Morning Joe Slams Democrats for Not Having a ‘Unifying Message’: ‘What Has Happened to This Party?’


The panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" castigated the Democratic Party on Thursday for not having a "unifying message," wondering how Democrats got to this point.

"Where are the Democrats in all this?" co-host Mika Brzezinski asked after trashing President Donald Trump.

"What has happened to this party?" co-host Joe Scarborough added.

"Right now they're on Martha's Vineyard," historian Jon Meacham said.

After mentioning some of the problems the Democrats are facing right now, Scarborough said their biggest problem is not having a unifying message to bring the party and the American people together. Scarborough also said that he has been called a "racist" when he mentioned this point.

Radio host Charlie Sykes then took a shot at Hillary Clinton and the Democrats' handling of the 2016 campaign.

"Well, the good news is that Hillary Clinton is finally coming to Wisconsin on her book tour," Sykes said sarcastically. "But at least she found Wisconsin, at least she was able to find the upper Midwest."

Clinton was criticized for not visiting Wisconsin once during the 2016 presidential campaign. She will visit the state to promote her new book in November, one year after the election.

Wisconsin voted Republican for the first time since 1984, helping Trump win the presidency.

Sykes then concluded that the problem with the Democratic Party is that its leaders are trying to exclude centrists by going with far-left policies. Scarborough then mentioned how former Vice President Joe Biden said that centrists could not be excluded from the party if Democrats expect to win elections.

"Hillary Clinton does not energize the same base," Scarborough said.

"What a surprise," Sykes responded.
