Trump actually is ‘dumb enough’ to confess his crimes: Chris Hayes says Americans should ‘read the transcript’

Published

on

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes examined President Donald Trump’s intelligence through the lens of the impeachment inquiry during a special Friday edition of “All In” before a live studio audience.

The host noted one defense Trump has used is that he couldn’t possibly be dumb enough to request foreign election assistance in a call heard by a bunch of people.

“Another Fake News story out there – It never ends! Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various U.S. agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself,” Trump tweeted. “Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially ‘heavily populated’ call”?

“Could the president be so dumb as to commit a flagrant abuse of power, extort a foreign country while a bunch of people were listening? The answer is yes, he could be,” Hayes said. “So could he also be so dumb to tell everybody to read a transcript that incriminates him?”

So Hayes read the transcript.

“He does the one thing — the one thing everyone’s worried he will do and that no one else is dumb enough to do. Right? Because who would be dumb enough to explicitly extort the Ukrainian government for dirt on the president’s political rival when a bunch of people are listening? Well, there’s one person in government who is dumb enough to do it,” Hayes noted.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany explained Wednesday that President Donald Trump went to St. John's Church with his Bible because it's what former President George W. Bush did after Sept. 11 and what Winston Churchill did during World War II. The problem, of course, being that protesters demanding an end to police brutality aren't the same as Al-Qaeda or the Nazis and it's police killing unarmed Americans, not Black Lives Matter.

Team Trump ‘running for cover’ after attempt to crack down on protests results in ‘humiliation’: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Wednesday, columnist Jennifer Rubin writes that the "tear-gassing of peaceful protesters, the debasement of St. John’s Episcopal Church, the wholly inappropriate participation of the defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the goose step across Lafayette Square" were actually President Trump's way of compensating for reports that he retreated to an underground bunker when protesters got close to the White House.

Rubin points to Trump's claim that he went to the bunker for an "inspection." But according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, he had no idea where Trump and the rest of his entourage were going.
