A clearly dismayed conservative commentator lambasted the Trump administration Sunday morning, saying President Donald Trump is in need of “adult supervision” because he clearly can’t get over the fact that he lost the popular vote.
Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, radio host Charlie Sykes unloaded on the Trump administration for offering up top adviser Stephen Miller to four of the Sunday talk shows, calling his combative performance “cringe-worthy.”
“I want to know who will play him on SNL next week,” Sykes said after watching Miller yell at multiple Sunday morning hosts. “What an extraordinary choice by the Trump administration to push Stephen Miller out when they actually do have some credible spokesmen. This was a cringe-worthy performance.”
“Stephen Miller has only one audience,” Sykes continued. “He’s playing to Donald Trump. This is somebody proving that he is the loyalist possible spokesman. But what you have there [in Miller] is you have the intersection of inexperience, incompetence and zealotry, and the fact that he is doubling down on something that is clearly just not true.”
As for the fact that the Trump administration seems to be reeling and is getting bogged down in petty squabbles, Sykes blamed Trump himself.
“They are undermining their own agenda, they have self-inflicted wounds,” Sykes complained. “They distract from it and the only explanation I can come up with is that Donald Trump is obsessed with the fact that he didn’t win the popular vote.”
“There needs to be some sort of adult supervision to say, ‘Move on, Mr. President, you’re the president of the United States and why are you re-litigating this by telling a demonstrable lie over and over and over again and demanding that your staffers basically, you know, throw their credibility into the bonfire, as well?'”

GOP ripped for refusing to remove Trump from office: ‘Folly of that failure becomes clearer by the day’
Republicans seeking to keep control of the United States Senate were harshly criticized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for failing to remove President Donald Trump from office during impeachment.
"For four years now, as both a candidate and president, Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked America’s voting system, falsely claiming voter fraud any time it suited his needs. In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"
Fox News commentator slammed for mocking Joe Biden’s decision to wear a mask
On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.
But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.
