Joe Scarborough addressed the report on the police clash with protestors at Lafayette on Morning Joe Thursday. Scarborough called the Interior Department Inspector General’s conclusion “a report that doesn’t cover the entire event.”
“You talk about a lack of perspective in the panting and the over-reporting here from Trump apologists,” Scarborough said of the report. “It’s laughable on its face. You just need to read the report and read what the IG says and what the IG does not say.”
The MSNBC anchor still held on to previous reports that the police were really clearing the way for then President Trump’s photo op. “There’s a reason they were cleared with the urgency that they were cleared with,” Scarborough said. “They could have actually scheduled repairs on scaffolding at the same time, before knowing, of course, that Donald Trump, who was humiliated after news broke that he scrambled down to the bunker.”
In the end, he attempted to debunk the report entirely, mocking those that take it for fact. “If it makes you feel better seizing on to a report that doesn’t cover the entire event and completely ignoring what [Bill Barr] said, you go with that. But that’s awfully thin gruel, if that’s what you’re relying on, awfully thin gruel. Good luck with that,” Scarborough finished.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser
The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.
Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020 elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.
The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:
As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.
“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.
“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.
“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.
“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.
“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
