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.”
Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent
The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.
The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.
Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
Cincinnati sheriff deputies replace American flag at the Justice Center with ‘thin-blue-line’ flag
Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio's third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.
During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.
While the flag may have been created in support of law enforcement, it has been adopted by white supremacists and taken on a darker meaning.
WATCH: DC protesters turn over ‘agitator’ to police — then the agitators try to start a fight with cops
Protesters in Washington, D.C. were captured on video handing over an agitator to police, while other agitators in paintball tactical gear appeared to try and start fights with police.
Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.
"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.
