Scarborough: Republicans Are "Yearning" For Just One Person To Stand Up, Challenge "Racist" Trump


MSNBC's Joe Scarborough explained how Gov. Chris Christie -- as well as other Republicans -- could get out of endorsing Trump. Scarborough advised Christie to say Trump represented the working class of New Jersey but he can no longer support the candidate because of his "racist" rhetoric. This followed co-host Mika Brzezinski calling on Christie to rescind his endorsement of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

"Let me tell you what Republicans are yearning for, at least a good number of Republicans," Scarborough said on Friday's Morning Joe. "One person, just one person. It's not Paul Ryan. Because Paul Ryan said, 'Okay, I'm for the racist because he's not Hillary.' It's not Paul Ryan."

"But just imagine what a Chris Christie standing up saying, I got behind this guy because I believed that he understood what working class voters across New Jersey and America -- what they weren't hearing from the Republican leaders. I got behind him for the right reasons, but you know what, he's not following through on his commitment to me or to the Republican voters and I can't be part of this anymore," Scarborough implored.

"You can change your mind," Brzezinski reminded Christie.
