In an interview on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough said President Barack Obama has “checked out” of being president and “doesn’t want to be there anymore.”
“I tend to believe based on everything I’ve heard from people who work inside the White House, and we’ve got a lot of friends there, and based on my friends who are senior Democratic senators, this president has checked out,” Scarborough said.
“This man wants to be an ex-president.”
Scarborough questioned how Obama could be so clueless as to go on vacation while riots erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, after an unarmed teenager was fatally shot by a police officer and ISIS marched across Iraq.
“We’re all big supporters of presidents going on vacation. It’s another thing to be in Martha’s Vineyard while you’ve got tanks rolling in Middle America, and all the Middle East melts down,” he said.
“This is a president that does go out of his way to show that he’s not paying attention to what anybody says. He’s going to do exactly what he wants to do, and he’s going to be stubborn about it. He is either politically tone deaf or he just doesn’t give a damn.”
When Scarborough is on, he’s on.
