In an unanticipated move on Tuesday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough defiled former President Obama for his approval of the protests against President Trump’s immigration ban.
Characterizing Obama’s statements as “rank hypocrisy,” Scarborough reminded the viewing audience of ‘Morning Joe’ that Obama supported aspects of a “de facto ban against Syrian refugees from 2011 to 2015.”
Scarborough even stated that Obama’s policies originally created the Syrian refugee problem.
Scarborough’s full argument:
“By the way, the Syrian refugee crisis began because of Barack Obama’s inaction. I think everybody will say, and history will say, [it was] the red line moment. These seven countries that were selected were selected by Barack Obama.
“I’m not toggling both sides, I’m not playing the other side. This is just rank hypocrisy on Barack Obama’s part for being such a huge part in the Syrian refugee crisis. Shutting Syrians out for years and now acting shocked and stunned and deeply saddened that Donald Trump would basically, in effect, do the same thing. Using again, my friends, let me repeat it, let’s put it back up again, and we ought to put Obama’s countries [up]…”
Scarborough then ends with the following point, in regards to Obama choosing to comment on Trump’s actions:
“My point is not that Donald Trump implemented this correctly, or that it should even be implemented. My point is some people should probably keep their mouth shut and not be self-righteous when their policies led us to this stage.”
