MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough: Many of the Trump Supporters Have a ‘Sickness’ — It’s Trump’s ‘Personality Cult’

On Wednesday’s episode of “Morning Joe,” MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said that certain supporters of former President Donald Trump have a “sickness” as they express a desire for authoritarianism.

During Tuesday’s Fox News Channel town hall, host Sean Hannity posed the question, “Can you assure the American people tonight that you would never misuse power as retribution against anyone under any circumstances?”

Trump replied: “Except for day one.”

“I want to close the border, and I want to drill, drill, drill,” he added.

Scarborough said: “If any other politician in American history were asked the question ‘Are you going to be a dictator?’ Well no. Donald Trump never answered it. He never answered it. There’s a sickness, there is a sickness among, unfortunately, some of our fellow Americans regarding authoritarianism and totalitarianism.”

“They want it because Willie, when he promised that he would be a dictator on day one, he got applause!” he added.

Mika Brzezinski said: “Well, that’s on Fox News. And therefore, a lot of people are watching.”

Scarborough said: “It is a personality cult and it is very bad for America. And make no mistake of it, a large chunk of those people in that audience cheering when Donald Trump said, I’ll be a dictator on day one. Well, they want that.”
