He said he'd deport Mexicans before they raped our wives...
And ban a billion Muslims before they took white lives...
But then he won the primary, and his courage took a dive....
Amnesty Don...

Joe Scarborough promoted his new nickname for Donald Trump on Monday's Morning Joe. #AmnestyDon was born, and quickly started trending on Twitter.

Scarborough also promised a Country and Western song would be forthcoming. The above music video appeared on his Facebook page today:

After busting out of a Turkish prison while serving consecutive life sentences for some minor offenses that won't be discussed here, Willie and I, entirely by chance, ended up in Amsterdam where we met a plucky young band that caught our ear. Now, because of our good timing I can pass along the new song written and recorded all in one day about Donald Trump's battle with premature softening.

He then gives actual credit for the music to "to Nicholas Wells and Mikhail Pivovarov. Video thanks to Anthony Scutro, Miller Hawkins and Andrew Scarborough."

CNN Money wrote up the video and reminded their readers of what no one here will ever forget:

Trump used to have a cordial, even cozy relationship with Scarborough and Brzezinski -- at one point calling them "supporters." Radio host Hugh Hewitt even floated the possibility of Scarborough serving as Trump's running mate.

But the relationship turned sour at the end of February when Scarborough deemed Trump's failure to immediately disavow the support of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke "disqualifying."

Trump has repeatedly tweeted that he does not watch the show anymore -- but he does still complain about the show's content.

Gotta love Republican on Republican trolling.
