Trump screamed at his aides on his way to El Paso as he melted down over Dems’ criticism: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has faced a torrent of bad publicity over both his response to the devastating mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, and to his use of racist rhetoric that may have contributed to the El Paso shooting in the first place. Crowds of people are protesting wherever he turns up, angry at the lack of action on gun control and Trump’s lack of repentance for his attacks on migrants, and Democratic candidates like Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke are delivering fiery condemnations of the president on television.

Even the White House reportedly recognizes that Trump’s conduct has been a PR disaster. And so, apparently, does Trump himself.

According to The New York Times, Trump shouted at his aides as his plane headed to El Paso, accusing them of not doing enough to defend him from criticism. This came after Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), who accompanied Trump during his visit to Dayton, said that some of the survivors in the hospital privately said they don’t support the president.

Following the Ohio visit, Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino lashed out at Brown, saying that the president was in fact treated like a “rock star.” Trump himself later attacked Brown as a “failed presidential candidate (0%).” (Brown is not running for president.)

"The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

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.
