Former executive vice president of the Trump Organization Barbara Res told CNN on Friday that President Donald Trump used to ‘roll with the punches’ — but the stress of his mounting scandals and investigations has the president ‘afraid’ in a way she’s never seen.
“Typically and historically, he always rolled with the punches,” Res told host Brianna Keilar. “He used to say all press is good press. Now I don’t see that. I see him going into a corner, I see him scratching back like a cornered animal. I think he’s afraid.”
Res added that Nancy Pelosi was getting under the president’s skin, and mocked Trump’s retaliatory cancelation of the House Speaker’s military flight to Afghanistan.
“What’s kind of funny about it is he likes to hit back, where you shoot him with a water pistol and he’ll shoot you back with a Magnum or something,” she laughed.
“He likes to hit back ten times harder than he’s been hit or more, and he’s got nothing to hit her back with,” Res added. “This is silly. It looks ridiculous.”
