Joe Scarborough's Mea Culpa on Tasteless Trump-9/11 Comparison

Joe Scarborough's Mea Culpa on Tasteless Trump-9/11 Comparison

Tuesday, 11 September 2018 03:01 PM

Joe Scarborough on Tuesday says he should have "shown more care" in asking whether President Donald Trump has had a more detrimental effect on the nation than the 9/11 terror attacks.

On Monday night, the host of MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" tweeted a link promoting a Washington Post column he wrote for the 17th anniversary of the attacks, headlined: "Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could," Scarborough tweeted.

It sparked a thunderstorm of criticism, including a protest from Donald Trump Jr.

Scarborough returned to Twitter to admit he could have been more eloquent.

"Many have been offended by a tweet I sent out earlier re: my @washingtonpost article. Even if they did not read the article, I should have shown more care on the tweet’s wording and the column’s conclusion," he tweeted.

"The column was focused on 17 years of strategic missteps. The last paragraph became the sole focus of Trump supporters. On every other day of the year, I do not shy away from negative feedback from the right, the left or from Trump supporters.

"On September 11th, I’ll read the column again and think about whether I could have said the same thing in a way less offensive to Trump supporters."
