Hide Your Blenders: MSNBC Host Roasts Jim Comey Conspiracy Theorists
By Natalie Daher
Morning Joe said blenders are unsafe for people who believe James Comey conspired against Donald Trump.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough condemned the use of blenders or any sharp appliances like egg beaters, conservative website The Daily Caller noted, as Comey, former FBI director who Trump fired last year, begins touring for his new book "A Higher Loyalty." Scarborough added that Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. election in part resulted from Comey’s announcement that the FBI was investigating Clinton’s emails only a week before the election.
The Morning Joe segment followed Comey’s Sunday appearance on ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, where Comey called Trump “morally unfit” to be president. Trump has responded on Twitter, calling Comey “slippery” and trashing his legacy as FBI Director.
The latest media craze around Comey, who was instrumental in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, arises as the investigations continue to become more complicated.
On MSNBC, the alarm over blenders continued:
“Anything sharp because you will hurt yourself because you are too incompetent actually to use any basic household appliances,” Scarborough added. “Let me state again the president of the United States won in large part because of James Comey.”
