Brzezinski: Damage for Trump Could Be ‘Permanent’ if He Doesn’t Apologize

Scarborough: ‘Donald Trump still going around saying things that you would say if you were in the back of the pack instead of the front of the pack’

[RUSH TRANSCRIPT]

SCARBOROUGH: “So, Mika, the it's very obvious if you look at this in context that Donald Trump was asked a question by frank Lawrence, the moderator of that event. And he resorted to a low brow joke. It was Al Franken joke. He said the same thing. I respect a war hero is not somebody that gets captured. Al Franken is somebody who does not get captured. As far as I'm concerned, he set out the war. Despicable joke. And Donald joke was a despicable joke. You had Donald saying three or four times afterwards that he was a hero.”

BRZEZINSKI: “Right.”

SCARBOROUGH: “ But in this case, in this case, he needs to make -- okay this is -- they're just putting up what Al Franken said.  I don't buy the war hero thing, anybody can be captured. I thought the idea what to capture them. That was in 2000 when John McCain was running for president the first time. Obviously, the stakes much higher here. He's a man who refused to go home when the communists wanted to send him home. He refused to leave buddies behind. Even if you have a lot of differences with him. I think this is emblematic of a bigger problem of Donald Trump still going around saying things that you would say if you were in the back of the pack instead of the front of the pack. If he wants to win, if he wants to play for the long run, he's got to stop making these type of mistakes. He needs to come out with a clear apology fast. He's not doing that. “

BRZEZINSKI: “ Yeah, I think it could be permanent damage if he doesn't apologize. “
