MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace offered a fascinating psychological analysis of President Donald Trump during an appearance on MSNBC’s new “Saturday Night Politics” show with Donny Deutsch.
“Day in and day out we’re following Mueller, we’re following Russia,” the host noted. “I think the real dirty gem in there is the Russian money that’s going to come out, because the big question is other than Deutsche Bank where is he getting his money from? That’s when it becomes black and white.”
Wallace, who was a top Republican communications strategist prior to her career in broadcast journalism, offered viewers a warning before she offered her theory.
“This might be a little genderish and if it makes you squirm I’m sorry, Donald Trump is obsessed with the size of his — hands,” she said.
“Turns out if one thing’s fake — and just girl in the bar — if your hair is fake and the hand size is something that gets under your skin and your wealth turns out to be fake,” she explained.
“You are taking up residence inside Donald Trump’s head in a way that could be devastating in a way that has nothing to do with whether you gave to charity or where the money came from,” she suggested.
“Donald Trump’s wealth is a primal as the time and energy he spends on his hairdo, defending the size and performance of his hands as he did in that debate in the primaries with Marco Rubio,” she continued.
“This stuff is ridiculous and uncomfortable, but it matters to him,” Wallace added. “And if I’m a Democratic strategist I want to understand what matters to him.”
Trump knocks down the reopening of Obamacare exchanges for uninsured Americans during pandemic
President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he would not reopen so-called Obamacare exchanges to allow uninsured Americans to purchase insurance during the ongoing pandemic.
Last week, Trump seemed open to the idea, noting: “It’s something we're talking to a lot of people about.”
But NBC News reported on Wednesday that the president had decided against the move. It was not immediately clear if the Trump administration will take action specifically to help uninsured Americans as they face the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Open enrollment typically runs from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 in the 38 states that use the federal exchange, healthcare.gov," CNN reported.
Trump headed for a ‘breakdown’ as the coronavirus crisis puts his ineptitude on daily display: columnist
In a column for Politico, founding editor John F. Harris claims Donald Trump's presidency is on the verge of "breakdown" because of the speed with which the COVID-19 pandemic has paralyzed the country which has, in turn, put his inability to manage a crisis on full display for the country to see.
Pointing out Trump is now finding the "currents of history shifting violently" against him, Harris suggests that the president's primary weapons to use against his opponents will fail when it comes to dealing with a national health crisis.
Trump administration refuses to close America’s national parks — and now their staffs are up in arms
America's national parks are still open during the coronavirus pandemic, and it's causing revolts among staff members who say they and their communities are being put at risk.
The Daily Beast reports that staffers at the Grand Canyon National Park are begging their bosses to temporarily shut down the park until the worst of the disease has passed.
"We feel our boss is not meeting up with our pleas," one Grand Canyon ranger tells the publication. "It’s political, to keep up the image... I feel people’s idea of the Grand Canyon is that you can isolate, but there’s two entrances. They are all going to the same view stations and same trails. It funnels people to the same spots."
