“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough said Monday that Washington, D.C., “would be melting down” if the suspect in the Texas church shooting had been “named Muhammad.”
“And now we have Southern Baptist churches getting shot up,” Scarborough said.
“Again, had it been a radical Islamic terrorist with a beard named Muhammad, Washington would be melting down right now.”
Scarborough during his show criticized what he described as a lack of response and action in the wake of shootings in the United States.
“We wouldn’t put up with this with any other epidemic. We would not — if this were terrorism, Islamic, radical terrorism, again, Washington would be on fire this morning,” Scarborough said.[contentcards url=”http://thehill.com/homenews/media/358914-scarborough-washington-would-be-melting-down-if-texas-shooter-were-named” target=”_blank”]
