MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace couldn’t help but notice that President Donald Trump seemed incredibly confused in a Fox Business interview today, where he attacked special counsel Robert Mueller.
According to Trump, Mueller “terminated emails,” and “terminated text messages” between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. It’s unclear if Trump meant something else, but no emails were terminated, and everything between Strzok and Page was released publicly. In fact, Republican officials actually read the text messages aloud during hearings and tweeted them out on numerous occasions. It’s still unclear what emails he’s talking about.
Wallace suggested that perhaps Trump’s Ambien hadn’t worn off yet, either way, she noted that Trump is accusing Mueller of a crime.
“Someone should call and tell him what terminated actually means,” she quipped.
She went on to say that Trump is still suffering the consequences of several other actions and accusations.
“Donald Trump there still reeling from his public display of instability on the world stage in the confrontation with Iran last week. Donald Trump, who denied an allegation of sexual assault by saying the accuser wasn’t his type. Donald Trump, who rolls over and plays impotent and powerless as his cruel and incompetent immigration policies victimize children at our borders,” she went on.

Trump’s capitulation cheered on Russian TV: Ambassador McFaul says ‘they are joyous in Moscow’
America's former ambassador to Russia explained how their state media is celebrating President Donald Trump's capitulation in Ukraine and Syria.
Ambassador Michael McFaul was interviewed Wednesday by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.
"How do you think this should play out, now that they are assembling step-by-step insider accounts with people who are bravely stepping forward, some giving up their careers, Mike McKinley and others having had to quit over this," Mitchell noted. "How do you think this plays out legally or in terms of the politics of impeachment?"
"Well, legally, I’ll defer to others who are more expert. I think what it does underscore is how grossly inept and just broken down the Trump foreign policymaking process is," McFaul replied.
Sorry, Ellen and Mayor Pete — but no: We’re not ready to forgive Trump voters
The last question of Tuesday night's Democratic debate appears to have really teed people off. After three hours of a debate that had, as former HUD Secretary Julián Castro noted on Twitter, "no questions tonight about climate, housing or immigration," Anderson Cooper decided to cap things off with a truly saccharine dose of pablum.
Lindsey Graham to Pat Robertson: ‘I’ll become Trump’s worst nightmare’ if he doesn’t stop slaughter of Kurds
During an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) this Wednesday morning, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) reiterated his defense of the Kurds in Syria and took his criticism of President Trump a step further, saying he'll become Trump's "worst nightmare" if Turkey is allowed to continue its incursion into the country's northeast region.
Speaking to televangelist and CBN founder Pat Robertson, Graham said that if Christians are not praying for the Kurds, "we should all be ashamed of ourselves."
"It was the Kurds who worked with the America military to destroy ISIS," Graham said. "If we abandon the Kurds, it will be dishonorable, it will be a disaster."
