MSNBC contributor Elise Jordan said President Donald Trump was stuck peddling racism because he’s losing his mental faculties.
The former speechwriter and National Security Council staffer in George W. Bush’s administration said Trump’s attack on four Democratic congresswomen betrayed his inherent racism, and showed that he’s mentally diminished.
“I think you’re being a little bit too charitable regarding Donald Trump having an actual strategy in the first place,” Jordan told “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough. “I think that this is who he is — he’s racist.”
“You have seen it, you know, his entire career,” she continued, “whether it’s calling for five young black men who are innocent to be executed. you see it in his comments consistently throughout the course of his campaign wanting to ban an entire religion from entering the country, and just this week the horrible remarks that, you know, an elected official — elected by her fellow countrymen and women should be grateful to be in the country and should leave otherwise.”
Jordan said the president’s behavior was alarming.
“It’s just incredible to me that we still are not being just more forthright and, you know, saying this for what it is,” she said. “You know, you listen to how he’s speaking sometimes and the crazy things that come out of his mouth, and you wonder why someone isn’t just taking him to Walter Reed (National Military Medical Center) for a full medical because it doesn’t seem to be flowing that well, and I think it’s why he’s going back to his greatest original trick, being racist.”

White House grants press access to Christian site whose founder called impeachment a ‘Jew coup’
The White House granted press credentials to a Christian news site whose founder claimed that President Donald Trump's impeachment was a "Jew coup" organized by a "Jewish cabal" in anti-Semitic remarks.
Five employees of the Florida-based conservative Christian news outlet TruNews received press credentials from the White House to cover Trump's trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last week, founder Rick Wiles told The New York Times from a ski lodge reserved for press members by the Trump administration. The outlet was not granted special access to Trump, though TruNews' Edward Szall asked Ivanka Trump a question during a news conference, according to the report.
Laura Ingraham wants to remove Adam Schiff from Congress: ‘It’s not clear that congressmen can’t be impeached’
Fox News host Laura Ingraham floated a novel legal theory on Monday in an attempt to remove Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) from Congress: that members of Congress can be impeached.
"It’s not clear that congressmen can’t be impeached, by the way," Laura Ingraham told Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).
"It's not clear that they cannot be impeached," she repeated.
Ingraham was simply wrong on the facts, the constitution does not allow the impeachment of members of Congress.
The constitutional mechanism to remove a member of Congress before the end of their two-year term is for two-thirds of the body to vote to expel the member.
