MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” has urged conservatives who underestimate the deadly riots in the Capitol to stop saying they support law enforcement.
“You can release us now, at this point, as you watch – if you continue to defend what happened on January 6, you can release our support for the blue. It means nothing. If you really believe the police are heroic – I accidentally agree with this position – this video should make you sick to your stomach. “It should scare you,” said co-host Willie Geist, following the release of a recent post by Capitol police officers who waved American flags at supporters of former President Donald Trump.
Geist and co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough continued to discuss the various GOP figures who have escalated the violence since that day, in which five people died as Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the election victory of President Joe Biden in 2020.
A sharp divide is clear in politics and the media: On Monday, former NBC News and Fox News host Megyn Kelly commented on her podcast – which will soon be a show on SiriusXM – “There is no doubt that the media thus represented it much worse than it actually was. “
