Joe Scarborough BLASTS conservative bloggers and says they should "shut the hell up". Is he right?
Joe Scarborough raged against right-wing bloggers on Tuesday's
"Morning Joe," following their criticism of former Florida governor Jeb
Bush said Monday that Ronald Reagan and his father George H.W. Bush "would have a hard time" with today's ultra-conservative party. He was criticized by Grover Norquist, the lobbyist who enlisted most Republicans in Congress to sign a pledge against new taxes.
When asked what he made of the remarks, Scarborough railed against
critics who have called the former governor a "RINO" (Republican in name
only). He claimed that "the future of the Republican party" belongs to
conservatives like himself and Bush, not Norquist.
Then directing his message to conservative bloggers, Scarborough
said, "You know, you can go online and act like a jackass and say what
you want to say. And now everybody is calling Jeb Bush a RINO. Just shut
the hell up."
"You can stay in your mother’s basement, you can eat your Cheetos,
you can type on your dinty laptop, that’s all you got," he continued.
"But you are not the future of the Republican party, so keep screaming
at your walls downstairs, your day is done."
