Trump and his supporters mocked on MSNBC for suffering from ‘Border Wall Personality Disorder’

As President Donald Trump presides over the longest shutdown in the history of America, one MSNBC guest said there is a personality disorder afflicting Trump supporters fixated on building his wall.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump’s signature issue was a concrete wall that would cost the United States nothing, because Mexico would pay for it. Trump has now shut down the government to insist that U.S. taxpayers spend over $5 billion as a downpayment on his new plan for a steel slat fence.

MSNBC anchor David Gura recounted the 1995 shutdown when Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich largely took the blame for the closure.

The New York Daily News famously branded Gingrich as a “cry baby” for shutting down the federal government because President Bill Clinton made him sit in the back of an airplane.

“You have a president now who is talking about potentially having this drag on for a month, or months, or years,” Gura noted. “That is something that has been uttered by this president of the United States.”

Lizz Winstead, co-creator of “The Daily Show,” suggested many Trump supporters are simply uninformed about the actual dynamics of the shutdown.

“Well, I think that for people who buy into every single thing this president says, they look at the federal workforce as people who are living in the swamp and deserve their swampy behavior and they don’t realize the overwhelming majority of the federal workforce doesn’t live in Washington, D.C.,” Winstead explained.

“So when those people start talking to their elected officials, and they say I am super struggling, that is what we are going to have to wait for,” she continued.

She also brought up her medical advice for moving forward.

“I literally think we should come up with a mental disorder called Border Wall Personality Disorder,” Winstead said.

“BWPD,” Gura noted.

“Yeah, BWPD, because it’s the only thing that’s keeping him going at this point,” Winstead said. “And the historical nature with which it originated, to the doubling down on it, to the human suffering because of it, is a profound disorder to me at this point.”

Supreme Court timeline on Trump’s taxes gives time for Manhattan prosecutors to file charges: Former US Attorney

Published

on

Former U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah tweeted a recent report that the U.S. Supreme Court would be taking up President Donald Trump's case to keep his taxes away from investigators.

That case between Trump and Congress invokes a 1924 law that says the Ways and Means Committee has the authority to seek tax returns. Rocah mocked the president for being "so shady, so corrupt, so unlawful, that you’re willing to fight the release of your tax returns all the way to the Supreme Court."

Trump says cough drop in Pelosi’s mouth was her teeth falling out

Published

on

President Donald Trump lashed out at Speaker Nancy Pelosi Sunday on Twitter instead of defending himself against accusations of bribery.

Pelosi did her weekly press conference at the end of the week while sucking on either a cough drop or a mint. It wouldn't be shocking if it was the former, as Pelosi was clearing her throat and also drinking water while speaking to the press.

Trump decided it was neither, and instead, it was false teeth falling out of her mouth.

"Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!" Trump tweeted in response to a video from the press conference.
