‘You’d perjure yourself’: Trump mocked for saying he’d ‘strongly consider’ testifying

Published

In a series of tweets this Monday morning, President Trump lashed out at “Our Crazy, Do Nothing” Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, for allegedly suggesting that he “testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt” — a sentiment that Trump said that he might be open to.

“She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!” Trump tweeted.

Trump was referring to Pelosi’s appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation this Sunday, where she said Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants.”

“He has every opportunity to present his case,” she said adding that “what the president did was so much worse than even what Richard Nixon did, that at some point Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue.”

Trump floating the idea that he could testify sparked a variety of reactions in the comment thread beneath his tweet, including many people who relished the idea of the President giving his account of the scandals enveloping the White House while under oath.

"We thought we were immune to it," said Tim Phillips, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Beyond Conflict. "When we looked at our own problems, we thought: 'Of course we have some big issues, but we're in a sense immune from an us-versus-them mindset, a sectarian mindset, where there could be real conflict.'"

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Jared Kushner for bragging about Trump’s COVID-19 disaster

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough blasted Jared Kushner for bragging about actions that resulted in tens of thousands of deaths from the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser told reporter Bob Woodward the president had wrested control of the pandemic response away from the doctors, and the "Morning Joe" host said that admission was damning.

"We actually have the 'Perry Mason' moment," Scarborough said. "We actually have the person on the witness stand who is actually testifying against interests for himself and for Donald Trump. They deliberately, deliberately 'freed' America from the doctors and the scientists, so by the end of this, 400,000 people will be dead. Almost as many Americans who died in World War II."
