Voters are fleeing Trump because they’re ‘exhausted’ by his daily melodrama: CNN panel

Published

on

Taking a look at report that President Donald Trump is increasingly attempting to push through initiatives so he has something to run on in the 2020 election, a CNN panel dug into his flurry of tweets about pretty much anything, leading one panel member to say voters are turning on him out of sheer exhaustion.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni said Trump voters turned to him in 2016 because they were tired of Washington politics, but now he has brought his squabbles with the so-called “swamp” into their lives every day with his manic tweeting.

Leaping from a column in the Times where he wrote, “Americans of all persuasions recognize melodrama when it keeps smacking them in the head, and he [Trump] has manufactured a bruising degree of it,” Bruni elaborated.

“I think voters are exhausted with melodrama,” Bruni explained. “There are a lot of things Trump can blame on other people but you can’t put the melodrama on Democrats’ doorsteps. You can’t blame that on fake news.”

“You just have to go to his Twitter account and look at the volume and vitriol of what he tweets,” he added. “People elected Trump, many of those who did, because they don’t like politics, they don’t like Washington and now it’s all they hear about all the time. Basically it’s ambient.”

“I think people are tired of it and I think they realize that, however you align or don’t align with him ideologically, this is a degree of constant turmoil, that can’t be good for the country and is not good for themselves,” he continued. “They don’t like living like this with all of the drama around him all of the time.”

‘Trump may well face charges’ after Supreme Court gave prosecutors access to financial records: Legal experts

Published

on

President Donald Trump could potentially face charges after the Supreme Court dealt him a loss in Trump v. Vance .

The ruling gives Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. the go-ahead to subpoena Trump’s accounting firm as part of his investigation into possible tax crimes involving hush money payments to his mistresses, according to attorneys Norm Eisen and Bassetti in Just Security.

"Trump has significant state law criminal exposure in connection with his hush money payments (for which his fixer Michael Cohen has already gone to jail on federal charges) — and more," the pair wrote. "Trump cannot pardon himself for state law offenses on his way out the door. And the Justice Department’s position that a sitting president cannot be indicted does not bind New York state authorities."

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Berman explained how Barr contacted him and repeatedly pressed him to step down from his position at SDNY to take another high-profile position within the government.

Berman, however, told Barr that he wanted to stay at his current job until a replacement was nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the United States Senate.
