Scarborough: Trump Refusing to Accept Election Results Is ‘Beyond What a Lot of Dictators Say’

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has compared President Donald Trump to dictators and even suggested that he’s gone further than some of them. The Morning Joe host was responding to Trump’s interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace where he refused to say if he’d accept the election results.

“We haven’t talked about the fact that Donald Trump said twice, brushed away Chris Wallace’s question twice on whether he would accept the results of the election. That is what dictators say,” Scarborough said.

“That is probably the news,” said co-host Mika Brzezinski.

“It’s actually beyond what a lot of dictators say. They just steal the elections,” Scarborough went on.

“Donald Trump now saying that he’s not going to accept the results of the election. That he can’t tell us whether he will or not.”

“It was a disturbing interview. But you look at the spread of the Coronavirus and Donald Trump’s kidding himself if he thinks only a hard core group of people want their children to return to school this fall,” he said.

“I want my kids to return to school this fall, because of underlying conditions they may not be able to. There are a lot of parents with underlying conditions who may not be able to send their kids back to school if the Coronavirus, if the spread of it is not slowed. Not only is he not doing anything still, he’s been getting it wrong since January he’s been getting it wrong for over half a year and 137,000 people are dead because of it in America.”
