Scarborough: ‘75% of Republicans Think It’s Cool that the Kremlin Tried to Rig America’s Elections’
SCARBOROUGH: "Perhaps we could look at it this way. 75 percent of Republicans, let me say that again. I will underline it, let it sink in here. Hold on a second. Let it breathe. 75 percent of Republicans in this poll say they do not care that the Kremlin tried to rig America’s presidential election. Okay. You know, I just — I kind of wonder what we fought for. What we Republicans — when we were fighting for — my entire life, you know, the Cold War, telling some Democrats that thought that Ronald Reagan was — he was a warmonger, and all the fights in the 1980s, all of the debates about getting — standing up to Gorbachev and deploying the cruise missiles into Western Germany, and all of Western Germany and all of Europe exploding. Exploding! But Reagan did that. I mean, what Ronald Reagan did at Reykjavik, refusing to give up SDI and ultimately Gorbachev having to back down. What was all of that for? So Republicans now, 75 percent of Republicans now could say, 'Oh, it’s okay if Russia tries to rig our elections.' I want to say that again. 75 percent of Republicans think it’s cool that the Kremlin tried to rig America’s elections."
