Joe Scarborough: Bernie Sanders Is ‘Lying’ or ‘Skating’ the Cost of Medicare for All

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough wondered on Tuesday why Senator Elizabeth Warren was doing poorly in the Democratic primaries for telling the truth about the cost of Medicare for All and other social programs, while Senator Bernie Sanders was doing so well.

Scarborough dismissed the idea that his own coverage of Warren was sexist.

“Yeah, you’re stupid. You’re really are dumb if you’re looking at — at us looking at results and you’re saying that it’s sexist that we’re saying she’s in fourth place and she’s underperforming,” Scarborough said.

“You’re not watching the show for, like, a year, which actually your mental health’s probably much better than the rest of ours so I commend you for that.”

“But I will say, and I have said it 1,000 times. The great mystery of this campaign is why Elizabeth Warren’s numbers went down when she actually told the truth how much these programs were going to cost and Bernie still keeps — I’m sorry, if not lying, he’s, like, just like skating.”

“He’s getting away with, oh, I don’t know. Hey, I don’t know. Who — hey, who knows? Might be this. It’s — it’s really, that sends a message, be as cynical as is humanly possible if you want to get elected president of the United States. It’s terrible.”
