Joe Scarborough Rips Apart Gen. Michael Flynn For Promoting Racist And Fake News On Twitter

Scarborough said, ""He needs to apologize to America.," for his destructive behavior.

This morning, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tore into Gen. Flynn's constant use of Twitter to retweet and promote racist, anti-Semitic and fake news stories and said, "He needs to apologize to America."

Gen. Flynn is about to be named as Donald Trump's National Security advisor, a job that doesn't need Congressional confirmation, but after a man was arrested with a rifle, who was investigating the bogus #Pizzagate story that was promoted by Trump supporters, Scarborough had had enough.

After Haley Jackson ran a segment on the rifle wielding lunatic, Scarborough launched into his demands for Gen. Flynn.

Scarborough slowly said, "General Flynn may have served admirably under Barack Obama, some people say he was very well respected there, but he has left a trail of crap behind him with retweets, with retweeting something about Jews, retweeting something about Muslims, retweeting fake news. He needs to clean this up.”

Joe then became angry, "He needs to step up and clean this up!"

He continued, "He needs to apologize to America. He is in one of the most important positions in the White House on January the 20th, he needs to apologize for what he has done. Unrelated to this fake news story, but with the other fake news stories, the retweets about Jews, the retweets about Muslims.”

Trump stooge Mark Halperin then weighed in and said, "[Flynn] needs to explain all of this in a way that's detailed because he's not subject to Senate confirmation.- He's not responsible for his son, but he's responsible for himself."

The hell he isn't.

At his point in time, Flynn is now completely responsible for what both of his sons do.

One of Flynn's sons is his own chief of staff, while the other just sits on Twitter and amplifies conspiracy theories.

After a very sick man was arrested trying to "investigate" (with a loaded firearm) the sick, twisted and utterly fake story called #Pizzagate, his idiot son still tweeted out that it is a legitimate story.

If Flynn Sr. does not stop the harm and damage his son is doing on Twitter, God help us all.
