In 2000, Joe Scarborough was a Republican congressman from Florida and went on the House floor to issue a concurrent resolution to condemn the “racist and anti-semitic views of the Reverand Al Sharpton.” Scarborough expressed his concern that Sharpton had “referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘‘bloodsucking Jews’’, and ‘‘Jew bastards’’’
Watch the video here:
Today, Scarborough attacked President Trump for condemning Rev. Al Sharpton and said “they’re really good friends” as well as tweeted about his past feud.
Thanks to those reminding me of how stridently Al Sharpton and I opposed each other 20 years ago. We take pride in our friendship today because of that history, recognizing Jesus’s words that all have fallen short of God’s glory and we should forgive each others 70 x 7 times.
