President Trump's hostility toward journalists would get deadly if there were no repercussions, according to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough.

"Though he kills journalists, Vladimir Putin on camera actually seems a little more willing to answer tough questions when they are asked of him. Donald Trump can’t even handle that," Scarborough said. "Of course, Donald Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it. I think even his strongest supporters would admit Trump would do whatever he could get away with."

Scarborough, a former Republican congressman who now hosts Morning Joe, suggested the idea after discussing Trump's contentious relationship with the media and referring to the president's interview with 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl. Trump cut his interview short after accusing Stahl of trying to go after him with tough questions while claiming her program on CBS gave his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, only easy questions.

Scarborough is a frequent critic of Trump, who, in turn, has pilloried his show as well as his wife and co-host Mika Brzezinski.

The two became embattled in a public feud earlier this year after Trump pushed a conspiracy theory alleging Scarborough was responsible for the death of Lori Klausutis, a young congressional aide when he was serving as a congressman from Florida as a Republican.

  • To bad rubes, to squelch this garbage, the President releases the interview and how Leslie and her staff cut the interview short, but the President was willing to go longer... SORRY BOOM!!!!

  • I keep betting SOMEDAY we will see the emergence of "old guys with terminal disease" RISING FROM THEIR LA-Z-BOYS and arming themselves for ELIMINATION OF PROBLEMATIC DEMOCRATS... neighbors, judges, legislators, congressmen, senators, media nutz, academias, entertainers, and the occasional pesky president!  I doubt any Democrats have that kind of courage.

    There are a lot of people out there that the only reason they are alive is because it is illegal to kill them.
