Trump busted by Morning Joe for frightening threat he made after ‘bloodbath’ rant

The hosts and panelists of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” were among the many Americans disturbed by Donald Trump’s prediction of a “bloodbath” should he lose re-election in November made while speaking to rabid supporters in Ohio over the weekend.

Added to that, as co-host Joe Scarborough noted, was Trump’s follow-up comment which got little notice but that should be seen as equally alarming.

With the entire panel dismissing pushback from the Trump campaign claiming the former president was only talking about the auto industry, Scarborough cut to the chase and called the Trump response “bull—t.”

After showing a clip of the now-infamous rally speech, where Trump threatened, “Now if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath,” Scarborough focused on what came next.

“It was a distinction without a difference, talking about the auto industry, then it’ll be a bloodbath,” the MSNBC host began. “Maybe you can connect that to the auto industry — maybe you can, okay. Again, I’ve never really heard people discuss macroeconomics in terms of bloodbaths, but maybe so, for argument’s sake.”

“But then he says, ‘…and that’s going to be the least of it,'” he pointed out. “If you think there’s going to be a bloodbath in the auto industry, even if you take that argument at face value, which, again, given the tone of the rest of the speech, bloodbath, I’m not sure he’s talking about the niceties of international trade; let’s take that argument as is. Then he goes on and says, ‘That’s going to be the least of it,’ repeats it, ‘it’s going to be the least of it.'”

“Folks obviously, he’s talking about a bloodbath for America,” he elaborated. “It’s laid out in the terms of it. These idiots on Twitter, these idiots on cable news, idiots on Sunday shows going, ‘He was only talking about the industry…’ That’s bull—-t. I’ll say that at 6:15 a.m. it was bull—t.”

“He knew what he was doing — we’re not stupid. Americans aren’t stupid,” he added. “He was talking about a bloodbath. Sometimes a bloodbath means a bloodbath. When he finishes by saying, ‘And that’s just going to be the least of it,’ seriously? These people may be stupid, we’re not.”
