Scarborough Says Trump’s Immigration Meeting Proved Wolff’s Book: ‘Grandpa Kept Wandering’

Joe Scarborough mocked President Donald Trump’s open-press immigration meeting with bipartisan lawmakers, arguing it only served to reinforce author Michael Wolff’s conclusion that the president has lost it. “The reason he did this was obvious,” Scarborough said of the meeting on Morning Joe. “He wanted to disprove Michael Wolff’s book. He wanted to prove that he was in complete control of his mental facilities and actually what he did was show that he wasn’t.” Trump made a number of conflicting comments in the immigration meeting that infuriated hardline anti-immigration advocates: he apparently ceded to Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein’s calls for a “clean” bill to fix DACA, and waffled on details of the border wall. And Scarborough brutally mocked Trump for the back and forth: “He couldn’t keep up with where he was,” Scarborough claimed. “He would amble over and say what Democrats wanted to hear, ‘yes, I’m with we should do this out of love.’ And then Kevin McCarthy would figuratively grab him by the shoulder and say ‘grandpa, come over here, pawpaw, sit down here, don’t hurt yourself, this is what you really believe.'” “Then pawpaw would say, ‘okay this is what I really believe.’ But grandpa kept kind of wandering back and forth and he had to be reminded time and time again what he believed.” “So the very thing he was trying to prove, he disproves, Scarborough concluded. “He has no idea about the issues and has no positions on the issues that actually drive his base the most.” Watch above, via MSNBC.
