Scarborough, frightened that even his personal followers wouldn’t need to have their Christmases stolen, assured everybody: “[T]he solely correction I’d make is, he isn’t stealing Christmas.” Nonetheless, except for that one change, the three co-hosts did nothing however reward the premier’s “lovely speech.” Scarborough rationalized each phrase of the sanctimonious lecture, and even hailed it as “an act of affection.”

Co-host Willie Geist small-heartedly agreed, including: “That was fantastically mentioned. Um, it is refreshing. We’ve not had that type of management from the highest in our nation. We’ve had it on the state degree from some governors,” apparently unaware that Premier Brian Pallister is merely the chief of a province, roughly equal to a state governor.

Geist concluded the section by saying that medical doctors who’re telling everybody to remain residence and put on masks try to revive our freedom, and that “the trail to return to normalcy and freedom is to suck it up right here for a few months, and do the issues that medical doctors are asking us to do.”

BRIAN PALLISTER [PREMIER OF MANITOBA]: I’ll do what I imagine is proper, and proper now we have to save lives. In case you do not suppose that COVID’s actual proper now, you are an fool. It’s essential to perceive that we’re all on this collectively. You can’t fail to know this. Keep aside. So I am the man who has to inform you to remain aside at Christmas and within the vacation season you have a good time. Together with your religion or with out your religion. That you just have a good time with [sic] usually with mates and with household, that the place you share recollections and construct recollections. I am that man. And I will say that… as a result of it will maintain you protected. I am the man who’s stealing Christmas to maintain you protected, as a result of you want to do that now. It’s essential to do the suitable factor, as a result of subsequent yr we’ll have heaps to have a good time, and we’ll have a good time this yr if we do the proper factor this yr. You need not like me. I hope in years to return you would possibly respect me for having the guts to inform you the suitable factor. And this is the suitable factor: Keep protected. Defend one another. Love one another. Take care of one another. You bought so some ways to point out that. However do not get collectively this Christmas. 

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Willie, it was—

BRZEZINSKI: Wow.

SCARBOROUGH:—it was a good looking discuss, uh—

WILLIE GEIST: Yeah.

SCARBOROUGH:—to his constituents. It was a good looking speech, the—solely factor that I’d say is, the one correction I’d make is, he isn’t stealing Christmas, uh, he is actually protecting folks aside this Christmas in the event that they’d take heed to him, uh, however he is guaranteeing a more healthy, a greater new yr, and he’s guaranteeing many Christmases to come for many of his constituents. It’s an act of—of duty, and—and sure, I’ll say, uh, it’s—it is an act of affection. 

GEIST: It’s an act of affection, and it is an act of management, which is to say one thing that could be unpopular to a few of the folks you are speaking to, however you understand will assist in the lengthy time period, and can possibly even save them and their members of the family. That was fantastically mentioned. Um, it is refreshing. We’ve not had that type of management from the highest in our nation. We’ve had it on the state degree from some governors, however that was, uh, that was very properly mentioned, and—and the truth of the matter is, now we have folks on this nation, tens of thousands and thousands of them, who’ve been fed a narrative that this is not actual, that this is not as dangerous as it—it seems to be, that medical doctors who’re asking us to remain residence and put on masks try to one way or the other steal our freedom when precisely the other is true. They’re attempting to maintain us protected, and to revive our freedom. Proper now we do not be happy. We really feel like we’re trapped at residence. We really feel like our children can’t go to high school.

SCARBOROUGH: Yeah. A—

BRZEZINSKI: Completely.
