'Pathetic' Republicans Are Roasted on Seth Meyers for Sucking up to Trump
Trump's presidency has been "far worse" than "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ever anticipated.
“It’s almost at the point of no return,” Brzezinski told Seth Meyers late Tuesday, when the two appeared on his show.
Scarborough added that he and Brzezinski have both known Trump for "10, 11, 12 years."
"We never expected it to be quite this bad," he told Meyers.
The "Late Night" host pointed out that Trump's record-low approval rating may cause more Republicans to bail on the president.
"Do you think we'll see more people like [John McCain and Lindsey Graham] if his approval rating stays at 36% as it is now...does that give the Republicans who maybe haven't been prone to standing up to him a little bit more courage?" Meyers asked his guests.
“Honestly, the fact that Republicans are still sucking up to him at this point is kind of pathetic,” Brzezinski said. “The whole thing has turned into lies and misinformation, calling the news 'fake news,' undermining the judiciary, undermining every branch of government. I don’t care if you’re a Republican or Democrat, there’s right and there’s wrong, and this guy’s wrong.”
The crowd roared. Scarborough also slammed chief strategist Steve Bannon's influence and the GOP's health plan fiasco, after Trump had repeatedly called to repeal and replace Obamacare on day one.
