Of all the things Barack Obama said that annoyed me–and the list was long–right up there was his frequent misuse of MLK’s statement that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” That statement was deeply religious in its foundation. But Obama used it to somehow suggest that the triumph of left-wing politics is inevitable.
Joe Scarborough has come up with a variation on the theme. On today’s Morning Joe, trying to explain why Trump staffers leak, Scarborough said:
“They want to be on the right side of history . . . They know this presidency is going to fall.”
Scarborough was reacting to an article by Jonathan Swan of Axios. The context was the leak of Trump staffer Kelly Sadler’s statement about John McCain, and the broader issue that leaking in this White House is reportedly more prevalent than in previous administrations.
Scarborough’s statement that White House staffers “know this presidency is going to fall” comes across as wishful thinking. Joe and the rest of the liberal media have been predicting Trump’s imminent demise since the very beginning of his presidential campaign. Don’t hold your breath, Joe.
