Joe Scarborough: ‘Mike Pence Would be President by Noon’ if Senate Republicans Could Vote in Secret

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough believes Republicans secretly want Trump removed from office. Speaking to Morning Joe regular Mike Barnicle, Scarborough claimed that if GOP senators could vote in secret, they would turn against Trump in a heartbeat.

“Joe, you know, we all know, that privately, in the cloakroom they speak very disparagingly of him,” Barnicle said. “And if there was a secret ballot in the United States Senate, I think Trump would lose 90-10 maybe.”

“If there were a — Mike, if there were a secret ballot in the Senate this morning, Mike Pence would be president by noon,” Scarborough said.

“It is that clear. They want Trump out, they want Mike Pence in, they want to return to conservative principles, they want a return to conservative issues,” he said.

“They want one day where they’re not asked a question they can’t answer. One day,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said.

“They want to talk about policy instead of Donald Trump trying to loot the federal treasury to make hundreds of thousands of dollars on his Scottish resort or his Irish resort or his Miami bedbug-ridden resort. They want to get back to business. And Trump’s recklessness won’t allow them to do that, Mike,” Scarborough said.

“Do you think that there is a single United States senator, maybe there’s a single one, I don’t know, but do you think there’s a single member of the United States Senate who would want their children or grandchildren to espouse the values that Donald Trump maintains each and every day of his life?” Barnicle asked.

“Not one of them,” Scarborough said.
