MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Scarborough declared on Monday that donors to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign are funding a “white supremacist campaign” and that the recent mass shootings are their fault.

Scarborough asserted that “those of you who are funding Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, you may want to take note that because you keep writing checks to this president, it’s on you … because you are funding this white supremacist campaign.”
“His Republican allies on the Hill, also corporations that are supporting Donald Trump’s reelection, also business people who are supporting Donald Trump’s reelection because they might like a tax cut but they don’t care about the racism. They don’t care about the white supremacy,” Scarborough said. “They’ve remained silent as well.”
Taking aim at the companies that have donated to his campaign, Scarborough wondered if their shareholders have opinions about the matter.
“And trying to pretend he’s not a white supremacist… that, of course, goes for you CEOs who allow your companies to continue to write checks to support the political rise of this white supremacist president. I wonder if your shareholders are really OK with that,” Scarborough said.
The unhinged MSNBC host also claimed that donors are funding a “hate campaign” and that the mass shootings over the weekend are on them.
“Leaders of business in America are supporting that sport of white supremacy. They are funding that man and his hate campaign that gives inspiration to white supremacists and white supremacy,” Scarborough said. “For those of you that are funding Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, you may want to take note. Because you keep writing check to this president, it’s on you. It really is. It’s all on you because you are funding this white supremacist campaign.”
Fox News reports, “Scarborough was once close to Trump and often provided him a platform on ‘Morning Joe’ in the early days of his 2016 campaign. Rolling Stone referred to Scarborough and co-host/wife Mika Brzezinski as ‘Trump’s lapdogs’ in February 2016 and many observers feel ‘Morning Joe’ helped get Trump elected.”
