He better be ready for what comes next.
According to Breitbart News, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough attacked President Donald Trump stating “Americans are dying every day” because of his mental health.
“Mr. President, I ask that you get checked out. I ask that you take a rest. I ask that you take care of yourself. Maybe let Mike Pence run things for the next week. You’re not well,” Scarborough advised. “Let Mike Pence work with Dr. Fauci, work with Dr. Birx. It’d be best for you politically. It would be best for the country medically. It’d be best for the Republican Party politically. Talk about social distancing, we’re reading stories now of Republicans who are politically distancing from you. You were right when you said we are a country at war. But we’re losing that war.”
He continued, “You assured us in January, it was nothing to worry about. You assured us in February, there was nothing to worry about. You assured Republican senators in March when they were panicked. You said, ‘Just stay calm. It’ll go away.’ You assured African-American leaders that it would go away, just like magic. You assured Americans time and again in April, when things warmed up, it would just go away.”
He added, “You assured us in April it would just go away and not come back in the fall — even when medical professionals, doctors and historians, actually, reminded us that the 1918 pandemic did come back. And it was even worse in the fall. Mr. President, you’re getting worse every day. You need to take a rest. You need to let Mike Pence actually run things for the next couple of weeks, and come back when you’re feeling a little better and when you can really actually focus on your job. Because you just can’t do that right now. And Americans are dying every day because of it.” You can watch a clip of Scarborough’s remarks here.
