Another Bizarre Scarborough Blooper About Zimmerman Trial: Joe Doesn't Know Who Fired Shot
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 06/25/2013 5:50:04 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Another day, another bizarre blooper by Joe Scarborough regarding the trial of George Zimmerman.

We reported yesterday that Scarborough—ignoring the rule against double jeopardy—claimed that the absence of African-Americans on the jury would subject a verdict to immediate appeal. Today, the Morning Joe host curiously claimed that the prosecution had a big hill to climb because "you don't know who fired the shot." What? Zimmerman has admitted from the beginning that he shot Trayvon Martin, albeit in self-defense. When Al Sharpton [who has actually been more circumspect in his remarks about the trial than Scarborough] pointed this out, Scarborough quickly changed the subject.

Amazing he gets paid to discuss subjects about which he is totally ignorant. But he’s not alone.

Seems like we have an administration with the same qualifications.

Obviously some are confusing Scarborough with a person with a brain. Not the right guy.

"What's shaking with Scarborough?"

Everyone knows that it takes only a few days in the Washington DC/New York City cocoon to turn your brain to mush. (Example: Marco Rubio). On MSNBC, it takes only a few seconds. Without delving into the obvious crude side of this, I'll just say that "Shakin' Joe" has simply lost all control of his brain.

Pass the word, Joe Scarborough has early onset dementia.

Marl, since you watch the show regularly, how many African-Americans appear on it?

Marco’s brain was mush to begin with. He just had others to write speeches to make him sound conservative so he could get elected. Then when the time came we found out he was a 0bama plant.

Watch Mika reflexively shake her head “no” when Joe says the prosecution has a tough hill to climb.

Or uppers, something.

I flipped on my Sirius radio this morning while getting ready for the gym and caught ten minutes of Morning Blo. The guy sounded manic, scattered, irrational.

More so than usual, I mean.

Well, $harpton got this one right, but in the past, he has had some factual difficulties in this case...

Rev. Al, Gene Robinson and Jonathan Capehart are regular panelists. Valerie Jarrett makes frequent guest appearances.

From Joe's vantage point, it's hard enough just being Joe. Now he's expected to keep extraneous facts straight??
