Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) did his best to make himself look like a fool and a racist on national TV. He was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe yesterday and went down like a turd in a well to the point they had to cut off his mic.
When Joe Scarborough asked Scott if Florida Muslims hate America, Scott tried to skate by it by mumbling about his anti-Syrian refugee policy, but Joe pressed on, not caring about Scott’s claims that Florida is a melting pot. It didn’t take long before Mika, off camera told the studio to “wrap it” up and before you knew it, Scott’s interview was cut short.
BRZEZINSKI: No. No. Uh-uh. That’s not answering any questions.
As Gov. Scott tried to continue, Mika stopped him cold, saying she knows he’s a friend of Joe’s, but demanded he answer the question or “should we scoot?” Scott gave an uncomfortable laugh and the interview was terminated.
Got that? He can’t answer a simple yes/no question. No wonder even Republicans in Tallahassee are embarrassed by him.
