Scarborough Calls Out Clinton’s Comments in India About Trump Voters

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday called out Hillary Clinton's recent comments in which she claimed the decision by many to vote for Donald Trump in 2016 was driven by racism and sexism.

Clinton made comments in India over the weekend where she characterized voters in states she lost in 2016 as racists and misogynists.

"If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won. I win the coasts, I win Illinois, I win Minnesota, places like that," Clinton said.

"What the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product," Clinton said. "So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards."

"You know, ‘you didn’t like black people getting rights. You don’t like women, you know, getting jobs. You don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are. Whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it,'" Clinton said, channeling her perception of Trump.

The "Morning Joe" host responded to Clinton's remarks and to contributor Eddie Glaude, who argued Clinton "wasn't the best messenger" but "some form of racial resentment, some form of social anxiety, drove the Trump voter."

Scarborough blasted Clinton for thinking that voters in states such as Wisconsin were against women and racial minorities.

"The only thing I'll say though … so much of it has to do with who Donald Trump was running against," Scarborough said.

"It's kind of hard to suggest that people in Wisconsin are retrograde and looking backwards and don't want good things for women and blacks and Hispanics and others other than white males when Hillary Clinton didn't even campaign in Wisconsin," Scarborough said. "Are there no mirrors in the Clinton household?"

Scarborough also noted that in some of those states like Wisconsin, which went to Trump and Clinton lost in 2016, Barack Obama won in both 2008 and 2012.

Gowdy Tells Trump and His Lawyers to Leave Mueller Alone: If You’re Innocent, ‘Act Like It’

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) of the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday that President Donald Trump and his lawyers would be unwise to interfere with Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation. Gowdy appeared on "Fox News Sunday" and said Trump and his lawyers should act more like the president is innocent of the charge of colluding with the Russians in the 2016 election. Host Chris Wallace asked Gowdy whether he supported Trump’s lawyer John Dowd’s statement that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should end Mueller’s investigation. "I don't [support Dowd’s statement], and I think the president's attorney, frankly, does him a disservice when he says that and when he frames the investigation that way," Gowdy said. Gowdy said Mueller’s jurisdiction to investigate Russian involvement in the election is vital, and he said Dowd was wrong to suggest Mueller is only looking for evidence against Trump. "To suggest that Mueller should shut down and all that he is looking at his collusion—if you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it," Gowdy said. Wallace asked whether Trump may begin to take more aggressive actions to stop Mueller’s investigation, and Gowdy cautioned against it. "I hope that's not what's happening," Gowdy said. "This is the same Bob Mueller that just indicted a dozen Russians for interfering with our election in 2016. My advice to the president is the same thing I just told his lawyer: Give Bob Mueller the time, the independence, and the resources to do the job." Gowdy said the House is not able to do very much about Trump’s management of the Justice Department because the Senate is the one with advice and consent. He said Trump trying to get rid of Mueller would make 2018 a difficult time for the administration to get anything done. "I think the president is going to have a really difficult time nominating and having approved another attorney general," Gowdy said. "It's going to be a very, very long, bad 2018. It's going to be distracting from other things that he wants to do and was elected to do. Let it play out its course—if you've done nothing wrong, you should want the investigation to be as fulsome and thorough as possible."
