Joe Scarborough, host of the popular “Morning Joe” television show, blasted 2016 GOP Presidential candidate Marco Rubio this week, calling him “thin skinned” after the Senator used his comments to raise money in a fundraising email.
According to The Hill:
“MSNBC host Joe Scarborough unloaded on Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Tuesday, blasting the presidential candidate for fundraising off remarks he made that were critical of a Rubio ad.
Scarborough was mentioned in a Rubio campaign fundraising email that went out Monday morning, which sought to fundraise off Scarborough’s claim that a new Rubio campaign ad was “nativist.”
In the ad, Rubio says the 2016 election is “about all of us who feel out of touch in our own country.”
Scarborough on Tuesday blasted the Rubio campaign as “thin-skinned.”
“Here’s a guy that flies around in private jets every day, and he has for years,” Scarborough said. “Here’s a guy that sits in luxury suites at Miami Dolphins football games, and other football games around America. Here’s a guy that got paid $800,000 by a massive powerful Manhattan publishing company for a book … and he’s got the guts to go on and lift a line out of this nativist playbook?””
