Joe Scarborough has provided a stunning example of the contempt that he, and the liberal media at large, have for the millions of Americans who support President Trump.
On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said people attending Trump rallies have a responsibility "to not be so stupid that they should be kept away from blenders." Scarborough went on to warn Trump supporters not to be "dumb" and "ignorant," saying they must educate themselves in order to see that Trump is lying to them.
Scarborough twice singled out Google as the kind of place Trump supporters should go to "educate" themselves. Google, right. Whose search results can blacklist and blocklist conservative sites like NewsBusters. Whose "Google News" is "biased wildly toward liberal outlets." Whose employees favor Democrats overwhelmingly with their political donations.
Here's the transcript.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: I’ll tell you what, it’s actually, it's the responsibility to people that show up at those rallies to not be stupid, to not be so stupid that they should be kept away from blenders.
All they have to do is spend three seconds actually watching the news, all they have to do is spend three seconds on Google, all they have to do is spend three seconds talking to somebody that is not completely brainwashed to see that this is a horrible deal for the Kurds. The Kurds are going to be wiped out, and Donald Trump said it was a great deal for Turkey because now Turkey doesn’t have to kill millions of people. Again, it is so absolutely flummoxing what the president said this week.
And the responsibility, you know, sure, it’s with the president, but at this point it’s with the people cheering and waving things, Trump flags in the audience. They have a responsibility to not be dumb. And they have a responsibility to be informed. They have a responsibility not to be ignorant.
And all I’m asking is that they just spend two or three minutes actually looking at the news and educating themselves. Because if you were at that rally last night, everything — just about everything the president told you about the Kurds, about Turkey, about the Middle East was a lie. And we’re all going to pay for it, you’re going to pay for it, we’re going to pay for it, our children are going to pay for it, our country’s going to pay for it with the rise of ISIS. This is coming again. The Pentagon warned the president a month ago that ISIS was going to rise again if we didn’t hold a tough line. The president has quivered and collapsed again. He’s been a collaborator with Vladimir Putin. He’s been a collaborator with Erdogan. He’s been a collaborator with all of our enemies. He’s strengthened Iran, he’s weakened our closest allies. You need to read some news. Whoever you trust, read your local newspaper. Go on Google. Don’t go to those stupid sites where people make things up. Read the news because we’re all going to pay for this for years to come.
