Joe Scarborough: Seniors ‘Have Abandoned Donald Trump’ for Joe Biden over Coronavirus

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough sounded an alarm for President Donald Trump on Wednesday about a key part of his voter base. The Morning Joe host explained that senior citizens were abandoning the President because of his mishandling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“But even with Washington not working Americans are slowly starting to catch up,” Scarborough said.

“But the President’s lies are slowly starting to catch up to him,” he said. “You can lie about Robert Mueller and can he lie about the FBI, he can call the FBI thugs, he can lie about Ukraine, you can lie about that and people don’t care. Most people — it’s like, come on, that’s Washington stuff, I don’t want to hear about it. That’s — that’s the Democrats, Benghazi.”

“I’m worried about getting my kids to college, I’m worried about keeping my job, I’m worried about all this other stuff. But when the President’s lying about something that is so central to Americans’ life, health, specifically their health, the life and the death of their parents or their grandparents or their children, and they focus. And there has been a tremendous cost.”

“And you look at the CNN poll that came out yesterday, and only 36% of Americans trust information that the President gives them about the Coronavirus – 62% do not trust the information the President of the United States is giving about the most challenging crisis Americans have faced since World War II.”

“And you see that in public and private polling. You look at Wisconsin, a poll that came out yesterday. Seniors by an overwhelming margin have abandoned Donald Trump and are now supporting Joe Biden. Why? Because Donald Trump’s just not telling them the truth about this healthcare pandemic.”
