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.”

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter
President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.
One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.
State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."
The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
Tongue-tied GOP strategist crashes and burns on-air while trying to deny Trump’s racism
Republican strategist Amy Tarkanian crashed and burned on CNN on Saturday while attempting to deny President Donald Trump's racism.
"I do not believe that the president’s tweets were racist. I do believe they were not well thought out. He needs that extra, 'Are you sure?' button on Twitter," Tarkanian argued.
"I'm a black man, I'm a Republican and a black man," the Rev. Joe Watkins interjected. "My mother's an immigrant, I would be angry if someone said that to my mother."
"Oh, it’s very offensive. But he did not say, because you are this color, go back to where you came from," Tarkanian argued. "I’m not supporting that tweet. Was it racist? No. Was it stupid? Yes."
Trump supporter blames Democrats for being targeted by the president: ‘Why is that racist?’
CNN interviewed a supporter of President Donald Trump in Eau Claire, Wisconsin who refused to acknowledge the racism in the president's "Go Back" attacks on four women of color in Congress.
The network interviewed Kerri Krumenauer of Wiersgalla Plumbing & Heating Company about Trump's attacks.
"How is it racist?" she asked.
"If you don't like this country, get out," she demanded. "Leave!"
She then showed how misinformed she was about the incident.
"He didn't use any names -- they stood up," she falsely claimed. In fact, Trump did use names and the targets did not stand up as they were not at his North Carolina campaign rally.
