While dissecting Trump’s latest remarks about the state of the economy, Camerota pointed out that there was something deeply illogical about what the president is pitching to voters.
Specifically, she said that the president is touting the state of the economy just as major cities across the country are beginning to shut down again.
“I heard the talking points going haywire,” she said of Trump’s answers. “I heard something malfunctioning.”
CNN contributor Bakari Sellers then chimed in to say that incoherent talking points are the only thing Trump has left now that his administration has overseen a humanitarian catastrophe.
“We have a president who doesn’t have the necessary level of compassion, empathy, or understanding to tackle this issue,” he explained. “There are 130,000 people who have died because of this administration’s incompetence, their utter incompetence, and he can’t wrap his head around that.”
He then pointed to several Trump-loving governors in states such as Georgia and Florida to illustrate that the problem went far beyond just Trump.
“The Republican Party has become a party that’s enveloped itself in incompetence,” he said.

If Trump loses two more states it’s ‘ballgame over’: AP reporter
Appearing on MSNBC's " Morning Joe," Associated Press White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire explained Donald Trump's chances of being re-elected have reached the point where, if he loses the electoral votes of one more, he will be out of luck and out of office.
Speaking with co-host Joe Scarborough, Lemire was asked where Trump stands in the battleground states he so desperately needs.
"Both campaigns agree that there are six battleground states to decide this election: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, North Carolina, Florida," he began. "Now the president has to play defense and has had to spend resources and had to go the past week to places like Ohio, Texas -- Georgia is another one where he has to play defense. We don't see, outside of perhaps New Hampshire, a place where Democrats have to do the same now that the Trump campaign has ceded Michigan."
Morning Joe busts Trump for trying to scam the public with a fake tax cut proposal
Taking up the executive orders signed by Donald Trump on Saturday, MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out a big loophole in the president's proposal for a tax cut, saying he is hiding the fact that voters will be on the hook for deferred taxes after the election.
After first pointing out the president's contempt for Americans struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled the economy.
"It was a huge, gigantic nothingburger when you look through the policies at the end," Scarborough began. "In fact, some of the policies he put forth are going to hurt people, hurt small business owners the most. Again I go back to the payroll tax cuts -- economists, Republicans, Democrats, everybody is opposing this.
