Joe Scarborough: ‘You See America United on the Big Issues, Finally’
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough struck a hopeful note on Wednesday. The Morning Joe host believes the United States is largely united on key social issues in the country, and he strongly implied that President Donald Trump is on the wrong side of the argument.
“I’ve got to say, in the great challenges of 2020 — and there have been so many great challenges for Americans to endure — and the great challenge is the overwhelming majority of Americans stood together, stood together on their approach to the pandemic,” Scarborough said.
“They sheltered their families in place. They respected others. They were careful. They bent that curve. You can look also at the protests following the killing of George Floyd. The same thing’s happening. The overwhelming majority of Americans are as one.”
“You know, everybody used to say we’re a 50/50 nation? We’ve been like a 75% nation this year through two or three of our toughest crises that we’ve had.”
“It’s actually — if you can pull back from the cable news chatter, if you can pull back from the talk radio noise, if you can pull back from the online histrionics, you see America united on the big issues, finally.”
Co-host Willie Geist went on to explain that the White House’s position is not the majority view in the nation, clearly juxtaposing Scarborough’s 75% against the President.
