On Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “The Situation Room,” analyst Gloria Borger laid into President Donald Trump for his bizarre press conference anointing himself “the chosen one.”
“‘I am the chosen one,’ and that comes after the president re-tweeted a conspiracy theorist radio host who said that he is like the second coming,” said host Brianna Keilar. “So what do you make of all of this?”
“I think maybe his mommy should have told him she loved him a little bit more,” said Borger. “I don’t know. It is hard — it is hard to know what to make of this. Some people will say, as Trump says, ‘Oh, I was only joking when I said all of that stuff.’ But the truth of the matter is that he does this all of the time, and talks about how wonderful he is, and if you recall during his speech at the convention when he talked about the problems the country was facing he was saying ‘I alone can fix it.'”
“So this is a familiar refrain from Donald Trump, who is not shy about telling us that he is the best person in the world for any job,” added Borger.
It is worth noting that Trump’s mother once complained to Trump’s first wife, “What kind of son have I created?”

‘What was he talking about?’ CNN’s Angela Rye baffled by Joe Biden’s ‘victim-blaming’ rant about black families
The former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus was baffled by an exchange during the third Democratic debate.
"I’ve seen a lot of criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden over this exchange," CNN's Jake Tapper said, playing a clip.
"What responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?" moderator Linsey Davis asked Biden on Thursday.
"We bring social workers into homes and parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It is not they don’t want to help. They don’t know quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the television — excuse me make sure that you have the record player on at night, the phone —" Biden said.
Pennsylvania Trump voter shreds president for breaking promises to Rust Belt: ‘He pulled a Houdini on us’
A Pennsylvania man who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 told CNN on Friday that he's bitterly disappointed in how he's seen no progress in manufacturing jobs returning to his community.
John Golomb, a retired steel worker who backed the president in 2016 because of his promises to bring back good paying jobs to the Rust Belt, explained to CNN that Trump gave his community false hope about an economic revival during his first presidential campaign.
"We had Donald Trump come here and profess about reviving American steel," he said. "That's just what all of us steelworkers wanted to hear!"
