Joe Scarborough Implodes, Doubles Down on Anti-Trump ‘Bloodbath’ Hoax: ‘We’re Not Stupid’

MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough has gone on an unhinged rant after he was caught promoting the false “bloodbath” narrative about President Donald Trump and doubled down on the debunked hoax.

Over the weekend, Democrats, leftists, liberal celebrities, and their corporate media allies pushed a deceitful lie on the American people by taking a statement from President Trump and twisting it out of context.

During a rally in Ohio on Saturday, Trump explained that there would be a “bloodbath” of job losses in the auto industry due to outsourcing if he’s not elected in November.

Trump made the comment while pledging to protect auto worker jobs, specifically from the threat of Chinese Mexican-made cars.

“No, we’re going to put a 100 percent tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those cars – if I get elected,” Trump said of cars being imported from China and Mexico.

“Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the country; that’ll be the least of it.

“But they’re not going to sell those cars.

“They’re building massive factories.”

The “bloodbath” portion of his comment was immediately pounced upon.

Democrats and Trump critics deceitfully argued it was a clear call for violence in the event he loses November’s election against President Joe Biden.

“It’s clear this guy wants another January 6,” Biden wrote on X.

“But the American people are going to give him another resounding electoral defeat this November.”

However, it was clear to anyone who watched Trump’s remarks that this was a lie and the statement had nothing to do with violence.

WATCH:

“Former President Donald Trump vowed at a rally that there would be a ‘bloodbath’ if he’s not re-elected in November,” NBC News reported.

The Internet was quickly flooded with the same false claim.

“Donald Trump’s America,” Scarborough, the host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” wrote on X along with a carefully edited out-of-context clip from Trump’s speech.

“And he is proud of it.

“Promised another ‘bloodbath’ if he loses again.”

However, X boss Elon Musk called out Scarborough for promoting the “extremely misleading” narrative.

“Jan 6 was not a ‘bloodbath’ by any definition and Trump was referring to job losses in the auto industry when he used that word,” Musk said to Scarborough.

“Your post is extremely misleading.”

However, after deleting his misleading social media post, Scarborough unloaded about the debunked false claims and took a veiled swipe at Musk in a meltdown on his show.

Scarborough doubled down on the lie and blasted “idiots on Twitter” and “idiots on cable news” who called out his anti-Trump hoax.

“It’s just bullsh*t,” Scarborough blasted on “Morning Joe.”

“He knew what he was doing, we’re not stupid.

“Americans aren’t stupid.

“He was talking about a bloodbath.

“Sometimes a bloodbath means a bloodbath and when he finished by saying, ‘that’s not gonna be the least of it…’ seriously?

“These people may be stupid, we’re not.”

However, despite his claims that “a bloodbath means a bloodbath,” the phrase is frequently used by Democrats and liberal media figures, including Scarborough.
