(P)MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tries to come off as an unbiased reporter, but a hot mic moment on this morning’s show proves that he’s anything but as he was busted saying the unthinkable about the President.
Scarborough and his co-host/fiancée Mika Brzezinski were discussing President Trump’s visit to the Vatican when the show, “Morning Joe,” started to cut to commercial break. As the music was winding up and the cameras panning out, Scarborough didn’t realize his microphone was on when he all but accused the President of not being a Christian.
From the Free Beacon:
After spending much of the show criticizing Trump’s proposed budget, the show went to a commercial break. Co-host Mika Brzezinski said that after the break they would discuss Trump’s visit that morning with Pope Francis at the Vatican.
“Coming up, they didn’t actually see eye to eye during the presidential campaign, so what happened during Donald Trump’s meeting today with Pope Francis?” Brzezinski said. “We’ll go through that and what drove them apart in the first place, straight ahead on ‘Morning Joe.'”
As Brzezinski finished speaking, music began to play and get louder. That is when Scarborough appeared to criticize Trump and imply that he is not a Christian.
“Oh, the Pope’s Christian,” Scarborough said in an apparent reference to the differences between the Pope and Trump.
Isn’t that lovely.
Just imagine, if you will, what would have happened if a conservative commentator/reporter had said something similar about Barack Obama during his stay at the White House, the outrage that would have ensued.
Once again the double standards of the left are on full display.
