Former Congressman David Jolly (R-FL) broke down the chaos inside the White House on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House Tuesday.
The segment began with host Nicolle Wallace revealing her personal frustration with covering President Donald Trump.
“I think it’s when we take him on the air in our hour and I stare at it and I know we have to come out and say something, but I wish that what we could come out and do is just call B.S. on him,” Wallace admitted.
“Listen, the president’s most authentic moments are when he’s lying,” Rep. Jolly suggested. “He misled the American people on Russia, on North Korea, and White House personnel.”
“Bob Mueller is at his doorstep and he doesn’t know what to do about it when it comes to Russia,” Jolly noted. “When it come to personnel, this is somebody who hired somebody off of The Apprentice, Hope Jicks was an unqualified communications director from the fashion industry, you have a chief of staff who made a deal with the devil … and a son-in-law and a daughter who are completely unqualified to do their work.”
“Other than that…” Wallace interjected, with a laugh.
“There are no systems, there’s just a president on Twitter. It’s not a real White House,” concluded Wallace, who served as communications director for President George W. Bush.
“As a result of a lot of factors, I would say we’ve never seen a Republican majority on Capitol Hill less prepared to govern in the shadow of Donald Trump either,” the former GOP congressman concluded.
