House Armed Services Committee member Rep Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) couldn’t help but call out President Donald Trump’s recent claim that the investigation into possible Russian collusion by special counsel Robert Mueller was a hoax.
In an interview with SiriusXM radio host Dean Obeidallah, Gallego blasted the president saying, “The only hoax is this whole administration.”
He went on to note that it was made obvious that Trump fired former FBI director James Comey because of the Russia investigation. Trump confessed to as much in his interview last year with NBC News’ Lestor Holt.
“He [Trump] begged Russia to hack on live TV. This guy is delusional if he doesn’t understand what is in front of him,” Gallego continued.”
To make matters worse, the Arizona congressman said that Trump has spent his life surrounded by people who confirm his own delusions.
“He’s used to lying and people believing it and not ever contesting it,” he continued. “That’s why he doesn’t take press conferences because if he takes a press conference he will be confronted by the truth.
Gallego thinks that Trump is looking for respect from anyone and everyone.
“He has such a small personality for such a tall guy. He’s looking for respect he’s never going to find,” Gallego continued.
