Scarborough: Republicans Are Running Scared Instead of Speaking out, Being Courageous

‘It’s in their political interest to speak out, be courageous, show the courage of their convictions’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: "I need to go to Steve Schmidt here. Steve, the fact that so many of these Republicans are running scared and acting like vessels for Donald Trump. They don’t understand it’s in their political interest to actually speak out, to be courageous, show the courage of their own convictions and say, 'Yes, I agree with Donald Trump on X, Y, and Z. I’ll vote with him on the issues, I'll help him repeal ObamaCare, I'll help him cut taxes, I'll help him take the regulatory burden off of our small business. And Paris, it wasn’t that big of a deal.' They can say that. 'But when it comes to duty, honor and country, I will always stand with you. I will always stand with my country first. And if you want to know what America first means to me, that’s what America first means to me, country over party.' If they say that, Steve, not one of them will be hurt when they go home for asking tough questions about how Trump and Russia may have colluded together.”
