Joe Scarborough Finds the Thinnest of Silver Linings in the Dark Cloud Hanging Over Trump's White House
Between the spectacular failure of the American Health Care Act and charges of collusion with the Russian government, the Trump White House finds itself under a dark cloud these days. The "Morning Joe" team believes they've found the silver lining, however thin.
On Monday's show, host Joe Scarborough offered fulsome praise for the resistance movement's — and the press' — check on the president's abuse of power.
"[His] first executive order, which caused protests across the globe, the courts shut it down. The president's first health care package... Congress shut it down," Scarborough noted. "Every step he takes, every move he makes, every tweet he breaks, the press is there every second hounding him."
Noting that "Hamilton and Madison's Constitution is alive and well," he concluded that Bannon's goal to destroy the state was anything but a foregone conclusion.
"We can, for now, just for now, we can take out origins of totalitarianism off the bookshelf and just put it in a drawer, and maybe we wait to open it later," Scarborough explained. "Right now, the system is working."
