Joe Scarborough: Trump’s ‘Super Spreader’ Events ‘Will Kill Senior Citizens’
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough believes President Donald Trump’s rallies are endangering people’s lives. The Morning Joe host warned that amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the President’s decision to hold large events risked spreading the virus.
Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski highlighted how some prominent Republicans have come out in favor of wearing masks and other public health measures, citing Florida Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio. Their state has been badly affected.
“By the way, Marco Rubio and Rick Scott and some other Republicans who can no longer look at these super spreader events that Donald Trump is forcing people to put in place in Arizona, in Tulsa, in any area that kills.”
“It will kill senior citizens. Arizona’s senior citizens, their lives just got a lot more complicated after the super spreader event that Donald Trump pushed in Arizona, so he could do what?”
“So he could spread conspiracy theories about American democracy,” Scarborough said. “And so he could say racist ramblings meant to inspire his 35%.”
“And, of course, all of this comes, all of this comes with a president of the United States and his allies on Facebook, his allies on talk radio, his allies on cable news, continuing to downplay the dangerousness of this virus, like Larry Kudlow. And, of course, Kellyanne Conway, back in March saying that the virus was contained. And then 120,000 Americans died.”
