Trump acting like an ‘idiot’ and ‘actively working against the health of the American people’: MSNBC’s Mika

Published

on

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski blasted President Donald Trump for acting like an “idiot” and setting a horrible example during the coronavirus pandemic.

The “Morning Joe” co-host said the president had neglected his duties throughout the public health crisis and needlessly politicized safety measures that can be easily taken by anyone to help prevent the virus from spreading.

“Since this president didn’t respond to this pandemic and that is clearly logged in the history books for all Americans to see and hear and read for years to come,” Brzezinski said, “now you have a president who is actively working against the health of the American people in his words and in his actions. He won’t wear a mask, he makes fun of people who wear masks, he makes sure his staff makes fun of people who wear masks. Masks can keep this virus from spreading. The president won’t wear one and makes fun of people who wear them, and actually sets an example that you actually should not wear a mask, when it’s the one thing that could actually keep this from spreading because we are so unprepared for this.”

“Same with testing,” she added. “He keeps saying if we test more, we’ll have more cases. Yes, idiot, we want to know where the virus is and where it isn’t so we can protect people. Had we had testing in place, maybe at this point we’d be at mass testing. Maybe there’d be testing before people go into concerts and rallies so that we could make sure that these arenas and these public venues are safe, so that we could make sure that this economy could reopen.”

Brzezinski said the evidence was clear, and the president had bungled the response over and over, costing thousands of lives and causing economic devastation.

“Again and again and again the president works against himself and the health of the American people and continues to botch this,” she said. “That’s what we’re seeing happening. This is not me, you know, having a slant on it — this is the reality. Look at the science, talk to your doctor, talk to scientists you trust and tell me that what I’ve said isn’t exactly the case in terms of the example he’s setting as a leader to try and keep this country safe.”

Stephen Colbert hilariously mocks Oklahoma governor ‘Stitt for brains’ for catching COVID-19 after ignoring masks

Published

on

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) revealed Wednesday that he is positive for the coronavirus. It could have been the exposure he incurred at the Trump rally. Or it could have been all of those times he went out without a mask saying he was "social distancing." Either way, it was something "A Late Show" host Stephen Colbert found to be a hilarious example of schadenfreude.

"All the people in charge who told us the pandemic wasn't a big deal are looking big dumb right now like Oklahoma governor and chunky Dracula Kevin Stitt, cuz remember Trump's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma full of unmasked open mouth screamers," said Colbert. "Lots of people called it a terrible idea, said it should be canceled. Not Governor Stitt."

The problem isn’t the campaign manager — it’s Trump: Republican analyst

Published

on

Switching up the campaign manager four months before the election when the latest poll shows you 12 points down has nothing to do with the campaign's leadership, Republican analyst Amanda Carpenter explained on CNN Wednesday.

"The problem isn't that Donald Trump has a bad campaigner," said Carpenter in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. "They're raising tons of money. They have a boatload of surrogates. The problem is that he has a bad presidency. And no one -- no one, no spin master, not Kellyanne Conway, not Brad Parscale can spin the most important number of this election, and that's -- at present, 137,000 dead and rising. And so what we need to see if Donald Trump wants to turn this around is to turn around his white house. And I have four words of advice: More Fauci, less Kayleigh."

Here’s what you need to know about Bill Stepien — the man who just took over Trump’s fledgling campaign

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced that his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, is being shoved out of his role given the failures the campaign has suffered over the past seven months.

In his place, for now, at least, will be Bill Stepien.

If that name sounds familiar, it may be because Stepien was part of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's Bridgegate scandal, where, as punishment to Mayor Mark Sokolich, two of three toll lanes were closed during a Monday morning rush hour and weren't reopened until Friday.

The court case quoted Bill Stepien's name over 700 times, including an email in which he claimed, "It will be a tough November for this little Serbian." The mayor was born in Fort Lee, and his lineage isn't Serbian, it's actually Croatian.
