<p>On Thursday’s <em>Morning Joe</em>, the show’s liberal panelists were still reeling from the aftermath of President Trump’s speech yesterday publicly pledging to uphold Jerusalem’s status as the capital of Israel. MSNBC’s morning pundits were not upset at the violent protests being orchestrated by Palestinian authorities though. Instead, they blamed Trump for “setting the Middle East on fire.” Host Joe Scarborough was especially mad at Trump, pounding his fists on the news desk as he complained that Trump’s decision had now prevented Hamas, the terrorist Palestinian political party that rules the Gaza Strip, from becoming “more mainstream so we can bring peace to the region.”</p>
