On Friday morning, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, host of Morning Joe, blasted Republicans for focusing on the wrong issues in their efforts to reassemble a coalition of voters that can win national elections. He told his fellow co-hosts that the party leaders know but will not say that it is conservatives on talk radio and on cable news that communicate a message to voters which suggests “if you’re not white, you’re really not welcome in this party.”
In a discussion of what problems the GOP faces with the Morning Joe panel guests, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts said he did not appreciate Republican Party spokesman Sean Spicer congratulating him on his recent wedding to his husband. He said it made no sense to him because the party opted to put a clause in its platform opposing same-sex marriage.
“So it’s odd because then they’ll go out and drum beat that they’re against marriage equality,” Roberts said.
Scarborough said that Republicans are overly antagonistic to members of the LGBT community who care about gay marriage, or Latinos who care about immigration issues, or African-Americans who care about discrimination issues.
