Republican strategist Susan Del Percio said that President Donald Trump is “constantly spinning out of control” while trying to hold the United States together.
During a Monday MSNBC panel discussion, the Republican advisor explained that innocent people don’t generally freak out like the president did this weekend. And that secure people don’t generally attack others so personally, particularly after they’re dead.
“What is just so scary is that in some ways he is also so transparent,” she said. “What is he concerned about? Why does he go after people? There was a tragedy in New Zealand and everyone talked about the prime minister’s leadership and he knows he doesn’t have any.”
Over the weekend, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was heralded for her compassion and strength in the face of the horrific tragedy that left more than 50 people dead.
“I mean when he is looking in, he is looking to overcompensate, he is projecting,” she continued. “He is seeing leadership by a woman doing an amazing job healing her country and all he is known for doing is dividing the country. So it stands out. He makes his comments — I don’t know if he knows it’s not the right thing but he doubles down on it. Then he just goes into a twist. It is the same thing about McCain. McCain is a hero and he went to Vietnam, he suffered in the camps, Donald Trump got out of Vietnam and is a coward because of bone spurs.”
MSNBC host Katy Tur wondered if it’s still a story that Trump isn’t presidential and says crazy irrational things. The panel agreed it was because it isn’t a normal thing to come from a president and never should be.

John Oliver perfectly explains the Mueller report in a way all Americans can understand
The overwhelming majority of Americans have not read the 400-plus-page report from special counsel Robert Mueller. As it stands, it's unclear how many elected officials have either. It's become a problem for Democrats, who would like to impeach the president but can't get the American people to pay attention long enough.
"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver has a solution. In his Sunday show, Oliver outlined a vital piece of the report that outlined just one of many obstructions of justice at the hand of President Donald Trump.
After he outlined what impeachment is, he showed Trump talking about the law that claims it's for "high crimes and misdemeanors." According to Trump, he has to be accused of both because it says "and." An annoyed Oliver corrected the president's incorrect assessment.
John Oliver unleashes epic supercut of Fox News host who can’t stop bragging about learning German in high school
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade took German as his foreign language in high school. If you didn't know that, then you likely don't watch Fox News, because the host has made a claim several dozen times.
HBO host John Oliver spent a few moments out of his Sunday episode of "Last Week Tonight" to mock Kilmeade for his desire to remind people of his three years of classes frequently.
Kilmeade has talked about it so many times that his co-hosts began preempting his comment every time the country of Germany is mentioned, or the German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears on the screen.

Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats
One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.
According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."
