The anti-GOP griping known as the January 6 Committee continued on Tuesday and this allowed the hosts of Morning Joe to trash all Republicans. They used the desperate grab for attention by Republican Senate candidate Eric Greitens as a way of trashing all Republicans and defending Democrats as the defenders of democracy. 

For context, Greitens thought that it would be a good idea to promote his candidacy by depicting himself going into a house armed with a gun and other men in tactical armor. You see, he was “RINO hunting.”  You can make your own conclusion as to the logic of that idea. 

As always, co-host Joe Scarborough led the conversations by calling on Republicans to stop this apparent rise of “fascism” before it got worse. Associate editor for The Washington Post Eugene Robinson took it up a level higher by stating: “Yeah, Benito Mussolini would be proud.” He even added that “-- this is not a legitimate political discourse, as the Republican Party might call it.”
