Joe Scarborough Discovers ‘Disgusting’ Daily Caller Racism, Is Surprised (VIDEO)

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

All the hatred money can buyWe wonder who Joe Scarborough is talking about here, when he calls out rightwing websites for being “beneath contempt” in their treatment of Trayvon Martin! (No we don’t. He is talking about Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller.) Noting that the Daily Caller had breathlessly presented Trayvon Martin’s Twitter feed as fodder for the poor oppressed whites of the world to note what a bad bad boy Trayvon Martin was, Scarborough practically throws up at the disingenuousness of presenting something so “innocuous … I can show you a lot of white kids, from suburban neighborhoods … come on.” Then he goes on and on and on about some on the right (Tucker Carlson) being “disgusting, warped, twisted and distorted.” Transcript and video of Joe Scarborough calling out Tucker Carlson for hurting America, after the jump.

Here, Tucker, here is just a tiny bit of what Joe Scarborough thinks of you now.

“Some out there are marginalizing themselves, making fools of themselves. I guess it’s because the President actually said something to comfort the parents, and I guess they just can’t handle that. I guess in their warped, twisted, distorted, political worldview, that makes this dead 17-year-old boy [...] I guess that makes it okay?”

At least Tucker never killed an intern. (Well, that we know of).

Steverino247 March 30, 2012 at 11:47 am

Hey, maybe she was wearing a hoodie. Ever think of that?

actor212 March 30, 2012 at 11:56 am

In fairness to Scarborough, she was probably bashing his skull against the sidewalk. I know I would have.

An_Outhouse March 30, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Is it murder if they forgot the safe word?

gullywompr March 30, 2012 at 11:47 am

And he calls himself a Florida Republican…

MissTaken March 30, 2012 at 11:49 am

I suppose some of that MSNBC smartypantsness is finally rubbing off on old Joe.

Barb March 30, 2012 at 11:50 am

What 17 year-old isn't "bad?"
I'm tired of hearing about the hoodie. Like they never shot a black person in a suit? Ask Martin Luther King Jr.

actor212 March 30, 2012 at 11:56 am

Norman Bates?

SayItWithWookies March 30, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Or Malcolm X. Or the guy in this picture.

flamingpdog March 30, 2012 at 10:45 pm

The other night, I looked at some pictures of the Washington D. C. riots after MLK was shot, and there was one with a couple of black dudes in suits running from a store with a shattered front window, with goods in their arms. They weren't shot because DC has a black mayor, Walter Washington, who told his police "no, no, no" about the shooting looters thingie. I realized that was probably the first time in over 40 years that I had looked at pics and stories about the 1968 riots in DC. Those were not happy times…

Lucidamente1 March 30, 2012 at 11:50 am

Well, of course. This takes time away from criticizing Obama for not being bipartisan enough.

Jus_Wonderin March 30, 2012 at 11:51 am

I think the real issue here is that, given we have historically ONLY had WHITE men as President, when Mr. Obama says "Trayvon looks like he could be my son", the radical racists hear…"fuck you, whitey, I won this fuckin Whitehouse in 2008 and you couldn't do shit about it, Motherfuckers". I might be wrong.

ChernobylSoup March 30, 2012 at 11:59 am

If you didn't hear "KILL WHITEY" in those Presidential remarks, you were not listening

Baconzgood March 30, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Where's my M'Fing iced tea?

littlebigdaddy March 30, 2012 at 11:51 am

Sounds like Joe may be a recovering Republican.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 11:52 am

What's that you say, Ms Schoenkopf ?
Jokin' Joe has left and gone away, Hey hey hey?

gullywompr March 30, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Rebecca is the most attractive of all my parents' friends. I mean that.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I saw her strolling around the grounds. You know, just until she felt at home.

hagajim March 30, 2012 at 11:54 am

Trust me, Joe isn't going liberal….he just isn't as insane as the rest of them. But he did call the Daily Caller mainstream – which it obviously isn't. I imagine its about as mainstream as the Wonkette….but meaner with less snark.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 30, 2012 at 12:57 pm

He still thinks the clowns who drafted Floriduh's "Stand Yer Ground" law did the right thing. Joe's worried that the truly insane wingnuts are making the merely dumb ones look bad.

Jus_Wonderin March 30, 2012 at 11:54 am

Doesn't that photo of Tucker look as if he just noticed a big _______ that just passed his silken lips?

(Fill in the blank?)

