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.”
Trump’s strategy isn’t working in Pennsylvania — a state the president can’t afford to lose: report
Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio are the four states that GOP strategists have been describing as President Donald Trump’s “Rust Belt firewall” — states that went to President Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012 but favored Trump over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. But that “firewall” has not been holding up for the president. Trump’s reelection campaign has "temporarily" suspended its advertising in Michigan, although it continues to advertise in the other three — all of which are clearly in play for former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. And Philadelphia-based reporter Holly Otterbein, in an article published in Politico on August 2, stresses that so far, Trump’s attacks on Biden have not been resonating in Pennsylvania.
A 2020 ‘Blue Wave’ could badly cripple the Republican Party for years: Dem strategist
In a column for New York magazine, Democratic strategist Ed Kilgore claimed that a "Blue Wave" election in 2020, like the one that switched the balance of power in the House to the Democrats, could have a far-reaching impact on congressional representation in elections to come.
In 2018, distaste for Donald Trump -- who was not on the ballot -- led voters to take out their wrath on Republican lawmakers, handing Democrats a net gain of 40 seats in the House and making Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) the House Speaker.
‘Disaster and disgrace’: Regretful Trump voter disgusted by his handling of COVID-19 and race relations
Joe Biden has opened a four-point lead over President Donald Trump in Ohio, which the Republican won by twice that margin four years ago.
A survey conducted by Your Voice Ohio found the Democratic candidate leading Trump by 46-42, and Biden seems to be peeling off some of the president's past supporters in the state, reported the Columbus Dispatch.
