Discussing the debt ceiling deal currently on the table, Scarborough spun a tale of how, back when Mark Meadows was a congressman back in 2017, Joe had emphatically instructed him to get spending under control. As Scarborough described it:
"I remember talking to Mark Meadows, going to him I think in 2017, going, "Dude! You guys are spending too much money!" Instead of doing all your stupid virtue signaling, you need to start focusing on spending.
"I told Meadows this twice while we were having lunch at the Capitol! I said, "you have got to use your position to actually curb spending in Washington, D.C. It's out of control."
But should we really believe that this was Scarborough's advice in the first year of President Trump? No. Let's reach back into the NewsBusters archive, as then-intern Kevin Baker demonstrated the real Joe almost exactly six years ago:
“I'm a fiscal conservative. But when I look at this budget, the blueprint that the President has proposed, it is nothing less than hateful.” He then proceeded to expound upon the budget’s many vices crying out, “It guts basic services, it slashes cancer research, it slashes health care for the poor, it slashes money for rural hospitals, it slashes money for rural hospice care, it slashes money for anything involving health care in rural America!”

That Joe Scarborough is a real lady killer.
Freakin’ liar Scarborough! He claims to have told Mark Meadows to cut spending. But at the time, he went on TV and condemned Trump for CUTTING spending.
And, oh yeah, he remembers telling Meadows this when he was Trump’s chief of staff in 2017. That didn’t happen until three years later!!
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
Do you ever wonder why these people, democrats and their media lackeys, lie so much?
Well who is the Father of Lies?
Could it be Hillary's Brother, AKA...
Moron Joe is sooooo cute when he lies ... which is about every time he opens his mouth.
