MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Wednesday reported on the bombshell New York Times report on President Donald Trump using his iPhone despite being warned both China and Russia are listening to his calls.
“Sometimes there are certain things you want the people around you to go ahead and tell you — even if it’s embarrassing — like if your zipper is down, right? Or if you have spinach in your front teeth,” Maddow noted.
“Or if, for Pete’s sake, you are the President of the United States and you are haplessly ascending the stairs with Air Force One with, wait for it … toilet paper [stuck to your shoe],” Maddow joked, playing a hilarious clip of Trump.
The MSNBC candidate said, “I’m willing to float a different theory about the president and the paper stuck to his shoe.”
After recounting the president’s iPhone scandal, Maddow explained her new conclusions.
“If U.S. intelligence and the White House knows he has this problem with China and apparently Russia as well — listening in to his private calls — the president’s staff knows he has this problem, why is he still talking on his private phone?” she asked. “And why tonight are administration officials talking about this to The New York Times?”
“They’ve been telling him in private there’s a security issue, he does not care,” she noted. “So now they’re telling him in big, bold letters in the newspaper.”
“In this case, this is them telling him, ‘hey, sir, you’ve got a little spinach in your teeth,’ and he’s like, ‘oh, yeah, get me a poppy seed bagel, see if I can get some of that stuck in there too.'”
“They’re telling him, ‘sir, you have four pieces of Charmin on your left shoe.’ And he’s like, ‘cool, how we get some on the other shoe, think we can get six or eight pieces to stick?'”
“This is — this is more than worrying — this is weird, right?” she asked. “How does this get fixed?”
