Trump biographer blasts White House ‘clown rodeo’: Tillerson fired for speaking ‘candidly about Russia’

Published

on

A Trump biographer said the firing of Rex Tillerson was another example of the former reality TV star’s chaotic management style — and he warned things would only get worse.

Tim O’Brien, the author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald and executive editor at Bloomberg, told MSNBC that he believes the secretary of state was fired for calling out the Kremlin in the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain.

“I think the lesson from Rex Tillerson’s departure is if you want to keep your job in the White House, don’t speak candidly about Russia,” O’Brien said. “Yesterday Sarah Sanders went out of her way to avoid honestly answering questions based off the fact pattern about Russia’s involvement with the murder of a former Soviet spy in London, and on the same day Tillerson speaks candidly about what — which he rarely does about these issues — and the next day he’s axed. Sarah Sanders is still there, Rex Tillerson is gone.”

He said the White House would continue to lurch from controversy to controversy as long as Trump was in charge.

“This White House is being managed like a clown rodeo,” O’Brien said. “Politics aside, partisan politics aside, you can’t manage the federal government, the business campaign, your family life, when everyone around you is constantly getting axed. And it’s also notable that the two most notorious layoffs of the Trump administration, Jim Comey and Rex Tillerson appeared when both of them were out of town. That’s a lack of courage in leadership. If you’re going to dismiss somebody, dismiss them to their face.”

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."

President Donald Trump's COVID-19 Road Show is off to another super-spreading extravaganza this weekend as the campaign heads to New Hampshire.

During her final commentary Thursday, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow recalled that Tulsa, Oklahoma did everything they could to try and keep people safe while waiting for the Trump rally and during the event. The Bank of Oklahoma Center, where the rally was held, purchased stickers that said not to sit on specific seats to keep people physically distant. Trump's team told the BOK Center to remove them.

"It was the most space anywhere in America since the coronavirus crisis began," said Maddow.
