Careful, Joe: put enough snowflakes together and you get an . . . avalanche.
Offended by Maxine Waters’ call for Trump haters to “harass” members of his administration? Joe Scarborough says you’re a “snowflake.”
Scarborough used that s-word four times in little more than a minute during Morning Joe‘s opening segment today:
“Yesterday we saw supporters of Donald Trump melt like precious snowflakes in the Arizona sun because Maxine Waters said some things . . . I do wonder how relatives of mine, and friends of mine, will melt like the biggest, most precious snowflake . . . My friends and relatives, who are such delicate, precious snowflakes . . . Do you think those snowflakes had earmuffs on?”
Note: Morning Joe regular Jon Meacham has gone from serving as a source of relative sanity to joining the pack baying for Trump’s political blood. This morning, he dismissed criticism of Waters’ inflammatory language, saying “you reap what you sow.”
Note segundo: Scarborough twice mocked his “friends and relatives” as snowflakes. You don’t get to choose your relatives, but you have to wonder: how long Scarborough will retain friends whom he so cavalierly insults?
