Joe Scarborough: 'F-You' If You Don't Believe This Is The Best Biden Ever

March 6th, 2024 4:52 PM

Joe Scarborough MSNBC Morning Joe 3-6-24Joe Scarborough says this is the "best Biden ever"—and "f-you" if you don't believe it.

At the end of his mind-boggling rant on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough swore: "if it weren't the truth, I wouldn't say it."

The only thing that would be worse than Scarborough lying about Biden's mental state, would be if . . . he was actually telling the truth. 

If this is "intellectually, analytically," the best Biden ever, it's horrifying to imagine what he was during all those long years as a senator and Vice President. 

It was recently revealed that Scarborough has become a Biden confidante and frequent phone buddy. During his spiel today, Scarborough bragged that he has spent "hours" chatting with Biden, and came away so impressed.

There was an angry edge to Scarborough's sales pitch. In addition to the "f-you," there was a "pissed off" and a "G--D---." If a guy truly believes what he's saying, why would he need to curse in making his case?

Anyhow, maybe the DNC can turn Scarborough's encomium into a campaign slogan:

"Think Biden's Bad Now? You Shoulda Seen Him Before!"

Here's the transcript.

Morning Joe
9:16 am ET

JOE SCARBOROUGH: There's such a, there's such a challenge for the Biden team. Because, as I've said here on the show over the past couple -- I've spent a good bit of time with Joe Biden. I've spent a couple of hours with Joe Biden, sitting, talking, going around the world as far as talking issues, talking the economy, talking inflation, talking.

And I must say, when I was talking to him, my thought wasn't, oh, poor guy. My thought was, oh, my God, I wish Dr. Brzezinski were on the other side of the table right now, cause these two guys -- I mean, 50 years of experience, and Joe Biden hasn't forgotten it. He may get pissed off at a press conference, and he may be thinking about the Mexican border deal and say Mexico instead of Egypt. He knows what he's talking about, he circles back around, gets to Egypt. He might misplace a word here or there.

But you talk to him for hours at a time. Is he slower? Does he move slower? Yeah, he moves slower. Is he stiffer? Yeah, he moves stiffer. Does he have trouble walking sometimes? Yeah, so did FDR. We get out of the Depression, we won a G.D. war against, against Nazism and, and, and against the Japanese. 

But comparing that guy's mental state -- I've said it for years now: he's cogent. But I undersold him when I said he was cogent. He's far beyond cogent. In fact, I think he's better than he's ever been intellectually, analytically. Because he's been around for 50 years and, you know, I don't know if people know this or not, Biden used to be a hot head. Sometimes that Irishman would get in front of the reasoning. Sometimes he would say things he didn't want to say. This is -- and, and, I don't -- you know what? I don't really care.

Start your tape right now, because I'm about to tell you the truth. And f-you if you can't handle the truth. This version of Biden intellectually, analytically, is the best Biden ever. Not a close second. And I've known him for years. The Brzezinskis have known him for 50 years. If it weren't the truth, I wouldn't say it.
