“Are we positive? Are we positive, he would not drink? I imply, I perceive: his brother. Yeah, his brother drank and so he did not. We have heard that.”
A bit later, Scarborough in contrast President Trump to Otis, the city drunk on the “Andy Griffith Present.”
Joe Scarborough: ghoul.
Scarborough mentioned that if Trump had proposed the $2,000 checks earlier than the election, he might have received—significantly if he had additionally taken Scarborough’s recommendation to talk solely in regards to the economic system.
