Morning Joe panel rips Trump’s performance on 60 Minutes: ‘Like a naked baby’

Published

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski gave scathing reviews of President Donald Trump’s performance in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

The president insisted he was “not a baby” during the wide-ranging interview with correspondent Leslie Stahl, but the “Morning Joe” hosts disagreed.

“Seems like a baby — big baby,” Brzezinski said. “Really, really ill-equipped and unfit to lead this country.”

Scaborough said the interview reminded him of the fable, “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” and analyst John Heilemann agreed.

“Like a naked baby, a clothes-free baby,” Heilemann said. “That’s how babies are, they generally don’t have much in the way of clothing.”

Scarborough asked how prepared the president seemed to be, after nearly 20 months on the job.

“Let’s not grade him on a scale, we’re just going to do this straight up,” Scarborough said. “They are not going to score it like they do at Harvard, where everybody gets an A. This is University of Alabama graduation — you don’t do well, you are back at Piggly Wiggly.”

Heilemann gave the president a passing grade — but just barely.

“I thought on the question of how well he seemed to understand the world in its of its dimensions and complexity, I would grade him in the D range,” Heilemann said.

"Every single one of these people I talked to were saying, 'I don't know how I can maintain this face of joy and warmth when I have to go home and forage for food in other people's garbage,'" said Disney.

Toledo has been formally charged with receiving a $20 million payment from Odebrecht to grant it the tender to build the Interoceanic Highway that links Peru with Brazil.
