MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” namesake Joe Scarborough was slammed on Tuesday for tweeting that “Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could” in promoting a column he wrote one day before the 17th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people.
Scarborough – who was one of then-candidate Trump’s strongest supporters in the media before changing his mind and turning on him – penned a column in the Washington Post headlined, “Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could.” The MSNBC host notes that America “dominated the world stage” prior to the tragic events of Sept. 11 and points out gaffes by George W. Bush and Barack Obama before attacking Trump.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Sixteen years of strategic missteps have been followed by the maniacal moves of a man who has savaged America’s vital alliances, provided comfort to hostile foreign powers, attacked our intelligence and military communities, and lent a sympathetic ear to neo-Nazis and white supremacists across the globe,” Scarborough wrote. “For those of us still believing that Islamic extremists hate America because of the freedoms we guarantee to all people, the gravest threat Trump poses to our national security is the damage done daily to America’s image.”
Scarborough then cited a column by The New York Times’ Roger Cohen, who wrote “America is an idea. Strip freedom, human rights, democracy and the rule of law from what the United States represents to the world and America itself is gutted.”
The MSNBC talking head concluded his column by writing, “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.”

The backlash over Scarborough’s editorial has been fierce. Below are a few samples of the outrage that has erupted on Twitter:
Joe you owe an apology to the 3000+ families who lost loved ones on this tragic day. Injecting politics today is disgraceful and only shows how irrelevant and deranged you’ve become. https://t.co/tFncxA5CQT

What’s it like to know you spent years helping elevate someone that you now say is more dangerous than 9/11 terrorists, Joe? https://t.co/IMW7Xk674h

It’s a good thing to keep an open mind, but not so much that your brains fall out. Reckless hyperbole like this, by the way, is one of the reasons Trump won in 2016. https://t.co/8dXvXfwimA

Are you kidding me? I recently went to the 9/11 Memorial & saw photos of the 2977 lives lost & listened to some of the testimonies from the family members. Believe me that was heart wrenching. You on the other hand are a disgrace to write this today. You are part of the problem.

Well Joe, not really; President Trump is the only reason why I made the decision to legally move to America. Despite your irrational hatred his amazing performance is the engine that keeps the American Dream alive.

Joe you owe an apology to the families of 9/11 victims for even thinking of comparing the effects of that day on our country to your personal political opinions. It isn’t about you today.
— Jackie Turner (@kirksvillekid) September 11, 2018
This is completely classless and I don’t like Trump at all. You should be ashamed of writing something like this, especially on this date. Of all days, today, Americans should unite in memory.

Joe, you are an abusrd propagandist using 9/11 to attack President Trump. How do you live yourself knowing all you do is lie for a living? You and Mika make a great couple, you both suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome
