Morning Joe warns Trump’s Epstein conspiracy-mongering proves he’s now mentally ‘unbalanced’

Published

on

Reviewing the weekend’s news that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein appears to have committed suicide while in federal custody — and Donald Trump’s response to it — “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough claimed that the president hinting that Bill and Hillary Clinton were behind the death is a sign of Trump’s mental decline.

Host Scarborough began by asking panelist Jonathan Lemire to bring viewers up to date.

“Well, the president has long trafficked in conspiracy theories,” Lemire began. “He of course was at the forefront of the birtherism movement saying that Obama was not born in the U.S. — which is a lie — and he talked about Ted Cruz’s father perhaps being involved in the JFK assassination.”

“Just hours after Epstein’s death was reported, he [Trump] took to Twitter and retweeted a couple of conspiracy theories that suggested his predecessor, Bill Clinton, perhaps was involved with this death,” he continued. “You know, the president himself didn’t say these things. he’s quick to hide behind the idea that it’s just a retweet. He’s done that in the past when he’s put up inflammatory things but I think this really needs to be focused on here.”

Host Scarborough, noting a report that former White House official Anthony Scaramucci made scathing comments about Trump’s mental fitness over the weekend in a battle with the president, echoed the same sentiments.

“The president almost does Anthony Scaramucci’s work for him when Scaramucci suggests that the president is getting worse,” the Morning Joe host insisted. “How chaotic things have gotten, how you look at Jonathan Lemire’s article from a few weeks ago talking with the Associated Press about how many people around the president who say his management style is becoming outrageously unmoored — and then he caps that off by accusing the Clintons of murder?”

“It does just seem to keep getting worse and the president seems to become more and more unbalanced,” he added.

Published

It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.

Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Published

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
