Look, Joe, I love what ex Republicans like Joe Scarborough, Nicole Wallace and Steve Schmidt are doing to combat Trumpsm, but they are not pure as the driven snow. They in fact supported Goldwater, who was an out and out racist, and Romald Regan who was among the first to seriously undermine the peoples's confidence in government.

In fact Scarborough and company were holding hands fot twenty, thirthy years with those Republicans chipping away at the people's confidence in our democratic institutions. It would make their case against Trumpism that much better if they would own up to their own sins.
