As Twitchy reported, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough managed to produce one of the worst takes possible on this anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks: an opinion piece in the Washington Post arguing that President Trump “is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could.” Nearly 3,000 Americans were unavailable for comment.
Not surprisingly, President Trump’s son took offense to the piece and demanded an apology on behalf of those killed in the attacks.
Joe you owe an apology to the 3000+ families who lost loved ones on this tragic day. Injecting politics today is disgraceful and only shows how irrelevant and deranged you’ve become. https://t.co/tFncxA5CQT

Good thing Scarborough’s sweetie was on hand to deflect any attacks with some really cheap shots at Donald Trump Jr., not really in keeping in spirit with the solemn anniversary. Scarborough already went full TDS; why not white knight for him and pile on?
Don.. The clock is ticking. Must be stressful. Maybe take a nap and relax. Have some chamomile tea or something. Maybe a quick trip to Russia to collect more cash for your business? https://t.co/RMJ7VQLqMN

Glad to see the hosts of “Morning Joe” have the victims and first responders first and foremost on their minds today — and yet CNN’s Chris Cillizza criticizes Trump for not tweeting about the anniversary first and exclusively.
Unhinged Mika coming to save her man! https://t.co/AUG91frd2t

Maybe tell your worse half to not be ghastly on September 11? https://t.co/3PIPOmjJNG

They all sleep in the same bed in the end. I do not trust news for that reason. Mika can not be unbiased in this opinion. https://t.co/ILVgJ3Pfw1

If I were you I’d be more worried about Joe and his mental health after that stupid, compassionless tweet this morning. https://t.co/IHc55WKi9n

Maybe if ol’ Joe had laid off the Trump-bashing for a more appropriate day, none of this would be an issue?
TAKE TWO! Joe Scarborough: 'I should have shown more care' on tweet and headline and column saying Trump more 'damaging' than the 9/11 terrorists https://t.co/DvA3VSyg8o
