Addressing Donald Trump’s response to a bombshell Atlantic report that he reportedly called dead U.S. military members “losers” for dying for their country, MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough said the president’s defensive comments show a man who is “shaken” that he has been exposed.
Following co-host Mika Brzezinski reading Trump’s tweets that came out after the story broke, Scarborough made the case that Trump knows that he has been busted just two months before the election.
“A senior official confirmed Jeffrey Goldberg’s story in its entirety, especially the comments about James Mattis and former Marine General John Kelly, Donald Trump’s former chief of staff,” Scarborough reported. “Donald Trump is correct in one thing he said last night, obviously shaken by the fact that his words were coming back to haunt him.”
“By the way, I think we know who the sources are, and they are people that have given decades of their lives to serving this country and they ‘re patriots, unlike Donald Trump,” he continued. “But Donald Trump is right: he has done things with the military that nobody has before. He has attacked war heroes like John McCain, and we have him on tape calling John McCain a loser for being captured because of service as a young man with other heroes.”
“He also has denigrated and undermined NATO, an alliance that helped us defeat Soviet communism,” he added. “He’s been trying to gut it for the past four years, he undermined our military and our allies in Syria, abandoned long-term allies there. He’s taking troops out of Germany right now, also causing consternation to our allies and also causing consternation to our troops.”
‘No wonder he’s losing suburban women’: Trump flattened for promise he’s putting ‘your husbands back to work’
President Donald Trump is drawing ire from women as his closing message to female voters is, "We’re getting your husbands back to work!"
Trump made the statement to a cheering crowd in Michigan Tuesday, though he didn't clarify what women should do if they work outside of the home and have been laid off due to the pandemic. It also appears the president has decided to ignore unmarried women entirely.
Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’
One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.
"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.
"I love them much more than the men," he added.
Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."
"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.
Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus
President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.
"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."
Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
