MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough penned an op-ed on 9/11 claiming President Trump is more damaging to the American dream “than any terrorist attack.”

It was crass and people were very upset he decided to politicize a tragedy in which nearly 3,000 people were killed.

The article:

Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

Reactions:

Now, Scarborough has doubled down rather than apologize.

From Daily Caller:

After near-universal criticism, Scarborough sent out a series of tweets regretting that he had not “shown more care” with the column, but he did not fully apologize for his comparison of Trump and 9/11.

Here’s where Joe called out “Trump supporters”…

Oh, Joe.

Here’s more from Scarborough’s 9/11 Trump-slamming article, via Breitbart:

In an opinion editorial published by The Washington Post Monday, MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough claimed President Donald Trump poses a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the September 11 attacks.

Scarborough’s piece, titled “Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could,” begins with the virulent Trump critic chronicling various foreign policy blunders committed by previous White Houses following the fateful terror attacks on September 11, 2001. The culmination of such “tragic lessons” — including then-President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq without sufficient evidence tying Saddam Hussein to the attacks and subsequent death of 5,000 U.S. troops at a cost of $2 trillion — Scarborough writes that America’s diminishing position on the global stage under President Trump, makes the current administration more dangerous than the 9/11 attacks themselves.

The former Republican Congress also argues “[s]ixteen years of strategic missteps” not only set the stage for then-candidate Donald Trump’s brand of populism to propel him to the highest office in the land but has also “lent a sympathetic ear to neo-Nazis and white supremacists across the globe.”

Check out Scarborough’s conclusion from the piece, per Twitchy:

The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could.

Here’s a clip of Joe attacking Trump:

Scarborough must not have known what Donald Trump did the day after the attacks. He went to Ground Zero and asked how he could help.

WATCH:

The death toll caused by diseases from toxic debris from 9/11 will soon surpass the number of deaths from the day itself.

From USA Today:

Seventeen years out from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, nearly 10,000 first responders and others who were in the World Trade Center area have been diagnosed with cancer. More than 2,000 deaths have been attributed to 9/11 illnesses.

It will get worse. By the end of 2018, many expect that more people will have died from their toxic exposure from 9/11 than were killed on that terrible Tuesday.

Continued:

-In 2017, 23 current or former members of the New York City Police Department died of 9/11-related diseases. That’s the same number of NYPD members that perished on Sept. 11, 2001.

-The FDNY lost a stunning 343 members on Sept. 11, 2001. Since then, line-of-duty deaths linked to 9/11 are approaching 180, now well over half lost on the day of the attacks. So many have died since the attacks that last year, a new tablet had to be added to the Hall of Heroes at 1 Police Plaza to accommodate all the names of the fallen.

Be better than this, Joe.
