MSNBC’s Host of “Morning Joe” Joe Scarborough, caused many people to use the #walkaway hashtag on Twitter.
Scarborough wrote an article attacking President Donald Trump using the title “Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could” with a picture of the fallen World Trade Towers attached.
His Twitter account stated: “My Latest—> Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could.”
Scarborough disrespected many people, especially those who knew someone that perished in the terrorist attack that killed nearly 3000 people.
The hashtag #walkaway was linked to @JoeNBC all over Twitter.
Proud Democrat all my life. Big fan of yours . Both of those stop today. You disgraced all who died and a country that still suffers today. Trump's not perfect but Congrats, you just sunk to an all new low. Thanks for helping me decide to #WalkAway @usminority @DNC

How dare you! I lost my fire fighter Uncle who ran into the burning building to save women from being obliterated. & Donald Trump contributed to the after math of that tragic event. He helped me and my family get thru those times. You should be ashamed of yourself. #Walkaway

I was not a Trump supporter until people like you start saying shit that is so unhelpful unhealthy, and being so ugly, makes me sick I was watching you. You made me #WalkAway

Joe Scarborough tried to defend his article after receiving backlash on Twitter.
The column was focused on 17 years of strategic missteps. The last paragraph became the sole focus of Trump supporters. On every other day of the year, I do not shy away from negative feedback from the right, the left or from Trump supporters.