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 11:57 am

Schnitzengruben?

Steverino247 March 30, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Fifteen's my limit, by the way.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 12:02 pm

It's Twoo, it's Twoo.

elviouslyqueer March 30, 2012 at 12:09 pm

half-gallon of Schweddy Balls?

Biel_ze_Bubba March 31, 2012 at 6:16 am

Outbound half-gallon.

actor212 March 30, 2012 at 11:55 am

Holy shit, when Java Joe comes out as the voice of reason on the right….well, I'm going to go search the sky for the alien podpeople…

nounverb911 March 30, 2012 at 11:56 am

They are already infesting Times Square.

actor212 March 30, 2012 at 11:57 am

Lemme get my camera…

sewollef March 30, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Times Square? Never go there… it's a little like the plague virus to me.

If I'm walking uptown, I circumnavigate around the festering, tourist podpeople shit hole by a margin of two blocks east or west — at least.

And even then… 8th Avenue?? Don't get me started on 8th and 42nd. Another shit hole infested with strange people not from New York

Biel_ze_Bubba March 31, 2012 at 6:20 am

There's just something about bus stations, isn't there?

tihond March 30, 2012 at 11:56 am

Scarborough: "I always thought Tucker was a Nation of Islam member."

Schmannnity March 30, 2012 at 11:56 am

Say what you will about Joe, at least he can conjugate the verb break. Rev. Al last night was a travesty.

James Michael Curley March 30, 2012 at 12:05 pm

I knew Rev. Al when he was a travesty. He could never get the nail and lip color combo to work.

ThundercatHo March 30, 2012 at 11:57 am

That face! PUNCH IT!! PUNCH IT!!!

RedneckMuslin March 30, 2012 at 11:57 am

Nice of you to notice the racism, Joe, but you still didn't call anybody out on it.

cheetojeebus March 30, 2012 at 11:57 am

I don't know, did he say "Tucker " ?

SorosBot March 30, 2012 at 11:57 am

The bigots took over the Republican party a long time ago; how is Joe just noticing it now?

ManchuCandidate March 30, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Lots of people want to live the lie.

Dr. Nick Riviera March 30, 2012 at 10:49 pm

New Glasses?

HippieEsq March 30, 2012 at 11:58 am

Joe Scarborough just announced his candidacy for Congress (District – "anywhere but Florida").

ElPinche March 30, 2012 at 11:59 am

Don't be confused. Joe is just playing the "reasonable" Republican. Shorter: " This Daily Caller racism is an isolated incident, just like the Martin incident. I feel better about being a Republican again! "

As for Mika, she needs a good spanking till that ass is nice and pink.

Toomush_Infer March 30, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Yum on the Mika comment…

el_donaldo March 30, 2012 at 11:59 am

Mika's giving a pretty intense "disapproving Mom" look.

actor212 March 30, 2012 at 12:00 pm

I wish she'd give me that look.

While wearing a leather bustier and hip boots.

I'll be in my bunk for the next hour or so…

ManchuCandidate March 30, 2012 at 11:59 am

I'm shocked Joe cares. Maybe he's discovered his conscience.

Jerri March 30, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Tucker always struck me as one of those sweaty, unpopular nerds even other nerds didn't like, so to try to gain some kind of higher ground, he amped up the bullying and meanness in a sad and desperate effort to get in with the popular kids who just use him to 1. be mean to other kids for them and 2. have one more thing to make fun of him for, especially when he tries to ask one of the popular girls to the prom.

I'm close, aren't I, Tucker?

actor212 March 30, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I'm also betting that many of his stories start "One summer, in band camp…"

Jerri March 30, 2012 at 12:06 pm

And, "Oh yeah, well at my dad's summer mansion I got one of the maid's daughters to give it to me behind the equipment shed. Her boobs were sooo lumpy! It was…What? Why are you laughing? No really, she totally made out with me! You know what, fuck you guys, my family is richer than yours."

randcoolcatdaddy March 30, 2012 at 12:00 pm

"I'm SHOCKED, SHOCKED that racism is going on here! Now, where's my lawn jockey…."

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Uncle Remus just knocked it off of the lawn.

Baconzgood March 30, 2012 at 12:01 pm

If you just said somthing that made you sound empathetic…You might be RINO

Blueb4sunrise March 30, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Joe S. makes me proud to be white.

ElPinche March 30, 2012 at 12:28 pm

hahaha..i wish i can upfist in increments of 100.

