Scarborough on Trump Supporters: ‘Personality Cult’ Is ‘What You See at the Beginning’ of Autocracy

‘This is a bizarre, a group of extraordinarily weak-minded people, weak, pathetic, sad people, who will blindly follow Donald Trump’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: “And then you had somebody in a focus group, Rick, who said, 'Jesus Christ could come down from the cross and tell me that Donald Trump was involved with Russia and I would tell him, hold on a second, I need to ask the President if that’s true.' This is a bizarre, a group of extraordinarily weak-minded people, weak, pathetic, sad people, who will blindly follow Donald Trump over their God in the case of that. This sort of — again, this personality cult, this is what you see at the beginning of the rise of any autocracy. This will not happen here, but it’s not for the lack of a lot of really stupid people who actually will choose Trump over their God, trump over their party, Trump over their ideology, Trump over their moral patterns, Trump over everything that their mothers and fathers taught them growing up. No, I’m not talking about all Trump supporters, but there is a group of Trump supporters that agree like this guy, 'I don’t care what Jesus says; I just care what Donald Trump says.'”
