What Joe Scarborough Said He’s Thankful For On Thanksgiving Is Stomach Churning

Thanksgiving was this Thursday, as most of you well know, which is a time when folks all across the country sit down to a wonderful feast meal and express their gratitude for the myriad of blessings in their lives that they enjoy each and every day.

The things people are thankful for range from family and friends, jobs, new opportunities, pets, you name it.

Well, it appears that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is thankful for a very specific person this year: Hillary Clinton.

Yikes.

On Thursday night, the “Morning Joe” co-host shared an extensive Twitter update giving thanks for Clinton, all while taking shots at President Donald Trump.

Scarborough wrote, “I’m thankful that as a young Goldwater Republican, Hillary Rodham became interested in public service. The tragedy of Vietnam transformed her politics but did not dampen her passion to try and make the world a better place.”

He went on and added that he’s grateful for the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate’s work ethic and determination.

“Though I’ve not often been on her side politically, I have respected her grit, determination and fierce work ethic,” Scarborough added. “History will remember her as a challenged campaigner but should also remember her as a senator passionate about policy who was respected by Senate Republicans.”

Scarborough concluded his Clinton celebration by noting that Americans simply “deserve better” — presumably “better” than Trump as president.

“Why give thanks for Hillary?” the MSNBC personality asked. “Because we must all do a better job understanding that the treatment Secretary Clinton has received from Trump and his allies discourages others on both sides from committing their lives to public service. Hillary deserves better. We deserve better.”

Wow. Just wow.

How does one even respond to that? It’s sort of crazy, really. It’s understandable to be thankful for the work folks do, but to be thankful for a politician, regardless of party affiliation, seems a bit on the odd side.

Well, one thing’s for sure. The majority of us with common sense in this country are definitely grateful for one thing about Hillary Clinton.

We’re thankful she lost the 2016 presidential election and that, in light of that, our nation has been given an opportunity to rebound from eight years of Obama.

That’s something to give thanks for.
