This morning on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe‘, Joe Scarborough called out the NRA for their latest ad against Senator Joe Manchin for his role in the Gun Control Bill (Toomey-Manchin Bill) that was voted down earlier this year. In the attack ad the NRA linked Joe Manchin to President Obama and NYC Mayor Bloomberg, Scarborough attacked the NRA for the misleading ad and also took the NRA to task for the image used for President Obama. Scarborough noted how some people asked him if he thought the ad purposely darkened the image of Obama with shading, to make him look “more ominous”
It’s so obvious, look at his hands. It looks like he is a coal miner from West Virginia, look how dark they made his hands. Look at the side of his face, this is a question that answers itself… You don’t have to call me up and ask me if I think the Washington NRA shaded Barack Obama hands… – Joe Scarborough
Here is a clip from ‘Morning Joe’ continuing to talk about the NRA:
As a fan of ‘Morning Joe’ I was a lil surprised Scarborough’s comments, my surprise was not in judgement of whether he was ‘right or ‘wrong’. This is something I would have expected (not in a bad way) from his co-host Mika Brzezinski. Scarborough is far from being a Obama fan, so when a Republican like him makes an observation like this… You can’t but take notice.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
