In a very harsh assessment of President Donald Trump’s rapid descent into conspiracy theories and manic tweeting as the reality of impeachment grows daily, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said Republicans need to admit that the president is “not well.”
“What every Republican on Capitol Hill knows” Scarborough began “[is] Donald Trump is not well, Donald Trump’s not emotionally fit to be president, Republicans, and you know it. He’s not mentally fit to be president of the United States right now and you know it.”
Scarborough went on to criticize the president for his decision to leave the Kurds in Syria at the mercy of Turkish forces, saying, “There are allies that sacrificed their lives, sacrificed their everything for us who are on the run this morning who are bleeding out, who are dying because Donald Trump decided on a whim to release them.”
“There are women and children once again in danger of being raped and brutalized and tortured by ISIS,” the MSNBC host charged. “Donald Trump suggests that we can just let ISIS go and they can go back and there are so many disturbing things, Mika, it is more obvious than ever Donald Trump is neither emotionally or mentally fit to be president of the United States.”
GOP giving up trying to reclaim House seats as 2020 wipeout looms: report
Faced with a ticket likely headed by an unpopular president and watching the Democrats rake in campaign cash ahead of the 2020 election, the Republican Party is conceding they will not win back the House by reclaiming seats they lost in the so-called 2018 "blue wave" election.
According to a report from Politico, Democratic candidates have been stockpiling massive amounts of cash to wage war in what is expected to be a high turnout election with Donald Trump as the face of the Republican Party and seats that the GOP thought they might have a shot at now appearing unattainable.
Trump impersonated a CNN anchor — and a US president — during epic meltdown at Texas speech
President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.
Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States -- and a CNN anchor.
"No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas," Trump said. "Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it."
In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.
He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.
"I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look," Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.
WATCH LIVE: Beto O’Rourke holds ‘Rally Against Fear’ to counter Trump’s re-election rally
While supporters of President Donald Trump gathered on Thursday in the American Airlines Center Dallas, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke held a "Rally Against Fear" less than 15 miles away in Grand Prairie.
O'Rourke's presidential campaign said the rally was to "directly confront Donald Trump’s dangerous hatred and division on the night he tries to spread it across the battleground state of Texas."
"We will not be defined by this president’s fear, his hate, or the differences between us that he tries to exploit but instead by a renewed sense of hope and a unified vision for the future of our country. In this moment of smallness, paranoia, and division, Texas is going to lead the way with our strength, our courage, our diversity, and the big, bold, ambitious things we want to achieve together," the campaign said.
