TAKE TWO! Joe Scarborough: ‘I should have shown more care’ on tweet and headline and column saying Trump more ‘damaging’ than the 9/11 terrorists

Earlier we told you about this garbage tweet from Joe Scarborough where he said President Trump “is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could”:

My Latest—> Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could. https://t.co/DEnYurEFmW

Scarborough came under immediate criticism over it, and he’s now rethinking what he wrote. Kind of. Because, you see, it’s our fault for taking his tweet seriously and not analyzing his entire op-ed:

Jeryl, you’re a great example for all of us—especially me today. Many have been offended by a tweet I sent out earlier re: my @washingtonpost article. Even if they did not read the article, I should have shown more care on the tweet’s wording and the column’s conclusion. https://t.co/A7zJR38JiC

And if you did read the entire op-ed and still don’t like it, it’s still your fault for just focusing on his tweet, the op-ed’s title and his “last paragraph”:

The column was focused on 17 years of strategic missteps. The last paragraph became the sole focus of Trump supporters. On every other day of the year, I do not shy away from negative feedback from the right, the left or from Trump supporters.

Nearly 3000 people died on 9/11, we still have troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he thinks the problem is his wording and that he can figure out a way to spin the “same thing” into something not offensive? We eagerly await this trick:

On September 11th, I’ll read the column again and think about whether I could have said the same thing in a way less offensive to Trump supporters on September 11th.
