MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski slammed President Donald Trump and his legal team for making every bad situation worse.
Every day seems to bring a new bombshell about the president’s worsening legal situation, and the “Morning Joe” co-host said Trump and his TV apologists stomp on every bomb in the minefield.
“It feels like the cracks in this are getting deeper, getting closer to something,” Brzezinski said.
Jeffrey Goldberg, editor in chief of The Atlantic, said Rudy Giuliani seemingly admits to new crimes by the president every time he goes on television to defend Trump.
“If you were writing a bad screenplay — because this isn’t a good one, it’s a bad one — you would have this happening against the backdrop of a potential cataclysmic or possibly fantastic summit between North Korea and the United States,” Goldberg said. “It doesn’t seem to be going well. John Bolton has helped make sure it doesn’t go well, but everything seems to be coming to a head, and when you have the president on the international stage trying to negotiate the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and having basically this investigation getting closer and closer to his associates, it’s a recipe for bad screenwriting and real-life serious problems.”
The president is risking long-term national security and placing himself in greater legal jeopardy with self-inflicted mistakes, Brzezinski said.
“As the details come out, you don’t see like a sort of a strategy to do something nefarious,” Brzezinski said. “It’s almost like they’re a bunch of idiots, just a bunch of idiots trying to cover their tracks on whatever they might need to cover and they don’t even know what to cover. Even like the desperate attempt to talk about the meeting being about Russian adoptions. Where would you pull that out of, and why?”
