During a Monday discussion about President Donald Trump's "shocking" behavior at the G-7, in which the U.S. leader started a trade war with Canada and the European Union, CNN reporter Michelle Kosinski explained that leaders were confused about the encounter they had with Trump at a time where allied friendship and global cooperation was to be the theme.
However, it was former CIA officer Phil Mudd who flattened the president with an attack on his eye-rolling immaturity.
"Well, look, long-term we can withstand this we've been with some of these countries more than a century, but let's go short-term," he pivoted. "The president has two and a half years and he just threw a fourth-grade hissy fit and I would have been kept behind by Sister Noelle for this if I had a hissy fit in fourth grade."
He explained that the Europeans have great interest in the Iran nuclear deal and in Russia when it comes to energy and with the Japanese on the Chinese being in the south China Sea. At the same time, Americans must "deal with Russia" going forward with the European and the Canadians on the election intervention.
"Would you trust the president of the United States after that tantrum?" Mudd asked. "The answer is no. And to close, Wolf, God forbid we see the same kind of incidents as George H.W. Bush and the invasion of Iraq. We saw in my generation the invasion of Iraq a second time and the Afghan war. what do you tell the people who sent soldiers to die with us in those wars? Sorry about the president throwing a hissy fit but if there is another catastrophic event in the United States don't worry about it, we love you. I think the president did a great deal of damage. Maybe not for the long term but at least for the next two and a half years."
In the second segment, Mudd noted the Secretary of State seems to be one of the few professionals in the room.
"I think the real player here is the mature guy like Mike Pompeo," he said.
