‘Everything is coming apart’: Ex-Trump officials panicked his presidency is in unstoppable collapse

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that former members of President Donald Trump’s administration see his presidency as mortally endangered and coming more unglued by the day — although they differ on whether Trump was always like this, or whether they simply have had a personal epiphany about the man they once worked for.

“It’s just looking like everything is coming apart,’ one former administration official told Politico. Another said it is a “pipe dream” to constrain Trump because “Everyone who has tried had eventually failed in some way.”

One of the key moments, for many of them, was White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitting, and then trying to walk back, that Trump indeed engaged in a quid pro quo in his attempts to get dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“The wheels are not off the car. The situation is way worse than that. The car has been impounded and we are now waiting to figure out what the fine is and to see whether or not we’re going to get the car back,” said Anthony Scaramucci, who served as Trump’s communications director for ten days before being fired in spectacular fashion. “Mulvaney is a good Catholic and in fairness to him, that was a full-blown Catholic confessional on Thursday afternoon.”

Bush as a lovable oddball and Jon Lovitz portrayed Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis as an emotionally detached technocrat, musing out loud during a debate, "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy."

Even though it was a comedy sketch, that line has been thrown in Democrats' faces ever since as an example of their arrogant elitism and failure to understand Real America. Don't you know that the average voter wants a president they can have a beer with, not some egghead know-it-all?

Trump preparing to question legitimacy of results if he loses 2020 election: Michigan lieutenant governor

Published

Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, D-Mich., has accused President Donald Trump of sowing doubt about November's election months before voting even begins in an attempt to question the "legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose."

Gilchrist criticized Trump for pushing debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail after the state sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think that the president wants to set us up so that there can be a conversation about the legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose," Gilchrist told MSNBC over the weekend. "That is a really unfortunate thing. That's not how we do democracy here in the United States, and we need to be ready to respond to that forcefully."
