Joe Scarborough Mockingly Praises Trump Campaign for ‘Freaking Out’ about Biden Six Months Ago

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough offered mock praise of President Donald Trump’s campaign for freaking out about former Vice President Joe Biden months ago when his campaign had been written off by many. The Morning Joe host said Trump’s reaction then proved how dangerous Biden was to his re-election chances.

“Let’s just stop for a second and realize how good Donald Trump’s political operation is,” Scarborough said.

“Because they saw something in the numbers six months ago about Joe Biden in states like Michigan that freaked them out.”

“In fact, they were so freaked out by what they saw if Joe Biden won the Democratic primary that the president actually risked getting impeached to stop Joe Biden in his tracks,” Scarborough said.

“In fact, he was so freaked out by Joe Biden running against him in the general election campaign, that he did get himself impeached.”

Scarborough said that the Trump campaign was still ‘freaking out’ about a Biden candidacy.

“They’re actually attacking Joe Biden for occasionally slurring his words and having his speech jumbled up. You talk about the pot calling the kettle black. But they’re desperate,” he said.

“Donald Trump’s campaign knew something that the rest of us didn’t know six months ago, and that is that Joe Biden is kryptonite to Donald Trump.”