SteveMcCroskey March 30, 2012 at 12:05 pm

The beady-eyed shit weasel is right for once. Unfortunately he'll be back to his old self by Monday, after a fresh infusion of bile, mescaline and lemon pledge.

jjdaddyo March 30, 2012 at 12:05 pm

If Joe doesn't watch out, Rush is going to issue a fatwa against him.

comrad_darkness March 30, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Rush does give new breadth to the term "fatwa" doesn't he?

starfanglednut March 30, 2012 at 6:34 pm

iswydt.

SayItWithWookies March 30, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Good ol' Joe — being just sensitive enough to get oodles of respect from all those people who've been kicked out of the GOP for being RINOs.

sullivanst March 30, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Nice little reminder that despicable as Schmo is, the right has soooooo many others soooooo much worse than him.

Toomush_Infer March 30, 2012 at 12:28 pm

I like the part toward the end where Joe says: "sick, twisted, distorted…." while MIka looks down at his crotch and finally comments: "That's pretty thick….coming up…." You can't write dialogue like that…

Beetagger March 30, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Joe looks like a giant, circumcised penis wearing a sweater.

DerrickWildcat March 30, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I gotta give props to my peep. Joe has been allover this from the get go.

wood50 March 30, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Tucker Carlson?

Is he the son of WKRP Station manager Arhtur Carlson?

EmileZoloft March 30, 2012 at 12:43 pm

He was always my favorite of those guys. Among the women I liked Phoebe.

ttommyunger March 30, 2012 at 12:46 pm

" … makes this dead 17-year-old boy [...] I guess that makes it okay?” Now a dead female intern? That's just collateral damage, that's OK.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 30, 2012 at 12:47 pm

"They should listen to wise conservative thinkers."
AHAHAHAHAHA.

anniegetyerfun March 30, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Those glasses make Joe look smart.

imissopus March 30, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Listen to the National Review? Home of such luminous thinkers as Kathryn Jean Lopez and Rich Lowry? Sorry Joe, you still can't get me to like you.

pdiddycornchips March 30, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Gawd, this story, the whole episode should be a teachable moment. A young man is dead and the only reason he's dead is the color of his skin. Maybe instead of looking for reasons to explain why he deserved to get shot, we ought to reflect on how often this shit happens and why. Not us. The great US of A. We have people like Tucker who in a world still able to distinguish between right and wrong, would lose his place at the big media table for doing oppo research on a dead kid (and finding nothing. He was an average 17 year old). In our world, all will be forgiven in a couple of weeks when this shit is surpassed by some other story. Tucker will still get invited to lecture us about the evils of liberalism and the virtues of being a conservative. These assholes never pay a price.

pinkocommi March 30, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Classic case of the pot calling the kettle 'blah.'

owhatever March 30, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Tucker Carlson again? More cow bells.

ttommyunger March 30, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Joe needz moar sweater vests.

rickmaci March 30, 2012 at 1:49 pm

LOL. Like Barry Goldwater, Joe woke up shocked to discover the RepubliKKKan Party has moved so far into the right wing cuckoosphere that it is too shameful, even for him.

qwerty42 March 30, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Just listened; Joe seems to have gotten more angry (for a television host) as he went on.

spareme March 30, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I remember when Don Imus kicked Tucker off his show, and had a huge rant and rave fit, refused to let me back on his show – evah. Also, a couple shows where he was still bitchng about him. I believe he called him a twerp – being nice, and all. Of course, coming from Imus….

donner_froh March 30, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Scarborough speaks like a recovering stroke victim.

ingloriousbytch March 30, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Every time a conservative comes to his senses, an angel gets its wings.

Dr. Nick Riviera March 30, 2012 at 10:51 pm

Needless to say, there is a lot of walking in heaven.

fuflans March 30, 2012 at 8:56 pm

i imagine when mittbot repeals everything everywhere and we have loads more pipelines america will be great again and we can all put this unpleasantness away in a quiet room.

spends2much March 30, 2012 at 11:14 pm

I started bitching about this idiot at a dinner party tonight, but nobody else knew who the hell he was. I kind of like it that way. Irrelevance is the best gift we can give shitbags like Tucker Carlson.

WonkCynic April 2, 2012 at 3:56 am

If it was a dead 17 year old Palestinian school girl the liberal Jews would be high fiving each other and shouting "go team" on their way to land grab her daddy's house on the strip.
