The moment occurred a day after the U.S. Capitol was broken into by rioters who were egged on earlier in the day by the three men in an effort to disrupt the congressional certification of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ 2020 election victory.
“If these insurrectionists were Black, they would have been shot in the face,” Scarborough fumed. “And my God, if these insurrectionists were Muslim they would have been sniped from the top of buildings.”
Law enforcement has been heavily criticized for its response to the rioters — who were mostly white — in comparison to the response to last year’s Black Lives Matter protests. A screaming Scarborough made clear he felt police failed miserably Wednesday.
“So I want to know from the Capitol Hill police — what, is it just white people? Or is it Donald Trump supporters? Why do you scream at people for walking across the street three blocks away from the Capitol?” Scarborough exclaimed. “Why are you known as these badasses around the Capitol? But then Trump supporters come in and you open the fucking doors for them. You open the doors for them and let them breach the people’s house. What is wrong with you?”
He then sunk his teeth into Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Giuliani for their part in whipping up the unruly mob Wednesday morning. All three continued to spread lies that Trump won the 2020 election — which he lost, soundly. What’s more, all three encouraged force used in the mob’s efforts.
“That’s insurrection against the United States of America and if Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump are not arrested today for insurrection and taken to jail and booked — and if the Capitol Hill police do not go through every video and look at the face of every person that invaded our Capitol and if they are not arrested and brought to justice today — then we are no longer a nation of laws and we only tell people they can do this again,” Scarborough said.
