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.

  • You know, it totally amazes me that what they say, they are not picked up by the Secret is not freedom of speech, Everyday they spew HATE speech just to start trouble.

    I will come back later and write  an ACT,  Smith Mundt Modernazation Act  THAT they use to allow all this Lying that is going on. What TRUMP needs to do, is CANCEL IT.

    That Act allows the Press and the MEDIA to lie.... You can look it up!

  • "Joe Scarborough: Trump 'would kill reporters' if he could get away with it"

    Since Scarborough is an authority on this issue, I'd ask Joe if he figures The President could get away with it if done in the Oval Office? (asking from a safe distance privately or in company of course)
