Billionaire Tom Steyer painted a terrifying potrait of President Donald Trump during a Friday night interview on MSNBC’s “The Last Word.”
Guest host Ali Velschi played a recent clip on the subject from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“He knows it’s not a good idea to be impeached. Well, the silver lining for him is, then he believes that he would be exonerated by the United States Senate,” Pelosi said. “And there is a school of thought that says if the Senate acquits you, why bring up charges against him in the private sector when he’s no longer president. So when we go there with our case, it’s got to be ironclad.”
“Do you think Donald Trump thinks that way?” Velshi asked. “Do you think that he’s fishing for impeachment because he feels safe in the Senate?”
“Absolutely the opposite, Ali,” Steyer replied.
“I think this is a panicked president who understands that he’s guilty as sin and understands that everybody in Washington, D.C. believes he’s more than met the criteria for impeachment,” he continued.
“In fact, part of the urgency about getting this process going and getting rid of him is the fact that he is panicked and you can see his behavior deteriorating and I expect it will deteriorate every single day between now and November of 2020,” he warned.
“So in fact, when you see him acting against Mexico with tariffs, you can see a president who is out of control, who is panicked and who is going to be taking irrational decisions to try and move the conversation away from the fact that everybody knows he’s guilty,” Steyer concluded.
‘He’s ignorant — not stupid’: NYT columnist says Trump is trying to ‘bait’ Democrats because he wants to run against AOC
President Donald Trump is not going to get the 2020 opponent he wants, so he's going to pretend that his actual opposition is being led by the four young women in Congress known as The Squad, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni wrote on Tuesday.
Trump has spent the last few days with racist attacks on the four first-term members, who are Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
Red Alert: record temperatures in world’s northernmost settlement
Temperatures hit a record 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit in Alert, the northernmost permanently inhabited spot on the planet less than 600 miles from the North Pole, the Canadian meteorology service said Tuesday.
"It's quite phenomenal as a statistic, it's just one example among hundreds and hundreds of other records established by global warming," Armel Castellan, a meteorologist at the Canadian environment ministry told AFP.The temperature -- 21 degrees on the Celsius scale -- was recorded on Sunday at Alert, a permanent military base on the 82nd parallel which intercepts Russian communications and which has been home to a weather station since 1950.
The temperature was marked at 69.8 F on Sunday and 68 F the following day. "It's an absolute record, we've never seen that before," said Castellan.
‘Nickel and Dimed’ for the sharing economy: Inside the hellish new reality of low-wage work
In 2001, journalist Barbara Ehrenreich's investigative book "Nickel and Dimed" revealed to those who weren't on low-wage payrolls how expensive it is to be a member of the working poor in America. Some things haven't changed since Ehrenreich's experiences working as a Walmart clerk, a restaurant server and a maid, among other jobs. Housing can still be prohibitively expensive on low hourly wages, and high turnover remains a constant. Workers still risk their health — mental, physical and emotional — every precarious day.
