An MSNBC panel on Monday discussed President Donald Trump's habit of mentioning unidentified "friends" who support his views.


MSNBC host Katy Tur played clips of Trump mentioning such "friends" in speeches. She noted that Bloomberg had actually done some reporting to try to track down who some of these friends were.

"My god, he's so exhausting and tiring," remarked Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post. "The idea that we have to pretend like he knows what he's talking about, that he has any -- that there is any real authority behind anything that he's saying about this friend, about Jim. Why not just say, this is what I think."
