Scarborough: Marco Rubio 'Flat Out Lied' To The American People

For one brief moment, Joe Scarborough told the truth. Pot, meet kettle.

Every once in a while, Scarborough likes to throw a changeup by actually responding to an outrageous Republican lie. But rest assured, if Rubio becomes the nominee, the lie will disappear down the Republican memory hole and Rubio will quickly become a prince among men. Your librul media, folks! Via Mediaite:

“You’re a Florida guy, I’m a Florida guy,” Scarborough said to Chuck Todd. “I think it was [CNBC host] Becky Quick who went down the list of proven things about Marco’s foreclosures and all of Marco’s economic problems. Talking about lying; Marco said ‘I’m not going to answer those lies, they’ve all been discredited.'”

“I think I would have stopped him there,” co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed.

“Marco just flat-out lied to the American people, there,” he continued. “And I was stunned that the moderators didn’t stop there and go, ‘Wait a second, these are court records. What are you talking about?’”

Todd wouldn’t go so far, saying instead that Rubio “deflected” the question. “Did he lie or not?” Scarborough pressed.

“Well, I don’t know what your definition of lying is,” Todd said. “What she said was factually correct. He tried to say ‘discredited.’ That is wrong obviously.”

“Was Becky telling the truth about his foreclosures and all of his economic problems? Or was Marco Rubio telling the truth?” Scarborough pressed.

“No, everything she said was factually correct,” Todd said.

“Okay, so Becky was telling the truth, Marco was lying,” Scarborough concluded. “And yet everybody’s going, ‘Oh, Marco was great.’ No, Marco lied about his financials.”
