Speaker Nancy Pelosi could drive President Donald Trump off the deep end by refusing to transmit the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for another 36 days, former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum explained on Monday.

Frum was interviewed by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on “The Last Word” about the standoff between Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on whether there will be a fair Senate trial of Trump.

Frum laid out a theory that he cited to Paul Rosenzweig of the R Street Institute, about how crucial the next 36 days will be.

“February 4th is the State of the Union,” Frum noted, of a date that was set by Pelosi — two days after the House of Representatives impeached Trump.

“If there’s been a trial and there’s been a sham here and the Senate has slapped together an acquittal, imagine the tone of President Trump on the 4th of February — triumphal, obnoxious, overbearing, ‘I win, I win, you lose, you lose.’ If the impeachment is still pending on the 4th of February, can you imagine how insane that State of the Union is going to be?” he asked.

“It’s going to be like the twitter feed,” he predicted. “It’s going to be like the Christmas twitter feed when the family is all gone.”

“It’s going to be an hour of paranoia and grievance and narcissism that is going to — as Paul suggests — that will terrify many of its supporters. So if it’s not wrapped up by the 4th of February, that could have consequences,” Frum noted.

Published

President Donald Trump is doubling down on his threat to cut funding from schools that decided to remain closed this fall during the deadly novel coronavirus pandemic.

Writing on Twitter, the president appeared to walk back his own administration's efforts to walk back his earlier threats to cut off funding for schools that don't reopen on schedule.

"Now that we have witnessed it on a large scale basis, and firsthand, Virtual Learning has proven to be TERRIBLE compared to In School, or On Campus, Learning," the president wrote. "Not even close! Schools must be open in the Fall. If not open, why would the Federal Government give Funding? It won’t!!!"

‘Betrayal’: Trump fuming over Brett Kavanaugh voting with majority in tax return cases

Published

on

According to Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press, Donald Trump is reportedly focusing his ire on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, along with Neil Gorsuch,  for siding with the majority of justices who ruled on Thursday that the state of New York must be given his tax returns as part of a criminal investigation.

Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" with co-host Willie Geist, Lemire was asked how the president -- and the White House -- are reacting to the setback for the president.

"You're at the White House, it's either a witch hunt or a big win depending on who you ask," host Geist began. "[Trump attorney] Jay Sekulow is also calling it a win. The president doesn't want his tax returns, financial records to see the light of day particularly before election day. What's the concern now with the two 7-2 decisions?"
