Scarborough: Woman Testifying In Support Of Assault Rifles Looked Like 'Jackass'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/31/2013 4:25:12 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

On today's Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough said that a Senior Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum testifying in favor of assault rifles looked "like a jackass."

Gayle Trotter, who holds undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Virginia and is the co-founder of a D.C. law firm, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday. She argued that having an assault rifle could help a woman defend herself and her children against intruders. Immediately after playing a clip of her testimony, Scarborough said: "if you go out and try to defend assault weapons, then you end up looking like a jackass." Mika Brezezinski agreed: "I'm sorry, but that's true."

Joe should know. He’s looked like a jackass for the past ten years.

Apologies to all for the double pings: it’s not something I’m doing. I’ve alerted the moderators. They’ve let me know there’s some kind of glitch that’s being worked on.

Joe Scarborough. I have a question. When you killed your intern, did YOU use an assault rifle?

Joe was conservative for about two terms and as he got used to DC and the "fame and glory" he slipped into rino-hood and then into liberal denial.

He now uses his ex-pubbie creds to pose as a msnbc style conservative.

My advice to joe is "ESAD you pussy-boi".

Scarborough should be well familiar with what a jackass looks like. So this constitutes “expert opinion.”

Why is a woman who is NOT an expert on assault weapons testifying in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of them? That would be like having an electrician testify about telemetry circuitry on a Patriot missile. Just because you become an attorney it doesn’t make one an expert on everything (but it sure seems many of them think that way)

She may not be an expert, but I will say there are many people out there that are not gun owners that are standing up for the RKBA. Those people are important too.

MSNBC and Joe Scarborough are rabid anti-gunners. To them, ANYONE defending gun rights and the 2nd amendment is a jackass.

That doesn't make them right, but that's their mentality right there.

Why does anyone take what they say as worthy of anything more than a bucket of puss? It's fine to know what your enemy is saying, but come on, who thought these two and their network would EVER say anything in favor of gun ownership?

I saw her on MSNBC LawrenceOD last night and he treated her like mud on his shoe, and she looked and sounded great.

She threw back at him : "Larry, name calling wont get us anywhere". Imagine a Republican treating say Sandra Fluke like that on camera and what these hypocrites would say.

A message for Joe :"Rather than go on your show every day and look at lib Mika and ask her Retorically :" Mika, what has happened to my party?' " as you do, just join the Dem party where you will be happy and take Powell and Steele with you.

Im offended! Somehow the name of the show Morning joe which has comparisons of joe (the dolt) in the morning and the first cup of coffee in the morning degrades the most important first cup in the morning to a cup of slury left behind at a tobacco chewing seminar.

“Jackass”, eh? Why are liberals so vicious and just plain mean and nasty like this? I understand disagreeing with someone’s position on an issue, but why do liberals have to personally degrade and insult those who they disagree with? Why are liberals so haughty and egotistical that they look down on anyone who utters so much as a whisper if disagreement with their beliefs? As much as the libs say conservatives are mean and nasty, I have to say that the most insulting and vicious people I have ever met are liberals.

Gayle Trotter is a hero for stading up to the certain ridicule for her position. Who will vilify Scarborough for his lack of civility toward this woman. Compare and contrast Trotter with Sandra Fluke. Trotter certainly did not want the taxpayers to buy her weapon... Can’t make this stuff up!

I’ve had it with that whore Scarborough.

Has he gotten worse over time or did he start out his show as a fifth columnist “Republican”? I can’t believe he was once a conservative Congressman.
