Tuesday night, Democrat Jon Ossoff got some bad news. He had lost the election in Georgia's Sixth District to Republican Karen Handel, despite spending around $30 million on the campaign trail.

Wednesday morning, Joe Scarborough had little sympathy for Ossoff or the Democratic party, which has now gone 0-4 during the special election cycle:

"This should be a wake-up call for the Democratic party who has been doing nothing but losing since 2010 in these legislative races.

And at some point, you know, I heard last night Ossoff say we started something great. No, you lost. At some point the time for moral victories is over and sometimes winning is just about winning. They need to learn from this and figure out how to win next year."

Scarborough was not afraid to tell it like it is:

“As we've said all along, all the chips were pushed to the middle of the table here. This was a winner-take-all, and it was a huge win for Republicans and a big loss for Democrats.”

Not only that, he went off on Twitter once the numbers began to swing heavily toward a win for Handel:

Scarborough, who has been very critical of Trump and the Republicans so far this year, had some insight about what Democrats can do going forward: Treating their loss as some sort of moral victory won't help them in 2018.
