 “Unmoored from Reality” Joe Scarborough Critiques Trump’s Fox News Interview Post-Conviction


MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough offered a critical review of Donald Trump’s recent interview on Fox News, describing the former president as increasingly “unmoored from reality.” This commentary followed Trump’s appearance with Fox News hosts Will Cain, Pete Hegseth, and Rachel Campos-Duffy after his conviction on all 34 felony counts last week in New York.

Despite choosing not to watch the interview live, Scarborough’s assessment was shaped by second-hand accounts and his later review of the interview’s content. “I was not watching because I do my best not to watch live Donald Trump,” Scarborough admitted. “I will go back, then I’ll look at it later or read about it, are any people that are going to spew lies for as long as he did? But I started getting texts from people on the Biden campaign that I know, and they were like, ‘Thank God the trial is over, this is the moment we’ve been waiting for – stay up there, Donald, keep talking, Donald.'”

Scarborough pointed out that the former president’s narrative during the interview continued to push the baseless claim that President Joe Biden has directed his criminal prosecutions. He argued that this assertion not only lacks credibility but also misrepresents the political dynamics at play. According to Scarborough, the Biden campaign sees Trump’s public appearances and the nature of his allegations as beneficial to their cause, reports Raw Story.

“Again, the idea that the Biden campaign or Joe Biden wanted Donald Trump locked down for six weeks, not going out, not sounding crazy, not sounding actually a lot crazier than he did four, five years ago, completely takes the wrong view of what’s going on here,” Scarborough explained. “The Biden campaign loved what they saw on Friday because they know what people on the inside of the Trump campaign know, and that is that Donald Trump is getting even crazier, even — when I say crazier, I mean angrier, more unmoored from reality, and the one thing he has completely stopped doing is asking, ‘Hey, what do you think of this? What do you think of that?’ He’s just completely raging and on his own.”

Scarborough’s comments underscore a deep skepticism about Trump’s current state of mind and his influence on political discourse. The critique reflects a broader dialogue within media and political circles about the impact of Trump’s rhetoric and actions on the political landscape, particularly in the wake of his legal challenges and the broader implications for his political future.
