MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said Friday that Republicans “don’t care about cop killers.” The observation came in the context of party members blindly following Donald Trump, who also, one presumes, is also indifferent to the killing of police in Scarborough’s opinion.

Here’s the complete comment, which begins at 1:08 in the video that follows:

Republicans … really don’t care what the facts are. They don’t care about the cop killers. They don’t care about how many died. They’re just, they’re going to follow Donald Trump, and those conspiracy theories and those facts no matter what.

This view is breathtaking coming as it does from someone with Scarborough’s far-left ideology. For one thing, it is built on a misconception exposed in a tweet thread by conservative blogger Matt Walsh:

Walsh continues scrutinizing each allegation made by the Left about the casualties that occurred on Jan. 6, finally concluding:

But Scarborough’s far more egregious sin is one of the pot calling the kettle black. Namely, a search for the string “David Dorn and Joe Scarborough” and variations thereof comes up empty. Who is David Dorn? He was a beloved retired police captain who was shot to death in St. Louis on June 2, 2020 by one of the “peaceful protesters” demonstrating over the death of George Floyd.

Here is Stephan Cannon, the man charged with Dorn’s murder:

And this is David Dorn, a husband and father:

As far as I am to discern, Joe Scarborough never once mentioned David Dorn or the cop killer who senselessly ended his life. And yet here he is, lecturing Republicans for not their indifference to cop killers.
