Scarborough On New NRA Ad Politicizing Protection For Obama's Kids: "This Extremism Is So Frightening And Over The Line"

Blog ››› ››› REMINGTON SHEPARD

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough strongly criticized a recent National Rifle Association advertisement that politicized the security of President Obama's children.

The NRA ad called Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for allowing for his children to be guarded by armed Secret Service agents while not immediately endorsing the NRA's call for armed guards in every school.

Scarborough, who as a Congressman was a strong supporter of the NRA, responded to the ad, asking "what's wrong with these people?" He continued, pointing out that once Obama decided to run for president, his children "have targets on their backs." Scarborough also said that the NRA is now a "fringe organization with millions of mainstream members." He concluded by saying the ad was "frightening and over the line."
