‘He does not belong in this office’: Ron Reagan says Trump ‘has been crazy because he is crazy’

Published

The son of Republican President Ronald Reagan blasted President Donald Trump on MSNBC on Tuesday.

Ron Reagan, Jr. was interviewed on “Hardball” by Chris Matthews.

The host recounted Trump’s attacks on Denmark after they said Greenland was not for sale.

“He wants to fight with everybody, including the quiet, American-loving Danes. What’s up?” Matthews asked.

“Well, it’s craziness, but I take a little umbrage at this idea that we have to ascribe it to something like the economy or his anxiousness about re-election. He’s acting the way he’s acting because he is who he is and what he is,” Reagan replied.

“And we have to stop being surprised about any of this kind of stuff. It’s only going to get worse as we get closer to the election and more pressure mounts on him,” he continued.

“Look, the economy may be heading into a recession. That puts pressure on a president. Well, you know what Truman said about heat and kitchens. The presidency is full of pressure. If this is enough to push him over the edge, really, let me state the obvious, he does not belong in this office,” Reagan declared.

“I’m going to argue with Ron for the first time in a couple months here because of this,” Matthews said.

“I think going to war with Denmark is still freaking news. I’m sorry. It still makes my list. This is like a Mel Brooks movie. I mean, what? I’ll go back to you, Ron. Why do you think it’s okay or this fits the normal pattern of our lives now. He wants to go to war over Greenland if you wrote this description in Hollywood, nobody would buy it,” Matthews explained.

“It’s not that it’s okay. It’s normal for him. I mean, yes, this is completely crazy, of course,” Reagan replied.

“I think it’s about time we acknowledge he’s been crazy because he is crazy. And it’s just going to keep going,” he warned.

Trump flip-flops on meeting with Iran with ‘no preconditions’– then blames it on the media

Published

on

President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.

"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.

In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.

“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”

Published

the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Donald Trump in coal hard hat thumbs up

President Donald Trump's promises to coal miners have fallen along with his other broken campaign promises. Another state is facing the harsh reality that Trump is not riding in on a white horse to save them.

According to Axios, three out of the nine coal companies in the Powder River Basin in northeastern Wyoming have filed for bankruptcy and another two companies are consolidating. Kentucky coal miners have been protesting Blackjewl, which filed for bankruptcy in July, withdrawing payroll dollars from miners' accounts. Little has been heard about the Wyoming workers as those companies crumble, however.
