Scarborough: If It Were Any Other Candidate But Trump, the Media Would Have Called This Race Over

‘Trump is destroying everybody outside of Iowa’

SCARBOROUGH: “But Willie, the headline — we’re talking about the wild card right now.”
HALPERIN: “Yeah.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Who can get the wild card berth for the play off. The fact is, Donald Trump is so far ahead in every one of these polls — massively ahead. Let’s just state the obvious.”

SCARBOROUGH: “He’s the number one seed. Number one undefeated. Let’s just state the obvious. If it were any other candidate but Donald Trump right now the mainstream media would have called this race over.”
HALPERIN: “Yeah.”
SCARABOROUGH: “Would have said it’s a TKO the fight’s over. Trump is destroying everybody outside of Iowa.”

SCARBOROUGH: “And that Cruz-Trump battle.” [crosstalk]
