Joe Scarborough: Trump Reminds Me of Fat Bastard from the Austin Powers Movies

‘He’s sniffing and looking around’
By Grabien Staff


SCARBOROUGH: "You know, there were a lot of protests, Trump was sort of walking across the stage, sniffing, you know how he does. breathing it all in. Willie, he sort of — he had this thing down that he’s actually amping up his on-stage performances. He actually reminded me — you see the 'Austin Powers' movies?"
GEIST: "Oh, yeah."
SCARBOROUGH: “Did you see the Austin Powers movies? He reminded me at times of the Fat Bastard, it’s a character. It’s a character in ‘Austin Powers’. And he’s sniffing and looking around, he’s saying, ‘Thank you, thank you.’ I thought he was going to say ‘Get into my stomach’ at one point. He’s just really starting to take on this role of Dear Leader. And you can see it last night more than usual. He’s amping it up. He’s amping his audiences up, amping up his racial attacks and the demagoguery. This is a guy — he is, as David Brooks said this morning in ‘The New York Times,’ he’s a force, and the only way the Democrats are going to beat him is with an equal force.”
