Scarborough on Possible Trump Resignation or Impeachment: “He’s not going anywhere”

Scarborough on Possible Trump Resignation or Impeachment: “He’s not going anywhere”

“Until Bob Mueller says he’s going somewhere”

Does Joe Scarborough of MSNBC watch rival CNN?

The question arises because this morning, one wonders whether Joe had tuned into the CNN segment we blogged about yesterday. A Reliable Sources panel had floated a variety of scenarios, from a 25th Amendment process to a “soft coup,” by which President Trump would be forced from office.

Said Scarborough on today’s Morning Joe: “this weekend, there seemed to be a turn where a lot of people . . . have started to talk about impeachment and have started to talk about okay, maybe he’s going to resign now, and have started to talk about like that Donald Trump is going to leave town.”

But Scarborough wasn’t buying: “he’s not going anywhere, Mark [Halperin], is he?” Scarborough ended the discussion by repeating “he’s not going anywhere,” but then added this little zinger, “until Bob Mueller says he’s going somewhere.”

Note: Mark Halperin mentioned that he recently spent time in Hollywood, and that people there “all just want to know: when’s he leaving? It’s not if. They’re all just like: what’s the date when he’s out of office?” Joshed Joe: “you went to the heart of America.”

JOE SCARBOROUGH: This weekend, there seemed to be a turn where a lot of people who are negative have started to talk about impeachment and have started to talk about okay, maybe he’s going to resign now, and have started to talk about like that Donald Trump is going to leave town. And that things are different now than they’ve ever been before.

I’m just as negative on his performance. In fact, more negative. Charlottesville obviously was one of the most just unbelievably heartbreaking things for anybody that loves America that we’ve ever seen come out of the White House. He’s not going anywhere, Mark, is he? I mean, there’re no: where is this coming from?

. . .

MARK HALPERIN: I spent three days in Hollywood, talking to Hollywood people. They all just want to know when he’s leaving. It’s not if. They’re all just like: what’s the date when he’s out of office?

JOE: You went to the heart of America.

HALPERIN: I wanted to get, I put my finger on the pulse of an important segment.

JOE: So you bring that up only to say, talk about?

HALPERIN: Well, they’re kind of the extreme case, 3,000 miles away. They simply want to know when he’s leaving.

JOE: He’s not going anywhere. Until Bob Mueller says he’s going somewhere.

blind squirrel meet acorn.
POTUS is not a quitter and will probably be reelected and serve for 8 years.
it will take much longer to repair the last 16.

we need to primary the RINOs.

Hollyweird, the heart of America? Now, that’s funny!

Halperin tells us what the people in Hollywood think, as if we give a rat’s ass. That fool didn’t learn a thing last November.

Originally I was going to post something about Joe being stupid with his heart of America comment but then I watched the video.

I think they were being sarcastic with each other. In writing it looks bad but when you watch it and you see the laughter and the wink-wink stuff it kinda makes it obvious they are joking.

Joe is a butt kisser to the left but even he knows the heart of America is not Hollywood.

Now on to the other stuff…..

Joe is 100% right. Trump is not going anywhere short of being voted out of office, his term ending, removal from office or death. Trump is not going to resign.

    Agreed, the comments about Hollywood were tongue in cheek. That’s why I wrote that “Joe joshed” about Hollywood being the heart of America.

I think they overestimate their annoyance value. A man who’s successfully dealt with NYC elevator inspectors—the most obstructionist force on the planet—isn’t going to resign because of a bunch of noise.

Trump is the only Republican who can’t beat Hillary … Trump is in cahoots with the Russians … Trump is a Nazi … Trump will resign. All part of a rich fantasy life.

Joe seems to think Mueller is prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner. I think he’s a little confused. In other words, same as he always is.

President Trump is not going anywhere no matter what Mueller says. Mueller is like a child try to play with his lost marbles. Trump not Muller holds the marbles.
