The British sucked up to Trump during his visit even though the rest of Europe thinks he’s ‘insane’: MSNBC contributor

Published

During a panel of discussion on Donald Trump’s United Kingdom sojourn, an MSNBC contributor said that many countries ignored his antics and that Europe in general considers the so-called leader of the free world “insane.”

Speaking with AM Joy host Joy Reid, MSNBC contributor Christopher Dickey was asked about Trump’s decision to sign a D-Day proclamation at the top away from other world leader’s signatures and how it was viewed.

“They didn’t pay much attention to him at all, they essentially ignored it,” Dickey dryly replied. “In France, the D-Day celebrations and Trump’s part was carried deep inside the newspapers, they didn’t pay attention.”

“The British are a little more aggressive in their dealings with Trump because they are about to pull out of the European Union and they need the American support,” he continued. “He’s giving them bad advice and we have a situation where Britain is going crazy either pro or con with Donald Trump and the rest of Europe has always thought he was insane and a loose cannon and are praying he doesn’t get elected.”

Appearing with Fox News personality Laura Ingraham, lawyer Yoo -- who is infamous for providing President George W. Bush's administration with legal justifications for the torture of prisoners of war -- claimed that the Founding Fathers would object to the president being impeached in an election year.

According to Yoo, Democrats are getting it all wrong when they say the Constitution compels them to hold impeachment proceedings against Trump just one year before the election.

Mad dog Trump and his Bible-thumping kennel pals: White House theocrats may be the biggest danger of all

“I have done nothing to harm these people but they are angered with me, so what do they do, doctor up some income tax, for which they have no case… to harass a peaceful man.”

You could be excused for thinking that Donald Trump spoke these words of self-pity. In fact, they’re from Robert de Niro, playing that other gangster, Al Capone, in the 1987 movie The Untouchables, written by David Mamet.

Like Trump, a would-be dictator madly claiming the overwhelming support of the populace, the real-life Capone insisted that his criminal acts satisfied “a public demand.” He declared, “I am just a businessman, giving the people what they want.” And a certain percentage of the civilian population—Capone’s “base,” if you will—thought he was just swell.
