Appearing on MSNBC Sunday afternoon, GOP strategist Susan Del Percio once again lamented President Donald Trump’s destructive Twitter habits which shape the day’s news when there are more important topics that need to be addressed.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Del Percio was asked about Trump losing the press narrative to Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels.
“Wouldn’t it be nice if it was unavoidable for a president to get out of the way of sex, politics, and money?” Witt asked.
“I was just going to follow up on that,” Del Percio exclaimed. “Isn’t it crazy we’re talking about a potential meeting with North Korea in a couple months, and this is where the president is focused? He’s focused on dossiers, criminals, bad lawyers, Roger Stone, and a former porn star. This is so not where we should not be as a country, and that’s what’s probably the most disturbing about everything.”
“Do you make sense of the way Avenatti is playing the cards right now?” Witt persisted. “Do you get a sense of his end game?”
“Well, I think every day he has an end game, a daily end game and that is to just poke and prod the president, and he’s very good at it,” the GOP consultant replied. “He’s definitely been able to bring this to Twitter, which is Donald Trump’s favorite place to be nasty. And he knows that Donald Trump won’t fight back too hard. So he’s definitely getting under the president’s skin, and that is a really smart press strategy.”
“It’s just unfortunate that President Trump can’t put it aside and focus — especially if he had no relationship as he claims — and focus on putting the country first,” she concluded.
