A GOP consultant admitted defeat over being represented by President Donald Trump on MSNBC Sunday morning, saying the president’s antics makes Republicans look like idiots.
Appearing on AM Joy with host Joy Reid, strategist Christopher Metzler was put in the position of defending Trump after the president tweeted a doctored animated gif of him hitting a golf ball that smacks Hillary Clinton in the back and knocks her down.
“Chris, you’re a Republican strategist so I’m going to have to get you to explain,” Reid began. “Donald Trump is up early in the morning retweeting and tweeting out memes and gifs, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Do Republicans at this point just tune it out? Do they just not care anymore?”
“Yeah, I think Republicans, in fact, do tune it out,” he admitted before addling, “They don’t actually care.”
He then got down to the crux of the matter for the party he works for.
“The problem is for Republicans,” he continued before wryly adding, “it starts to make us look like, oh, I don’t know, a band of idiots.”

WATCH: Trump apologist goes down in flames when he claims Democrats don’t get attacked like Trump
Former White House advisor Matt Mowers went down in flames trying to claim Democrats call everyone a racist when they don't agree with them. He had to go back 15 years to find an example, but still never fully explained what the example was.
In a panel discussion with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, Mowers employed the "what about" strategy, spinning the idea that Trump's racist remarks were justified because Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) used an anti-Semitic trope. To be fair, Omar apologized and met with community leaders and officials to better understand anti-Semitism. Trump can't even admit when he did something wrong, much less racist.
Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist
Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.
"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'
One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
