MSNBC host Joe Scarborough lashed out at conservatives who have been calling former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush a "RINO" (Republican In Name Only) for his recent critical comments about the Republican Party, telling them to "shut the hell up" and "stay in your mother's basement" and "eat your Cheetos."
Bush has been quoted extensively in recent days calling the current GOP "short-sighted" and charging that his father or Ronald Reagan would have been rejected for "finding some degree of common ground."
"Jeb Bush’s Republican Party is the party of the future," Scarborough said on "Morning Joe" Tuesday. "Joe Scarborough’s Republican Party is the future of the Republican Party. You know, I’ve had people come up to me hysterically over the past couple of years, screaming and yelling. And I say put your hair out. I guarantee my way forward is the future, not yours. Your Republican Party is in the past, my Republican Party is the future."
He continued, saying "his" GOP is going to take care of long-term debt, be responsible on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, hold government accountable and try to keep taxes low.
"You know, you can go online and act like a jackass and say what you want to say. And now everybody is calling Jeb Bush a RINO. Just shut the hell up," Scarborough said. "You can stay in your mother’s basement, you can eat your Cheetos, you can type on your dinty laptop, you can do that, that’s all you got."
"But you are not the future of the Republican Party, so just keep screaming at your walls downstairs, your day is done."
