Skip to comments.Scarborough: DeSantis Is 'All Hat, No Cattle,' Bad Retail Politician (Who Won by 19 Points)
Posted on 12/14/2022 10:10:55 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Joe Scarborough's split political personality was on glaring display on today's Morning Joe.
On the one hand, there was Scarborough's seething hatred of Donald Trump. The clip begins with Scarborough shouting: "he's guilty! He's guilty!" Scarborough also offered a relatively objective take that Ron DeSantis' brand of politics could be the winning formula for Republicans in 2024.
But heaven forbid that Scarborough should say too many positive things about a potential 2024 Republican presidential contender. And thus Joe was obliged to balance his praise for the DeSantis brand by taking some serious shots at the Florida governor.
Scarborough alleged that DeSantis is "all hat, no cattle," i.e. someone who talks big but doesn't carry through on his positions. Joe also downplayed the significance of DeSantis' overwhelming victory, claiming that "He was running against nobody. He was playing against the Washington Generals [Harlem Globetrotters reference]. The Democratic party in the state of Florida is dead."

Sure, Joe. DeSantis is a mediocre politician. The kind that wins in a former swing state by 19 points.
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
LOL! And Scarborough doesn’t even have the hat.
I’ll bet most gop led with 19 points
Why any rational Republican/conservative would think its inconsistent for a MSM type to hate both Trump and DeSantis escapes me.
What did Lori Klausitis have to say about it?
Exactly. Trump, we all know. DeSantis is hated in particular for his very public (and winning) stances on cultural issues. He's been out in front on the transgender crap, and what really terrifies the left is that his stances on that have been popular with the mass of voters. So if he takes that national, he could blow up the whole thing.
Wonder if all those new NeverTrumpers notice a pattern????
DeSantis sure gets a lot of attention for a guy who isn’t running.
Yeah, and Scarborough is a Nobel prize winning retard.
That expression has been used by the anti-DeSantis forces on FR as well
Didn’t Slow Joe become a Dem a few years ago?
After quitting the GOP, Scarborough didn’t officially register as a Democrat. But functionally, he certainly serves as a Democrat mouthpiece.
Yeah Joe and Ho, fighting Disney is no cattle. What did you ever do other than suck at the trough and spew lies?
why does anyone care what this compromised talking head has to say.
Dead girl or live boy is in his background to keep this little toady spewing cr@p.
Yeah, “Coincidentally” he became a Dem after they found a dead intern in his office.
Obviously, Joe has never looked at himself in a mirror...
Scarborough is a FRAUD.
One of the main problems in our culture, and especially among conservatives, is that idiots like Scarborough are constantly quoted as if what they say reflects reality. Always a passive response to what the left is saying, instead of telling them all to just go to hell. I could be more explicit. There is a Southernism that fits quite well here. This insanity about gender, drag queens, etc., could have been nipped in the bud if conservative people in responsible positions would have told them all to drop dead instead of trying to intellectually counter their idiocies with logic and principles.
