Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein fears for President Donald Trump’s “stability” and thinks it is the most important piece of the political puzzle right now. It’s prompting many who once supported Trump to
“There is another much more dangerous,” Bernstein began. “I’m not talking about obstruction of justice and people around and in the FBI that I have talked to would say there has been every effort made to impede the investigation. But more important than this, we are hearing from conservative and Republican commentators in the press, Jonah Goldberg, Charles Krauthammer and others questioning the stability of the president of the United States. This is unheard of.”
Bernstein compared the “freak out” to the Watergate days when he said the GOP was heroic in the way that they demanded accountability.
“They investigated and investigated and voted for his impeachment because they were willing to see the truth served,” he continued. “We have not seen something similar from the Republicans thus far. Maybe we will but what we are hearing in private from many people on Capitol Hill, congressmen, senators, they doubt the stability, honesty and fitness for office of this president of the United States. That’s become part of the story for the press. … We would have a different kind of dynamic. Richard Nixon was a criminal president. Donald Trump is a president with whom there is a grave question about his fitness and ability to conduct the office of the presidency. That’s going hand in hand with the possible cover-up into collusion with a foreign power.”
Bernstein went on to say that many have talked to Republican leaders on Capitol Hill who not only question the stability but outright “doubt the stability.”
“In the last week, it has really been demonstrated, it’s part of the story and it is very hard to cover, it’s a different dynamic than we have ever had to deal with before,” Bernstein said. “But the tweets that the president of the United States have been making are a roadmap of his mind. That roadmap takes very crooked corners.”

John Oliver unleashes epic supercut of Fox News host who can’t stop bragging about learning German in high school
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade took German as his foreign language in high school. If you didn't know that, then you likely don't watch Fox News, because the host has made a claim several dozen times.
HBO host John Oliver spent a few moments out of his Sunday episode of "Last Week Tonight" to mock Kilmeade for his desire to remind people of his three years of classes frequently.
Kilmeade has talked about it so many times that his co-hosts began preempting his comment every time the country of Germany is mentioned, or the German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears on the screen.
Watch the hilarious mockery below:
Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats
One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.
According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."
Trump will go far-right in 2020 election because he thinks that’s why the GOP lost in 2018
An MSNBC panel speculated that one of the things President Donald Trump will do when he announces his reelection campaign this week is run a rerun of 2016. The reason, the panel explained, is he thinks it's the one thing that has worked for him.
Sunday, it was announced that Trump was so furious with his lousy poll numbers that he fired the team of pollsters. Trump apologists claimed that the anger had more to do with the leak of the poll numbers to the public.
Either way, Trump is in trouble, whether he's willing to admit it or not. But his solution is characteristically "Trump."
