Scarborough: To Say that Donald Trump Is a Straight Talker Is Laughable
SCARBOROUGH: “I think people have told us through two elections, and especially this last election, I think there’s a political sickness in this country. There are antidemocratic, post-democratic instincts that, as Anne Applebaum has written about, we have seen in Hungary and Poland and sadly we seen it in this country as well. I think it’s our responsibility to figure out why that happened. I don't really care what people tell me because I’ve talked to my friends and my family members, they don’t have a good answer as to why they’re supporting Donald Trump. They really don’t. They just sort of mumble around and say, 'Oh, you know, I don’t like him. I hate him. He’s a horrible human being, but, you know, he’s our guy.' Really, again, nobody has really given a compelling, cogent reason that’s based on verifiable facts as to why — I mean, to say that Donald Trump is a straight talker is laughable."
