Honesty is the Best Policy

We just had the most transparency from Morning Joe Scaroborough we could ever hope for.

On Tuesday, the 17th anniversary of 9/11, he wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post:

Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could

What evidence does he cite?

Annual deficits.

The Iraq invasion.

Strategic missteps.

Wait a minute.

Who contributed more to annual deficits than any presidents before him?

Who ignored the red line in Syria?

Whose strategic missteps caused us to diminish as an influence for good in the world?

Oh, yeah. President Obama.

Then Joe tries to rewrite history.

Sixteen years of strategic missteps have been followed by the maniacal moves of a man who has savaged America’s vital alliances, provided comfort to hostile foreign powers, attacked our intelligence and military communities, and lent a sympathetic ear to neo-Nazis and white supremacists across the globe.

“Maniacal moves.” That’s a dog whistle for, “I don’t like what he did.”

He’s “savaged America’s vital alliances” by – what? – being tough on China with trade?

He “attacked our intelligence and military communities.”

Joe is earnest here. He’s upset because Trump is attacking the Deep State.

The military? Joe’s attempt to conflate these two institutions is a fantasy. The military, from the top brass on down, couldn’t be happier with their commander-in-chief.

Yet, all Joe can do is channel his hatred toward President Trump.

Why?

His title gave it away, of course.

Trump is harming his dream of America, a globalist dream in which Socialism, the great equalizer, decimates the United States, and we all live as well as the average Venezuelan.

Jim Carrey said as much earlier in the week: “We have to say yes to socialism.”

Right, Jim. Because saying yes to capitalism for most of your life has resulted in such an economic and professional catastrophe for you.

Oh, wait a minute.

Thank you for your honesty, Fellas. Keep it coming!
