'Rock bottom': How Trump has made Washington more dysfunctional than ever
President Donald Trump responds to a question about Jussie Smollett (Screen cap).

Reporters Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer on Friday talked about President Donald Trump's relationship with Congress during an appearance with CNN's Kate Bolduan -- and they said that things have been getting much worse than they've ever seen.


During their interview, Sherman said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in particular has been annoyed at the way Trump keeps nominating unqualified partisans to important governmental positions, such as two of his latest nominations to the Federal Reserve.

"He's going to stand up and say, 'You need to talk to me before you nominate somebody to a post,'" he explained. "Don't just send up Herman Cain and Stephen Moore, two people who largely don't pass the straight-face test when it comes to the Federal Reserve."

Palmer then explained how Trump's behavior has strained relationships all over Capitol Hill, not just between Trump and McConnell.

"What we spent two years reporting on was... how do these relationships bend or change in the era of Donald Trump," she said. "It's not just Donald Trump versus Congress. It's Republicans versus Democrats in Congress, and it really seems as though we're hitting rock bottom."
