Donald Trump lashes out at his biographer as ‘broken down hack’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Thursday attacked a biographer and CNN analyst for unflattering analysis of his administration.

“A third-rate conman who interviewed me many years ago for just a short period of time has been playing his biggest con of all on fake news CNN,” Trump claimed.

“Michael D’Antonio, a broken down hack who knows nothing about me, goes on night after night telling made up Trump stories,” he complained.

D’Antonio is the author of the 2016 book The Truth About Trump.

“Disgraceful,” Trump added.

On Wednesday evening, after Trump caved to Nancy Pelosi, D’Antonio said the president was scared.

“It’s shocking,” D’Antonio said. “This sounds like something that maybe Ivanka wrote or Jared Kushner. It really doesn’t sound like Donald Trump’s language. This is a fellow who has troubles stringing three words together in the right order.”

“I think he’s scared. He’s afraid,” the biographer continued. “He’s politically afraid the Senate Republicans are probably telling him this is a disaster. He sees that people are suffering and are fed up with maybe he’s going to act presidential because he’s being forced to act presidential.”

Last week, D’Antonio said Trump feels a need to “rig” everything he does.

“Donald Trump believes either you’re a sucker or you’re taking advantage of the suckers,” he said. “So we were the suckers. They took advantage of us. But there’s also I think something consistent with Donald Trump’s entire life going on here. This is a man who thinks that he cannot win a straight-up competition. He has to somehow rig whatever game he’s playing.”

D’Antonio was a member of a Pulitzer Prize-winning team at Newsday and he has written for The New York Times and The Washington Post.

‘Trump people lie — we know that’: Ex-House GOP staffer shreds Democrats for letting Lewandowski off the hook

Published

on

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski denounced President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as "rude" and "insolent" -- but her fellow "Morning Joe" panelists ripped House Democrats for letting him off the hook with obstructing their investigation.

Lewandowski turned the House Judiciary Committee hearing into a "circus," Brzezinski said, and panelists agreed he unlawfully claimed executive privilege, and a former Republican House staffer said he should have been charged with contempt of Congress.

"He was a mini Trump," Brzezinski said. "You can speak to Corey Lewandowski in real life, and often you can see someone who doesn't seem like Trump. In front of the cameras, he was playing for an audience of one. He was rude, he was insolent, he was stonewalling and, ultimately, being revealed to be a liar after being shown that he went on a national TV show, Ari Melber, it's not like a camera was shoved in his face, and he chose to lie to the American people."

"Netanyahu says Israel needs a Zionist government that is committed for Israel as a Jewish state. No government can be based on support from Arab parties," Ravid said.
