‘Morning Joe’ Praises George W. Bush: Americans Miss Having a President with Competence

Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski praised former President George W. Bush on Monday following a video from the Republican urging Americans to unite in the face of Coronavirus. The MSNBC personalities compared Bush favorably to Donald Trump.

Showing part of Bush’s video at the top of the show, Brzezinski and Scarborough became nostalgic.

“[That’s] part of a really moving video released over the weekend by President George W. Bush calling for Americans to put aside partisanship in the face of the Coronavirus,” Brzezinski said.

“The post seemed to rile President Trump a bit. He responded on Twitter, asking why President Bush didn’t support him during the impeachment trial.”

“That was so beautiful. Beautiful,” Scarborough jumped in.

“It’s really worth watching,” Brzezinski agreed.

“Republican or Democrat alike should watch that. What a beautiful closing line, ‘We rise or fall together, and we choose to rise.’ Just beautiful,” Scarborough went on.

As Brzezinski attempted to start the show and introduce the day’s guests, Scarborough continued to praise Bush’s video.

“A lot of people said they miss having a president like that, whether it’s a Democratic president or a Republican president,” he said.

“Just miss having someone with competence,” Brzezinski suggested.

“Someone that works to unite Americans,” Scarborough said.
