Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) campaign manager Steve Schmidt is disgusted by what he sees happening in the White House.


“This White House has been in a state of meltdown for some time,” Schmidt said during a Thursday episode of "Deadline" on MSNBC. “And it seems that the events that are occurring last week, this week are just simply overwhelming it.”

The normally calm Schmidt, went off on the disasters coming out of the president's Oval Office.

“Look, no doubt this White House has been in a state of meltdown for some time,” Schmidt said. “And it seems that the events that are occurring last week, this week are just simply overwhelming it.”

He pointed to the leaked transcripts of the calls with foreign leaders as a weakness. Democrats have pointed to the leaks as an example that Trump doesn't control his own office. Schmidt referred to the language itself, saying that he sees weakness and a "whiney ... level of unpreparedness" to approach them on behalf of America.

"The totality of all of this is it makes the world more dangerous and it makes the world more unstable," he continued. "And that's the big take away from this week is the degree to which when you put it all together, he is fueling instability. And I don't know what day it will be and I don't know what hour in that day, but we'll pay a price for that at some hour soon in this country. This is serious business. That's a building where life and death decisions get made, and these people couldn't be more out matched in dealing with this stuff."
