D.L. Hughley goes off on Trump’s ‘ridiculous’ staff hires: ‘He has wife beaters — why not a drug dealer?’

Political commentator and comedian D.L. Hughley slammed President Donald Trump during a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House.

Host Nicole Wallace noted the latest reports that White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson prescribed a “large supply of Percocet” to a White House staffer.

“He has wife beaters, he had people that abused women on his staff, why not a drug dealer?” Hughley asked. “I mean, like literally.”

“The serious part of your point is they don’t vet anyone,” Wallace interjected.

“Here’s the serious part of my point,” Hughley continued. “Two weeks ago we had a president saying we will — we should, put drug dealers to death.”

“It’s a good thing he didn’t, because he’d be short a doctor,” he suggested. “It’s ridiculous.”

“If you told Donald Trump his lawn looked nice, he would make you Secretary of the Interior,” Hughley predicted. “It’s ridiculous that we’re running a country like it is — like it’s ‘The Apprentice.’ He doesn’t vet anybody.”

“That’s how he’s doing it,” Wallace agreed.

“I watched him build a temporary monument to the people, to the victims of the opioid crisis,” Hughley noted. “You know what black people, what people on crack, got build for them? Prisons.”

Hughley also criticized President Trump for allegedly not practicing safe sex.

“I watched Stormy Daniels say the President of the United States had unprotected sex with her,” Hughley noted. “If you’re a 60-year-old man and you don’t care about gonorrhea, how can you worry about North Korea?”

“That’s the most disturbing part of that story? Not getting spanked by the magazine?” Wallace asked.

“You’re 60 years old and you’re playing craps with your sexual organs?” Hughley replied. “That’s a mistake young football players make!”

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
