‘Morning Joe’ Mocks Trump for Saying Biden Has Lost the African American Community

Morning Joe‘s Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist were incredulous on Friday following President Donald Trump’s claim that former Vice President Joe Biden had lost the ‘entire African American community’ because of recent comments on diversity.

Geist read Trump’s tweet about Biden’s remarks and Scarborough burst out laughing at the idea Biden had lost all African Americans.

“Mr. Charlottesville said he’s lost the entire — did he really say that, Willie?” Scarborough said.

“He wrote it down,” Geist said.

“I was working on our science project yesterday,” Scarborough said. “Did he really say that – the man who had David Duke praising him for his moral equivalency with Nazis and protesters – did he really say he lost the African-American community?”

“Yes, when you were putting the Mentos in the two-liter Coke bottle he did in fact write that in a tweet,” Geist joked.

“This is also the guy who a few days ago said to Jonathan Swan of the life and legacy of Civil Rights icon  John Lewis, he didn’t come to my inauguration,” Geist went on. “That was his assessment.”

“Meanwhile, The President only included part of the former Vice President’s exchange he first made the comment in a conference of Black and Hispanic journalists.”
