MSNBC's Morning Joe spent a large portion of its Friday broadcast attempting to goad the President into taking action on gun control by calling Trump a 'coward' and a 'small man' who could 'become a hero' if he enables strict gun laws.
Joe Scarborough accused Trump and the GOP of doing "nothing to protect Americans from future killings," claiming that "They hide behind the lie that Americans have a constitutional right to own a military-style weapon."
"We know this is going to happen again!" Scarborough said. "Donald Trump knew this day was coming. Donald Trump knows another school shooting is coming. Donald Trump snows another church shooting is coming. More Christians will be gunned down in churches in middle America. More country music fans will be gunned down at concerts across America."
Scarborough's guest Donny Deutsche openly suggested that Trump could be manipulated into acting on gun control.
"If you think about what drives him, what motivates him more than anything is to be the ultimate hero, to be the ultimate contrarian." Deutsche stated.
