Scarborough: If Trump Defies The Courts, He Will Be Impeached

If President Trump decides to impose his immigration order despite two federal courts having blocked the action, he could be in danger of being kicked out of office, according to Joe Scarborough.

The host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host predicted Monday that there could be “impeachment proceedings within the next six months.” Newsmax noted that Scarborough was reacting to White House Policy Adviser Stephen Miller, who advocated defying the courts and reinstating the temporary ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries. The Jan. 27 executive order also called for turning away Syrian war refugees indefinitely and other refugees temporarily. A judge issued a temporary stay the following day.

Miller declared Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that the “judiciary is not supreme, and that the judges assumed “power for themselves that belong squarely’ with the government’s executive branch. “The end result of this, though, is that our opponent, the media, and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned,” the adviser said. “And the bottom line is the president's powers in this area represent the apex of executive authority.”

Scarborough rejected the argument, claiming that “Donald Trump would be impeached if they did not adhere to what the courts were saying.” The host suggested that Miller is “just dumb,” adding: “Maybe he is ignorant and maybe I shouldn't be so tough on him. That is the worst performance of anybody. That made Susan Rice, the Sunday after Benghazi, look smooth. That was horrendous and an embarrassment.”

Addressing his remarks to Miller, Scarborough advised: “You really need to go back and read the Constitution and, seriously, the White House has got to stop embarrassing themselves by putting this guy up.”

Threatening to ignore court edicts “is the talk of a dictator and not somebody who is president of the United States,” Scarborough said. “I would hope the president of the United States would … read the United States Constitution.”
