But it is far, far more unfortunate that the latest person to
trumpet and repeat this vile slander is the president supposedly
leading this nation through a time of crisis.
Whatever his issues with Scarborough, President Trump’s crazed
Twitter rant on this subject was vile and unworthy of his
office. Some will undoubtedly shrug it off as Trump being Trump,
but one could hardly be blamed for reading it and doubting his
fitness to lead.
To say Trump owes Scarborough an apology is to put it mildly. But
in the end, Scarborough won’t be the one hurt by this. Against a
weak opponent, Trump somehow managed in 2016 to win despite
carrying on with sad, deluded conspiracy theories about Sen. Ted
Cruz’s father being involved in the assassination of John F.
Kennedy. Against a less reviled opponent, he may not be so lucky
