Joe Scarborough on Guns: Is He Fully "Woke" or Just a Flaming Say-Anything-for-Ratings Hypocrite

That’s a rhetorical question, of course. We saw during the 2016 campaign the way he relentlessly sucked up and promoted Donald Trump only to turn into a hero of the anti-Trump faction once Trump had the nomination.

Here’s the backstory. Scarborough is on a tear lambasting the NRA, gun rights advocates, and many gun owners as terrorist sympathizers and accessories to murder.

But is this the real Joe Scarborough? You may recall back to when Scarborough was a member of Congress. And the difference is rather stunning.

The Daily Caller has found Scarborough’s candidate questionnaires. They are pretty interesting.

The NRA must elect & support candidates who will view the gun rights issue as a constitutional battle. The founding fathers did not give us the 2nd Amendment to protect our rights to shoot ducks. Our constitutional right to bear arms is so we may protect our family in the manner we choose. No compromise!

Pretty strong stuff, eh?

Let’s be serious. Gun control is Joe Scarborough’s new Mika. Just like he cheated on and eventually dumped his wife for something he perceived more glamorous and useful to his career, Scarborough has now dumped his entire history of principles and the U.S. Constitution.
