Joe Scarborough Just Doesn't Know What To Do About Bernie Sanders

He cannot understand how a guy like Sanders could get a turnout like the one he got last weekend.

Ooooh, Bernie Sanders' Big Giant Rally last weekend that brought in 25,000+ people (which, by the way, is a record) has Joe Scarborough's panties in a bunch.

This is the formula for any mention of the 2016 Democratic field on Morning Joe. If it's Clinton, trash her. If it's Sanders, pretend you LOVE HIM HARD while insulting the hell out of him. Also, be sure to compare Sanders' populist message to Trump's faux populism.

And by all means, please ignore the fact that were it not for the slobbery kisses of the likes of Joe Scarborough, Trump would be yesterday's news.

So here's the deep, insightful questioning commentary from Morning Joke. He wonders how a guy who "looks like he's off The Muppets" (LOL) is drawing 25,000 people to a rally? I mean, who loves a Muppet enough to be sardined into a room with a bunch of happy liberals who also love a Muppet?

This is the guy MSNBC wants to prop up by extending his show an extra hour to capitalize on West Coast viewer captures. As if three hours isn't bad enough.

Scarborough aside, the Sanders rally was quite a do. That's a huge (YUGE) crowd of real people gathering together to cheer on their candidate. Kudos.
