Doctor says ‘pathetic’ Trump is either suffering from ‘incurable madness’ or he’s intentionally trying to manipulate Americans

Published

An MSNBC panel couldn’t help but note how “pathetic” President Donald Trump is demanding that he be popular and as well-liked as Dr. Anthony Fauci is in his daily press conference Tuesday.

Responding to it on her Wednesday show, Wallace showed a clip of Trump whining, “woe is me.”

“As the mother of an 8-year-old, this is conduct reprehensible in small children,” she said after showing the clip. “And it is so unbecoming of our country’s leader. I don’t even know what to say about it, but the idea that he can’t wrap his brain around the fact that Fauci has public support because Fauci is viewed as being motivated by the public good is the piece that I feel endangers all of us.”

Dr. Irwin Redlener, the director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness, explained that Trump’s “self-pitying” is “pathetic” and “incomprehensible.”

It’s “a side of him we really haven’t quite seen before, but what we’re dealing with,” Dr. Redlener said. “If you combine that with his statements on the hydroxychloroquine, we either have a case of really incurable madness or some sort of intentional manipulation of public opinion around some absolutely dishonest statements about the effect of hydroxychloroquine added to the pantheon of untrue statements that the president has made for, you know, since the beginning of all of this. I can only imagine, and maybe this is some sort of twisted logic in trying to create some image that will help him in November for his re-election. I just don’t see how that all works. And he’s looking increasingly unstable. And the promotion of this pitiful recurrent, you know, imagination is just one of many. I don’t know how they’ll create a narrative around COVID in November, but I suppose they’ll keep trying.”

Veteran Republican operative shames the GOP — and warns they won’t get rid of Trumpism ‘for at least a generation’

Published

on

Stuart Stevens is a veteran Republican campaign operative from five presidential races. When he spoke to PBS's Judy Woodruff Wednesday, he lamented the GOP failed the moral test it was presented with Donald Trump.

"Well, I think there's been two strains in the party. Call it an Eisenhower strain going back to the '50s and a McCarthy strain," Stevens said, recalling when the GOP would talk about expanding their party and bringing in more African-American voters. "Now we don't even hear any talk anymore of a big tent. And we seem to have settled into a very comfortable white grievance identity."

In his response to President Donald Trump's bizarre interview with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, "Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers explained the Trump interview in a single photo:

"You know something has gone horribly wrong when a journalist interviewing the president looks like that," said Meyers. "That's the face you make when your dad gets drunk and decides to tell you about the night you were conceived."

Former Trump ambassador tells Rachel Maddow ‘it’s a big red flag’ that Trump is trying to hide investigation of Turnberry scam

Published

on

Former acting ambassador to the U.K., Lewis Lukens, told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that the inspector general raised questions to him and embassy staff in the U.K. about President Donald Trump's demand for the ambassador to lobby for the British Open to be hosted at Trump's golf course in Scotland.

According to Lukens, he told those questioning how to go about getting the British Open at Trump Turnberry, and Lukens said he was clear that it was "unethical" and "possibly illegal." Still, Trump's cronies persisted.

He explained that when the inspector general did the investigation they went back to Washington to write up the report and that it should have been released by now, but it obviously has not. Today, the acting IG, who took over just three months ago, abruptly resigned.
