‘He wasn’t that bad then’: Former Trump Org insider recalls when Trump shifted to become ‘a joke’ and ‘a cartoon’
Former Trump Organization insider Barbara Res recalled a time she worked with President Donald Trump when he "wasn't that bad."
MSNBC host Ari Melber began the segment by calling Trump a "snowflake" for getting mad with Denmark for calling his idea of purchasing Greenland "absurd."
"Let's just deal with this real quick. We know it's how he operates: Attack, troll, mock, bully and indignantly complain other people are bullying him," Melber noted. He then welcomed Res to discuss what is happening in Trump's brain.
He asked Res if anything could become an important issue to Trump if it wounds him enough. "Is he a snowflake?"
Rudy Giuliani sneaked off to meet Ukrainian officials in Madrid about Biden conspiracy theories: report
On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani secretly traveled to Madrid in recent weeks to meet with a top aide of new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to go fishing for dirt on Democrats.
One of the key focuses of Giuliani's phone calls and in-person meetings was to try to dig up evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden acted improperly to remove a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating an energy company his son was invested in — which has been broadly discredited as conspiracy theories. He also tried to hunt for proof that Ukrainian officials colluded with Democrats to hurt Trump's campaign in 2016, a claim which is not supported by evidence.
At least eight prison officials knew Epstein wasn’t supposed to be left alone — but they did it anyway: report
On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that at least eight staffers at the Bureau of Prisons were aware that arrested hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein could be a risk to himself if left unsupervised — raising further questions about why exactly guards left him to his own devices on the night that he allegedly hanged himself.
Investigators reportedly believe that at least some of these officials were aware that he had been left alone. It is unclear why nobody intervened, and the Justice Department is continuing with its investigation. Attorney General William Barr recently ordered the removal of the acting director of the Bureau of Prisons.
