Joe Scarborough spoke out on his MSNBC show “Morning Joe” on Friday morning to rant against Republicans who are not accepting the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Scarborough began his rant by attacking Republicans who are offended by people disrespecting the American flag by kneeling for the anthem. He then began targeting those who still think the election was rigged, telling them to “just get the hell out.”
“If you believe that, I will say to you what many of you said in the 1960s: America, love it or leave it,” Scarborough screamed, according to Newsweek. “If you don’t have respect in American democracy anymore if you don’t respect Madisonian checks and balances if your guy doesn’t win, if that’s the new rules of engagement for this great republic, then just leave our country because you’re unworthy of it.”
“There are millions of immigrants who will come here and raise their right hand and buy into the creed and believe that we are exceptional, that believe American democracy is the greatest government on the face of the Earth,” he added. “And they will do it proudly. They will salute the flag proudly. And most importantly, they will fight for what that flag represents while you shame yourself. While you disgrace yourself. While you disgrace our country in the eyes of the world.”
“Yes, this is all on you,” Scarborough continued. “Get the facts! Live in the light! Follow the truth! And love this country! And stop this! Or leave. Or leave. If you’re going to believe a reality TV show host’s lies about the American republic, his desecration of American exceptionalism, then just get the hell out. We don’t want you here. That’s all I’ve got to say.”
This comes one day after Scarborough lashed out at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) for his opposition to proposed legislation to form a January 6 commission to investigate the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
“They don’t, Kasie, want transparency,” Scarborough told MSNBC contributor Kasie Hunt. “They don’t want truth. And certainly, they are following the ring leader of the conspiracy to commit sedition against the United States government and stop the counting of the votes that day and that, of course, Donald J. Trump. So once again, they blindly follow.”
“As somebody, Kasie, who was there, you know full well, as do all of these members who were lying to their constituents, these weren’t just tourists ambling through, taking pictures of statues in Statutory Hall or rubbing Will Rogers’ shoe for good luck. They were there looking to find people, hurt people, kill cops — almost killed quite a few — and you know, put bear spray into cop’s face who eventually died,” he added.
