‘We have them outnumbered’: Morning Joe explains why Trump’s ‘vile’ tweets don’t work on most people

"This is a president who has been from the very beginning of this crisis has been frustrated and angry this has happened to him, and ill-prepared," Lemire said. "He was going into this year expecting to run for re-election on the back of a strong economy against what he thought would be a weak Democratic foe, and that all went away."
