A panel discussing President Donald Trump’s just-concluded trip to the United Kingdom got a thumbs down on MSNBC on Saturday morning with one commenter pointing out that Trump reasserted his position as the “worst” president ever.
Appearing with host David Gura, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Philippe Reines said nothing the president did during his trip enhanced his image.
“I think how he sees himself in it is different than history will see his place in it. He’s really clearly headed for his place as the worst president in United States history.” Reines explained. “First, obviously, he’s jealous of the monarchy — this is his ideal. Our country was founded because we broke away, we didn’t want a monarchy, we wanted accountability.”
“The second thing is there is no human being, alive or dead, less appropriate to represent America to a D- Day celebration,” he continued. “This is a day where 4400 Allied Forces gave their lives. This is the epitome of bravery and dedication and self-sacrifice and Donald Trump wouldn’t know any of those things. It was very hard watching that and, yes, he didn’t spit up on himself when he was speaking.”
Bill Maher rips Trump and ‘the gang that couldn’t do treason straight’ on Real Time
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.
"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."
"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.
"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.
‘Stand with Hong Kong’ shirts fill the stands at Nets game as NBA is protested for China subservience
The National Basketball Association was protested on Friday for bowing to pressure from China.
The NBA has been harshly criticized for standing by the oppressive regime instead of standing in solidarity with the pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.
"Producer and activist Andrew Duncan bought 300 tickets to tonight's Nets vs Raptors game and is hosting hundreds of Chinese pro-Democracy activists to protest the NBA," New York magazine correspondent Yashar Ali reported Friday. "They're all wearing 'Stand With Hong Kong' T-shirts."

Trump polling close friends over whether he should fire Mulvaney: report
President Donald Trump is considering firing Mick Mulvaney, his acting White House chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget, The Atlantic reported Friday.
"Mick Mulvaney's job was in danger even before his disastrous press conference yesterday, and his equally disastrous attempt to walk that performance back," The Atlantic reported. "The fumble could not have been more poorly timed: According to multiple current and former White House officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations, Trump has been steadily souring on Mulvaney for weeks."
