Just sick: MSNBC uses suffering of shooting victims to bash Trump

DCNFNick Givas, DCNF

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough spoke for the victims of the Florida school shooting and said Monday they are “deeply offended” by President Donald Trump’s attempt to dodge the Russia investigation.

Scarborough was interviewing Random House Executive Editor Jon Meacham when he mentioned how angry the school children were with the president for using the tragedy to divert away from his own scandal.

“There were a lot of children, Jon, in that school who lost friends in the shooting. Who this weekend talked about just how deeply offended they were that the president would try to escape responsibility in an FBI investigation by blaming that shooting,” Scarborough said on “Morning Joe.”


“A massacre of their friends with a gun that has been used in every other massacre and that the president continues to embrace,” he continued.

Mecham said Trump is self-serving and believes his response should have mimicked past presidents like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

“You think of Bill Clinton at Oklahoma city at one of the lowest points of his presidency. He’s just asserted the president is relevant, sort of desperately. And then he goes to Oklahoma city. he talks about healing,” Mecham said. “You think about President Obama breaking into the ancient hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ in Charleston. That’s the tradition in which we should expect presidents to work in moments like this. Not defensive, self-serving, incorrect defenses of what’s probably indefensible.”
