MSNBC’s Mika says ‘doddering dictator wannabe’ Trump is ‘angry and out of it’ after Democrats gain power

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski said President Donald Trump is reacting poorly to the Republican Party's midterm losses, and she said his sullen behavior over the weekend in Europe is just one example.


The "Morning Joe" co-host said the president clearly fears losing some power to Democrats in the House of Representatives, and she dreads what he'll do next.

"The behavior really shows to me, from knowing the man," Brzezinski said, "the completely cornered, doddering dictator wannabe -- that is the behavior that we're seeing. He's angry and out of it."

Host Joe Scarborough said the president's behavior during events marking 100th anniversary of the end of World War I was exactly what voters rejected in last week's elections.

"He can't afford to lose a single vote from 2016," Scarborough said. "He already lost by almost 3 million votes. This is going in a very, very bad direction for the Republicans, as it has been for a very long time. The only difference is now Republicans actually have the evidence in front of them that voters reject this. We'll see how they respond."

MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch said the president had been personally wounded by the election losses.

"Donald Trump's brand to him has always been, more than anything, winning," Deutsch said. "Roy Cohn taught him, even when you lose, you won. He lost last week, he has a big 'L' on his forehead. Donald Trump is now a loser."
