Joe Scarborough’s Message To Voters Is Exactly What Trump Didn’t Want To Hear



They’re finally here, people. The elections that we have been awaiting and dreading for so long have finally arrived on our doorstep. These are the most significant midterm elections in recent political memory and they will essentially dictate how America is to be governed for the next two years. This matters.

This fact was not lost morning’s panel on MSNBC show Morning Joe. If you haven’t seen it already, I heartily recommend you watch it, because the panellists put into context just how important each vote is. Here’s how it went down.

First up was political correspondent Kasie Hunt, best known for her appearances on NBC News. She spoke passionately about how important the female vote will surely turn out to be when the results begin to roll out tonight, and she also picked up on the surprising volume of candidates and key figures in these elections who have never really interacted with the political process before, showing just how pivotal the current moment is in America’s politics.

Next up was political commentator Mike Barnicle, who is a veteran panellist on Morning Joe. He talked about just how important these elections are not just nationally but on the international political stage too. “Literally, the world is watching us today,” he said. He went on to talk about the importance of today’s votes not just on a grand scale but also on a more individual level. Barnicle’s incisive analysis into how these elections are a measure of what American people truly want and how they see themselves is exactly what we needed to hear.

The third panellist to speak out their opinion was Willie Geist, who will also be hosting MSNBC’s coverage of the election results tonight from 2-6am (which you should totally watch, by the way). He pointed out that the Midwestern states “which made Donald Trump president” are the ones to watch tonight, because if they decided to turn away from Trump, that could decide the direction of American politics for a long time to come.

Fourthly, we heard from co-host Mika Brzezinski, who said that she believes the election is about “our sense of humanity, our human decency and our American values. I think they’re all on the ballot today.” That could not be more true.

And finally, tying it all together was Joe Scarborough himself. Here’s what he had to say:

“I’ve always said I have confidence in this country, and I’m optimistic. This Madisonian democracy has checks and balances and the ultimate check is today. This is your chance to put your check on the government. If you like it, great. If you don’t like it, this is your opportunity to not only change the government but change the world. The power is in your hands.”

I couldn’t have put it better myself.
