Joe Scarborough’s Friday morning analogy to explain the ways President Donald Trump is utilizing to argue for his promised U.S.-Mexico border wall was sufficient to place viewers off their breakfast.
The host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” mentioned Trump “failed traditionally” in his bid to scare voters forward of the 2018 midterms with fearmongering discuss of harmful caravans of migrants heading towards the U.S.
And he likened Trump’s present doubling down on that rhetoric, in his try and safe funding from Congress for the wall, to when Coca-Cola unsuccessfully tried to introduce a brand new recipe for its common tender drink in 1985 in what’s now known as New Coke debacle.
“Besides now we’re shifting from New Coke,” Scarborough defined. “It might be as if the board of administrators in Atlanta, Georgia, for Coca-Cola mentioned, and forgive me for saying it this morning, ‘Hey, you understand what, New Coke didn’t work, so we’re going so as to add cat urine to it.’”
