On Friday, conservative commentator Amanda Carpenter bashed the revelations in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report as totally “bonkers.”
Carpenter slammed Trump and his team for lying and said that the report reveals how “dumb” and “arrogant” they are. She railed against White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders for lying to reporters, and misleading the American people.
“These lies have cost the taxpayers $25 million. The truth is, there was attempted collusion. There was attempted obstruction. And because they lied and lied and lied at every turn, we had to go have this 22-months-long investigation,” Carpenter said.
“This report can be summed up in two volumes. It’s not obstruction and collusion. It’s dumb and arrogant. The whole first volume is filled with dumb mistakes that this campaign made. They took all kinds of meetings, and then they lied about it in stupid and dumb ways.”
“The second part is about covering up for those lies because Donald Trump didn’t want anyone to know that these meetings happened. This is bonkers stuff. No wonder Trump wanted to cover it up,” she said.

Trump is ‘not a stable genius’: GOP strategist says the president ‘doesn’t remember who and where he is’
President Donald Trump's mental fitness is lacking, a top Republican strategist explained on "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.
Rick Wilson, the author of the 2018 bestselling book Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever, blasted the commander-in-chief.
"Rick Wilson, your assessment of where the president stands as he heads off to the G7 summit?" O'Donnell asked.
"I think Donald Trump has had a week in which he is proving that this isn’t 87-dimensional chess game, this isn't some masterful strategy of communications or persuasion," Wilson replied. "This is an old man who is sick and who has problems and who has mental disconnects and who has aphasias and who has moments where he doesn’t remember who and where he is."
