Eugene Robinson drops a bomb on Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign — using Fox News reporting

Published

on

The entire panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” claimed that Donald Trump should start worrying about his job security after a Fox News poll came out showing he’s would likely lose to any number of Democrats currently looking to become his opponent in the 2020 election.

According to host Joe Scarborough, “Voters were asked who would win in a potential match-up with President Trump and some of those Democratic candidates and Biden came out as the clear winner with 50 percent saying they would back his run against Donald Trump. 38 percent said they would vote for President Trump in that hypothetical match-up. Voters who had a negative view of both Trump and Biden still backed Biden by 43-10 percent margin in the head to head match-up and President Trump is polling below several other Democratic challengers as well.”

“Of course Donald Trump won with a 38 percent approval rating on Election Day in 2016,” he added. “But of course it’s a lot different being the challenger than being the incumbent. He’s the incumbent now and is not getting the benefit of the doubt from hardly anyone.”

“Those are awful numbers for President Trump across the board really,” added Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson. “And you look at these new numbers, look at polling from the Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania — the states that he took [in 2016] — and he looks bad in those states and you look at what’s happening with the economy and the markets tumbled this week and the fears over recession and you have got a president and a White House that is justifiably in panic over all of this.”

“It’s unclear whether they’re going to respond in any sort of rational way, but they will have to respond because this is a — this looks like a campaign going down the tubes right now,” he added.

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.
