Joe Scarborough Warns GOP Senator Who Called Pelosi 'Dumb' at Trump Rally: 'That's Your Moment When You Die'

MSNBC

President Donald Trump held a rally in Monroe, Louisiana on Wednesday night where he invited Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) to the podium for a few words.

Kennedy proceeded to rail against Democrats, especially House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), whose move to launch impeachment proceedings against Trump has sent Republicans into attack mode in an effort to discredit the investigation.


After saying he merant no disrespect, Kennedy proceeded to say of Pelosi:

"It must suck to be that dumb."

While the spectators predictably applauded and laughed, others took issue with Kennedy calling the most powerful elected woman in history "dumb."

Former Republican Congressman and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was among them, and he didn't mince words when calling Kennedy out for it.

Watch below.

Scarborough remarked about Kennedy:

"He has degraded himself. Oh and by the way, Senator, guess what: No matter what you do the rest of your life, that's your moment when you die."

He went on:

"Your bio 30, 40 years from now, whenever it is, that's your moment. Congratulations. You did it for a man who committed crimes...you did it for a man who was actually willing to sell out the United States of America for some dirt on Joe Biden. You did it for a man who, again, has destroyed the Conservative movement."

Scarborough proceeded to recite the laundry list of Trump policies and scandals that have done anything but make America great.

Others felt the same.

With a name like John Kennedy, contrasts between the Senator and iconic President John F. Kennedy were inevitably invoked.

"John Kennedy" is now trending on Twitter with thousands of people dunking on the Senator's comments.
