Now we’ve officially heard it all. On Thursday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough revealed that he doesn’t think President Donald Trump knows how to read. However, POTUS was quick to prove Scarborough wrong using one perfect item.
In a Thursday op-ed for The Washington Post, Scarborough touted the salacious new book “Fire and Fury” while telling the story of the time in 2015 when, after one of the primary debates, he asked then-candidate Donald Trump if he could read. Yes, Scarborough actually questioned whether a man who has been at the helm of multiple billion-dollar businesses knows how to read.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough once asked President Donald Trump if he knew how to read after a GOP primary debate in 2015, and Trump responded by pulling out his Bible.

Obviously, Trump was taken aback by this ludicrous accusation. However, he had the perfect comeback. Without skipping a beat, the billionaire businessman whipped out his family bible, informing Scarborough that it was given to him by his mother and that he reads it all the time.
To a liberal heathen like Joe Scarborough, the sight of a bible in the hands of a man whom he despises was likely too much to bear.
“Mika Brzezinski and I had a tense meeting with Trump following what I considered to be a bumbling debate performance in September 2015. I asked the candidate a blunt question: Can you read,” Scarborough writes. He claims there was an “awkward silence” and [he] said, “I’m serious, Donald. Do you read? If someone wrote you a one-page paper on a policy, could you read it?”
Trump then calmly said he could read and held up a Bible gifted to him by his mother and claimed to read it “all the time.”

Scarborough closes his dramatic op-ed by writing, “We are a nation that spent the past 100 years inventing the modern age, winning World War I, defeating Hitler and winning World War II, and liberating half of Europe by beating the Soviets in the Cold War.”
He continued, “But today we find ourselves dangerously adrift at home and disconnected from the allies abroad that made so many of those triumphs possible,” adding, “The world wonders how the United States will survive Donald Trump. And I ask, what will finally move Republicans to deliver a non-negotiable ultimatum to this unstable president?”
His fear-mongering didn’t end there, either. “Will they dare place their country’s interests above their own political fears?” Scarborough asks. “Or will they move to end this American tragedy only when there is nothing left to lose?”
This is pretty pathetic. At a loss for legitimate issues to take up with the president, Scarborough has resorted to claiming that the leader of the free world cannot read.
Of course, that is absolutely ludicrous, as we all witness Trump reading on a daily basis. Take, for example, the teleprompters he utilizes during prepared remarks. Newsflash: He’s reading from them.
And then, there’s the president’s Twitter page, which the media loathes so much. How do they suppose Trump writes his social media updates to the American people if he is, in fact, illiterate? The left will say anything to further their agenda, and anyone who actually believes their crap anymore is certifiable.
