MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough agreed with George Conway that President Donald Trump “no doubt” shows evidence of cognitive decline.
The conservative attorney, who’s married to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, has been engaged with a feud with the president, whom he suggests has a mental illness and other possible disabilities.
“George Conway just tweeted a link to that decades-old interview between Tom Brokaw and Donald Trump,” said “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski.
Here’s the Trump-Brokaw interview. It’s from 1980. Trump was 33, and was articulate and coherent, unlike today. https://t.co/lmcidXbimA

Scarborough said he agreed with Conway’s analysis, that Trump seemed less mentally sharp and his syntax was jumbled.
“There is no doubt that what George Conway is getting at is the case,” the “Morning Joe” host said. “He rambles and sort of speaks in word salad right now, unlike earlier tapes.”
Co-host Willie Geist stopped short of diagnosing the president with any illness, but he said Trump was noticeably different than he used to be.
“I’m not a doctor, I’m not going to make any medical diagnosis but you believe your eyes when you see two pieces of tape that are very different,” Geist said.

‘Babbling and incoherent’: Internet stunned by Kudlow’s trainwreck appearance on CNN

Joe Biden says he won’t stand in the way of a possible prosecution of Trump
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told NPR on Thursday that while he was unsure if it was "good for democracy," if elected he would not stand in the way of a hypothetical Justice Department prosecution of President Donald Trump for crimes committed in office.
"Look, the Justice Department is not the president's private law firm," the former vice president said. "The attorney general is not the president's private lawyer. I will not interfere with the Justice Department's judgment of whether or not they think they should pursue the prosecution of anyone that they think has violated the law."
