How to tell if you’re a terrorist, by the ‘birther’ who was Obama’s ambassador to Israel
On Monday, an Australian-born ‘bircher’ named Joe Scarborough called on Donald Trump to be held accountable for the deaths of more than 200 people in a terrorist attack at a Christmas market in Berlin.
Scarborough said on MSNBC that Trump was “not the president of the United States” and that he was responsible for the attacks that killed more than 100 people, many of them children.
Scarborough, who has a large following on the left, also compared Trump to former President Richard Nixon and said that the president is responsible for what happened in Germany, where a man claiming to be a Muslim, Anis Amri, killed 12 people and wounded 48 in December.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Scarborough also suggested that Trump, a former reality television star, was somehow to blame for the attack.
“I think the question that needs to be asked is, ‘What exactly is the problem here?'”
“Was he doing something that he shouldn’t have been doing?
Did he just act out?”
Scarborough added that Trump’s comments about a “Muslim ban” and a “travel ban” on some Muslim-majority countries were “irresponsible.”
“You’re not going to have a problem if he says these things,” Scarborough said of Trump.
“And if he’s a racist, you can call him that.”
“This is a man who, in my opinion, is not the president that he said he was, the commander-in-chief,” Scarborough added.
“If he had said the things that he’s said, I don’t think it would have happened.
I mean, the president’s the president, but there’s a lot of things he can say and he can do.”
Scarborough has previously expressed skepticism about the intelligence community, calling the CIA’s assessment of the attacks “irrelevant.”
Trump responded to Scarborough’s claims on Twitter by saying, “The intelligence community is doing a great job and they are the real story, not Joe Scarborough.
On Tuesday, he took to Twitter to criticize the president for saying that the “biracial” president “wasn’t a racist.”
He continued, “What he said is wrong, he should apologize to those who were killed.
That’s what the country needs.”
Scarborough’s statements, and the subsequent attacks against Trump and the intelligence agencies, have been a source of controversy and controversy, especially in light of a recent Washington Post story in which Scarborough claimed that former President Barack Obama had ordered the killing of US citizen Anis Ibrahim.
According to the story, Ibrahim had tried to blow himself up in Germany on December 18, 2017.
The Washington Post, citing a law enforcement official, also said that intelligence officials had told the public that the threat to the US was real.
But in his MSNBC interview, Scarborough went further, saying that Obama “created the Muslim ban” to target the Muslim community.
“What I saw was a president who was willing to lie and make false statements and lied and lied about everything,” Scarborough told the host.
“He didn’t do that, he did it with the intent to kill people.”
He added, “It’s not the Muslim thing.
It’s the racist thing.
This is a president that does not respect his own intelligence agencies.”
Scarborough also referred to the President as “The Muslim Ban,” saying that his policies and actions were “un-American.”
Scarborough is one of the most prominent voices on the far-left fringe of the Democratic Party, and his comments on the White House were likely a direct response to Trump’s recent comments that he would not be willing to talk about “the Muslim ban.”
Scarborough, the former host of the MSNBC Morning Joe show, is one the most well-known hosts on the network, having also co-hosted a show with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on the cable network in 2016.
In addition to the attack in Germany last month, Scarborough has repeatedly called for the impeachment of Trump in recent weeks.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Scarborough claimed Trump had “created a new law for Muslim-Americans to carry guns in America.”
He said Trump’s actions had caused a “great loss of lives and destroyed lives.”
Scarborough said that Trump is “not in charge of this country anymore,” and that “the problem with this president is that he is a racist and he’s not in charge.”
Scarborough continued, saying, “[Obama] created a new bill, which he signed into law on December 22, 2017, to allow people in the country illegally to carry weapons and to allow them to buy guns.
This law is called the Muslim Ban, and it’s a total disaster.
It is a total tragedy.
He’s not president of this nation anymore.”
Scarborough appeared to make similar claims about Obama’s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack.
In January 2016, Scarborough called Obama a “terrorist” who was responsible “for the deaths in Benghazi, Libya
