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.

Published

President Donald Trump blew a gasket on Sunday afternoon after seeing -- or possibly just hearing about -- a contentious interview conducted by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace with Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA).

Taking to Twitter, Trump denounced the longtime Fox host as "nasty and obnoxious."

"@SteveScalise blew the nasty & obnoxious Chris Wallace (will never be his father, Mike!) away on Chris’s lowest rated (unless I’m on) morning show. This kind of dumb and unfair interview would never have happened in the @FoxNews past. Great job Steve!" Trump tweeted.
