Earlier this month, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made a big show of leaving the Republican Party because of his disdain for President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday's episode of "Morning Joe," Scarborough took his dislike of Trump a step further by claiming that he is the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
"You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.
None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of the Beatitude.”
Scarborough using Christianity to attack Trump is a low blow that is incredibly uncalled for. Trump claims to be a practicing Christian and who is Scarborough to question that? Can you imagine what would happen if Scarborough cited Islam in an attack on a Muslim president? The mainstream media would immediately slam the MSNBC host as a bigot, and his show would likely be cancelled. However, since Scarborough's sentiments were anti-Christian and anti-Trump, he has been given a free pass for this rant.
