MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Deletes Post After Elon Musk Rebukes Him Over Trump’s “Bloodbath” Remark

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough stirred controversy when he deleted a social media post referencing former President Donald Trump’s “bloodbath” remark, following a response from Elon Musk.

During a Saturday rally in Ohio, Trump warned of a potential “bloodbath” for the country, addressing concerns about job losses in the auto industry under the Biden administration. Scarborough initially posted footage of the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, linking it to Trump’s rhetoric, but later removed the post after Musk’s reply.

In his response, Musk clarified that Trump’s use of “bloodbath” referred to job losses in the auto industry, not the Capitol riot. Trump’s remarks came as he criticized President Biden’s electric vehicle (EV) policies, highlighting concerns about offshoring jobs to countries like Mexico and China.

Trump’s stance resonates with some autoworkers represented by the United Auto Workers (UAW) union, who fear that Biden’s support for EVs could lead to significant job cuts. This tension underscores the broader debate over the future of the auto industry and the impact of EV policies on employment.

The term “bloodbath” has recently been used in media discussions, notably describing changes in leadership and layoffs at the Republican National Committee (RNC). The RNC’s election of Michael Whatley as chairman and the appointment of Lara Trump and Chris LaCivita as co-chairs has signaled a shift in party leadership.
