses. The leaked “Access Hollywood” tape also plays as a sort of proof of character.
Scarborough’s comments also came just a day after Trump stated he would “love” to see a government shutdown if Democrats don’t agree to his immigration demands.
Scarborough’s criticism is not out of the blue. As a consistent critic of the president, he has also been personally attacked by President Trump in the past.
On Tuesday, Scarborough criticized Trump, claiming that Trump’s “own lawyers think [he is] too stupid and too much of a liar to stand up to the heat” of a possible interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is still investigating Russia’s interference during the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
