Frequent Morning Joe guest Noah Rothman gets dragged on Twitter after trying to draw comparisons between Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris with Donald Trump’s “racial agitation.”
On Friday, he took offense to Warren and Harris calling Michael Brown’s police-involved death a “murder” in Ferguson, Missouri.
Let me backtrack…..
During a discussion about conservative journalist Tom Nichols’ op-ed in USA Today, in which he wrote he would vote for any Democratic nominee over Trump, Rothman immediately drew a false equivalency between Warren, Harris and Trump. He claimed that a Warren presidency would be like going from the frying pan into the fire and this is why the Republican Party is doomed.
Nichols said Joe Biden, Warren and Harris “are not dangerous” in the same way as Trump. “I agree, but verging on rank racial agitation is precisely the biggest problem I have with this president,” Rothman said.
A shocked Joe Scarborough help up his hands and responded, “I mean, I’m sorry. The false equivalency there is breathtaking.”
Well, let’s just say he’s getting mercilessly dragged, with many calling for MSNBC to drop him from their network. This isn’t the first time he’s been called out. Tiffany Cross dismantled him when he tried to talk about white victimhood and social grievance.
Reaction on Twitter, including my own:
Noah Rothman is on #MorningJoe getting shut down over his false equivalency about Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris being comparable to #DonaldTrump in terms of some comments. Um, he needs another smackdown from @TiffanyDCross

I🤮 listening to Noah Rothman. It’s mind-boggling how many of these false equivalency people still exist. If he can’t see that Trump is destroying Democratic norms and sullying the office of the presidency then he’s too stupid to be on #morningjoe

Noah Rothman is Tucker Carlson 10 years ago just before he was fully radicalized.

We have Trump because people like Noah Rothman were unable to see beyond their limited conservative vision and were willing/are willing to excuse bad behavior and bad policy simply bc it fits into their own narrow world view. It’s unhealthy for America.

@Morning_Joe once again I had to turn you off. The insufferable Noah Rothman needs to shut the F Up. Why do you book this creep? I was enjoying your conversation with Tom Nichols and WHAM The Moron's Buddy puts in his worthless 2 cents. Turned on a cooking show.
