WATCH: Joe Scarborough Goes OFF On Trump’s Racism

Joe Scarborough has made it clear he is no Donald Trump fan. After exchanging barbs via social media, Joe Scarborough and Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump have finally come to verbal blows.

Scarborough is a former Florida congressman and has previously denounced Trump for not disavowing white supremacist supporters and for his call to ban all Muslims from entry into the U.S. after the Paris terrorist attacks. But the newscaster seems as fired up and agitated as he has ever been.

“These Republicans this week who were so shocked and stunned and deeply saddened and offended by this clear act of racism had all the evidence in the world before that he had done things that — again — stopped them from endorsing him. How do you endorse, Paul Ryan, a man that supports the banning of 1.4 billion Muslims from ever entering the United States of America? You make him back down, actually.”

His irritation stems from Trumps comments about the Hispanic judge on the Trump University case. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel presides over the case over whether Trump Univeristy defrauded customers. Trump has said the Judge’s Mexican heritage makes him biased because he is building a wall around the Mexican board. Last time I checked, he wasn’t the President yet. He isn’t building anything in the near future.

Scarborough insisted that Trump has gone too far. He went on to say that he tried reasoning with Trump all this time but it has not worked to any avail.

“Instead, Al, he’s doubled down. And now it’s people that may have — what is it, one-16th Mexican blood? If you’ve got one-16th Mexican blood that maybe you can’t be a judge. One-16th Muslim blood? I mean, this is unbelievable. He is getting worse, not better.”

The newscaster made a phenomanally good point about Speaker Paul Ryan’s endorsement,

“Paul Ryan has just put the House of Representatives in play. He cannot say, ‘Well, Donald Trump’s Donald Trump, but the House is’ — no! Now he endorses Donald Trump, he endorses his racism against Muslims. Paul Ryan endorses his racism against Mexicans. Paul Ryan endorses his racism against Americans who may have, oh, I don’t know, one-16th Mexican blood in there, saying they’re disqualified to be judges.”

While Paul Ryan and Trump seem to have a marginally amicable relationship Scarborough’s comment is absolutely correct. Despite Ryan’s criticism of Trump when he endorsed him he endorsed everything about him, meaning that what Trump stands for is what the House Leader stands for. They are no longer mutually exclusive.
