MSNBC's Joe Scarborough is flabbergasted about why President Joe Biden seems to be "stumbling and bumbling" through his response to questions about mishandling classified documents.

Scarborough said, “What’s going on here? The stumbling and bumbling around over the past month or so has been pretty extraordinary since November when they first started discovering these documents."

He argued that Biden's situation was different from Trump's because Biden reported the find right away, ignoring the fact that it wasn't reported publicly for two months and that Trump has maintained that he declassified the documents before removing them.

"And yet Biden’s own worst enemy has been the way Biden’s staff and the way the Biden team has run this. What’s going on?" he wondered.

He added, “It’s the drip, drip, drip that’s the problem right now. It’s a story they can’t totally seem to get their arms around.”

He said that the unknown of whether more documents would be found was the biggest problem, and he concluded, "They need to clean this up. They need to get, you know, amateur hour is over. They need complete transparency, and they just mishandled it from day one.”
