Reviewing last week’s events that saw the stock market collapse, Defense Secretary James Mattis resign, the government shut-down and GOP lawmakers taking open shots at Donald Trump — ‘Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough declared the president’s administration “terminal.”
Speaking with panelist Eugene Scott of the Washington Post, Scarborough asked, “What do we do, Gene, when it does appear that this administration is terminal? This administration will not survive.”
“What does everybody do working together to make sure that this administration that is terminal does not behave in a way that creates, not only a governing crisis, but a pandemic not only across this country but across the world?” he added.
“I agree with you about this,” Robinson replied. “We seem to have entered — you called it terminal — an unacceptable zone, a kind of end state of this administration where we have total chaos.”
“[The U.S.] government is shut down, the markets are in free-fall,” the columnist explained. “We have a Treasury secretary who perhaps accidentally further destabilized the markets over the weekend with ill-advised phone calls to the heads of the major banks saying, ‘don’t worry about anything.’ So, of course, everybody worries about everything.”
Scarborough went on to point out that Trump won’t survive now the Republicans feel free to criticize him in public.

Gordon Sondland’s explosive televised testimony piles more pressure on Trump and Giuliani
The US ambassador to the European Union told an impeachment hearing Wednesday that he followed President Donald Trump's orders in seeking a "quid pro quo" deal for Ukraine to probe a political rival in exchange for a White House summit.
In explosive televised testimony, Sondland -- whose appearance was being watched especially closely as he was a Trump ally -- said he believed the president was pressing Ukraine to investigate his potential 2020 challenger Joe Biden.
"We followed the president's orders," Sondland testified before the House Intelligence Committee.
He said that Trump forced US diplomats to work with his personal lawyer, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.
‘Far deeper and broader than Watergate’: Ex-US diplomat appalled at scope of Trump’s corruption
R. Nicholas Burns, a longtime diplomat who served as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs under former President George W. Bush, found himself shocked and appalled by the scope of corruption under President Donald Trump.
Reacting to European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland's devastating impeachment inquiry testimony, in which he confirmed there was a quid pro quo that involved arranging a face-to-face meeting between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in exchange for launching investigations of former Vice President Joe Biden, Burns argued that the current scandal is bigger than anything he's ever seen.
Ken Starr suggests Sondland’s testimony could prompt GOP to ‘make a trip to the White House’ and ask Trump to resign
In the run-up to the release of Gordon Sondland's opening statement for this Wednesday's impeachment hearings, Fox News contributor Ken Starr suggested that Sondland's testimony could cause GOP senators to push for President Trump's resignation.
“The real issue is the senators are watching,” Starr said. “Are senators going to now say in light of what we hear today, it’s going to be a long day even with the ambassador alone, in light of what we have heard, ‘We need to make a trip down to the White House’?"
"That historic example set during the Nixon presidency," Starr continued. "From what I’ve been able to glean I don’t think that’s going to happen. But obviously what happens today could—has the potential to be a game-changer."
