MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” mocked the “bizarre collection of alternative facts and alternative realities told by cranks and misfits” on display during the first night of the Republican National Convention.
Republican host Joe Scarborough compared the over-the-top speech from Kimberly Guilfoyle — Donald Trump Jr.’s mistress — to similar speech given by “The Office” character Dwight Schrute:
The couple that carried guns outside their house and pointing at Black Lives Matter protesters saying Joe Biden wants to abolish the suburbs. You go down the whole list and, of course, Donald Trump — even had Donald Trump yesterday, even with his people begging him, stay on message, try to paint Joe Biden as a left-winger.
Instead, he repeated his lie that Barack Obama spied on his campaign in 2016, something that has been disproven time and time again, and his own aides were so discouraged that he did it because he can’t stay on script.
But, you know, you had Don Jr. saying that the choice was between — this is very funny, actually — church, work and school, or rioting, looting and vandalism. Yes, Don Jr. and Donald Trump is the paragon of church, work and school. You just go down the list. Even Nikki Haley, whatever she wants, I hope it’s worth it for her
