Scarborough Urges Schumer to Fight Trump: ‘How Do Dems Not Stand Firm?’

‘How does Chuck Schumer, how do other Democrats not stand firm after the president of the United States makes a racist declaration’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: “Donny, let’s say you’re running the Democratic Party, they decided to come to you and say, ‘We need you to run our ad campaign. We need you to run our branding campaign. We need you to be our PR guy.’ You’ve done this. You’ve done this a lot for some of the biggest corporations in the world. How do you tell the Democratic Party to buck up? Here you have an issue that they’re on the right side of. 90 percent of Americans agree with them. The President of the United States himself when he was a private citizen said, ‘You blame it on the president.’ The President of the United States this last fall, just four months ago, was bragging about wanting a government shutdown. I mean, how does Chuck Schumer, how do other Democrats not stand firm after the President of the United States makes a racist declaration and you have Republican senators lying for him and you’ve got the Director of the Homeland Security lying for the President of the United States? It is clear that the governing party in Washington, D.C. will not protect people who are not white in this immigration debate based on the President’s own words. If you’re a Democrat, if you’re a Hispanic Democrat, if you’re an Asian-American who’s a Democrat, if you’re a black Democrat, and you see your party collapse again when 90 percent of Americans are on their side, don’t you have to be asking — ‘Why am I a Democrat?’”
