Joe Scarborough critiques the Donald Trump presidential campaign and the threat he believes the presumptive Republican presidential nominee poses to down-ballot candidates.
On Monday, Scarborough also said there are so many things Republicans could do to push Trump against the wall and to make his life difficult.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: [Donald Trump] could be doing so much better. It is an embarrassment, every day, the embarrassment deepens, because he just simply refuses to stop playing to the lowest common denominator. That lowest common denominator over the weekend got Donald Trump saying that people drinking alcohol in a nightclub at 2:00 a.m., should have guns strapped to their waists and firing those weapons. He said it, bullets, gunfight at the O.K. Corral gunfight at an Orlando nightclub at 2:00 a.m. when bullets are flying across -- not just there, he's suggesting that people take guns, strapped to their waists, to nightclubs. Something that even the NRA will not follow him down that dark rabbit hole...
Does Donald John Trump want to actually win? And all of the evidence, if you look at all of the objective evidence on what is required to win a presidential race... he is going to turn the White House over to Hillary Clinton. He's going to turn the United States Supreme Court over to Hillary Clinton.
He can say what he wants, but anybody that knows politics knows that this is the equivalent of a guy training for a marathon and five weeks before the marathon, all he's doing is sitting on his couch, drinking beer, talking about how great of a runner he is. And don't forget the Senate and maybe the House, too.
And by the way, these Republicans that are saying, oh, you need to just blindly get behind him. They don't understand, he's not only turning the White House over to Hillary Clinton by his actions, and he is, he's turning over the Supreme Court for a generation.
Those of us who actually care about things like this, and have been worried about things like this for decades, know that his actions today lead to a Supreme Court that liberals dominate for a generation. The Senate endangered. You look at the numbers, we're starting to see that. And the House of Representatives possibly also even in danger.
And we're making a warning today, or at least I am, because it's going to be too late, soon. We were talking about this six weeks ago, before we skidded into the ditch adds badly as he has. He doesn't have that much time to clean things up. And it just keeps getting worse every day.
Scarborough ripped the Trump political apparatus, declaring "there is no campaign."
