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.

Sam Brinton, the Biden administration’s deputy assistant for spent fuel and waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy has been charged with a very bizarre crime.

Allegedly Brinton purposely stole a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport’s baggage claim.

Brinton is one of the federal government’s first gender non-binary officials who uses they/them pronouns. Court filings state that surveillance video showed Brinton grabbing the luggage and removing the owners ID tag.

Brinton then used the Vera Bradley suitcase on at least two occasions; one while traveling to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and the second on Oct. 9, investigators say.

Initially, Brinton denied stealing the suitcase to police officers. They later claimed it was taken by mistake, although it was still  in their possession.
