Megyn Kelly to Joe Scarborough: How Can You Be a Conservative If You’re At War With GOP Icons?
Megyn Kelly tonight took on MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, asking him how he would react to Republicans that think he’s a “faux conservative.”
“We had 10 years of big government Republicanism, and what people found out was after the Bush years that big government Republicanism was as bad as big government liberalism, and I was always critical of the Republican establishment,” Scarborough said.
“How can you be a true conservative if […] you’re at war with so many of the conservative icons?” Kelly asked, citing Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.
Scarborough said he’s not at war with them, and that he has consistently been a small government conservative.
“I’m conservative when Republicans are in the White House. I’m conservative when Democrats are in the White House,” he said.
Kelly also took the opportunity to poke fun at MSNBC's ratings, saying, “You want to see more of Joe, you can join his four viewers.”
Kelly asked Scarborough if he had plans to be in the White House. Hear what he had to say in the video above.
