Post-debate and opening Monday morning, Mika Brzezinski explained on “Morning Joe” that she couldn’t understand why suddenly Republicans are pulling their support from their presidential nominee, Donald Trump.
Thus far, they’ve ignored the racism, xenophobia, the constant lies, thousands of lawsuits, bullying behavior, offensive tweets, the constant theme of misogyny, support from white nationalists and more but only now are Republicans beginning to pull their support. At the same time, they’re clutching their pearls with surprise as if this is a new occurrence.
“I just don’t understand why any of the people who are denouncing Donald Trump vehemently pulling their support are shocked now,” she said. “What I mean, those statements were horrible, there are many more available to you.”
“This is the same man who said he wanted to have sex with a dead princess because he liked her skin. Are you really shocked?” said co-host Joe Scarborough, his voice rising. “I mean, come on! Who could be shocked!”
Panelist Nicolle Wallace pointed out that the #NeverTrump people always knew about this and many were opposed as a result.
“Do a little googling,” Mika suggested. “This guy, says a lot of things like that. He gets people to laugh and he gets effect.” Wallace seemed to indicate she had never heard these things come out of Trump before. “You didn’t hear him say those things in New Hampshire? Were you asleep!?” Brzezinski exclaimed.
Scarborough tried to cut in, but Brzezinski persisted. “If I could just finish what I was saying because you do need to actually google him, okay,” she said before turning to the camera. “And so do key Republicans who endorsed him and then pulled their endorsements last night, like you were so shocked and appalled. This is what put you over the edge?! This!? You’re pathetic, you’re weak, you’re spineless. And now you’re going to have to come back, potentially.”
She then turned back to Wallace, “But, what I wanted to say is, I was horrified,” Scarborough began to chuckle. “Well, I mean, to be shocked, as if this is the first thing he’s said. Please.”

‘A profound emoluments clause violation’: Andrew Napolitano slams Trump’s hosting the G7 at Doral

Modi tells Xi summit will launch ‘new era’ for India and China
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.
Modi and Xi strolled along a pristine Bay of Bengal beach and held one-on-one talks overlooking the ocean before their delegations sat down to official negotiations at the historic resort town of Mahbalipuram, south of Chennai.
The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
