(FiveNation.com)- “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough totally lost it after he was held accountable for disgusting comments he made during his show on Tuesday about the damage done to businesses by Democrats, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter activists during 2020’s summer of riots.
Scarborough went on an unhinged rant on his Tuesday show, minimizing the trauma experienced by thousands of American families whose homes or businesses were destroyed by the left-wing rioters.
“I know there are idiots on other cable news channels that will say, ‘Well this mom and pop store was vandalized during the summer riots, and that’s just as bad as the United States Capitol being vandalized,’ No jackass, it’s not,” he claimed.
Why does Joe Scarborough think that the Capitol Building is more important than American families and taxpayers?
Scarborough tried to justify his claim by describing how the Capitol Building is the center of American democracy, and then went on to call American-owned businesses “taco stands.”
Just in case you didn’t believe the depths this guy is willing to stoop to, let’s take a look at the exact quote.
“And while I am a fierce believer in people’s right to defend their private property, I’m not going to confuse a taco stand with the United States Capitol. I’m not going to confuse the selling of tacos with actually moving through a constitutional process that is laid out in the United States Constitution for members of the House and the Senate to actually perform their constitutional duties,” he said.
The “taco stands” Scarborough is talking about included the black business district in Kenosha which was almost completely burned down by “racial justice” rioters last summer.
Just a taco stand?
When conservative news outlet The Daily Caller published a clip of Scarborough’s rant, he lost it even more. The MSNBC host attempted to defend himself, asking the outlet, “Are you too stupid to understand the destruction of personal property is abhorrent, and at the same time realize that a terrorist attack against the US Capitol is a greater threat to America?”
No jackass. It was a furniture store. And the freaks who burned it down should rot in jail until they pay him back.

When The Daily Caller responded by sending a video of a Kenosha, Wisconsin resident whose store had been burned down, Scarborough responded by saying, “It was a furniture store.”
While the Capitol Hill riot was condemned by all high-profile and elected Republicans, the 2020 riots have been widely excused by Democrats and left-wing media personalities.
