Scarborough and fellow host Mika Brzezinski addressed Trump on Thursday, saying that the president was “completely to depart from reality.” They likewise recommended Trump’s cabinet members to invoke the 25 th Amendment, which allows for members of the administration to be acknowledged that the president is unfit for role, as tensions escalate between Trump and North Korea.
“We are facing a showdown with a nuclear energy and you have soul within the White House that the New York Daily News says is mentally incapable, that parties close to him say is mentally incompetent, that people close to him during the campaign told me had early stages of dementia, ” Scarborough said.
Brzezinski jumped in, adding that some people might say recommending Trump has dementia is “not OK to say, ” but included: “But at this degree, it’s reality.”
Scarborough wasn’t finished.
“When are we supposed to say this? After the first nuclear weapon departs? Is that when it’s proper to bring this up in polite society? ” Scarborough said, subsequently contributing: “Everybody around Donald Trump knows he’s not stable. Everybody.”
Scarborough, Brzezinski, and Trump have had an ongoing feud for months–including earlier this year when Trump obligated sexist and oil remarks about Brzezinski “bleeding severely from a facelift” during a rally at Mar-a-Lago, a claim that was quickly discredited.
The feud was reignited on Wednesday when Trump called out Scarborough on Twitter, trying to sow embarrassment about the deaths among a Scarborough staffer when he was a congressman in 2001, announcing it an “unsolved mystery.”
There is no mystery, as a medical examiner resolved shortly after the staffer’s death that Lori Klausutis, the staffer, “lost consciousness because of an abnormal centre lilt and descended, punching her honcho on a desk.”
