If you had “Joe Scarborough” for “first cable news anchor to compare Trump to 9/11 jihadis” today, you win!

While most Americans look at 9/11 with deep reflection and sorrow, others see it as an opportunity to score political points.

Enter, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.

As MRC TV’s Newsbusters pointed out, Scarborough insinuates Trump has done more damage to America than the terrorist attacks that took the lives of thousands.

Watch:

Sayeth Scarborough:

America is an idea. If you strip America of its ideas, forget about knocking down buildings in the financial district, forget about running planes into the Pentagon. Those are tragedies, but those tragedies bring us closer together. America is an idea. You gut America of that idea, that is when you do the most harm to America.

…Across the world, you have people looking at a country that is saying they want to ban people from coming to America because of their religion. You have just this week Brett Kavanaugh who wants to be on the Supreme Court refusing to answer whether people should be banned from coming to the United States because of their race, in his reading of the constitution. The accumulation of that, the retweeting of neo-Nazi video, Charlottesville, I can go on and on, what he said about the majority black countries, that is tearing more at the fabric of America than attacks on the Twin Towers did. We built from that, we became stronger because of that but this seems to me a far greater, graver threat to the idea of America.

Who also has the same comparison running in a WaPo op-ed today:
