During an AM Joy segment on President Donald Trump’s Tweets attacking Puerto Rico officials, a GOP strategist bitterly mocked the president for acting like a “valley girl,” constantly whining.
While several left-leaning panelists went after Trump, conservative strategist Evan Siegfried was the most brutal.
“The president is isolated and has an overblown sense of grievance. He feels he needs to be getting credit for things he shouldn’t be getting credit for because he has very few accomplishments,” Siegfried began. “He is becoming isolated and congressional Republicans largely ignore him.”
“He has no real legislative track record, he has only executive orders to show for what he’s done and he has a further divided nation,” he added as he got warmed up.
“At the same time when we look at what he was saying yesterday, it sounds like a valley girl,” he remarked before adopting a teen girl’s voice. “‘Oh, my god, they’re ingrates, why don’t they appreciate me?’ We have a high school girl as president of the United States essentially, who is trying to make it all about him and his ego as opposed to the fact that 5 percent of the people in Puerto Rico don’t have drinkable water. Ninety percent don’t have cell service and only 5 percent have electric power”
“The optics are bad and deservedly so, but it’s now all about how people don’t appreciate the very great things that are going on there,” he concluded in disgust.

‘A truly horrifying pick’: Fury over Trump nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to SCOTUS
President Donald Trump's nomination Saturday of Seventh Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court sparked a chorus of outrage from Democrats and progressive groups who warned her confirmation could shift the court to one that would dismantle the Affordable Care Act and "work to preserve the Trump agenda for decades to come."
38 days until the election, Americans are already casting their ballots, and Republicans are making a blatant power grab.
Chuck Todd shreds GOP senator for making rules ‘out of thin air’: ‘The party looks like a bunch of hypocrites’
Chuck Todd, host of NBC's Meet the Press, on Sunday told Republican Sen. Roy Blunt (MO) that his party "looks like a bunch of hypocrites" because they are set to nominate President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick in an election year.
Following Trump's nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the high court, Todd reminded Blunt that Republicans had blocked former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nomination because it was an election year.
"You have no qualms about doing this before the election?" Todd asked. "You've seen, polling is pretty overwhelming on this issue. A large majority of the American public do not believe this president before the election should make this pick and it should be whoever wins the election."
Tom Cotton cornered by CNN’s Tapper over Trump’s threat to not hand over power if he loses in November
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) was put on the spot on Sunday morning during his appearance on CNN when "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper pressed him over Donald Trump's suggestion he won't peacefully step down if he loses the election.
With Cotton glibly commenting he expected a peaceful transfer of power “in January 2025, after President Trump finishes his second term,” Tapper pressed him about the president's comments.
“You’re not at all disturbed by what he’s saying about if the ballots aren’t counted? " the CNN host asked. "It is really quite alarming to a lot of Republicans his refusal to say, 'of course, if I lose, I will abide by a peaceful transfer of power.'”
