On Saturday, New York University associate professor Christina Beltran appeared on MSNBC to discuss Trump’s growing vendetta against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), which culminated in him posting a doctored video of her on Twitter.
“He traffics in the politics of domination,” said Beltran. “That is why he needed his staff to do this embarrassing authoritarian performance of obsequiousness to him and say I’m very calm or very — so that was just like humiliating and embarrassing.”
“And I think it drives him crazy that Nancy Pelosi continues to win the media cycle, again and again,” she added. “And part of it, despite his comments of she’s crazy, what America is seeing, he’s not in control of himself. And he lacks impulse control in a pretty complete way.”
“And so watching somebody who lacks control of himself always calls his sort of function — sort of his, not exactly sanity, but his abilities into question. And so I think that that is something that is continuely being at play here.”

He made the comments as part of an interview with his own nephew Sam Etsy Rayner, for Moz’s website.
Here is how Republicans are reacting when confronted with the new rape allegation against Trump
Once again, President Donald Trump has been accused of a sexual assault — one of the most severe charges yet, in fact — and yet the Republican Party continues to make clear that it will not take these allegations seriously.
Journalist E. Jean Carroll detailed her account of Trump raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago in an article, in her new book, and in TV interviews. New York Magazine reported that it contacted two of her friends who confirmed that she told them about the assault shortly after it happened.
‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant
President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.
“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.
The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:
Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw
